  • Offers a comprehensive look at cannabinoid structure activity relationships for all structural classes of cannabinoid agonists, including endogenous cannabinoids as well as cannabinoid antagonists/inverse agonists
  • Provides a thorough overview of the cannabinoid receptor field including the genetics and evolution of the cannabinoid system, as well as the molecular biology and structure/function of the cannabinoid receptors
  • Discusses the many therapeutic opportunities provided by the endocannabinoid system, including treatments for metabolic syndrome and immune system disorders

As research has progressed, the cannabinoid CB 1 and CB 2 receptors have expanded significantly in importance within the neuroscience mainstream. In The Cannabinoid Receptors, leading experts introduce newcomers to the cannabinoid field with chapters covering cannabinoid ligand synthesis and structure activity relationships, the molecular pharmacology of the cannabinoid receptors and the endocannabinoid system, and ultimately, the whole animal pharmacology and therapeutic applications for cannabinoid drugs. Adding to those key topics, the book also examines the current direction of the field with chapters on new putative cannabinoid receptors and challenges for future research. As a part of The Receptors ™ series, this volume highlights its receptor with the most thorough, focused and essential information available.

Comprehensive and cutting-edge, The Cannabinoid Receptors serves as an ideal guidebook to what continues to be a fascinating and vital field.
