Research

Scientific research has shown CBD may be therapeutic for many conditions. Relevant reports have been culled primarily from PubMed, online service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, as well as articles and stories from general interest publications. Most of the PubMed material consists of abstracts on preclinical research involving single cannabinoid molecules, test tubes, petri dishes, animal experiments, and in some cases human cell line studies. Although all mammals have cell receptors that respond pharmacologically to cannabinoid compounds, data from animal experiments and other preclinical research is not always applicable to humans.

Most of the reports that follow pertain to Cannabidiol. Occasionally articles examine the therapeutic potential of other plant cannabinoids—THC, CBDA (cannabidiol in its raw acid form), THCV, CBG, and CBDV, for example. Included are also a few studies that illuminate various aspects of the endocannabinoid system without focusing on CBD.
