CBD oil increases the effectiveness of antibiotics

In many diseases of bacterial origin, doctors prescribe drugs to their patients to kill the small pathogens. These medicines are called antibiotics. Often they are the subject of critical discussions, as they can cause a certain harm to the patient on the one hand, and because they are often used too lightly by medical professionals. In addition, the inappropriate use of broad spectrum antibiotics can make bacteria resistant and no longer responsive to treatment with the drugs. As scientists have recently found through a study, the cannabis drug cannabidiol (CBD) can support the action of antibiotic supplements. So far, the effect of cannabidiol on antibiotics has not been studiedIn a collaboration between the Department of Biomedical Sciences and the Research Center of Optimal Health, both are institutions of the University of Westminster, Dr. Ing. Sigrun Lange and Prof. Jimmy Bell carried out the first study of this kind. There were also numerous researchers from other universities involved. In particular, they investigated the effects of CBD on the release of so-called membrane vesicles. These are components that influence the interaction and communication between the bacteria and that can reduce the effectiveness of antibiotics. Direct comparison of the release of membrane vesicles from the bacteria revealed that the influence of CBD was evident in both the number and structure of membrane vesicles. CBD could complement antibiotic treatment and avoid resistanceOver the course of the study, scientists tested the effect of CBD on various types of bacteria. It turned out that cannabidiol, especially in thin-walled bacteria, reduced the release of membrane vesicles and increased bacterial kill by the antibiotic. From this, the research team concluded that it is possible to combine the use of CBD with antibiotic treatment in some cases to increase their efficacy. This should also minimize the chances of resistance of the pathogens. Cannabidiol itself also has antibacterial propertiesIt has long been known that cannabidiol itself has an antibacterial effect. Until recently, nobody knew how this effect works in the body. The study by the University of Westminster now reveals that CBD can significantly affect the production and condition of vesicles, thereby weakening the bacterial pathogens. This makes cannabinoid an interesting addition to antibiotic treatments. As antibiotic resistance is becoming more common and can become a long-term threat to all humanity, one should not underestimate the value of this effect of cannabidiol. Source: GLASMANN, Dieter Klaus.
