Cannabis, CBD and Impaired Movement
Impaired movement, lack of coordination, clumsy balance, and jerky and unsteady movements can occur when there’s a disruption in communication between the brain and the rest of the body. Some cannabis users report these feelings. When using cannabis doctors can be unaware of the latest information – we’re trying to provide answers you need.
What is known about cannabis, CBD and impaired movement
Cortico-striatal networks are neural circuits in the brain, and they are essential for producing movement as well as motor learning and control.
According to a study, exposure to cannabis has significant effects on cortico-striatal networks.
There are some users who value some of what this side effect offers. They enjoy the relaxing, stress-reducing, calming “couch-lock” that can occur. Some people think products made from indica strains are more likely to produce these effects, while sativa strains are more likely to be energizing. But there isn’t a lot of data to support those claims yet.
CBD does not seem to cause impaired movement.
