The inflammatory consequences of chronic cannabis use

Chronic cannabis use has been associated with defects in the regions of the brain that regulate motor control, but how the active component of the drug, THC, mediates these defects is incompletely understood. In this issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, Andres Ozaita and colleagues at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona exposed mice to sub-chronic doses of THC and observed deficiencies in learning and coordination associated with brain inflammation and downregulation of the THC receptor CB1R. Furthermore, Ozaita and colleagues found that the defects in these animals could be prevented by treatment with an anti-inflammatory agent. This work suggests that brain inflammation resulting from decreased CB1R is directly related to the learning and motor coordination side effects associated with cannabis consumption. In the accompanying commentary, Nephi Stella at the Center for Human Development and Disability in Seattle points out that these findings raise questions about the safety of medicinal THC applications.
