Medical Marijuana and Sex: The Sensual Side of Cannabis

There is an inherently sensual side to cannabis that is often overlooked when evaluating the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant. Though it may not be discussed as frequently as other unique qualities, it is still exceptionally relevant as more studies are garnering an overwhelmingly positive response in regards to cannabis use and sexual health.

According to a survey conducted by The Journal of Sexual Medicine, many users reported that taking cannabis “increased their sensitivity to touch, improved their overall sexual arousal and enhanced their sexual function.” (2) The most apparent measured outcome is that the majority of users in each research study experienced an enhanced sexual experience with cannabis.

Ultimately our desire to feel a deeper connection is at the forefront of many of our minds. Building a connection rooted in actively remaining present and engaging in the moment will lead to an increase of serotonin levels and in many regards, increase our quality of life. Getting intimate with cannabis may not be for every couple but we’ve compiled a few items that might help you create a super special moment with that super special someone that is not only magical but unforgettable.
