is a drug that acts as a potent and highly selective CB2 receptor inverse agonist
, with a Ki
of 0.6 nM at CB2
and 400 nM at the related CB1
It is used in scientific research for investigating the function of the CB2
as well as for studying the effects of CB1
receptors in isolation, as few CB1
agonists that do not also show significant activity as CB2
agonists are available.
It has also been found to be an inhibitor of sterol O-acyltransferase
, an effect that appears to be independent from its action on CB2
