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.
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.
Cannabis users are almost guaranteed multiple orgasms, according to a new survey.
An annual study conducted by Match.com surveyed over 5000 singles, regardless of whether or not they’re members of the site. The 2016 data looked at people’s attitudes towards cannabis and how it affects their personal relationships and dating life.
“Match is exploring at a new type of relationship – the one between singles and weed,” the company says. “For the first time, a dating company is looking at marijuana and the role it plays with singles and dating.”
Insights from the study include:
Cannabis users have more orgasms: Singles who have smoked marijuana were 109 percent more likely to have experienced multiple orgasms. Cannabis has been used as an aphrodisiac for millennia, so it’s not surprising that couples who use cannabis are having better sex.
Cannabis users have an active single life: They were 58 percent more likely to have gone on a date in the past year, 44 percent more likely to be looking for a committed relationship, and 15 percent more likely to already have a partner.
Cannabis users are more likely to hook up: A cannabis enthusiast is 30 percent more likely to make out at the end of the night. There are cannabis products that can enhance arousal, not to mention strains of cannabis that enhance physical sensations. And since cannabis users are having multiple orgasms, they’re actively seeking out sexual activities.
Other insights from the study focus on cannabis as a factor in choosing a partner:
Cannabis users are picky: Cannabis users “are pickier about the type of person they date. They’re less likely to date someone who is unemployed, lives at home with their parents, is a virgin, and is messier than they are,” according to the survey.
Cannabis users are educated: Singles in support of ending cannabis prohibition are 65 percent more likely to have graduate degrees, employment and a healthy lifestyle.
Cannabis use is generational: Generation X was a product of the “Just Say No” campaign and it apparently worked. Both Baby Boomers and Millenials are more comfortable with marijuana, which indicates age is less of a factor.
Cannabis users are more likely to vote for Bernie Sanders: 76 percent more likely, in fact.
Alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs are more of a turn off than cannabis: When looking at habits, singles indicated that illegal drug use was the number one turn-off (90 percent) along with alcohol (78 percent) and tobacco (75 percent). Regular cannabis use came in at 70 percent, with gun ownership following at 34 percent.
Before normalization of cannabis use can happen, we must first plant the seeds of change.
This 4|20 season, Dixie Elixirs and the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) want to bring the community of cannabis together. “Pot & Prejudice” is a new campaign and video series that plans to change the perception of cannabis consumers through education, advocacy and giving back to the Marijuana Policy Project, the largest organization behind cannabis policy reform in the United States.
The “Pot & Prejudice” video series hopes to inform the public about the harmful effects of marijuana prohibition and pushes for activism to change the law so that cannabis can be seen without prejudice.
In Colorado and California, if you buy a Limited Edition 100MG Wildberry Lemonade Elixir at participating dispensaries, Dixie will donate $5 dollars to the MPP. For every crate of Wildberry sold Dixie is donating another $15. Not only are you helping educate yourself so you can educate others, you’re also giving back to a strong voice that fights prejudice for the cannabis community.
Buy a Limited Edition 100MG Wildberry Lemonade Elixir at a participating dispensary in CA or CO, and Dixie will donate real dollars to MPP while you enjoy your tasty cannabis freedom.
Give a Damn by sharing the video & taking a stand against #PotandPrejudice
Love and Marij is elevating the cannabis experience even further by using parties and pot to fight prejudice. They’re also giving inspiration for 4|20 parties, 4|20 weddings, dates and beyond. Invite your friends to your Lemonade Soiree, A 4|20 Garden Party, or even a legalization celebration!
Celebrate spring by grabbing a crate of Wildberry Lemonades and hosting a party with one of Love and Marij’s Pinterest Wildberry Party Boards. Invite all your friends; even the ones that don’t love to burn down and dare to use “Pot & Prejudice” to create a dialogue about normalization and to help fight outdated stereotypes.
Set up some healthy munchies, brings some varieties of edibles, concentrates, and then talk — really talk — about how cannabis has been a positive influence in your life. Or maybe how it made you nervous to use at first. It doesn’t have to be scripted but those philosophical thoughts tend to bloom when the smell of bud is in the air.
Be real; if using cannabis hasn’t always been a good experience, then definitely share to help promote responsible, educated consumption. Maybe someone has felt the same and can relate to your experience. It helps anyone engaged become more informed and the ripple effect begins.
Then share your Pot & Prejudice experiences on social media using the following hashtags:
