If you like a skunky, pungent flower, then Atomic Northern Lights will be a favorite because it has some incense notes that become pronounced when you break open the bud. Warning: the smoke will be pretty acrid and harsh, leaving your eyes stinging. It’s better for vaping, which lets you taste some pine and pepper on the exhale (something you miss when you smoke it).
As an 80 percent indica strain, Bubblegum Kush isn’t going to facilitate a toe-curling climax that leaves you trying to figure out how to put antiseptic on the scratches that run across your back. Think more along the lines of relaxed orgasms, staring into each other’s eyes, and languid waves of pleasure rolling over you for hours. It’s definitely a relaxed and happy high that takes a while to kick in. When it does creep up on you, it often does so with a flush of the cheeks and a tingle in the temples and across the forehead. Physical and mental stress then retreats to the periphery, and users can breathe more deeply and easily.
Purple Princess smells delicious. Obviously, it smells like cannabis, but there are also sugary berry notes that give way to something that’s almost like grape gum or fruit snacks. And it produces a smooth smoke (something other strains on this list don’t) that is a bit earthy and chocolatey on the palate.

When it comes to flavor, Trainwreck tends to be earthy and citrusy, but many users also note the presence of both pine and pepper notes. The high THC content is good for obliterating pain, so many people recommend it for fringe sex with the potential for discomfort. Although, it’s worth noting that a lot of sex that hurts is supposed to, so this may be a more appropriate strain for the apprehensive BDSM attempter than anyone else.

There is one area of concern. This is a strain that can cause dry eyes and cottonmouth. Any time you see those symptoms, it means mucus membranes dry up and that’s not great for vaginal lubrication, so people who are prone to dryness should proceed with caution. Otherwise, this tasty strain with its notes of mango and pineapple is awesome.
If you only know Bruce Banner as the man who turns into The Incredible Hulk, it’s time to get to know this powerful strain. It’s very THC heavy, with the Bruce Banner #3 variant boasting as much as 30 percent THC content. A sativa dominant strain, Bruce Banner balances both the sativa and indica parts of its makeup while packing a considerable punch. Expect the effects to be felt quickly and intensely before they mellow out, leaving users with a creative buzz and a general lift in spirits. There is some body relaxation, but you will mostly feel the sativa effects in your head. That makes this a great strain for creativity in the bedroom. Smoke a bowl and try some new types of foreplay or positions you have only daydreamed about.
Sour D is a supremely popular sativa-dominant strain that acts fast and gives users a rush of energy coupled with some spacey cerebral effects. It literally stimulates synaptic activity in the brain, so it’s a bit of a soaring high tempered by a little bit of physical relaxation. People who love this strain for enhancing sex do so because it triggers insatiability. This is a real lust generator perfect for the kind of sex where partners feel their hearts racing, their skin growing hot, and their desire mounting. It’s a real “harder, faster” situation, and if someone doesn’t gasp, “Don’t stop” it’s the exception rather than the rule.

THC and CBD-infused lube is a thing — and a damn wonderful thing according to many who’ve tried them.
Here are some other strains to really ramp up erogenous play and give you the tingles:
Dosing varies between the different methods of delivery, as does the time the effects take to kick in.
Get consent and set clear boundaries before getting started. This is also the time to discuss safer sex and make sure you have barrier protection on hand.
Communication is key to great sex and it needs to happen before you get high. Cannabis can impair your judgment and cause sedation if you take too much.
- Green Crack, a sativa
- Cheese Quake, a hybrid
- Super Lemon Haze, a zesty sativa
Topical application of CBD can be slow to take effect and research is ongoing into ways to improve delivery for faster results. Still, that doesn’t mean that a cannabis-infused lube can’t give your sex life a little boost.
Both Dr. Tishler and Renko agree that edibles aren’t the best way to go for partnered sex because they’re too slow and unpredictable.
