Intrathecal administration of anandamide, delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and (-)-3-[2-hydroxy-4-(1,1-dimethyheptyl)ptyl)phenyl]-4-(3-hydr oxypropyl)-cicloexan-1-ol (CP55,940) induced spinal antinociception accompanied by differential kappa-opioid receptor involvement and dynorphin A peptide release. Antinociception using the tail-flick test was induced(More)
Previous research in this laboratory concerning delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol-induced spinal antinociception indicated the critical role of dynorphin A-(1-17) in spinal antinociception following acute intrathecal (i.t.) administration. In the present study, tolerance development to delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol-induced spinal antinociception attenuated(More)
Intrathecal administration of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 9-THC) but not the cannabinoid agonist CP55,940 enhances the antinociception produced by morphine. In addition, CP55,940- and delta 9-THC-induced antinociception is blocked by the kappa opioid antagonist norbinaltorphimine, and both cannabinoids are cross-tolerant to kappa agonists but do not(More)
