What is the cannabinoid receptor-2 (CB2).

  • Similar to CB1, CB2 is a G protein receptor that serves as a target for endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids.
  • These CB2 receptors are primarily immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory.
  • They are expressed on the cell membranes of B cells, T cells and macrophages.
  • When signaled, CB2 receptors are generally inhibitory to immune cell activation.
  • Expression of CB2 receptors is inducible and the number of receptors is increased by inflammation.
  • As found in studies conducted in mice, reduced CB2 receptor signaling results in increased severity of inflammation in multiple organs.
