Cannabinoid CB2 receptors in human brain inflammation. (2008).
Author(s):C Benito, RM Tolo´n, MR Pazos, E Nu´n˜ez, AI Castillo, and J Romero.
The anti-inflammatory effects triggered by the activation of CB2 receptor make it an attractive target for the development of new anti-inflammatory therapies. In any case, more research is needed to corroborate the potential utility of cannabinoid-based treatments devoid of unwanted psychoactive effects. View study…
Anti-inflammatory effects of the cannabidiol derivative dimethylheptyl-cannabidiol – studies in BV-2 microglia and encephalitogenic T cells. ().
This study demonstrates that dimethylheptyl-cannabidiol (DMH-CBD) has anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative properties similar to cannabidiol (CBD). DMH-CBD acts by negatively regulating the expression of inflammatory cytokines and protecting microglial cells by inducing an adaptive cellular response against inflammatory stimuli and oxidative lesions.

Cannabinoids mediate opposing effects on inflammation-induced intestinal permeability. (2011).
Author(s):A Alhamoruni1, KL Wright2, M Larvin1 and SE O’Sullivan1.
Cannabinoids can modulate intestinal permeability in an in vitro model of inflammation. This study suggests that cannabis-based drugs may be of therapeutic benefit in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disorders associated with abnormal intestinal permeability. View study…
Cannabidiol provides long-lasting protection against the deleterious effects of inflammation in a viral model of multiple sclerosis: A role for A2A receptors. (2013).
Author(s):M. Mecha, A. Feliú, P.M. Iñigo, L. Mestre, F.J. Carrillo-Salinas, C. Guaza.
This study results highlight the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabidiol in this viral model of multiple sclerosis and demonstrate the significant therapeutic potential of this compound for the treatment of pathologies with an inflammatory component. View study…
Anti-Inflammatory Role of Cannabidiol and O-1602 in Cerulein-Induced Acute Pancreatitis in Mice. (2012).
Author(s):Kun Li, Jia-yan Feng, Yong-yu Li, Birol Yuece, Xu-hong Lin, Liang-ying Yu, Yan-na Li,Ya-jing Feng, and Martin Storr.
The treatment with cannabidiol or O-1602 significantly improved the pathological changes of mice with experimental acute pancreatitis, showing anti-inflammatory effects. View study
