Abstract
Five chimpanzees were given Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta(9)THC): 1.0 milligram per kilogram of body weight for 21 days and 4.0 milligrams per kilogram of body weight for 42 days. Although accuracy and speed of performance on a delayed matching-to-sample task were significantly affected by both doses, tolerance to Delta(9)THC did not develop. No long-term behavioral effects of Delta(9)THC were observed after termination of the drug regimens.
