The object of the experiment was to verify whether cannabidiol (CBD) reduces the anxiety provoked by Δ9-TCH in normal volunteers, and whether this effect occurs by a general block of the action of Δ9-TCH or by a specific anxiolytic effect. Appropriate measurements and scales were utilized and the eight volunteers received, the following treatments in a double-blind procedure: 0.5 mg/kg Δ9-TCH, 1 mg/kg CBD, a mixture containing 0.5 mg/kg Δ9-TCH and 1 mg/kg CBD and placebo and diazepam (10 mg) as… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Anxiolytic-like effect of cannabidiol in the rat Vogel conflict test
TLDR
The hypothesis that this cannabinoid has anxiolytic properties is reinforced, as CBD induced an anticonflict effect not mediated by benzodiazepine receptors or by non-specific drug interference on nociceptive threshold or water consumption. Expand
Δ9-Tetrahydrocannbinol Accounts for the Antinociceptive, Hypothermic, and Cataleptic Effects of Marijuana in Mice
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the acute cannabinoid effects of marijuana smoke exposure on analgesia, hypothermia, and catalepsy in mice result from Δ9-THC content acting at CB1 receptors and that the non-Δ9- THC constituents of marijuana influence these effects only minimally, if at all. Expand
Interaction between cannabidiol (CBD) and ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC): influence of administration interval and dose ratio between the cannabinoids
TLDR
The authors observed increased anxiety-like behavior in rats induced by THC alone and with CBD pretreatment and considered that these results were in “notable contrast” to former studies that found anxiolytic properties of CBD, including from the authors' group. Expand
Effects of Cannabidiol and Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol on Emotion, Cognition, and Attention: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized Experimental Trial in Healthy Volunteers
TLDR
Findings show that the acute intake of CBD itself has no effect per se in healthy volunteers and that a single dose of CBD prior to THC administration was insufficient to mitigate the detrimental impact of THC in the given setting, in support of a complex interaction between CBD and THC whose effects are not counterbalanced by CBD under all circumstances. Expand
Interactions between THC and cannabidiol in mouse models of cannabinoid activity
TLDR
As the amount of CBD found in most marijuana strains in the US is considerably less than that of THC, these results suggest that CBD concentrations relevant to what is normally found in marijuana exert very little, if any, modulatory effects on CB1-receptor-mediated pharmacological effects of marijuana smoke. Expand
Effects of cannabidiol and diazepam on behavioral and cardiovascular responses induced by contextual conditioned fear in rats
TLDR
It is suggested that CBD has anxiolytic-like properties similar to those of diazepam in a rat model of conditioned fear to context, and these effects were attenuated by CBD and diazepAM in the conditioned animals. Expand
The anxiolytic-like effects of cannabidiol injected into the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis are mediated by 5-HT1A receptors
TLDR
These results give further support to the proposal that BNST is involved in the anxiolytic-like effects of CBD observed after systemic administration, probably by facilitating local 5-HT1A receptor-mediated neurotransmission. Expand
Cannabidiol potentiates pharmacological effects of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol via CB1 receptor-dependent mechanism
TLDR
Cannabidiol potentiated pharmacological effects of Delta(9)-THC via CB(1) receptor-dependent mechanism, which may contribute in setting the basis for interaction of cannabinoids and to find a cannabinoid mechanism in central nervous system. Expand
Cannabidiol potentiates Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) behavioural effects and alters THC pharmacokinetics during acute and chronic treatment in adolescent rats
TLDR
CBD can potentiate the psychoactive and physiological effects of THC in rats, most likely by delaying the metabolism and elimination of THC through an action on the CYP450 enzymes that metabolise both drugs. Expand
Oral Cannabidiol does not Alter the Subjective, Reinforcing or Cardiovascular Effects of Smoked Cannabis
TLDR
It is suggested that oral CBD does not reduce the reinforcing, physiological, or positive subjective effects of smoked cannabis, as well as the effect of oral THC on smoked cannabis administration. Expand

Cannabidiol interferes with the effects of delta 9 - tetrahydrocannabinol in man.
TLDR
CBD was efficient in blocking most of the effects of Δ9-THC when both drugs were given together and decreased the anxiety component of Δ 9-THc effects, in such a way that the subjects reported more pleasurable effects. Expand
Influence of cannabidiol on delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol effects
Experiments investigating the possible interaction of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two major components of marihuana, were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions in aExpand
A comparison of LSD-25 with (−)-Δ9-trans-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and attempted cross tolerance between LSD and THC
TLDR
Patients tolerant to LSD were not cross-tolerant to THC, indicating that the mental effects of the two drugs are probably mediated by different mechanisms. Expand

Tolerance developed to all the effects of cannabidiol on the sleep-wakefulness cycle of male Wistar rats after once-daily injections of 40 mg/kg CBD for 15 days. Expand
TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL AND THE MARIJUANA‐INDUCED SOCIAL “HIGH,” OR THE EFFECTS OF THE MIND ON MARIJUANA *
TLDR
The results suggest that the subjective effects experienced by many marijuana smokers in this country are determined more by psychological factors than by the THC content of their cigarettes. Expand

TLDR
Intense mental effects and anxiety prohibited higher THC doses, and the cardiovascular changes suggest betaadrenergic stimulation. Expand
Comparative studies in man and in laboratory animals on 8 - and 9 -trans-tetrahydrocannabinol.
TLDR
In man △9-THC revealed to be nearly twice as active as its isomer, and there were no qualitative differences between both drugs neither in man nor in the laboratory animals. Expand
Interactions in man of delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol; II. Cannabinol and cannabidiol
TLDR
The THC‐CBD combination tended to delay onset and prolong effects of THC, while making them somewhat more intense, providing no reason to abandon the current practice of basing doses of marihuana for clinical studies solely on THC content. Expand
Clinical and psychological effects of marihuana in man.
TLDR
The primitive state of knowledge of the drug, the research problems encountered in designing a replicable study, and the results of the investigations are described. Expand
Interactions of marijuana and induced stress: forearm blood flow, heart rate, and skin conductance.
TLDR
The results revealed all physiological variables to be reactive to the stress task, and marijuana intoxication produced reliable increases in both pre-stress HR and FBF, and yet the physiological response to the post-intoxication stress period showed no significant decrement when compared with the placebo group.
