We’ve known cannabis to be a helpful aid for sleep, mood, hunger, and pain relief, but the latest question is whether or not marijuana is a libido booster.

There isn’t definitive research that states marijuana is an aphrodisiac; in fact, many of these statements are just myths to help companies sell their products. A good example is the 2016 ATTN article that suggests strains like “Green Crack,” “Sour Dream,” and “Atomic Northern Lights” are all libido boosters, but the article lacks reliable scientific evidence.

It’s not just the article that’s missing scientific evidence; there’s simply not enough research to say whether or not weed is an aphrodisiac. That said, a Stanford University study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine held a survey across various demographics that measured marijuana smokers and their sexual activity.

The researchers discovered that “a positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency is seen in men and women across all demographic groups.” They also found that cannabis doesn’t “appear to impair sexual function.” But they also mention that more and thorough research is needed to make a conclusion.

Similar to alcohol, cannabis has different effects on anyone who uses it. You know, the happy drink, the mad drunk, the flirty drunk, etc. Therefore, we encourage you to come to your own conclusion and test out how cannabis affects you in the bedroom.
