31 new Publications and Reports from Q3

We have been informed that we missed a few publications from the Q3 list we posted some weeks ago. Thanks for letting us know…thats what friends are for.

Here is the (hopefully) complete list of publications from Q3 (and a part of Q2).

Learn more about how cannabis inhibits Nav currents at therapeutically relevant concentrations or venom from the giant red bull ant published by, among others, Xenon Pharmaceuticals, GSK, AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Eisai, Uni Queensland and more
