Weed yoh. Did you know that people were already using it as an aphrodisiac during Pharaonic times?
There are also references to cannabis-induced boning in seventh-century texts from India and others from Chinese texts, ancient Germanic tribes, and many African cultures.
Fast forward to 2021, and marijuana has seen widespread decriminalization and full legalization in some countries and states.
In the U.S., for instance, recreational marijuana is legal in at least 19 states, Washington, D.C., and the territory of Guam. Medical marijuana is legal in at least 31 states.
With so much kush floating around, weed-fueled sex is seeing a renaissance of sorts. People are more willing to experiment, especially coming from the anxiety-inducing pandemic period.
So, does weed enhance sex, or is it a conspiracy by the “Marijuana-Whatever complex to push it to consumers? And how do you get the most from your weed-fueled smashing?
Open your minds, yoh, we are about to peer into other dimensions.
Long ago at the Uni of British Columbia…”Hail, UBC!”, researchers recruited 216 marijuana users online (darn, it ain’t that long now, is it?) to see how it affected their sexual experience.
- 74% said it increased sensitivity to touch
- Another 74% said it improved sexual satisfaction
- 66% said it enhanced their orgasms
- It helped 70% of the participants feel more present and relaxed during sex
- Some admitted that cannabis helped them climax
Only 5% reported terrible experiences from their weed-fuelled intercourse.
There have also been other interesting findings from other studies:
In one, men and women who used marijuana daily had 20% more sex during the previous four weeks than peers who abstained.
Another study on women concluded that it enhanced sexual arousal and orgasms.
According to one of the most extensive studies on marijuana and sex, led by Dr. Maichael Eisenberg, an assistant professor of urology at Stanford University, the more people smoked marijuana, the more success they tended to have in the bedroom.
Breathe in deeply and breathe out slooowly. Relax yoh.
See, cannabis has about 100 cannabinoids. These are the active ingredients or components. Of those, two remain the most known and studied:
- THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) – which gives stoners the weed high and other psychotropic effects.
- CBD (Cannabidiol) – which doesn’t give a high but reduces anxiety.
Cannabidiol is derived from the hemp plant and marijuana and is actually medically legal in 46 states. It’s also the most commonly used in weed-infused products.
Marijuana also contains terpenes. These chemicals produce perfumy smells in some weed strains. Of these, 3 have the most pronounced effects:
- Myrcene – Known for its powerful sedative effects.
- Beta-Caryophyllene – Relieves pain and anxiety
- Limonene – elevates mood and relieves stress.
Yaay…we got through science. Now, let’s get some practical action in this place.
So, you heard your friend talking about his experience having sex while high. Words like “mind-blowing,” “back-breaking-toe-curling orgasms,” and many others were probably thrown around. And now you’re wondering, should I?
Well, maybe you should.
Cannabis acts as a vasodilator. It increases blood flow around the body, making already-sensitive parts more sensitive.
But that’s just the tip…of the iceberg, not the other of the “Just the Tip” fame.
Weed also eases inhibitions, improves mood, brings you into the present moment, and can even help deliver those toe-curling orgasms you heard about.
Smoking weed before sex may also reduce anxiety, a significant cause of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. With any luck, cannabis may even help you last longer in bed.
For the best high sex, keep these tips in mind:
Different marijuana strains affect the body differently. Some induce a more cerebral, analytical mood, while others enhance physical sensations.
The effects also vary from person to person, so don’t feel pressured to smoke what your partner smokes. Start small and experiment with various strains to identify what works for you sexually.
Thanks to legalization and some research, Sativa-dominant strains seem to have the most effect on sexual experience.
Sativa-heavy strains such as Blue Dream, Kryptonite (a 50-50 Hybrid), Amnesia Haze, plus a few Indica-dominant strains like Wedding Cake and Bubblegum Kush are an excellent place to start.
According to a scientific study, weed spurs creativity.
Use it to your advantage in the bedroom. Act on some of the unusual ideas that come to mind. Let things flow naturally. Don’t block the energy, yoh.
Explore weird positions, try role-playing and bring your sexual fantasies alive. Just try new things in the bedroom and tell your partner what you want.
Most marijuana smokers experience cotton mouth – a feeling of dryness in your mouth after smoking. THC might be responsible. It blocks some of the glands that produce saliva.
Cannabis also causes “cotton vagina” in women.
While that’s not the experience for men, using lots of lube during intercourse enhances your overall experience and prevents injuries.
You can also play around with CBD-infused lubes, massage oils, lubricants, and creams for a more enhanced bedroom experience.
Don’t start experimenting with weed on the day you’re supposed to have sex. You may have an entirely different and probably awful experience. It may even potentially land you in the emergency room.
Try out different strains way before the big day. That way, you know what works for you and determine the proper dosage.
Studies indicate that marijuana’s aphrodisiac properties only seem to occur in low and moderate doses.
This brings us to the last point.
Weed cookies take out the smoke and unusual smell from the equation. However, they introduce problems of their own.
For instance, getting the dosage right with edibles can be a problem for most people. Also, unlike smoking marijuana, the effects of edibles set in slower and may last a lot longer.
Take edibles in very small doses and observe how you feel. Please don’t get too high either because it’ll ruin the whole experience.
Marijuana can elevate your performance and experience between the sheets. It’s been shown to reduce anxiety, enhance physical sensations and ease inhibitions.
However, to have the best weed-fueled sex, you must experiment with different strains to identify what works for you.
Done right, you’ll have the most gratifying sexual experience of your life.
