How Does Cannabis Affect Sex

How Does Cannabis Affect Sex

As early as the seventh century India cannabis was used as a prelude to spiritual tantric sex rituals, and even today cannabis consumers say that the use of the plant improves their sex life. We asked ourselves, “I wonder what science has to say on the subject?” And after we checked, here we are running to tell the guys.

Cannabis users have more sex

A 2017 U.S. study examined data among 50,000 participants. These were asked about their sex habits, in order to test whether cannabis use was related to the frequency with which people had sex.
The results of the study showed unequivocal conclusions: those who used cannabis had sex more often than those who did not, and this is true for both men and women, in all demographic groups surveyed, and all tested. In addition, the study also found that cannabis use is unlikely to impair sexual function.

Women who use cannabis reach better orgasms

Another American study, this time from 2019, highlighted the link between cannabis and orgasms in women. In this study, the researchers surveyed 373 women and found that 127 of them, who used cannabis before having sex, achieved an adequate orgasm in a much higher percentage than those who did not use cannabis.
Cannabis users experienced orgasms at a rate 2.13 times higher than those who did not consume cannabis, and if that did not “satisfy” the women who used cannabis more frequently reached orgasm at a rate that was 2.10 times higher than those who used it only occasionally. Why does cannabis actually contribute to a good orgasm? 

Cannabis is associated with better sexual health in women

Another good news for fair sex girls was found in a 2020 study, in which 452 women were surveyed, who answered a survey that examined the relationship between its use and sexual health. The survey included questions about desire to have sex, orgasms, arousal, pain and other factors, which measure sexual health among women.

As per the outcomes, ladies who utilized cannabis for the most part replied with higher-esteem answers in regards to sexual wellbeing measurements than the individuals who didn’t utilize cannabis, particularly with regards to sexual longing and excitement, climaxes, and generally speaking fulfillment with sexual coexistence. By chance, the investigation occurred paying little mind to the kind of cannabis utilized by the respondents, how it was devoured or the justification its utilization.

Different examinations likewise support the case that ladies who devour cannabis have better sexual wellbeing. Accordingly, for instance, an investigation directed in 2017 proposed that cannabis use is related with a higher sexual desire in ladies, just as in any event torment during intercourse.

The examination took a gander at 289 ladies who had utilized cannabis before intercourse, who reacted to an overview that took a gander at how cannabis changed their sexual encounters. 60% of ladies revealed that cannabis expands their drive, and of the individuals who announced torment during intercourse, 77% said cannabis utilization decreased the torment. As in past examinations noted here, this investigation additionally found that cannabis use is related with an improved climax in ladies.

Cannabis may improve erectile function in men (but further research is needed)


After we have gotten done with the more pleasant sex, we will inspect the less wonderful species, wherein the association between better sexual wellbeing and cannabis use really appears to be less clear and self-evident.

A recent report explored writing and past examinations on cannabis and sexual capacity in men, and discovered blended outcomes. While a few examinations have shown negative consequences for male sexual wellbeing, like trouble in arriving at climax, others have discovered beneficial outcomes and study creators have even inferred that cannabis may improve erectile capacity. In an intriguing case from 2020, analysts asserted that cannabis was the one that caused an “ceaseless erection” – a marvel that could be perilous. All things considered, given the moderately modest number of studies inspected and the way that no review was directed among men here, it is critical to say that further exploration ought to be led regarding the matter. Are there volunteers?
