Neuroprotective Effect of delta9-Tetrahydrocanabinol and Cannabidiol in N-Methyl-D-Aspartate-Induced Retinal Neurotoxicity

From the abstract:

In this study, we test the hypothesis that glutamate causes apoptosis of retinal neurons via the excessive formation of peroxynitrite…The neuroptrotection by THC and CBD was because of attenuation of peroxynitrite. The effect of THC was in part mediated by the cannabinoid receptor CB1. These results suggest the potential use of CBD as a novel topical therapy for the treatment of glaucoma.
