Researchers from the French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and elsewhere have uncovered CB1 receptor-dependent mechanisms through which endocannabinoids and exogenous cannabinoids like THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, increase olfaction and subsequent fasting-induced food intake, and suggest that their work points to potential therapeutic targets for feeding behavior-related human diseases like anorexia and obesity.
