does cbd cause blood clots

√ Family history of blood clots

Anything that blocks the circulation of the blood can result in causing deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Here is a list of stressors that can contribute to triggering DVT:

Let’s take a closer look at what DVT is, and how it can be treated.

Research has shown that CBD oil can help alleviate symptoms associated with DVT. Specifically, pain and inflammation. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics found that CBD oil works beneficially in combination with factors found in the human body, resulting in anti-inflammatory properties. This can be helpful to alleviate the swelling that can accompany deep vein thrombosis (DVT). No side effects were present in the study.

The short answer is… no. CBD oil, or any other form of CBD, does not cure deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

What is DVT and How Does it Happen?

Reduce sitting for prolonged periods of time. For example, sitting at your desk at the office, or traveling in a car or plane. Take breaks every 2 to 3 hours by getting up and walking around. Stretch your leg muscles while in a seated position. Raise and lower your heels and toes alternately. Refrain from crossing your legs.

Blood coagulation studies were conducted to determine the possible anti-/prothrombotic effect of an organic cannabis extract and the three major cannabinoids, THC, CBD and CBN. The in vitro effect of the cannabis extract on thrombin activity produced an IC50 value of 9.89 mg/ml, compared to THC at 1.79 mg/ml. It was also found that the extract, THC and CBN showed considerable inhibition of thrombin-induced clot formation in vitro with IC50 values of 600, 87 and 83 microg/ml for the extract, THC and CBN respectively. In an in vivo model used to determine clotting times of lean and obese rats treated with a cannabis extract, 50% clotting times were found to be 1.5 and 2 fold greater than their respective control groups, supporting the results obtained in the in vitro model. The study thus shows that Cannabis sativa and the cannabinoids, THC and CBN, display anticoagulant activity and may be useful in the treatment of diseases such as type 2 diabetes in which a hypercoagulable state exists.
