Marijuana & Erectile Dysfunction Des Moines

Many men suffering from erectile dysfunction in Des Moines have had a history of marijuana consumption. Most men had not stopped smoking the weed even after impotency had set in. The correlation between marijuana and erectile dysfunction has scientific reasoning.

THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the active ingredient in marijuana. THC has the ability to interact with the brain proteins known as cannabinoid receptors. The cannabinoid receptors are also found in the tissues of the penis.

It blocks off the much needed sensory exchanges between the penis and the receptors in the brain.
