A new, diverse group of synthetic drugs designed to activate human cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 have emerged in the illicit drug market over recent years. These synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonists (SCRAs) have been linked to a variety of drug-related intoxication and death cases around the world. The intensity, duration, and exact effects of SCRAs can vary greatly between users and seem to be influenced by several factors such as the drug’s chemical makeup, the user’s age, their sex, body size, presence of other substances in their body, etc. Further, users often don’t even know the exact drug present and its concentration when using SCRAs.

This study investigated twelve different SCRAs that were found on the illicit drug market in hopes to better understand their structure, method of action, and physicochemical parameters. In vitro studies showed that these compounds broke down quickly in human plasma and liver metabolites, however in vivo observations showed potential accumulation of the compounds in fatty tissues. Additionally, these lipid-bound compounds may also redistribute back into the circulatory system for further metabolism and activation.
