Spermatogenesis, testis cholesterol, and plasma testosterone levels were examined at 40, 50, and 60 days of age in mice of four inbred strains produced by selection for early and late sexual maturation of males.
Strange females increase plasma testosterone levels in male mice.
Findings indicate that bisexual encounters are likely to produce endocrine changes in members of both sexes, along with previous findings suggesting that strange males affect endocrine function in females.

Hypothalamic action of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol to inhibit the release of prolactin and growth hormone in the rat.
Neither dose of THC altered the release or storage of the two hormones during culture or affected the response to the releasing hormones which is suggestive that there is no direct effect of THC on either GH or PRL release.
Cannabinoids inhibit testosterone secretion by mouse testes in vitro.
Addition of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or cannabinol to an incubation medium containing decapsulated mouse testes caused a significant reduction in the accumulation of testosterone in the medium.…

The results indicate that THC alters pituitary LH release by inhibiting the release of LHRH which then increases in the MBH by continued synthesis or transport from rostral areas, and the existence of an FSH releasing factor is supported.
