Is There a Link Between Marijuana Use and Erectile Dysfunction?

Understanding Some of the More Unusual Causes of ED.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Dallas TXMen seeking erectile dysfunction treatment in Dallas, TX, may be interested to know that new studies have found a link between marijuana use and ED!

Cannabis, or at least the active ingredients in cannabis, have been found to have several curative or medicinal properties sparking a boom in the use of “medical marijuana.”

However, with all the conditions that using marijuana seems to be good for; unfortunately, ED is not one of them. Recent studies suggest that men in Dallas should know that cannabis products may even cause ED.

While the high caused by THC — the active ingredient in marijuana — can lead to a euphoria that could enhance sexual desire, a 2019 study found that “Cannabinoid receptors at the level of both the brain and penis may negatively impact erectile function, possibly leading to difficulties achieving and maintaining an erection….”

Dallas area men suffering from ED need to understand the link between marijuana and your ability to get and maintain an erection.

Factors that increase the risk of developing Erectile Dysfunction.

At our Dallas area men’s health clinic, we understand that ED is a complex issue that can be caused by many factors – some men can control and some cannot. In addition to excessive use of cannabis, other lifestyle factors known to cause or increase your risk of developing ED include:

Smoking of all sorts, not only marijuana but tobacco and vaping products.

  • A diet high in fat, sugar, and junk foods
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Obesity
  • Low testosterone
  • Lower than normal growth hormone levels
  • Other hormone imbalances

The studies that linked marijuana to ED also found that long-term cannabis use could lead to low sperm count and impact fertility. So, if you are a man in Dallas and want to maintain a healthy and active sex life, and particularly if you want to be a dad, you should cut back on marijuana use and avoid the other behaviors listed above.
