Harvard study says: Men who smoke marijuana have higher sperm count

According to a new study from Harvard, men who smoke marijuana may have a higher sperm count.

In the study, Harvard University researchers collected semen samples from 662 men and found that those who have smoked weed at some point in their lives and those who smoke an average of two joints per week have significantly higher sperm counts than those who’ve never touched the stuff.

It was also found that weed smokers have higher levels of testosterone and lower serum FSH concentrations–which, if high, can indicate infertility.

However, the researchers warn the results need to be interpreted with caution and add further study needs to be done on the health effects of marijuana use.
