Modulation Of Oral Morphine Antinociceptive Tolerance And Naloxone-precipitated Withdrawal Signs By Oral Delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol

Addiction to Heroin Addiction to Opiod Based Pain Killers

Key Findings

These results represent the first evidence that oral morphine tolerance and dependence can be circumvented by coadministration of a nonanalgetic dose of Delta 9-THC p.o. In summary, cotreatment with a combination of morphine and Delta 9-THC may prove clinically beneficial in that long-term morphine efficacy is maintained.
