THC, An Active Ingredient in Marijuana, and Rats’ Intake of a Sweetened Alcoholic Beverage
There is substantial evidence to indicate that some drugs that are often used recreationally modify intakes of palatable ingesta . For example, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in small doses enhances caloric intake [1,2]. Among people, THC is also used in combination with other drugs such as ethanol (E). It is interesting to see if a drug such as THC also increases intake of a sweetened alcoholic beverage.
