The endocannabinoid system is composed of a family of locally produced endogenous cannabimimetic phospholipid derivatives, the cannabinoid receptors and enzymes for endocannabinoid biosynthesis and degradation. Two subtypes of cannabinoid receptor, CB1 and CB2, have been cloned, and their activation is coupled to inhibition of adenylate cyclase or alterations in Ca2+ levels. The well-known appetite-inducing effects of cannabis are mediated by activation of cannabinoid receptors and the endocannabinoids anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) are abundantly present in key brain areas participating
