The Endocannabinoid System and Motor Control

Published

on

The body is extraordinarily complex on a number of different levels. That complexity doesn’t stop with simply the complexity of structure. In fact some of the most dramatic complexity arises from how structure is utilized by the functioning of systemic processes.

One such systemic process that has baffled scientists for hundreds of years is motor control. This field of research has now extended to integrate research into the important role played by the endocannabinoid system.

Understanding Motor Control

Motor control refers to the cortical component in the brain-body relationship, whereby neurons activate in a sequence that controls the movement by voluntary process of the outer extremities of the body as well as the body’s chassis.

In effect, it is the control system that provides for voluntary coordination and movement of the skeletomuscular system.

But this isn’t just about the process of activating a movement. It also includes the thoughts behind the decision to make that movement and the perceptual input that gives rise to those thoughts.

In many cases, in fact, the movement is only partially voluntary, with instinctive responses contributing to the control process based on effectively automatic responses to incoming perceptual data.

In other words, if you’re driving down the road and someone swerves in front of you, you will find that your foot is on the brake pedal far before you ever realize what’s happening on a conscious level.

For all of this to come together in a productive manner, many aspects of the brain need to be working together in a synchronized manner. This includes major roles for different areas of the brain including the frontal lobe, the motor cortex, the cerebellum, and the basal ganglia.

Hence, the process of motor control incorporates our sensory perception, our decision-making, our memories, and our instinctive responses, and coordinates them all with the motor system of the brain, which more directly controls the nerves responsible for causing muscles to fire, thus driving movements in the body and limbs.

The Endocannabinoid System and Motor Control

One of the most important areas of the brain that implicates the significance of the endocannabinoid system in motor control is the basal ganglia.

The basal ganglia represents a grouping of structural components that are intimately linked with the thalamus, a structure located in the base of the brain. Essentially, we’re talking about a giant bundle of nerves where the body meets the brain that are integral to the coordination of movements in the body.

At this point, research has indicated that the endocannabinoid system plays a role in the process of motor control due to a high density of endocannabinoid receptors that are located in both the basal ganglia and the cerebellum.

This has led to the assumption that there must be a purpose to this high density of receptors. One theory at this point is that they provide protection and alleviation for motor symptoms and neurons that act to battle against a number of neurological problems.

This is evidenced by the important role played by cannabinoids in Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and multiple sclerosis.

The big point to make here is this: an ineffective endocannabinoid system is thought to worsen problems of motor control. Therefore, by deduction, the use of cannabinoids such as CBD to improved deficiencies of the endocannabinoid system should be able to aid in benefiting individuals with their motor control.

While additional research is necessary, it would appear as though sufficient evidence is in place to suggest the benefits of investment in such research, and the potential for that research to yield insights into how CBD may play an important role in various disorders of the motor control system.

Published

on

BRANDED LEGACY (OTCMKTS: BLEG) recognizes the contribution of California High Beverages to its business, pointing to the distribution partner as the one that has placed the largest order so far. The close collaboration between Elev8 Hemp and the California High Beverages will make it possible to serve customers with the CBD Infused Iced Teas as soon as possible.

The Covid-19 impact on business

 It admits that the outbreak of the Covid-19 affected most businesses, but it is impressed with the massive growth that the distribution partners experienced. For instance, California High Beverages ordered the Elev8 Hemp CBD Infused Iced Teas in massive amounts. Reports show that order as being six times larger than the previous order. In addition, the splitting of the order will be such that it will go to three different territories, namely Texas, California, and Illinois.

The CEO of California High Beverages, Mike Dub, opines, “We anticipate putting Elev8 Hemp in at least 200 retail accounts by the end of the summer. We have already placed them coast to coast in about 50 accounts, and they have been well received with many reorders placed. We look forward working with Elev8 Hemp to further this brand’s presence across the USA!”

Nichols speaks out

Vice President of Branded Legacy Matthew Nichols applauds California High Beverages for the efforts it has been making towards the expansion of its reach. He is pretty impressed with how they have been cooperating all along and the outcomes of their efforts. But, of course, the retail outlets on a nationwide scale have been the main recipients of the efforts considering the easy access to products. As a result, the sales have grown massively, which has always been the aim right from the start.

Elev8 Hemp puts customers first, and that is why it wants to continue channeling resources to ensure that they enjoy top-quality organic hemp products. The customers will enjoy many healthy proteins that will give them a great feeling and make them feel more energetic.
