Abstract

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a small molecular weight lipophilic substance which is the primary psychoactive ingredient present in marijuana. This three-ringed molecule has been shown to bind to serum lipoproteins and is believed to exert much of its psychoactive effects by its ability to bind to membranes of cells in the central nervous system (1). The mechanism by which THC exerts psychoactive activity is unknown.
