CBD helped kill superbugs in recent experiment

100% more powerful

A combination of CBD and the antibiotic Vancomycin was 100% more effective than the antibiotic on its own, according to newly published research in the scientific journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology.

(Vancomycin is used in life-threatening bloodstream infections and bacterial meningitis. Eli Lilly first marketed the drug more than 60 years ago, under the trade name Vancocin.)

Potent pair

According to the article, the researchers found that: “CBD, in combination with specific antibiotics, … selectively target bacteria … and reduce antibiotic resistance.”

The research team included the founder and chairman of GW Pharmaceuticals, as well as a visiting professor at University of Westminster who is also a scientific advisor to GW Pharmaceuticals.
