You might have seen it before. Some stoners online claim that “high sex is the best sex”. Many couples enjoy a few buds before engaging in sexual activities, claiming it to be a natural aphrodisiac. Some say weed and sex go hand-in-hand. But is that true? What are the facts behind it all?
First, we must take some details into consideration. Unfortunately, there has not been much research done on the correlations between cannabis and sex. Therefore, we have a limited amount of researched facts on the subject. Most of the research we were able to gather comes from individual user experiences.
In addition, sexual arousal and activities are hard to cover in general. This is because people can be very different. Some things that enhance sexual desire may only work on some people and not others. Good sex to you could be bad sex to someone else.
How Weed Can Enhance Sex
Though we all may be sexually aroused by different things, one thing we all might have in common is that we can benefit from marijuana. More specifically, we can all find a way (or two) that it enhances a night of love-making. Keep in mind, however, that each of these “enhancements” below may not work for all couples.
One quite obvious effect of marijuana is its ability to work as a muscle relaxer and pain reliever. Particularly, this can benefit older couples or simply couples with aches and pains. Those who suffer from muscle spasms and/or pain may find relief from cannabis and are thus able to be more “active” in bed.
Cannabis is also known to enhance creativity in the brain. This may prompt many couples to try out some different sex positions or even try something new altogether. Creativity can lead to a more fun and entertaining experience, instead of just the usual. In addition, many users have self-reported that smoking marijuana before sex increases their sensitivity and can also make orgams more intense.
So weed may enhance your big night, but how should you go about doing it? Some couples admit that smoking moments before love-making can be too intense, enough to make the big night not happen at all. What are some good practices? Certainly, you may have your own weed routines before a big night. If you’d like to share it, drop a comment below!

You may not want to use marijuana then begin love-making a few minutes later. Instead, allow some time in between for the effects to smoothly kick in, and don’t rush it. Try putting around 5-20 minutes in between using weed and sexual activities.
Beware of cottonmouth! Every experienced stoner knows of this unpleasant feeling, and it can certainly ruin a good night. Dry sex is no fun, especially if oral activities are practiced. In this case, its best to keep some water around and for everyone involved to stay hydrated.
Choosing the right strain for the night is also important. Use a sativa strain if you want to use cannabis to get you energized for sex. Sativa strains are also known to enhance creativity more. On the other hand, if you enjoy a slower, more relaxed pace of love-making, stick to an indica strain. Since people have different sexual desires, and different taste in strains, sometimes one partner would do better with an indica and the other with a sativa. Figure out which strains work best for you and your partner, you may have to try a few!
Lastly, make sure you do not get too high before having sex. You still want to be able to function and enjoy the moment, and not simply lay there all night (unless that’s really yours and your partner’s thing). How much weed you should consume solely depends on your tolerance level.
Remember: we are all different and have different desires. What works for one couple may yield negative results for you and your partner. Try a few different things out to determine what works best. Smoke a few unique strains, maybe even try edibles. Once you find that perfect combination, your love-making may never be the same. Thanks for reading!
