Every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke and about 87% of all strokes are ischemic. A stroke is a sudden interruption in the blood supply of the brain. There are two different types of strokes, ischemic and hemorrhagic.
An ischemic stroke is caused by an abrupt blockage of arteries leading to the brain and a hemorrhagic stroke is caused by bleeding into brain tissue when a blood vessel bursts. Strokes are characterized by trouble walking, speaking, and understanding, as well as paralysis or numbness of the face, arm, or leg.
Treatment for strokes include prescribed medications and different types of therapy, such as physical therapy, speech therapy and stroke rehabilitation therapy. Medications used to treat strokes include Alteplase, Warfarin, Heparin, Clopidogrel, Apixaban, Atorvastatin, Irbesartan and Lisinopril.
Each prescribed medication contains negative side effects that include abdominal pain, severe menstrual bleeding, brown urine,bloody stool, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, coughing up blood, loss of appetite,headache, insomnia, skin rash, bluish-colored skin, muscle pain, joint pain, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, swelling of the face and body, urinary tract infection and upper respiratory tract infection.
CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound derived from the hemp plant known for its potential therapeutic effects. Studies show that CBD may help protect stroke patients from brain damage and even aid recovery by boosting brain function without the negative side effects of prescribed medications.
Research has shown that the brain becomes damaged by increased oxidative stress, inflammation, and excitotoxicity that follows a stroke.Administration of CBD after stroke can potentially help in preventing these three.
CBD is also known for its potential neuroprotective effects, which means administering CBD after a stroke may help in the protection of neurons as well as astrocytes from possible damage.
This leads to enhanced histological, neuro-behavior, biochemical, and functional recovery. Generally, research shows that administration of CBD immediately after strokehas a significant effect on recovery and it limits further damage.
