Acute effects of marihuana on luteinizing hormone in menopausal women



Acute effects of marihuana on luteinizing hormone in menopausal women



Pharmacology, Biochemistry, and Behavior 23(5): 765-768



Plasma luteinizing hormone (LH) levels were determined under double blind crossover conditions in 10 healthy menopausal adult females prior to and following smoking of a 1-g marihuana cigarette containing 1.83% .DELTA.9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a 1-g marihuana placebo cigarette. A significant increase in pulse rate and levels of intoxication occurred after marihuana smoking but not after smoking placebo cigarettes. LH levels determined before administration of marihuana and placebo cigarettes were not significantly different and were within the range of normal values for healthy menopausal women. No significant differences were found between LH levels following marihuana and placebo smoking.
