Nabitan (Nabutam, Benzopyranoperidine) is a synthetic cannabinoid analog of dronabinol (Marinol).[1] It exhibits antiemetic and analgesic effects, most likely by binding to and activating CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. Nabitan is not currently used in medicine as dronabinol or nabilone are felt to be more useful for most conditions, however it is sometimes used in research into the potential therapeutic applications of cannabinoids.
