In this behind-the-scenes episode we are joined once again by Dr. Linda Klumpers, a clinical pharmacologist that has been spending her professional career understanding how cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors work in the body.
We spend this episode discussing the concept of CB1 receptor antagonists and the story of a hopeful drug from the 1990s, Rimonabant, that ended up teaching researchers a painful lesson about cannabinoid receptor pharmacology. We also discuss our limited understanding of CB2 receptors, the future of cannabinoid receptor antagonist drugs, and more!
