Is Weed an Aphrodisiac: All You Need to Know


Many people turn to cannabis to heighten their sexual pleasure. But what exactly is the link between marijuana and sexual pleasure? Is the idea that marijuana can improve ones sex- life a reality, or is this merely a myth?


The way cannabis is regarded has changed tremendously over the past couple of decades, especially in the United States. Long gone are the days when marijuana was looked at as a core element of hippie counterculture or a recreational drug for individuals who have chosen to travel down the wrong path of life. 


Now legal in several U.S. states and several countries across the globe, the public image of Marijuana has been changing. Marijuana is now broadly accepted as a recreational drug with less detriment to your health than drinking. Cannabis is also used more and more as a medicine to address various aches and ailments, disorders, and in some states and countries, used in the fight against cancer. 


But over the last few years alone, people have been hitting their local dispensaries in search of the magical herb that will help them achieve a colorful, pleasurable sex life. You see, marijuana enables you to reach a state of calm, both mentally and physically.  For most cannabis users, the plant, when smoked or ingested, aids in diminishing bouts of self-consciousness, anxiety, depression, and everyday stresses. Cannabis is also known to up-lift your mood and, in some strains, provide energy to those in need of a pick-me-up. All of these benefits make it easy to understand why ganja can play the role of a superhero in your bed. It lowers your inhibitions and gives space for you to accept yourself, your partner, and the moment and enjoy a heightened sense of self and relaxation. 

Scientific Point of View

Does weed make girls horny?

Does it affect male libido? Although doctors and scientists can not verify that this is true for all people, they are open in stating that it is true for many.

According to sex therapist Amanda Pasciucco, Connecticut, “Those who use marijuana may have more sex because they put less pressure on themselves while they are high, so they don’t have the same performance anxiety as those who are sober. A fair bit of marijuana may also improve your partner’s capacity to understand your preferences.”


In 2017 the Journal of Sexual Medicine (JSM) published a study made up of a survey of male and female marijuana users across the United States titled The Association Between Marijuana Use and Sexual Frequency in the United States: A Population-Based Study. According to the study, marijuana usage “does not appear to impair sexual function and is independently related with greater sexual frequency.” Everyday cannabis users reported having 20% more sex than non-users across all demographic categories.

Dosage and Usage are Important
