Biological Activity for (-)-Cannabidiol
(-)-Cannabidiol is a non-psychotropic constituent of cannabis that is anticonvulsive, antihyperalgesic and neuroprotective in vivo. GPR55 and weak CB1 antagonist (IC50 values are 0.445 and 3.35 μM), CB2 receptor inverse agonist and inhibitor of anandamide uptake (IC50 = 27.5 μM). Also inhibits FABPs and a weak agonist at TRP vanilloid receptors (EC50 = 3.5 μM).
