It is a synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonist (SCRA) with an aminoalkylindazole structure used as an active ingredient of products sold as cannabis substitutes.
This product has some known therapeutic or medical use. In different regions it is being used for different purposes. Furthermore, some countries have put AB-CHMINACA under national control.
When smoked, it produces cannabimimetic effects like Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol(THC). Doses needed to produce these effects are much lower than for THC.
