The plant Cannabis sativa has been used for centuries for the effects of its psychoactive resins. The term "marijuana" typically refers to tobacco-like preparations of the leaves and flowers. The plant contains more than 400 chemicals but the cannabinoid δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the major psychoactive constituent. "Hashish" is the resin extracted from the tops of flowering plants and generally has a much higher THC concentration. Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the… Expand
Marijuana intoxication in a cat
TLDR
This is the first case of a delta- 9-tetrahydrocannabinol intoxication in a cat with both description of the clinical findings and the blood concentration of delta-9-THC and its main metabolites. Expand

TLDR
The toxicological profile of Cannabis sativa L. intoxication is directly related to the proportion between the concentration of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol in the ingested sample. Expand

Comparison of the Neurotoxic and Seizure-Inducing Effects of Synthetic and Endogenous Cannabinoids with Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol
TLDR
It is found that SCs generally produced more seizures than THC, and of particular significance was the finding that mAEA produced far greater hypothermia than THC (similar to most SCs), but unlike the SCs and THC, produced no seizures. Expand
A Report of Adverse Effects Associated With the Administration of Cannabidiol in Healthy Dogs
Cannabis-based therapies have been used for centuries for various medicinal purposes. They have recently gained recognition as an effective treatment for medical conditions in humans; and, as such,Expand

Cannabinoids in Medicine: Cancer, Immunity, and Microbial Diseases
TLDR
It is proposed that the currently ongoing and future clinical trials should be accompanied by research focused on the cellular and molecular response to cannabinoids and Cannabis extracts, which will ultimately allow us to fully understand the mechanism, potency, and safety profile of cannabinoids as single agents and as complementary drugs.

Comparison of acute oral toxicity of cannabinoids in rats, dogs and monkeys.
TLDR
Rats treated with equimolar amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol from the three compounds exhibited equivalent diversities and severities of clinical signs, and single oral doses of Δ9-THC and Δ8- THC between 3000 and 9000/mg/kg were nonlethal in dogs and monkeys. Expand
Cannabinoid receptors and their endogenous ligands.
TLDR
Results of structure-activity relationship experiments revealed that 2-arachidonoylglycerol, but not anandamide, is the intrinsic natural ligand for the cannabinoid receptor. Expand

TLDR
A significant correlation was found between the number of medical marijuana licenses and marijuana toxicosis cases seen in 2 veterinary hospitals in Colorado and UDST may be unreliable for the detection ofarijuana toxicosis in dogs. Expand
