No matter the activity, someone out there is ready to explain that the best way to do it is after smoking some weed

Some smokers have even claimed that sex is far more pleasurable when stoned. 

This claim had come up so often, that St. Louis University in Missouri begun conducting research in the effects of weed on sex life. There’s clearly something to this claim, so what’s the best weed for sex?

Weed and Sex

Before choosing a weed strain to improve your sex life, it’s important to understand what you should improve in your sex life. 

Why is this important?

Different strains are grown to affect you differently. While some strains are perfect to knock you out for bed, and others are tailor grown to help you get work done, and there are ones for nearly every use-case in between. However, everyone’s body reacts uniquely to the effects of different weed, so it’s important to be realistic about what aspects of sex you want to improve.

One of the biggest worries new users have when considering using weed for sex is the idea that they may become “too high” to a point where they won’t enjoy sex. It’s crucial to know your own limitations and how you will be affected when smoking weed. 

Since different strains of weed will effect people differently, and people are missing certain aspects in their sex life, the simple asnwer is that weed can help your sex life when used right.

Weed for Increased Sensitivity

For many couples, sex is often about slow, soft sensations, focused on every kiss, touch, and feeling. Increased sensitivity can make the gentle moments feel as deep and special physically as they feel emotionally.

Each user will react to the same bud just a bit differently. This means while certain strain makes you feel extremely sensitive, your partner may not feel the same way. It’s important to experiment with different strains to see what works for you and your partner.

Best Ways To Use Before Sex

While lighting up a joint or bowl before sex sounds like the go-to for you, there are a wide range of ways to use your favorite bud. 

When looking at popular strains, they can be found as typical buds, vape, gummies, drinks, tinctures and much more. 

Which way is the best?


Whenever smoking weed, you should have a goal to keep your bud as cool as possible. If your weed gets too hot, you will actually destroy the THC before it can be consumed. 

Joins and blunts reduce this loss, allowing you to get the most out of each gram. 

If you’re looking for a one hit pull, consider using a bowl, bong, or pipe. Be sure to place any lit bowl away from the bed, since the goal is, well, you know. 


A smoking method often considered safer, vapes allow you to smoke an oil as it evaporates over a hot coil. Once you let go of the button, this entire setup cools down, making this a safe option for using anywhere, including in bed. 


From drinks to gummies, edibles have remained a favorite for THC and CBD consumption. Imagine you want a heavy hit of THC, but in a Watermelon Drink — with edibles this is no problem. 

When using edibles, you have no loss due to heating. With bud, smoking 12mg means you receive around 4mg. With edibles, 12mg means you get 12mg. This is why it’s recommended to ease your way into using edibles. 


A go-to for medical use, tinctures are dropped under the tongue. This gives the oils instant access to the bloodstream, and your body feels the effects almost immediately. 

Since there’s no smoke, this is a great option for apartments or other rented properties. If you want a bit more during or even after, simply drip a bit more under your tongue and keep moving. 


One particularly arousing way to bring weed into the bedroom is with a cannabis-infused lube. Foria hits the spot with their Pleasure Arousal Oil. This 150mg THC-infused lube is specifically formulated for women to help them get there with a heightened sense of touch and sensation while also soothing tension and discomfort.

Weed and Sex: A Perfect Combo

The idea that sex could be even better than it is now is reason in itself to give weed a try. Knowing what you want out of sex will help you better choose the right weed for your adventure. 

Since strains affect people differently, it’s important to give different strains a try. In other words, you need to smoke weed and have sex often to find what works best for you — so try a bunch of different things!
