What does it mean that CBD is neuroprotective?
As a neuroprotectant, CBD helps reduce damage to the brain and nervous system and encourages the growth and development of new neurons. Oxidative stress caused by, Traumatic Blows, Ischemia or Autoimmune and Genetic Disorders can cause temporary or permanent neural damage, but studies have shown that CBD is able to protect against this damage and improve recovery.
These findings suggest that CBD could be therapeutically beneficial for traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, spinal cord diseases, and strokes. CBD’s neuroprotective properties are also potentially beneficial in helping prevent and limit the progression of neurological disorders, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS), and Parkinson’s disease. More research to investigate CBD’s efficacy for promoting cell and neuron health are needed, but the evidence so far suggests that CBD could be used to minimize neural and cell damage and encourage healing.
