Nabilone synthetic cannabinoid

Nabilone synthetic cannabinoid

Nabilone is one such synthetic cannabinoid that was introduced to the U.K. market as a treatment for chemotherapy nausea in the 1980s. It has recently been tested for treatment of pain and movement disorders. In 2006, nabilone was finally brought to the U.S. market under the name Cesamet. Like most cannabinoid analogues, nabilone does not have the unique psychoactive properties found in THC and has not gained widespread usage. Other synthetic cannabinoid analogues like levonatrodol and synhexy have been subjected to tests over the years, but haven’t reached the market. Many other synthetic cannabinoids are currently under investigation, many of which have proven to be useful in laboratory research.
