CB(1) cannabinoid receptors mediate profound hypothermia when cannabinoid agonists are administered to rats. Glutamate, the principal excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS), is thought to tonically increase body temperature by activating N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Because NMDA antagonists block cannabinoid-induced antinociception and catalepsy, intimate glutamatergic-cannabinoid interactions may exist in the CNS. The present study investigated the effect of… CONTINUE READING
