FUB-APINACA (also known as AFUBINACA and FUB-AKB48) is an indazole-based synthetic cannabinoid that is presumed to be a potent agonist of the CB1 receptor and has been sold online as a designer drug.[1] It is an analog of APINACA and 5F-APINACA where the pentyl chain has been replaced with fluorobenzyl.

Pharmacology[edit]

FUB-APINACA acts as a full agonist with a binding affinity of 1.06 nM at CB1 and 0.174 nM at CB2 cannabinoid receptors.[2]

Legal status[edit]

In the United States, FUB-APINACA became a Schedule I Controlled Substance in 2019.[3] Previously, it was illegal only in Alabama (listed as FUB-AKB48).[4]

Sweden's public health agency suggested classifying FUB-APINACA as a hazardous substance on November 10, 2014.[5]
