As many of you know from personal experience, lighting up a joint before bed can often lead to things heating up in the bedroom. However, your favorite bud might not actually be your best bud when it comes to helping you perform. Some evidence suggests that cannabis can do wonders for your sex life, but is this all just smoke and mirrors?
What Can Cannabis Do For Me?
As with many of the effects of cannabis, your experience is uniquely personal. Not everyone who uses marijuana becomes wildly passionate; many people don’t want any sexual contact while under the influence and would rather find themselves absorbed in a book or hobby. Everyone’s chemical make-up is unique and these differences impact the drug’s effects on the user.
While a lot is left up to chance and circumstance, the effects can be somewhat controlled by paying attention to the strains you’re indulging in. Cannabis can be divided into two categories (if you didn’t already know): cannabis sativa and cannabis indica. The latter is best if you’re spending the evening watching a romantic movie or cuddling in a hot tub. Cannabis sativa, however, can perk you up with feelings of euphoria and (sometimes) sexual desire.
