Apparently Weed Smokers Have More Sex Than The Rest of The Population

Eisenberg told CNN that if a patient asks whether frequent marijuana use is getting in the way of his or her sex life, he will tell them that "it may not be the culprit". Regular weed smokers reportedly engage in sex more frequently in comparison to those who abstain.

Researchers questioned more than 50,000 people aged 25 to 45. Among men, daily cannabis users reported having sex an average of 6.9 times in the last four weeks, compared to 5.6 for non-users.

"The overall trend we saw applied to people of both sexes and all races, ages, education levels, income groups and religions, every health status, whether they were married or single and whether or not they had kids". When the majority of Americans have said they've smoked marijuana at least once, the more they can know about all aspects of how the drug affects their bodies, the better.

With cannabis becoming legal in more USA states and more countries around the world, there is not a lot of time to conduct all the necessary research before rolling.

Cannabis consumers are having 20% more sex than cannabis abstainers.

That seems to indicate that the association can't be explained away by saying that people with fewer inhibitions are likely to both smoke pot and frequently engage in sex, Eisenberg said. "[In] pretty much every group we studied, this pattern persisted", Eisenberg said.


"There are arousal pathways that are stimulated by marijuana that could explain the results", he said, "but for this study, it's important to know that correlation does not mean causation".

Previous studies have shown that heavy abuse of the drug can reduce male sperm count and cause erectile dysfunction.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sponsors the survey. The survey, which provides data pertaining to family structures, sexual practices and childbearing, reflects the overall demographic features of the USA population. About 24.5 percent of men and 14.5 percent of women reported having used marijuana. Meanwhile, women who consumed marijuana daily reported an average of 7.1 sexual episodes over the same period. It contains explicit questions about intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks, as well as the frequency of smoking marijuana in the previous 12 months.

Eisenberg also pointed out that the positive association between cannabis use and coital frequency was not dependent on other factors, including the use of other drugs like cocaine and alcohol.

But at the end of it, Eisenberg still cautioned that the study was not proof of their being a causal link, strong as the hints maybe.

A 2003 study also found that over half of marijuana users said the drug was a libido-booster, compared to 26 percent who said it inhibited their sex drive.
