CGP-7930 is a compound used in scientific research which acts as a positive allosteric modulator at the GABAB receptor.[1][2][3][4] It has anxiolytic effects in animal studies,[5][6] and has a synergistic effect with GABAB agonists such as baclofen and GHB,[7][8] as well as reducing self-administration of ethanol and cocaine.[9][10]
