I have high Bp and on 10mg amlodipine a day which is helping, but my BP is still very erratic I have heard that CBD oil can also help with high BP. Is this advisable or not?

Thanks

I don't know about BP, but CBD doesn't work for everyone. Perhaps you could ring the Blood Pressure UK helpline 020 7882 6218

and ask for advice, Or email help@bloodpressureuk.org

The helpline is managed on a part time basis, please leave a message and your call will be returned by one of the healthcare team. Calls from landlines are typically charged between 2p and 10p per minute while calls from mobiles typically cost between 10p and 40p per minute.

Hi, have just looked at the studies and it would seem that it does reduce bp in some studies, also if you are a stresshead it reduces the anxiety which can cause high bp, so I think worth a try. Not sure of dose tho?

I've been taking CBD oil for about nine months and have not felt many of the improvements some claim. It certainly has not helped my BP nor my insomnia.

Trust me I'm a doctor could not find much in it although the maker of the brand I buy claims their tests were not the same as the ones that support their claims.

I don't think that it will interfere with your BP meds. Like homeopathy I think it works for some but not for others.
