For those who want to use cannabis but fear it could interfere with chances of conception can now rest assured. A study out of Boston University School of Public Health analyzed the link between cannabis use and fertility, and found it does not lower the chances of conceiving for neither men nor women. In the study, researchers used surveys to measure fecundability in approximately 4,000 women between the ages of 21 and 45 who were in stable relationships and did not use contraception or fertility treatments. Additionally, 1,000 of their male partners enrolled in the study. Over the four year study, 12% of the women and 14% of the men used cannabis. Researchers followed up with couples 12 times throughout the study, and found the chance of conception was similar between groups who used cannabis and groups who didn’t. More substantial clinical research is left to be desired.
