Before I began editing, these pages were a jumbled mess of confused science and faux-science that had clearly been compiled by recreational marijuana users with minimal understand of how solid research is conducted or reported. Most of the sections were written independently and did not read cohesively when considered by page; as such much of my efforts were spent cleaning up the inconsistencies, miscitations, and straight up fallacies that littered each topic discussed. In addition, I added more citations from appropriate and current research and reorganized the pages so that they are presented in a more digestable format. In summary, these pages on endocannabinoid receptors were not lacking attention before my edits, but had rather received too much attention from people who just did not know what they were talking about. I have simplified, clarified, and expounded where appropriate with the intention of creating a more cohesive and through product. The extent of these edits are subtle, but were based on eight research pages that I read dealing with the topics I addressed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wyliea (talk • contribs) 01:45, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
It should be made clear that the 'structure' shown for CB1 is only a 9 amino acid portion of one of the peptides of the full receptor. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a full structure of the whole receptor on the PDB, but PDB ID 2KOE (Human cannabinoid receptor 1 - helix 7/8 peptide) might be an better choice until a complete structure is published.

Studies show CB1 mediated plasticity in Dorsal striatum, Amygdala, Prefrontal cortex, and Ventral tegmental area as well as the BNST, so this section can be updated. Here is an review by Sidpura and Parsons on the topicCite error: A <ref> tag is missing the closing </ref> (see the help page). </ref>. I just added a sentence.
