Weed withdrawal - erectile dysfunction

the no libido/ED is part of the dopamine FLAT LINE. Mine even started BEFORE I quit cannabis as I scraped every last bit of dopamine out of my brain with constantly flooding/bombardment. When I realized for the first time in my life I was having these issues, I knew that livelihood depended on it. Just wish we could all fast forward the clock!

It does take time... this has been a massive lesson in patience, something I have ALWAYS been lacking, especially with THC in my life. The universal consciousness knows... and lessons are presented... we have to learn the lessons, and then we will fricken THRIVE!

It would make sense if it is related to dopamine. I actually started taking a supplement called Levodopa which is the precursor to dopamine. It's derived from a plant called Mucuna Pruriens. I didn't really want to use anything except will power and a healthy lifestyle, but a couple of months ago I started getting severely depressed. Life was so awful and I had no desire at all. It was so bad I almost felt suicidal. So I decided to look for a possible solution without the use of antidepressants or harsh pharmaceuticals (I'm not against modern medicine, but I have a bad history of bad reactions to a lot of pharmaceuticals). I looked into some of the things related to Cannabis use and I did find that it increases your dopamine levels. I also looked into the function of dopamine in our brains and I came to the conclusion that after using cannabis for 14 years and having increased dopamine levels, now after quitting my brain is lacking dopamine and can't produce what it needs and has to adjust to life without the aid of cannabis. I read dopamine is responsible for motivation, desire, focus, pleasure, and other things as well. I started taking Levodopa about a month ago and I don't believe it's a miracle drug, but I have noticed that I'm not down in the pits like I was. This is only temporary of course. I'm only using it to avoid severe depression and as an aid for a few months until my brain can do what it needs without it. It doesn't feel like it's replaced cannabis either. I don't ever feel euphoric or like my brain is being flooded with dopamine. If it really is working then I believe it's supplying me with just enough dopamine to get by. I do believe you are right about it having a relation to dopamine levels.

That's not a "supplement" but a pharmaceutical designed for Parkinsons Disease. There can be withdrawal effects after stopping this drug so just be informed if you're self medicating with it.

Forget about PAWS, you do NOT want DAWS:

Are your erections still weak and feels numb down there or improved a lot?
