Find Out If Cannabis Could Potentially Increase Your Sex Drive

Find Out If Cannabis Could Potentially Increase Your Sex Drive

Cannabis has seen calculable praise over the years as being a potentially “cure-all” medicine that is good for just about anything. These days, you’ll find cannabis products you’d never expect to be infused with THC and/or CBD. We use cannabis to treat cancer, as well as other severe diseases such as Chrons and Epilepsy. It’s no surprise that we’ve only become more curious over time about what all cannabis can benefit. So naturally, the question ends up arising—can cannabis increase your sex drive?

At some point in time, you’ve heard both sides of the story. Some will say that they were “too high” and couldn’t sexually perform and fell asleep. Others will say that the sometimes euphoric highs that cannabis may bring on really activates their inner lust. Cannabis has the ability to interact with endocannabinoid receptors all over your body to produce unique effects with each strain. So, it leaves us begging the question of to what extent these receptors can potentially produce relaxing, stimulating, pain-relieving, or weighty effects. 

What Does “Sex Drive” Imply?

Sex drive implies a lot of different aspects of intimacy. It often refers to the carnal desire to engage in intercouse, and, especially among men, it depicts overall sexual potency. In many cultures, men will consume exotic foods because they believe it will increase their virility and overall sexual performance. What we’re really referring to here is the libido aka sex drive. Some research has shown both sides; cannabis enhancing the experience for some, while decreasing it for others.

The Psychological Relaxation Of Cannabis

As mentioned, we have endocannabinoid receptors all over our body that respond to each cannabis strain differently. The THC and terpenes work together to produce unique, strain-specific cerebral effects. Some terpenes such as beta-caryophyllene even interact with our endocannabinoid system directly to add even more potentially anti-inflammatory effects. 

It’s these types of effects that cannabis may have that might work towards more enjoyable sex. With the strong potential for psychological relaxation, cannabis may chill your body and mind out just enough to set the mood. Some terpenes such as limonene hold stress relieving qualities that might also boost your confidence and remove performance anxiety.

The Physically Relaxing Qualities Of Cannabis

Cannabis has shown strong potential to relieve muscle tension and high blood pressure, which may help bring back more sexual potency. Those under immense stress often find themselves shying away from or completely avoiding intimacy. There are a lot of topical cannabis products available these days ranging from muscle melting salves, to infused lubes meant directly for intimacy. CBD has also risen as a popular infusion into topicals to also potentially produce anti-inflammatory effects.

There is no conclusive evidence suggesting that cannabis can increase your sex drive. But, we do know that it has the ability to relax the body and stimulate the mind. We also know that it may severely reduce anxiety and paranoia. All of these things amount to potentially putting you in the right mental state to engage in passionate worry-free intimacy.
