Recently we learned that cannabis products can provide pain and stress relief. So with this knowledge, we can start to branch out to discover why we might be feeling those ailments.
Are we in constant pain or constantly anxious? Some of us yes, but to some, situations arise where we feel stress or pain… sex is one of those situations.
Different types of cannabis products and their combination of terpenes have been shown to have very positive affects on sex drive. Today we will discuss what you want to accomplish by mixing cannabis and sex. Some considerations that come to mind are:
- Relief of discomfort, whether that be pain or anxiety
- Energy levels
- The way you react to touch
- Trying something new
First and foremost, we want to disclose, this does not solely mean smoking cannabis (but if that’s what you prefer then you’ll find plenty of options under the indica reviews and sativa reviews of the website).
Here are some other options to consider:
Many foods are considered to be aphrodisiacs or playful items during sex. Edibles can be an experience for both you and your partner.
THC and CBD infused lube or oil
A cannabis infused topical is very natural, as they are plant based. Topicals are not absorbed into the bloodstream, so they will not get users high. If you have tried THC or CBD creams for pain-relief, you may have experienced a tingly sensation at times. This may translate for sensual sensations in the bedroom with THC and CBD infused lube or massage oils. While effects maybe slow to come, (no pun intended) we all know the benefits of lubrication. Adding that extra tingle, feeling touch more intensely can make for a more euphoric session. CAUTION with oils keep away from contraceptives as they may wear thin and break.
THC and CBD suppositories
Studies continue for cannabis and sex; THC and CBD anal and vaginal suppositories have been created in the process. While users should not expect to feel high from suppositories, it has been said to help with pain relief and discomfort in these locations.
Remember to do your research to discover your desired effects. Read the packages and follow directions to avoid problems.
How Terpenes Affect Sex and Intimacy
The goal here is not to bog down with terminology, but to inform consumers of the desired goals.
First and most importantly, if you’ve never heard about terpenes before and unsure what they do, then I highly recommend you read this post about how terpenes affect cannabis before you continue.
Limonene is known to overall boost sex drive, helps the body feel warm and tingly.
Linalool is known to have a calming effect all over the body. Helping with anxiety.
Caryophyllene, Humulene, and Myrcene are known for pain relief.
What’s Better for Sex? Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid
There is no better or worse here. It really depends on what the goal is. If the goal is to be energetic during, it would be wise to look at a sativa dominant strain. If the goal is to feel touch more intensely it is recommended to find an equal balance of THC and CBD in a strain. In this case, we suggest looking at the terpenes for desired effects.
If looking for something new, reviews of dried flowers here, can provide you with effects and experience depending on the terpenes and other compounds found in the strain. Use your prior experiences as well! If you know a certain strain of marijuana has helped you feel calmer, or tingly, or energetic, use that knowledge to your advantage. Beginners should start slow.
Remember some cannabis strains are well known for sleep aid! Try not to pass out on your partner. If mixing cannabis and sex for the first time, perhaps try it by yourself first. Remember to communicate with your partner. Sometimes being too high can prevent that.
Go at your own pace and have fun!
