From: Cannabis sativa extracts protect LDL from Cu2+-mediated oxidation

Sample AC/μga IC50

THC-A 1.6 ± 0.5 NP c
THC 21 ± 2 0.33 (0.32–0.37)d

  1. aAntioxidant capacity per microgram (AC/μg) was obtained from the slope of latency ratio vs. μg of sample. bIC50 values were obtained from plots of protection against the log of concentration (Fig. 6 and S4). cNP, no protection. dAs the fits to calculate IC50 are log transformed the estimates for the IC50 are presented as mean with the 95% confidence intervals
