JWH-309 (naphthalen-1-yl-(5-naphthalen-1-yl-1-pentylpyrrol-3-yl)methanone) is a synthetic cannabinoid from the naphthoylpyrrole family which acts as an agonist of the CB1 (Ki = 41 ± 3nM) and CB2 (Ki = 49 ± 7nM) receptors, displaying a slight selectivity for the former. JWH-309 was first synthesized in 2006 by John W. Huffman and colleagues to examine the nature of ligand binding to the CB1 receptor.
In Canada, JWH-309 and other naphthoylpyrrole-based cannabinoids are Schedule II controlled substances under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
In the United Kingdom, JWH-309 and other naphthoylpyrrole-based cannabinoids are considered Class B drugs under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
