Here’s some good news for ladies who’d like to have their breasts enhanced without surgery. A side effect of marijuana may be a cause of breast enlargement or gynecomastia, which is greek for “woman-like breasts.” On the flip side, most men do not consider feminine breasts a blessing, but cannabis may have the same effect on them. Some men are reportedly suffering from the condition and having their breasts reduced through painful surgery.
One of the most common reasons for enlarged breasts is the use of marijuana according to a report by The Washington Post. Paul G. Ruff IV, a Washington cosmetic surgeon who specializes in treating gynecomastia, said that men from 18-35 years are suffering from the condition due to frequent use of pot. Ruff said that marijuana is an estrogen stimulator and could affect areas like breasts tissues.
Besides excessive pot use, other causes of enlarged breasts are due to a hormonal imbalance, but it can be induced from using prescription drugs.
