Valentine’s Day is one of those days with a lot of hype. Reservations, flowers, chocolates, and teddy bears occupy our mind space for weeks as we try to create the perfect experience for that special person in our life.
What if there was a way to spice things up a bit and prevent your night from falling flat?
You’ve piqued my interest…keep talking.
Cannabis has a long association with sexual arousal. Although the bulk of the research relies on anecdotal, self-reported evidence, some pretty strong theories support the plant’s effect on love-making.
Humans have something called an endocannabinoid system full of cannabinoid receptors and is believed to be involved in a host of cognitive processes, including sexual arousal. One study found that after orgasm, “the plasma levels of the endocannabinoid 2-AG” significantly increased. If you recognize the term cannabinoid, you’re probably thinking of it in relation to two of the most prominent compounds (cannabinoids) of marijuana: THC and CBD.
As a combatant of inflammation and anxiety, cannabis also has the potential to “loosen you up” or put you in a relaxed state, making closeness, intimacy, and sex a more open and inclusive experience.
What to Know
If you’re a veteran cannabis user, you’re likely aware of the nuances associated with the plant. Different strains, consumption types, and varying other factors can make or break your experience.
If you want to use cannabis in the bedroom, it might be a good idea to try some self-love on your first go-around, just to find out what works best for you. You might find you like smoking a joint more than eating an edible. You might find that a specific strain agrees with you better in the bedroom. Maybe tincture is where it’s at for you. Whatever the case, knowing how your body reacts to strains, products, and consumption is the first step to an unforgettable night.
Without further ado
Now that we’re up to speed on cannabis and its connection to the hanky panky, here are some great products we recommend for your weekend.
