Press article: Effect of Cannabis on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

This morning, I opened the Metro (free journal distributed in the tube) and found my first subject for this new blog (for which I am so excited!!!)

Title read:

Cannabis may be the cure to traumatic stress, say scientists

If you'd like to read the full article, click HERE (it's a short text)

So I went on looking for the real article published in the scientific journal:

"Cannabinoids prevent the development of Behavioral and Endocrine Alterations in a rat model of Intense Stress", by Eti Ganon-Elazar and Irit Akirav from the department of Psychology, University of Haifa in Israel, published in the journal called Neuropsychopharmacology.

As you can see the title from the metro paper and the real article are somewhat different.
This happens oftens and could lead to serious public misinformation!!

So my aim is to translate the sciencey bits from the real one and give you the real information behind it... Stay tuned...
