CBD 101


What is Cannabidiol (CBD)? 

Can CBD make me high?

CBD does not have any of the psychoactive properties (like THC) associated with marijuana and will not impair the user or give them the “high” effect.  Industrial hemp that has less than 0.3% THC content can yield high-quality CBD that is 99% pure.

Disease Effects
Alzheimer’s disease Ant-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiapoptotic in in vitro and in vivo models of Aβ-evoked neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative responses.
Parkinson’s disease Attenuation of the dopaminergic impairment in vivo; neuroprotection; improvement of psychiatric rating and reduction of agitation, nightmare and aggressive behavior in patients. Multiple
Multiple sclerosis Improved signs of EAE in mice, ant inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties
Huntington’s disease Neuroprotective and antioxidant in mice transgenic models; no significant clinically important differences in patients.
Hypoxia-ischemia injury Short term neuroprotective effects; inhibition of excitotoxicity, oxidative stress and inflammation in vitro and in rodent models.
Pain Analgesic effect in patients with neuropathic pain resistant to other treatments.
Psychosis Attenuation of the behavioral and glial changes in animal models of schizophrenia; anti-psychotic properties on ketamine-induced symptoms
Anxiety Reduction of muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue, problems in concentration, improvement of social interactions in rodent models of anxiety and stress; reduced social anxiety in patients.

Cancer Antiproliferative and anti-invasive actions in a large range of cancer types; induction of autophagy-mediated cancer cell death; chemo preventive effects.
Nausea Suppression of nausea and conditioned gaping in rats
Inflammatory diseases Ant-inflammatory properties in several in vitro and in vivo models; inhibition of inflammatory cytokines and pathways
Rheumatoid arthritis Inhibition of TNF-α in an animal model


Infection Activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus
Inflammatory bowel and Crohn’s diseases Inhibition of macrophage recruitment and TNF-α secretion in vivo and ex vivo; reduction in disease activity index in Crohn’s patients
