About this book

Legalization of cannabis extracts around the world has led to a resurgence of interest into research surrounding endocannabinoids (eCBs) and the endocannabinoid system. This system is formed of a complex array of receptors, metabolic enzymes and transporters that finely tune the manifold biological activities of eCBs and there is an urgent need for the development of selective drugs to dissect the contribution of eCBs to the aetiology of various diseases. New Tools to Interrogate Endocannabinoid Signalling comprehensively covers the innovative research into both natural and synthetic compounds that affect this pathway and taking a target-based approach, assesses their potential for therapeutic use. With contributions from global leaders in the field, this timely volume will be a valuable resource to pharmaceutical researchers and medicinal chemists working in natural products and endocannabinoid drug discovery in academia and industry.
