Weed smokers are often stereotyped as being lethargic, unmotivated, and more likely to be Netflix and chilling on a Friday night than out on the dance floor.
A comprehensive new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine has founded that contrary to the popular belief that regular marijuana use impairs sexual motivation and performance, the opposite seems to be true.
With marijuana becoming legal in more states, Dr. Michael Eisenberg, an assistant professor of urology, wanted to see if there was a correlation between smoking marijuana and sexual activity.
Given that the average couple has sex about once a week, Dr Eisenberg said, the bottom line for partaking in a bong or blunt could add up to 20 more instances of sexual intercourse each year.
Yet another research from 13 years ago found beneficial properties of CBD for reducing neurotoxicity in the brain which makes cells die significantly faster. If anything, it's associated with increased coital frequency'.
But a new study claimed that not only does the average person who smokes marijuana regularly have a healthy amount of sex, they actually may have more sex than the average person who does not.
The findings applied to people of all races, ages, education and income levels, religions, every health status, marital status and whether they had children.
The researchers conducted a retrospective analysis of data on 50,000 Americans between the ages of 25 and 45 compiled by the National Survey of Family Growth between 2002 and 2015.
The study focused on heterosexual sex and did not explain why there might be a connection between sex and marijuana, CNN reported.
Similarly, men who used marijuana daily reported having sex with a woman 6.9 times per month, compared to 5.6 times for nonusers. The survey, which provides data pertaining to family structures, sexual practices and childbearing, reflects the overall demographic features of the USA population.
The researchers found that the volunteers who had smoked marijuana were the ones who were more sexually active.
The survey had also asked the participants how frequently they had engaged in sex with a partner from the opposite gender in the past month.
However, Eisenberg stressed that the study does not prove a causal link. Therefore, the study has suggested that the finding does not imply that people who are less inhibited have more sex or use drugs.
