JWH-366 (naphthalen-1-yl-(1-pentyl-5-pyridin-3-ylpyrrol-3-yl)methanone) is a synthetic cannabinoid from the naphthoylpyrrole family which acts as an agonist of the CB1 (Ki = 191 ± 12nM) and CB2 (Ki = 24 ± 1nM) receptors, with a strong (~8x) selectivity for the CB2 receptor over the CB1 receptor. JWH-366 was first synthesized in 2006 by John W. Huffman and colleagues to examine the nature of ligand binding to the CB1 receptor.
In the United States JWH-366 is not federally scheduled, although some states have passed legislation banning the sale, possession, and manufacture of JWH-366.
In Canada, JWH-366 and other naphthoylpyrrole-based cannabinoids are Schedule II controlled substances under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
In the United Kingdom, JWH-366 and other naphthoylpyrrole-based cannabinoids are considered Class B drugs under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
