Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Cannabinoid research in the last two decades became one of the most important fields in medical science, mainly because of the discovery of the endocannabinoid system and the understanding of the close connections between this system and several important diseases and pathological states. The endocannabinoid system has been shown to be present and active in many tissues and organs including the central nervous, gastrointestinal and reproductive systems, liver, lungs and bones. Its role in eye function, malignant diseases, pain and inflammation has also been studied. This review gives a summary of all these results with special attention to the role of the endocannabinoid system in energy metabolism and cardiovascular regulation.
