Cannabidiol upregulates melanogenesis through CB1 dependent pathway by activating p38 MAPK and p42/44 MAPK.

Oxidative Stress

Key Findings

Cannabidiol increased melanin content in human melanocytes. Our results suggest that cannabidiol might be useful as a protective agent against external stresses such as ultraviolet irradiation and oxidative stressors.
