Discussion around the effects of cannabinol administration on oxytososis/ferroptosis via regulation of mitochondrial function

Please join us for a conversation about a study published in 2022 in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine entitled: “Cannabinol inhibits oxytosis/ferroptosis by directly targeting mitochondria independently of cannabinoid receptors”, in which Dr. Liang, Dr. Maher and Dr. Sitbon discuss the potential use of a lesser known cannabinoid called cannabinol (CBN) in inhibiting oxytosis/ferroptosis via regulation of mitochondrial function and the potential implications on their findings.
