Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): epitope
The biological role played by a material entity when bound by a receptor of the adaptive immune system. Specific site on an antigen to which an antibody binds.
Any intermediate or product resulting from metabolism. The term 'metabolite' subsumes the classes commonly known as primary and secondary metabolites.
(via phytocannabinoid )
non-narcotic analgesic
A drug that has principally analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. Non-narcotic analgesics do not bind to opioid receptors.
cannabinoid receptor agonist
An agonist that binds to and activates cannabinoid receptors.
(via cannabinoid )
Application(s): non-narcotic analgesic
A drug that has principally analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. Non-narcotic analgesics do not bind to opioid receptors.
Drugs capable of inducing illusions, hallucinations, delusions, paranoid ideations and other alterations of mood and thinking.
