    Abstract:
    The effects of δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol upon rat blood pressure were studied in control rats and in rats subjected to repeated immobilization stress over seven days. The immobilization stress was associated with a significant blood pressure increase in animals not receiving δ9-THC. δ9-THC resulted in a significant lowering of blood pressure in non-immobilized rats and blocked the appearance of hypertension in immobilized rats. These data support previous suggestions that THC compounds might be useful in an approach to the therapy of hypertension. © 1973 Springer-Verlag.
