Cannabis has long been recognized as an aphrodisiac, but can it also spark an individual’s sexual empowerment?

 The Hash’s Max Savage Levenson sat down with Portland’s Ev’Yan Whitney, sexuality doula and host of The Sexually Liberated Woman podcast, to learn more about the obstacles that can come between a person and their own sexual liberation, and how cannabis can be a tool to overcome those barriers.
