Investigators with the University of Chicago assessed the relationship between cannabis use and LUTS in a nationally representative sample of men between the ages of 20 and 59. Those who acknowledged regular marijuana use were nearly twice less likely to report LUTS as compared to non-users, after authors adjusted for other potential confounding variables.
“Regular THC use … appears to be protective from LUTS in young … men,” authors concluded.
