New Studies Show That Marijuana Enhances And Increases Sex

Recent scientific studies substantiate what many marijuana users have claimed all along — that it enhances sexual relations. Currently, almost all research into the effects of the cannabis plant is prohibited by the U.S. government due to its classification as a Schedule I substance. However, 31 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, while nine states have also legalized adult use of recreational marijuana. Legalization benefits academia, as it finally allows researchers to study and analyze marijuana’s effects, including its impact on sexual intercourse.  

According to a research study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine (JSM), entitled the Association Between Marijuana Use and Sexual Frequency in the United States: A Population-Based Study, the goal of the study was, “To elucidate whether a relation between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists using a nationally representative sample of reproductive-age men and women.”

The analysis represented 28,176 women and 22,943 men nationwide who were surveyed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) via a questionnaire. The CDC’s broad, all-encompassing survey is often utilized by researchers as a basis for further, more specific analysis.  

Researchers Dr. Michael L. Eisenberg and Dr. Andrew J. Sun are both affiliated with the Department of Urology, at Stanford University, in California. The duo accessed the CDC’s study to research marijuana’s effects on male sexual and reproductive function, which is Dr. Eisenberg’s area of expertise. As such, he sees men with various forms of sexual dysfunction. As for medical or lifestyle factors that may influence function, he is often asked about what role, if any that marijuana may play. 

The clinical implications of their study revealed that “Marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear to impair sexual function.” In fact, daily users across all demographic groups reported having 20% more sex than those who have never used cannabis. 

Dr. Eisenberg thinks doing more research in this area is important. Previously, most doctors had generally counseled men that marijuana, like tobacco, is harmful. However, his current study suggests that may not be the case. 

An additional JSM-published study entitled, The Relationship Between Marijuana Use Prior to Sex and Sexual Function in Women, conducted at Saint Louis University in Missouri claims, “The internet is rife with claims regarding the ability of marijuana to improve the sexual experience; however, scientific data is lacking.” The objective of this study “is to determine if marijuana use before sex affects the sexual experience, by how much, and which domains of sexual function are affected.”

In this survey, researchers polled 133 sexually-active adult women at one particular, academic ObGyn practice, during their annual check-ups. The female patients filled out a lengthy questionnaire regarding marijuana use before sex (hashtag #MUBS).

Thirty-eight women (29%) disclosed consuming cannabis prior to copulation. Of those 38 women, 68 percent reported more pleasurable sex, 16% said it ruined their sexual experience, while the remaining 16% were undecided or unaware.  

Among the enhanced sexuality camp, 72% said it always increased their erotic pleasure, while 24% said it sometimes did. Almost 62% said it enhanced the quality of their orgasms and their libidos in general. Additionally, 16% of MUBS adherents disclosed they purposefully puff pot prior to sex, specifically to relieve any potential pain associated with the act. There were conflicting reports as to whether or not it enhanced vaginal lubrication.

The same research team later widened the scope of their survey to 289 adult MUBS women, with similar results: 65% decided it enhanced their sexual experience, 23% said it did not matter one way or the other, 9% had no significant feedback and 3% said it sabotaged their sexual experience.

Dr. Monica Grover of Asira Medical is double Board certified in Family Medicine and Gynecology, with practices in both Midtown, Manhattan and Westchester, New York. Although she did not participate in either clinical study, she is currently conducting independent research.

“Although some studies have shown results that are equivocal, anecdotally patients have reported positive feedback,” says Dr. Grover.

“Consumption of small quantities [of marijuana] prior to sex may increase libido in female patients, which in turn can release positive endorphins and increase vaginal lubrication.”

Dr. Grover believes this may be due to the short-term anxiolytic of cannabis.  In women. Reduced sexual libido in women usually correlates with any anxiety or stress they are experiencing. So, in the short-term, cannabis has anxiety-reducing effects. However, in the long-term, it can increase anxiety, which may explain the lack of libido in possible habitual users. Dr. Grover is currently working on a study to determine this theory.  

Notable clinical implications among male users reported in the Stanford study were that Cannabis does not impair sexual function nearly as much as alcohol does. Nor are there any contraindications of mixing marijuana with other drugs for sexual performance enhancement such as Viagra or Cialis.  

Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, unlike alcohol, so far there is no direct correlation between marijuana consumption and a significantly increased risk of fatalities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 88,0008 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.  The Journal of the American Medical Association corroborates these findings. The first preventable cause of death in the United States is tobacco use and the second is poor diet combined with physical inactivity. These findings may help build the case for consuming cannabis to become more sexually active to benefit one’s overall health.

Top 5 Cannabis Clothing Brands

Every year around 4/20 I start scouring the internet looking for cannabis chic clothing brands to rep for the holiday. I’m not talking about your typical Rastafarian t-shirt, tie die get up, or some tacky cannabis logo I’m talking cannabis chic clothing; something that is a nod to cannabis without being overly weed themed.

Every year I fall short. I know there has to be brands out there offering the clothing I’m looking for, but honestly finding them is a dime a dozen. I’m not sure if it’s my search terms (hello SEO) or whatever it is, but they are hard to find!

This year I thought I would help everyone out and compile a list of 5 brands that I think are offering that canna-chic clothing option for the “modern stoner.” 

RacyTees

RacyTees is a local startup in Colorado offering to spread joy through their tees. Sisters and founders Tracy and Julie started the company with hopes of providing ways for people to laugh through their apparel. The name is a nod off of Tracy’s name taking the T and moving it to the end, like Pig Latin and you get “RacyT.”

Their hopes is for the company to be a little racy and edgy while still giving the customer a good laugh. 

You can find some great cannabis themed Mens and Women’s shirts and accessories on their website including my favorite “Namaste High.” This is such a perfect top for Greenlove Denver’s Light & Lit Yoga classes! 

Racy’s hopes to be your number one source for cannabis-themed apparel locally offering quality products that are soft and have a good fit. They believe in fun and laughter and showcase that motto with their tagline “grin and wear it.”

If you’d like to pick up one of these awesome RacyT’s use code “LD02” for 15% off your next purchase. 

Shinesty 

Shinesty is a brand that caught my attention while 420 shopping. While I was on the hunt for a good graphic tee I stumbled upon Shinesty who’s mission is to “bring you the most outlandish collection of clothing the world has ever seen.” This couldn’t be more true. After browsing through their catalog you can find countless pages of men’s and women’s themed apparel and accessories from Nascar to Mardi Gras they have every holiday and event on lock.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on their Devil’s Lettuce Weed Hawaiian Kimono and matching print Hawaiian shirt just in time for summer! Both items were made from high quality material and made you super excited to wear them. For those who are looking for a funky cannabis themed item, but don’t want to explicitly rock weed leaves this Hawaiian print is for you. 

Check out their website for some dope apparel and sign up for their newsletter for $10.00 off your next purchase.

Ken Ahbus is another local Colorado company offering a more chic and sophisticated nod at cannabis apparel and accessories. Think of Ken Ahbus as the Calvin Klein of cannabis. Here you can find modern, crisp, luxury items that you feel good about wearing.

Check out the signature Ken Ahbus v-neck, or if you are more of a CBD user the “Buy CBD” tank is essential, and we can’t forget my personal favorite “Today’s Mood is brought to you by THC” hoodie.

Give Ken Ahbus a follow on Instagram to stay up-to-date on their latest releases and styles with more to come and sign up for their newsletter for a discount code on your next purchase.  

Use code “ready4summer” for 35% off during Memorial Day weekend! 

I’d be lying to myself if I didn’t include Greenlove Denver’s #lityogi men and women’s apparel and accessories on this list. I created Greenlove as a way to showcase my love for cannabis and yoga in a chic and sophisticated way. I’ve always been a sucker for a good graphic tee so I created our signature “Yoga and Weed are all I Need” tank and the Lit Yogi flow tank. Both are perfect options for your next plant medicine yoga class in the studio or at home. 

Cannabis Clothing Brands

We also offer cannabis print eye pillows that are filled with lavender, rice, and lavender essential oils to help you drift off into “canna bliss” during Savasana. If you are a yoga studio looking for eye pillows we also offer customer wholesale orders! 

Check out all that we have to offer here and follow us on Instagram to stay up-to-date with our latest releases and yoga classes locally in Denver, CO. 

I hope you enjoyed this list of cannabis clothing brands and it gives you some ideas for your next canna-chic purchase online. If you know of any other clothing brands that should be on my radar send me a note

~ Happy shopping and stay lifted.
