A study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Journal of Sexual Medicine has found that women find sex more pleasurable when high on marijuana.
The objective of the study was to determine if marijuana use before sex affected sexual intercourse; by how much, and which domains of sexual function it affected.
The researchers found that 68 percent of women who used dagga before having sex reported finding the experience more enjoyable.
In another study published in the same journal, Stanford University experts found a direct link between dagga consumption and greater sexual frequency.
Researchers surveyed 28 176 women and 22 943 men (average age 29) and found users of the “herb” have 20 percent more sex than non-users.
Weed is also said to help women who have trouble achieving orgasm.
The CB1 is the brain’s receptor that is affected when smoking dagga. Dr. Mitch Earleywine, professor of psychology at the State University of New York at Albany told NY Mag: “That CB1 receptor seems to be involved in improved tactile sensations and general euphoria.”
