The aphrodisiac qualities of cannabis are scarcely known by the general public. Cannabis has actually been used to increase libido for thousands of years in other parts of the world. In fact, it’s included in the Indian Ayurvedic philosophy of medicine and is a key part of tantric sex rituals.,And we all know a healthy sex life can do wonders for our physical and mental health.
For starters, it increases your sensitivity to touch, meaning intimacy undoubtedly feels that much more amazing. It can also calm your nerves and relieve anxiety, which can add to the already existent feelings of euphoria.
Although most people are bashful when it comes to talking about sex, it’s no secret that most of us enjoy the “process.” That said, you might be surprised to learn that there are a host of benefits associated with having regular sex. These include:
- Keeping your immune system healthy
- Improving bladder control in women
- Reducing your blood pressure
- Decreasing your risk of a heart attack
- Better sleep
- A lower level of stress
- Reducing the risk of prostate cancer
Also, the more often you have sex, the stronger your libido becomes, meaning you’ll want even more sex! Marijuana is gaining a reputation as a fantastic libido booster and could enhance the sexual experience.
When it comes to choosing the right marijuana strain to help you get aroused, though, it is crucial to find the right indica to sativa balance for you. While sativa opens the mind to new sexual possibilities, indica has been known to heighten your sensitivity to touch. Choosing the wrong product or consuming too much of a product you love before getting intimate could turn a romantic night into a decidedly un-sexy event. It may take a period of trial and error to figure out exactly what strains increase your sex drive and sexual sensitivity, without making you anxious or tired.
We gathered up the best weed for sex — cannabis strains to stoke the fires burning inside you. If you’re looking to hop aboard and enjoy the ride, check them out.
Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant hybrid that wildly enhances your sense of touch and fills you with energy and a voraciously lustful desire.
You should feel a rush of energy within minutes of smoking Sour Diesel, which, as you could imagine, makes it ideal in the moments leading up to the “big event.” After taking a few hits, you’ll probably want to dispense with foreplay and go at it like rabbits. If you’re looking for a wild night in the bedroom, this strain is definitely up your alley.
There’s nothing worse than the anxiety that can come prior to having sex with a new partner or trying something different in the bedroom. Northern Lights is a great strain for just these situations.
It’s a pure indica strain known for its ability to relieve symptoms of anxiety, stress and pain. A couple puffs of Northern Lights, and you’ll feel stress and anxiety melt away, replaced with a euphoric high and relaxed body. Go easy on it though, because it can cause sleepiness if you consume too much.
If you’re planning an all-night lovemaking session, there are few better marijuana strains than Greek Crack. It produces a euphoric head high that is positively joyful. Also, it fills you with energy and ensures that you’re ready for action when the time comes.
Green Crack is so effective at getting your body and mind started that a lot of people have started to use it to replace their morning cup of coffee! Green Crack is a good option for moderate-to-heavy cannabis consumers looking to liven up their sex life. Since this tends to be a high-energy strain, try it for an upbeat bedroom performance or a daytime rendezvous.
Blue Dream has been one of America’s favorite cannabis strains for a very long time. A sativa-dominant hybrid, it’s as close to a perfectly balanced high as you can get. Blue Dream’s manageable and pleasant high makes it a ubiquitous strain for experienced cannabis consumers and beginners alike.
Because you can expect a long-lasting high from Blue Dream, it’s great for a second round energy boost or an extended period of foreplay.
This strain has been around since the late 1970s. No wonder why everybody was makin’ love in the back of their Volkswagons. It’s got an array of beneficial cannabinoids like CBN and CBD along with a potent THC content of 25%.
New users tread lightly, this strain hits hard. Melt away any date-night jitters with a single puff of this strain.
For those that have a fear of gettin’ down with the lights on, try Durban Poison, wait a few minutes, and see how you magically seem to just don’t give a f*ck about it any more.
While it is true that marijuana can make you more aroused and enhance the lovemaking process, it is important not to overdo it. As you might have imagined, sometimes the more stoned you get, the less functional you become. And yes, that means during sex as well.
Try out the strain pre-sex to ensure you picked the right one. It’s good to at least have a general idea of how you’ll react to a new strain or method of consumption. It’s not very sexy to feel paranoid, dizzy, or couch-locked.
Ladies, cannabis can sometimes cause dryness of the mucous membranes, and that includes your vagina. And if you have cotton mouth, you can’t spit on it either. So make sure to keep some lube and/or a water bottle nearby. Your partner (and your lady parts) will thank you.
