Cannabis: The Female Viagra

Move over Viagra. Let Mother Nature show you how it’s done. Cannabis is the female Viagra the world has been searching for and best of all, it’s all natural! Cannabis is also devoid of the unpleasant side effects that accompany most pharmaceuticals, making it an excellent supplement for the female sex life. In fact, marijuana has been used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years thanks to it’s ability to increase physical sensitivity, reduce inhibitions, and provide a relaxed, in-the-moment mindset. Users report that they experience increased stamina and longer lasting orgasms when utilizing cannabis too. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a win-win sexual experience to me.

Depending on how it’s used, cannabis can address both physical and psychological barriers to sexual activity, which is key since female arousal is much more complex than a physical response. When it comes to smoking or consuming cannabis as a libido boost, it appears that less is more though, at least when it comes to THC content. Optimal strains for sexual experience contain approximately 14% THC as compared to the typical 15-20% preferred for recreational use. This level of THC is just enough to heighten sensation but not enough for the user to be out of it. To help you find that perfect strain, Leafly.com has been kind enough to provide us with this list of 11 strains that are particularly conducive to getting it on. But that’s not all. The founder of Paradigm Medical Marijuana, Karyn Wagner, has went so far as to create Sexxpot, a low THC strain designed specifically for the purpose of aiding us ladies in reaching the big “O.”

Of course, one doesn’t have to consume cannabis at all to take advantage of it’s benefits. There are also topicals that are great for increasing physiological response and creating optimal physical conditions without altering one’s mental state. The University of British Columbia Department of Psychology completed studies that show topical oils infused with cannabis increased blood flow to the genitalia and produced increased response to stimulation. Cannabis infused lubricants, like Bliss and Foria Pleasure, or suppositories, such as Foria Relief and Explore, activate cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region, slowing down signaling to the muscles, causing them to relax and increasing pleasurable sensations. Amelia McDonnell-Parry of The Frisky, described her experience with cannabis infused lubricant as a high just for her vagina. Kind of gives a new definition to party in your pants, huh? But seriously, topicals can help overcome painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, or simply be used to amplify the sexual experience and increase pleasure.

From strains designed to help women achieve an orgasm to topicals that provide the perfect solution to physical impediments and dulled sensation, cannabis is taking the relatively untapped female libido by storm. There’s no reason we ladies should be forced to the sidelines while science pursues continuous advancements in the male sex drive. It’s 2017 and we have all the tools we need to experience the same sexual fulfillment as the opposite sex thanks to growing research and acceptance of cannabis for both recreational and medicinal use. Our male counterparts may have the power of a little blue pill, but we have the power of a big green plant!
