This gene encodes one of two cannabinoid receptors. The cannabinoids principally delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and synthetic analogs are psychoactive ingredients of marijuana. The cannabinoid receptors are members of the guanine-nucleotide-binding protein (G-protein) coupled receptor family which inhibit adenylate cyclase activity in a dose-dependent stereoselective and pertussis toxin-sensitive manner. The two receptors have been found to be involved in the cannabinoid-induced CNS effects (including alterations in mood and cognition) experienced by users of marijuana. Multiple transcript variants encoding two different protein isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq May 2009]
