AM-087 is an analgesic drug which is a cannabinoid agonist. It is a derivative of Δ8THC substituted on the 3-position side chain. AM-087 is a potent CB1 agonist with a Ki of 0.43nM, making it around 100x more potent than THC itself. This is most likely due to the bulky bromine substituent on the side chain.[1][2][3]
