Cannabidiol reduces neuroinflammation and promotes neuroplasticity and functional recovery after brain ischemia.

Stroke Neurodegeneration (in general)

Key Findings

Short-term CBD 10mg/kg treatment prevented the cognitive and emotional impairments and attenuated hippocampal neurodegeneration and white matter injury. CBD also stimulated neurogenesis and promoted dendritic restructuring in the hippocampus of the test animals. Collectively, the present results demonstrate that short-term CBD treatment results in global functional recovery in ischemic mice and impacts multiple and distinct targets involved in the pathophysiology of brain ischemic injury.
