New PharmGKB pathway for Cannabidiol Pharmacokinetics

PharmGKB released a new pharmacokinetics pathway for Cannabidiol, a phytocannabionoid found in the Cannabis sativa plant approved to treat two rare forms of epilepsy.

The pathway was produced by graduate student Kris Oreschak from the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus with guidance from scientific curator Dr Caroline F. Thorn. While there are currently no published studies documenting the pharmacogenomics of cannabidiol, many pharmacogenes are involved in its metabolism presenting future opportunities to look at variable responses.
