Cannabinoids and Osteoporosis \

Entrez PubMed

Anyone with concerned about osteoporesis may have some interesting drugs coming down the pipe. The link goes to a paper on the value of cannabinoid antagonists in increasing bone mass in mice. What's interesting to me is there is a cannabinoid antagoinst coming to market soon that is a weight loss aid (rimonabant). It should be interesting to see if the clinical populations that took rimonabant had any difference in bone mass compared with placebo.
