The role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in mammalian reproduction is a rather active field of research, due to its potential exploitation to combat human infertility. Available data shows that the aberrant endocannabinoid signaling negatively affects embryo development, implantation and pregnancy. Although many efforts have been devoted to a better understanding of the ECS in these steps of female reproduction, very little is known about its role in regulating ovarian follicle development and production of mature oocytes. This is the subject of the present review where we discuss current knowledge about the impact and potential exploitation of the ECS and endocannabinoid signaling in mammalian ovary and folliculogenesis.
