Weed budtenders’ advice to new marijuana users is to start slow and go slow on marijuana. This ensures that they do not overdose and they are responsible for their usage. The budtenders’ mantra is the topic of discussion in a new paper that reviews currents studies on sex and how it is affected by marijuana consumption.
Research on the effects of marijuana have been taking place over the years, and according to the review authors, most of the studies suggest that desire is affected by the level of dosage. The studies indicate that consuming lower doses of marijuana improves your desire. However, when consumers indulged in high doses, their longing decreased or wasn’t affected by the weed.
Researches on the effects of marijuana support the view that cannabis positively affects sexual desire as it results in heightened libido and better orgasms, but, due to legal restrictions, quality studies on cannabis are few. The authors also analyze what the current studies show about the effect of cannabinoid on female sexual longing; and published their findings in this month’s edition of Sexual Medicine Review.
According to the review, most of the studies concluded that marijuana has a positive effect on animal and human sexual pleasure. Use of marijuana during or before sex helps by increasing sexual desire, and brings prolonged and better orgasms. Of all the studies analyzed and reviewed, only one study showed that marijuana inhibits orgasm. This is because the research was focused on the adverse effects of cannabis instead of the general function.
The review authors analyzed 12 studies on human beings and eight studies on animals that were published in the years 1970-2019.
In their review involving animals, they found that when THC was administered to female hamsters with high levels of oestrogen, their desire to mate was heightened and the likelihood of approaching male hamsters for mating was high. This was not observed in Hamsters that were not given THC.
In another study, rats with detectable levels of oestrogen and progesterone were given THC, which enhances lordosis. Lordosis is a position where the rat is arching its back down. Lordosis is used to assess sexual motivation in female rats. When high doses of THC were administered in the rats, their longing was reduced. Other products of marijuana used were endocannabinoid receptor agonists and antagonists. These included anandamide and SR141716. When rats were given anandamide, their desire to mate was increased, but when they were given SR141716, their desire reduced.
Their analysis of studies involving human beings found that more women experienced increased desire than men when they consumed weed. In 1974, a study involving college students found that 57.8% of the women experience increased desire while 39.1% represented the male students. The same study also suggested that the longing was dependent on the amount of marijuana consumed. When they smoked one joint, their desire increased, but when they consumed more, the desire lessened. The lessened longing is associated with the sleeping effect of marijuana.
A study carried out in India and Nepal had the same findings, where the amount of marijuana consumed affects sex. It also concluded that frequent consumption of weed increased the probability of experiencing satisfactory orgasms.
In conclusion, the review authors wrote that it is important to understand how women’s sexual longing is affected by cannabinoids because it would help in developing better therapeutic options and better understand female sexual functioning. The analysis was more dependent on rodent research and questionnaires since human studies do not indicate the exact dosage or time.
Analysts believe that marijuana industry companies like Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF) and GP Solutions Inc. (OTC: GWPD) aren’t surprised by the findings of this review since the effects of marijuana on libido have been known for long.
