Marijuana is now decriminalized or legalized throughout many states in the U.S. The widespread talk of the multitude of health benefits that weed provides is neverending; which has modern-day hippies jumping for joy!
However, did you know that practicing that ‘puff, puff, pass’ can actually improve our sex lives as well?
At NYGal, we love great sex, and we’re down to try anything that might give us a little more pleasure in the bedroom.
So, here’s how the all-natural plant, marijuana, can make our toes curl, knuckles white, and help us enjoy some totally mindblowing booty.
So, you start out your night smoking a bowl with bae to relieve some work stress that you’ve been carrying around all day. The use of marijuana relieves mental and physical tension and acts as a great form of foreplay before getting nasty under the covers.
As the marijuana takes effect on your system, your body will start to physically relax; tension in your muscles will loosen, and you will begin to feel a ‘body high‘ sensation. This sensation will aid your body in being more susceptible to physical pleasure and sexual stimulation. It will allow you to feel more and enjoy more when bae’s working you.
Marijuana not only loosens your muscles and gets you ready for a good workout in the sack, but it also clears your stressful mental agenda and allows you to become fully present with your partner. This increases chemistry with verbal and non-verbal communication; which inevitably makes sex more enjoyable for both partners.
Weed is an Aphrodisiac
Much like oysters and dark chocolate, weed is actually an aphrodisiac which naturally enhances sexual desires. Weed has been proven to allow people to be more intuned to their sexual feelings and urges, which can create a more erotic experience for lovers.
The hot topic of smoking weed before or during sexual intercourse has even led to the making of some THC-infused products designed to enhance sexual experiences. Some of these products include edibles, THC-infused lube, and condoms, as well as THC-infused vaginal and anal suppositories.

Increases Sexual Stamina
Studies show that sexual encounters are extended when the lovers are under the influence of marijuana. A major reason for this is because when under the influence time seems to slow down and your perception of time changes and becomes distorted.
The increase of time spent diddling with your boo inevitably makes the end result of climaxing a million times better. This, in turn, creates a stronger sexual bond between you and your partner as the love-drug, oxytocin, is released during physical intimacy.

Helps You Reach Climax
The CB1 receptor that is activated when you smoke weed actually triggers the improvement of tactile sensations and euphoria. Therefore, a touch is much more than just a touch. It is intensified and physical sensations are heightened to ensure maximum pleasure.
According to Peter Barsoom who founded the company, 1906, which aims to bring marijuana back into a mainstream lifestyle…
“Our body’s natural endocannabinoid system is key in regulating things like pleasure, pain, relaxation, and homeostasis. When it is activated by the cannabinoids in cannabis, it can leave users feeling relaxed with increased pleasure and decreased pain. This can lead to increased arousal and make sex even more enjoyable. For others, the reason is the increased pleasurable sensations that can arise with cannabis. This effect can make sex feel even more enjoyable.”
Orgasms Are More Intense
Not only does weed help you reach your climax, but it makes it so much more intense. Marijuana has the opposite effect of alcohol in sexual experiences. Alcohol can make your orgasms suffer by becoming dull and flat, while weed enhances them, increasing overall pleasure.
As mentioned above, weed creates the illusion of time moving slowly, so the length of the orgasm feels elongated too. Not only that, but the strength of it becomes more intense because of the CB1 receptors being activated; that paired with your sexual desires being heightened, and your body’s ability to relax and enjoy the sensational pleasure you’re experiencing, it’s guaranteed that your orgasm will be out of this world.
