Drug Strain Gross Phenotypes Drug strains are characterized by Delta1-THC as the primary cannabinoid, with low levels of other accessory cannabinoids such as THCV, CBD, CBC, and CBN. Page and his colleagues have already used the new enzymes to coax yeast to produce olivetolic acid, a key metabolic intermediate on the biochemical pathway that leads to cannabinoids. Manipulating the endocannabinoid system by pre- and/or postnatal administration of cannabinoids or maternal marijuana consumption has significant, yet subtle effects on the offspring.
The consumption of externally supplied cannabinoids is known to affect sperm motility by interrupting the ability of sperm to move properly toward an egg. A large amount of experimental data have clearly shown that cannabinoids negatively influence important sperm functions, including motility , capacitation and acrosome reaction, three fundamental processes necessary for oocyte penetration. Exogenous cannabinoids substances consumed from outside the body, interfere with the body’s natural processes because they exert negative effects on reproduction by reducing LH secretion and suppressing gonadal function.
