Nonpsychoactive cannabidiol prevents prion accumulationand protects neurons against prion toxicity.

From the abstract:

Our results suggest that CBD may protect neurons against the multiple molecular and cellular factors involved in the different steps of the neurodegenerative process, which takes place during prion infection. When combined with its ability to target the brain and its lack of toxic side effects, CBD may represent a promising new anti-prion drug.
