Is Cannabis the New Viagra? It Could Be…For Women, At Least!

Is Cannabis the New Viagra? It Could Be…For Women, At Least!

By Grow How

Here’s a question – can marijuana play a role in putting the spark back into your sex life?  Taking things one step further, could cannabis save your sex life if it has been heading in the wrong direction for some time?

 

It’s true to say that when you’re well and truly toasted, taking care of anything more than a packet of crisps might sound difficult. But as more people than ever before are turning to marijuana to help with a wide variety of health issues, it seems a growing contingency of stoners are also bringing it into the bedroom.   

 

"We've known for a while, at least anecdotally, that cannabis can enhance the sexual experiences of women," the words of Harvard-trained physician Jordan Tishler. His research along with plenty of other studies have drawn direct links between not only heightened enjoyment of sexual activity, but an actual shot in the arm for the sex lives of those using pot for this ‘alternative’ medicinal purposes.

 

It’s all been a bit of a grey area for some time, largely due to the fact that several studies carried out 30 and 40 years ago brought to light evidence that male sexual function does not necessarily respond positively to cannabis. Or to put it another way, the findings of these particular studies suggested that cannabis was pretty much the exact opposite of Viagra.

 

Nevertheless, researchers studying the effects of cannabis today are beginning to argue differently. They believe that the results of many of the studies carried out such a long time ago really need to be thrown out entirely for the simple reason that there was such an incredibly heavy bias toward marijuana prohibition. Or in other words, they would have said almost anything just to keep us away from the stuff.

 

"The way I see it, why not try cannabis?” said HelloMD chief medical officer Perry Solomon.

 

“There are side effects to Viagra and zero side effects to cannabis when dosed properly,"

 

 “Maybe it's just making them feel better and relaxed, and that's making it easier for them to enjoy sex, but it's still working.”

 

So it seems that more professionals than ever before are starting to support the use of cannabis in the bedroom, regardless of whether or not you essentially need any help. For those wishing to give it a go however, there are certain common sense guidelines that should be followed, in order to ensure that things don’t take a turn for the worse.

 

Making it Work


For example, it’s no secret at all that to smoke too much weed as a guy is to stand absolutely no chance whatsoever of getting the job done. This is precisely why experts advise opting for something with a relatively modest THC content and even then hitting it cautiously. The key being to learn how to draw the line between getting nicely buzzed and completely stoned.

 

In terms of when however, things appear to be rather different. Research has shown that women who have consumed even extreme doses of cannabis in one way or another do not find their libido to be adversely affected and can still gain massive enjoyment from sexual activity. The only problem being that if her male partner was to consume as much cannabis as she did…well, it just isn’t going to happen!

 

14% THC content seems to be about the sweet spot remaining in control and getting the most out of everything.

 

In addition, experts advise caution if intending to use marijuana edibles for such purposes as it is exponentially more difficult to time your ‘efforts’ appropriately and keep control of your high. The key lies in experimentation, which in this instance isn’t exactly what you’d call a chore!
