Research on the Endocannabinoid System


Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research is seeking high quality translational and basic research on the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is now known to be a major modulator of synaptic activity throughout the brain. This special article collection will provide a broad overview of the current state of research and treatment in this area.

The Journal will accept original research, reviews, technical reports, or rapid communication articles. Potential topics include:

  • Structural and functional studies on CB1 and CB2 receptors
  • Signal transduction mechanism engaged by CB1 and CB2
  • Allosteric regulation of cannabinoid receptor function
  • Non CB1/CB2 receptors activated by endocannabinoid compounds
  • Mechanisms of endocannabinoid formation and deactivation
  • Neural control of endocannabinoid formation
  • Pharmacological agents targeting the endocannabinoid system 
  • Role of the endocannabinoid system in neural development 

Contributions will receive prompt and thorough peer review and will be published in the Journal after acceptance. Please refer to our Instructions for Authors before submitting your manuscript for consideration.
