Brief Summary:

A study on the fate and elimination of 11-Nor-Delta9-carboxy-9-tetrahydrocannabinol was up to now not conducted, except of one single experiment in which (lacking) psychopharmacological activity was tested after intravenous infusion of 20 mg in a human individual. In this study, however, the authors did not trace the above questions due to analytical and methodological deficits.

Aim of the study is to determine the pharmacokinetics of THCCOOH and THCCOOH-Glu after intravenous ad-ministration of 5 mg THCCOOH in healthy individuals

Detailed Description:

To determine the pharmacokinetics of THCCOOH after intravenous administration of THCCOOH (5 mg) and its formed glucuronide in healthy individuals in order to improve the possibilities for the assessment of unfitness to drive. For these purposes the following criteria will be studied:

THCCOOH

  • Primary: Area under the plasma concentration time curve (AUCtotal) Maximal plasma concentrations (Cmax) Time of Cmax (tmax) Terminal elimination half-life (t1/2)
  • Secondary: Systemic and renal clearance (Cls, CLr) Volume of distribution of (Vc) Formed THCCOOH-glu
  • Primary: Area under the plasma concentration time curve (AUCtotal) Maximal plasma concentrations (Cmax) Time of Cmax (tmax) Terminal elimination half-life (t1/2)
  • Secondary: Systemic and renal clearance (Cls, CLr) Volume of distribution (Vc)

Study Type : Observational
Enrollment : 10 participants
Time Perspective: Prospective
