A marijuana extract called ‘Cannabidiol’ could help prevent painful neuropathy in patients receiving the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel, according to new animal experiments. “Our preliminary findings…indicate that cannabidiol may prevent the development of paclitaxel-induced allodynia in mice and therefore be effective at preventing dose-limiting paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy in humans,” according to the report by Sara Jane Ward, Ph.D., and colleagues of Temple University School of Pharmacy, Philadelphia.
