Cannabinoid might help fight obesity

Cannabis drug may help fight obesity Reuters/Yahoo!News 1/30/07 "treatment from cannabis that could help suppress hunger. "The cannabis plant has 70 different cannabinoids in it and each has a different affect on the body,"...Some can stimulate your appetite, and some in the same plant can suppress your appetite. It is amazing both scientifically and commercially," "

Not a ton of details with this story - more like marketing for the pharmaceutical co. that is running trials on this in the 2nd half of 2007 - if things go well a drug based on their research might hit the market in 5 -7 yrs. The interesting thing is that there are a number of other pharmaceutical companies also mining cannabinoids for hunger suppression, pain relief and nausea relief. The utility of this plant is astounding. Even our dog leashes are now made of hemp. The other interesting thing is that these pharmaceuticals all have giant indoor cannabis farms that for obvious reasons the locations remain secret.
