  • Cannabidiol (CBD) and its analogs: A review of their effects on inflammation (2015)

    Until 1963 the structure of the CBD was not completely elucidated, and THC was thought to be the most powerful and active component of cannabis, a belief that was mostly due to its psychoactive effects. Therefore, the therapeutic benefits of CBD were minimized for a long time. This study focuses on the therapeutic and anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD. View study

  • Cannabidiol administration after hypoxia-ischemia to newborn rats reduces long-term brain injury and restores neurobehavioral function (2012)

    CBD has been shown to have short-term neuroprotective effects in the immature brain, suggesting that it could be used as a neuroprotective agent for neonatal hypoxiaeischemia. View study

  • Cannabidiol and (?)?9-tetrahydrocannabinol are neuroprotective antioxidants (1998)

    These data suggest that the non-psychotropic cannabinoid of natural origin CBD has therapeutic potential for the treatment of neurological oxidative disorders such as cerebral ischemia. View study

  • Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids reduce microglial activation in vitro and in vivo: relevance to Alzheimer's disease (2011)

    Based on the results of this study it was found that cannabidiol (CBD) has the ability to modulate the function of the microglial cell in vitro, inducing beneficial effects in an in vivo model of Alzheimer’s disease, thus indicating that CBD has the potential to represent a new therapeutic approach to treat this disease.
