For people who are looking to spice up their sex life, California dispensaries like HPC Port Hueneme are offering a fun assortment of intimacy products with a not-so-secret ingredient: cannabis.
Cannabis connoisseurs and newbies alike are lining up to try everything from under-the-tongue tinctures like Yummi Karma’s Love Potion drops to Foria’s THC-infused lubricant. With users reporting pleasurable effects ranging from a more sensuous mood to deeper orgasms, this definitely seems to qualify as a hot trend in more ways than one.
Does cannabis really enhance arousal?
It’s no secret that cannabis can make people feel great in general, but the discovery that it can make them feel especially great in the bedroom isn’t something that everyone knows. That’s because many people have to make that discovery for themselves, since the research is still thin on the precise effects of cannabis on a person’s sex life.
Anecdotal evidence, however, is in abundance, and enthusiastic reviewers of available products are quick to give overwhelmingly positive feedback. Testimonials from a broad range of users of cannabis-infused intimacy products make their benefits undeniable, at least at the individual level.
Also, put simply, the logic is sound. Cannabis has long been known for its ability to lower inhibitions while heightening the senses, so it makes sense to many people that cannabis-infused intimacy products can help heat things up behind closed doors.
Additionally, people commonly report that they use cannabis to cope with stress or relieve tension. That can help people relax with their partner — or themselves!
Are all strains created equal?
When it comes to getting hot and heavy, there’s an idea that different strains of cannabis can have different effects. In general, people might consider choosing indica strains if they’re looking to relax and sativa strains if they’re looking to enhance stimulation or get inspired to be a little more creative.
Of course, one reason that cannabis-infused sexual wellness products are so popular is that they take away that type of guesswork. Just look at the labels to see what you can expect!
An easy entry point for non-smokers
For many people, one of the most appealing aspects of the cannabis-infused intimacy trend is that it’s so accessible. You don’t have to be a smoker to partake, you don’t have to be familiar with cannabis in general and you don’t need to be invested in cannabis culture. All you need is an interest in trying something new…
