How Does Cannabis Affect Sexual Performance?
If you consume marijuana, you're bound to wonder how cannabis affects sexual performance. For thousands of years, cannabis has been considered a potent aphrodisiac by many, but science has yet to find evidence that using marijuana triggers any kind of chemical response that increases our libido.
Also, everyone experiences the effects of using marijuana differently, and each person can have a different reaction depending on the strain he or she consumes. While we can't yet answer exactly how cannabis affects sexual performance and behavior, here we explain what we know it can do so far.
1. Proper scientific studies and casual polls alike consistently report mixed and unpredictable findings from participants who consume cannabis before sex. This sets cannabis apart from other substances (like alcohol, caffeine, or narcotics) that have consistent effects on sexual performance. In general, a majority of men and women report an increase in their sexual desire and drive, heightened feelings of satisfaction, and a more intimate bond with their partners after using marijuana. The negative effects of cannabis on sexual performance include anxiousness, tiredness, and a lack of interest.
