Can cannabis improve your sex life?
Cannabis use has a surprising number of benefits, including stress relief and pain management. But there may be another potential upside to using cannabis products that is, thus far, little discussed: improving a person’s sex life.
Not much research has been done in the field, but a 2023 study published in the Journal of Cannabis Research examined the perceived influence of cannabis on sexual functioning and satisfaction. Amanda Moser, one of the study’s authors and a research compliance coordinator at the University of Denver, tells Yahoo Life, “The influence cannabis has on sex has not been widely researched — this is a main reason why I decided to conduct a nationwide study on its effects on sexual functioning and satisfaction. Anecdotally, there have been many personal accounts of cannabis enhancing sex, without the scientific evidence to back it up.”
The results of the study revealed that there’s a connection between using cannabis products and having a more satisfying sexual experience, with more than 70% of the participants reporting increased desire and orgasm intensity.
What Moser discovered, she says, is that there are multiple ways in which cannabis can improve a person’s sex life. It can make you more interested in having sex — “some concentrates can have an aphrodisiac effect,” she notes — as well as make it easier to orgasm and allow someone to achieve more intense orgasms. For women, that can include multiple orgasms and “overall greater pleasure and satisfaction” for all.
