Another study has found that URB597, which blocks degradation of endocannabinoids, may be a safe and effective depression and pain treatment. I'm a bit confused about the side effect profiles, though. I mean, wouldn't people taking it for depression get the painkiller effects too, and be a bit numb?
Also, Harvard researchers have discovered that the norwhal's signature tusk is actually more like an antenna - a finely tunes sensory organ, unlike anything they had expected or ever seen anywhere else. Which I think is pretty cool.
