Synthetic Cannabinoid Activity Against Colorectal Cancer Cells

View details for Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research cover image

“Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide, and new therapeutic strategies are still required. Here we screened a synthetic cannabinoid library to identify compounds that uniformly reduce the viability of seven CRC cell lines.

We identified 10 compounds from the library that were able to reduce cell viability of CRC cell lines.

Conclusion: We identified three families of cannabinoid compounds that reduce CRC cell viability through a noncanonical receptor mechanism. Future modification of these compounds may lead to the development of novel therapies to treat this disease.”
