Here Are The Cannabis Strains To Smoke If You’re Looking To Enhance Sex

Is the whole “sex is better with cannabis” thing legit? Or is it just something that stoners tout as yet another benefit of their great green goddess? The short answer is that cannabis can make good sex even better. It makes music sound better, food taste more delicious, and Thanksgiving a way more interesting experience, so why would this sensually-driven experience be different? If anecdotal experience isn’t enough for you, there are some studies out there for you science nerds that suggest that cannabis does, in fact, make sex a more pleasurable experience and that stoners may be having more sex than their non-stoned counterparts.

According to Psychology Today, researchers at Missouri’s St. Louis University conducted two separate surveys of 133 and 289 adult women and found that in both studies women reported their experiences with cannabis and sex as enhancing to both their libidos and the quality of their pleasure. While a larger study, including data from 28,176 women and 22,943 men conducted by researchers at Stanford, didn’t inquire whether cannabis use increased the pleasure users experienced during sex, it did find those cannabis users we’re having more sex than their non-cannabis smoking counterparts, with a 22% increase for men and a 34% increase in women. Weed, unlike booze, doesn’t numb you out or dry you up. Instead, THC makes you more aware of your senses, which perfect if you’re having sex.

So which strains are the best to smoke before getting down? Before we get into those, let’s dispel a big myth here — there isn’t a single strain of weed out there that is proven to increase your libido or “put you in the mood.” That simply doesn’t exist, and anyone who is trying to tell you otherwise is bullshitting. Cannabis doesn’t work that way. Instead, what you should keep in mind when shopping for a cannabis strain to bring into the bedroom is what type of experience you’re looking for.

Which brings us to…

Choosing The Right Strain

It’s important to be honest with yourself. If you’re feeling anxious try reaching for a strain with a high CBD content, if you’re looking for a spark of creativity and energy, go for a Sativa. If you’re looking to increase the sensory experience, an Indica will serve you well. If you want the energy and the pleasure enhancement, go for a hybrid. It’s important to find a strain that is going to work with the mood you’re trying to set or the headspace you need to get into. You may even find that you and your partner would be better off smoking entirely different strains depending on your role that night in the bedroom. The only thing you really need to worry about is someone getting too high — which can increase sedation, paranoia, and, frankly, make you too lazy to want to have sex. So if you’re using cannabis to enhance your sexual experiences, limit yourself to one to three hits just before the clothes hit the floor.

To help get you started on a sex-cannabis exploration, we selected a mix of 10 Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid strains that will help set the mood in just a few hits, with a focus on strains that smell and taste as good as the sex you’re about to have.

These 10 cannabis strains will heighten your sensations, free your mind, and level up your sex life.

Is cannabis really a hallucinogen and can it make you see stuff?

Technically, weed does qualify as a hallucinogen. But it also qualifies as a stimulant and a depressant, which is why you will hear anecdotal tales describing the effects of getting stoned as running the gamut from sleepiness to creative outbursts to paranoia. Cannabis can actually cause your pupils to dilate, and some folks have reported feeling small changes in the muscles around their eyes; both of these conditions can lead to actual visual distortions. But the truth of the matter is, no, cannabis cannot make you see visions the way LSD, mushrooms, or DMT can.

However, hallucinogens don’t necessarily need to cause full-blown visions to qualify as a hallucinogen. Other effects of this drug family are an altered sense of time and space, increased heart rate, loss of control over motor skills, dry mouth, and detachment from the self or environment. And if you have ever dabbed, taken an excellent rip off a bong, or even just smoked some weed that was profoundly stronger than your usual stuff, that short list of symptoms probably sounds familiar.

Any strain of weed that comes in at over 18 percent THC is thought to be more likely to induce the conditions listed above. Here in Washington state, you will be hard-pressed to find strains in shops that are less than 18 percent (in other words, WA stoners are always kinda trippin’…). So let’s review a few strains that really can send you off into space.

Girl Scout Cookies One of the commoner and more notorious strains out there today. This hybrid strain is a blend of Durban Poison and OG Kush. It smells and tastes like a traditional indica, but with the creative spark and imagination-stirring properties of a sativa. Official records clock GSC at averaging 18 to 20 percent THC, but the last several packages I’ve bought have been 31.5 percent THC. Now I have never “tripped” on GSC, but I have definitely lost track of time and come out of a wormhole several bags of chips later.

Ghost OG Some folks pass this off as just another variation of OG Kush, but there is something special about this strain. Fairly standard here on the West Coast but hard to find elsewhere, this indica-dominant strain features the signature couch-lock and detachment of an indica, as well as its delicious flavors and scent. This strain consistently tests for no less than 28 percent THC, and when you find it in stores, it’s often significantly more. The last time I smoked this, I binge-watched X-Files and legit thought it was 1995 for about half a day.

Kilimanjaro Named for the tallest peak in Africa, this sativa sets the bar quite high. Originating in Tanzania, this landrace strain became incredibly popular in Europe before taking off in North America. (side note: a “landrace strain” is a strain of cannabis that is indigenous, original, or otherwise naturally occurring. Landrace strains create the body of strains that hybrids come from.) It packs a wallop with at least 26 percent THC on almost all flowers tested and is consistently one of the most potent strains available in Canada. The flavors are bright, fresh, and citrusy, and the high is a classic, stimulating, energetic burst of creativity, just like most sativas. It will have you blessing the rains down in Africa.

Any strain with over 18 percent THC is thought to be more likely to induce these conditions.
