Many studies have established a relationship between marijuana and erectile dysfunction or impotence. But marijuana does not have a direct influence on erectile dysfunction. Rather, it’s the effects that marijuana has on the brain that increases the risks of the exasperating and depilating sexual problem called impotence.
It should be mentioned that this refers to smoking cannabis. Other forms of consumption like vaporization are much “healthier”.
Many people smoke marijuana as it leaves them mentally feeling all good and pleasant. Every time they smoke marijuana, the levels of the inflammatory hormones in the body such as the prostaglandin E-2increases. Though these hormones help in relaxing the muscles of the body, an excessive production of them can cause serious inflammation in the body. Therefore, consumption of marijuana beyond the right dosage leads to the arteries becoming constricted. The arteries play a crucial role in erections, and the inability of the arteries in pumping enough blood to the necessary areas results in erectile dysfunction..
In conclusion, there is no direct relationship between impotence and cannabis use.
