CAS#: 1345973-49-0

Description: AB-001 is a cannibimimetic. It is a CB (cannabinoid) receptor ligand that governs the cannabimimetic potency. It is derived from adamantane and is less potent than other ligands which can induce significant hypothermic and bradycardic effects. Its role in binding CB receptors may be useful in therapeutic discovery for relief against MS, particularly when studying selective CB2 agonists. It is also used to treat chronic lower back pain.
