CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory effects, but CBD also is a powerful antioxidant.
And that’s why CBD is so great for those who have suffered or are suffering from a stroke! When people experience a stroke, then their body activates its immune responses such as inflammation and oxidation in all of the damaged cells.
Once the stroke is over, these cells will continue to be inflamed as well as oxidized. This actually causes heavy brain damage around all of the cells that are affected by the stroke. CBD, with all of its powerful anti-inflammatory effects, helps the victim get through the stroke with minimal brain damage and sometimes with none at all! Also with the powerful antioxidant properties, CBD helps the victim of the stroke recover from the occurrence. CBD is also excellent for helping prevent strokes in the first place. CBD is a major contributor to cardiovascular health. CBD has been shown to lower poor cholesterol and it also can increase good cholesterol. This significantly lowers the risk of strokes; because CBD increases blood flow in the body, it can help people to recover the use of their motor skills after experiencing a stroke. Since paralysis is a usual consequence of a stroke, sometimes physical therapy is needed for recovery. CBD is very promising for these patients. CBD significantly helps to speed up the recovery process from a stroke. Also because strokes are so painful, CBD has been shown to supply pain relief for those suffering with neurological pain. They say it feels as if they’re being stabbed or electrocuted due to the amount of cell death in their brains. CBD is a safe way to relieve a lot of pain experienced by stroke victims.
