4 Ways Cannabis Can Improve Sex

In the past few years, cannabis has been at the center of many debates and studies conducted by numerous organizations. Today, many states in the US and different countries around the world acknowledge the herb’s medicinal benefits. But do you know that marijuana can also be used to improve your sex life? Here are just some of the ways consuming cannabis can help spice up your romantic and sexual relationships:

  1. Cannabis loosens you up and relaxes you. Due to today’s hectic working environments and the breakneck speed by which people live their lives, it’s often hard to find sufficient time for a gentle and relaxing night of intimacy with your spouse or partner. It’s difficult to detach yourself from work and the stresses of everyday life. Cannabis, thankfully, can help in this regard. The herb has well-documented relaxing qualities that allow both partners to calm down long enough to release their anxieties and worries, and just allow the intimacy to happen. This also has the added effect of breaking the gruesome cycle of anxiety-caused erectile dysfunction, allowing for a more relaxed and intimate lovemaking session.

  2. Cannabis makes couples feel closer to each other. Sharing marijuana with your partner can deepen the bond between the two of you. Scientists say that there is more to this than just having a hobby you can share and do with your partner. Apparently, the consumption of cannabis stimulates the production of the hormone oxytocin in the body. Oxytocin is known as the ‘cuddle hormone’ or the ‘love hormone’ and is usually involved in intimate human interactions. By increasing the production of oxytocin, the feelings of intimacy between both partners is heightened. This, then, leads to a much more rewarding and satisfying lovemaking.

  3. Cannabis stimulates your sense of touch, allowing you to feel tactile sensations much more intensely. Dr. Mitch Earlywine, psychology professor at SUNY Albany, states that certain cannabinoid receptors in our nervous system involved with improved tactile sensations are activated by THC, an active compound found in cannabis. Simply put, once it is introduced to the body, THC activates these receptors and thus intensifies the sensations we feel through our sense of touch. This leads to heightened pleasure during sex, more intense sessions, and even stronger orgasms. While this may be already common knowledge to marijuana users, it’s nice to have actual scientific confirmation of the fact.
  4. Cannabis relieves aches and pains associated with lovemaking. Maybe you’ve got a bum elbow, or your partner has been having terrible back pain for a while. Or perhaps either of you is nursing a fresh injury that hasn’t quite yet faded. We all know how these aches and pains can ruin a night of romance. Sure, popping a painkiller every now and then might fix it, but the side effects associated with painkiller use, such as lethargy, low energy, and sleepiness, can dampen the mood even further. The pain-killing properties of cannabis can remedy the pain and set you in the right mood, so you can move without being held back by any injury.

 

Should you decide to spice up the bedroom with cannabis, then you should try the following strains:

  • Blueberry Diesel. A hybrid of Blueberry and Sour Diesel, this strong, blueberry-flavored and scented strain produces in its consumers a subtle relaxed feeling. It’ll set you in the mood for foreplay or cuddling.
  • Blue Dream. A sativa-dominant hybrid that’s a cross between Blueberry indica and sativa Haze, this particular strain provides total body relaxation without making you feel like you’ve just popped an entire bottle of painkillers. Blue Dream tastes like 2 parts berry and 1 part candy and produces a relaxed yet happy feeling. It’s perfect for making an intimate session much more intimate.
  • Killer Queen. A hybrid famous for its stimulant effects, Killer Queen provides its users enough stamina and focus to last through the night – and possibly until the morning! It’s also been known to help achieve and sustain arousal in couples, which should help if both participants are willing but not quite up to it. For those who wonder whether or not Killer Queen’s psychoactive effect may be too strong, worry not. This strain is widely reported to keep its users grounded and present despite its potency.

Whether you enjoy marijuana recreationally or medicinally, it helps to know that it can also spice up the bedroom. Just make sure to practice consumption safely and with the consent and full knowledge of everyone involved. This way, the onset of cannabis’s effect won’t take any of you by surprise.
