The Benefits of Cannabis for Intimacy

For some couples and individuals, cannabis seems to be inseparable from intimacy. Using cannabis products before engaging in sexual activity can help in several ways:

It enhances sensations. Cannabis affects the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for pleasure and reward in the body. This could lead to increased awareness of touch and heightened feelings during sexual intercourse. Cannabis increases arousal and lengthens orgasms in certain individuals.

It eases anxiety and inhibitions. Cannabis may reduce anxiety and make people feel more relaxed. And by stimulating pleasure and reward centers in the brain, it can make intimacy a more pleasurable experience for couples that might lead to deeper levels of connectedness.

Safety Tips for Using Cannabis During Sex

When combining cannabis and sex, safety should be a top priority.

Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Know Your Limits

Start with a low dose if you’re new to cannabis. Wait at least 30 minutes to feel the full effects before having more.

Stay Hydrated

Cannabis can cause dry mouth, as can sex. Keep water on hand and drink if needed to avoid discomfort and stay in the moment.

Use Protection

If you’re not in a monogamous relationship, practice safe sex by using barrier methods like condoms, dental dams and gloves. Cannabis may impair your judgment, so take precautions to avoid STDs.

Set the Mood

Create an environment conducive to intimacy by playing some mood music, lighting candles, using essential oils like lavender or jasmine for aromatherapy, etc. A comfortable setting will enhance the overall experience.

Communicate Openly

Talk to your partner(s) about what they’re in the mood for and any boundaries before and during your encounter. Pay close attention to verbal and nonverbal cues, as cannabis can intensify sensations.

Have Fun!

Cannabis can enhance intimacy, so use it to laugh, explore, get creative, and prioritize pleasure. Start with a low dose, wait to feel the effects, then let inhibitions go. Mind-blowing sex awaits if you follow these tips and enjoy the ride.

Different Cannabis Products to Enhance Intimacy

Cannabis comes in many forms these days, and some are better suited for intimacy than others. Here are a few options to consider:


Edibles like cannabis chocolates, gummies, or baked goods offer a relaxed, mellow body high that can enhance sensuality. Start with low dose, around 2.5 to 5 milligrams of THC. Edibles take 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in, so plan ahead. The effects also last longer, up to 8 hours.

One of our recommended edibles is the 1906 Love Pills. They have universal gender effectiveness with 2.5mg THC and 2.5mg CBD per drop for heightened pleasure.


Vaporizers, or vapes, heat cannabis oil or dried bud to produce vapor for inhalation. The effects are felt quickly but don’t last as long as edibles. Vaping a hybrid or indica strain can relax your body and mind, heightening sensual pleasure. Take 1-2 hits and wait 10-15 minutes before increasing dosage. Start low, around 3% THC or less.


Cannabis topicals like massage oils, lubricants, and creams won’ get you high but can relax muscles and increase blood flow to sensitive areas. They offer targeted relief for soreness and pain, enhancing comfort during intimacy. Topicals take about 30 minutes to work and last 2 to 4 hours.


Cannabis tinctures made by infusing cannabis in alcohol can be taken sublingually or added to drinks. Effects start in 10-15 minutes but fade faster than edibles.


So there you have it, a few tips to help enhance intimacy and connection with your partner through cannabis. Laugh, explore, try new things. Don’t take it all too seriously. Cannabis can be a great tool for intimacy, but ultimately, true connection comes from being fully present with your partner.
