A rotary evaporator was used to reach the powder. Thirty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into three equal groups. First group received subcutaneous injection of 2 mg/kg of the extract in 0.6 mL volume daily for three weeks, second group just equal volume of 70% ethanol similarly and the third group received just distilled water identically. Spontaneous alternation behavior (SAB) test was undertaken using plexiglas maze . Tissues from adipose tissue were provided for histopathological assessment after 7, 14, and 21 days post-intervention. Results : Pathological findings in adipose tissue after in vivo administration of cannabis in different groups of rats showed infiltration of mononuclear cells, inflammation, increase in connective tissue exudate secretion, lobulation in adipose tissue, saponification, degeneration, and necrosis happened after 1, 2 and 3 weeks. Regarding SAB test one week after cannabis use, mean percentage of open arm time (OAT), mean percentages of time spent in the closed arm time (CAT), mean number of times rats passing from the center and number of rats’ peek; the anxiety did not change, but after 2 and 3 weeks following cannabis use, the anxiety level increased. Conclusion : Histological findings denoted to degeneration, and necrosis in adipose tissue after cannabis use.
