A new synthetic drug has been wreaking havoc in Charleston, West Virginia: within a two-day period last week, eight people in the city reportedly overdosed and were hospitalized, thanks to a substance known as AM 2201. Originally thought to be a form of crack cocaine, AM 2201 is actually a synthetic cannabinoid that’s been used used to coat the potpourri sold as synthetic marijuana.

AM2201 (Item No. 10707) is an aminoalkylindole cannabinoid (CB) with Ki values of 1.0 and 2.6 nM for the central CB1 and peripheral CB2 receptors, respectively. AM2201 benzimidazole analog is characterized by the replacement of the indole moiety of AM2201 with benzimidazole. While the physiological and toxicological properties of this compound have not been evaluated, other benzimidazole CBs demonstrate high selectivity for the CB2 receptor. This product is intended for forensic and research applications.
