AM-2201 is a potent synthetic cannabinoid (CB) with Ki values of 1.0 and 2.6 nM for the CB1 and CB2 receptors, respectively. AM-2201 acts as a potent but nonselective full agonist for the cannabinoid receptor. The physiological actions and metabolism of AM2201 have not been characterized.
|Source||Drug Alcohol Depend (2017). Figure 2. AM2201|
|Concentrations||0.1 – 0.3 mg/kg|
|Incubation Time||3 h|
|Results||THC and XLR-11 were the least potent of the cannabinoids, while CP55,940 was the most potent. JWH-018 and AM2201 had comparable potency at increasing BP and were intermediate between CP55,940 and THC.|

|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
