There have been some animal studies [5] that suggest that using CBD may lower blood pressure and heart rate in stressful situations, and possibly increase blood flow in the brain after a stroke. The mechanism by which CBD relaxes blood vessels is believed to stem from the endocannabinoid system (ECS). While the exact mechanism is unclear, it is believed that CBD interacts indirectly with CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors can be found in the endothelial lining of blood vessels, possibly being the trigger to relax your arteries and veins.

On the other hand, cannabidiol does not directly bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Instead, it causes a number of indirect actions leading to therapeutic benefits, such as activating TRPV1 receptors that regulate pain, body temperature, and inflammation.

Many of the cannabidiol products you’ll see in CBD stores or online are of lower quality, since – as with any product – it’s more expensive to produce high-end merchandise and it sells for a higher price, often with lower profit margins for the vendors.

How CBD Can Help With Hypertension

As Park explained, high blood pressure can be caused by many factors. Fortunately, there are several health benefits of CBD that could indirectly help with hypertension.

Many CBD oils come in dropperful (1 ml) doses of 10 mg/ml. Cannabidiol affects different people, particularly based on the weight, metabolism and body type. However, Park said the effective therapeutic dose is usually in the range of 20 mg to 300 mg, or 2 to 30 dropperfuls.

Park pointed to a study of 11 participants that showed CBD oil may lower the levels of cortisol produced in the body. This study showed that volunteers saw a significant reduction in cortisol production when given 300 mg and 600 mg of CBD compared to the placebo control.
