Description

Marihuana Biological Effects: Analysis, Metabolism, Cellular Responses, Reproduction and Brain contains the proceedings of the Satellite Symposium of the 7th International Congress of Pharmacology held at Paris on July 22-23, 1978. Organized into four parts, this book begins with a discussion on the quantification of cannabinoids and their metabolites in the body fluids and tissues. Part II describes the cannabinoids and cellular metabolism. Parts III and IV explain the effects of cannabis on reproduction and brain.
