Cannabidiol (CBD) is known to modify the effects of Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by decreasing anxiety and antagonizing other THC-effects. [] Key Method In context of the use of cannabis-based medicine extracts for therapeutic purposes, a study was performed in a double-blind and placebo-controlled cross-over design in which each of 24 volunteers (12 male and 12 female, age 18-45 years) obtained soft-gelatin capsules with 10 mg THC (THC-set), cannabis extract containing 10 mg THC +5.4 mg CBD (CAN-set) or…
Acute effects of a single, oral dose of d9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) administration in healthy volunteers.
TLDR
In healthy volunteers, THC has marked acute behavioural and physiological effects, whereas CBD has proven to be safe and well tolerated.
Pharmacokinetics of cannabichromene in a medical cannabis product also containing cannabidiol and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol: a pilot study.
TLDR
CBC may have preferential absorption over CBD and THC when administered together when administering together, and the dose of THC was similar to the doses of CBC, yet THC was quantifiable in fewer plasma samples than was CBC.
Cannabinoid tetrad effects of oral Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) in male and female rats: sex, dose-effects and time course evaluations.
TLDR
The effects of cannabinoids THC and CBD when administered orally on measures of pain sensitivity, body temperature, locomotor activity, and catalepsy in male and female Sprague Dawley rats were examined.
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.
Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Spectrum Yellow Oil in Healthy Participants
TLDR
A prudent approach to improve tolerability with Spectrum Yellow oil might involve initial doses no higher than 240”mg total CBD and 10.8 mg total THC daily in divided doses, with titration upward over time as needed based on tolerability.
Cannabidiol (CBD) content in vaporized cannabis does not prevent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-induced impairment of driving and cognition
TLDR
Cannabis containing equivalent concentrations of CBD and THC appears no less impairing than THC-dominant cannabis, and in some circumstances, CBD may actually exacerbate THC-induced impairment.
Cannabidiol-Δ-tetrahydrocannabinol interactions on acute pain and locomotor activity
TLDR
The results suggest that CBD may enhance THC’s antinociceptive and hypolocomotive effects, primarily prolonging THC”s duration of action; however, these effects were small and inconsistent across experiments.
Acute and chronic effects of cannabidiol on Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ⁹-THC)-induced disruption in stop signal task performance.
TLDR
CBD, when combined with Δ9-THC in clinically available dose ratios, does not exacerbate and, under restricted conditions may even attenuate, Δ9 -THC's behavioral effects.
Human Pharmacokinetic Parameters of Orally Administered Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol Capsules Are Altered by Fed Versus Fasted Conditions and Sex Differences.
TLDR
Findings may help to inform the guidelines provided by governing health bodies on the effects of cannabis, such as time to onset and duration of action, and aid health care practitioners in their prescribing practices.

Experiments investigating the possible interaction of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two major components of marihuana, were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions in a
Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Cannabinoids
TLDR
Properties of cannabis that might be of therapeutic use include analgesia, muscle relaxation, immunosuppression, sedation, improvement of mood, stimulation of appetite, antiemesis, lowering of intraocular pressure, bronchodilation, neuroprotection and induction of apoptosis in cancer cells.
Action of cannabidiol on the anxiety and other effects produced by delta 9-THC in normal subjects.
TLDR
The results suggest that the effects of CBD, as opposed to those of delta 9-THC, might be involved in the antagonism of effects between the two cannabinoids.
Simultaneous and sensitive analysis of THC, 11-OH-THC, THC-COOH, CBD, and CBN by GC-MS in plasma after oral application of small doses of THC and cannabis extract.
TLDR
The concentration ratio 11-OH-THC/THC was discussed as a criterion for distinguishing oral from inhalative cannabis consumption and was applied in a prospective pharmacokinetic study after single oral administration of 10 mg THC alone or together with 5.4 mg CBD in cannabis extract.
Effect of cannabidiol pretreatment on the kinetics of tetrahydrocannabinol metabolites in mouse brain.
TLDR
CBD pretreatment resulted in large increases in AUC and t1/2 of all THC metabolites in brain, with a modest increase in A UC of THC.
Effect of cannabis and certain of its constituents on pentobarbitone sleeping time and phenazone metabolism
TLDR
It is concluded that cannabis extract inhibits microsomal activity of mouse liver, chiefly by virtue of its cannabidiol content, and it is probable that cannabis consumption by man could lead to altered disposal of many other drugs, used in medicine or otherwise.

TLDR
The disposition of deuterium-labelled cannabidiol, 2H2-CBD, was studied in five young men who were marihuana smokers and a four-fold difference in the availability of the compound was noted for the five subjects.
