CONCLUSION: Besides their central role in controlling food behaviours, peripheral cannabinoids are also involved in regulating adipose tissue and insulin signalling as well as cell metabolism in peripheral tissues such as liver, pancreas, fatty tissue, and skeletal muscle. Altogether, these data indicate that peripheral cannabinoids can provide new therapeutic targets not only for EDs but also for metabolic disease. PMID: 29437028 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In addition, the study aimed to compare the emotional reactions to the aforementioned clips between two gro...
