Exploring the Mechanisms Underlying Analgesic Properties of Minor Cannabinoids and Terpenes (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

Funding Opportunity RFA-AT-19-009 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Through this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) solicits grant research applications to study minor cannabinoids and terpenes in the cannabis plant as it relates to pain and nociception. Minor cannabinoids are defined as any and all cannabinoids from the cannabis plant other than ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (?9-THC). Cannabinoids and terpenes of particular interest include the following: Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabichromene (CBC), Myrcene, ?-caryophyllene, Limonene, ?-terpineol, Linalool, ?-phellandrene, ?-pinene, ?-pinene, ?-terpinene, and ?-humulene. This initiative intends to support highly innovative basic and/or mechanistic studies in appropriate model organisms and/or human subjects aiming to identify, describe and determine whether minor cannabinoids and/or terpenes can help treat pain. The mechanisms and processes underlying potential contribution of minor cannabinoids and terpenes to pain relief and functional restoration in patients with different pain conditions may be very broad. This initiative encourages interdisciplinary collaborations by experts from multiple fieldspharmacologists, chemists, physicists, physiologists, neuroscientists, psychologists, endocrinologists, immunologists, geneticists, behavioral scientists, clinicians, and others in relevant fields of inquiry.

Recently, emerging body of evidence suggested the endocannabinoid system (ECS) may play essential roles in CIBP. Here, we summarized the current understanding of the antinociceptive mechanisms of endocannabinoids in CIBP and discussed the beneficial effects of endocannabinoid for CIBP treatmen...
