Cannabidiol Inhibits Proliferation and Invasion in Glioma Cells

By | Brain Health, Cancer, Glioma

 

This study out of Spain and published in October 2013, confirms the antiproliferative and antiinvasive effects of CBD in two different glioma cell lines. Interestingly, these effects can also be extended to glioma cells that are well known to be D9-THC-resistant. This data adds further insights into CBD antitumor action, showing its ability to influence multiple cellular targets in the two cell lines with partial overlap. Read More

We evaluated the ability of cannabidiol (CBD) to impair the migration of tumor cells stimulated by conditioned medium. CBD caused concentration-dependent inhibition of the migration of U87 glioma cells, quantified in a Boyden chamber. Since these cells express both cannabinoid…
