Abstract Background: Because delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, binds to cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors, levels of CB1 protein could serve as a potential biomarker for response to THC. To date, available techniques to characterize CB1 expression and function in vivo are limited. In this study, we developed an assay to quantify CB1 in lymphocytes to determine how it relates to cannabis use in 58 daily cannabis users compared with 47 nonusers… Expand
A novel bioassay for quantification of surface Cannabinoid receptor 1 expression
TLDR
A sensitive bioassay to quantify receptor surface expression is described, which shows that the GLuc signals corelate with CB1 localization, and its functionality and reliability is shown by comparing its results with those generated by previously reported mutations on the CNR1 gene and by using flow cytometry to determine the cell surface receptor expression.

Influence of Cannabinoid Receptor 1 Genetic Variants on the Subjective Effects of Smoked Cannabis
TLDR
This pilot study investigated specific genetic variations within the cannabinoid receptor 1 (CNR1) gene for association with the subjective effects of smoked cannabis to suggest that rs1049353 and rs2023239 minor allele carriers experience augmented subjective effects during acute cannabis intoxication. Expand
Disease‐associated polymorphisms within the conserved ECR1 enhancer differentially regulate the tissue‐specific activity of the cannabinoid‐1 receptor gene promoter; implications for cannabinoid pharmacogenetics
TLDR
The cell‐specific approaches used in this study represent an important step in gaining a mechanistic understanding of the roles of noncoding polymorphic variation in disease and in the increasingly important field of cannabinoid pharmacogenetics. Expand
Genetic and epigenetic influences modulating the tissue specific regulation of the cannabinoid receptor -1 gene (CB1); implications for cannabinoid pharmacogenetics
TLDR
The cell-specific approaches used in the study to determine the functional effects of genetic and epigenetic changes on the activity of tissue-specific regulatory elements at the CNR1 locus represent an important step in gaining a mechanistic understanding of cannabinoid pharmacogenetics. Expand
The CB1R rs2023239 receptor gene variant significantly affects the reinforcing effects of nicotine, but not cue reactivity, in human smokers
The cannabinoid CB1 receptor (CB1R) has been shown in preclinical studies to be involved in nicotine reinforcement and relapse‐like behavior. The common single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2023239Expand
Association of a Variant of CNR1 Gene Encoding Cannabinoid Receptor 1 With Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that C allele of rs2023239 polymorphism of the CNR1 gene is a risk factor of GTS in Polish population, which is suspected to be one of the causes of G TS. Expand
Genetic Aspects of Cannabis Use Disorder
TLDR
The genetics of cannabis use and CUD is in its infancy, and it may be time to reflect on current methods and revise models to integrate other approaches to phenotyping, leading to more precise gene candidate identification and an understanding of their role in the pathophysiology of CUD. Expand
High genes: Genetic underpinnings of cannabis use phenotypes
TLDR
Delineating genetic risk factors in the various stages of cannabis use will provide insight into the biological mechanisms related to cannabis use, and highlight points of intervention prior to and following the development of dependence, as well as identify targets to aid drug development for treating problematic cannabis use. Expand
Disruption of an enhancer associated with addictive behaviour within the cannabinoid receptor-1 gene suggests a possible role in alcohol intake, cannabinoid response and anxiety-related behaviour
TLDR
A highly conserved enhancer in the CB1 gene that contains a SNP associated with substance abuse in humans was identified and deletion reduced alcohol intake, cannabinoid response and altered anxiety-like behaviour. Expand
Regulation of Innate Lymphoid Cells in Acute Kidney Injury: Crosstalk between Cannabidiol and GILZ
TLDR
Results indicate that both cannabidiol and GILZ regulate ILC frequency and phenotype, in acute kidney injury, and that the effects of cannabodiol likely relate to modulation of endogenous GILz. Expand

CB1 and CB2 Receptor Expression and Promoter Methylation in Patients with Cannabis Dependence
TLDR
Using a mixed general linear model, it was demonstrated that the CB1 mRNA expression (as the dependent variable) was associated with the satisfaction with life scale (SWLS) and the WHO-Assist Subscale for Cannabis consumption. Expand

Marijuana produces a number of characteristic behaviors in humans and animals, including memory impairment, antinociception, and locomotor and psychoactive effects. However, tolerance and dependenceExpand
Evaluation of the specificity of antibodies raised against cannabinoid receptor type 2 in the mouse retina
TLDR
It is concluded that many commonly used antibodies raised against CB2R are not specific for use in immunohistochemistry, at least in the context of the mouse retina, and caution should be used when interpreting prior and future studies usingCB2R antibodies. Expand

TLDR
A model of cannabinoid signalling is presented in which anandamide is synthesized by postsynaptic cells and acts as a retrograde messenger molecule to modulate neurotransmitter release from presynaptic terminals, concluding that the cannabinoid signalling system may be quite restricted in its phylogenetic distribution. Expand
Human cannabinoid receptor 1: 5′ exons, candidate regulatory regions, polymorphisms, haplotypes and association with polysubstance abuse
TLDR
Improved definition of the human CB1/Cnr1 locus and its variants is reported, finding that post-mortem brain samples of heterozygous individuals contain less mRNA transcribed from the TAG alleles than from other CB1 or Cnr1 haplotypes, andCB1/ Cnr 1 genomic variation thus appears to play roles in human addiction vulnerability. Expand
Role of lipids and lipid signaling in the development of cannabinoid tolerance.
TLDR
Cannabinoid agonists such as Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) produce a wide range of pharmacological effects both in the central nervous system and in the periphery, while cannabinoid tolerance has been studied quite extensively to establish its relevance to the health consequences of marijuana use.

Individual and Additive Effects of the CNR1 and FAAH Genes on Brain Response to Marijuana Cues
TLDR
DNA samples and fMRI data collected using a cue-elicited craving paradigm suggest that the underlying mechanism of these genetic effects may be enhanced neural response in reward areas of the brain in carriers of the CNR1 G allele and FAAH C/C genotype in response to marijuana cues. Expand
Expression of cannabinoid receptors and their gene transcripts in human blood cells
TLDR
The existence of human cannabinoid receptors and genes along with the discovery of endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) may be useful markers in elucidating the role(s) and mechanism of action of cannabinoids. Expand
Reduced cannabinoid CB1 receptor binding in alcohol dependence measured with positron emission tomography
TLDR
The correlation of reduced binding with years of alcohol abuse suggests an involvement of CB1 receptors in alcohol dependence in humans, and C allele carriers at rs2023239 had higher CB1 receptor binding compared with non-carriers. Expand
Expression of central and peripheral cannabinoid receptors in human immune tissues and leukocyte subpopulations.
TLDR
The results suggest that CB1 and CB2 can be considered as tissue-selective antigens of the central nervous system and immune system, respectively, and cannabinoids may exert specific receptor-mediated actions on the immune system through the CB2 receptor. Expand
