Best Marijuana Strains for Couples and Sex
Popular culture associates chocolate and oysters with sex, but as more and more states legalize marijuana the magic plant’s power as an aphrodisiac is poised for widespread recognition. Few substances on earth have as much between-the-sheets potency as cannabis, and marijuana wholesalers have an increasingly bright future as demand for the world’s most powerful aphrodisiac spikes.
But the fireworks impress with more urgency when the right kind of pot is leveraged. In addition, understanding dosage will help with achieving the ideal stoned lovemaking session.
One thing to consider is the difference between and indicas. Both can help boost bedroom good times, but they go about it in different ways.
Indica and Sativa for Sex
Indica, the classic kick-back-and-relax style of weed, takes a more roundabout path towards getting down. Too much of an indica-heavy strain has the potential to lead to couch lock, rather than couch action. But the right indica strain paired with a smart dose — with flower, no more than three hits; with an indica concentrate just two — can lead to sensory ecstasy, as indica strains especially appeal to body senses, including the all-important (for sex) touch.
Sativa strains are known for amplifying energy and precipitating more psychedelic and cerebral experiences than indica. Energy is great for sex, naturally. And the best intercourse relies upon things happening upstairs, in the brain, as well as all of the activity downstairs. But an excessive dance with sativa has the potential to eliminate the body entirely — the world of the sativa-inhaler can turn into something entirely interior and intellectual. Sex wants both mind and body, however. Dosing matters, and of course it depends upon the strength of the strain. But generally, the same rules apply for sativa as for indica — limit the pre-sex hits to three (and you generally are better off with just two hits) of flower, and one or two (max) for a concentrate.
Marijuana Sex Tips for Couples
Now comes the fun part, second in grins only to the sex itself — shopping for individual strains.
If you are coupled, think of the dispensary trip as part of the romantic evening (or afternoon, not to mention a prelude to some morning wake-and-shake).
• Visit the dispensary together, and buy grams of different strains. Turn the shopping experience into something more like foreplay.
• Talk to the budtenders, who might have experimented with sex and the store’s strains, or at least received feedback from customers
• Play with one strain at a time, and talk about the session after it concludes. Jot down a few notes about the strain and the sesh — keeping a strain sex tab on your phone's note-taking app is a pure Pro Tip. Over time, you should have a good understanding about which strains work best for your relationship. And when you get to your friendly neighborhood pot shop, your phone will remind you about which strains rock the most.
Top Five Marijuana Strains for Sex
Some strains, we know, are already touted for their particular aphrodisiac properties. The world of weed supports tens of thousands of strains at this point, but the most-touted pot strains for sex are not hiding in obscurity — most are available at dispensaries from La Jolla to San Jose to Arcata. And wholesale marijuana businesses keep growing more and more of all strains, including the sexiest ones.
This potent, indica-leaning hybrid rose from relative obscurity to one of the leading strains in the nation this year — No. 1, for example, in Oregon so far this year. The strain’s nickname — some call it “fuck weed” — might have something to do with its epic rise during the past 18 months or so. For a full-body sexual experience, Gorilla Glue #4 delivers like few others.
The gorgeous scent alone — the perfume of grapes and berries — is enough to get some people in the mood. But it’s what a few hits of Granddaddy Purple does to body and mind that makes it one of the best strains for sex. This heavy indica strain is a champion at fusing mind and body — assuming it is dosed properly (too much can lead to couch lock), the bedroom antics involve heightened bodily sensations, extreme relaxation and a mental state that complements what is happening in the body.
Euphoria and sex are joined at the hip — doing the deed minus waves of euphoria is a sad deed (indeed). So Ultimate Trainwreck is an excellent sex partner — the sativa strain can lead to a pulsing, all-encompassing sense of euphoria that brightens and makes richer the sex-induced euphoria.
A happy body-to-body experience is all about being in the flow. It turns out the balanced strain Flo is aptly named. This slightly sativa-dominant hybrid is made for getting into the flow of life — ultramarathon runners dig it, artists leverage it for throwing pots and painting landscapes and sex lovers embrace Flo for their favorite activity.
What do you get when you cross Blue Dream and Sour Diesel, two of the most popular strains in the world? You get Sour Dream, a sativa-leaning hybrid that like Trainwreck is championed for its ability to bring about states of euphoria. Sour Dream is also extremely sociable and uplifting — perfect for the couple that wants to have an extended session, complete with (hot) talking and lots of smiles. Nothing sour about that.
