Have you ever smoked a joint and found that everything is just a little bit more intense, even in the bedroom?
If you’re a firm believer in the enhancing properties of cannabis, then there’s a good chance you’ve had, or attempted to have, sex while high. But does cannabis actually enhance your sexual experience and get you closer to the high of a great orgasm?
According to the cannabis experts at Merry Jane, there are quite a few pros to smoking weed before having sex, including increased desire, sensitivity and yes, greater orgasms. However, they also highlighted some pretty big cons. A lowered sperm count and vaginal dryness were two of the most common turn-offs, but the biggest deterrent for getting high before getting it on was the increase of high-risk behaviour. When under the influence of marijuana (just like alcohol), you’re less likely to be in capacity to give consent or make important decisions such as using adequate protection.
If you’re unsure about the above risks, and not interested in lighting one up before having sex, cannabis can still have a place between the sheets in the form of lubricants and pleasure oils!
We are the first supplier in the United Kingdom to bring you Oh! Holy Mary: the holy grail of cannabis sexual wellness products. This new range of products by Spanish company NUEI are vegan and cruelty-free so you can rest assured that no animals were harmed in the making of your sexy time. We have tested these products out ourselves and are in love with what this brand has to offer! Check them out:
This tingling liquid vibrator comes in a 6mL bottle and is made from sativa seed oil. Put it on your erogenous zones and in a minute or two you’ll start to feel a buzz that transfers to any skin it comes in contact with, because sharing is caring! We found the tingling sensation grew stronger within a few minutes and lasted for about half an hour. Bare in mind, this will vary by person.
Cannabis sativa seeds have naturally moisturising properties which is what makes this lubricant so great. Unlike water-based lubes, this sliding gel acts more like a silicone-based lube that doesn’t dry up quickly. However, unlike anything silicone-based, there’s no risk of damaging your toys. We loved the warming effect and light ‘earthy’ scent this gave off, as it had the essence of cannabis without smelling like your old roommate’s dank bedroom. Another win!
What about the high?
The only high you’ll get from these products will be from the killer orgasm you’re about to have. Cannabis seed extracts used in cosmetic products do not contain THC, the psychoactive substance in weed that gets you high so there’s no need to worry about any nasty side effects.
This Christmas, we’re giving Mary the credit she deserves (sorry Jesus). If you’d like to go green in the bedroom, these cannabis Pleasure Oils and Sliding Gels are a perfect gift for that special someone or just for yourself, we won’t tell!
