It is no secret that a dash of weed can spice things up in the bedroom. But to make a blanket statement about which bud is best for between the sheets is difficult. Since each sexual encounter is different, even with the same partner, it is always important to check your headspace and your heart before introducing cannabis into the situation.
With that said, there are still certain strains that are famous in the cannabis community for helping to induce effects relating to and enhancing arousal.
How can weed help with arousal?
Cannabis has actually been used to increase libido for thousands of years in other parts of the world. In fact, it is included in the Indian Ayurvedic philosophy of medicine and is a key part of tantric sex rituals. In nations such as Uganda, it has been a common treatment for sexual dysfunction for centuries.
Many people believe that cannabis can increase the strength of orgasm in women, decrease inhibitions and increase the body’s sensitivity so that physical sensations are enhanced. According to Ian Kerner, a popular American sex therapist, studies suggest that cannabis helps deactivate the parts of the brain that control stress and anxiety, which can help one better enjoy the experience.
When it comes to choosing the right weed strain to help you get aroused, it is crucial to find the right indica to sativa balance for you. While sativa opens the mind to new sexual possibilities, indica has been known to heighten your sensitivity to touch.
Let’s examine 8 different strains that are notorious for igniting feelings of arousal.
Strain 1: Ultimate Trainwreck
This is a sativa-dominant (80%) hybrid and is the cousin of the well known marijuana strain, Trainwreck. You can guess by the name that this is a far more potent version.
This strain will make you feel euphoric and energetic in a hurry, as well as enhancing your focus; Ultimate Trainwreck will help you get ready for some action.
The consequence is a reduced level of inhibition, as you feel genuinely happy. You may notice a feeling of light-headedness, but it is far from debilitating. Also, it could prove to be a very effective strain when you are trying to find the courage to chat someone up, as it helps you become more talkative.
As far as taste, there is a delicious sweet taste that emanates from Ultimate Trainwreck. Be warned, however: although this strain will help you with arousal, it eventually results in a more sedated, low-energy high. We recommend taking Ultimate Trainwreck just before intimacy because it will help you out and ensure a good night’s sleep afterward.
Strain 2: Afghani Yumboldt
The main downside to this marijuana strain is its rarity. Also known as Yumboldt Kush, it is an indica dominant hybrid (70%) with a THC content of 19%. It is definitely potent enough to give you an intense body buzz over the course of time.
However, it is a slow-acting high which creeps up on you and eventually makes you feel somewhat lethargic. Before this final effect, however, Yumboldt will help you relax and get cozy with your partner.
This strain is arguably a good option if you are planning to cuddle with your loved one because of the warm sensation it provides. As well as providing you with a smooth and mellow high, Yumboldt is an excellent pain reliever that rewards you with a spicy taste that is a little like a fine dry wine.
Strain 3: Green Crack
If you are planning an all-night lovemaking session, there are few better marijuana strains than Greek Crack. It produces a euphoric head high that is positively joyful. Also, it fills you with energy and ensures that you are ready for action when the time comes.
Green Crack is one of the most popular sativas around. It is also a great option if you are looking to be creative, as it combines a feeling of happiness with a shot of energy.
Lastly, the cerebral high will ensure your focus level goes into overdrive, so when it comes to satisfying your partner, there are few better options than Green Crack.
The only downside with this marijuana strain, however, is that you will be unable to sleep for a few hours after consumption.
