Neuroprotective properties in cannabidiol
CBD exerts a number of beneficial pharmacological effects. It is anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, antiemetic, and antipsychotic. In addition, it has been shown to have neuroprotective properties. Consequently, it could be used at high doses for the treatment of a variety of conditions ranging in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and dementia, as well as diabetes and nausea. At lower doses, it has physiological effects that promote and maintain health, including antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotection effects. For instance, CBD is more effective than vitamin C and E as a neuroprotective antioxidant and can ameliorate skin conditions such as acne.
Despite progress in anti-emetic treatment, many patients still suffer from chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).
