There are many controversial comments that have been made in the United States about the medicinal use or restriction of marijuana. However, a study conducted by Dr. Michael Eisenberg, an assistant professor of urology, sees patients with poor sexual performance at the Stanford University Medical Center, all to determine the cause of the problem. The question is whether they have to smoke less marijuana.
Eisenberg considers that it is time to explore in the country, plus the use of the medicinal plant. According to the study, the findings surprised.
“Normally, people assume that the more they smoke, the worse they will perform in bed, but we have discovered that it is the opposite,” says Eisenberg. His research was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine this week.
The study analyzed information from the National Survey of Family Growth of the US government, which asked more than 28,000 women and almost 23,000 men how often they had had sex in the four weeks prior to the survey and how often they had had sex. smoked marijuana during the last year.
Women who did not use marijuana reported having had sex six times, on average, during the previous four weeks. Those who smoked marijuana daily, on average, had sex 7.1 times in the same time period.
The trend was very similar in the case of men. Those who are not marijuana users reported having, on average, 5.6 sexual encounters during the four weeks prior to the survey, compared to 6.9 sexual encounters that average men had who smoke marijuana every day.
“(The study) was done in all areas: regardless of marital status, race,” Eisenberg said. The research focused on heterosexual sex and did not explain why there may be a connection between sex and marijuana.
Eisenberg says previous research with humans and rodents has shown that marijuana can increase arousal. However, there are studies that have also shown that too much marijuana can decrease the amount of sperm, and although men may feel more desire to have sex, orgasm can be a challenge.
It should be noted that using too much marijuana can have side effects on health. Making you more vulnerable to a heart attack, irritating the lungs, how to increase heart rate is part of what has thrown the investigations.
