Best Cannabis Strains for Sex

A substance that can relax muscles, ease anxiety and enhance your mood seems like the perfect aperitif for some fun time in the bedroom. Cannabis can increase your sensitivity to touch, get your nerves under control and create a feeling of euphoria that adds to the already-heightened experience of sex. And with the diversity of strains, you can customize your intimacy, depending on what you’re trying to achieve (besides the obvious).

It’s important to note that your favorite edible or a heavy concentrate might not be the best bet for a sexual experience unless you are fully aware of how it will affect you. So instead of ill-advised experimentation, here are some basic tips before incorporating cannabis into sexy time:

  • Don’t consume too much. Unsurprisingly, the more stoned you get, the less some are able to function. A study by the American Academy of Neurology explains as much, so go easy and practice moderation when using cannabis to enhance sex.
  • Prepare (and protect) yourself. Any substance that can lower your inhibition can also lead to high-risk behavior. Protect yourself from STD’s by having protection readily available.
  • Do a trial run. At least make sure you have an idea of how you’ll react when trying a new strain or delivery method, especially if you plan on using it with a new partner. Paranoia and dizziness are not ingredients for great sex.
  • Dryness. Ladies: Marijuana can occasionally cause dryness in the mucous membranes, which includes your vagina. If you’ve tried a strain you like but have never used it during sex, you might want to have some lube close by. You, and your partner, will be thankful.

With these guidelines in mind and the knowledge that one strain of cannabis may affect every person differently, here are some of our favorite cannabis strains for sex:

For Wild Nights

Silver Haze: This fast-acting sativa will come on strong and stay that way. If you have plans to experiment in the bedroom, this might help you overcome your insecurities with its playful qualities that may give you the giggles.

Trainwreck: As the name suggests, this is a sativa-dominant hybrid that packs a punch, and will bring with it inspiration and focus very quickly. It eventually tapers off into a soothing body high and euphoria that will keep you in the mood.

XJ-13: If you’re looking for a sativa experience without overstimulation, XJ-13 will keep you energized and focused without the anxiousness that can sometimes accompany a strong sativa. It’s a good strain to try if you want to sample a sativa and also like a body-tingling high.

For Balanced Experiences

Chemdawg: This balanced hybrid can have strong, immediate effects, but you’ll come out of it with reduced anxiety and relaxation. If you’re nervous about your performance, this is a great strain to try.

Blue Dream: While this strain can be considered sativa-dominant, users can experience both the clear-headed effects as well as a body high. If you like the cerebral effects of sativas and the body high of an indica, blue dream is a great way to experience both in one night.

Bruce Banner: With both an uplifting mind experience and skin that is extra sensitive to touch, this hybrid comes on quickly with some serious stress relief. While it can produce a balanced experience, it’s a strong strain that may not be ideal for cannabis novices.

For Sweet, Sweet Love Making

G13: This indica strain was allegedly created in a government research facility trying to grow powerful strains of cannabis. Indeed, it produces significant body effects that are great for getting touchy-feely, but with clear-headed effects that will keep you in the present.

Skywalker OG: Although this strain is a considered a hybrid, it has both the strong body effects and the mind-altering qualities of a classic indica. The effects are gradual and it may take a few minutes to experience them. If you’d like to get lost in the stars with your partner, this strain is for you.

Grand Daddy Purple: This potent California indica produces a psychoactive high that’s common among West Coast indicas. Users can expect feelings of happiness and euphoria with a significant body buzz that heightens sense of touch. Consider this strain if you’re looking for a shared experience of intimacy with your partner that borders on psychedelic.

Chemdawg Strain Review

Chemdawg Strain Review

Strain: Chemdawg

Lab Tested Cannabinoids: 21.6% THC, 0.06% CBD

Dispensary: Nectar Cannabis 4125 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97217

Chemdawg (also Chemdog) is a renowned cannabis strain of legendary, yet mysterious, origins. The story is that sometime before 1991 a man named Chemdog bought an ounce of high-quality cannabis for $500 at a Grateful Dead Concert in Noblesville, IN at the famous Deer Creek outdoor amphitheater. They exchanged numbers, and Chemdog later received two more ounces in the mail. One of those ounces was seedless, and there were 13 seeds in the other. What I have here is purportedly an offspring of one of those legendary seeds that produced viable female plants. While Chemdawg’s parentage is unknown, its progeny are famous, including classic cannabis strains like Sour Diesel and OG Kush.

I picked up this Chemdawg sample from Nectar Cannabis dispensary in North Portland. Nectar is one of the biggest dispensary chains in Oregon with four Portland area locations and one in Eugene. The Nectar dispensary on N. Mississippi Ave. is in a charming old house. You walk into the living room, which is separated into two spaces, one for recreational users and the other for medical. They were doing so much business while I was there, and had so much product turnover, that it was impossible to keep the menus current. But the budtenders were good at recommending strains similar to what customers had come in looking for.

The kief coverage on this Chemdawg, grown by Flying Eagle Farms, is so dense it almost sparkles in the sunlight. The flowers are many different shades of green riddled with subtle rust colored hair trichomes. This sample had a pungent diesel aroma (terpenes) when pulled apart, with soft hints of sweetness. Through my G Pen Elite vaporizer the flavor was a distinct chemical diesel flavor that lingered in the mouth, giving way to notes of earth and pine (pinene). Smoked in a glass pipe, the flavor was much earthier with only back notes of pine and diesel.

Chemdawg is known for being a potent strain that often leads to couch lock. But after enjoying my first bowl, I found myself happily cleaning and doing chores around the house. I felt like a Stoner Queen, being productive while using the ‘infamous’ motivation-killing Chemdawg.

Then I decided to have a second bowl. My productivity dropped precipitously and a nap became the only option. The high, while very strong, was also very relaxing with tingling in the face and extremities. It also stimulated my appetite.

I believe Chemdawg’s reputation is warranted; I would not recommend this strain to a novice cannabis user. An indica-dominant hybrid, I would say dosing matters for this cannabis strain. At first the cerebral high hits with a wave of creative energy, but in true creeper-strain fashion, it may give way to powerful couch lock or nap with more consumption. With only 21.6 percent THC (and 0.06 percent CBD), Chemdawg is proof that there is more to a smoking experience than THC lab results.
