Brain cell growth[edit]

The article says "Per a 2005 article in the Journal Of Clinical Investigation, HU-210 actually stimulates cell growth in the brain's hippocampus region, an opposite effect of drugs like alcohol, nicotine, heroin, and cocaine." A web search shows that many popular science outlets seem to suggest that this result implies that cannabis has the same effect. Does anyone know if such a study has been done with cannabis, and if so, what the results were? Cannabis has been around for much longer and it seems like we should already know if it had the effect described, namely stimulating growth of brain cells. A5 13:07, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

============================================================[edit]

HU-210 probably cannot cause death, at least through respiratory paralysis, in spite of its potency, because the appropriate CB1 receptors are not located in brain areas reponsible for control of that function.

CAS and other stuff[edit]

The old CAS no was the right one for HU-210, the new one is for HU-211. I changed the article a little bit as it mixed both HU-210 and HU-211. The INN of HU-211 is Dexanabinol and HU-210 is just HU-210. -- Panoramix303 (talk) 00:34, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Some more updates[edit]

The sentence about toxicity was removed because it is purely speculative. The references are in a proper format now. -- Panoramix303 (talk) 15:06, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

last paragraph copyrighted?[edit]

I'd like to point that the last paragraph is taken almost word for word from the march 2009 DEA microgram bulletin. wouldn't that be considered as a copyright infringement?
