Hormones, Sex and Cannabis
Dr. Jenny Wilkins, NMD, CRA, PharmD Candidate, AgeVital Pharmacy
Cannabis affects a variety of hormones that are regulated by hypothalamic function and it appears that the psychoactive ingredient, THC, is the major compound responsible for this action. It is probable that THC affects these hormones through its ability to alter various neural transmitters in the hypothalamus or neural transmitters in the CNS which impinge on the hypothalamus. Dr. Jenny discusses mechanism of action and what the research shows about how cannabis affects, sex and hormones.
