Cannabidiol (CBD) is among the most considerable phytocannabinoids current within the plant Hashish sativa (marijuana). There have been a number of research of CBD in the previous few many years, primarily targeted on its neuroprotective properties, notably after the identification of the endocannabinoid system and its participation within the central nervous system. However, the peripheral results of CBD, notably on reproductive physiology, had been additionally evidenced. A story evaluate was carried out utilizing the PubMed database to determine research that analyzed the pharmacological results of CBD on the male reproductive system of vertebrates and invertebrates. Thirty-two citations (in vivo and in vitro) had been recognized. Among the many vertebrates, the research had been carried out with males, monkeys, rats and mice. Research with invertebrates are centered completely on the ocean urchin. The CBD remedy intervals embrace largely acute and subacute evaluations. Publicity to CBD is related to a discount in mammalian testis measurement, the variety of germ and Sertoli cells in spermatogenesis, fertilization charges, and plasma concentrations of hypothalamic, pituitary and gonadal hormones. Furthermore, persistent doses of CBD have impaired sexual habits in mice. From the research recognized on this evaluate, it’s doable to conclude that CBD has unfavorable results on the reproductive system of males. Nonetheless, data continues to be restricted, and extra analysis is required to elucidate absolutely the mechanisms of motion, in addition to the reversibility of CBD results on the reproductive system.
