Many studies suggest that the substantia nigra, pars reticulata (SNpr), a tegmental mesencephalic structure rich in γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)- and cannabinoid receptor-containing neurons, is involved in the complex control of defensive responses through the neostriatum-nigral disinhibitory and nigro-tectal inhibitory GABAergic pathways during imminently dangerous situations. The aim of the present work was to investigate the role played by CB1-cannabinoid receptor of GABAergic pathways terminal boutons in the SNpr or of SNpr-endocannabinoid receptor-containing interneurons on the effect of intra-nigral microinjections of cannabidiol in the activity of nigro-tectal inhibitory pathways...

Pneumococcal meningitis is a life-threatening disease characterized by an acute infection affecting the pia matter, arachnoid and subarachnoid space. The intense inflammatory response is associated with a significant mortality rate and neurologic sequelae, such as, seizures, sensory-motor deficits and impairment of learning and memory. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of acute and extended administration of cannabidiol on pro-inflammatory cytokines and behavioral parameters in adult Wistar rats submitted to pneumococcal meningitis...

Oxidative metabolism of cannabidiol monomethyl ether (CBDM), one of the components of marihuana, was studied in the guinea pig. Cannabielsoin monomethyl ether (CBEM) was found to be formed with hepatic microsomes by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Experiments using various modifiers of enzymatic reaction suggested that, as in the case of cannabielsoin (CBE) formation from canabidiol (CBD), CBEM was formed from CBDM by the monooxygenase system including cytochrome P450. When cannabidiol dimethyl ether (CBDD), in which phenolic hydroxyl groups of CBD are masked with methyl groups, was incubated with liver microsomes and an reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-generating system, 1S,2R-epoxy-CBDD was identified by GC-MS...
