JWH-098 is a synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonist from the naphthoylindole family. It is the indole 2-methyl derivative of a closely related compound JWH-081, but has markedly different affinity for the CB1 and CB2 receptors. While JWH-081 is around 10x selective for CB1 over CB2, in JWH-098 this is reversed, and it is around 4 times weaker than JWH-081 at CB1 while being six times more potent at CB2, giving it a slight selectivity for CB2 overall. This makes JWH-098 a good example of how methylation of the indole 2-position in the naphthoylindole series tends to increase CB2 affinity, but often at the expense of CB1 binding.[1] JWH-098 is illegal in Russia,[2] Sweden,[3] and the UK,[4] although it is unclear whether it has any history of human use.
