“CBD’s anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects are in part attributable to its inhibition of adenosine reuptake. By delaying the reuptake of this neurotransmitter, CBD boosts adenosine levels in the brain, which regulates adenosine receptor activity. These receptors have broad anti-inflammatory effects throughout the body.”
How CBD Works
“According to a team of Stony Brook University scientists, CBD functions as an anandamide reuptake and breakdown inhibitor, thereby raising endocannabinoid levels in the brain’s synapses. Enhancing endocannabinod tone via reuptake inhibition may be a key mechanism whereby CBD confers neuroprotective effects against seizures, as well as many other health benefits”.
Medical Marijuana & Cannabinoid Science
“Jose Alexandre Crippa and his colleagues at the University of San Paulo in Brazil and King’s College in London have conducted pioneering research into CBD and the neural correlates of anxiety. At high concentrations, CBD directly activates the 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine) serotonin receptor, thereby conferring an anti-anxiety effect. This G-coupled protein receptor is implicated in a … Continue reading Medical Marijuana & Cannabinoid Science
Cannabinoids for Therapy
“There have been some early clinical trials of cannabinoids in treating cancer in humans and more studies are planned….studies so far have shown that cannabinoids can be safe in treating cancer”
Marijuana and Cancer
“More recently, scientists reported that THC and other cannabinoids such as CBD slow growth and/or cause death in certain types of cancer cells growing in lab dishes. Some animal studies also suggest certain cannabinoids may slow growth and reduce spread of some forms of cancer.”
American Cancer Society
“Studies have long shown that people who took marijuana extracts in clinical trials tended to need less pain medicine.”
THC vs CBD
“Different compounds in marijuana have different actions in the human body. For example… Cannabidiol (CBD) can help treat seizures, can reduce anxiety and paranoia, and can counteract the “high” caused by THC.”
