This study examined the immunoregulatory effects of anadamide, the recently identified first endogenous cannabinoid receptor ligand. Anadamide caused dose-dependent inhibition of mitogen-induced T and B lymphocyte proliferation. Its potency was 3- and 10-fold less than that of the synthetic cannabinoids delta 8-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta 8-THC) and CP55940… CONTINUE READING
