The endogenous cannabinoid, anandamide, has been shown to attenuate naloxone-precipitated opiate withdrawal in rodents. Here we show that the spontaneous, but not the naloxone-precipitated withdrawal syndrome in morphine-dependent mice is attenuated by the inhibitor of carrier-mediated anandamide transport N -(4-hydroxyphenyl) arachidonylethanolamide (AM404) (2 and 10 mg/kg, i.p.). These results suggest that spontaneous but not opioid antagonist-precipitated withdrawal is associated with dynamic changes in endogenous cannabinoid signaling.
