Cannabinoid type 2 (CB2) receptor agonists can protect myocardium against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury although the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here we report the antiapoptotic effect of CB2 receptor agonist, JWH133, during myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury and potential underlying mechanisms.
