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. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Recent developments in cannabinoid ligands

Recent developments in cannabinoid ligands

  1. helikophis
    Over the past 40 years, much research has been carried out directed toward the characterization of the
    cannabinergic system. With the identification of two G-protein coupled receptors and the endogenous ligand, anandamide, pharmacological targets have expanded to encompass hydrolase and transport proteins as well as novel classes of cannabinoid ligands. Those ligands that demonstrate high affinity for the receptors and good biological efficacy are tied together through lipophilic regions repeatedly demonstrated necessary for activity. This review presents recent developments in the structure–activity relationships of several classes of cannabinoid ligands.
