Given the taboo's that surround both sex and cannabis, it will come as no surprise that the two are often linked. Not always openly spoken about in many corners of society, there is conflicting information about the benefits of combining two very enjoyable experiences. More often than not research seems to suggest that cannabis consumed before sex, whether through food or smoked often has a detrimental effect. When combined with the notion that it all depends entirely on the strain you choose; the situation and the mood of the person themselves, suddenly adding your much-loved strain of cannabis to the mix might not be such a good idea after all.

With so much conflicting information as to whether combining the two is a help or hindrance, we will take a look at some of the most common ways cannabis can be enjoyed with a loved one as well as the effects it can have on those precious moments together.


Dinner Date

Cannabis has countless uses in sex other than simply smoking either before or even for the more risky approach, during your encounters. It can be used as a way to increase bonding time spent together, for example, why not prepare a romantic meal? Instead of garlic butter why don't you apply some homemade cannabutter to the mix, a simple and unobtrusive way of bringing cannabis to the table and you never know where dinner might lead!

Couch Date

Some indica heavy strains are known for their couch lock properties leaving you staring longingly into the distance, an activity that can also be shared with your partner. Take advantage of these body-heavy strains and spent the time in each other arms or looking into each others eyes as opposed to searching the cosmos.

Nature Date

Remember reading those lonely singles ad's about them enjoying long walks in the park as a means to show their sensitive side? Well, they could have just been a marijuana smoker. Schedule a date or walk in an area you both enjoy, ideally the woods or similar area of nature. This way you can both marvel at the beauty of you surroundings whilst high and take in the full spectrum of colours and sounds to be had.

Massage Date

The holy grail of dates. Let's be honest who doesn't enjoy a massage session, your already half way there with the usually distinct lack of clothes. Well, it turns out that cannabis users have hit the jackpot. It's claimed that the THC in cannabis can help to make female orgasms last 15 minutes, with the added benefit of being available in lubricant form. Whilst the effects are not guaranteed and vary depending on how you respond to cannabis, the process of applying the lubricant and its aromas are bound to do most of the work.

Now before you start jumping for joy at the revelation that two of your favourite activities just got better there are several caveats to this idealistic match. An individual's enjoyment of cannabis is all down to personal preference, affecting each person in different ways. Your favourite strain may not be the same as your partners. As well as a difference in strain preference the effects can vary and many users report a decrease in sexual desire whilst stoned, especially if choosing an indica heavy type of cannabis. Choosing a sativa heavy strain can also have detrimental effects. Despite the close physical contact of sex, THC rich strains can often distance couples mentally as their minds wonder.

Ultimately like all good things, too much of something can be a bad thing. With personal preference usually the determining factor in both activities. It is a case of experimentation and balance when trying to combine the two as well as the right circumstances. Just like smoking cannabis, sex is an activity all about the circumstance and mood your in at the time.
