Best weed strains for sex & arousal
Cannabis is pansexual—it’s for everyone, young and old, it really has no judgment. If you have a CB1 receptor, it’ll hit it. This is a safe space, so we can freely admit: weed makes us horny. And we don’t just mean anecdotally. A growing body of research points to cannabis not only enhancing our sensitivity and reception to intimate touch, but also helps us shed our mental woes to focus on getting down to business. Especially, it seems, when it comes to women’s pleasure. Here’s our collection of the most arousing strains you can actually shop for.

Frequently asked questions
A previous investigation we did into women’s preference as cannabis consumers shows an inclination for sativa-leaning strains that both excite and relax. Cannabis has been proven to help women not only achieve more orgasms, but more intense ones too. Let’s close the orgasm gap with these strains our Leafly gal reviewers have been loving.
- White Truffle
Truffles are a food of decadence, and White Truffle will make you feel fancy, “happy, tingly and horny,” per a pleased Leafly reviewer. It’s actually a pheno of Gorilla Butter (Peanut Butter Breath x Original Glue), with a serious savory nose that’ll make you moan umami.
- The Soap
Dirty mind? We can’t guarantee The Soap will clean that up, but one reviewer said “every time I smoke this I am creative, horny, and energetic.” It tastes better than your bathroom hand soap too, with mint, funk, and pine in the mix.
- Beach Wedding
As the daughter of Wedding Cake and Tropicana Cookies, Beach Wedding brings the bliss of a private beach without the sand. She’s fruity, and apparently, had one reviewer yelling “Holy moly, my p**** is on FIRE.”
- The Gift
Treat yourself, on multiple levels. Nothing kills a bedroom boom like anxiety, and nothing kills anxiety like CBD. The Gift can help melt that way, as well as address all the aches and pains that prevent us from hitting our favorite positions.
Here are some popular weed strains that got our male readers to the finish line and beyond.
- Gator Breath
It’s never a bad idea to brush your teeth in anticipation of an adult sleepover, but you don’t have to worry about Gator Breath ruining the mood. One Leafly reviewer attested that this Motorbreath x Triangle Kush cross helped him stay in the zone “for 12 hours straight.”
Unfortunately fellas, anxiety has a direct link to issues with your equipment. But a stony concoction like Slapz, which comes from Runtz and Grease Monkey, is loud enough to literally slap the nerves right out of you. If you love a gassy aroma with a chemical flair, and “have trouble with arousal,” one reviewer insists “this is the one for you to try!”
- Modified Grapes
The fruit snack flavor of Purple Punch, the pungent relaxation of GMO. Modified Grapes will most likely modify your mindset too, to clear your mind and ease you into “pure bliss.”
- Pie Hoe
I’ll refrain from making the obvious bad pun, but Pie Hoe’s reviews speak for themselves. It’s got the sweetness of Grape Pie with Tahoe OG’s earthy zest, and apparently, “will make you wanna get it in like a gorilla after taking a gas station pill.” For the record, we don’t recommend buying anything at a gas station other than gas.
Weed is generally believed to enhance your sex life, although more research is needed on this topic.
When picking a cannabis strain to smoke before sex, choose an indica-dominant strain with high THC content.
Cannabis modulates the endocannabinoid system, which controls anxiety, and arousal. Sometimes stimulating that system can lessen anxiety to keep you in the moment, or amplify physical sensations like sight, sound, smell, and touch. Too much THC, the main active ingredient in cannabis can do the opposite, so start low and go slow.
It depends on a person’s tolerance for THC, as well as their response to the aromatic molecules in cannabis called terpenes. Leafly reviewers say indica hybrids like Wedding Cake are the most arousing. For low-tolerance consumers, a balanced CBD:THC strain like CBD OG, or The Gift can reduce anxiety while stimulating the senses. Conversely, high-tolerance high-sex drive consumers will experiment with high-THC hybrids and sativa strains that can add stamina and a psychedelic dimension to intimacy, lengthening intercourse while creating the feeling of stopped time. Cheers to that.
