The Science Behind It

Cannabis has been used by men and women as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years, but how does it work?

When we consume Cannabis (smoking or edibles) one of the main active compounds, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), binds to the CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS)

The ECS is a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters that all play a role in regulating many physiological processes, including sexual function and desire.

This binding activates the release of certain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, which can increase feelings of pleasure, euphoria, and relaxation. These feelings can lead to an increased libido and greater sexual desire.

Cannabis can also increase blood flow to the genitals, which can lead to more intense orgasms and a greater overall sexual experience. Additionally, it can often reduce anxiety and stress, which can be major obstacles to enjoying sex.

How Does Weed Affect Sex for Women?

According to many women, using the appropriate amount of marijuana can enhance their sexual experience by making orgasms pleasurable and boosting their overall sexual desire. This is thought to be due to marijuana’s ability to heighten the senses and alleviate certain conditions that can decrease desire, such as anxiety, insomnia and physical discomfort.

In a recent study by the peer-reviewed journal “Sexual Medicine,” researchers looked into the Association of Cannabis with Female Sexual Function.

“Our results demonstrate that increasing frequency of cannabis use is associated with improved sexual function and is associated with increased satisfaction, orgasm, and sexual desire,”

The authors of the study wrote

Out of the women surveyed, the majority (54.7%) fell within the age range of 30 to 49, and over 80% were in a committed relationship or married. Among these women, a significant number (72.8%) used marijuana regularly, with most reporting use more than six times per week, typically through smoking.

Although the study shows promising results, it is important to remember that weed can have different effects on sexual function in women, with some reporting the opposite effect noticing a reduction in sexual desire and more difficulty reaching orgasm.

How Does Weed Affect Sex for Men?

When it comes to the connection between cannabis use and sexual activity for men, research in this area is still ongoing and not yet fully understood.

Studies such as the one by the International Society for Sexual Medicine have produced mixed results, with some men reporting that marijuana use improves their sexual performance, while others may experience issues such as decreased motivation for sex, difficulty getting or maintaining an erection and trouble reaching orgasm. Those in favour of cannabis in the bedroom reported enhanced sexual pleasure, desire and more intense orgasms!

Is Sativa or Indica Better for Sex?

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that one type of cannabis (Sativa or Indica) is better for sex than the other; it really boils down to the genetic makeup of the plant along with individual preference.

Indica strains are well known for their relaxing and sedating effects. When dosed correctly, the right Indica strain can lead to a heightened sense of touch and other physical sensations producing sensory ecstasy! Too much Indica can however negatively affect sexual performance, so start low and go slow!

Sativa strains are known for increasing energy levels and producing more cerebral and psychedelic effects compared to Indica strains. This energy boost can be beneficial for sexual activity, as the brain plays a significant role in sexual experiences.

While Sativa strains can provide energizing and uplifting effects, it’s important to be mindful of the potential for overstimulation. Excessive use of a Sativa strain can lead to a disconnection from the physical body, causing a person to become overly focused on their thoughts and internal experience rather than being present at the moment.

It’s important to find the right balance; if you are smoking, start with a few tokes, and if consuming edibles, divide you’re edible into smaller pieces and test the waters. It’s always helpful to start with a small amount to monitor your body’s reaction to the effects of the strain.
