Why did you choose to experiment with chloramphenicol and cannabidiol?
I chose to experiment with Chloramphenicol because Chloramphenicol was a known antibiotic that kills bacteria. In a study I found, I saw that Cannabidiol combined with an antibiotic was shown to kill the bacteria. Cannabidiol, based off the study has no effect on bacteria. Since Chloramphenicol at a high dose is toxic, I wanted to find the low concentration where there is no effect on Salmonella. I wanted to see the effect of the two compounds combined on Salmonella.
Why did you choose methanol as a negative control?
I chose methanol as a negative control because methanol is the solvent for Cannabidiol.
What results would you expect by changing the doses of chloramphenicol and cannabidiol?
I would expect to see the two compounds combined to inhibit or kill the growth of Salmonella.
For your future experiment, you mention wanting to do more tests with different amounts of chloramphenicol and cannabidiol. What do you predict your results will be once you change these amounts?
I predict that by changing the doses I would see something similar to the positive control, Ampicillin. Which is a well known antibiotic that works in killing bacteria.
Why cannablic oil is used? and why methanol is used as negative control?
I used Cannabidiol because in a previous study, Cannabidiol combined with an antibiotic was shown to enhance the effect of killing the bacteria. I used methanol as a negative control because Cannabidiol dissolves in methanol.
