Cannabidiol-treated Rats Exhibited Higher Motor Score After Cryogenic Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injuries

Key Findings

Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive constituent of cannabis, has been reported to induce neuroprotective effects in several experimental models of brain injury. Cannabidiol improved locomotor functional recovery and reduced injury extent, suggesting that it could be useful in the treatment of spinal cord lesions.
