HU-308 is a drug that acts as a cannabinoid agonist. It is highly selective for the CB2 receptor subtype, with a selectivity of over 5000x for CB2 vs CB1.The synthesis and characterization took place in the laboratory of Prof. Mechoulam at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the late 1990s. It has analgesic effects, promotes proliferation of neural stem cells, and protects both liver and blood vessel tissues against oxidative stress via inhibition of TNF-α.
