The purpose of this study was to characterize the acute effects of buprenorphine, an opioid partial (μ‐agonist, across a wide range of doses in comparison to methadone.
Oral Cannabidiol does not Alter the Subjective, Reinforcing or Cardiovascular Effects of Smoked Cannabis
It is suggested that oral CBD does not reduce the reinforcing, physiological, or positive subjective effects of smoked cannabis, as well as the effect of oral THC on smoked cannabis administration.

There is a ceiling on the effects of buprenorphine in humans that may reduce its abuse liability and increase its safety, and indicate that opioid blockade occurs after acute administration of bu p.o.m. or methadone.
Methadone safety: a clinical practice guideline from the American Pain Society and College on Problems of Drug Dependence, in collaboration with the Heart Rhythm Society.

The data suggest that these kappa-agonists may be safely administered in the presence of cocaine but do not produce significant attenuation of cocaine's direct effects or self-administration under these acute dosing conditions.
Gabapentin misuse, abuse and diversion: a systematic review.
Empirical and case report evidence suggests that the anti-epileptic and analgesic medication gabapentin is being misused internationally, with substance abuse populations at special risk for misuse/abuse.
Enadoline, a selective kappa opioid agonist: comparison with butorphanol and hydromorphone in humans
The pharmacodynamic effects of enadoline significantly increased measures of sedation, confusion and dizziness, produced visual distortions and feelings of depersonalization, and increased urinary output, and the highest dose was not tolerated and led to psychotomimetic effects.
