Antioxidative and Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Cannabidiol

Key Takeaways From This Case Study:

  • CBD has been shown to affect redox balance by modifying the level and activity of both oxidants and antioxidants. CBD, like other antioxidants, interrupts free radical chain reactions, capturing free radicals or transforming them into less active forms.
  • CBD protects lipids and proteins against oxidative damage by modulating the level of oxidative stress, which participates in cell signaling pathways.
  • CBD exhibits much more antioxidant activity (30–50%) than α-tocopherol or vitamin C.
  • CBD demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity and antioxidant effects by activating PPARs, either directly or indirectly.
