The connection between cannabis and a higher sensorial effect has led people to use it for enhanced sexual experiences. While the relationship to marijuana is subjective and varies from person to person, for some people the relaxation can improve the feelings of intimacy and allow them to focus on the moment instead of on other irrelevant things. Basing all these facts solely on empirical reports, there could be several ways in which weed can positively impact our sexual experience.
Relaxation and Stress Reduction:
When an individual feels relaxed, anxiety leaving their mind and body, they may find it easier to let go of inhibitions and enter a calm state of mind during intimate moments. Reduced stress levels can promote a deeper connection with one’s partner, enhancing both emotional and physical confidence.
The cannabinoids are known to heighten touch, taste, and sound perception. This enhanced sensitivity can lead to a more pleasurable and immersive encounter, and a deepened awareness of a partner’s feel can contribute to a rediscovery of experiences and a more fulfilling sexual climax.
Increased Sensuality and Intimacy:
The state of mind induced by THC and other cannabinoids can make even the most ordinary moments feel extraordinary. Engaging in physical but also mental activities such as massages, intimate conversations, or exploring new sensations can be elevated with the use of marijuana, and foster a deeper connection between partners.
Mindfulness and Present-Moment Awareness:
Some strains of Cannabis are known to increase the capability of focus. This will in turn enhance mindfulness and present-moment awareness, allowing individuals to fully immerse themselves and capture every detail of the sexual experience. By being more attuned to their sensations, users can experience or discover a deeper connection with their bodies and their partners.
Communication and Exploration:
The disinhibition property of marijuana can lead to more openness between partners and greater communication. We all know how key communication can be in a sexual space, and how important it is for individuals to feel comfortable expressing their desires and fantasies. The use of cannabis to achieve a greater bond and create a safe space or channel of communication can develop a greater understanding of the partner’s needs.
In the past, it was not so common to use cannabis with a partner in intimacy. Perhaps it has always had some popularity among younger couples, but there were still many people that remained hesitant to try it, partly due to its illegality, but also due to the stigma and prejudice that surrounded it.
Thankfully all that has been changing lately, and in a city like Barcelona where it is not illegal to consume cannabis in the privacy of your home or the premises of a dispensary or weed club, the reach of marijuana use has been spreading towards people that would have never tried it otherwise.
As with any substance or activity, it is essential to be well-informed and make informed decisions about incorporating cannabis into one’s sexual experiences. That is why in this blog we offer information and research based articles to enlighten about the properties and correct uses of marijuana. Ultimately, if someone has never used cannabis before, it is never a bad idea to consult its use with their healthcare professional, especially if they are taking some kind of medication.
