The Relationship between Cannabis and Sex.

With the legalization of marijuana occurring rapidly throughout the country, and each state deciding more eagerly that cannabis does have a lot of positive effects and outcomes, scientists and doctors are still trying to decide the relationship between cannabis and sex. Although research is still underway, there is enough evidence available to conclusively think about the positive effects cannabis may have on women’s libido and sexual encounters. 

At V for Vibes, we believe that empowered women have empowered sex – sex that is truly pleasurable, enjoyable, and relaxing for women instead of being a stressful and vulnerable act. Women who are empowered in life, through the community of women supporting them, are women who are able to make the decisions in their sex life as they do outside it – fun and empowered sex are all about those choices, right? So, if you’re wondering whether cannabis can help you achieve better sexual outcomes and increase your sex drive or affect your libido in other ways, look no further! 

We’re here to tell you that there are really good positive outcomes. Of course, with all things that affect the body in different ways, there are a few things to keep an eye out for when using cannabis for its effects on libido and sex drive. Here are a few things you should do when thinking about using cannabis for an improved sex life: 

The Dose Matters

While it is true that marijuana can have positive effects on women’s libido and sex drive, the dose which is ingested must be monitored. Like with other body and mind-altering substances, cannabis can have the effect of relaxing, loosening up your muscles, and allowing you to kick back and enjoy the sexual encounter you are about to get involved in, but it can also have some adverse effects if taken irresponsibly. 

Suppose you are new to this and want to just begin by experimenting. In that case, we recommend that you start with the smallest dose possible so that you are able to familiarize yourself with the feeling before jumping into higher doses and sexual encounters directly. This is also because part of a pleasurable sexual encounter is the establishing of a comfortable and safe environment where you do not feel threatened or in danger. The more control you have over the situation, the better! That said, sometimes we can get in our own heads and work ourselves up so much that our body needs a reset – a break and a gentle stepping back as you let yourself slow down a little bit and ease into the present moment to allow yourself to fully feel the vibes. Cannabis can be the perfect way to do that, especially if you tend to work in overdrive and be quite overwhelmed in this very fast-paced world. It can really help you shed the worries for a little bit and let you fully enjoy the pleasure you seek.

The Composition Matters 

There is quite a bit of discussion and debate around what the “good parts” of marijuana are – the general consensus is that two main compounds can be found in abundance in cannabinoids, THC, and CBD. While both compounds have varying effects on the body and can change your response to things in dramatically different ways, most people believe that a good concentration of both compounds can be the perfect mix to prepare for a sexual encounter that you’re going to enjoy more than you have ever had before! 

THC is responsible for the “feel-good” sensation – this is where the “high” kicks in, and you are able to feel pleasure in a more intense, heightened kind of way. Although not a lot of THC is prescribed in medical terms for its medicinal qualities, its counterpart CBD is. This is because CBD has several medicinal benefits, which can even make your sex life better! 

Compounds that are anti-inflammatory and help produce lubricants are present in CBD molecules that are really beneficial for sex. Anti-inflammatory properties allow your muscles to relax, loosen up, and physically feel that sensation of being calmed and relaxed. 

Along with this, the lubricants that can be produced in your vaginal canal aid sex and make it a more pleasurable experience for women – not only does it ensure that sex is a painless process (as it should be!), but it also allows you to enjoy the sexual encounter fully. A higher concentration of CBD might be exactly what you’re looking for if you find it difficult to ease up and relax during sex. Coupled with sex therapy, it might be the perfect solution to your sexual problems and might result in a better, happier relationship with your partner.

We suggest consulting with a specialist before choosing to consume cannabis for a heightened sexual experience, just to figure out what the composition and the dosage should be specifically for you. It can be one step towards finding out exactly what works for you and giving you a choice to decide how you experience sex and how much pleasure you get out of it.

What Are The Legal Consequences?

Of course, the topic of marijuana legalization has picked up pace in the past few years, with more and more states agreeing to legalize it rapidly. Not only for its medicinal benefits but also for its psychological and recreational effects where it can generally help you unwind and relax in a time when so many people desperately need to. 

We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and the world before us is rapidly changing, and cannabis can be a great resource for easing our anxieties about what comes next. With the right mix of THC and CBD, cannabis can be one way to deal with the regular issues of life, especially for women who already face disempowerment in the sexual sphere. Cannabis can help women have more and more liberated, pleasurable, and empowered sex. 

That said, it is still not legal in a few states, and it is always best to ensure the laws on this subject before choosing to consume it. This is simply so that you are not stressed and worried throughout the process of ingesting it, where you’re smoking it, or consuming it in the form of an edible. The mode of consumption may vary, and depending on it, the legality might shift from state to state. Perhaps quickly skimming over your state’s laws on the legality of marijuana is the safest way of ensuring that you are not violating any legal boundaries, thus avoiding legal consequences, and truly allowing you to chill out and feel the good vibes through your body as you enter into the wonderful mix of cannabis and sex! 

Who wants to be worried about getting arrested while they are trying to calm down, relax, and enjoy a sexy date night? The only way to avoid those stresses and worries and anxieties is to ensure that your state legally permits you to consume cannabis in the chosen form of delivery you have picked. 

Which brings us to the end of this article, where we’re telling you that cannabis can have really great outcomes for women seeking to have more empowered sex! Just make sure you’re doing it in a safe, legal way for you to get the most out of it, and enjoy the every moment of the process.
