CBD Tinctures and My Blood Pressure


What do you know about white lab coat syndrome? If you’re like me, you might have a bad case of white lab coat syndrome when you go to the doctor. I exercise 5-6 days a week, take no medications, and my blood pressure is normally 110/70. Most of my life I was treated by family members who were doctors or surgeons so I’m not a fan of hospitals or other doctors. When I go to the hospital or a doctor’s office my blood pressure can increase to 130/90 simply because of nerves. This is where taking CBD on a regular basis helps out. 

I half-jokingly tell the nurses the only people who like doctors or hospitals are couples having babies, people getting plastic surgery, and doctors making money. When I’m taking CBD it helps decrease inflammation in my blood vessels while also helping to dilate them. CBD also helps my brain release serotonin and dopamine relaxing me and keeping me calm. Less inflammation, dilated blood vessels, and being a bit more relaxed is how our CBD helps me maintain my lower blood pressure when visiting the doctor.

The trick is consistently ingesting enough CBD tinctures for it to be effective. And to be able to afford it on a monthly basis. If our potent CBD can help me lower my blood pressure and potentially ward off heart attacks, strokes, heart palpitations, fatigue, or dementia because I have better blood flow, imagine how it might help you.  Like the motivational speaker Zig Ziglar used to say, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily.” The same is true for CBD, eating healthy, vitamins, or exercise. These good habits are the compound interest for improved health.
