Long term toxicology studies with THC were carried out by the National Institute of Mental Health in the late 1960’s (10ER ). These included a 90-day study with a 30-day recovery period in both rats and monkeys and involved not only 9 -THC but also 8 -THC and a crude extract of marijuana. Doses of cannabis or cannabinoids in the range 50–500 mg/kg caused reduced food intake and lower body weight.

Another way of demonstrating the rewarding effects of drugs in animals is the conditioned place preference paradigm, in which an animal learns to approach an environment in which it has previously received a rewarding stimulus. Rats had a positive THC place preference after doses as low as 1 mg/kg (104E ). Some studies have suggested that there may be links between the development of dependence to cannabinoids and to opiates (105E ). Leslie Iversen Some of the behavioral signs of rimonabantinduced withdrawal in THC-treated rats can be mimicked by the opiate antagonist naloxone (106E ).
