1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour.

Cannabimimetic activity from CP-47,497, a derivative of 3- phenylcyclohexanol

    CP-47,497 (cis-3-[2-hydroxy-4(1,1-dimethylheptyl)phenyl]-cyclohexan-1- ol) is characterized as a cannabimimetic agent, with 3 to 28 times greater potency than delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol delta 9-THC), based on the following. In common with delta 9-THC and other active structures closely related chemically to delta 9-THC, CP-47,497 exerts analgesic, motor depressant, anticonvulsant and hypothermic effects. It elicits vocalization in palpated rats and ataxia in dogs. In drug discrimination studies in rats, the stimulus properties of delta 9-THC (3.2 mg/kg i.p.) are generalized to CP-47,497, with an absolute threshold dose 3 to 14 times lower than the threshold dose of delta 9- THC itself, depending on route. Furthermore, rats are unable to discriminate between the stimulus properties of equated i.p. doses of delta 9-THC and CP-47,497 after prolonged training. Despite its potent behavioral effects, CP-47,497, like delta 9-THC, does not resemble standard antipsychotic, antidepressant, antianxiety or hypnotic drugs in simple drug interaction tests. Based on its pharmacology, CP-47,497 exemplifies a simplified structure capable of producing many effects in common with those of delta 9-THC and 9-normethyl-9 beta-OH- hexahydrocannabinol.
