Researchers in Korea have concluded that CBD “significantly rescues neurons from oxidative stress.” The study, according to an article on The Fresh Toast site, confirms that CBD has neuroprotection capabilities. In layman’s terms, that means that CBD could protect brains from neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

The study showed that, at least in a lab setting, CBD effects levels of hydrogen peroxide, which causes oxidative stress and is a primary driver of many neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and ALS.

Basically, CBD provides a protective coating on cells, diminishing cell death resulting from oxidative stress. More studies are necessary, and comprehensive human trials are a ways off, but this research is very promising for users of CBD who are concerned about these types of brain ailments.
