[The endocannabinoid system].

“The endocannabinoid system is a physiological system, which is responsible for the control of glucose and lipid-metabolism, as well as for the regulation of the body weight.

 The endocannabinoid receptors are distributed both in the central and peripher nervous system.

Different studies provide evidence that an hyperactive endocannabinoid system is involved in the development of different cardiovascular risk factors.

The pharmacological blockade of these cannabinoid receptors may represent a new approach for cardiometabolic risk management.””
