Best Cannabis Strains for Sex

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.

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.

Granddaddy Purple Review

Granddaddy Purple Review

Granddaddy Purple, or GDP, is an indica-dominant hybrid that is as classic and top-shelf as Marty Mcfly’s shoes. A cross between Big Bud and Purple Urkle, two staple indica strains, GDP’s phenotypes have a robust, indisputable grape tint, which are also highlighted in sister strains Grape Ape and Granddaddy Grape Ape.

Like most indicas, this strain is used by consumers for insomnia, loss of appetite, pain and anxiety. GDP is ideal for consumers seeking an extensive, relaxing high that will provide relief for most physical ailments. Resonant in body and mind, GDP invokes a generous fusion of euphoria and tranquility, allowing for total relaxation.

This strain is a beautiful pairing of deep purple brindled in light green, and with the contrast of fuzzy orange trichomes and snow white crystal resin, you might want to eat this nocturnal delight. There is something about purple nugs that designates deliciousness. The sweet scent has a great berry, mostly grape, aroma. Even though it’s not immensely pungent, GDP is zesty and earthy and has a dignified presence. When breaking up bud, I appreciate when resin doesn’t stick like rubber cement and lint. GDP is light and leaves a lingering, dusty essence that will continue to seduce you throughout the day. Think Salma Hayek from From Dusk till Dawn.

For best taste, I recommend consuming this while it’s fresh. As it drys, the purple and all its lustiness fades away. As a mostly active smoker I prefer to consume this type of indica in particular moments, as it is damn good at it’s job.

Granddaddy Purple is consistent in both taste and effect. After a 17 mile hike this weekend, it was the perfect way to recover physically and mentally. I went for my go-to trusty glass pipe, appropriately named Napoleon, small but mighty. The taste is pungent and, if you’re synesthetically inclined, purple. The terpene profiles of radiant berry infuse the first hit, which is a bit harsh but well worth the burn. The exhale is much smoother and deflects the cough, thereby illuminating the piney grape aroma in both your mouth and air.

GDP’s immediate effects are fully realized after 15 minutes, granting you the ability to unwind and to dismiss the clutter of anxieties. This strain is a true freedom fighter, unfettering the mind from the daily grind. Being heady isn’t always easy, but this strain takes it in stride, providing a euphoric and imaginative high that quickly manifests in quintessential “high-thoughts” like, What if bubbles didn’t pop, but teleported? And, Is “Mac” an acronym for Macaroni And cheese?

For a solitary smoker, GDP will likely contribute a variety of expansive experiences for inner cerebral growth. In company, this is the perfect strain to indulge boundless communal wandering and will host mind-bending conversations. The body is no-man-left-behind for this smooth journeying strain. The feels are all the feels floaty and calm, and while it might keep some couch-ridden or simply stagnant, others such as myself may feel a sense of invigorating serenity. As a precautionary note, GDP munchies are no joke, as this strain has been known the clean out pantries faster than Marty zapping back to the future.

This strain’s high made me calm but perceptive, content but not sedated. Granddaddy Purple is one of my favorite classic strains because it creates a standard relaxed and mellow feel that I would recommend to anyone from those cannabis-curious to full on connoisseurs.

Recommended activities: soaking in a warm bath or taking a nighttime stroll.
