If you’re worried about pain putting a damper on sex, look for strains with terpenes that might ease pain, such as beta-caryophyllene, humulene, myrcene, and caryophyllene, according to Renko. His top pick is the strain Zkittlez.
Other strains to try:
Zkittelz is an indica-dominant hybrid with a strong beta-caryophyllene and humulene profile.
Both are indica-dominant, high-THC hybrids that hit you fast with a body-warming euphoria before melting to blissful relaxation.
Clinical research on cannabis suppositories is limited.
Oils and condoms don’t play nice together, so be mindful of your method of protection.
Both Dr. Tishler and Renko agree that edibles aren’t the best way to go for partnered sex because they’re too slow and unpredictable.
If it’s your first foray into the world of cannabis or even your first time using it for sexual pleasure, trying it during solo play is a good idea.
Sure, you’ve heard it from friends, but the research is also in: Cannabis and sex is a potent and pleasurable combo. Experts told us how to choose the right strain and product for the most mind-blowing sexual experience — no matter what type of mood you’re in.
If you only know Bruce Banner as the man who turns into The Incredible Hulk, it’s time to get to know this powerful strain. It’s very THC heavy, with the Bruce Banner #3 variant boasting as much as 30 percent THC content. A sativa dominant strain, Bruce Banner balances both the sativa and indica parts of its makeup while packing a considerable punch. Expect the effects to be felt quickly and intensely before they mellow out, leaving users with a creative buzz and a general lift in spirits. There is some body relaxation, but you will mostly feel the sativa effects in your head. That makes this a great strain for creativity in the bedroom. Smoke a bowl and try some new types of foreplay or positions you have only daydreamed about.
When it comes to a pleasurable physiological imperative like eating, we’re all about maximizing enjoyment via a variety of approaches and ingredients. So naturally, our sexual palates should be given the same attention. And just as culinary cannabis is a trend that people have long been exploring at home, sexual cannabis is booming now too. Thank you, increased legalization.
If you are expecting some sugary Bubble Yum flavors, think again. This strain runs citrus with top notes of orange and sour lemon. Although, it is a little sweet. And though it isn’t a high energy strain, there is a certain propensity for giggling that can run counter to the smooth, sensual vibe mentioned previously.
Because of its parent strains, Granddaddy Purple has a grape and berry fragrance that is somewhat mirrored in its flavor profile. If you are looking for awesome effects and a pretty tasty draw, you will enjoy the sweetness that couples with grape and berry notes. But, as it is a strong indica, using too much can leave you immobile, and that’s not ideal for sex in most cases. So, don’t get all excited about the yummy taste and use too much.
Jack Herer (the strain and not the person) smells amazing as a bud and even as smoke, which isn’t easy. The flower is predominantly floral-scented with some citrus notes, but when it is burned, it gets herbal and leaves behind a spicy odor like potpourri. It tastes pretty herbaceous like sage and pepper as well.
Sex should be fun, and with this giggly, chatty strain, you can expect to have all the funs. When you add in the total body relaxation and the super munchies you will end up with, it’s an ideal high for taking up a station in the kitchen and pulling your own 9 ½ Weeks. Be warned: if you use too much you can slide into light couchlock, so you have to really move slow and avoid toking like a demon. There is a high degree of sensual stimulation, so licking chocolate off a partner or having it licked off of you will be unlike anything you could achieve sober. And the accompanying euphoria will make the whole act so massively enjoyable that you will work to make it last as long as possible.
You may be extra invested in food play as a way to wash away the aftertaste, as well. There are some sour lemon notes in the flavor profile of this odorous strain, but the OG Kush/Sour Diesel parentage of the strain leaves a largely unpleasant aftertaste that is only made bearable by the awesome high.
As an 80 percent indica strain, Bubblegum Kush isn’t going to facilitate a toe-curling climax that leaves you trying to figure out how to put antiseptic on the scratches that run across your back. Think more along the lines of relaxed orgasms, staring into each other’s eyes, and languid waves of pleasure rolling over you for hours. It’s definitely a relaxed and happy high that takes a while to kick in. When it does creep up on you, it often does so with a flush of the cheeks and a tingle in the temples and across the forehead. Physical and mental stress then retreats to the periphery, and users can breathe more deeply and easily.
Purple Princess smells delicious. Obviously, it smells like cannabis, but there are also sugary berry notes that give way to something that’s almost like grape gum or fruit snacks. And it produces a smooth smoke (something other strains on this list don’t) that is a bit earthy and chocolatey on the palate.
