  • Recent interest in cannabinoid receptors as therapeutic targets has spurred the investigation into the physiochemical responses to their activation. The cannabinoid pathways in mammalian systems of adult male CD1 mice were investigated using a combinatorial approach based on folic acid mediated response. Various tests of cannabimimetic activity of folic acid showed that the combination of folic acid with either AEA (N-arachidonoylethanolamine, ananamide) or THC (∆ 9 tetrahydrocannabinol… CONTINUE READING
