Abnormal Cannabidiol is the Hope for Heart Disease Patients

abnormal-cannabidiol

Abnormal cannabidiol is yet another potential that lies in the cannabis or hemp plant. New studies show that this compound could be the ultimate remedy to about a quarter of the deaths that occur in America annually due to cardiovascular disorders.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cardiovascular disorders or Coronary Artery Diseases are the No. 1 killer in America. About six hundred thousand Americans die from heart disease each year, translating to one in every four deaths. That shows the magnitude of the effect this new treatment is likely to have in the country and beyond.

What is Abnormal Cannabidiol?

Abnormal cannabidiol is a synthetic compound that chemically belongs to the family of compounds found in the cannabis plant. The compound, like Cannabidiol, is non-psychoactive – meaning that it does not induce the ‘high’ or ‘stoned’ feeling one gets by consuming marijuana with some concentration of THC.

However, even though its molecular structure is, in many ways, similar to that of THC, CBD and the other cannabidiol compounds, abnormal cannabidiol reacts with the brain through different receptors from that used by the naturally occurring CBD and THC (Click to see article on CBD vs THC).

How could Abnormal Cannabidiol help with heart disorders and other conditions?

One of the highest risk factors for heart disease, aside from smoking and high cholesterol, is high blood pressure. Increased blood pressure is, in most cases, an indication of thinning of the blood vessels like veins and arteries.

There are several reasons this happens, with the major ones being accumulation of fats and hardening or narrowing of tissues around arteries and veins. This often leads to restriction or blockage of blood flow and, finally, heart attack or stroke.

In a study published in2003 by the British Journal of Pharmacology, researchers were able to ascertain, through testing the effects of abnormal cannabidiol on rats, that abnormal cannabidiol had the effect of vasodilation or the widening of blood veins and arteries by relaxing muscles on their walls. This unblocked the rats’ cardiovascular vessels, reduced blood pressure and averted potentially fatal heart attack or stroke.

Abnormal Cannabidiol does more than healing heart conditions.

It is not only Coronary Artery Diseases that this compound promises to treat. Other studies show that it can also trigger cell migration, which is critical in organ formation during embryonic development and even later in life. This potential in abnormal cannabidiol can be used to avoid both congenital cell defects and cell abnormalities in adults, which lead to different forms of cancer.

Even though several other studies have been carried out since then giving the same results, the compound has not been used on human beings as a treatment. Nevertheless, it is a future remedy that will save and change many lives of those who are victims to not only cardiovascular disorders but possibly many others.

    Anything on the treatment of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) with CBD. My cousin (67yo) who was in reasonably good health was diagnosed about six months ago when she suffered from continued “drop foot syndrome”. I didn’t find out about her condition until I called her about eight weeks ago and her husband told me she was bed ridden and could no longer speak! We immediately started her on lotion with high CBD content for paid she was also having and then approx. one week later added drops! She had immediate success with pain relief from the topicals. Within a week or so she began having movement in her left had which had been absent for a couple of months. Her breathing, which as you may know is what end the like of ALS patients had gone from 60% in Jan/Feb to 40% in March/April and by May/June had dropped to 20%, within three weeks of taking the drops her breathing had improved to 25%, she has improved attitude and feels better in general since starting. I just wondered if there was anyone else with ALS and what have they tried. All the best, Dr. Smith

      I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Addictions Counselor in the State of Indiana. I am also a cancer patient. I work with several women who have been diagnosed with ALS and MS as well as cancer. I have been using CBD myself for approximately 3 months with amazing results, particularly when it comes to pain. I had major surgery on the 14th of July (dermal transplant), with a fail of the transplant. I took opioid pain medications for two days ONLY. I have been supplementing with CBD, primarily vape because of the rapidity of its effect, and my doctors are amazed at my progress. I had surgery 1 week ago today to remove the transplant. I returned to work part time on Monday, have been using CBD (300mg vape oil) every 3 to 4 hours, 3-4 puffs, and am doing well. Sleep has much improved.
      As far as my MS patients, there are four total. Three of them decided to try CBD after I told them how it has helped me. Prior to starting its use, one was using a walker daily…she is off her walker, and walks unassisted most days (most is 5 of 7). The second states she is sleeping through the night, was not as physically challenged yet as the first, but has noticed a marked improvement in the shaking she was having. The third is varying her use as her doctor is not convinced, and has had less positive results with shaking and mobility, but states she is sleeping much more soundly.
      I tell EVERYONE about CBD. As an addictions therapist in a state that has one of the highest death rates from overdose on opioids in the country, I have seen a dramatic decrease in abuse in the population I work with (ONLY)>>>>I make no claims outside of my own experience. I have numerous patients that are not only on much lower doses of pain medications, BUT, I have several that were taking up to 5mg daily benzodiazepines that are either off of them entirely, or are taking them PRN (average use 2mg 3x weekly). I am keeping data for case studies.
      Doctor, I hope this helps. I absolutely believe in CBD.

    reject this claim and do not use a synthetic.

      Dude, there are so many novel synthetic Cannaboids with just as much therapuatic potential and in some cases more than what’s found in cannabis. Dronabinol (synthetic isomer of THC) and Nabilone (synthetic cannaboid) are already in use, URB597 is probably one of the most fascinating compounds out there and the antidepressant potential is promising. Over 25 percent of prescription drugs are derived from a plant source, either directly or synthesized for cost effectiveness. A dozen or so synthetic cannaboids have a shot at introducing the newest type of drugs with completely different actions than antidepressants, anxiolytics, pain killers etc. Without any research into plants for pharmaceutical drugs things like aspirin, benadryl, oxycodone etc don’t exist. The next new compound that changes medicine as other plant based medications have may very well be a synthetic cannaboid, or possibly a natural one not yet discovered. The possibilities are endless with regards to cannaboids, natural or man-made.
