There’s no lack of material on the benefits of dagga, some backed up by evidence and others not. Certain people even claim there’s nothing some ganja can’t fix. If it works or not, for almost any ailement you have, male or female, there seems to be a strain for that. A common problem a bit of dagga seems to be a solution for is unsatisfactory sexual experiences, most often among women.
One way these claims are being backed up is through a smart vibrator. Lioness has produced a vibrator that can measure, store, and display the user’s orgasms on a chart. Those who shared their reports show consistently stronger contractions that do not taper off at the end after smoking weed. However, these results were not the same when pure CBD products were used, suggesting that it is mainly THC that contributes to more satisfactory sex.
Several possible explanations exist for why dagga makes sex better. It might have to do with the fact that orgasms naturally release cannabinoids and low doses of marijuana may positively affect cannabinoid receptors throughout the body and brain. This has been shown to reduce anxiety and pain, common factors that interfere with arousal and orgasm.
The parts of the brain that THC positively affects for better sex includes:
- The thalamus – involved in arousal, desire, and which stimulates blood vessels in the reproductive system.
- The hypothalamic pituitary axis – controls testosterone, a hormone that affects your sex drive.
- Prefrontal cortex and hippocampus – provides that feeling of being more present, relaxed, sensitive and reactive to stimuli.
- The amygdala – lowers anxiety
Therefore THC’s effects on the brain put you in a more desirable state of mind for sex, making it easier to reach climax. Marijuana’s positive effects, especially the decrease in anxiety and increase in relaxation might prove beneficial to those for suffer from anxiety attached to sex, like that from sexual trauma or performance anxiety. But not all strains are made equal, and high THC strains might cause more paranoia for an already anxious person. In this case, a strain higher in CBD is suggested.
Sexxpot is a new strain which will supposedly help you reach mind-blowing orgasms, but if this seems too good to be true, it’s probably because it is. Theirs is no own strain fits all. Experts suggest some introspection to pinpoint problems that might keep you away from properly indulging in sex; is it pain, low libido, or anxiety?
Some experimentation to find the right strain might be needed to address the issues. Luckily there are some guidelines, like looking at the dominant natural compounds of each strain. Buds with a balanced THC and CBD index may allow for more intimate sex. Higher THC strains might be your go to if you’re looking for a hardcore, don’t-stop-now, pounding.
Other than the THC and CBD index, experts suggests considering terpenes, which are aromatic oils released from our beloved plant which also plays a role in the physical and psychoactive effects. Another recommendation is to experiment with your consumption methods and to perhaps start your experimentation solo.
Perhaps next time you make the beast with two backs, invite Mary Jane along to show you a proper good time ;)
