Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 active cannabinoids in cannabis. It accounts for 40 percent of the plant’s extract and is widely considered to be one of it’s most powerful constituents that heals cells. Emergency teams in cardiac and stroke units may soon use CBD’s neuroprotective effects to prevent the onset of debilitating symptoms developing from stroke and cardiac arrest.

Cannabis Exerts Powerful Neuroprotective Effects and May Soon Be Used in Stroke and Cardiac Emergencies

The reason cannabis is so effective medicinally is directly related to its ability to interact with receptors in the body which inhibit inflammation and prevent disease. Cannabis does this so well that few drugs can compete with its level of potency, which essentially comes without side effects.

A new study from China documents just how CBD can exert a potentially neuroprotective effect against brain ischemia/reperfusion injury. Brain ischemia is a common clinical condition, and is involved in many serious diseases, including stroke, cardiac arrest, and respiratory arrest. The treatment for this condition usually involves the restoration of blood flow as quickly as possible. However, this can cause secondary injury to the ischemic area, referred to as ischemia/reperfusion injury.
