For most people who are fond of cannabis, weed is considered a powerfully magical aphrodisiac.
While some scientific studies directly deal with the complex relationship between weed and sex, this area of research continues to be inconclusive, as studies tend to produce differing results.
The biggest caveat of studying the intricate relationship between weed and sex is that sexual arousal is quite difficult to measure, as it’s extremely complex in itself and greatly differs from person to person.
The relationship between weed and sex is complex, and still quite unknown.
One thing is certain, the effects of cannabis on sex are tightly connected to THC’s psychoactive effects on our senses, also aided by a temporary spike in dopamine levels, which is capable of increasing the intensity of perceived pleasure.
The psychoactive effects of cannabis can also lower our inhibitions, and this could lead to trying out new things in the bedroom, and the atypical thought patterns while we’re high can result in a highly creative sexual encounter.
Of course, cannabis can also help us unwind and relax after an intense sexual experience.
It’s important to point out that some people simply don’t enjoy high sex, as cannabis interferes with their libido, makes them feel anxious, paranoid or just sleepy.
The quantity of consumed cannabis can naturally be a deciding factor, so it’s essential to have a clear picture of how different cannabis products affect you personally, before trying to implement them in the bedroom.
How to Best Use Cannabis in Lovemaking?
If you’re looking to spice up your Valentine’s Day with some herbal delight, here are some of the best ways to incorporate cannabis in your lovemaking session.
1. Vaping or Smoking Beforehand
Vaping and smoking weed are always a popular choice as they’re super easy to execute, and the effects of these consumption methods are almost immediate, so you’ll be ready to go in no time.
What’s important to consider with vaping/smoking is, of course, the type of cannabis you’re going to consume.
It’s always advisable to experiment with various strains prior to the actual lovemaking, just so you can have a better understanding of what suits you personally.
Always bare in mind that you should try the strain out prior to your weed and sex session.
Another thing to consider is that you might want to have some lubrication handy, as cannabis doesn’t only produce dry mouth, but can also interfere with the lubrication of the nether regions.
Finally, getting too high for high sex isn’t really something you want to do, since being too high can hinder your presence and make you feel displaced from all the action.
2. Cannabis Bath Bombs
Since cannabis-infused bath bombs are topical products, they are generally incapable of producing any psychoactive effects, and only produce a soothing bodily sensation.
But, if you’re planning on using bath bombs that contain THC, it’s important to point out that THC can sometimes enter the bloodstream (and create psychoactive effects) through the vaginal membrane.
The chances of THC reaching the membrane are significantly higher if you’re planning on getting busy while in the bathtub, so that’s definitely something to keep in mind.
3. Weed-Infused Chocolate
Chocolate and Valentine’s go hand in hand, and if you really want to kick it up a notch, it’s definitely a good idea to add some THC into the mix.
Cannabis-infused chocolate (just like all other edibles) require a bit more planning compared to smoking or vaping, since they take longer to start working.
A great thing about edibles is that their effects are significantly prolonged (at least 3+ hours), so they undoubtedly leave enough room for all kinds of foreplay.
The most important thing to consider when consuming edibles is to get the dosage correctly, and to give the edible adequate time to start working.
If you’re new to edibles make sure not to take more than 5mg of THC at once, and give the edible at least two hours time to start working, before you think about consuming any more.
4. Canna-Infused Oil Massage
Cannabis-infused massage oils (like other topicals) cannot induce a high, unless they’re directly applied to the intimate zones of the body.
So, unless you’re planning on giving your partner a particularly naughty massage for Valentine’s Day, you might want to implement another consumption method (like vaping or edibles) to go along with your sensual massage.
5. Mocktails With Cannabis Tinctures
When making alcohol-free mocktails with cannabis tinctures, it’s essential to try and match the flavor of the tincture with the mocktail that you’re planning to make.
For instance, a citrus-flavored tincture goes great with mocktails like Old Fashioned or Orange Creamsicle, while tinctures with an overtly herbal flavor go better with a virgin Mojito or a Rosemary Fizz.
Cannabis mocktails, the same as other cannabis infused drinks, take longer to kick in.
Since cannabis-infused mocktails have to pass through our digestive system in order to produce psychoactive effects, you need to give them an adequate amount of time to begin working (at least an hour and a half).
Such mocktails will also have a prolonged duration of effects, just like edibles and other cannabis-infused beverages, and it’s important to dose them properly, approximately 5mg of THC for beginners).
We offer quality cannabis experiences through education, curated selection, elevated environments and inspiring stories.
It all started in 1979 on a small Hawaiian island, with a group of promising students and athletes that would hang out after school, riding in a Volkswagen van.
This group of friends loved to indulge in Pakalolo (noun: the Hawaiian word for cannabis) – or as locals called it: Choom. They named themselves the “Choom Gang” and would go on to influence our world as successful lawyers, entrepreneurs, and even the 44th president of the United States.
But back then, it was never about the future, it was about good people sparking ideas, sharing adventures, and cultivating good times.
1. Please consume responsibly.
2. When canning any food at home (e.g. cannabutter or canna-oil) you should be very careful since there can be a risk of the appearance of toxin that can lead to botulism, a very serious illness. This happens when food is canned, processed, stored or handled. Bacteria that cause botulism can very quickly grow in cannabis edibles that are made at home. Bacteria can cause botulism poisoning which is a very serious illness that affects the body’s nerves and produces serious health consequences.
