Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol binds cannabinoid (CB1 and CB2) receptors, which are activated
by endogenous compounds (endocannabinoids) and are involved in a wide range of
physiopathological processes (eg modulation of neurotransmitter release, regulation of pain
perception, and of cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and liver functions). The well-known
psychotropic effects of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, which are mediated by activation of brain
CB1 receptors, have greatly limited its clinical use.
