Cannabis and Its Impact on High Blood Pressure

However, we’re not there yet. Remarkably, despite the fact that cannabinoids have been studied for their potential as antihypertensive agents since the 1970s, no cannabinoid-based medications have been officially approved to treat hypertension. Moreover, despite an ever-growing body of anecdotal evidence and numerous studies suggesting the regular use of cannabis does appear to produce long-term lower blood pressure levels, we lack the sort of rigorous human studies that would allow physicians to confidently say, “Use cannabis to treat your hypertension!” Continue reading Cannabis and Its Impact on High Blood Pressure

How Cannabidiol (CBD) Works for Treating Anxiety

n recent years, CBD has generated a tremendous amount of interest among consumers, clinicians, and scientists. Why? Not only does evidence suggestCBD counteracts many of THC’s adverse effects, but numerous animalstudies and accumulating evidence from human experimental, clinical, and epidemiological studies suggest CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties. Administered acutely (“as needed”), it appears safe, well-tolerated, and may be beneficial to treat a number of anxiety-related disorders, including:

Panic disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Social phobia
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Study: Cannabinoid Use in the Treatment of Osteoarthritis Pain

Not only do these results add to previous evidence suggesting that cannabinoid therapies may be useful in the treatment of pain (e.g chronic and neuropathic pain, as well as pain resulting specifically from osteoarthritisand rheumatoid arthritis) and inflammation, but according to the researchers, they also “provid[e] a neurobiological basis for analgesic effects of the CB2 receptor” (i.e. the effect of cannabinoid therapies on pain are unlikely to merely be a result of emotion regulation).
