CBD is believed to have neuroprotective properties due to its interaction with the CB2 receptors in the brain. This interaction creates an anti-inflammatory response in the brain's immune cells, reducing the amount of damage caused by inflammation. Studies have shown that CBD may be able to encourage the growth of new brain cells and reduce inflammation in some people. It can also alter blood flow in the brain, reducing anxiety levels.
Research has been conducted into CBD's possible effects on brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's. It appears that CBD can inhibit the production of amyloid b and tau, which are characteristics of Alzheimer's disease, and this capacity may be related to its anti-inflammatory characteristics. Additionally, CBD may help combat some of the inflammation caused by a stroke and lead to better outcomes for stroke victims. CBD has also been studied for its effects on other diseases and disorders, as well as overall health.
Lower doses (less than 15 mg) of CBD may have more stimulating effects, while higher doses may have more sedative effects. Research has shown that CBD acts as an antioxidant and its antioxidant properties seem to protect the brain. CBD has a complex pharmacology, with activity in multiple objectives beyond those mentioned above. It can reduce anxiety, fear, and immobilization associated with stressful or life-threatening events.
During analysis, it was discovered that each of the samples contained a small fraction of THC in addition to CBD.
