Currently, heart disease is among the major causes of deaths in the US. In 2011 for instance the disease claimed about 788,000 lives.

Increasing evidence suggests that CBD may help with cardiovascular conditions like the heart disease and atherosclerosis.

Cannabinoids like Anandamide have generally been found to impact on various heart conditions positively and this has compelled scientists to conduct more research on CBD.

Studies have shown that CBD helps in relaxing the arterial walls. This lessens tension within the blood vessels. While relaxing the arterial walls, it protects arteries against inflammation. Using CBD has been proven effective as a way of reducing metabolic issues of increased glucose responses that are present in most heart disease sufferers.
