Brief Answer:
Single incidence of ED has no significance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have attempted to have a sex with virgin but could not get hard erection to penetrate her vagina.You attribute this to your habit of taking Marijuana.

Single incidence of ED has no significance and difficult to predict this to be due to Marijuana.Mostly It could be due to performance anxiety..

Following measure will help you to boost up your confidence and getting good erection.and delay ejaculation.
1) Practice regular exercise for 45 minutes followed by meditation for 1/2 an hour in the morning.
2) Take high protein diet rich in vegetables and fruits and Vitamin A,C,D,E.and Zinc
3)Take anti oxidants like Almonds 5-6 everyday..
4) Avoid alcohol and smoking..

If problem persists or you face the similar situation in future you will need to consult qualified Urologist or Sexologist for detail evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
