Activation of cannabinoid CB2 receptors protects against various forms of ischaemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Delta(8)-Tetrahydrocannabivarin (Delta(8)-THCV) is a synthetic analogue of the plant cannabinoid Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabivarin, which exhibits anti-inflammatory effects in rodents involving activation of CB2 receptors. Here, we assessed effects of Delta(8)-THCV and its metabolite 11-OH-Delta(8)-THCV on CB2 receptors and against hepatic I/R injury.
