Best of cannabinoid science this week...

A review of CBD for epilepsy, multiple sclerosis & Parkinson's disease A literature review on the therapeutic applicability of cannabidiol in epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease

For anorexia nervosa, a review of eight studies found altered endocannabinoid profiles as well as some benefits from cannabinoids but also some harms The relationship between cannabis and anorexia nervosa: a scoping review

A review on treating chronic wounds with cannabinoids Chronic wound-related pain, wound healing and the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids and endocannabinoid system modulation

A review of cannabinoids for neuropathic pain Applications of Cannabinoids in Neuropathic Pain: An Updated Review

On CBDV helping to modulate neurogenesis Unravelling a novel role for cannabidivarin in the modulation of subventricular zone postnatal neurogenesis

In rat cerebellums (voluntary movement & motor skills), THC exposure showed both neuroprotective & neurodegenerative properties Exposure to Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol leads to a rise in caspase-3, morphological changes in microglial, and astrocyte reactivity in the cerebellum of rats

In a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, a low-dose combination of CBD & THC improved spatial memory while THC-only treatment increased anxiety & depressant like behavior Effects of Chronic, Low-Dose Cannabinoids, Cannabidiol, Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol and a Combination of Both, on Amyloid Pathology in the 5xFAD Mouse Model of Alzheimer's Disease

In a rat model of diabetes, the terpene beta caryophyllene improved glycemia control via enhancing glucose absorption & oxidation in the skeletal muscle Effect of β-Caryophyllene on oxidative stress, glucose metabolism in the skeletal muscle of high fat diet and fructose-induced type-2 diabetic adult male rats

In rat adults & breastfeeding babies, how THC & CBD moved through their systems The Effect of Route of Administration and Vehicle on the Pharmacokinetics of THC and CBD in Adult, Neonate, and Breastfed Sprague-Dawley Rats

In a mouse model of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, feeding them krill oil helped better than other unsaturated fatty acids via modulation of the CB1 receptor pathway n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in phospholipid or triacylglycerol form attenuate nonalcoholic fatty liver disease via mediating cannabinoid receptor 1/adiponectin/ceramide pathway

A computer investigation of whether cannabinoids bind to the P2X purinoceptor 4 ion channel (related to neuropathic pain, neuroinflammation & neurodegenerative diseases)
