Researchers believe that by taking CBD oil you can prevent the damage from an ischemic stroke, and perhaps even eventually reverse it.
A team at Fukuoka University in Japan recently conducted a study investigating whether CBD could be an effective treatment option during rehabilitation. The results of their preliminary research studies, found that CBD shows encouraging signs as a potential post-stroke therapy for ischemic strokes in particular.
The existing body of research seems to show speedier and broader recovery in patients and incredible neuroprotection. The Journal of Neurochemistry also published a study showing that the activation of the cannabinoid receptors – something done naturally by cannabis and cannabinoids – may also protect neurons and greatly improve motor recovery following an ischemic stroke.
