Throughout pop culture and literature, the effects of various drugs on sexual appetites and experiences have been well-documented. It’s little wonder why college kids and adults alike spend maximum time drinking at bars or parties to find a sexual partner.
But what effects does marijuana have on our erotic exploits? For some, smoking cannabis leads to enhanced intimacy during intercourse. And just last year, Psychology Today informally polled readers to report how smoking weed changed their sex lives. Though 12 percent of readers responded “marijuana destroys sex,” about 67 percent said “marijuana enhances sex.” Here’s how they described the effects:
“Marijuana engulfs me in sex foam. I’m just pure sex on that stuff. It’s great. I could never feel that way sober or drunk.”
“After smoking, I can feel my nipples perk up, clitoris tingle and vagina become wet to the point that I can feel it through my pants and my man knows he is in for a LONG night.”
Perhaps, what’s more interesting, is that 20 percent reported “marijuana’s sexual effect depends on the dose, strain, and the smoker’s mood.” Different strains produce vastly different effects in users—from psychoactive properties to creative boosts. It does matter what you smoke. So that led us to question what cannabis strains could be considered the “sexy strains?” What would enhance the mood when you’re in the mood?
Here Are 7 Strains That Will Help You Get It On:
Green Love Potion
Can you doubt that kind of name? This indica-dominant strain won’t give you couchlock, but will instead give you a relaxing body high that will enhance a lovely feeling of intimacy.
A descendant from the popular Sour Diesel and Hawaiian strains, this sativa will give you a giggly, but laid-back sensation. It will instill an energy that can be used for socializing, or, well, you know.
Key Lime Pie
If you’re looking to amplify sexy time, Key Lime Pie will help you go a long way. The hybrid strain will make you very sensitive to touch, but be warned. According to Leafly, Key Lime Pie has “been known to overwhelm those less familiar with cannabis.”

This stimulating sativa will leave you feeling refreshed and creative. It will also give you an activating buzz and help arouse intimacy between you and your partner.
Though the mostly-indica strain is a popular medical choice because of its abilities to treat depression, pain and some mental disorders, it also could be considered an aphrodisiac of sorts. Boasting parents of OG Kush and Trainwreck, it combines muscle-relaxing effects with a brilliant mental arousal, both ideal for enhancing the mood.
An extension of the Paris OG family, this primarily indica strain acts fast and will leave users both stimulated and soothed.
Though this indica will induce you into a heavily pacified state, it will also make you highly aroused and energetic. Near perfect for that moment right before you crawl into bed.
Though it’s not a weed strain, consider this topical product an added bonus. Here’s a short description: “a therapeutic oil designed to enhance female pleasure and is made with all natural liquid coconut oil (MCT) and purified pharmaceutical-grade cannabis oil.” In laywoman’s terms, it gets your vagina high. What could be more sexy than that?
