Adrian Devitt-Lee is Project CBD’s chief science writer and a PhD candidate in applied math at the University College in London. He is the co-author of several articles in peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Physiology, F1000Research, SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, and Physica A.
β-caryophyllene (BCP) is a terpene present in cannabis as well as many dark green, leafy vegetables. This CB2 activator could be beneficial in treating many problems associated with type 2 diabetes.
Some research has shown that caffeine can amplify the short-term forgetfulness caused by THC. A new study indicates that the caffeine may block other effect of cannabinoids.
It is increasingly recognized that cannabidiol can moderate many of the effects of THC, but the mechanisms by which CBD does this aren’t obvious. The neurotransmitter adenosine may be one important link.
Dosing CBD and other cannabinoids is challenging. An article in Molecules detailed the absorption and kinetics of a new formulation of self-emulsifying CBD.
Researchers from eight different countries recently collaborated on an article warning about the dangers of teens falling in love.
The protective effect of cannabinoids for those living with Type 2 diabetes and obesity is particularly pronounced among people with schizophrenia. Why?
A recent study from pharmacologists at the University of Minnesota examined how eating a meal affects the absorption of CBD.
One broad effect of CBD and THC is the stimulation of neurogenesis — the production and integration of new neurons in the brain.
Recent research has indicated a role of endocannabinoids in endometriosis and related diseases.
Terpenoids — the volatile compounds that give many plants their smell — appear to confer some of the medical effects of cannabis. Caryophyllene (BCP) and its derivative caryophyllene oxide (BCPO) are particularly significant terpenoids found in many green leafy vegetables.
