Does Weed mess with your Penis? The short answer is usually no! At least not if your a responsible moderate cannabis user with no major health issues.





I was told once by a great educator, high school teacher, and personal friend that cannabis usage can lead to declined sexual preformance, a reduced sperm count and even impotence. This idea scared me so I decided to do a little research. what I found was from a blog called Cannabis Marijuna seeds and other passions and it is linked via the title (click on the title).
The short answer was no not really.
The deets below were orginally printed on the blog listed above.

Some say that "heavy smoking decreases sexual capability by damaging the tiny blood vessels in the penis. The use of marijuana and cocaine also can result in impotence.

56 percent of smokers with heart disease were completely impotent compared with only 21 percent of non-smokers with the disease.

A study done at Boston University showed that men who smoked one pack of cigarettes a day for five years were 15 percent more likely to develop clogging in the arteries that serve the penis, a situation that can cause impotence. In addition, heavy smoking decreases sexual capability by damaging the tiny blood vessels in the penis. The use of marijuana and cocaine also can result in impotence.

A recent study at the New England Research Institute in Watertown, Massachusetts, found that impotence was equally common among smokers and non-smokers in general. However, among men with certain health problems, those who smoked were much more likely to have potency problems. For example, 56 percent of smokers with heart disease were completely impotent compared with only 21 percent of non-smokers with the disease.


Alcohol intake decreases the bodys ability to produce testosterone. Research at Chicago Medical School revealed that drinking alcohol may cause the hormonal equivalent of menopause in men. Alcohol not only affects sexual function, but also helps set the stage for a heart attack and other dangerous conditions.

Alcoholism. Excessive alcohol consumption disrupts hormone levels and can lead to nerve damage. This type of impotence may be reversible or permanent depending on the severity of the nerve damage. Some clinical studies suggest about 25 percent of all alcoholics become impotent -- even after they stop drinking."

So in conclusuon Cannabis is relatively safe as long as it is used responsiblyand in moderation. Health Issues such as Heart disease or even a heavy drinking or ciggarette smoking background however can signnificantly increase any small risk of impotence that there may be.
