There is no doubt that cannabis is the most popularly smoked drug in the world, and in most cases, is used by younger people not realizing that it is affecting their sexual health and performance in a hazardous manner.
According to a recent review of extensive medical research that was conducted in this area by Dr. Rany Shamloul, a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, and based on new research that has been conducted off late, it has been confirmed that cannabis affects certain receptors in the brain, and off late, in the penis as well.
This means that cannabis has an aggravating effect on the penis, thus lowering one’s ability to get an erection, and these new results that have been gleaned from recent animal and in vitro studies, changes all previous assumptions about the effect of cannabis on one’s sexual health.
Not surprisingly, these recent studies have put to rest the controversies that have been a part of several similar studies, where some of them have indicated that cannabis does not affect sexual dysfunction but actually improves it whereas other studies have observed the opposite.
While the conflicting studies have left the medical community a bit divided, the aforementioned tests have indeed put to rest the fact that there exists a negative connection between one’s sexual health and the drug popularly known as cannabis.
