Biological Activity for JWH 133

JWH 133 is a potent CB2 selective agonist (Ki = 3.4 nM). Approx. 200-fold selective over CB1 receptors. Active in vivo, reducing spasticity in a murine model of multiple sclerosis. Activity also enhances the release of IL-10 by LPS/IFN-γ-stimulated macrophages and results in downregulation of the IL-12 subunit p40.
