CannaBody: Toke & Poke – Is Weed Good For You Sex Life?

Posted in: CannaBody,Uncategorized | Posted on: January 28, 2020

Let’s talk about sex baby! Just like Salt N Peppa, we’re here to get real about sex, and why cannabis can assist with hitting the high notes between the sheets with your partner.

It’s OK to not be an expert on cannabis, we’re here to give some insights on which strains may help you get into the mood, and have you ready for an evening (or daytime 😉 ) filled with romance.

But what is it about weed that may add a little spice in the bedroom? The truth is that researchers have not precisely pinpointed the exact reason because, with our bodies, we all have different things that work for us.

Researchers have discovered “the way marijuana interacts with the body’s cannabinoid receptors, some of which are located in parts of the brain responsible for regulating hormones that play a role in sex” (Lawson, 2019).

So, what they’re saying is that we’re really looking to stimulate those cannabinoid receptors when we’re getting ready to get down with our loved ones!

Now if you’re sitting there as I did, wondering if you should go for a strain with more CBD or THC, you’re in luck! Both have their benefits! It’s been suggested that CBD may improve stamina and energy, all important traits when entering the boudoir. THC is known for its euphoric feeling and increases sensitivity. Either way, you won’t go wrong with whatever you choose. 

Pairing cannabis with sex is a great combination because it may help you relax, and instead of focusing on our insecurities (come on! We all have them!), we can focus on our partner! On top of that, you may find that cannabis contributes to better climaxes. So before your next bedroom session, why not give a little canna-session a-go first.

When it comes to sex, it always comes down to the same thing, what works for you works and finding that right strain is going to be important. Just like when you started having sex, you’re going to have to experiment before you find what works for you.
