FUB-AKB48 belongs to the synthetic cannabinoids family, which is a very diverse group of research chemicals, featuring many distinct families. Indazole-based substances are one of the classes of cannabinoids most suitable for systematic research. Indazole-based substances are characterized by a strong affinity for cannabinoid receptors, and their highly reliable behavior under lab conditions.
FUB-AKB48 is one of the latest products of the indazole family to become available on research chemical websites, and is getting a lot of interest. This research chemical is closely related to APINACA and 5F-APINACA, but has some slight structural changes in the form of a 4-fluorobenzyl group, which is substituted in place of a pentyl chain. The molecule contains an adamantyl-carboxamide moiety, and resembles a well known cannabinoid JWH-018 (which acts as a dominant agonist of the peripheral CB2 receptors), but due to presence of fluorobenzyl group, FUB-AKB48 is expected to display significant impact on CB1 as well.
