A new, dangerous marijuana trend
Adding to the concerns, Dr Rita Bakshi, chairperson at International Fertility Center, shares, “The high concentration marijuana molecules work as a catalyst in the process of damaging both egg and sperm. Dabbing causes a sudden spurt in one’s sex hormone, especially after 20 minutes and an increase which is six times the normal hormones, followed by sudden dips. Thus, causing random variations along with changing the shape and size of the sperm. “In Jamaica almost the whole population consumes cannabis but studies have shown that their fertility doesn’t get affected. While on the other hand, studies based on small groups in India have pointed towards problems in fertility due to consuming cannabis as it deprives one of oxygen along with releasing harmful substances,” adds Bakshi.
