Unlike natural cannabinoids which belong to the 6aR - trans series, the synthetic dexanabinol (HU-211), a 6aS-trans enantiomer, does not have affinity toward cannabinoid receptors and is devoid of cannabimimetic activity. On the other hand, dexanabinol demonstrated significant neuroprotective properties which prompted its development as a therapeutic agent. We now present the extension of a series of 6aS-trans cannabinoids with novel derivatives, including water soluble derivatives and congeners of dexanabinol.
