Cannabis and Sex: 7 Marijuana Strains to Enhance Pleasure 420 Culture

It’s Valentine’s Day and that means spending time with that special someone in your life. This year, why not add some cannabis to your love-filled day to make things even sweeter? It’s no secret that marijuana and love go hand-in-hand, and that extends to the bedroom as well. Follow along as we showcase some of the best strains to sample this Valentine’s Day if things get intimate.

Top 7 Marijuana Strains for Sex

Cannabis can be used to improve many things – food, music, sleep – but one of the best ways to use weed to improve experiences may be to use it to enhance sexual pleasure. Though some may find cannabis to be too brain heavy for sex, the majority of cannabis consumers claim it improves sexual experiences. Find out for yourself with our pick for top cannabis strains for sex:

Purple Dream

Purple Dream

The first strain on our list is Purple Dream because of its ability to help people relax and enjoy the moment. This sativa strain is uplifting and euphoric with most of the “high” being experienced in the limbs and body rather than the brain. Purple Dream is ideal for people who get lost inside of their heads during sex because it helps silence the internal.

Blueberry

Blueberry

Blueberry produces a strong, immediate body high that lasts for hours. We suggest smoking this potent strain right before sex without waiting too long; if you sit still, you might fall asleep! Nevertheless, its sweet, candy-like flavor and powerful head high serves as an awesome addition to pre-bedtime sex.

Gorilla Glue

A sativa-dominant hybrid, Gorilla Glue is perfect for seasoned smokers thanks to its invigorating high and quick onset. Though its high THC content can make some consumers anxious or paranoid (which could hinder a sexual experience), its euphoric, pain-relieving high can help increase physical pleasure while taking the mind off more persistent discomforts.

Lemon Skunk

Lemon Skunk

Lemon Skunk will add spunk to your sexual experience. Known for its ability to relax the body and inspire social connection, this sativa-dominant hybrid is a great catalyst for communication both in and out of bed. Use this opportunity to explore one another, talk about your most intimate desires, and take in all the sensations that come with a little bedroom boogie.

Elevation

Elevation

Elevation is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a high that comes in waves to amplify orgasm. Though it may start as a heavy head high, it could easily morph into a relaxing body high then back to an invigorating head high. Though the high may cause a fluctuation of sensations throughout the body, the mind maintains its euphoric feeling for hours making it easier to bond with your partner during both sex and foreplay. Once the deed is done, Elevation makes it easy to drift to sleep in the arms of your lover.

Agent Orange

Agent Orange

This strain is a fun one to throw into the bedroom because it inspires quick thought (albeit a bit scatterbrained at times) lending itself to a whole world of spontaneous sexual experiences. Did a new position pop into your mind? Agent Orange will inspire you to voice it in the heat of the moment when inhibitions are low and pleasure is high. You’ll have a lot of energy after smoking this one, though, so keep it on the nightstand ready for some morning nookie.

Skunk #1

Skunk #1

A true classic, Skunk #1 is notorious for its ability to increase libido while relieving pain and relaxing the body. It elevates mood while slowing a racing brain which is perfect for those who tend to stress about performance. However, please note that this strain may cause cotton mouth so keep a bottle of water close by if you need to rewet your tongue for any reason.

Tips for Using Cannabis to Enhance Sex

Marijuana is well-known to improve sensations, but when it comes to weed and sex, balance is key. Avoid uncomfortable paranoia or the dreaded “performance anxiety” by consuming only half of your usual dose. Remember, cannabis affects everyone differently, so some strains might work better for you than others – so try out a few strains and see what works best for you!

If possible, consume cannabis with your partner as a form of foreplay. “Shot-gunning” a hit into your partner’s mouth can be a sensual way for the two of you to get high together, as can a pre-game massage (especially if incorporating some weed-infused intimate oils in the mix).

Smoking with your partner is a great way to bond over a shared activity but can also increase intimacy and sexual pleasure. Though some strains that are high in THC can be too racy for a comfortable (successful) sexual encounter, others make a perfect addition to some bedroom fun. So kick your Valentine’s Day and sex life into high gear with these sexy strains.
