Several studies have shown that CBD as a multitarget molecule, functions as an adaptogen, as a modulator, and has antioxidant properties. In animal models, the progression of several cancer types was suppressed by CBD. Furthermore, it has been found that an increase of autophagy and apoptosis in cancer cells is triggered by CBD and THC coadministration, followed by radiation therapy. CBD was also shown to play a role in suppressing cell proliferation and enhancing apoptosis in different types of cancer models. Studies in rodents have shown that CBD is involved in diminishing reactive gliosis, neuroinflammatory response and plays a role in promoting neurogenesis (Pellati et al., 2018).1
