Non-psychotropic plant cannabinoids: new therapeutic opportunities from an ancient herb.
Bacopa monniera, a reputed nootropic plant: an overview.
The plant kingdom as a source of anti‐ulcer remedies
Despite progress in conventional chemistry and pharmacology in producing effective drugs, the plant kingdom might provide a useful source of new anti‐ulcer compounds for development as pharmaceutical entities or as simple dietary adjuncts to existing therapies.
Chemopreventive effect of the non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid cannabidiol on experimental colon cancer
It is concluded that cannabidiol exerts chemopreventive effect in vivo and reduces cell proliferation through multiple mechanisms in colorectal carcinoma cell lines.
Herb–Drug Interactions with St John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum): an Update on Clinical Observations
St John’s wort extracts, prepared from the aerial parts of Hypericum perforatum, contain numerous pharmacologically active ingredients, including naphthodianthrones, which are widely used for the treatment of mild-to-moderate depression.
Phytochemical compounds involved in the anti-inflammatory effect of propolis extract.
Cannabidiol, a safe and non-psychotropic ingredient of the marijuana plant Cannabis sativa, is protective in a murine model of colitis
Cannabidiol, a likely safe compound, prevents experimental colitis in mice and reduces colon injury and endocannabinoid changes associated with 2,4,6-dinitrobenzene sulfonic acid administration.
Colon carcinogenesis is inhibited by the TRPM8 antagonist cannabigerol, a Cannabis-derived non-psychotropic cannabinoid.
In vivo, CBG hampers colon cancer progression in vivo and selectively inhibits the growth of CRC cells, an effect shared by other TRPM8 antagonists, and should be considered translationally in CRC prevention and cure.
Increased endocannabinoid levels reduce the development of precancerous lesions in the mouse colon
It is concluded that pharmacological enhancement of endocannabinoid levels (through inhibition of endOCannabinoid hydrolysis) reduces the development of precancerous lesions in the mouse colon.
Green tea (Camellia sinensis) for the prevention of cancer.
There is insufficient and conflicting evidence to give any firm recommendations regarding green tea consumption for cancer prevention, and drinking green tea appears to be safe at moderate, regular and habitual use.
