It’s a primordial act that was practically born with humans, perhaps even long before. It's practiced by almost everyone (if not everyone). A source of pleasure and humor, masturbation is part of good sexual health and can have some health benefits.

Throughout time, people in different cultures worldwide have used various substances, foods, and practices as aphrodisiacs to help improve their sex life. Cannabis has a place par excellence within this category since it has the potential to help improve sexuality. In this article, we will talk about the benefits of cannabis for your sex life and masturbation.

Smoking Weed and Masturbating

Let’s face it, cannabis can increase pleasure while masturbating. Research suggests that smoking cannabis could have aphrodisiac effects as it calms anxieties, heightens the senses, and helps cast aside inhibitions. 

Further, there is evidence that cannabis could trigger the release of oxytocin, a hormone that can increase feelings of intimacy and bonding. In addition, THC contained in many cannabis strains has a chemical structure very similar to anandamide. This biochemical component occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for calming anxiety.

Cannabis also causes an increase in blood flow and lung capacity. One of the consequences of this is that our senses are heightened, including touch, which becomes significantly more sensitive. This is why masturbating while high can amplify the pleasurable experience.

Masturbating on Weed

Solo experiences offer unique sensations that can be different from intimacy with others. This is primarily because the focus is entirely on you and the pleasure of exploring yourself and playing with your own sensations. After smoking a good joint or eating some cannabis-infused edibles, sensations amplify, and the whole experience can be even more pleasurable.

One of the wonders that cannabis offers when playing with yourself is that it heightens the sense of touch. Many cannabis users report smoking or consuming some form of cannabis before masturbating because the pleasure can be much greater.

Nevertheless, remember to do everything in moderation. In the case of males, excessive consumption can lead to a decline in arousal, known in the scientific community as "weed dick." Interestingly, medical cannabis experts affirm that this symptom does not apply to women.

In fact, masturbating while high is one of the sexual areas where women have a significant advantage since it can be therapeutic in addition to being pleasurable. Masturbation can have many health benefits for women in particular. It can help prevent cervical infections and dissipate accumulated stress and tension.

The point is that the taboo surrounding female masturbation can make a large percentage of women feel guilt when masturbating. Despite this, masturbation is an essential piece of sexual development in a woman.

A 2015 survey by Cosmopolitan suggests that at least 39% of women usually have orgasms on their own or with a sex toy. In this area, cannabis could be an excellent key to improving self-exploration and thus, help women discover what turns them on. This is because cannabis can help focus on oneself and may also help to ease anxiety triggered by external pressures.

Best Weed for Masturbation

It's practically undeniable that cannabis can bring various health benefits in different contexts. Sexual health is one of them. Although evidence suggests that cannabis and sex could have a beneficial relationship, most people still ask: does marijuana truly enhance sex and masturbation?

The truth is that the precise answer to this question is more complicated since several factors influence the effects of cannabis on an individual. It depends on each person's physiology, history of cannabis use, and tolerance. Still, some strains and edibles may favor male arousal, while other strains and foods may be better for female arousal.

In addition, some people may find it more beneficial to smoke their favorite strain before masturbation and others may find it better to have sex on edibles. The cannabinoid content of each cultivar can also influence the effect each strain has on an individual with regards to masturbation and partnered sex.

Indeed, for some people, Delta-9 THC may work better, while for others, Delta-8, Delta-10, or CBD may be a better option. For this reason, it is worth discussing the effect of various cannabinoids on sexuality and libido. 

CBD and Masturbation

It's important to talk about CBD and sex because, although cannabis has been an aphrodisiac for centuries, CBD and hemp-derived products are relatively new in matters of the bedroom.

Many medical cannabis users use CBD products to deal with pain during sex or to enhance orgasms. But, the effects of CBD on sex and masturbation still need more studies.

One of the advantages of CBD is that it may provide the benefits of cannabis without the high or intoxicating effects of THC. This is why CBD products like the popular CBD gummies, live resin CBD tincture, and CBD intimate lubricants and oils have become so popular among cannabis users looking to enhance their sexual experiences.

But, regarding intimacy and reaching orgasms faster and more often, it appears the most effective CBD products might be CBD vapes and edibles. Specific CBD strains could also be effective in improving sex in different ways. For example, Sour Elektra or our Sour Hawaiian Haze pre-rolls could be ideal Sativa options to combat lack of energy in bed or accumulated fatigue.

Still, they may be excellent for relieving pain that affect sexual performance. Other strains, like the original Bubba Kush and its Indica effects might be better at reducing anxiety and tension preventing you in getting in the mood. CBD could also help to prolong masturbation sessions and make them even more pleasurable.

A survey conducted by Lioness showed that in the majority of users using hemp or hemp-derived products, CBD helped increase orgasms by up to 51% compared to sober individuals. This same survey also showed that individuals under the influence of CBD reached climax 15% faster and also increased the number of orgasms per session from 1.2 when sober to 1.57 when CBD was involved.

Delta 8 and Masturbation

Although cannabinoids, such as CBD, may help improve your sex life, THC has the longest history of use as an aphrodisiac. When compared with CBD, THC seems overwhelmingly more effective in enhancing pleasure, and for good reason.

THC can increase sensation and it appears that THC edibles are especially effective in achieving this goal. Many users report increased ease of achieving more and better orgasms after consuming cannabis with THC, with cannabis edibles again being shown to be most effective in achieving this effect.

In fact, the Lioness study found that cannabis could increase the duration of orgasms by between 17% and 46%. It seems that THC may also increase sexual satisfaction both in individual sessions and with a partner.

While CBD may help users reach orgasm easily, THC can help users achieve more intense and satisfying orgasms. So, if you’re looking for something that offers less intense psychoactive effects while retaining the sexual-enhancing properties of cannabis, Delta-8 THC is the way to go.

Strains like our Delta-8 Zombie Kush and delicious Delta-8 Sour Space Candy are excellent choices for cannabis users and enthusiasts who want to experience the therapeutic benefits of THC, but might feel overwhelmed by the effects of Delta-9 or “regular” THC.

The effects of THC on sex seem practical. However, research findings on this topic are largely based on self-reports. This means they are not overly reliable, so more work is needed before we can say anything conclusive about THC’s effects on libido.

Masturbation after Weed

With the correct dose and strain of cannabis, masturbation and partnered sex with cannabis could be an unforgettable experience. But it’s important to remember that everyone reacts to cannabis differently. Focus on finding the best cannabinoids, terpenes, and the correct dose according to your tolerance, physiology, and other factors.

It is vital to consider everything that can influence your sexual life. From your physical fitness to your emotional well-being. Indeed, when it comes to cannabis, your mindset and the dose are hugely critical. A high dose could produce undesired effects and even induce anxiety.

The idea is to find the correct balance. But without a doubt, after finding that ideal balance and learning how to treat yourself, you can unleash the pleasure of self-exploration and level up your self-love sessions.
