The object of the experiment was to verify whether cannabidiol (CBD) reduces the anxiety provoked by delta 9-THC in normal volunteers, and whether this effect occurs by a general block of the action of delta 9-THC 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 delta 9-THC, 1 mg/kg CBD, a mixture containing 0.5 mg/kg delta 9-THC and 1 mg/kg CBD and placebo and…

Cannabidiol inhibits the hyperphagia induced by cannabinoid-1 or serotonin-1A receptor agonists
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.
Effects of cannabidiol in animal models predictive of antipsychotic activity
TLDR
CBD has a pharmacological profile compatible with that of an “atypical” antipsychotic agent, though the mechanism of action is uncertain and may not be identical to that of the dopamine antagonists.
The Effects of Cannabidiol (CBD) on &Dgr;9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Self-Administration in Male and Female Long-Evans Rats
TLDR
Despite widespread cannabis use in humans, few rodent models exist demonstrating significant THC self-administration, and the examination of factors that affect its display remain important to establish procedures designed to assess the basis for and treatment of cannabis use and abuse.
Blunted Psychotomimetic and Amnestic Effects of Δ-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in Frequent Users of Cannabis
TLDR
The data suggest that frequent users of cannabis are either inherently blunted in their response to, and/or develop tolerance to the psychotomimetic, perceptual altering, amnestic, endocrine, and other effects of cannabinoids.
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.
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.
Effects of ipsapirone and cannabidiol on human experimental anxiety
TLDR
The results suggest that ipsapirone and CBD have anxiolytic properties in human volunteers submitted to a stressful situation.
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol in psychosis: A balancing act of the principal phyto-cannabinoids on human brain and behavior?
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CBD attenuates THC induced subjective and objective effects relevant to psychosis- but in a dose/ratio dependent manner.

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.
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.
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.
Intravenous Δ9‐Tetrahydrocannabinol: Effects on Ventilatory Control and Cardiovascular Dynamics
TLDR
Intense mental effects and anxiety prohibited higher THC doses, and the cardiovascular changes suggest betaadrenergic stimulation.
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.
Marijuana: Dose effects on pulse rate, subjective estimates of intoxication, free recall and recognition memory
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.
Marihuana in Man: Three Years Later
TLDR
The mechanisms by which marihuana alters mental functions are not likely to be answered in man, nor even answered soon by animal studies, so it may be necessary to look to additional animal studies to provide leads for pertinent future studies in man.
The effect on personality of reactivity to 1,2-dimethyl-heptyl tetrahydrocannabinol.
TLDR
MMPI and GT test interpretation of subjects resistant to the performance impairment caused by this compound showed them to be more intelligent, adventurous, and more hostile and aggressive than sensitive subjects.
Comparison of tetrahydrocannabinol and synhexyl in man
TLDR
These drugs differed from LSD in the following respects: sedation was prominent; euphoria was langer lasting; dreamlike sequences more pronounced; and physiological and biochemical effects were somewhat different, especially in the absence of sympathomimetic effects.
