Marinol Marinol is the generic name for Dronabinol. Dronabinol is the common name for the active ingredient in Marinol. Essentially, synthetic THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol which is a naturally occurring component of Cannabis sativa L.


Marinol a.k.a. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or more precisely its main isomer-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the principal psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant. First isolated in 1964 by Israeli scientists Raphael Mechoulam and Yechiel Gaoni at the Weizmann Institute of Science it is a water-clear glassy solid when cold, which becomes viscous and sticky if warmed. A pharmaceutical formulation of-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, known by its INN dronabinol, is available by prescription in the U.S. and Canada under the brand name Marinol. An aromatic terpenoid, THC has a very low solubility in water, but good solubility in most organic solvents, specifically lipids and alcohols. THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and about 80 other molecules make up the phytocannabinoid family.
