Abnormal-Δ8-tetrahydrocannabidiol (ABN-Δ8-THC) failed to elicit central nervous system and cardiovascular effects in laboratory animals. Abnormal-cannabidiol (ABN-CBD) was also devoid of overt behavioral effects but produced marked hypotension with only slight bradycardia in anesthesized dogs. 
The novel endocannabinoid receptor GPR55 is activated by atypical cannabinoids but does not mediate their vasodilator effects
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to test the hypothesis that human recombinant GPR55 is activated by atypical cannabinoids and mediates vasodilator responses to these agents.
Blood pressure regulation by endocannabinoids and their receptors
Cardiovascular pharmacology of cannabinoids.
TLDR
Current information on the cardiovascular effects of cannabinoids is summarized and the importance of these effects in a variety of pathophysiological conditions is highlighted.
Endocannabinoid system in cardiovascular disorders - new pharmacotherapeutic opportunities
TLDR
The evidence so far gathered shows that the modulation of ECS (as agonism or antagonism of its receptors) is an enormous potential field for research and intervention in multiple areas of human pathophysiology.
Anandamide-Mediated CB1/CB2 Cannabinoid Receptor-Independent Nitric Oxide Production in Rabbit Aortic Endothelial Cells
TLDR
Results from this study suggest that in RAEC, (R)-methanandamide acts on a novel non- CB1 and non-CB2 anandamide receptor and signals through Gi and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, leading to Akt activation, eNOS phosphorylation, and NO production.
Evidence for novel cannabinoid receptors.
Anandamide-Mediated CB 1 / CB 2 Cannabinoid Receptor-Independent Nitric Oxide Production in Rabbit Aortic Endothelial Cells
TLDR
Results from this study suggest that in RAEC, (R)methanandamide acts on a novel non- CB1 and non-CB2 anandamide receptor and signals through Gi and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, leading to Akt activation, eNOS phosphorylation, and NO production.
Lovinger Evidence for novel cannabinoid receptors
TLDR
The case for these additional receptors implicated in the endothelium-dependent vasodilator effect of certain cannabinoids and in the presynaptic inhibition of glutamatergic neurotransmission in the hippocampus are being reviewed here.
The Effects of Cannabidiol, a Non-Intoxicating Compound of Cannabis, on the Cardiovascular System in Health and Disease
TLDR
Although CBD has been found to exhibit vasodilatory and antioxidant properties in hypertension, it has not affected blood pressure in hypertensive animals, and further clinical research is needed to recommend the use of CBD in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Pharmacology of some Marijuana Constituents and Two Heterocyclic Analogues
TLDR
Some preliminary pharmacological results with pure synthetic Δ8 and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) are reported, and the effect of the insertion of a heterocyclic atom in ring C on the pharmacology of these agents are described.
Role of the central autonomic nervous system in the hypotension and bradycardia induced by (‐)‐Δ9‐trans‐tetrahydrocannabinol
TLDR
The current data are in agreement with the proposal that Δ9‐THC produces cardiovascular alterations by an action on the central nervous system which results in a decrease in sympathetic tone.
