How To Have Great Sex While High

Fellow cannabis users, good news: smoking cannabis can enhance your sex life.

High sex, along with many other activities completed after a toke, might be something you’re already familiar with, but, like most things, it’s gratifying if you do it the right way.

At its worst, cannabis can make you paranoid, quiet, or weird, which no one enjoys while in the sack. At its best, baked boning stimulates sensory experiences. So, now that rigorous scientific data supports the idea that having sex while high is not a bad idea. The question is, how do you have great sex while high?

First off, credit for this very fun finding goes to Dr. Michael Eisenberg, an assistant professor of Urology at Stanford University. After realizing that most of his patients’ office visits surrounded problems in the bedroom, he decided to take a more clinical look into things. He gathered data from the U.S. government’s National Survey of Family Growth and, to his surprise, found that the more people smoked cannabis, the more success they had between the sheets. (Tell us something we didn’t know)

This isn’t the only study that supports the idea that cannabis can aid sex. A previous survey conducted by Psychology Today found that cannabis does indeed act as an aphrodisiac among users — a finding that’s been supported by separate studies since.

In addition, a majority of respondents said smoking cannabis before sex helps enhance the experience. Being under the influence of cannabis before sex can increase sensitivity, ease inhibitions, deliver more intense orgasms, and significantly reduce anxieties.

Pick The Right Strain For Sex Certain strains of cannabis are more likely to cater to sex than others. Some tend to put you in a more cerebral mood; others are designed to enhance physical sensations. Figure out which one primes you for sex best (before the big night, so when your partner asks what you’re doing on the back porch, tell him or her “research”), and go from there. Look for cannabis strains that contains a hybrid of CBD & THC with Terpenes of Limonene, Linalool, Pinene and Caryophyllene. Refrain from myrcene strains, as it gives off a sedative effect.
