Cannabinoids and ghrelin have both central and peripheral metabolic and cardiac effects via AMP-activated protein kinase.

Abstract:

Endocannabinoids and ghrelin are potent appetite stimulators and are known to interact at a hypothalamic level. However, both also have important peripheral actions, including beneficial effects on the ischemic heart and increasing adipose tissue deposition, while ghrelin has direct effects on carbohydrate metabolism.
