Is vaporizing or smoking Marijuana bad for erectile dysfunction?

Posted on Tue, 7 Jun 2016 in Mental Health
Question: I'm 31 years old, a heavy cannabis smoker (with a medical liscense) for PTSD. I had suffered from impotency for quite some time (I believe due to excessive drinking, cocaine, cannabis smoking and stress) eventually my mother passed away and my problems became worse than ever. I'm not overweight.

In past year I have cut out everything except marijuana, have a very solid diet, lots of excercise, it seems my impotency problem is greatly reduced. my blood pressure is almost always very low like 80/120 or less.

i'm wondering if vaporizing marijuna will be less harmful to me than smoking it? in terms of blood circulation and impotency issues. and what else i could do to furthur improve my situation? i'm not getting decent erections again (without viagra) and taking supplements like these:

Im also curious if this supplement is good to take long term, will it overall improve my situation, or is it just a short term fix that I might want to take just before I was going to have sex...

Brief Answer:
The supplement is not a short term solution.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for asking from HCM

Vaporising marijuana and smoking marijuana both will cause almost equal harm in terms of potency. But vaporisation is relatively safer in my opinion for health. I'd advise you to stop using marijuana because this would cause lack of motivation, poor libido etc serious side effects. The drug can precipitate acute psychosis also.

The supplement you've mentioned is most probably TestoJack 200 and is supposed to be a testosterone booster and increases libido. The supplement doesn't cause immediate effects but acts by increasing libido after regular use. The supplement is safe and has actions different than Viagra. You can continue to use it without any worries. This will improve your complaints and is not a short term fix. For persistent low libido you can use yohimbin supplements also which have great effects.

Thanks, Hope this helps you. Please don't hesitate to ask again for more doubts.

Take care

Brief Answer:
You can take Yohimbin also.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again

As its a supplement so exact dose has not been properly defined. But the supplement can be taken 1-2 caps 2-3 times a day and if you use consistently the drug will help you.

Yes you can take yohimbin also and the drug will also help.
