Data Sheet

Background: Cannabinoid Receptor 1, CNR1 also known as CB1, is involved in cannabinoid induced CNS effects. It acts by inhibiting intracellular adenylate cyclase activity and could be a receptor for anandamide. CNR1 is a potential target for the development of novel therapeutic drugs in the treatment of various conditions, such as pain, feeding disorders, vascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other central nerve system disorders.
