    Cannabinoid CB1 receptors have been implicated in the antinociceptive effect of paracetamol. In the current study, we examined whether blockade of CB1 receptors prevent the analgesic activity of dipyrone, in a similar way to paracetamol. Hot-plate and tail-flick tests were used to assess the...
