With 29 states and DC making marijuana legal either for medical or recreational purposes (and more coming in 2018) cannabis is becoming more and more popular as the days go by. According to a 2017 Gallop Poll a record high 64% Americans support legalizing cannabis. With all this interest, it’s no wonder people have become interested in the connection between cannabis and sex.
Let’s first give some information on how cannabis affects the body. Our endocannabinoid system (ECS) is what allows us to be affected by cannabis. Here’s a link for more information on endocannabinoids for a full understanding - https://herb.co/2016/07/28/endocannabinoid-system-dummies . A quick summary from the page is this: “Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers that tell your body to get these processes moving and when to stop. They help maintain optimal balance in the body, also known as homeostasis.”
After the brain, the genital organs have more ECS receptors than other organs so it’s no wonder that people report an increase in sexual arousal when high. The marijuana market is taking advantage of this fact and making products specifically for this purpose. There are multiple cannabis lubricants (http://foriapleasure.com), cannabis flavored condoms (http://www.cannadom.com), marijuana flower shaped vibrator (https://ganjavibes.com/products/mary-jane-vibrator) I have to admit; that one sounds odd to me, a strain of cannabis made specifically for women that has been said to be Viagra for women (http://www.sexxpot.com). There’s The Peter Piper Pecker Puffer Glass Pipe Dildo (http://www.passionshop.com/Peter-Piper-Pecker-Puffer.html) that’s both a dildo and a pipe - I personally do not like the sound of #1- inserting glass into any body part of mine and #2- then the thought of a flame anywhere near it also. However, that’s just me personally – to each their own.
This review from January 2017, http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1043661816312385 reports that 70% of marijuana users reported increased sexual performance after using the plant. The majority also had some sort of “enhancement in pleasure and satisfaction.” People have said that time is distorted while high so that being high during sex seems to prolong the act and making your orgasm more intense. Some have stated that 15 minutes felt like an hour. Cannabis has also been known to make you more adventurous and creative in the bedroom. You might find yourself adding new positions or toys or saying things that surprise your partner. You’ll be less inhibited than when sober or when drinking. These things can strengthen your relationship; bringing you closer as you explore each other.
Are you a cannabis user? Have you tried it in the bedroom? Has it improved your sex life?
