2-Isopropyl-5-methyl-1-(2,6-dihydroxy-4-nonylphenyl)cyclohex-1-ene is an analgesic compound which is a cannabinoid agonist. It is a ring-opened cannabinoid derivative, an analogue of cannabidiol. However, unlike cannabidiol, this compound produces potent cannabis-like effects in animals, suggesting it acts as a CB1 agonist.[1]

It can be synthesized by Birch reduction from the nonyl-analog of cannabidiol.[2]
