Modulation Of Cellular Redox Homeostasis By The Endocannabinoid System

Oxidative Stress

Key Findings

Collectively, the evidence presented in this review indicates that ECS activation or inhibition can convey detrimental and/or beneficial biological effects through altering cellular ROS levels, depending on the cell type and/or stimulus involved. Crucially, given the importance of redox status in the development of numerous pathologies, these findings identify ECS components as potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of oxidative stress-related neurological, cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.
