Disclaimer: While cannabis may enhance your sex life, it may not be for everyone, so make sure to do your own research and consult with a healthcare provider before trying it. It's worth noting that research in this area is limited and more studies are needed to fully understand the potential effects of THC and CBD on sexual function, however in my personal experience, cannabis can improve sexual function, and with a little help from sex toys, you can enhance the experience even further.
THC vs. CBD
First things first--THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are two of the most well-known compounds found in the cannabis plant. Although they both come from the same plant, they have very different effects on the body and brain.
THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis, which means it can produce a "high" or altered state of consciousness when ingested or smoked. THC works by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the brain, which can result in a range of effects including relaxation, euphoria, altered perception, and impaired memory and coordination.
CBD, on the other hand, is not psychoactive and does not produce a "high." Instead, it has been found to have a range of potential health benefits, including reducing anxiety, inflammation, and pain. CBD works by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which helps to regulate a wide range of bodily functions such as sleep, mood, and appetite.
As for their effect on sexual pleasure, some studies suggest that THC may enhance sexual pleasure by increasing arousal and reducing inhibition, while CBD may have a more calming effect and may help to reduce anxiety and stress, which could in turn improve sexual function. Ultimately, the impact of these compounds on sexual pleasure is likely to vary from person to person, depending on factors such as their individual physiology, dose, and mode of consumption. I prefer a 1:1 ratio for this use, which means that your cannabis product contains (ideally) an equal amount of THC to CBD.
Cannabis & Sexual Function
Cannabis can help relax the mind and body, making it easier to let go of any inhibitions and get into the moment. It can also increase sensitivity and heighten sensations, making sex feel even more pleasurable. So, how can you incorporate cannabis into your sex life? One way is to smoke or vape a strain that's known for its aphrodisiac properties. Some strains that are said to enhance sexual experiences include Maui Wowie, Blue Dream, and Sour Diesel. Alternatively, you can try using a cannabis-infused lubricant or massage oil, which can enhance sensations and increase blood flow to the genitals. Just make sure to use a product that's specifically designed for sexual use, and start with a small amount to see how it affects you.
Cannabis & Sex Toys
Now, let's talk about sex toys. While they may not be everyone's cup of tea, they can be a great way to spice things up in the bedroom and explore new sensations. One toy that's an especially popular pairing with weed-lovers is the Strawberry Emojibator. These vibrators are designed to look like an adorable strawberry and are made with body-safe materials. Another toy to consider is the Candle Wand. The Candle has a heating element on the bottom that can be used to ease tension during a mood-setting massage and play with sensual touch. Make sure to choose a toy that feels comfortable and pleasurable for you and your partner, and always communicate about your likes, dislikes, and boundaries.
Here are some cheeky expert tips for incorporating cannabis and sex toys into your sex life:
Start with a low dose: When it comes to cannabis, less is often more. Start with a small amount and see how your body reacts before increasing your dose. Remember that everyone's tolerance is different, so what works for one person may not work for another.
Experiment with different strains: Different strains of cannabis can have different effects on the body. Some strains may be more energizing, while others may be more relaxing. Experiment with different strains to see what works best for you.
Use cannabis-infused lubricants: Cannabis-infused lubricants can enhance sensitivity and make sex feel even more pleasurable. They can also help with pain and discomfort during intercourse.
Try sex toys: Sex toys can add a new level of excitement to your sex life. From vibrators to butt plugs to bondage rope, there are a wide variety of toys to choose from. Start with something simple and work your way up to more advanced toys.
Combine cannabis and sex toys: For the ultimate sexual experience, combine cannabis and sex toys. Use a cannabis-infused lubricant while using a vibrator or dildo for an intense and unforgettable experience.
Remember to always be willing to engage in open communication about boundaries and expectations. Prioritize your safety and pleasure when experimenting with cannabis and sex toys. Happy exploring and happy 420!
