How using cannabis for sex affects a woman’s orgasm

Researchers from the United States and the Netherlands have been interested in whether using cannabis for sex can affect a woman’s pleasure.

Turns out, there is a real connection! Cannabis not only improves your mood but also increases the orgasm of women by double.

New research has involved 373 women, both cannabis users, and non-cannabis users. Many of them used cannabis regularly, and some only before sex.

They confirmed that the sexual experience after using cannabis is twice as intense as usual.

Why is using cannabis for sex so stimulating?

Although they’ve been studying it for several years, scientists have not yet been able to pinpoint the exact cause of this phenomenon.

They do, however, have a simple explanation: using cannabis relieves stress which causes a woman to become more relaxed. 

In addition, using cannabis for sex dulls the sense of time, which prolongs the feeling of sexual pleasure. It also liberates the person, allowing them to experiment more freely.

Another reason is that after using cannabis, the sensitivity to smells increases and the perception of taste and tactile receptors increases. This heightens the sexual experience.

Experiencing new sexual emotions is an interesting experience, but the study reminds us that nothing can replace real feelings and experiences.

Marijuana use is increasing in the world

Over the last decade, marijuana use and it’s legalization, medically and recreationally, has continued to increase in the United States.

The internet is rife with claims of the beneficial effects of marijuana. This includes information on several aspects of sexual function including libido, arousal, and orgasm.

However, our scientific research on the effects of marijuana on sexual functioning has limits.

Recently self-reported sexual effects of marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol use in a small cohort of men and women aged 18–25 found that the majority of marijuana users reported an increase in sexual enjoyment and orgasm intensity, as well as either an increase or no change in desire.

Endocannabinoids, which are structurally similar to marijuana, helps regulate sexual function. The cannabinoid receptor has been mapped to several areas of the brain that play a role in sexual function.

Cannabinoids and endocannabinoids interact with the hormones and neurotransmitters that affect sexual behavior.

Although these interactions have not been clearly explained, some studies in rodents have helped to explain the relationship between cannabinoids and the hormones and neurotransmitters that affect sexual behavior.

Studies about using cannabis for sex

Although there is less data on human subjects, some studies have measured patient’s perceptions of the effects of marijuana on sexual function.

Studies have reported an increase in desire and improvement in the quality of orgasm.

Most recently, the researchers found the correlation between serum levels of 2 endogenous endocannabinoids. They found a significant negative correlation between endocannabinoids and both physiological and subjective arousal in women.

Drugs such as cannabis and ecstasy were more likely to improve the sexual experience than alcohol.

The primary aim of this study was to determine how women perceive the sexual experience. The study looked at overall sexual satisfaction, sex drive, orgasm, dyspareunia, and lubrication when using cannabis for sex.
