Researchers at Stanford University were intrigued by the numerous reports on the internet claiming that cannabis was beneficial to the sex lives of women. The researchers therefore decided to put that anecdotal evidence to the test. The results, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, confirmed that women had better sexual experiences if they consumed cannabis before indulging in sex.
Don’t imagine that bespectacled old scientists stood by with their microscopes and other instruments in order to measure what was happening as the study’s subjects had sex. No, nothing of the sort happened.
Instead, an Obstetrics/Gynecology (ObGyn) clinical practice was used to recruit nearly 200 adult women who were sexually active. The participants were given questionnaires eliciting their assessment of how cannabis affected their sex lives.
Of those who said that they consumed cannabis before having sex, 68 percent admitted that sex was more enjoyable for them. 72 percent of those who said cannabis makes sex more pleasurable added that those beneficial effects happened each time they had sex after consuming cannabis.
Interestingly, 62 percent of the respondents who consumed cannabis before having sex revealed that cannabis made their orgasms more intense and pleasurable. None reported that her sex drive reduced as a result of consuming cannabis before having sex.
27 percent of the respondents also admitted that marijuana helped to increase vaginal lubrication during sex. However, 37 percent said they didn’t observe any change in the level of lubrication whether they consumed cannabis before sex or not.
16 percent of the women in the study admitted that they took cannabis before having sex in order to reduce the pain they normally felt during intercourse. 83 percent in this category of women said pain during intercourse was reduced each time they consumed marijuana prior to having sex.
While releasing their findings, the researchers said that the results above were their preliminary findings since they intended to continue the study over a longer time and include more respondents.
However, the researchers were convinced that it was indeed true that the consumption of cannabis resulted in an overall improved sex life for women. Only 10 percent of the respondents claimed that their sex lives weren’t improved by cannabis consumption prior to sex. The degree of that improvement (or lack thereof) seems to be impacted by other factors which are yet to be identified. Cannabis companies like The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR) and The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) may not have been surprised by the findings of this research since they are aware of the massive benefits of cannabis in the different aspects of life.
