JWH-030 is a research chemical which is a cannabinoid receptor agonist.[1] It has analgesic effects and is used in scientific research.[2] It is a partial agonist at CB1 receptors, with a Ki of 87nM, making it roughly half the potency of THC.[3] It was discovered and named after Dr. John W. Huffman.
