Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart and/or blood vessels. Accumulating evidence suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) benefits the cardiovascular system by reducing stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure and soothing inflammation.
CVD typically refers to narrowed or blocked blood vessels, but other conditions can affect the heart’s muscle, valves or rhythm. It is usually associated with a build-up of fatty deposits inside the arteries (atherosclerosis) and an increased risk of blood clots. It can cause damage to arteries in organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys and eyes.
Symptoms may include fatigue, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, swollen feet or ankles, fainting or chest pain. Although CVD is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, it can often be largely prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.

THC products are psychoactive, causing one to become “high”. These are to be used with special caution in children, pets and persons prone to anxiety or stress. Depending on the unique situation, it may be appropriate to substitute THC with non-psychoactive THCA. CBN and 1:1 oils may also cause mild psychoactive effects.
However, if products are used correctly, it may be possible to avoid the psychoactive effect entirely. Should you feel uncomfortable or have any questions at any time, our trained team of staff are on standby to attend to your concerns.
