Definition - What does Cannabinor mean?

Cannabinor (once known as PRS-211,375) is a synthetic non-psychotropic cannabinoid. It has the ability to bind to the brain's secondary cannabinoid receptor (CB2), which is similar to the natural cannabidiol (CBD) found in cannabis.

Currently, Cannabinor's accepted uses will be an anti-inflammatory and a treatment for hypertension. It is also believed to be an acceptable pain reliever. After testing, it may also be used for the treatment of memory problems, weight loss, to spur appetite, brain neurodegeneration, and for possible tumor treatments.

MaximumYield explains Cannabinor

Cannabinor is made from the synthetic chemicals central cannabinoid (CB1), peripheral cannabinoid (CB2), and non-CB receptor-mediated pharmacology. The safety of the drug is still being researched in clinical trials.

Unfortunately, during the drug’s Phase II study, it failed to perform as expected in the pain model, although it was considered safe. Despite its less than optimal efficacy in the Phase II trial, researchers still plan to push forward with additional trails and research because Cannabinor has done well in animal studies where it has functioned as good as or better than a variety of painkillers including morphine, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and Gabapentin.
