Preliminary behavioral experiments in rats with thecannabinoid agonist HU 210 (12.5–100mg/kg IP) showed that it has a potent cannabimimetic profile similar to that ofD9THC;the drug dose dependently depressed locomotor activity, rearing, and grooming and elicited vocalization and circling at thehighest doses. In subsequent studies on pigeons, HU 210 (12.5–50mg/kg SC) confirmed its sedative effects; it also affordedprotection against vomiting induced by cisplatin (7.5 mg/kg IV) and emetine (20 mg/kg SC) and emetine-induced headshake.
