Arvanil is a cannabinoid CB1 and VR1 (vanilloid TRPV1) agonist (Ki values are 0.5 and 0.3 μM respectively). Arvanil as a vanilloid analog is 100-fold more potent than Anandamide in producing hypothermia, catalepsy and inhibiting spontaneous activity when administered to mice. Arvanil also inhibits the anandamide transporter (IC50 = 3.6 μM). Furthermore, Arvanil is reported to induce apoptosis. Arvanil is an inhibitor of FAAH.
