Since the launch of Foria and other cannabis infused lubricants, the ongoing debate on whether or not cannabis can enhance your orgasms and all around sex life has been the talk of the town. It’s a well known fact that marijuana has the power to uplift our minds and fill us with euphoria, but can it really improve sex? The best way to investigate this subject is to understand how cannabis and orgasms affect our bodies.
Let’s start with the orgasm. It’s all about the receptors and nerves. When, the “Big O” triggers those receptors in our brain, our brain releases heavenly sensations throughout our entire body. In regards to nerves, there are four different nerves that communicate to the brain during an orgasm: the hypogastric nerve, pelvic nerve, pundendal nerve and the vagus nerve. These nerves are located in both men and women. The areas of the brain that are affected by sexual stimulation are the nucleus accumbens, cerebellum, pituitary gland, amygdala and ventral tegmental area.
Cannabis works in a very similar way. The cannabinoids and terpenes that make up the medicinal and physical properties of weed directly affect our neurotransmitters and nerves. THC releases dopamine in our bodies which is responsible for the feel good feeling and reward system. Other neurotransmitters are released as well: prolactin, ocytocin, endorphins, adrenaline, phenylehylamine, dopamine, testosterone and serotonin.
Now combining orgasms with nerves, receptors, neurotransmitters and weed, it’s quite easy to assume fireworks will occur. Curious to try this out? We have several strains that are known to make you tingle in all the satisfying places. Gucci is our number one aphrodisiac strain. It’s a cross between Sour Diesel, GDP and OG Kush. Terpenes such as Linalool, alpha-pinene and caryophyllene make up this irresistible toke. Need something with more energy to last through the night? Try our Versace. Sister strain to Gucci, Versace has the same genetics but provides an extra boost of energy and motivation so falling asleep won't be an issue. If this article hasn’t debunked the cannabis O myth, come try out these strains for yourself. (No pun intended).
