Does CBD thin your blood?
Growing numbers of people use CBD products, for an ever-expanding list of reasons. It’s a process that is supported by worldwide clinical trials focused on gathering evidence and insights into CBD benefits. But a major question (and one of our most popular) is, does CBD thin your blood?
One of the increasingly popular reasons for ingesting CBD is to create an improvement in the way blood flows around the human body.
It’s the sort of medical advantages that Cannabidiol (CBD) provides, beyond its existing value as a way to boost motivation and revitalisation in general.
So how can CBD affect blood and the circulatory system?
CBD and the circulatory system
There is a lot more information to be uncovered on CBD’s ability to thin blood – or indeed how it has such a marked impact on other natural bodily functions too.
What is understood so far is very interesting and promising.
Keep in mind that Cannabidiol may come from a cannabis or hemp plant, but it does not have the same chemical composition as “recreational cannabis”. It has no power to make you feel intoxicated or “high”. It is also not addictive, and according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), pure CBD provides “no evidence of public health-related problems”.
This legally available and increasingly popular natural remedy appears to have such a wide range set of health and fitness benefits due to the way it interacts with human “receptors”. It supports and stimulates the way our bodies carry out their own natural tasks and creates a “balance”.
This can even out mood, manage pain and inflammation and generally make us feel calmer and “recovered”.
One of the positive effects of using CBD is its ability to increase your natural supply of a substance called coumadin. This is a blood thinner.
As it is an anti-inflammatory agent, CBD could also be proven to have a positive effect on the cell linings of arteries and veins.
Medical science to back up recommendations
Research into how CBD can work with substances such as Warfarin are well underway, as medical scientists are keen to find new ways of tackling heart disease, one of the biggest causes of death worldwide.
There have already been research papers published on “anticoagulant activity” that results from using CBD, alongside its value in treating other blood-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes.
It all adds up to some very promising results and some interesting medical evidence of value on its way!
Meanwhile, CBD is recommended for use as a natural supplement, not to replace existing mainstream medications. If you have a blood clotting issue or a history of heart disease, please consult a medical professional before seeing for yourself how effective CBD is for thinning blood.
