Is this an unmentionable topic?


#1

Ok, I got your interest.

I’m curious about finding a variety that will help with ED.
finding something that has a similar effect to the ED drugs out there.

It seems to be a topic not really talked about.


#2

I’ve never heard of Cannabis being effective for ED but I am no expert. I have the following chart but it is not listed. You are correct I have not heard anyone talk about ED with regards to cannabis. Hopefully some of the more knowledgeable members will weigh in soon. I’ll be watching this thread though.

@phred. I found this article. It’s a bad news/good news article and says there is limited research so that pretty much says it all. If no underlying medical issues it may be a trial and error on what strain helps.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem that plagues millions of men of all ages. We know that smoking cigarettes causes ED, and as marijuana legalization becomes more common, more and more men are asking what effects it can have on their ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Unfortunately, the science is limited and conflicted, making the answer complicated.

First, a disclaimer: don’t do drugs. Also, stay in school. And while we’re at it, call your mother; she worries. But seriously, it’s important to note that marijuana is a drug, and just like alcohol, Tylenol, cocaine or Viagra, it can affect your body in many different ways. If you are going to use any drug, please make sure your doctor knows about it. There are hundreds of prescription medications that can contribute to ED, and being upfront and honest with us is the only way we can help you. And we can usually tell when you’re lying.

As I’ve said before, ED is a medical condition in which a man cannot achieve or sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. It affects a lot of men; up to 39 percent of men experience ED in their 40s, and nearly all men over 70 have some difficulty getting or maintaining an erection. The good news is that ED is usually very responsive to treatment. Conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, low testosterone and obesity contribute to ED, and so do behaviors like tobacco use, and a lack of exercise. By treating these conditions, modifying behavior and/or working to rehabilitate the erectile tissue, we can effectively treat nearly all instances of ED.

I’ll give you the bad news first. Marijuana use has been shown to lower testosterone levels, and low-T can contribute to ED. Marijuana use has also been associated with orgasm-related problems (both premature ejaculation and inability to achieve orgasm). Likewise, a 2010 study published in the Journal European Urology found that marijuana may contribute to ED by inhibiting the nervous system response that causes an erection in the first place.

Now for the good news: like many other conditions, psychology can also play an important role in erectile dysfunction. Men who suffer from ED often get performance anxiety, and this anxiety can make it even harder (pardon the pun) to achieve a sufficient erection. That’s where marijuana comes in. Absent an underlying medical condition, marijuana can help some men relax and overcome their performance anxiety, which can help them achieve an erection.

Because so many factors can contribute to ED, it’s hard to say whether marijuana use will help or hinder an individual’s ability to get and keep an erection. A review of the scientific literature shows that it can have both effects in certain circumstances. There is enough evidence that marijuana can contribute to ED that I recommend against using it as a sexual aid.

Here’s the bottom line: avoiding tobacco and alcohol and maintaining a healthy weight will help prevent ED. Marijuana doesn’t cause ED in the same way as cigarettes, but it can still contribute to the condition.

Many causes of ED are pretty simple to address, but others have serious implications for your health. The only way to know what’s causing ED is to consult your doctor, and when you do, your health (and your sex life) will be better off because of it.

Thank you all for your pretty informative replies.
I think then I will focus on the obvious causes for ED.

  1. Diabetes
  2. Overweight.

I do not actually smoke, some might say, what the heck are you on this site for ?
Whilst I don’t smoke, I will use CBD or even Hybrids for oils. and maybe if it’s the best method of administering, a Vape unit.

I guess i’m opening up a lot further discussion but isn’t that the purpose of forums, to share.
Feel free to let me know if these have been covered elsewhere, I’ll hunt further.

So I guess I’m now looking for a strain that will reduce blood sugar, maybe cholesterol, and diminish appetite. (is this a “holy grail”?

So i’m now waiting for a special delivery from ILGM to get me going.
then maybe i’ll have to try some other hybrids.
Again choices choices choices.
happy to listen to guidance
I have the following in my shopping cart, thinking of ordering some/all

  • Grand Daddy Purple (fem)
  • Super Silver Haze (fem)
  • Jack Herer Autoflower
  • Blue Haze (fem)
  • White Widow (fem)

if you need something for being overweight,diabetes try something with an high THC-V cannabanoid …


#10

So far I haven’t found a strain that doesn’t help with glucose problems. My a1c was 8.5 before. Took about 6 months of use daily before the number went down. After about a year I got off the diabetic list. My diabetes was caused by a different medication and weight.
I also do not get the “munchies”. Ive lost over half my body weight since starting to smoke. Some of that is activity level gone up, but not like I started working out it anything.


#11

@soniclos

I use for my anxiety / depression and gastrointestinal issues. However, since I have started using just over a year ago I have gained weight. I get the munchies so bad I’m eating peanut butter and Nutella by the spoonful.

What strains are you using that do not give you the munchies?


#12

yes, @HJL i would love to know this secret…lol


#13

@HJL @BIGE no secrets, for me it’s all strains.

The effects that others quote from each strain I have never “felt”, I just get a general happier feeling and a calming of the pain that racks my body 24x7. Then again I only know dispensary weed, while I have been learning a ton over the last few years, I still can’t feel the difference in the strains on display. Now for sure I get more potent stuff at times, but other than smell, look, flavor, I don’t notice any specific strain helps more or less for any of my issues.

I never got into the black market, and probably would still be in the “mari is BS CLUB” if I hadn’t gotten sick and been at the end before I tried it.

Wish it was a secret I could share, but I know I’m not the only one that has lost ton of weight after smoking, at least if you believe the internet.

@soniclos what strain was this? CBD or thc or mix of both? I’m trying to find something that’ll help bring down my a1c, it’s 8.3 and every medication the doctor has given me has caused kidney problems and made me so sick… I’m on insulin right now and nothing else but doing a high protein/veg diet… it seems to not be helping… gained 30 lbs after being put on insulin and just found out I lost 18 lbs but it’s because I didn’t have my insulin for a month which made me really sick… I’d rather do something natural than have to jab myself every day.
