Women who use cannabis have better orgasms
A 2019 study highlights the connection between
cannabis and orgasms in women. In this study,
researchers surveyed 373 women patients at
an obstetrics and gynecological practice.
Researchers found that 127 women who use
cannabis before sex had much higher chances
of achieving a satisfying orgasm than those
who didn’t use cannabis.
The cannabis consumers had 2.13 times higher
odds of having a satisfactory orgasm than
women who didn’t consume. Additionally,
those who use cannabis more frequently had
2.10 times higher odds of having a satisfactory
orgasm than those who use it occasionally.
Cannabis consumers have more sex
A 2017 study looked at survey data from about 50,000 men and women to see whether cannabis use had any connection to how often people had sex. There was a clear correlation: Those who used cannabis had sex more frequently than those who didn’t. This held true for both men and women in all demographic groups. The study also found that cannabis use does not appear to impair sexual function. RelatedHow I found the right cannabis strain for sex

Cannabis might enhance erectile function in men, but more research is need
While the connection between better female sexual health and cannabis use looks clear, it is less so when it comes to male sexual health. Some research suggests cannabis may make it more difficult for men to achieve orgasm, which has given cannabis something of a scary reputation for sexually active men. But the research isn’t all bad.
A 2011 study reviewed literature on cannabis and male sexual function and found mixed results. While some studies showed negative impacts on male sexual health, such as a difficulty in achieving orgasm, others found positive impacts—overall, the study authors even concluded that cannabis might enhance erectile function.
Still, given the limited amount of research available and the contradictory results, more research must be done on this topic.
