'Cannabinoids' is a broad term covering a group of natural products
from Cannabis sativa, one of which locks on to specific receptors -
protein molecules on the surface of cells - known as cannabinoid
receptors. Over the past decades scientists have found that
cannabinoid receptors and their endogenous ligands, the
endocannabinoids, are involved in a vast array of physiological
functions, including helping to control brain activity, energy
metabolism, heart function, the immune system and even
reproduction. In Cannabinoids, Vincenzo Di Marzo has assembled
contributions from international experts to provide the definitive
guide to what continues to be a rapidly developing research field.
After an introductory historical chapter, the book continues by
looking at the biochemical, genetic and molecular elements of
cannabinoids, followed by chapters covering their role in health
and disease. The final chapter outlines the need for a new
nomenclature to reflect the complex and multi-disciplinary nature
of this area.
