Opioids And Cannabinoids Influence Mobility Of Spermatozoids

Opioids And Cannabinoids Influence Mobility Of Spermatozoids

Ok, since I've been posting articles about how cannabinoids effect fertility and sperm motility, i thought I'd post this one too, about how both cannabinoids and opioids effect fertility.

An excerpt:
A PhD thesis from the University of the Basque Country has concluded that there are opioid and cannabinoid receptors in human sperm and that these influence the mobility of spermatozoid. The research by Mr Ekaitz Agirregoitia opens the door to more effective treatment of fertility problems.

Freshly released spermatozoids cannot achieve fertilisation, they must undergo some changes for this to occur. Amongst other, such changes take place due to receptors situated in the plasmatic membrane (the layer covering the cells) and opioid and cannabinoid receptors are two of these. On coming into contact with these, physiological reactions are generated in the body...
Wow... who knew... so I guess the gist of this is, if you want your puppies to swim happily, get them high, but not too high...

  10. @relapse - drugs are drugs because of the way they affect the receptors.


    It's not that the receptors are there for the drugs.
