Investigators at Italy’s Universita del Piemonte Orientale and Britain’s University of London, School of Pharmacy reported in the Journal of Natural Products that five cannabinoids - THC, CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN - “showed potent antibacterial activity” and “exceptional” antibacterial activity against two epidemic MRSA occurring in UK hospitals.
The authors concluded: “Although the use of cannabinoids as systemic antibacterial agents awaits rigorous clinical trials, … their topical application to reduce skin colonization by MRSA seems promising. … Cannabis sativa … represents an interesting source of antibacterial agents to address the problem of multidrug resistance in MRSA and other pathogenic bacteria.”
