You may be extra invested in food play as a way to wash away the aftertaste, as well. There are some sour lemon notes in the flavor profile of this odorous strain, but the OG Kush/Sour Diesel parentage of the strain leaves a largely unpleasant aftertaste that is only made bearable by the awesome high.

Sex Doll Brothels. Nonmonogamy. Virtual Reality. There’s no end to the things people are willing to do to increase both the quantity and quality of the sex they’re having. And why wouldn’t that be the case? Sex is good. Good sex is great. And great sex is something too few people ever get to enjoy.
When it comes to a pleasurable physiological imperative like eating, we’re all about maximizing enjoyment via a variety of approaches and ingredients. So naturally, our sexual palates should be given the same attention. And just as culinary cannabis is a trend that people have long been exploring at home, sexual cannabis is booming now too. Thank you, increased legalization.
A 60 percent leaning indica, Atomic Northern Lights is noteworthy for its psychoactivity, which has been measured at between 14 and 24 percent. Because of that, users generally get some sensory distortion — which can be fun when erotic acts are on the table. Sounds and lights, for instance, may take on new significance or intensity, and that psychedelic enhancement makes a lot of people turn to films and albums that are on the trippy side. But the dreamy feeling is just as apt for viewing your partner in a new light and engaging in some sensation play with a feather tickler or nipple clamps. Expect an increased feeling of camaraderie as well, making this strain perfect for maximizing intimacy.
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.
Because of its parent strains, Granddaddy Purple has a grape and berry fragrance that is somewhat mirrored in its flavor profile. If you are looking for awesome effects and a pretty tasty draw, you will enjoy the sweetness that couples with grape and berry notes. But, as it is a strong indica, using too much can leave you immobile, and that’s not ideal for sex in most cases. So, don’t get all excited about the yummy taste and use too much.

Looking to take your sex life up another level? These 14 cannabis strains will heighten your sensations and free your mind.
“[You have] to actually really figure out what kind of sex you want to be having,” says sex educator Ashley Manta about another variable to consider. Whatever strain you decide on, and for whatever reason, Manta says a major key to making cannabis and sex work for you and your partner(s) is a little introspection. “Do you want to have slow, passionate sex with your partner that’s really connective with eye-gazing and gentle with a lot of intimacy? Or are you looking for, like, ‘Oh my gosh, I just wanna pound the heck out of you!’?”

The key to getting it right is glorious trial and error, with some applied knowledge about what it is you’re smoking/vaping/eating in the bedroom. Considering the topic, its a lesson most won’t mind learning.
Which weed strain is best for sex is a difficult question to answer. In fact, says Erica Kay of the Los Angeles’s Cornerstone Collective, “You can’t make a blanket statement about things like this.” There are simply too many variables. And what bud is best for the bedroom is pretty specific depending on the starting point before the drug is even introduced. For instance, are you in pain? Anxious? Are you using marijuana to give a boost to a dormant libido? There are different strains for different moods.
If you’re new to weed sex, experimenting with different sorts of highs solo can give you the privacy and freedom to explore. “Kicking off with masturbation is such a smart thing,” Manta says. Above all else, if you’re truly interested in infusing your sex life with cannabis, keep trying. There’s no one-size-fits all option.
“If you have anxiety with sex, you can ask your dispensary which varieties would work best for anti-anxiety,” says Vanessa Lavorato, proprietor of the cannabis confiserie Marigold Sweets. “I can’t say cannabis is some kind of wonder drug that’s gonna make you all of a sudden be able to have the best orgasm of your life, but for people who have anxiety, it definitely does help.”
That in mind, an indica strain like Yumboldt could be a good bet for intimate, snuggly sex, as it boosts relaxation and happiness levels. To help with nerves, weed-centric media outlet HERB recommends indica strains like Northern Lights as well as hybrid strains with an equal balance of THC and CBD like One to One. For more energetic boning, Lavorato recommends Green Crack, which also gets a nod from “the world’s largest cannabis information resource” Leafly for those looking to perk up while getting down.
“If you want the ‘fuck your brains out’-kind of stuff, I would look at [strains] that are high in pinene and limonene, which are two different terpenes,” Manta says. Terpenes are aromatic oils released in cannabis alongside cannabinoids. Not only do they dictate the smell of a certain strain, they can tweak physical and psychoactive effects. Pinene, marked by its super good spruce-like smell, helps you feel more alert—which can be helpful, assuming you’re not content being a doormat in the sac. On the other hand, limonene is notorious for its sour citrus odor and helps significantly at melting stress.
But broadly speaking, for the more anxiety prone, experts like Kay say it’s best to opt for a strain high in CBD and low in THC (AKA tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive chemical that can trigger both euphoria as well as paranoia). Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the cannabinoid in marijuana that helps unfurl shoulder knots; it’s what gives you that melted butter body high, and therefore can be helpful for getting in the mood. Relaxation—especially for people with vaginas and those with general anxiety—is essential for reaching orgasm.
