If you are looking for something to spice up things in the bedroom then cannabis might just do the trick. It is hard to say which strains are better for arousal than others. Everyone reacts differently to individual strains and we also know that everyone reacts differently in the bedroom.
However, there are certain strains that are considered famous in the weed world for helping to ignite feelings of intimacy and arousal.
How can weed help with arousal?
Weed has been used as an aphrodisiac worldwide for thousands of years. The Indian Ayurvedic philosophy of medicine establishes cannabis as a key component to their tantric sex rituals. Some nations like Uganda, use cannabis for erectile dysfunction.
Legend has it that weed will increase the intensity of an orgasm in women, decrease sexual anxieties and increase the body’s sensitivity; making intimate sensations extraordinary. Other cannabis enthusiasts suggest that weed helps deactivate the areas of the brain that control stress and anxiety, which would surely help heighten the experience.
First, when you go about choosing a particular cannabis strain to increase arousal, you should determine your preferences for sativas, indicas, or hybrids. Sativas should work to open the mind to new sexual inclinations. Indicas, on the other hand, should increase your sensitivity to touch.
Let us examine 8 different strains that are notorious for igniting feelings of arousal.
Strain 1: Ultimate Trainwreck
Ultimate Trainwreck is a cousin of the famous weed strain, Trainwreck, except it was bred to be far more potent.
This sativa-dominant (80 percent) strain induces strong feelings of euphoria and focus. It is no slouch either as users generally report an increase in energy. With all those things combined, this strain surely can make for a good aphrodisiac.
The euphoria and focus will also encourage feelings of confidence which should generally help in social situations.
The taste profile is slightly sweet and herbaceous. After smoking this strain, you may quickly become ready for some action. Afterward, the strain should have a nice, mellow come-down that will allow you to get a good night’s rest.
Strain 2: Afghani Yumboldt
For as good as this strain is, unfortunately, it is a hard one to find. Also referred to as Yumboldt Kush, it is indica-dominant (70 percent) with a moderately high THC content of 19 percent. This potency will help induce some real nice feelings in the body.
This indica will eventually make you feel sedated so it is crucial not to wait long before getting snuggly with your partner. Otherwise, you might wake up and it will be the next day.
The warm sensation this strain provides is all the reason why it is commonly recommended for those who seek added intimacy with a partner. Luckily, the high is so smooth that you will not need to worry about becoming overly self-conscious while making love. Afghani Yumboldt is also a great pain reliever that has a spicy and robust taste almost like a complex bottle of wine.
Strain 3: Green Crack
If you want to have some good loving all night long then look no further than the strain, Greek Crack. As the name suggests, it is a very energetic strain that also encourages strong feelings of euphoria.
Green Crack is one of the more popular sativas available. The energy it provides for love-making also comes with an added boost of creativity for some extra special foreplay.
The negative aspect of this strain is that it is hard to sleep shortly after smoking it.
Strain 4: Atomic Northern Lights
Some stoners will go as far as to say that Atomic Northern Lights works better at arousal than Viagra. If true then this strain is perfect for this list. A cross of Afghani, Thai Haze, and Northern Lights, this weed has a delicately sweet taste and gives a bundle of energy to users. It is not a common strain and therefore not easy to find.
If you are lucky enough to find it, then grab some and run right home to your partner.
Along with a boost of energy, this strain should help you to find the confidence to meet new people and engage with them happily.
Strain 5: Hindu Skunk
This indica-dominant strain (70 percent) is a cross of Hindu Kush and Skunk #1. The result is a very potent strain listed at a whopping 23 percent THC.
It is indica-dominant which suggests a relaxing strain but it is surprisingly energetic as well. When you combine those two effects then you got an ideal strain for some intimacy.
If you are out and about then this strain should help with social confidence. That confidence may lead to some much-wanted attention.
After the uplifting effects fade, you will become very lethargic, so make sure to do the deed within a couple of hours of smoking it. Hindu Skunk has tasty tropical fruit notes and the smell is quite enjoyable.
Strain 6: Green Goddess
Another indica-dominant strain (70 percent) clocking in at 18 percent THC. The high is a slow build-up of mental stimulation that leads to a nice calm, relaxation. All of which makes for a perfect combination for arousal. After you engage with your partner, your body will be left buzzing with joy and satisfaction.
This body buzz fades away to that nice calm which then leads to a night of blissful sleep.
Strain 7: Alice in Wonderland
As the name suggests, this strain is very cerebral and trippy. Alice in Wonderland is an 85 percent sativa that holds a THC content of 23 percent. It offers an intense increase in imagination along with euphoria.
This burst of imagination translates perfectly to the bedroom. With the potency being so high, it is recommended to start with only a couple of hits before getting lost in your partner’s eyes.
Strain 8: Sour Diesel
Perhaps the most famous sativa of all time, Sour Diesel is a cross between ChemDog 91 and Super Skunk. It contains around 18 percent of THC, making it a nice strong but moderate strain.
Your senses will be fully engaged and your body will be buzzing to the touch. If the conditions are right, then Sour Diesel will surely introduce some long-lasting arousal.
