In most conversations on how health and lifestyle trends impact sexual patterns, the subject of marijuana will always come up. Just like tobacco, many people assume that marijuana would have no or negative effect on sexual function. However, a study conducted by researchers at Stanford University indicated that individuals who use marijuana have 20 percent more sex drive than those who abstain from the drug. The research involved 50,000 reproductive-aged Americans from both sexes and races, ages, income groups, education levels, religions and different health status. Michael Eisenberg, the senior author of the research, said that the sexual impact depends on the frequency of the drug use. Check the journal at SCImago Journal & Country Rank.
As more states legalize marijuana drug for medical or recreational use, many Americans are likely to consume the drug. Recently, Gallup poll indicated that one out of eight Americans use marijuana while 45 percent have tried it at least once. However, Eisenberg notes that the study does not necessarily mean that the drug causes users to have more sex; it only means that it stimulates arousal pathways.
