Male Birth Control just a Bong Hit Away?

The long and sordid history behind a male birth control pill is something I don’t care enough about to find the links for.  So, you’ll just have to take my word for it.  Recently, new research has unveiled a correlation between loss of fertility and the endocannabinoid anandamide commonly found in (best) Kind(s) (of) Bud.  Find out how after the jump.

The HV1 protein is attached to the flagella of your sperm (the little tail on individual sperm).  When your sperm encounter a vagina, the alkaline conditions inside activate the HV1 to emit protons that make your little guys swim in an inexorable quest for that delightful egg (Creation, yea!).  But, what if say, an endocannabinoid anadamide (EA for short), raised the pH levels in your testes, so that the HV1 triggered the protons a little early?

You see the pH levels in your testicular tract are usually low enough to prevent the protons from the HV1 protein from firing.  Makes sense right–you don’t want to tire them out.  Anyways, when you introduce the EA from smoking, the pH levels rise, simulating an alkaline environment and triggering the protons in your HV1 protein.  Premature proton firing (not to be confused with premature ejaculation), hence your little guys tire out before they reach the promised land.

But, before you get all “Baby, I’m a pothead, we don’t need rubbers,”   keep in mind (from PopSci)

it should be noted that an Hv1 pill can’t hit the market until some scientists explore some potential side effects. Specifically, Hv1 protein acts across the body in a range of different ways, not just in sperm. By changing the pH environment for Hv1 protein in general, bodily functions may alter in unforeseen ways.

That could mean any number of terrible things, so keep throwing on that Jimmy Cap until more evidence is reported.
