    I've read similar statements about cannabinoids and even specifically about marijuana in a number of scientific journals, including the Journal of Nature. This particular affect of pot seems to come up quite frequently.
    Another article about cannabinoids I saw recently regards UB-210. http://www.caymanchem.com/app/template/Product.vm/catalog/90082/a/z" [Broken]
    Ref: http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn8155" [Broken]
    But other research found no similar neuron growth for the active ingredient in pot:
    Personally, I'd be a lot happier with a doob from time to time. :tongue:
