JWH-047 is a selective cannabinoid ligand that binds to both CB1 and CB2. It has a bindining affinity of Ki = 0.9 nM for the CB2 subtype, and more than 65 times selectivity over the CB1.[1]

In the United States, all CB1 receptor agonists of the 3-(1-naphthoyl)indole class such as JWH-047 are Schedule I Controlled Substances.[2]
