In order to establish the structural requirements for binding to the brain cannabinoid receptor (CB1), we have synthesized numerous fatty acid amides, ethanolamides, and some related simple derivatives and have determined their Ki values. A few alpha-methyl- or alpha, alpha-dimethylarachidonoylalkylamides...
