CBD, which is well known for its anti-inflammatory effects, is also a powerful antioxidant… This is why CBD is so great for people who have suffered or are suffering from a type of stroke! When people experience a stroke, the body activates all of the immune responses such as inflammation and oxidation in the damaged cells.
But then even after the stroke is over, these cells will continue to be inflamed and oxidized, and this can cause heavy brain damage around the cells that are affected by the stroke.
CBD, with all of its powerful anti-inflammatory effects, can help the victim get through the stroke with minimal to no brain damage. Also with the powerful antioxidant properties, this can really help the victim of the stroke to recover from the occurrence. CBD is also excellent for preventing strokes in the first place. It is a major contributor to cardiovascular health. CBD has also been shown to lower bad cholesterol and increase the other kind of good cholesterol. This significantly lowers the risk of strokes, and because CBD increases blood flow in the body, this makes it so people are able to recover the use of their motor skills after a stroke. Paralysis is a common consequence of a stroke and consistent physical therapy is needed for recovery. But the use of CBD is promising for these patients and it significantly helps to speed up the recovery process from a stroke. Also because strokes are so painful, CBD has been shown to provide pain relief for people who suffer from neurological pain from a stroke. They say it feels like being stabbed due to the amount of cell death in the brain. The use of CBD is a safe way to relieve a lot of pain that is experienced by stroke victims.
