I have an issue with my heart which runs in all males on my father’s side of the family. We all have Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation accompanied by Supraventricular Tachycardia (AFIB-SVT). Paroxysmal == no known cause (similar to Idiopathic). We all don’t have any heart defects related to a chronic afib problem, just what I’ve described.
Half my family is on Beta-Blockers to prevent this and to increase the heart muscles efficacy with regards to blood pressure, heart function and lower heart rates. In particular, I’ve been on metoprolol for MANY years (also a great Beta blocker).
Since starting CBD Oil, I noticed a great change in certain things I would get all the time. Non-afib palpitations, afib or SVT. As CBD acts as a natural antiarrhythmic as well as lowering your blood pressure and heart rate, I’ve been able to start a taper down period of this Metoprolol. This magic oil has “fixed my heart” in terms of side effects caused by this afib and by lowering my blood pressure, It has allowed my heart to beat more efficiently with limited to no HRV (heart rate variability). Another reason I chose CBD Oil over pharmaceuticals.

ADDENDUM – 7 months later
Since starting a constant and regular CBD regimen, I have not had a SINGLE Palpitation, PVC or other arrhythmia including any form of Atrial Fibrillation or Supraventricular Tachycardia. I have been off of metoprolol for a few months now and since quitting THC altogether, I also found that THC was adding to SVT episodes. I added unisom generic tablets to my sleep regimen to substitute for the THC that I only used to get to sleep and it works perfectly. My heart has not been pounding at all during high anxiety situations, tough work problems, rough pain days, etc..
I have read similar success stories regarding adding CBD products to the body for AFIB and SVT and how the results have been absolutely amazing all around.
This is the oil I use

10 Months after starting CBD Oil.
For the 1000mg CBD Distillery CBD Product, I have been on it constantly for just under a year now. I have had no heart rate variability, or had any bouts of atrial fibrillation; be it small busts of palpitations or full blown arrhythmias for an extended time. I do get palpitations but I believe that is pretty normal – but not to the extent with which I used to get them. Perhaps I’ve had 10 over the year versus 10 a day.
My heart rate variability is gone and according to my heart tracker, my heart rate has gone from a resting average of 75bpm down to 62bpm. I peak at 100 at MOST unless I’m doing something strenuous but if I’m drinking a lot of caffeine I never break 100.
I still take 1 baby aspirin a day – JUST IN CASE – and I would suggest that to other sufferers and expect it.
Well now with over a year of CBD in my endocannabinoid system, I’ve noticed a lot. Let’s go through it. My BP has returned back to 120/70 consistently through all the doctors appointments I’ve had. My BPM at rest is between 60 and 70bpm – that’s also because of the lesser stress I have due to the oil. If I’m active I usually don’t exceed 110bpm but return back to rest rather quickly. Palpitations are basically gone except for normal 1-3 a week after something strenuous. All in all I’m happy with the 1500mg bottle I have from Green Roads and decided to buy some gummies from them as well so I can eat one when I may be slightly more stressed, slightly more pained or just want to relax easier.
