January 10, 2022
"Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties. This new found property makes the cannabinoids useful in the treatment of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, e.g. limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia. Non-psychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method".
