One evening, a few years ago, I accidentally had sex while I was high. I wasn’t planning it. We just ended up there, and it was truly next level!
I immediately needed to know more. I began researching cannabis products for sex and soon my bedside drawer was filled with cannabis lubes and products that are meant to enhance sex. Have you tried cannabis on your vagina yet? I know, I know. It sounds crazy at first, but cannabis has absolutely taken my sex life to the next level in every way. Yes, I have my favorite products, and we will get to that. But from the start, I found my connection to my person to be so much deeper and intense. My ability to relax, concentrate on the moment, stop self-doubting and feel more confident naked help me to be a better partner and of course, you guessed it, better in the sack.
Still not sure? Here’s what you need to know about cannabis and sex. It’s not a silver bullet, but cannabis can enhance your sex life, heighten your sense of touch, spark your imagination and take you to that next level of connecting. Here’s how it works. THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in our brains. This boosts the amount of dopamine, a hormone partially responsible for pleasure, in our bodies, which may explain for the increase in satisfaction. In fact, it turns out, it can help women who spend a little time with the bud before having sex, to have higher sex drives, less pain during sex, and more satisfying orgasms compared to women who abstain. The study authors conclude that marijuana impacts sexual satisfaction, but aren't quite sure why. However, they theorize it could be due to lowered stress, anxiety, and inhibitions, which make people more likely to experiment in bed. Or, maybe weed just really changes the way you experience intimacy.
Another study—this one in 2017 by Stanford University researchers—had found a direct correlation between frequent pot-smoking and frequent sex and specifically concentrated on female pleasure and orgasms, especially when the reality of an orgasm gap—the clear disparity between men and women when it comes to achieving orgasm—still exists. Gynecologist Dr. Becky Lynn decided to conduct her own study, where almost 400 women filled out an anonymous questionnaire about their cannabis use and sex lives. In the survey, 127 women said they have smoked before sex and have subsequently had better sex drives and more orgasms compared to those who don’t smoke. Libido enhancer? Yes. Yesss. Yesssssssss!
Which leads me to the main event. The orgasm. Maybe you have them, maybe you don’t, and maybe you care, maybe you don’t...but I personally wanted them more often and with a little less effort. From lubrication to orgasm, using cannabis in the bedroom has become my favorite way to get high. Or, I should say, to get my vagina high.
So here it is, the shortlist of my favorite cannabis products for hot nights.
Herba Buena Quiver Oil (women owned)
This is my go-to lube for a reason. It works alone or along with your favorite cannabis strain. He will like it too.
I love Grandaddy Purp for vaping cannabis before sex and then layering in some Quiver Oil when the time is right. Magic.
Edibles with a kick:
Dosist Passion Vape Pen
This is a good one for newbies because the doses are regulated, so no matter how hard you puff, you get the same consistent 2.5 mg dose every time. Start with one dose to see how it amplifies your next romp.
For those who prefer edibles, this tea is perfectly dosed to enhance the moment without going overboard with the buzz. Give it 20 minutes to kick in. Perfect for cannabis iced tea. Women owned, and they know a thing or two about women & sex.
So there it is, my favorite cannabis products for sex. Hope this helps you go from none-to-some or even from good-to-great!
