Title: Cannabinoids found naturally in the brain may suppress vomiting and nausea

Abstract: The naturally occurring cannabinoid 2AG suppressed vomiting in shrews by attaching to the CB1 receptor. 2AG, along with its metabolite, AA, also suppressed nausea-induced conditioned gaping in rats, but this effect was largely independent of CB1 (or CB2) receptors.
