It’s difficult to make a blanket statement about which bud is best for between the sheets. Since each sexual encounter is different, even with the same partner, it’s always important to check your headspace and your heart before introducing cannabis into the situation.
Speaking in broad terms, these six strains are largely known for their relaxing, anxiety-reducing components, as well as the ability to heighten senses, all of which are helpful for getting in the mood and enjoying the long, winding road of sensation to O-town.
Scientific studies have shown that a low to moderate dosage of cannabis can enhance sexual experiences by increasing the length and intensity of orgasms and aiding in partner bonding in both men and women (Here’s our guide with the best strains for male arousal). And evidence suggests that cannabis was used as an aphrodisiac in India as early as the 7th century.

This strain is perfect for exploring, whether it be in the bedroom or outdoors—or one another in the outdoors. It offers an intensely elevated sensory experience paired with euphoria and creativity. This strain is said to be ideal for treating patients suffering from conditions such as mild to moderate cases of depression, stress, fatigue, and chronic pain due to injury or illness. Without pain weighing down the body, there is only the floating feeling of an orgasm awaiting you down the rabbit hole, whatever that means.
If you’re gearing up for an all-night lovemaking session, this is the strain to get you there. It instigates feelings of joy, energy, and hyper-focus, all which contribute to a playful high. The only downside is that you will be unable to sleep for several hours after consumption. Then again, who worries about the time when you’re having so much fun entangled in another?
