What Does Marijuana Do To A Boner?

There's a lot of mixed messages out there on the interwebs

Have you ever wondered, somewhere in the back of your mind (minimized to a tiny voice so as not to freak yourself out) whether the weed you smoke affects your erection?

Yeah, we all have. At least those equipped to get erections have.

And it’s no wonder. The internet is full of anecdotal descriptions of marijuana-triggered erections, something Urban Dictionary contributors call “stoner boner.” To quote the entry, this is “an erection obtained for no reason other than the fact that the obtainee was too damn high.” (Let’s face it. That’s way better than whisky dick.)

And there is maybe even more content out there about how marijuana impedes the boner. So, what’s real?

As far as we can tell, you can rest easy, brother. The facts about weed use and erections are uncertain at best, with one investigation suggesting that frequent cannabis use caused the men in their study to reach orgasm too quickly, too slowly, or not at all.

And then there’s this other study, which suggests that cannabis could be used to treat erectile difficulties in men with high cholesterol.

In short? The jury is still out. If you’re concerned about how marijuana affects your bedroom presence, try out some different strains and consumption methods. It’s certainly more fun that way,¬†¬†and you can see how each one affects your desire and ability to perform. Bring on the boner!
