Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phyto cannabinoid with therapeutic properties for numerous disorders exerted through molecular mechanisms that are yet to be completely identified. CBD acts in some experimental models as an anti-inflammatory, anti convulsant, anti-oxidant, anti-emetic, anxiolytic and anti psychotic agent, and is therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuro inflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively.
The neuro protective potential of CBD, based on the combination of its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, is of particular interest and is presently under intense pre clinical research in numerous neuro degenerative disorders. In fact, CBD combined with Δ(9)-tetrahydro cannabinol is already under clinical evaluation in patients with Huntington’s disease to determine its potential as a disease-modifying therapy.
The neuro protective properties of CBD do not appear to be exerted by the activation of key targets within the endo cannabinoid system for plant-derived cannabinoids like Δ(9)-tetra hydrocannabinol, i.e. CB(1) and CB(2) receptors, as CBD has negligible activity at these cannabinoid receptors, although certain activity at the CB(2) receptor has been documented in specific pathological conditions (i.e. damage of immature brain).
Within the endocannabinoid system, CBD has been shown to have an inhibitory effect on the inactivation of endocannabinoids (i.e. inhibition of FAAH enzyme), thereby enhancing the action of these endogenous molecules on cannabinoid receptors, which is also noted in certain pathological conditions. CBD acts not only through the endocannabinoid system, but also causes direct or indirect activation of metabotropic receptors for serotonin or adenosine, and can target nuclear receptors of the PPAR family and also ion channels.
