  • liposoluble components are Cannabinoids
  • Chemical Components of Cannabis
  • Introduction
  • A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid . Tetrahydrocannabinol. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive component of the Cannabis plant. . This is because they are fat-soluble, lipophilic molecules that accumulate in fatty tissues. Research shows the. Apr 19, They are considered to be liposoluble molecules classified Like many other components of cannabis, CBN is rejected by water, as it is only. Jul 3, Cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.) are hydrophobic (water-hating) oily substances and, as such, not water-soluble. They can, however, be.

    liposoluble components are Cannabinoids

    In this sense the presence of CBN in cannabis is usually associated with the aging of the plant: One of the characteristics of CBN is that it is contains psychoactive components, but they are between 8 and 10 times less strong than in THC , so its effects are attenuated. Several studies have investigated its effects on mice and pigeons comparing it with the effect of THC [1].

    Thus, it has been found that one of the most important benefits of cannabinol are the relaxing effects when doses much more potent than THC are delivered. Other studies have also detected particularly sedative side effects of CBN, which could improve sleep quality.

    Combined with different terpenes hydrocarbon compounds produced by several plants , CBN has analgesic, anti-insomnia, anti-convulsive and anxiolytic properties, among others. Other studies have also observed anti-bacteriological , anti-inflammatory and appetite stimulant effects. These can be anionic, cationic, nonionic, and zwitterionic.

    This is especially relevant on the nanoscale where biomaterials function differently can introduce undesirable, adverse and sometimes toxic effects. Cannabinoid therapy [] Cannabinoid based medications have been intensely studied since the endogenous cannabinoid system was discovered two decades ago.

    The Endocannabinoid System regulates numerous fundamental physiological processes involving the CNS and autonomic nervous system, immune, endocrine, reproductive and cardiovascular activity. Imbalances in the Endocannabinoid System can produce impairments of various processes including neuroinflammation, immunomodulation and food control.

    The binding of the cannabinoid ligand to the receptor leads to a signaling cascade that either decreases or increases the activity of a particular enzyme to raise a receptor response above basal activity They target proteins that are usually transcription factors, proteins that bind DNA and promote the expression of certain genes within the cell that alter cellular communication.

    Cannabinoids Effects on Cell Membranes [] Cell membranes are primarily composed of a variety of lipids in the form of two asymmetric leaflets and functional proteins.

    Low Bioavailability of Oral and Intraoral Delivered Cannabinoids [] Cannabinoids are nearly insoluble in water but soluble in lipids, alcohols and other non-polar organic solvents. Safety Considerations of Cannabinoid Nanoparticles [] At the nanoscale, the physical and chemical properties of materials differ in fundamental ways from the properties of the atoms and molecules of bulk materials.

    Intraoral Sublingual Delivery of Nanoparticle Cannabinoids [] The absorption of the lipid nanoparticle drugs through the sublingual route is 3 to 10 times greater than the oral route and is only surpassed by hypodermic injection. During the auditory task, again these two compounds had opposite effects in the superior temporal cortex when subjects listened to speech and in the occipital cortex during visual processing [ Winton-Brown et al.

    Our group also assessed whether pretreatment with CBD could prevent the acute psychotic symptoms induced by dTHC when six healthy volunteers were administered dTHC intravenously on two occasions, after placebo or CBD pretreatment [ Bhattacharyya et al. Both animal and human studies indicate that CBD has anxiolytic properties. In fact in a recent double-blind study carried out on patients with generalized social anxiety disorder, it was found that relative to placebo, CBD significantly reduced subjective anxiety and its effect was related to its activity on limbic and paralimbic areas as shown by single photon emission computed tomography [ Crippa et al.

    CBD has also been proposed to have antipsychotic effects and is considered a potential antipsychotic medicine, particularly due its relatively low side-effect profile [ Zuardi et al. Another interesting compound of the plant, dtetrahydrocannabivarin dTHCV , a novel CB1R antagonist, also exerts potentially useful actions in the treatment of epilepsy and obesity [ Pertwee, ; Izzo et al.

    A review of this compound, along with dTHC and CBD by Pertwee suggests that plant extractions of d - 9-THCV produces its antiobesity effects more by increasing energy expenditure than by reducing food intake [ Pertwee, ]. The author also points out that a medicine such as dTHCV, by simultaneously blocking CB1Rs and activating CB2Rs, may have potential for the management of disorders such as chronic liver disease and obesity, particularly when these are associated with inflammation.

    However, the CBD content was found to be extremely low in more recent times. More recently, a meta-analysis to assess the potency of cannabis from to was carried out. From 21 case series covering a number of countries, a recent and consistent worldwide increase in cannabis potency was reported [ Cascini et al. These findings suggest that current trends for preferring higher THC content variants carry significant health risks, particularly to those who are susceptible to its harmful effects.

    Indeed, Morgan and colleagues carried out a study on current users, which included 66 daily and 54 recreational users, whose hair analyses revealed their THC and CBD amounts. The study found that higher THC levels in hair in daily users were associated with increased depression and anxiety, as well as poorer prose recall and source memory [ Morgan et al. However, higher CBD in hair was associated with lower psychosis-like symptoms and better recognition memory.

    In relation to people with psychosis, health risks are even higher with stronger variants of the plant. In a recent study of people with a first episode of psychosis, it was found that patients used higher-potency cannabis for longer durations and greater frequency compared with a healthy control group [ Di Forti et al.

    As the stronger variants have been taking over the street market, there has been a surge of interest in studying the links between cannabis use and mental health problems. The first to draw attention to such a link was a number of epidemiological studies and reviews, which pointed towards an association between the use of cannabis and the increased risk of developing a psychotic illness, in a dose-dependent manner [ Zammit et al. A psychotic outcome is not the only diagnostic category which has been associated with cannabis use.

    Symptoms of depression and anxiety commonly coexist with cannabis use and lead to diagnostic dilemmas [ Nunes et al. Cannabis use can induce such symptoms, as well as be used secondary to a primary depressive illness [ Dakwar et al. As the majority of the studies have had psychotic illness as an outcome, in this section we will mainly be focusing on this diagnostic category.

    This is important as the strong THC variants of cannabis use have been increasing steeply, as have concerns on cannabis-related health risks, particularly for young people [ Hall and Degenhardt, ; Potter et al. Recent epidemiological studies point towards a link between the use of cannabis and the development of a psychotic illness [ Zammit et al. Further evidence comes from a systematic review of longitudinal and population-based studies which show that cannabis use significantly increases the risk of development of a psychotic illness in a dose-dependent manner [ Moore et al.

    The clinical picture of transient psychosis can be indistinguishable from a frank acute psychosis with delusions and hallucinations, except for its short duration. Evidently there is considerable variation in the effects of cannabis on individuals. The biological basis of this variable sensitivity is yet unclear. There have been a number of studies exploring which groups are more vulnerable to developing a psychotic outcome as a result of cannabis use [ van Os et al.

    Findings so far indicate that the effect of cannabis use is much stronger in those with any predisposition for psychosis at baseline than in those without [ Henquet et al. Indeed, individuals with a predisposition to psychosis indicated by a positive family history of psychosis have been found to be particularly sensitive to the effects of cannabis [ McGuire et al. Another indicator for a higher psychosis risk is the presence of subclinical psychotic features and again such individuals have been affected by a higher risk of developing a psychotic illness [ Henquet et al.

    Furthermore those who are at ultra high risk for psychosis have been reported to be more sensitive to the psychotogenic effects of cannabis compared with users in the general population [ Peters et al.

    Because of the reported links between the schizotypal personality and schizophrenia, this type of personality disorder has come under scrutiny in examining the role of cannabis in producing psychotic symptoms.

    Indeed, it has been shown that people scoring high in schizotypy who use cannabis are more likely to have psychosis-like experiences at the time of use, together with unpleasant side effects [ Barkus et al. This study has been replicated and it has been confirmed that those with schizotypal personality disorder carry a higher risk of experiencing psychotic symptoms with cannabis use [ Stirling et al.

    Most recently, another study has provided further support for a strong association between early cannabis use and the development of schizophrenia spectrum disorder symptoms [ Anglin et al. The reported vulnerability factors mentioned here imply a strong genetic predisposition and there have been a number of studies looking particularly to specific genes which have been implicated in psychoses.

    The first such study was carried out by Caspi and colleagues [ Caspi et al. In this longitudinal study, a specific susceptibility gene which has been linked to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, catechol-O-methyltransferase COMT , was examined in a representative birth cohort followed to adulthood.

    The study found that carriers of the COMT valine allele were most likely to exhibit psychotic symptoms and to develop schizophreniform disorder if they used cannabis before the age of However, the number of people carrying this allele was small in this study. Using a case-only design of people with schizophrenia, Zammit and colleagues re-examined this association but their findings did not support the different effects of cannabis use on schizophrenia according to variation in COMT [ Zammit et al.

    More recently, van Winkel and colleagues looked at the effects of recent cannabis use whilst examining single nucleotide polymorphisms in 42 candidate genes in patients with psychosis and their unaffected siblings [ van Winkel et al.

    The authors found that genetic variation in serine-threonine protein kinase AKT1 may mediate both short- and long-term effects on psychosis expression associated with cannabis use. Further support for the possible involvement of the AKT1 gene comes from our study with healthy volunteers.

    This study found that, during the encoding and recall conditions of the verbal memory task, the induction of psychotic symptoms by dTHC was correlated with the attenuated striatal and midbrain activation only in those who were G homozygotes of AKT1 and carriers of the 9-repeat allele dopamine transporter DAT1 [ Bhattacharyya et al. Apart from schizotypal personality, the vulnerability factors to the psychotogenic effects of cannabis require replication.

    It is clear that further work needs to be carried out to explore the biological mechanisms which determine the vulnerability towards a psychotic outcome. During the last decade, endocannabinoid research has been one of the fastest growing fields in psychopharmacology, opening ways to discover new medicines for a wide variety of health problems, ranging from metabolic disorders, to glaucoma and schizophrenia.

    The distribution of the endocannabinoid system in the brain is interesting as the very same brain areas are also implicated in psychoses, particularly in schizophrenia.

    Furthermore, complex and intricate involvement of this system with other neurotransmitters such as dopamine, GABA and glutamatergic systems may have implications for the development of a psychotic illness. Naturally, due to the recent and constant increase in the availability of higher THC content variants of cannabis around the world, there have been increasing concerns about the health risks, particularly for young people. However, cannabis affects people differently and therefore it is important to understand what makes someone more at risk and how they differ compared with those who do not develop psychotic illness.

    Here we have provided an overview of the available information on the risk factors which may make an individual more at risk, such as predisposition to psychosis, schizotypal personality and certain susceptibility genes. Finding groups who are vulnerable is particularly important so that they can be targeted for early preventative and therapeutic interventions.

    Such a search would also lead to the discovery of the biochemical mechanisms involved in cannabis and endocannabinoid research and ultimately to a better understanding of how the brain and the body functions.
