Cannabidiol induces apoptosis and perturbs mitochondrial function in canine and human glioma cells
Cannabidiol (CBD), the major non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis, is frequently used both as a nutraceutical and therapeutic. Clinical studies suggest CBD may be beneficial for treating rare forms of epilepsy and inflammatory conditions but despite anecdotal evidence as an anticancer agent, little is known about the effect it has on cancer cells.
