Marijuana & Sex: The Studies
Does cannabis increase sexual desire? According to a study
by Sun and Eisenberg, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine
in November 2017, the answer is yes! The two researchers analyzed a CDC survey of over 50,000 people. The researchers checked the survey to look at the herb’s effect on males with one of several forms of sexual dysfunction. Overall, daily male and
female marijuana users reported having sex 20% more often than those who never used pot!
The recent work of Becky Lynn sheds light on how cannabinoids impact female sexual function. In June 2019, Lynn was lead author on a study
published in Sexual Medicine.
The research team found that women who used cannabis before sex were over twice as likely to experience satisfactory orgasms than if they didn’t use the substance.
In September 2019, Lynn et al. published a study
in Sexual Medicine Reviews
. In it, the team found that microdosing weed potentially improves sex drive in females. Research remains in its infancy, but all signs point towards cannabis having a positive impact in the bedroom.
