Biology of Marijuana




Marijuana is the prototypical cannabinoid, and is one of the most widely
used drugs in the world. Interestingly, cannabinoids are molecules
found naturally in the human body and brain as well as in cannabis.

This book provides an extensive reference on the biology of marijuana
and the role of molecular techniques in elucidating neuropharmacological
aspects of cannabinoid receptors and the endogenous compounds that act
upon them. Contributions from experts from around the world describe the
interaction of cannabinoids and endocannabinoids on a wide range of
biological functions including movement, memory and learning, pain,
emotions, endocrine functions and many more. The Biology of Marijuana:
From Gene to Behavior will be of interest to all scientists and
clinicians interested in the biological effects and pharmacology of this
drug.
