Raphael Mechoulam, the man who first synthesized THC, the main ingredient in marijuana, and is often referred to as the “father of marijuana research,” recently gave a brief history of marijuana and its receptors in the central nervous system during a plenary talk at the 2014 meeting of the International College of Neuropsychopharmacology. In Syria, hundreds of years ago, the drug was named ganzigunnu, meaning “the drug that takes away the mind.” It has also been called azalla, meaning “hand of the ghost.” Among the 100 compounds in marijuana, the best-known ingredient is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9 THC), which produces most of...
