Cannabis Could be Key to Treating Anorexia, According to Study

A new study published by the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging has found that anorexia causes a “widespread transient disturbance” in the body’s endocannabinoid system, indicating that cannabcannabisis consumption could solve much of the problem by fixing this disturbance.

According to the study’s abstract; “Using [18F]MK-9470 and small animal positron emission tomography (PET), we investigated for the first time cerebral changes in type 1 cannabinoid (CB1) receptor binding in vivo in the activity-based rat model of anorexia (ABA), in comparison to distinct motor- and food-related control conditions and in relation to gender and behavioural variables.”
