Read onlline CBD may help keep the heart in rhyme though no major studies. (?)
Hi, @healthytoday – if you by chance remember where you read about CBD helping keep the heart in rhythm, I think other members might be interested in reading it.
I'd like to introduce you to @kariulrich @cynaburst and @johnbishop, who may have some familiarity with this concept.
You said in another post you have a-fib. Is CBD something you are looking into for your heart rhythm condition, @healthytoday?
I googled CBD and afib, and a couple of studies came up. You might do the same. I made copies for my cardiologist but he got impatient that no major studies had been done etc,, but as long as I stayed on Eliquis and Dofetilide I could add the CBD if I wanted too. (No, not a Mayo Dr.). Yes, I put a CBD creme on my thumbs and sometimes legs. Heart seems to be more stable, but hard to judge.

Hi, @healthytoday – Regarding whether CBD oil may help with keeping the heart in rhythm, I'd also like to introduce you to some members who have talked about a-fib, like @sistertwo @loli @crashnam @frande @tresjur. Also, a few members like @gailb @cdcc @merpreb @grandmar @gingerw who have talked about CBD oil may have some thoughts for you.
@healthytoday– What a wonderful name! I'm glad that you are healthy today! I know very little about heart disease itself but CBD oil has been linked to helping some patients with heart arrhythmiahttps://heart.bmj.com/content/97/24/e8.9?cited-by=yes&legid=heartjnl%3B97%2F24%2Fe8-q
I suggest that you also talk to your dr.. about this as there is medicine out there specifically for this. My mother had this and took medicine for it. I'm sorry but I don't remember the name. I would have loved to have given her some CBD oil! lol
Also, there are many different mixtures of CBD oil so bring what your doctor advises to a compassion center and the people will help you get started. ot many doctors know a lot about CBD oil yet, but with it's popularity they will have to soon! Also, if you use the cream you might must be careful if you take in internally too.
Let me know how you make out.
