Can I take CBD for hypertension?
Asked 3 years ago
Will it inhibit the effects of my medication, or will it help it? What about if I take it at a different time to my medication? What kind of interactions are there between CBD and medication for hypertension? How do CBD and hypertension relate?

Some studies have suggested that CBD may help manage hypertension or high blood pressure. However, due to illegality issues that have surrounded CBD for many years, research to back the CBD's medical properties on humans is lacking.
Even so, CBD is thought to have potential therapeutic effects, including anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, antipsychotic, etc. Although available data suggest that CBD can help relax veins and arteries, there's no evidence that CBD can help with hypertension in humans.
However, studies on animals suggest that CBD may help increase blood flow and possibly lower blood pressure.
