CB1 receptors, also known as cannabinoid receptor type 1, are a class of cell membrane receptors under the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily that are widely distributed in the brain, with particularly high concentrations in areas associated with cognitive and motor functions, such as the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, hippocampus, and cerebellum. These receptors are also found in other tissues throughout the body, including the liver, adipose tissue, and the reproductive system. CB1 receptors play a pivotal role in the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including mood, appetite, pain sensation, and memory. They are activated by endogenous neurotransmitters known as endocannabinoids, the most notable of which are anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol, as well as by plant-derived cannabinoids, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis. The activation of CB1 receptors can lead to a wide array of effects, including alterations in neurotransmitter release, reduction of pain, decrease in inflammation, and modulation of various metabolic processes. The study of CB1 receptors is significant not only for understanding the basic neurobiological mechanisms underlying these effects but also for the development of therapeutic agents that target these receptors to treat a variety of conditions, such as chronic pain, obesity, neurological disorders, and substance abuse.
