    Rahimi H, Dehpour A, Mehr S, Sharifzadeh M, Ghahremani M, Razmi A, et al. Lithium attenuates cannabinoid-induced dependence in the animal model: involvement of phosphorylated ERK1/2 and GSK-3β signaling pathways. Acta Med Iran. 2014;52:656-63 pubmed
    ..In conclusion, Li neuroprotectionwith regard to cannabinoid abstinence may occur through the regulation of the p-ERK1/2 cascade inconsequent of p-GSK-3β signaling pathways in rats. ..
