We know how much cannabis can make sex feel better (I mean, what doesn’t it make better?), but are there specific strains better at this than others? While some studies say that cannabis actually reduces libido, there’s a ton of cannabis products designed to enhance arousal, and I’m sure many individuals out there don’t mind challenging the science on this one.
With little research devoted to strain-specific benefits in the bedroom, I encourage you to read this to become a citizen scientist and get to work on such experiments.
Here’s a list of some strains we think could be the most beneficial between the sheets.
Back to those energizing sativas! One of the most notable and robust strains out there is Strawberry Cough. While the euphoric state will no doubt leave you satisfied, it will also contribute to you enjoying the satisfaction that your partner provides.
Calming your mind and possibly giving you the courage to try that thing you’ve been wanting to do (you know what I’m talking about, you nasty thing), this strain will melt your stress and pressure away.
The sativa dominant strain is famous for its potency and ability to provide a huge rush of focused energy.
This sativa-dominant hybrid gives you a boost in creativity that your partner will surely enjoy. Remember, some of the best plays in football have been audibles! Let this energetic, innovative high take charge, and don’t be afraid to get weird.
This brainy high could have your partner in awe of your passion and drive. Usually about 20% THC, this strain also promotes a more focused, yet relaxed high that can aid your performance greatly. This would be a great strain for someone lacking a little confidence, enhancing their social interactions and putting their doubts on the back burner.
Often a favorite strain of patients with attention disorders, this haze will ensure you devote your complete attention to your lover’s wants and needs.
The indica dominance of this strain will once again compel you to tread lightly. Despite the warnings about indicas, it’s important to note that the right indica will get you so relaxed that your sexual encounter is enhanced by the intense body high. The key is to find that line before passing out and ride it (ayo!) as much as you can.
Wedding Cake has tremendous sedative benefits, but this doesn’t mean you will turn into a zombie with just a few puffs. On the contrary, utilizing this strain effectively would allow you to relax and enjoy the moment, which is a practice that often leads to a satisfied mate.
Did you know there are a few ways to try different strains?
You might be a fan of the popular cannabinoid Delta-9 THC, the traditional cannabinoid that delivers a high.
But have you ever thought about trying your favorite strain in a relaxing Delta-8 flower? We suggest checking out Kalibloom for all of your Delta-8 flower needs.
Kalibloom’s Delta-8 flower in Wedding Cake is the cream of the crop. It’s incredibly potent and tasty, but doesn’t leave you feeling paranoid or anxious.
Thanks to the relaxing wonders of Delta-8, Kalibloom’s Delta-8 Wedding Cake is the perfect addition to creative tasks, social settings, and even peaceful me-time.
Another sativa-dominant hybrid to get your energy pumping, among other things. Sour G offers a blissful mental state that also keeps the mind sharp and clear. Ten times more effective (and safer) than any weird enhancement product on your local gas station’s shelf, this strong and uplifting high could be the boost you need to make your move and go hard in the paint like Jordan.
One thing to keep in mind regarding this strain is its track record for being a one-hitter-quitter for some. If you are planning on lighting it up before doing the nasty, make sure you don’t smoke too much, or the relaxation and calming effects will begin to set in. This should be used as a quick pick-me-up to get the ball rolling with your partner.
One of my favorite strains! It’s no secret why sativas or sativa-dominant strains are making frequent stops on the list.
While ‘Sour D’ might not seem like something you’d want to hear about in the bedroom, the weed strain definitely should be a topic of discussion.
Like a true sativa, Sour Diesel gives a dreamy and cerebral high that also gets the blood flowing. Share a joint with your partner and both of you will get that boost to finally knock them boots.
Sour Diesel contains terpenes like myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene. These all contribute to easing your mind and body, and myrcene, known as the ‘queen of terpenes’ also provides pain and anxiety relief, along with anti-inflammatory effects. It is also found in basil, hops, wild thyme, parsley, mango, lemongrass, and bay leaves. Let this natural terpene soothe your mind and help get your body ready to perform.
Just like a real mimosa, this strain is going to give you that confidence you need to get things going. Say goodbye to your anxiety and welcome open intimacy with this sativa-dominant hybrid. Your mood will boost and mimosas won’t be the only thing that’s endless tonight.
Having a calming effect on your nerves, this strain is made with the terpenes limonene, myrcene, and pinene. The citrusy limonene relieves stress and upgrades your mood, putting you in the perfect state of mind for doing the damn thing.
The other terpenes contribute to heightening your sensory experience and enhancing pleasure. This, along with a skilled partner, could put you on cloud sixty-nine by the end of the night.
There’s a huge difference between outdoor and indoor weed.
Similarly, there’s a noticeable difference in smoking strains with only Delta-9 THC versus other cannabinoids like Delta-8 THC and HHC.
If you adore the delicious flavors, aroma, and effects of Mimosa, allow your mind to feel even more relaxed with Kalibloom’s Small Batch Indoor Flower in Mimosa.
Kalibloom believes that everyone should have access to top-quality and natural hemp products for relief. But relief doesn’t necessarily mean getting blazed out of your mind with ultra psychoactive Delta-9 THC.
Instead, Kalibloom’s Small Batch Indoor Mimosa Flower contains Delta-8 THC and HHC for the ultimate relaxing and pain-relieving experience.
Plus, their buds are hand-trimmed and hand-watered, cared for by those who would only use the best of the best.
Euphoria and relaxation in one, Do-Si-Dos is the perfect bud to spark pre or post-coitus.
In fact, Girl Scout Cookies and Face Off OG were seen doing the nasty about nine months ago and have birthed the ultimate sex strain that will make you want to Do-Si-Dos around your partner.
The indica-dominant strain unleashes a wave of euphoric energy to boost your sex drive and give you a relaxed, full-body effect.
Here’s a fan favorite indica-dominant hybrid that gives a cerebral and relaxing high. Known to be an instant pick-me-up, this strain would be perfect for one of those instances where you don’t know how the date is going. If you’re feeling a little unsure of the vibe, a couple hits of GSC will surely perk things up.
Also known for benefitting female arousal, this strain has a beautiful aroma that will captivate users when used properly. Remember, when dealing with such a strong strain it’s important not to overdo it and end up passing out before the magic happens.
A more balanced hybrid than the previous strains, you get the best of both worlds with Gelato. A euphoric, psychoactive high that also provides relaxation throughout the body, this strain should be used with caution when lighting up before intercourse.
Frequently used to treat insomnia and fatigue, puffing too much on Gelato might make you a little lazy in the bedroom. While letting your partner take control is key to a healthy sexual relationship, you want to make sure that you are still energized enough to return the favor.
A much more laid-back high than some of the other strains listed, Rainbow Sherbert is an evenly balanced hybrid that provides focus and relaxation, two of the most important traits for a successful romp in the sheets.
While this may be tamer than some of the sativas, it will be the perfect aid for a passionate night. Initially giving a cerebral boost, the strain will eventually deliver a full relaxation that can aid in your arousal and overall mood.
Get ready to add some fruitiness to that intensely Sour D (context is everything here). Actually, the blueberry scent does its best to mask the pungent diesel smell, making Blueberry Diesel a fruity twist to the highly regarded strain.
Purple and green hues, along with enchanting orange hairs, make the strain perfect for a night of spontaneous activities, whatever that might entail for you and your partner.
If you’re prone to getting the pre-sex butterflies, take a puff of some good old Northern Lights to help relax your mind and body. The indica-leaning strain will relax your muscles and let you enjoy the experience at hand. The strain’s rich and spicy finish is almost foreshadowing the events to come.
The strains above are best for nighttime use, which is where Harlequin comes in. Ideal for a post-sex morning sesh, Harlequin is rich in CBD, perfect to start the day, and an effective refresher after a morning bump n’ grind. It is pain-relieving, relaxing, and clears your mind to bring it out of the gutter and into your day-to-day endeavors.

There might be a daddy or two in the bedroom, but the real one is Mr. Granddaddy Purple, here to put you to bed after an “eventful” night. The long-lasting Indica strain will help you and your friend down south relax, helping you maintain the pleasure and, well, last longer. The strain is incredibly powerful, so don’t smoke too much, or your partner might feel like they got the short end of the stick.

Several hypotheses exist about how cannabis might increase sex drive, but the science isn’t there yet. However, there are a few theories.
The truth is that different people respond to cannabis in different ways. Some people experience an enhancement of libido and pleasure, while others notice no difference at all.
Marijuana, whether smoked or consumed in edible form, triggers a response in the brain that causes relaxation of inhibitions and stimulation of things like libido.
One recent study showed that men and women who consume weed on a regular basis have 20% more sex compared to people who don’t.
Cannabis is a psychoactive drug and it’s different for every person.. If you’re new to it, here are some simple guidelines to help you have a fun, safe experience.
First, try it by yourself and see how you feel before incorporating another person. The more comfortable you feel when smoking weed, the more you’ll get to enjoy the experience with someone else.
Despite most people saying cannabis, he’s them with anxiety, there’s another group of people who say exactly the opposite and in turn, feel more anxious and paranoid. If that happens, just try to breathe and drink some water. It’ll go away once the effect goes away.
While this list offered a plethora of possible effects, remember that each strain interacts with people differently based on their chemical formation.
The best advice is to try these strains and record your own experiences to see what works best for you and your partner. Now that’s an experiment where you wouldn’t mind the extensive research. Science rocks!
