Sex while high, love it or hate it? People have been debating the effects of Mary Jane on their sex lives for years and recent studies are starting to show that the benefits outweigh any risks associated with having sex while high. Here are 7 reasons why we think a little THC boosts any sex session from average to outstanding.
1. Weed Can Increase Your Sexual Desire & Libido
Let’s face it, there are plenty of people who struggle with libido and are constantly trying to find ways to increase their sexual desire. Look no further than cannabis. A study from 1984 found that smoking marijuana leads to an increased libido. That means more excitement which will ultimately lead to more pleasure having sex while high.
2. Cannabis Leads to Increased Sensitivity and Pleasure
Cannabis is known for releasing dopamine which is a neurotransmitter and a precursor of other substances including epinephrine. In short, dopamine makes you feel good. The release of dopamine contributes to the euphoria that comes with getting high. The more dopamine your body releases, the more pleasure you feel. This is convenient knowing that sex also produces more dopamine. Adding marijuana and sex together essentially creates a double boost of pleasure. Cannabis and sex make the perfect team when it comes to increased feelings of pleasure and sensitivity.
3. Enhanced Sensory Perception while High
We’re all familiar with our senses – sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste. Interestingly enough, research has shown that marijuana may be responsible for stimulating the olfactory bulb which heightens your sense of smell while you’re high. In addition to a super sense of smell, cannabis is also shown to lower blood pressure leading to pupil dilation. Dilated pupils lead to enhanced colors and vibrancy in the objects around you. Pair these sensory gains with a session in the bedroom and let your imagination run free. Sex while high on weed could easily turn into an especially colorful experience.
4. Sex While High Helps with Dysfunction
While pleasure and arousal are important, the potential medical benefits of having sex while high may make it even more desirable. Humans have been using cannabis-infused products for centuries. A more recent study shows that getting high before sex may actually be able to help men with erectile dysfunction. Scientists noticed that cannabinoids (the active parts of weed), showed signs of protecting blood vessels from damage and improved low blood flow caused by high cholesterol specifically.
The study also showed that the compounds found in marijuana may improve a man’s sexual function by triggering the CB2 receptor in the penis, reducing stress in the tissue.
5. Cannabis & Sex Leads to Lower Levels of Stress & Anxiety
Aside from dopamine’s effects on pleasure, it also promotes focus and attention. This can allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Increased pleasure combined with extra focus helps you to be present in the moment, leading to more enjoyment having sex while high. While Sativa is the go-to strain for focus, Indica strains can be great to help you mellow out before having some sexual fun. The Spot 420’s strain of choice for sex while high is Purple Trainwreck.
6. Weed Can Help the Ladies Get Juicy
We’ve all experienced or at least heard of cotton mouth, right? What about cotton vagina? Is that a real thing? Researchers think that cannabis can actually help increase the fluids released during arousal.
Weed increases blood flow to the vagina by opening blood vessels. When ladies get excited, the blood vessels in the vagina relax and ultimately swell. This swelling can lead to the ‘sweating’ of water and protein from capillaries in the mucous membrane and cause the wetness achieved by relaxation and excitement. Evos Oils are a great intimate option to increase arousal and have a great experience having sex while high on weed. If you want to turn cannabis and sex into a fun activity, make your own marijuana-infused lube.
7. Marijuana is an Aphrodisiac
As of January 2017, the cannabis we all know and love has officially been named as an aphrodisiac. A study found that over 70% of people reported increased sexual performance after using weed and most of those had some sort of enhancement in pleasure. The results of the study were even between men and women making marijuana a great addition to your sex life.

Now that we’re all hot and bothered, here’s a run-down of our favorite products for marijuana and sex. While there are a ton of great options out there, our favorite topical comes from Evos Oils. They make a great intimate spray.
If you’d rather smoke your way into sexual bliss, we highly recommend Purple Trainwreck as the best weed strain for sex. The classic spicy lemon scent of Trainwreck is met with berry undertones to create a sweet, pungent grape-like flavor. The frosted purple buds are hard to take your eyes off of, while the euphoric, energetic effects are sure to lift your spirits.
