Cannabis use and bone mineral density: NHANES 2007-2010.

Image result for Arch Osteoporos.

“Cannabis use is rising in the USA. Its relationship to cannabinoid signaling in bone cells implies its use could affect bone mineral density (BMD) in the population. In a national survey of people ages 20-59, we found no association between self-reported cannabis use and BMD of the hip or spine.

No association between cannabis and BMD was observed for any level of use.

A history of cannabis use, although highly prevalent and related to other risk factors for low BMD, was not independently associated with BMD in this cross-sectional study of American men and women.”
