- A very important protein in the body’s endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS). CB1 is the main target of delta-9-THC, the main intoxicating ingredient in cannabis. THC is an agonist, or activator of the CB1. THC must bind to the CB1 receptor for a person to feel the cannabinoid’s intoxicating effects.
