HOW TO USE CANNABIS FOR BETTER SEX AND ORGASM

Marijuana marketers in areas where the substance is legal have pounced on anecdotal evidence that adding a little weed may boost excitement in the bedroom. They claim sex is magical; one feels like a maniac behind the wheel. They say it is a feeling you would not like to miss out on. Many THC-infused lubricants claim to improve arousal and orgasms, and some proponents of cannabis-enhanced intimacy have made careers out of the idea. Cannabis can be used to improve sexual intercourse and orgasms. This article highlights ways in which cannabis can better sex and orgasms.

How Cannabis Works in General

According to de Salas-Quiroga et al. (2015), marijuana's psychoactive effects result from a brain chemical reaction that alters the neural communication network. Lee (2012) explains that THC's molecular structure resembles the brain chemical, Anandamide, which is crucial for transmitting chemical information between neurons across the nervous system. Areas affected by cannabis intake are memory, pleasure, concentration, thought, coordination, movement, and time perception.

Sex and Cannabis

According to Fernández‐Ruiz, Hernández & Ramos (2010), a substance known as dopamine is produced due to the activation of cannabinoid receptors by THC. Dopamine produced during sexual activity affects brain regions that control sexual function, which may lead to or cause an increase in sexual pleasure. It is difficult to get a clear picture of how marijuana affects the human body because of the restricted sample sizes in most research. In addition, since they are survey research, they depend on the participants' memory of specific information from their past. One study found that most participants had a greater desire for sex, improved sensitivity, and increased pleasure in their sex lives.

In contrast, another found that most participants had higher sexual satisfaction. Women who smoked pot before a sexual encounter were more likely to have pleasurable orgasms and greater levels of sexual desire, as Lynn et al. (2019) explained. Women who regularly used marijuana were more likely to have satisfying orgasms, whether they smoked before or after intercourse. Results like this suggest that cannabis has a positive correlation with greater sexual pleasure, which may be used as a basis for future studies into female sexual dysfunction. According to Hernandez (2021), having intercourse while high on marijuana produces more intense and faster orgasms.

Starting Low and Going Slow

All drugs are known to have side effects, and so is cannabis. Experts suggest taking a tiny bit of tincture, if you are a beginner, before going up. At moderate quantities, cannabis may improve libido, but it isn't as beneficial at large levels. Anxiety and paranoia might develop in some individuals if given too little medication. The medicine might also block orgasm, causing the reverse of what was expected.

How Much Is Too Much?

That will depend on a person. Some people have stronger tolerance to cannabis than others. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse's guidelines, persons who use psychoactive substances during or before sex must consider whether individuals using the substance and their mates could have safe and consenting sex. Because cannabis may impair a woman's capacity to make an informed decision regarding contraception or her ability to provide her permission, women should avoid using any products that include psychoactive ingredients or, if they must, enhance their safety by having intercourse with someone they can trust.

Cannabis Delivery Method

Smoking marijuana or vaping oil should be avoided, according to specialists, since it might injure the lungs. The most recommended method is using tinctures, which are concentrated cannabis extracts that are orally taken; because you know how many milligrams you need, it is simple to calculate the dosage. Smoking is hard to determine the amount needed, or if you prefer smoking, it's recommended that you take one very deep and slow inhalation. In this way, one can avoid overconsumption.

 Know That Libido is Affected By Several Factors

One's sex life and sexual performance may be affected by several variables, some of which can be treated by a medical or mental health professional. For example, you'd require an assessment from a doctor if you were experiencing discomfort during intercourse. Cannabis may be able to alleviate some of the symptoms, but there is a lot more to consider in anybody who is suffering discomfort. Treating the symptom simultaneously as looking at the root of the problem is possible.

Consider choosing the right strain.

There is disagreement among experts about the significance of strains in terms of their impacts. Although strains may influence sexual preferences, they do not guarantee them. Aroma and taste are attributed to the plant components terpenes. A cannabis plant's terpenes are responsible for its distinct aromas, such as the diesel in certain strains and the lemon in others. There is some evidence that terpenes influence the various effects of marijuana, although researchers are still studying the exact mechanism. If you want to increase your sexual desire, experts suggest strains like Wedding Cake and Do-Si-Dos with high concentrations of terpene limonene. Certain strains of marijuana have been shown to enhance tactile sensations and improve sensitivity to touch. As you and your relationship are unique, so are the strains that work best for you and your loved one's bodies. Both strains are Indica-dominant hybrids with high THC levels that start with a warm, euphoric high before fading into a sedative haze.

Bottom Line

Cannabis is a hallucinogenic substance that affects individuals differently. Starting low and slow and taking basic safety measures is essential for those who never have. First, therapists recommend that you experiment with cannabis on your own. Everything you need to know about using cannabis for sex is that your first experience should be through masturbation. To avoid unpleasant surprises later, you should experiment alone to see how cannabis affects your mood, arousal, and orgasm if you have never used the chemical before. Be clear about your limits and ask for permission before using any drug to improve a sexual encounter with another person. It's also critical to distinguish between using cannabis to improve your sexual experience and addressing a diagnosable sexual disorder, a component that the study hasn't yet uncovered.
