“Psoriasis is associated with increased production of reactive oxygen species which leads to oxidative stress.
As antioxidants can provide protection, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) on neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) formation in psoriatic and healthy neutrophils.
These results suggest that psoriatic patients neutrophils are at a higher risk of NETosis both in vitro and in vivo.
CBD reduces NETosis, mainly in psoriatic neutrophils, possibly due to its antioxidant properties.
The anti-NET properties of CBD suggest the positive effect of CBD in the treatment of autoimmune diseases.”
