Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (2.5 mg/kg BW) treatment acutely depressed plasma levels of luteinizing hormone and prolactin in cannulated rats ovariectomized five weeks earlier. Pinealectomy prior to castration did not eliminate or significantly modify these hormonal changes. Thus, these effects of THC do not appear to be mediated by the pineal gland or influenced by it under long photoperiodic conditions (14L:10D).
