In Marihuana and medication, top physicians and scientists from around the globe significantly assessment the pharmacological and molecular foundation of the healing homes of marihuana and its energetic element, THC. They aspect the extensive array of marihuana's results on mind functionality, the immune approach, female and male reproductive functionality, and cardiac and pulmonary functionality, in addition to review its medical purposes in psychiatry, glaucoma, soreness administration, melanoma chemotherapy, and AIDS remedy.

The editors have additionally integrated key historic fabric tracing the debatable background of marihuana in technological know-how and medication over the centuries.

I'l1_ THC depresses rewarding self-stimulation behavior, and tolerance develops to this. But we cannot yet reliably link these results to definite neurochemical changes. The curious relation of i'l1_ THC to opiates remains: totally different chemical structures; a number of shared effects; a number of interactions with naloxone; and curious patterns of crosstolerance, never fully reciprocal, and varying with the test used. The suggestions that THC may change the affinity of opiates or of related endogenous peptides for their receptors, or that they release such peptides, deserve detailed study.
