Applying CBD to heart-muscle cells that were damaged by diabetes reduced inflammation and scarring of heart tissue, according to an article in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
“Collectively, these results … strongly suggest that (CBD) may have great therapeutic potential in the treatment of diabetic complications, and perhaps other cardiovascular disorders …”
In 2017, another study found that cannabinoid receptors could be potential new targets for the treatment of cardio-vascular disease caused by diabetes.
Additionally, animal research has shown that stimulating CB2 receptors increased the heart’s ability to withstand damage to the heart muscle that can cause blockage of a coronary artery and heart attack.
CBD is also reported to potentially protect heart tissue damaged by a type of chemotherapy used in breast cancer.
