Decreased circulating anandamide levels in preeclampsia.

“The endocannabinoid system has a key role in female reproduction, including implantation, decidualization and placentation. A growing number of studies indicate that placental and peripheral blood anandamide levels correlate closely with both spontaneous miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.

Anandamide has also been implicated in blood pressure regulation.

In this study, we aimed to determine circulating anandamide levels in preeclampsia for the first time in the literature…

In conclusion, we demonstrated for the first time in the literature that serum anandamide concentrations are decreased in women with preeclampsia.”
