May 5, 2022

The best weed for sex may not be the same for everyone, but we’ve narrowed it down to a few generalities based on our own experiences and feedback from our customers. So, if you’re looking for weed that makes you horny or an edible perfect for arousal, you’ve come to the right place.

The Link Between Weed and Sex

Marijuana and sex have been linked for thousands of years. Cannabis became known throughout Indian tantric sex practices in the 7th century. Tantra is about prolonging the sexual experience and associated ecstasy, and cannabis goes hand in hand with these goals.

Clinical Study on Cannabis and Sex

One study on the effects of weed and sex found that 38.7% said sex was better, 16% said it was better in some ways and worse in others, and 24.5% said it was sometimes better, while only 4.7% definitively said it was worse.

People also ask, does cannabis make you horny? Check out these additional insights from the study on cannabis and sex:

  • Increased desire for sex: 58.9%
  • Increased sexual satisfaction: 73.8%
  • Increased sensitivity to touch: 74.3%
  • Increased intensity of orgasms: 65.7%
  • Relaxed more during sex: 69.8%
  • Better able to focus during sex: 50.5%
  • Of the 28 participants who reported difficulty reaching orgasm, 14 said it was easier to reach orgasm while using cannabis while only 10 said sex was better.

Best Strains for Male Arousal in 2022

There doesn’t seem to be enough data on long-term cannabis use and sexual dysfunction. In the short term, there are plenty of reviews online of great strains for male arousal to keep you performing at your best.

Divine Banana

If you want your partner to think your banana is divine, the Divine Banana strain has your back… or your front? It’s a flavoursome and potent strain, leaving you in a joyful, focused state.

Northern Lights

If you need your compass to point north, Northern Lights will get you there. This indica-dominant strain is known for putting you and a relaxed and euphoric state, not unlike sex. Many know it as a two-hit-and-quit strain so don’t go hard or you might go soft.

Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough is a sativa strain that many stoners want to test out as it promises to be so potent it’ll make even experienced smokers cough. That cough comes along with a pleasant strawberry flavour and aroma, as well as a heady high that leaves the body ready for a night of fun.


Mimosa is a tasty strain to share before or after a romantic meal. Float into a state of bliss and then give that same feeling to your loved one.

Girl Scout Cookies

Always be prepared… for a night of fun. That includes protection, showering, and choosing an aphrodisiac strain like Girl Scout Cookies. GSC will help you relax and give you a boost in focus and energy to keep you in the game.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel doesn’t have the most romantic of scents, getting you more in the mood to get high than get laid, but its effects are a different story. It’s one of the best marijuana strains for sex if you’re a male, that diesel getting your motor running and ready to go.

Best Strains for Female Arousal in 2022

Studies have shown that for a female to achieve orgasm, it’s as much a mental process as a physical one. Cannabis has the wonderful benefit of relieving your mind and body of stress all at once.

Wedding Cake

Do the scents of vanilla and sweetness put you in the mood? Wedding Cake is a delicious strain, best kept for evening use, and isn’t too strong so will relax you while keeping you present enough for sex.

Super Lemon Haze

An award-winning performance starts with an award-winning strain. Super Lemon Haze is a sativa-leaning strain high in THC that starts by chilling the mind and then warms the body with energy. It’s an ideal strain for getting your head in the mood before sex without leaving you too sleepy to be up for the task. Super Lemon Haze is strong, so go easy if you’re new to weed.


Do-Si-Dos is one of our staff picks, and for good reason. Don’t worry if you’re not a dancer. This strain is beloved for its scent and flavour, as well as its pleasant hybrid effects. Bad smells and tastes can really kill a mood, but sharing this delicious strain with your partner will build anticipation and a romantic atmosphere. We can’t say it’s the best marijuana strain for sex because everyone is different, but it’s up there.

Granddaddy Purple

Don’t think of Granddad. Don’t think of Granddad. Don’t think of Granddad. While thinking of an old person is a classic TV trope of trying to kill your sex drive, that’s not the case here. Granddaddy Purps helps you set your stresses aside: a huge barrier to arousal for many people. It’ll leave you relaxed and ready for a steamy night in.

Blue Dream

The Blue Dream sativa-dominant hybrid is a popular and uplifting strain, that just so happens to give you a lift where it counts. It boosts motivation and focus so that you can focus solely on your partner, an amazing strain for sex.

Animal Cookies

The animal part turns you into an animal, the cookie part fills your world with sweetness. What more could you want before a night of intimacy?

Best Edibles for Male Arousal in 2022

If you’re looking to buy some sex gummies in Canada, we can hook you up before you hook up.

Hunni’s gummies come in cherry, peach, and watermelon and will get you revved up alongside your partner. Just give them about an hour to kick in before upping your dose.

Phoenix Tears can be applied topically to the sexual area. Use sparingly as you don’t want them to get you too excited… They do more for women, sorry guys, but that’s just anatomy. Still, you will feel some change and blowing your partner’s mind with the help of the phoenix can only get you good things in return. Remember this is also a potent edible… just in case any ends up in anyone’s mouth.

CBD tears can be applied topically to him and to her without fear of anyone getting too baked if and when some ends up on your tongue.

Best Edibles for Female Arousal in 2022

As the name might suggest, Hunni’s gummies are an excellent addition to your night before taking things into the bedroom. From what our samplers and reviewers have said, Hunni’s edibles are one of the best edibles for female arousal in our 2022 line.

Again, Phoenix Tears, also known as Rick Simpson Oil, will make you significantly more sensitive down there once applied. They can be applied topically without having to worry about unwanted side effects.

CBD Tears have a similar effect to Phoenix Tears, but are less potent. They can also be used in conjunction with a sativa strain for some of the best weed-aided sex you’ll ever have.

Does Sativa or Indica Make You Hornier?

A lot of people come to us looking for weed that makes you horny. Sativa is generally considered a better strain for sex, often mixed with CBD products. That said, indica strains are known for their ability to release the stresses of your body, so they can make you more sensitive to touch or help if you hold a lot of tension in your muscles. The only issue is if you hit an indica too hard you may melt away all your stress but also become a little numb or lethargic—not the best weed for sex.
