Five subjects were given oral Delta-9-THC at 35 mg/day in a double-blind, 20-day crossover trial. Determinations of the Achilles reflex, H reflex, electrical and vapo-coolant skin stimulation, and dynamic stretching of the gastrocnemius-soleus muscles were made in the right lower extremity every other day during the trial. Individual mean scores for each trial period were compared using unpaired t-tests.
