The Effect of Long-Term Administration of Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase Inhibitor URB597 on Oxidative Metabolism in the Heart of Rats with Primary and Secondary Hypertension
TLDR
Results suggest that examined lipid mediators are involved in peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR)-independent and PPAR-dependent modulation of cardiac inflammatory reactions.
The effects of chronic FAAH inhibition on myocardial lipid metabolism in normotensive and DOCA‐salt hypertensive rats
The Endocannabinoid System Affects Myocardial Glucose Metabolism in the DOCA-Salt Model of Hypertension
TLDR
Evaluated effects of the ECS activation after chronic fatty acid amide hydrolase inhibitor (URB597) administration on plasma glucose and insulin concentrations as well as parameters of myocardial glucose metabolism in the deoxycorticosterone acetate-salt hypertensive rats, an animal model of secondary hypertension showed potential protective properties.
Effects of hypertension and FAAH inhibitor treatment of rats with primary and secondary hypertension considering the physicochemical properties of erythrocytes
TLDR
Considering the changes in physicochemical parameters of erythrocyte membranes, URB597 can be considered a potential protective factor for ery Throthrocytes in situations of metabolic changes associated with oxidative stress.
Effects of Fatty Acid Amide Hydroxylase Inhibitor URB597 on the Catecholaminergic Activity of the Adrenal Medulla in Stressed Male and Female Rats
TLDR
The results support the role of endocannabinoids as an antistress mechanism that inhibits elevated adrenomedullary activation and promotes its recovery to baseline in both male and female stressed rats.

A human fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) functional gene variant is associated with lower blood pressure in young males.
TLDR
An FAAH defective gene variant results in lower BP in YMs, similar to the findings in young rodents, and this effect is lost in older male obese hypertensive patients, in whom the EC system (ECS) is overactive.
Endocannabinoid Regulates Blood Pressure via Activation of the Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid Type 1 in Wistar Rats Fed a High-Salt Diet
TLDR
Results show that HS intake increases production of anandamide, which may serve as an endovanilloid to activate TRPV1, leading to release of CGRP to blunt salt-induced increases in blood pressure.
Role of anandamide transporter in regulating calcitonin gene-related peptide production and blood pressure in hypertension
TLDR
Investigation of the role of anandamide (AEA) transporter in regulating calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) production and blood pressure found decreased plasma CGRP level in patients with essential hypertension or SHRs is likely due to the reduced AEA transporter activity.
Fatty acid amide hydrolase is a key regulator of endocannabinoid-induced myocardial tissue injury.
The fatty acid amide hydrolase inhibitor URB597 exerts anti-inflammatory effects in hippocampus of aged rats and restores an age-related deficit in long-term potentiation
TLDR
Investigating the possibility that inhibiting the degradation of endocannabinoids with the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor, URB597, could ameliorate age-related increases in microglial activation and the associated decrease in LTP suggests that enhancement of levels of endOCannabinoids in the brain by URB599 has beneficial effects on synaptic function.
Endocannabinoids Acting at Cannabinoid-1 Receptors Regulate Cardiovascular Function in Hypertension
TLDR
It is concluded that endocannabinoids tonically suppress cardiac contractility in hypertension and that enhancing the CB1-mediated cardiodepressor and vasodilator effects of endogenous anandamide by blocking its hydrolysis can normalize blood pressure.
Alterations in the Medullary Endocannabinoid System Contribute to Age-related Impairment of Baroreflex Sensitivity
TLDR
It is reported in older SD rats that dorsal medullary 2-AG levels are 2-fold higher at 70 versus 15 weeks of age, providing evidence for alterations in the endocannabinoid system within the NTS of olderSD rats that contribute to age-related impairment of BRS.
Acute and chronic systemic CB1 cannabinoid receptor blockade improves blood pressure regulation and metabolic profile in hypertensive (mRen2)27 rats
TLDR
The beneficial actions of CB1 receptor blockade in (mRen2)27 rats support the interpretation that an upregulated endocannabinoid system contributes to hypertension and impaired autonomic function in this angiotensin II‐dependent model.
