Sex Hormones Levels as Influenced by Cannabis sativa in Rats and Men
Amna H. Mukhtar, Nabiela M. Elbagir and Abdulrahim A. Gubara

Abstract:
This study targeted the possible effects of chronic marijuana use on reproductive hormones. To pursue this effect, the levels of the testosterone, the Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and the Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) were assayed in men users in Sudan and in Cannabis sativa extract treated rats. Results were compared to non using groups as controls. Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and testosterone levels showed significant changes after 10 days in rat groups. In all addicted men groups, only slight non significant changes were observed compared to non users. These findings supported previous studies and concluded that C. sativa can significantly influence the levels of sex hormones in rats.
