2017 Study: Cannabis users have significantly higher sexual frequency.

A 2017 study by Department of Urology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA found that cannabis users have a lot more sex than non users.  This was a population study, meaning that surveys were used to collect and ascertain data.  The aim of the study was to to clarify whether a relation between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists using a nationally representative sample of reproductive-age men and women.  

A clear association between use and frequency.

The results of the study showed that there was a "significantly higher" rate of sexual frequency in both men and women who used cannabis compared to those who did not at all.  The results of the study were clear and researchers came away knowing that further, clinical research was needed to confirm.  As this was a population study, certain limitations existed.  Here is an excerpt from the study:

Our study used a large well-controlled cohort and clearly defined end points to describe a novel association between marijuana use and sexual frequency. However, survey responses were self-reported and represent participants only at a specific point in time. Participants who did not answer questions related to marijuana use and sexual frequency were excluded.  

A positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency is seen in men and women across all demographic groups. Although reassuring, the effects of marijuana use on sexual function warrant further study.

Clinical Implications and Conclusion:

Researches came away from the study with the notion that marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear to impair sexual function.  Here is the conclusion from the study:

A positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency is seen in men and women across all demographic groups. Although reassuring, the effects of marijuana use on sexual function warrant further study.

Another benefit of cannabis use.

Study after study are being conducted on cannabis in these exciting times and the results are consistently positive and encouraging.  This study, while obscure, shows an obvious correlation between cannabis use and sexual frequency.  This could be exactly what a struggling marriage or relationship needs to heal and flourish again.  Stay tuned everyone because there will be more good news about cannabis to come.
