Biosynthesis and inactivation of the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol in circulating and tumoral macrophages. (1/954)

The stimulus-induced biosynthesis of the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) in intact mouse J774 macrophages and the inactivation of 2-AG by the same cells or by rat circulating macrophages was studied. By using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, we found that ionomycin (5 microM) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 200 microg x mL-1) cause a 24-fold and 2.5-fold stimulation of 2-AG levels in J774 cells, respectively, thus providing unprecedented evidence that this cannabimimetic metabolite can be synthesized by macrophages. In J774 cells, LPS also induced a 7.8-fold increase of the levels of the other endocannabinoid, anandamide, and, in rat circulating macrophages, an almost twofold increase of 2-AG levels. Extracellular [3H]2-AG was cleared from the medium of intact J774 macrophages (t1/2 = 19-28 min) and esterified to phospholipids, diacylglycerols and triglycerides or hydrolyzed to [3H]arachidonic acid and glycerol. These catabolic processes were attenuated differentially by various enzyme inhibitors. Rat circulating macrophages were shown to contain enzymatic activities for the hydrolysis of 2-AG, including: (a) fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), the enzyme responsible for anandamide breakdown and previously shown to catalyse also 2-AG hydrolysis, and (b) a 2-AG hydrolase activity different from FAAH and down-regulated by LPS. High levels of FAAH mRNA were found in circulating macrophages but not platelets, which, however, contain a 2-AG hydrolase. Both platelets and macrophages were shown to express the mRNA for the CB1 cannabinoid receptor. A macrophage 2-AG hydrolase with apparent Km = 110 microM and Vmax = 7.9 nmol x min-1 x (mg protein)-1 was partially characterized in J774 cells and found to exhibit an optimal pH of 6-7 and little or no sensitivity to typical FAAH inhibitors. These findings demonstrate for the first time that macrophages participate in the homeostasis of the hypotensive and immunomodulatory endocannabinoid 2-AG through metabolic mechanisms that are subject to regulation.  (+info)

The endothelial component of cannabinoid-induced relaxation in rabbit mesenteric artery depends on gap junctional communication. (2/954)

1. We have shown that the endocannabinoid anandamide and its stable analogue methanandamide relax rings of rabbit superior mesenteric artery through endothelium-dependent and -independent mechanisms that are unaffected by blockade of NO synthase and cyclooxygenase. 2. The endothelium-dependent component of the responses was attenuated by the gap junction inhibitor 18alpha-glycyrrhetinic acid (18alpha-GA; 50 microM), and a synthetic connexin-mimetic peptide homologous to the extracellular Gap 27 sequence of connexin 43 (43Gap 27, SRPTEKTIFII; 300 microM). By contrast, the corresponding connexin 40 peptide (40Gap 27, SRPTEKNVFIV) was inactive. 3. The cannabinoid CB1 receptor antagonist SR141716A (10 microM) also attenuated endothelium-dependent relaxations but this inhibition was not observed with the CB1 receptor antagonist LY320135 (10 microM). Furthermore, SR141716A mimicked the effects of 43Gap 27 peptide in blocking Lucifer Yellow dye transfer between coupled COS-7 cells (a monkey fibroblast cell line), whereas LY320135 was without effect, thus suggesting that the action of SR141716A was directly attributable to effects on gap junctions. 4. The endothelium-dependent component of cannabinoid-induced relaxation was also attenuated by AM404 (10 microM), an inhibitor of the high-affinity anandamide transporter, which was without effect on dye transfer. 5. Taken together, the findings suggest that cannabinoids derived from arachidonic acid gain access to the endothelial cytosol via a transporter mechanism and subsequently stimulate relaxation by promoting diffusion of an to adjacent smooth muscle cells via gap junctions. 6. Relaxations of endothelium-denuded preparations to anandamide and methanandamide were unaffected by 43Gap 27 peptide, 18alpha-GA, SR141716A, AM404 and indomethacin and their genesis remains to be established.  (+info)

Comparison of novel cannabinoid partial agonists and SR141716A in the guinea-pig small intestine. (3/954)

The controversial nature of the CB(1) receptor antagonist, SR141716A, in the guinea-pig small intestine was investigated by comparing it with four analogues of Delta(8)-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta(8)-THC): O-1184, O-1238, O-584 and O-1315. These compounds (10 - 1000 nM) inhibited the electrically-evoked contractions with a rank order of potency of O-1238>O-1184>O-584>O-1315. Log concentration-response curves for O-1238, O-1184 and O-1315 were significantly shifted to the right by SR141716A and the maxima were significantly less than that of the CB(1) agonist, WIN55212-2, an indication of partial agonism. Partial saturation of the triple bond in O-1184 to a cis double bond (O-1238) increased its potency as an agonist (pEC(50) from 6.42 to 7.63) and as an antagonist of WIN55212-2, (pK(B), from 8.36 to 9.49). Substitution of the terminal azide group by an ethyl group (O-584) or removal of the phenolic hydroxyl group (O-1315) had no significant effect on the agonist or antagonist potency. None of these analogues increased the twitch response in a manner resembling that of SR141716A. O-1184 (10 and 100 nM) shifted the log concentration-response curve of WIN55212-2 for inhibition of the twitch responses to the right with pK(B) values of 8.29 and 8.38, respectively. We conclude that these Delta(8)-THC analogues behave as partial agonists rather than silent antagonists at CB(1) binding sites in this tissue. There was no evidence of antagonism of endocannabinoids thus supporting the hypothesis that, in this tissue, SR141716A is an inverse agonist of constitutively active CB(1) receptors.  (+info)

Reversal of dopamine D(2) receptor responses by an anandamide transport inhibitor. (4/954)

We characterized the pharmacological properties of the anandamide transport inhibitor N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-arachidonamide (AM404) in rats and investigated the effects of this drug on behavioral responses associated with activation of dopamine D(2) family receptors. Rat brain slices accumulated [(3)H]anandamide via a high-affinity transport mechanism that was blocked by AM404. When administered alone in vivo, AM404 caused a mild and slow-developing hypokinesia that was significant 60 min after intracerebroventricular injection of the drug and was reversed by the CB1 cannabinoid receptor antagonist SR141716A. AM404 produced no significant catalepsy or analgesia, two typical effects of direct-acting cannabinoid agonists. However, AM404 prevented the stereotypic yawning produced by systemic administration of a low dose of apomorphine, an effect that was dose-dependent and blocked by SR141716A. Furthermore, AM404 reduced the stimulation of motor behaviors elicited by the selective D(2) family receptor agonist quinpirole. Finally, AM404 reduced hyperactivity in juvenile spontaneously hypertensive rats, a putative model of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The results support a primary role of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of psychomotor activity and point to anandamide transport as a potential target for neuropsychiatric medicines.  (+info)

Endocannabinoid 2-arachidonyl glycerol is a full agonist through human type 2 cannabinoid receptor: antagonism by anandamide. (5/954)

The endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG) bind to G protein-coupled central and peripheral cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, respectively. Due to the relatively high expression of the CB2 isotype on peripheral immune cells, it has been hypothesized that this receptor mediates the immunosuppressive effects of cannabinoids. Unfortunately, there was a dearth of pharmacological studies with the endocannabinoids and human CB2 (hCB2). These studies compare and contrast the potency and efficacy of anandamide, 2-AG, and the synthetic cannabinoid HU210 at hCB2. Using [(35)S]guanosine-5'-O-(3-thio)triphosphate (GTPgammaS) and radioligand bindings in insect Sf9-hCB2 membranes, we showed that both endocannabinoids bound hCB2 with similar affinity and that the cannabinoids acted as full agonists in stimulating [(35)S]GTPgammaS exchange, although 2-AG was 3-fold more potent than anandamide (EC(50) = 38.9 +/- 3.1 and 121 +/- 29 nM, respectively). In a mammalian expression system (Chinese hamster ovary-hCB2 cells), HU210 and 2-AG maximally inhibited forskolin-stimulated cAMP synthesis (IC(50) = 1.61 +/- 0.42 nM and 1.30 +/- 0.37 microM, respectively) although anandamide was ineffective. In Chinese hamster ovary-hCB2 membranes, HU210 and 2-AG were also full agonists in stimulating [(35)S]GTPgammaS binding (EC(50) = 1.96 +/- 0.35 and 122 +/- 17 nM, respectively), but anandamide was a weak partial agonist (EC(50) = 261 +/- 91 nM; 34 +/- 4% of maximum). Due to its low intrinsic activity, coincubation with anandamide effectively attenuated the functional activity of 2-AG at hCB2. Collectively, the data showed that both endocannabinoids bound hCB2 with similar affinity, but only 2-AG functioned as a full agonist. Moreover, the agonistic activity of 2-AG was attenuated by anandamide.  (+info)

Are anandamide and cannabinoid receptors involved in ethanol tolerance? A review of the evidence. (6/954)

There have been significant developments towards the elucidation of molecular and cellular changes in neuronal second messenger pathways involved in the development of tolerance to and dependence on ethanol (EtOH). The long-term exposure to EtOH has been shown to affect several aspects of neuronal signal transduction as well as ligand-gated ion channels and receptor systems, including the receptors that are coupled to the superfamily of GTP binding regulatory proteins (G-proteins). The recent identification of a G-protein coupled receptor that was activated by delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the major psychoactive component of marijuana, led to the discovery of endogenous agonists. One such agonist found to exist in mammalian brain was characterized to be an arachidonic acid (AA) metabolite and was named anandamide (AnNH). AnNH has been shown to bind specifically to the cannabinoid receptor (CB(1)) and mimic many of the pharmacological and behavioural effects of THC including tolerance development. The role of endocannabinoids and the CB(1) receptor signal transduction system in tolerance development to drugs of abuse has not been explored until recently. The findings presented in this review provide evidence for the first time that some of the pharmacological actions of EtOH including tolerance development may be mediated through participation of the endocannabinoid-CB(1) receptor signal transduction system. Recent studies have shown that chronic EtOH exposure produces downregulation of CB(1) receptors and an inhibition of CB(1) receptor agonist-stimulated GTPgammaS binding in mouse brain synaptic plasma membranes (SPM). The observed receptor downregulation results from the persistent stimulation of the receptors by the endogenous CB(1) receptor agonist AnNH, the synthesis of which is increased by chronic EtOH exposure. Further, the CB(1) receptor antagonist SR-141716A has been shown to block voluntary EtOH intake in rats and mice. Based on these studies, a hypothesis is presented to explain the possible involvement of the endocannabinoid system in the pharmacological and behavioural effects of EtOH.  (+info)

Down-regulation of anandamide hydrolase in mouse uterus by sex hormones. (7/954)

Endocannabinoids are an emerging class of lipid mediators, which mimic several effects of cannabinoids. Anandamide (arachidonoylethanolamide) is a major endocannabinoid, which has been shown to impair pregnancy and embryo development. The activity of anandamide is controlled by cellular uptake through a specific transporter and intracellular degradation by the enzyme anandamide hydrolase (fatty acid amide hydrolase, FAAH). We characterized FAAH in mouse uterus by radiochromatographic and immunochemical techniques, showing that the enzyme is confined to the epithelium and its activity decreases appreciably during pregnancy or pseudopregnancy because of lower gene expression at the translational level. Ovariectomy prevented the decrease in FAAH, and both progesterone and estrogen further reduced its basal levels, suggesting hormonal control of the enzyme. Anandamide was shown to induce programmed cell death in mouse blastocysts, through a pathway independent of type-1 cannabinoid receptor. Blastocysts, however, have a specific anandamide transporter and FAAH, which scavenge this lipid. Taken together, these results provide evidence of an interplay between endocannabinoids and sex hormones in pregnancy. These findings may also be relevant for human fertility, as epithelial cells from healthy human uterus showed FAAH activity and expression, which in adenocarcinoma cells was increased fivefold.  (+info)

Age dependent accumulation of N-acyl-ethanolamine phospholipids in ischemic rat brain. A (31)P NMR and enzyme activity study. (8/954)

N-acyl-ethanolamine phospholipids (NAPE) can be formed as a stress response during neuronal injury, and they are precursors for N-acyl-ethanolamines (NAE), some of which are endocannabinoids. The levels of NAPE accumulated during post-decapitative ischemia (6 h at 37 degrees C) were studied in rat brains of various age (1, 6, 12, 19, 30, and approximately 70 days) by the use of (31)P NMR spectroscopy of lipid extracts. This ability to accumulate NAPE was compared with the activity of N-acyltransferase and of NAPE-hydrolyzing phospholipase D (NAPE-PLD) in brain microsomes. These two enzymes are involved in the formation and degradation of NAPE, respectively. The results showed that 1) the ability to accumulate NAPE during post-decapitative ischemia is especially high in the youngest rats and is markedly reduced in older brains [in 1-day-old rat brains NAPE accumulated to 1.5% of total phospholipids, while in 30-day-old rat brains NAPE accumulation could not be detected (detection limit 0.09%)] and 2) this age pattern of accumulation can be explained by a combination of the decreased activity of N-acyltransferase and the increased activity of NAPE-PLD during development. These results point out that it would be advantageous to investigate a potential cytoprotective role of NAPE in the brains of very young rats.  (+info)

The endocannabinoid system is a valuable target for drug discovery, because it is involved in the regulation of many cellular and physiological functions. The endocannabinoid system constitutes the endogenous lipids anandamide, 2-arachidonoylglycerol and noladin ether, and the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors as well as the proteins for their inactivation. It is thought that (endo)cannabinoid-based drugs may potentially be useful to reduce the effects of neurodegeneration. This paper reviews recent developments in the endocannabinoid system and its involvement in neuroprotection.. Exogenous (endo)cannabinoids have been shown to exert neuroprotection in a variety of in vitro and in vivo models of neuronal injury via different mechanisms, such as prevention of excitotoxicity by CB1-mediated inhibition of glutamatergic transmission, reduction of calcium influx, and subsequent inhibition of deleterious cascades, TNF-α formation, and anti-oxidant activity. It has been suggested that the release of ...
The present review synthetically describes the currently advanced hypotheses for a neurobiological basis of depression, ranging from the classical monoaminergic to the more recent neurotrophic hypothesis. Moreover, the Authors review the available preclinical and clinical evidence suggesting a possible role for the endocannabinoid system in the physiopathology of depression. Indeed, in spite of the reporting of conflicting results, the pharmacological enhancement of endocannabinoid activity at the CB1 cannabinoid receptor level appears to exert an antidepressant-like effect in some animal models of depression. On the contrary, a reduced activity of the endogenous cannabinoid system seems to be associated with the animal model of depression, namely the chronic mild stress model. Moreover, a few studies have reported an interaction of antidepressants with the endocannabinoid system. With regard to clinical studies, several authors have reported an alteration of endocannabinoid serum levels in ...

The central amygdala (CeA) has a major role in alcohol dependence and reinforcement, and behavioral and neurochemical evidence suggests a role for the endocannabinoid (eCB) system in ethanol binging and dependence. We used a slice preparation to investigate the physiological role of cannabinoids and their interaction with ethanol on inhibitory synaptic transmission in CeA. Superfusion of the cannabinoid receptor (CB1) agonist WIN55212-2 (WIN2) onto CeA neurons decreased evoked GABA(A) receptor-mediated inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs) in a concentration-dependent manner, an effect prevented by the CB1 antagonists Rimonabant (SR141716, SR1) and AM251. SR1 or AM251 applied alone augmented IPSPs, revealing a tonic eCB activity that decreased inhibitory transmission in CeA. Paired-pulse analysis suggested a presynaptic CB1 mechanism. Intracellular BAPTA abolished the ability of AM251 to augment IPSPs, demonstrating the eCB-driven nature and postsynaptic origin of the tonic CB1-dependent ...
Recent physiological, pharmacological and anatomical studies provide evidence that one of the main roles of the endocannabinoid system in the brain is the regulation of ¿-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate release. This article aims to review this evidence in the context of its implications for pain. We first provide a brief overview of supraspinal regulation of nociception, followed by a review of the evidence that the brains endocannabinoid system modulates nociception. We look in detail at regulation of supraspinal GABAergic and glutamatergic neurons by the endocannabinoid system and by exogenously administered cannabinoids. Finally, we review the evidence that cannabinoid-mediated modulation of pain involves modulation of GABAergic and glutamatergic neurotransmission in key brain regions ...

Our formula made from marjoram and 25% Full Spectrum CBD is the archenemy of insomnia.. What Is Marjoram ?. In Egypt, marjoram was well known by phytotherapists to manage insomnia issues. The first causes of insomnia in the world are stress and an imbalance of our nervous system. Marjoram has a direct effect on the rebalancing of our nervous system thanks to the action of two of its ingredients: terpinene and linalool molecules. Linalool directly acts on the synapsis of our cerebral cortex and is a widely known anti-anxiety component; whilst terpinene reduces pressure with a very effective vascular muscular relaxation. The association of both these molecules give marjoram anti-anxiety properties and virtues of muscular relaxation which are now fully recognized.. How Does CBD Treat Insomnia?

CBD is unique in that it (and often in combination with other cannabinoids) can positively interact with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). This neural network exists throughout your body and in every organ. The importance of the endocannabinoid system is clear when you consider it is responsible for the regulation of biological functions such as appetite, sleep, immune response, mood, and pain. These are mechanisms which when faulty, contribute to a wide range of health problems. Cannabinoids act by attaching to receptors in the ECS and modifying their activity. This interaction can reduce symptoms caused by the imbalance in the ECS such as inflammation, tremor, stress, lack of appetite and pain. CBD oil capsules will work differently depending on the person and should not be considered as a replacement for any prescribed medication, nor be taken with other medications without getting advice from a medical professional.. ...

2 - Benefits of CBD Oil.. a. CBD Oil can relieve any kind of pain. Not all of us know that our human body produces a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system. So its almost like, we already have the CBD compound within our body system. In this case, using CBD oil may help reduce chronic pain ( such as sclerosis and arthritis ) by impacting the endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation, and interacting with neurotransmitters. b. CBD oil may help with depression and anxiety. Even if the CBD compound does not attack your brain cells ( in the way a normal drug does ), it somehow works as an agonist. In this case, it triggers an opposite response when binding to a receptor. It somehow calms the chemicals in our brain down. But this also depends on how much of the CBD oil you use. A low dose can provoke a positive agonist response, while a high dose can overwhelm the brain and provoke a counter effect that fights with the CBD compound. c. CBD oil may reduce acne problems. ...

They have been proven to have positive effects on the endocannabinoid system, working specifically on our ECS, the bodys largest neurotransmitter network, which is always striving to keep our bodies in balance. ...
How is CBD absorbed by the Body? The CBD when enters the body binds with the endocannabinoid system in our body. This is how the...
Several human studies have discovered that a combination of CBD and THC is efficient in treating ache associated to a number of sclerosis and arthritis. Studies have proven that CBD could assist cut back chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, decreasing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters . This high quality makes CBD an appealing choice for those who are in search of relief from pain and different symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical medication. If you arent discovering reduction at 25 mg, progressively increase within the dose in 5 or 10 mg increments till you discover your sweet spot. You can also want to think about using CBD oil with THC as many patients report that the 2 compounds work for them better together than by themselves ...
CBD and pregnancy has been a growing trend, largely because endocannabinoid receptors are expressed by various cell types in the reproductive system. CBDs antioxidant properties help reduce oxidative stress caused by gestational processes. This can strengthen the mothers uterus and protect the unborn baby.
Ananda Bliss products harness the power of CBD to support the overall reproductive system, abundant with endocannabinoid receptors.
Offentliggørelse af Den Europæiske Revisionsrets beretning om effektiviteten af ECBs forvaltning i regnskabsåret 2004 og ECBs svar
In what can only be interpreted as a huge disappointment for the ECB and Draghi yielding to German demands, Bloomberg has leaked what likely will be the final plan of the ECB tomorrow, which contrary to previously rumors stating that the ECB will pursue yield caps, or even just buy bonds on an unsterilized basis, appears to be a huge dud: ECB BOND PLAN SAID TO REFRAIN FROM SETTING PUBLIC YIELD CAPS DRAGHIS BOND PLAN SAID TO PLEDGE UNLIMITED, STERILIZED BUYING ECB PLAN SAID TO FOCUS ON GOVT BONDS, MATURITIES UP TO 3 YEARS ECB SAID TO CONSIDER SELLING BONDS IF CONDITIONS NOT MET ECB PLAN SAID TO STRESS CONDITIONALITY OF ANY BOND PURCHASES ECB BOND PLAN SAID TO HAVE BROAD COUNCIL SUPPORT - but not unanimous, as Germany again objects The keyword above is highlighted: sterilized, which simply means for those who are unaware, such as all the algos taking the EURUSD higher, that the ECBs entire overhyped plan is nothing more than a continuation of the Securities Market Program, or the SMP, which has been
The ECB is the central bank which monitors the monetary policy of the Eurozone, with the main objective being to maintain price stability.
Trophoblast cells that comprise the placenta play a crucial role in the complex cross-talk between fetus and maternal tissues. Although anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol, the best studied endocannabinoids, affect trophoblast attachment and outgrowth, the functional significance of the endocannabinoid system in the development of placenta has not been established. We investigated the correlation between endocannabinoid levels and the pattern of expression of the receptors and metabolic enzymes of the endocannabinoid system during rat placental development. Here, we showed that all the endocannabinoid machinery is dynamically expressed in the functionally distinct basal and labyrinth zones of the rat placenta. Indeed, endocannabinoid levels are shown to increase with the progression of pregnancy. Together, these data support a role for the endocannabinoid system in normal placental function and evidence for a potential novel cellular target for the deleterious action of cannabis-derived ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Differences in peripheral endocannabinoid modulation of scratching behavior in facial vs. spinally-innervated skin. AU - Spradley, Jessica Marie. AU - Davoodi, Auva. AU - Gee, Leland Bruce. AU - Carstens, Mirela Iodi. AU - Carstens, Earl. PY - 2012/9. Y1 - 2012/9. N2 - Cannabinoids suppress nocifensive behaviors in rodents. We presently investigated peripheral endocannabinoid modulation of itch- and pain-related behaviors elicited from facial vs. spinally-innervated skin of rats. Intradermal (id) injection of the pruritogen serotonin (5-HT) elicited significantly more hindlimb scratch bouts, and longer cumulative time scratching, when injected in the rostral back compared to the cheek. Pretreatment of skin with inhibitors of degrading enzymes for the endocannabinoids anandamide (URB597) or 2-arachidonoylglycerol (JZL184) significantly reduced scratching elicited by 5-HT in the rostral back. These effects were prevented by co-treatment with antagonists of the CB1 (AM251) or CB2 ...
The endocannabinoid transporters (eCBTs) are transport proteins for the endocannabinoids. Most neurotransmitters are water-soluble and require transmembrane proteins to transport them across the cell membrane. The endocannabinoids (anandamide, AEA, and 2-arachidonoylglycerol, 2-AG) on the other hand, are non-charged lipids that readily cross lipid membranes.[1][2][3][4][5] However, since the endocannabinoids are water immiscible, protein transporters have been described that act as carriers to solubilize and transport the endocannabinoids through the aqueous cytoplasm. These include the heat shock proteins (Hsp70s) and fatty acid binding proteins for anandamide (FABPs).[6][7] FABPs such as FABP1, FABP3, FABP5, and FABP7 have been shown to bind endocannabinoids.[8][9] FABP inhibitors attenuate the breakdown of anandamide by the enzyme fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) in cell culture.[6] One of these inhibitors (SB-FI-26), isolated from a virtual library of a million compounds, belongs to a class ...
The nature of the endocannabinoids are functionally much like neurotransmitters, but structurally are eicosanoids in the family of signaling sphingolipids. These signaling cannabinoids keep track of metabolic systems all over the body. This information is shared with the nervous system and the immune system so that any imbalance is attended to. If the body is in chronic disease or emotional stress, the immune system can fall behind and lose control of compromised systems. It is here that phytocannabinoids can pitch in to support the stressed body in a return to health. The cannabis plant provides analogues of the bodys primary signaling cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is mimetic to anandamide, and cannabidiol (CBD) is mimetic to 2-AG, and has the same affinity to CB1 and CB2 receptors; providing the body with additional support for the immune and endocannabinoid systems ...
The ECS is made up of three components: cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids, and metabolic enzymes. These components are found throughout the body, including the brain, tissues, and organs.. The ECS is a signaling network that uses endocannabinoids to control processes in the body. Endocannabinoids (endo meaning within) are specialized compounds that are synthesized, or created, in the body as needed. When outside homeostasis, the body produces endocannabinoids to reclaim its balance. Endocannabinoids then send information to the cells that gives the cells a specific direction that will result in a return to homeostasis. Lets take a further look at how this process works.. When unbalanced, the body produces endocannabinoids to send a specific message to the cell. The two major endocannabinoids are anandamide and 2-AG. Endocannabinoids work as messengers to send information through the receptor and into the cell. To do so, they bind to and activate cannabinoid receptors.. Cannabinoid ...
Mounting in vitro and in vivo data suggest that the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, as well as some plant and synthetic cannabinoids, have neuroprotective effects following brain injury. Cannabinoid receptor agonists inhibit glutamatergic synaptic transmission and reduce the production of tumour necrosis factor-alpha and reactive oxygen intermediates, which are factors in causing neuronal damage. The formation of the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol is strongly enhanced after brain injury, and there is evidence that these compounds reduce the secondary damage incurred. Some plant and synthetic cannabinoids, which do not bind to the cannabinoid receptors, have also been shown to be neuroprotective, possibly through their direct effect on the excitatory glutamate system and/or as antioxidants.. ...
Human beings have been using cannabis for its medicinal and psychoactive properties for thousands of years, but theres always been a veil over information regarding how and why cannabis works so well with treating such a wide variety of medical conditions. For example, cannabis has been known for decades to be very helpful in the treatment of glaucoma due to its ability to lower the intraocular pressure of the eye, or in other words lower the fluid pressure to prevent optic nerve damage. But how does it work?. Endocannabinoids. Endogenous cannabinoids are a family of bioactive lipids that interact with and activate Endocannabinoid receptors via neural transmission. Naturally formed cannabinoids can be found sparsely in the brain and in other tissues throughout the body, and are tasked with homeopathic regulation of functions such as pain perception, memory, mood, and appetite. One event that triggers the natural production of cannabinoids in your body is Noxious Stimulus, a potentially or ...
The present findings provide evidence for a novel cardiovascular regulatory mechanism mediated by endocannabinoids acting at CB1, stimulation of which lowers blood pressure through reductions in both cardiac contractility and vascular resistance. In various forms of hypertension, this endocannabinoid system becomes tonically active, probably owing to an upregulation of cardiac and vascular endothelial CB1. Furthermore, increased activation of CB1 through blocking of the metabolic degradation or intracellular uptake of the endocannabinoid anandamide normalizes blood pressure, offering a novel approach for the pharmacotherapy of hypertension.. CB1 antagonists did not affect blood pressure in normotensive rats, and inhibitors of FAAH or anandamide transport were similarly ineffective, which indicates that the cannabinoid system is inactive under normotensive conditions. In contrast, CB1 antagonists elicited sustained further increases in blood pressure in rats with 3 different forms of ...
The endocannabinoid system is an important regulator of the nervous, neuroendocrine and immune systems, thus representing a novel therapeutic target for stress-related neuroinflammatory and psychiatric disorders. However, there is a paucity of data relating to the effects of endocannabinoids on neuroinflammatory mediators following an immune stress/challenge in vivo. This study investigated the effects of URB597, a selective inhibitor of fatty acid amine hydrolyase (FAAH), the enzyme that preferentially metabolises anandamide, on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced increases in the expression of immune mediators in the hypothalamus. Systemic administration of URB597 increased the levels of anandamide and the related N-acylethanolamines, N-palmitoyl ethanolamide and N-oleoyl ethanolamide, but not 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, in the hypothalamus and spleen. URB597 attenuated the LPS-induced increase in interleukin (IL)-1Beta expression while concurrently augmenting the LPS-induced increase in suppressor ...

During adolescence the endocannabinoid system in the brain undergoes a lot of change, and interfering with these changes by using cannabis could have consequences for the development of healthy brains in adults, says Dr Leonora Long of Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). Dr Leonora Long and colleagues studied how the endocannabinoid system changes over the course of a lifetime and found that most change occurs in the adolescent brain, a significant period of developmental change. Considering that cannabis use is common amongst teens and that adolescence is a time when adult behaviours and decision-making are being developed, our discovery that the adolescent brain may be more vulnerable to the effects of cannabis is significant, says Dr Long.. The endocannabinoid system is involved in appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory, and affects the way neurons in the brain communicate with each other. Cannabis causes problems by attaching to proteins in the endocannabinoid system and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Multiple mechanisms of endocannabinoid response initiation in hippocampus. AU - Edwards, David A.. AU - Kim, Jimok. AU - Alger, Bradley E.. PY - 2006/1. Y1 - 2006/1. N2 - Endocannabinoids (eCBs) act as retrograde messengers at inhibitory synapses of the hippocampal CA1 region. Current models place eCB synthesis in the postsynaptic pyramidal cell and the site of eCB action at cannabinoid receptors located on presynaptic interneuron terminals. Four responses at the CA1-interneuron synapse are attributed to eCBs: depolarization-induced suppression of inhibition (DSI), G-protein-coupled receptor-mediated enhancement of DSI (ΔDSI), persistent suppression of evoked inhibitory postsynaptic currents (eIPSCs), and finally, mGluR-dependent long-term depression (iLTD). It has been proposed that all are mediated by the eCB, 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, yet there is evidence that DSI does not arise from the same underlying biochemical processes as the other responses. In view of the increasing ...
Scientists found that, although phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids are chemically different, the way in which they interact with the ECS are very similar. And when a phytocannabinoid such as CBD is put back into the body, it helps to kickstart the ECS and restore a state of homeostasis and optimal physiological functioning.. Scientists are still in the early stages of ECS, CBD and endocannabinoid deficiency research. But, as more information is becoming available, an increasing number of people are turning to CBD as a viable and effective treatment option for a range of symptoms and conditions. Others use CBD as a preventative supplement that helps to keep them and their bodies happy and healthy ...
Depolarization-induced suppression of inhibition (DSI) is a prevailing form of endocannabinoid signalling. However, several discrepancies have arisen regarding the roles played by the two major brain endocannabinoids, 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) and anandamide, in mediating DSI. Here we studied endocannabinoid signalling in the prefrontal cortex (PFC), where several components of the endocannabinoid system have been identified, but endocannabinoid signalling remains largely unexplored. In voltage clamp recordings from mouse PFC pyramidal neurons, depolarizing steps significantly suppressed IPSCs induced by application of the cholinergic agonist carbachol. DSI in PFC neurons was abolished by extra- or intracellular application of tetrahydrolipstatin (THL), an inhibitor of the 2-AG synthesis enzyme diacylglycerol lipase (DAGL). Moreover, DSI was enhanced by inhibiting 2-AG degradation, but was unaffected by inhibiting anandamide degradation. THL, however, may affect other enzymes of lipid ...
Cannabis sativa is also popularly known as marijuana. It is being cultivated and used by man for recreational and medicinal purposes from many centuries.. Study of cannabinoids was at bay for very long time and its therapeutic value could not be adequately harnessed due to its legal status as proscribed drug in most of the countries.. The research of drugs acting on endocannabinoid system has seen many ups and down in recent past. Presently, it is known that endocannabinoids has role in pathology of many disorders and they also serve protective role in many medical conditions.. Several diseases like emesis, pain, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, anorexia, epilepsy, glaucoma, schizophrenia, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, obesity, metabolic syndrome related diseases, Parkinsons disease, Huntingtons disease, Alzheimers disease and Tourettes syndrome could possibly be treated by drugs modulating endocannabinoid system.. Presently, cannabinoid receptor agonists like nabilone and dronabinol ...
Researchers at the University of Chicago have described how part of the nervous system changes in adults affected by obesity, and what role this plays in appetite, eating behaviours and even sleep cycles.. The endocannabinoid system is a part of the nervous system that helps to regulate many processes in the body including appetite, pain and the immune system. In a 2016 study, Dr Erin Hanlon, a research assistant professor in the section of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism at the University of Chicago, showed that a chemical signal in the endocannabinoid system known as 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) follows a cycle where its levels in the blood are low overnight, and then rise during the day to peak in the mid-afternoon.. The endocannabinoid system is involved in hedonic eating, or eating for reward purposes, said Hanlon. Interestingly, these peaks also coincided with increased appetite. People are starting to examine the idea that its not only what you eat, but when you eat, and ...
Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, chemical compounds that activate the same brain receptors as does the THC in Cannabis. These receptors are involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. In a healthy person everything works fine and the endocannabinoid production is enough to keep us healthy.. If you are sick, have been injured, or live in a polluted area chances are your endocannabinoid system cannot keep up with the demands put upon it. We can help ourselves by supplementing our bodies with cannabinoids from another source; cannabinoids from cannabis. RSO is a very concentrated form of cannabinoids.. ...
It is therefore acknowledged that solely sure assays (e.g. the plantar test) are prone to be sensitive to detection of CB2-mediated antinociceptive results in the absence of irritation or harm (for evaluate see ). Thus, animal fashions of persistent pain are prone to be differentially delicate to CB2-mediated parts of cannabinoid antinociception.. This shall be achieved by reviewing research examining mobilization of endocannabinoids underneath physiological circumstances or through the use of pharmacological instruments that inhibit their uptake or degradation. This evaluate What is a CBD oil tincture? will also contemplate studies employing exogenous administration of synthetic endocannabinoids together with other pharmacological approaches geared toward regulating their uptake or degradation.. These afferent nerve fibers transmit details about sensory stimulation to the spinal wire, thereby enabling communication between the periphery and particular areas of the CNS that contribute to ache ...
Depolarization-induced suppression of excitation (DSE) is a major form of cannabinoid-mediated short-term retrograde neuronal plasticity and is found in numerous brain regions. Autaptically cultured murine hippocampal neurons are an architecturally simple model for the study of cannabinoid signaling, including DSE. The transient nature of DSE - tens of seconds - is likely determined by the regulated hydrolysis of the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG). No less than five candidate enzymes have been considered to serve this role: fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), monoacyl glycerol lipase (MGL), α/β-hydrolase domain 6 and 12 (ABHD6 and ABHD12). We previously found that FAAH and COX-2 do not have a role in determining the duration of autaptic DSE. We found that two structurally distinct inhibitors of MGL (NAM (N-arachidonoyl maleimide) and JZL184) prolong DSE in autaptic hippocampal neurons, while inhibition of ABHD6 by WWL70 had no effect. In addition, we ...
To know how CBD affects the immune system, its essential first to understand the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is the bodily system that produces and regulates cannabinoids in the brain, both naturally-occurring and additive.. When you take a CBD supplement, its processed by this area of the brain. The principal receptors responsible for triggering these responses are called CB1 and CB2 receptors, and CBD acts indirectly on these receptors. These receptors can induce physiological change and produce therapeutic effects, which is how CBD has come to be known as a potential therapeutic compound.. Medical professionals are still discovering both the endocannabinoid and the immune system, and theres a lot we dont know. However, some studies have been done on CBDs effects on various autoimmune diseases. According to a study done by the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, cannabinoid receptors play a significant role in the immune systems regulation ...
Endocannabinoid and the system behind it are what we talk about in todays article. The therapeutic effects that Cannabidiol based products can have due to their interaction with the system is an often asked question.
The limited effectiveness of current therapies against Alzheimers disease (AD) highlights the need for intensifying research efforts devoted to developing new agents for preventing or retarding the disease process. During the last few years, targeting the endogenous cannabinoid system has emerged as a potential therapeutic approach to treat Alzheimer. The endocannabinoid system is composed by a number of cannabinoid receptors, including the well-characterized CB1 and CB2 receptors, with their endogenous ligands and the enzymes related to the synthesis and degradation of these endocannabinoid compounds. ...
The human body produces chemicals under certain conditions that help control pain and other physiologic processes. Two primary examples involve the production of the endogenous opioids and the endogenous cannabinoids. Throughout history, exogenous natural (plant-based), semisynthetic, and synthetic chemicals have been administered to mimic the effects of the endogenous opioid and endocannabinoid systems. The purpose of this presentation is to address how the opioid and endocannabinoid systems work within the body, and how opioid and cannabinoid drugs can affect their respective systems. Attention will be focused on how these medications affect pain pathways, and how they also influence areas of the brain associated with reward, pleasure, and the potential for addiction. This session will encourage discussion about how these drugs can impact physical therapist practice, and how clinicians can educate and inform their patients and clients about the positive and negative effects of these drugs.
A major breakthrough in marijuana-cannabinoid research has been the discovery of a previously unknown but elaborate endogenous endocannabinoid system (ECS) composed of endocannabinoids and the enzymes for their biosynthesis and degradation with genes encoding two distinct cannabinoid (CB1 and CB2) receptors (CBRs) that are activated by endocannabinoids, cannabinoids and marijuana use. Physical and genetic localization of the cannabinoid receptor CNR1 and CNR2 genes have been mapped to human chromosome 6 and 1 respectively. A number of variations in CBR genes have been associated with human disorders including osteoporosis, ADHD, PTSD, drug dependency, obesity and depression. The ubiquitous abundance and differential distribution of the ECS in the human body and brain along with the coupling to many signal transduction pathways may explain the effects in most biological system and the myriad behavioral effects associated with smoking marijuana. The remarkable progress in understanding the ...

We addressed the in vivo significance of the above findings in adult mice (4.5 to 6 months of age) lacking endocannabinoid-mediated retrograde signaling at cortical inhibitory synapses (23) because of conditional CB1R deletion in GABAergic neurons by Cre-mediated recombination redirected by intergenic regulatory sequences of the genes Dlx5 and Dlx6 (CB1Rf/f; Dlx5/6-Cre mice) (24). We identified perisomatic GABAergic terminals that would otherwise have expressed CB1Rs in the neocortex and hippocampus of CB1Rf/f; Dlx5/6-Cre mice by their coexpression of the vesicular GABA (VGAT) and vesicular glutamate 3 (VGLUT3) transporters (25, 26) (Fig. 4C and fig. S6). Analysis of the distribution of VGAT+/VGLUT3+ boutons in layer 2/3 of the neocortex revealed a significant increase in the probability of pyramidal cells receiving VGAT+/VGLUT3+ inputs (Fig. 4, D to E′), indicating impaired postsynaptic target selection of cortical interneurons lacking CB1R-mediated endocannabinoid signals. These changes ...
This is the first study showing that mAChR activation enhances the release of endocannabinoids. The enhancement appeared in two forms. Low levels of mAChR activation increased the transient release of endocannabinoids that we record as DSI. At higher levels, mAChR activation directly induced the release of endocannabinoids that suppress baseline eIPSCs outside of the DSI period. Endocannabinoid release induced by high concentrations of CCh persisted for as long as the agonist was applied. The enhancement of DSI was fully blocked by an antagonist of CB1R and was absent in CB1R−/− mice, and we conclude that at low concentrations (≤0.5 μm), CCh only affected eIPSCs by enhancing the transient release process. The persistent effect was prominent when CCh levels were ≥1 μm. This was also blocked by CB1R antagonist and absent in CB1R−/− mice but was contaminated by a CB1R-independent effect when CCh concentrations were ,5 μm. Although, in principle, enhancement of transient ...
If you plan to use cannabis to treat a serious medical condition, you will need to work closely with your health care provider to determine whats best for you, particularly when it comes to dosing. That said, here are some of the most popular ways to use medical cannabis:. Smoke a pipe or joint. When you smoke cannabis the compounds are absorbed by your lungs, into your bloodstream, and across your blood-brain barrier. You get the most immediate effect from smoking, so this method is best for treating symptoms that need to be resolved quickly, such as nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy. The downside to smoking cannabis is that the effects can wear off quickly, so you may end up needing to smoke quite often. And, dont forget, smoking is harmful to lung tissue. Use a vape pen. Vape pens offer a healthier alternative to smoking because they heat cannabis without burning it. You inhale the vapor of the cannabis oil (or flower) without inhaling any smoke. The effects from cannabis vapor are as ...

El dolor crónico es un problema clínico grave con una enorme carga económica y social. Actualmente, el tratamiento del dolor crónico presenta eficacia limitada y efectos adversos significativos. Una de las razones de esta necesidad clínica insatisfecha es el escaso conocimiento de los mecanismos exactos que están involucrados en la generación y mantenimiento del dolor crónico y las comorbilidades relacionadas con el dolor, como son los trastornos afectivos y cognitivos. Estos tienen un impacto negativo sobre la calidad de vida de los pacientes y pueden agravar ulteriormente la percepción del dolor. Por ello, tratar no solamente los síntomas nociceptivos sino también las cormorbilidades que acompañan el dolor crónico representa un reto importante. En la presente Tesis, hemos validado diferentes modelos conductuales para evaluar las alteraciones nociceptivas, afectivas y cognitivas inducidas por el dolor crónico en ratones. Nuestro trabajo se centra principalmente en un tipo concreto ...

Classically, endogenous fatty acid ethanolamidesand their derivatives that bind to the cannabinoid receptors and trigger a signalling pathway are referred to as endocannabinoids
Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found within the human body. Theyve been there for 600,000 years or more, but weve only just noticed it! One of the remarkable things about endocannabinoids is their striking similarity to the active ingredients of cannabis called phyto-cannabinoids. In fact, it was the effort by scientists to understand the exact…
It is thought that the endocannabinoid system plays a role in neurological development, but can also be modulated by outside cannabinoids. Another line of thinking is that autism spectrum disorders may be related to disrupted pathways that have been affected by the endocannabinoid pathway

The PAG, via connections with the RVM (Fields and Heinricher, 1985), contributes to the control of pain transmission in the spinal cord dorsal horn (Fields et al., 1983). Endocannabinoids are involved in this process, through activation of the CB1 receptor, and descending modulation of nociceptive neuronal firing at the spinal level (Meng et al., 1998; Palazzo et al., 2001; Finn et al., 2003; Meng and Johansen, 2004; Maione et al., 2006). In this study the hypothesis that endocannabinoid mechanisms in the vlPAG can also contribute to the descending modulation of dural trigeminovascular nociceptive traffic was tested in anesthetized rats. The potent and highly specific CB1 receptor agonist, ACPA, and the less specific CB agonist, WIN55,212, locally applied to the vlPAG, attenuated the dural-evoked Aδ-fiber neuronal activation in the TCC, at a similar level of response (∼20%) found previously with naratriptan (Bartsch et al., 2004). Further, the effects of WIN55,212 were reversed by a specific ...
Clinical endocannabinoid deficiency or CECD is a disorder associated with multiple diseases and conditions. Come in and well explain!
Researchers have discovered endocannabinoid receptors in almost all the parts of the pain pathway and in different parts of the peripheral and central nervous system. Other cannabinoid receptors play their role in the reduction and regulation of inflammatory pain in the body.
For quite some time, CBD isolate was thought to be better because of its high level of purity (up to 99-plus percent). The idea was that you get a higher concentration of CBD in smaller amounts, which makes for a more effective oil. Then in 1998, Israeli researchers discovered something called the entourage effect, a concept referring to the way in which different plant compounds such as cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids work together in such a way that their combined effect is larger than that of each individual compound.. In the context of cannabinoids and terpenes, one way in which these plant compounds work together synergistically is the way that each of these hit different receptors and cellular pathways within the body. Say, for instance, that you are suffering from inflammation, the cannabinoids will interact with the endocannabinoid system as well as various CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body; the terpenes will have a different set of targets.. Scientists also found that ...
