Cannabinoids Inhibit Human Keratinocyte Proliferation Through A Non-CB1/CB2 Mechanism And Have A Potential Therapeutic Value In The Treatment Of Psoriasis

Psoriasis

Key Findings

The cannabinoids tested (Delta-9-THC, CBN, CBD and CBG) all inhibited keratinocyte proliferation in a concentration-dependent manner. Our results show clearly that cannabinoids inhibit the proliferation of keratinocytes, thus demonstrating a therapeutic potential for the treatment of psoriasis, but further investigation is urgently needed to identify the mechanism by which they act in order to realise this potential.
