In vitro determination of the CB1 efficacy of illicit synthetic cannabinoids.

Summary of "In vitro determination of the CB1 efficacy of illicit synthetic cannabinoids."

The morbidity and mortality associated with recreational use of synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonists (SCRAs) may reflect strong activation of CB1 receptors and is a major health concern. The properties of SCRA at CB1 are not well defined, so we sought to develop an assay to determine acute CB1 efficacy using receptor depletion with the irreversible CB1 antagonist AM6544, followed by the application of the Black and Leff operational model to calculate efficacy.
