Cannabis and increase in orgasm




Studies on cannabis use before sex

A 2018 Stanford University study made headlines recently. Scientists have found that regular cannabis users have 20% more sex than non-cannabis users. In addition, according to several surveys, cannabis users not only have more sex - but they also have better sex.

And this could have a significant impact on the treatment of common sexual problems that affect a large part of the population. In the United States, the Cleveland Clinic reports that sexual disorders affect 43% of women and 31% of men. However, there are few effective treatments for sexual disorders. Cannabis could, therefore, help solve the problems of sexual function and performance, we explain it to you.

Several scientific studies prove that there is an interesting link between sex and cannabis - a link that requires further research. Despite the many claims about cannabis and sex, there is currently no scientific research showing that cannabis has a direct impact on sexual disorders. Formal barriers to cannabinoid research - and the highly nuanced and complex science of sexuality - have wiped out efforts to study the relationship between cannabis use and sexual performance.

Is cannabis an aphrodisiac?

Cannabis is used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years. To give just one example, Ayurvedic practitioners in ancient India often recommend using cannabis to improve male sexual performance. A review by BioMed Research International, citing historical data from a section on " Ayurveda and the concept of aphrodisiacs ", described cannabis as "a plant that delays ejaculation and improves ejaculation ".

A study published in 1979 in the Journal of Clinical Psychology was one of the first peer-reviewed reports that found substantial evidence of a link between cannabis and sex. The results of this study showed that "experienced cannabis users" believe that the cannabis plant would improve orgasm and should be considered an aphrodisiac.

In addition, a series of anonymous questionnaires distributed to students in 1984 showed that more than two-thirds reported that they experienced more sexual pleasure and satisfaction when using cannabis. The study, published in the Journal of Sex Research, also found that most of them used marijuana before having sex occasionally, and 20% did so regularly.

However, it must be taken into account that most of our knowledge about cannabis and sex has been determined by surveys. This is somewhat problematic, as surveys are mostly based on a person's feelings and emotions. The results of the survey are very subjective - a feeling of “pleasant sexual intercourse” can be interpreted differently depending on the person.



Why is cannabis used before having sex?

According to a study published in 2017 by Czech psychopharmacologists, cannabis activates a portion of the brain called the right nucleus accumbens, which also plays a significant role in regulating sexual arousal. Accumbens nucleus, also known as the pleasure center of the brain, is heavily populated with cannabinoid CB1 receptors that are specifically activated by THC and indirectly by CBD. CB1 receptors make the endocannabinoid system (SEC) the most important regulatory mechanism in the brain and the body. It balances many physiological processes and transmits how we experience the effects of cannabis.

Cannabinoid receptors are found in the organs that produce sex hormones as well as in the genitals themselves. It turns out that there is a whole range of overlaps between the endocannabinoid system and the physiology of sexual function. On the one hand, cannabinoid receptors are located in the organs that produce sex hormones, as well as in the reproductive organs themselves. Cannabinoid receptors are also present at the axonal endings of dopaminergic and serotonergic neurons, which play an important role in sexual function and with testosterone, estrogen. Then, oxytocin interacts to modulate the sexual response.

Italian scientist Mauro Maccarone called the endocannabinoid system the "guardian angel" of mammalian farming. Extensive preclinical research has shown that cannabinoid receptor signaling is involved in all phases of the reproductive process - from sexual arousal to orgasm, from fertilization to embryo implantation and fetal development.



Sexual arousal and orgasm under cannabis

A 2012 study by American and Canadian researchers also highlights the relationship between the endocannabinoid system and sex. The authors measured the serum concentrations of endocannabinoids 2-AG and AEA in 21 healthy women before and after viewing neutral and erotic films.


Sexual arousal has also been measured by vaginal photoplethysmography, a technique for observing volumetric changes in an organ or body. Another device, called an "arousometer", measures continuous subjective excitation over the entire duration of the film.

The results of this experiment were published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. They observed a direct link between circulating endocannabinoid levels and sexual arousal in women: EAA levels decreased dramatically as female arousal increased.

According to a paper in 2017 entitled " masturbation to orgasm stimulates the release of the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol humans " when the excitement reaches its peak, levels of endocannabinoids suddenly increase.


As per a survey conducted by Women's Sexual Health magazine, more than half of those who used weed before sex reported improved libido and better orgasms.

Similar results were highlighted in a 2019 article titled " Effects of cannabinoids on female sexual function " published by Dr. Becky Lynn, assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women's Health at St. Louis University School of Medicine. Dr. Lynn's team concluded that the combination of cannabis and sex is associated with prolonged and more satisfying orgasms.



Curing Sexual Disorders With Cannabis

What explains the positive effects of cannabis during sexual intercourse? There are probably dozens of factors involved. The THC and CBD are both vasodilators, meaning that marijuana relaxes and dilates blood vessels. Vasodilation also plays a key role in sexual arousal. Marijuana can enhance sexual function by reducing pain and anxiety, which are often a barrier to a productive sexual experience. 70% of the 199 men and women who responded to a survey by the University of British Columbia, said they had more relaxing sex when they used cannabis.

In a report titled “ Impact of Cannabis Use on Men's Sexual Health ” in 2011, two Canadian doctors observed that cannabis could promote erectile dysfunction. But the same article also concluded that most of the results of this study are contradictory. The researchers suspect that the dosage used was not suitable for the individuals in the sample for this study.

Finally, the various cannabinoid receptors could have a major impact on the quality of sexual intercourse. Depending on the dose, a dysfunction could even be treated. A 2008 Canadian study found that CB1 receptor antagonism promotes ejaculation, suggesting that CB1 may be a new target for pharmacological agents that target ejaculatory sexual dysfunction.
