Recently I was presented with an interview by someone who claims that marijuana is feminizing men and masculating women.
Reference: Video interview with Dr. Wesley Muhammad
After watching Dr. Wesley Muhammad give his interpretation on this science, I wanted to look up medical doctors on the same subject, and what I found is confirmation of this chemical change that is directly associated with smoking marijuana.

Marijuana Use Subtly Demasculinizes Men. Fact.
Dr. Ester Fride is Professor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences at the College of Judea and Samaria, Israel. And Dr. M. Clara Sanudo-Pena is from Brown University’s Schrier Research Laboratory, Department of Psychology. In 2002 they co-authored an article: “Marijuana and Movement Disorder,” for the edited volume: “Biology of Marijuana.” They inform us:
“One of the well established effects of THC (the psychoactive chemical of marijuana) is a suppression of release of pituitary hormones, including…luteinizing hormone (from which testosterone is made)…THC also has an inhibiting effect on serum testosterone levels, and it has been shown to REDUCE testicular weight (!!!!!). Smoking marijuana has been shown to significantly reduce luteinizing hormone (LH) in human males…In males LH stimulates…production and secretion of testosterone.”
Thus, the THC in marijuana has been shown to reduce the size of a man’s testicles and inhibit the production of testosterone – the masculine Dominance Hormone.
Dr. Fride and Dr. Sanudo-Pena also inform us:
” Marijuana has been shown to have significant effects on weight (smaller), height (shorter) and head circumference (smaller) of newborns to mothers’ who used it during pregnancy and while breast feeding…It is interesting to note that males may be more at risk of the effects of drugs because of the effects on hormones…It is the application of male hormones that masculinize the brain. It is in this context that we wish to note that males who start (smoking marijuana) early have a more female like global (cerebral blood flow, CBF). It is generally accepted that females have a higher resting CBF than males…However, CBF of males who started using marijuana early was not different from females, but was significantly
higher than” other males.
Other studies shows that homosexuality is a choice, not a genetic condition.
- New U.S. Study says Gay People are not ‘Born that Way’, Sexual Orientation Not Fixed
- Identical Twin Studies Prove Homosexuality is Not Genetic | Summary: Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way.
I have very little insight into this issue, and I am not claiming to be an expert. It is just noticeable to me how much society has shifted regarding these issues, especially about transgender issues. With the scientific analysis of what THC does to block testosterone, and what cannabis does to promote estrogen production when it effects the pituitary gland, it makes me wonder if people who believe that they were born as the wrong sex, may not be dealing with a transgender issue, but possibly be dealing with something that they are eating, or smoking. There are a lot of foods that also effect pituitary gland.
