Sexual Problems Linked to Heavier Marijuana Use

Marijuana can have hundreds of ingredients and preparations vary. But the key to understanding the effects of marijuana is found in cannabinoids, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These chemicals bind to cannabinoid receptors in the body. It’s this binding that leads to marijuana’s “high” feeling. An individual’s experience with marijuana will depend on what’s in the mixture.
