Cannabis is getting more and more popular as science keeps proving its amazing health and recreational benefits and positive effects. People around the globe who enjoy smoking cannabis for different reasons report significantly more positive results than negative ones, and many countries hear their people out, which leads to its decriminalization and legalization.
Other than fun and medical needs, people also use cannabis to help or maintain their sex life.
So, how does cannabis work its wonders in this aspect of our lives?
The science lies in our endogenous cannabinoid system built-in our bodies, named after the
cannabis plant, a regulatory system in mammals, linked to the brain, organs, glands, muscles,
tissues, and nerves and is what phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant, such as THC and CBD, bind to.
This means that cannabis helps with decreasing inflammation, lowering inhibition, and enhancing senses, which translates to great sex. However, this doesn’t mean a greater dose means better sex; on the contrary, smaller doses do the trick perfectly.
This can be explained by the fact that cannabis and small doses of THC help with anxiety in general. If you suffer from sex-induced anxiety that keeps you trapped in your mind and prevents you from enjoying the act, cannabis strains high in CBD may be of great help for you!
Cannabis is also great if you don’t feel like you are in the mood or if you are just being lazy, even when you want to have sex. It can spice up your creativity and make the entire experience more exciting. THC is activating; it can help you focus and be creative in bed as well.
What’s even better is the fact that cannabis enhances the senses: the smell, the colors, sounds, and in this case, most importantly, the touch. Cannabis may help you reach orgasm much easier, even with a simple touch. Edibles are amazing if you want this result, so no need to wait for too long before you try it out! Edibles take up two hours to kick in and usually last for up to five to six hours compared to the two to three hours from inhalation.
We also know that sex can be a particularly painful experience, especially for women, and can cause irritation. Cannabis is known to have amazing effects as a pain reliever when applied topically. There are cannabis-based products that can both decrease inflammation while encouraging blood flow for better pleasure and sensation. Topicals are non-psychoactive and will not alter your way of thinking and feeling about the act; they will just get you rid of the pain and help you relax.
Cannabis can also help you relax and make you willing to open up to your partner if you feel anxious about talking about a particular subject. It can certainly help you bond and make you try to find solutions for the hypothetical issues that may come up in any normal relationship. And even when it comes to casual hookups and not long term relationships, sex simply feels better when there is good and open communication.
