Olorinab (APD371) is an oral, peripherally acting, highly selective, full agonist of the cannabinoid type 2 receptor (CB2). Olorinab is an internally discovered investigational drug candidate that Arena is exploring for development in several indications, with an initial focus on visceral pain in gastrointestinal disorders. This compound, through its selectivity for CB2, versus the cannabinoid type 1 receptor (CB1), was designed to provide pain relief while minimizing the risk of psychoactive adverse effects.
