Considerable interplay exists between the brain's opioid and cannabinoid systems. These systems are both involved in the control of appetite and research supports the notion that the opioid system modulates the role of the cannabinoid system on appetite. However, the ability of the cannabinoid system to modulate the opioid system's control over appetite has not been well studied. The present study examined the role of cannabinoid CB1 receptors in the control of opioid-induced feeding, and… CONTINUE READING
