APP-FUBINACA is an indazole-based synthetic cannabinoid that has been sold online as a designer drug.[1] Pharmacological testing showed APP-FUBINACA to have only moderate affinity for the CB1 receptor, with a Ki of 708 nM, while its EC50 was not tested.[2] It contains a phenylalanine amino acid residue in its structure. [3]


Sweden's public health agency suggested to classify APP-FUBINACA as hazardous substance on March 24, 2015.[4]
