Sexual Problems Linked to Heavier Marijuana Use

Research also suggests that people who use marijuana have sex more frequently than those who don’t.

However, marijuana can have negative effects on a man’s sex life, too. Some of the more commonly reported problems include the following:

  • Low desire
  • Problems getting an erection
  • Weak erections
  • Trouble reaching orgasm
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Poor judgment
  • Unsafe sex

Experts say that heavier marijuana users are more likely to have sexual issues than those who use small amounts every once in a while.

Still, people who feel that their marijuana use is causing sexual problems (or becoming excessive in general) are encouraged to talk to their healthcare provider.
