Marijuana has always been linked to sex from many aspects, either for its aphrodisiac properties, its relaxing and disinhibiting effect or for myths generated around the plant.
But the reality is that, until not so long ago, marijuana's fame as a sexual enhancer was based on user experiences, with no scientific studies to back it up.
What are the effects of cannabis?
Today, with new and more permissive laws regarding cannabis, this has changed and more and more studies support the theory that cannabis benefits our sex life.
As a study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine shows, cannabis use in women helps to reach orgasm more easily and also showed an increase in experienced pleasure, lubrication and sexual desire.
For men, on the other hand, the story is a little different. The study shows that cannabis use increases orgasm satisfaction, but beyond that it does not return clear results.
An in-vitro animal study suggests that cannabis may be linked to erectile dysfunction, but it is not yet possible to say for humans.
Beyond all the studies on the relationship between cannabis and sex out there, the best way to draw your conclusions is to try it and see if it's your thing. We all know the relaxing effects of marijuana and for cannabis lovers like us, the combination is exquisite.
Whether it's for a romantic dinner, a long walk on the beach or just lounging on the couch and watching Netflix, cannabis can stimulate and benefit the relationship between couples and translate into a better sexual relationship.
Strains and uses
Whether it's for disinhibition or to enhance the senses for sexual enjoyment, there are several uses for cannabis. For example, an indica strain generally translates into a more intimate, relaxed sexual act. On the contrary, a sativa will give us a more active and lively night.
