Background: Cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2 or CNR2) is involved in cannabinoid- induced central nerve system effects. It could be a receptor for anandamide. The receptor is a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of various disease conditions, such as pain, multiple sclerosis, vascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other central nerve system disorders.
