The Chazzy Girl Talks…Cannabis and Sex
I work a lot. I’m sure you do, too. Between work, parenting, and family life, there doesn’t seem to be time for much else, especially sex. Sometimes, at the end of the day, there is nothing I would rather do than tell my partner to kindly kick rocks because I’m simply too exhausted to romp around under the sheets.
Getting in the mood after long days is something everyone struggles with, so fear not!
Enter Delta-8 cannabis. Huge fan. 10/10. But I’m obviously not the only one who thinks so. A breakthrough study published by Sexual Medicine in 2020 states, “Increased cannabis use was associated with improved sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and overall satisfaction [and] the odds of reporting female sexual dysfunction declined by 21%.” Users of cannabis in this study were significantly more likely to report having satisfying orgasms than those who reported infrequent cannabis use. Science has also found that cannabis is a vasodilator, which means it opens up the blood vessels and increases blood flow (this is MAJOR for our sensation levels!). Similarly, THC alters a user’s perception of time, which can prolong feelings of sexual pleasure. Sounds exciting, huh?
Honestly, after a long day at the office, cannabis is just what I need to relax. The more time I spend relaxing with cannabis, the more magic starts to happen– my confidence grows, my inhibitions are lowered, I am less anxious about performing, and my thoughts start to get a little…spicy. Over the years, the more I started to realize my body’s reaction to cannabis, the more I thought that I could use this to my advantage in the bedroom.
So, what exactly is Delta-8 THC? Delta-8 is a potent cannabinoid that is native to the cannabis flower. It is only found in trace amounts, compared to it’s popular and heavily psychotropic relative Delta-9 THC (legal only in select U.S. states). After some magic involving science and atoms, the finished product yields a unique and more mild psychotropic experience, usually a 2 in 3 relative potency to Delta-9 THC. So, in English, this means no paranoia or anxiety!
You may be wondering if Delta-8 has similar medicinal properties to that of Delta-9, and the answer is YES, THEY DO! Delta-8, much like it’s cousin Delta-9, suppresses nausea, pain and anxiety, stimulates appetite, boosts the nervous system, and aids in a restful night’s sleep.
So how exactly can you bring cannabis into your sex life? The options are vast and wide, my friend—trust us.
Connecting with a partner over a Delta-8 pre-roll is literally one of my favorite things to do, even if it isn’t a romantic partner. Laughing with and chatting up your partner is a bonding experience in itself. Try a sativa-dominant option to allow your conversations flow more freely. Many cannabis patients use the plant to reduce anxiety, and since Delta-8 allows you to express yourself without the nerves, this can be especially helpful in the bedroom. These lowered inhibitions open the door for true communication and deeper, meaningful conversations to occur.
Baking some Delta-8 flower into some homemade cookies makes for a tasty date night. Cooking is a bonding experience, so make it fun– don’t forget the frosting and sprinkles!
Sharing a gummy before catching a flick makes for a unique and enhanced viewing experience. Laugh over a comedy or deeply discuss a riveting new documentary over a delicious dinner, because the munchies are coming for you!
Melt your stresses away together in the bath with a Delta-8 bath bomb. Mix up some bubble bath and an essential oil of your choice to really set the mood.
Play a smoking game! Whether you create your own or try your hand at a board game, smoking games are an entertaining way to liven up any night!
