High sex is popular for a simple reason: it’s awesome.

Do: Pick a strain with a terpene profile that fits your bill
What are you looking for? To increase excitement? Calm your nerves? Different compounds in the cannabis plant have different effects and knowing what you’re looking for can greatly enhance your chances of success. Here’s a quick guide to bedroom boosting terpenes:
Limonene - The horny terp
Linalool - Calms the jitters
Caryophyllene & Humulene - Soothes muscles
Terpinolene - Energy boost
When in doubt, ask your budtender! Most well-informed budtenders should be able to point you to a strain with the terpenes you want.
Don’t: Cotton mouth
There’s nothing worse than a stanky, rough, dry mouth when you’re trying to change someone’s life. Real lovers know about the bedside 32 oz hydroflask. Make sure you stay hydrated and keep some liquids nearby. If you want to be extra gracious, chewing gum can make a big difference.
Whether it’s in a vape, gummies, or flower, CBD can calm your mood and put you more in touch with your body. In fact, some research suggests CBD can increase libido by decreasing anxiety. On top of that, CBD is popularly used to decrease the negative effects associated with THC, so if you’re smoking weed, mixing in some CBD flower can help you avoid a bad trip.
Don’t: Overdo it
Smoking too much weed or eating too strong of an edible can cause paranoia and social anxiety which is not the best vibe for lovemaking. Particularly for those with low tolerances, limiting THC intake can reduce the chances of you fumbling your sex game greatly. One popular way to help prevent an overwhelming high is using delta-8 as it is around 70% as strong delta-9.
Do: Follow your instincts
Around 75% of people polled feel weed makes them more creative. This makes high sex a great opportunity to let yourself go, explore, and spice things up a bit. Allow yourself to follow your instinct and you may discover sensations you never knew existed!
Don’t: Cotton Cooch
The bane of every stoner chick’s existence. In the same way weed can cause dry mouth, it may also cause dry vagina. Luckily, there is an easy fix in keeping some lube on hand and if you’re feeling extra adventurous, cannabis infused lube is a real thing.
At the end of the day, everyone has their own unique relationship with sex and weed. It’s up to each person to listen to their own bodies and intuition to find out what’s best for them and their partners. This said, we really hope this article helps you on your climactic journey!
