These are the best cannabis strains for sex.


Have you ever blazed a bowl before making love? If not, you’re missing out! Humanity has invoked cannabis for its aphrodisiac properties for thousands of years, and the herb continues to keep sex exciting and passionate to this day.

As you’re most likely aware, different strains produce very different effects. Some varieties will leave you ready to embrace your partner, while others will have you craving solitude, music, and food. If you’re looking for a sexual kick, you’ll need to choose your strain wisely.


Before we dive into which strains work best for the job, you should consider these crucial tips and watch-outs:

Don’t smoke too much: As you might imagine, the more stoned you get, the less functional you become. And yes, that means during sex as well. Practise moderation.

Safety first: Just like alcohol, cannabis can lower your inhibitions and cause users to engage in high-risk behaviour, albeit not as risky as with other substances. Make sure to be safe and prepared by using some form of protection against pregnancy and STDs. And, as always, prioritise consent.

Do a trial run: Try out the strain pre-sex to ensure you picked the right one. It’s good to at least have a general idea of how you’ll react to a new strain or method of consumption. It’s not very sexy to feel paranoid, dizzy, or couch-locked.

Dryness: Ladies, cannabis can sometimes cause dryness of the mucous membranes, and that includes the vagina. So make sure to keep some lube and/or a water bottle nearby.

Check out the cultivars mentioned below to tailor your experience to you and your partner’s desires.


People figured out that weed can enhance sexual pleasure a long time ago. The Hindu tradition of tantra incorporated the herb into an array of sexual positions and practices as a means of achieving spiritual awakening. Modern science has also looked into the idea of cannabis as an aphrodisiac.

While the research remains limited, a 2017 study[1] out of Stanford University School of Medicine found that cannabis smokers tend to engage in a lot of sex.

Of course, correlation doesn’t equal causation, but the survey of over 50,000 found that cannabis use doesn’t appear to impair sexual performance or the desire to engage in intercourse. Quite the opposite; it appears to increase sexual activity!

Older data[2] also supports these findings. Surveys dating back to the 1970s found cannabis users to report increased sexual desire, sexual enjoyment, and feelings of pleasure and satisfaction.

We don’t currently know why cannabis appears to boost sexual desire in some people. From an anecdotal perspective, however, most smokers realise that cannabis enhances sensory pleasure, making everything from music to sex feel more divine.



Terpenes play a major role in the type of high you'll experience from a particular strain. THC underpins the psychoactive effect, but specific terpene profiles determine the nuances of each experience.

The entourage effect[3] explains how cannabinoids and terpenes work together to enhance each other’s effects. Terpenes such as myrcene provide more of a relaxing effect, whereas limonene refreshes and energises.


Every woman has different sexual preferences. That said, strains that energise without being too cerebral hit the sweet spot for most ladies. Excitement and euphoria can get the libido going while chilling out the nerves.

Some women also enjoy strains that enhance their sensitivity to touch. These body-centric strains tend to be a little more on the sensual and smooth side, and can help you really get into the romantic mood.


More romantic men will probably want a similarly relaxing strain as the ladies. To help them get into their rhythm, however, more stimulating strains will provide adequate energy for when the mood is right.

Fear and pressure can quickly kill sex for man. Performance anxiety can make it difficult for men to achieve and maintain an erection. This state of mind can also make them finish way before they’ve satisfied their partner. Most of the strains below contain cannabinoids and terpenes to ease both mind and body.


Cannabis strains generally exist as either indica-dominant or sativa-dominant varieties, with some strains being a perfect balance of the two. Indica cultivars are typically dominant in terpenes that inspire sleepy, relaxing, and stoning sensations. In contrast, the chemical constituents in sativa varieties usually provide a buzzing, energetic, and cerebral lift.

If you’re in the mood for intimate romance, perhaps select an indica-dominant strain. If you and your partner fancy a proper workout, sativa strains will rise to the occasion.


The five strains below work wonders before jumping into bed. Each one offers something slightly different depending on your mood, desires, and needs.
