Two more Project CBD columns: Weird animal models and unexpected cannabis therapies

My last two columns on the latest in cannabis and cannabinoid science share some common ground: both cover the rare, unusual, and unexpected. The first, published on February 16, covers recent research into human health conditions not commonly considered treatable with cannabis: oral ulcers, gynecologic pain, and spinal disorders. The second, published March 9, covers recent research using animal models that might be surprising: zebrafish, lobsters, and tobacco hornworm caterpillars. (All animals except insects and protozoa possess endocannabinoid systems, but even insects like tobacco hornworms can respond to CBD, which acts on a variety of non-cannabinoid receptors.)
