Is Sex Really Better With Marijuana?
The evidence that weed is a powerful sex-enhancing substance is overwhelming, albeit mostly anecdotal. Still, there’s some recent research that shows that men and women who smoke weed have sex more often. Clearly, it must be because they enjoy it more, right?
How Can Weed Help You In The Bedroom?
Cannabis, when consumed in the right quantities and in the right setting, can make you more sociable and flirtatious, increasing your chances of finding a partner – and when already in bed, it slows down your perception of time so that you start noticing every detail, while everything you feel is made so much impactful. Men experience sex in a more holistic way, with less focus on the sensations down there, and as a result, the sex act lasts longer. Women achieve orgasm much more easily, making the experience absolutely spectacular for all parties concerned.
What Makes A Good Aphrodisiac Strain?
To be considered an aphrodisiac, a strain of weed must:
- Relieve anxiety. Look for strains that are good against stress, don’t cause paranoia and have raised levels of CBD, or simply consume only a small amount before your love-making session.
- Gently stimulate you without clouding your mind or making you spaced out. Sativa-leaning or balanced 50/50 hybrids would be ideal. However, if Indica is all you have, just smoke it in moderation.
- Heighten your sensitivity to pleasurable stimuli, especially touch. Look for the word ‘sensual’ in the description of the high.
- Have a rich, dessert-like flavor. It’s easier to tune into sexual enjoyment if it all starts with a pleasant aroma, not just the old-school marijuana smell.
