Cannabidiol Impacts the Bezold-Jarisch Reflex by way of TRPV1 and 5-HT3 Receptors and Has Peripheral Sympathomimetic Results in Spontaneously Hypertensive and Normotensive Rats.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a nonpsychotropic constituent of Hashish sativa L. It’s advised to be helpful in hypertension. Beneath in vitro situations, it prompts vanilloid TRPV1 and inhibits serotonin 5-HT3 receptors, i.e., receptors concerned within the Bezold-Jarisch reflex stimulation. The purpose of our examine was to match the cardiovascular results of CBD in spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WKY) rats. Experiments have been carried out on acutely aware, urethane-anesthetized, and pithed rats. In pithed SHR and WKY, CBD elevated coronary heart fee (HR) and systolic blood strain (SBP) and decreased diastolic BP (DBP) in a fashion insensitive to adrenalectomy. Propranolol strongly impaired the CBD-induced will increase in HR and SBP with out affecting the decreases in DBP. Desipramine additionally diminished the CBD-induced results on HR and SBP and additional elevated its results on DBP. In anesthetized rats, bolus i.v. injection of single doses of CBD induced short-lasting decreases in HR, SBP, and DBP, stronger in SHR than in WKY and prevented by bilateral vagotomy. The CBD-induced fall in HR however not in BP was diminished by the TRPV1 receptor antagonist capsazepine and nearly utterly abolished if CBD was re-injected after earlier administration. CBD diminished the Bezold-Jarisch reflex elicited by the 5-HT3 receptor agonist phenylbiguanide however not that evoked by the TRPV1 agonist capsaicin. In acutely aware rats, CBD didn’t have an effect on cardiovascular parameters. In remoted left atria, CBD decreased contractile drive. Conclusions: Cannabidiol (1) induces the Bezold-Jarisch reflex probably by way of TRPV1 receptors (which endure tachyphylaxis) extra markedly in SHR than in WKY; (2) inhibits the Bezold-Jarisch reflex induced by activation of 5-HT3 however not TRPV1 receptors; (3) has peripheral sympathomimetic, (4) vasodilatory, and (5) unfavorable inotropic results. The above properties of CBD needs to be taken into consideration when CBD is used for therapeutic functions.
