The endocannabinoid system mediates aerobic exercise-induced antinociception in rats.

“These results indicate that exercise could activate the endocannabinoid system, producing antinociception.

Supporting this hypothesis, liquid-chromatography/mass-spectrometry measurements demonstrated that plasma levels of endocannabinoids (anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol) and of anandamide-related mediators (palmitoylethanolamide and oleoylethanolamide) were increased after AE.

Therefore, these results suggest that the endocannabinoid system mediates aerobic exercise-induced antinociception at peripheral and central levels.”
