Sex and cannabis. If you listen to Reefer Madness, you probably believe that just taking a toke or two off of a ‘marijuana cigarette’ will make you have sexual interactions with just about anyone. While there is entirely no truth to this, the relationship between sexual pleasure and cannabis is quite steamy.
According to a new study that was published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine there is now scientific evidence that taking a puff or two before you head to the bedroom could lead to a more satisfying experience.

The lead author of the study is Becky Lynn who is an associate professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the St Louis University. She stated the following regarding trends she has seen with patients utilizing cannabis to help with sexual related problems.
“I have seen it used in women with chronic pain disorders that lead to painful sex, women who experience difficulty with orgasm or an inability to orgasm, and women who use it to improve their libido, which may not match their partner’s libido.”
If you have not ever experienced sex while high on cannabis, do it! Not only do we recommend it, you just can’t deny science.
