The CB1 receptor belongs to the seven-transmembrane domain family of G-protein-coupled receptors and is involved in the arachidonic acid cascade in the brain. Few reports have attempted to clarify the functional role of endogenous cannabinoid and the arachidonic acid cascade through the CB1 receptor using a behavioral paradigm… CONTINUE READING
