Methods for the Synthesis of Cannabinergic Ligands

Cannabinoids Biosynthesis

Nikas, Richard I. Duclos, Jr., and Alexandros Makriyannis During the last decade, numerous cannabinergic ligands with high affinity and selectivity profiles for cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 emerged from rigorously pursued structure-activity relationship studies. This chapter focuses on the synthetic aspects of key cannabi-noid receptor probes representing the different classes of cannabinergic ligands that encompasses classical cannabinoids CCs including some...
