Sex Doll Brothels. Nonmonogamy. Virtual Reality. There’s no end to the things people are willing to do to increase both the quantity and quality of the sex they’re having. And why wouldn’t that be the case? Sex is good. Good sex is great. And great sex is something too few people ever get to enjoy.

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.

We gathered up the best weed for sex — cannabis strains to stoke the fires burning inside you. If you’re looking to hop aboard and enjoy the ride, check them out. And if you have any recommendations for other strains worth checking out, get all up in the comments and make your case. We can’t/ won’t complain about more ways to enhance sex.

Bubblegum Kush

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.

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.

Trainwreck

This strain is a sativa heavy hybrid that only comes in at 10 percent indica. That means it’s an intense cerebral high that elevates your mood and kicks in some euphoria, but it also gives you a little bit of that warm, sensual body buzz. And though the name seems completely appropriate for hook-ups that include sloppy messes, the name refers to a legit train wreck that happened near the original grow sight; it caused the two brothers who created the strain to harvest early in order to avoid detection.

When it comes to flavor, Trainwreck tends to be earthy and citrusy, but many users also note the presence of both pine and pepper notes. The high THC content is good for obliterating pain, so many people recommend it for fringe sex with the potential for discomfort. Although, it’s worth noting that a lot of sex that hurts is supposed to, so this may be a more appropriate strain for the apprehensive BDSM attempter than anyone else.

Granddaddy Purple

A fairly famous indica cross of Purple Urkle and Big Bud, Granddaddy Purple hit the California scene in the early 2000s and made a name for itself by providing both a mental sense of euphoria and a physical sense of relaxation. Some people laughingly refer to it as green Viagra because of this. Users really enjoy the beautiful, dreamy buzz, which lends itself nicely to slow, intimate sexual encounters. Users not preoccupied with getting off use it to relieve stress and pain, so it’s great for relaxing inhibitions as it increases sensations of pleasure. Good stuff, no?

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

A sativa-dominant hybrid rolling in at 55 percent, Jack Herer is named for a lifelong cannabis activist, and really, could there be a higher compliment? When it comes to getting busy while using it, there are a few noteworthy aspects. Firstly, it acts quickly and comes on with a bracing headrush that transitions into some fun tingling that works its way down the body. Plus, because it provides simultaneous relaxation and a mental buzz, it’s amazing for easing into sexy times and keeping the mind active and creative. Visualizations are markedly enhanced, so consider fantasy play or foreplay that includes reading erotica or whispering what you desire in each other’s ears.

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.

Jillybean

Looking to get a little creative? This strain will make incorporating novel acts into your sexual playlist a breeze. It is indica-dominant, but you get more mental stimulation than you would think given its makeup. Expect a big rush of euphoria and a gentle body high — a combo which is great for feeling creative and social. It is good times for things like dirty talk, dress up, and roleplay. Don’t be surprised to find yourself suggesting things you have always wanted to try but have felt tentative broaching with your partner. It’s very kink-friendly.

There is one area of concern. This is a strain that can cause dry eyes and cottonmouth. Any time you see those symptoms, it means mucus membranes dry up and that’s not great for vaginal lubrication, so people who are prone to dryness should proceed with caution. Otherwise, this tasty strain with its notes of mango and pineapple is awesome.

Sour Diesel

Sour D is a supremely popular sativa-dominant strain that acts fast and gives users a rush of energy coupled with some spacey cerebral effects. It literally stimulates synaptic activity in the brain, so it’s a bit of a soaring high tempered by a little bit of physical relaxation. People who love this strain for enhancing sex do so because it triggers insatiability. This is a real lust generator perfect for the kind of sex where partners feel their hearts racing, their skin growing hot, and their desire mounting. It’s a real “harder, faster” situation, and if someone doesn’t gasp, “Don’t stop” it’s the exception rather than the rule.

You know that the effects of Sour Diesel must be awesome because the name is a reference to the taste, which is a lot like gasoline with some musk and pine sap. And the smoke comes on sour and a bit skunky before taking on some ammonia notes. It’s not tasty flower. But it is hella fun.

Purple Princess

When it comes to fairytales, this strain is more Baby Bear than tiara-wearing heroine. The indica-dominant hybrid can sneak up on you, but it only reaches a medium level effect — leaving you neither couchlocked nor buzzing with energy. It’s just right. Purple Princess has relatively low THC, so the uplift in mood is very slight and it operates more on a physical level, relieving stress and pain. This high creeps up on you, so don’t keep vaping or smoking in an effort to get an effect, or you will end up too stoned to be much good. Instead, hit it and get into some foreplay until a general feeling of contentment settles in. Once you are good and relaxed, it’s time to use the creativity and introspection it engenders to try out some fresh moves.

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.

Atomic Northern Lights

A 60 percent leaning indica, Atomic Northern Lights is noteworthy for its psychoactivity, which has been measured at between 14 and 24 percent. Because of that, users generally get some sensory distortion — which can be fun when erotic acts are on the table. Sounds and lights, for instance, may take on new significance or intensity, and that psychedelic enhancement makes a lot of people turn to films and albums that are on the trippy side. But the dreamy feeling is just as apt for viewing your partner in a new light and engaging in some sensation play with a feather tickler or nipple clamps. Expect an increased feeling of camaraderie as well, making this strain perfect for maximizing intimacy.

If you like a skunky, pungent flower, then Atomic Northern Lights will be a favorite because it has some incense notes that become pronounced when you break open the bud. Warning: the smoke will be pretty acrid and harsh, leaving your eyes stinging. It’s better for vaping, which lets you taste some pine and pepper on the exhale (something you miss when you smoke it).

Strawberry Cough

A lot of cannabis strain names have no relevance to the flavors or effects of the bud, but that is so not the case with Strawberry Cough — which smells and tastes like sweet berries and can cause the biggest stoners to hack when they use it. It’s a sativa blend that hits users fast and sharpens focus in a big way. A lot of people use it and enjoy engaging in deep conversations or reading dense texts. But, when it comes to getting busy, the mental clarity coupled with the increase in intense cerebral thinking makes it great for getting into fringe acts and fetishes. Power play can be particularly fun with this strain, especially if you and your partner struggle over who gets to retain control. It’s essentially sex chess. And as the average Strawberry Cough high lasts for up to four hours, you will have a lot of time to play.

If you are the sort of person who just cannot get past the skunky taste of most cannabis, give this strain a try for sure. The taste is pure ripe strawberries without any musk at all, and when you exhale it, the sweet notes intensify. It is really, really yummy.

Kali Dog

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.

Bruce Banner

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.

The strain comes from a blend of OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel, so it has both the diesel and sweet aromas and flavors associated with those strains. It’s also a little earthy. It’s not the tastiest bud on the list, but Bruce Banner is enjoyable enough to smoke, and the stunning impact on your sex life makes it totally worth it.

G13

This is a strain with some pretty fun urban legends attached to it. Depending on who you ask, it was developed at some time in the 60s by either the CIA, FBI, or another clandestine operation who gathered the most powerful strains in the world to combine into a super strain. Then, after a decade or so of experimentation, the final strain was perfected in 1970 at a mega-secret installation at the University of Mississippi. Pretty cool origin story overall. If you opt to use some G13, be prepared for some serious THC levels that top over 20 percent. It’s pretty great because you will get body tingles from head to toe as well as instant euphoria. Layering those feelings over an orgasm makes things incredibly intense, magnifying pleasure for you and your partner.

When you take a whiff of G13, you are gonna pick up some sweet citrus, and that is also true of the flavor, which has hints of grapefruit, mandarin orange, and a bit of earthiness. It is decently tasty. But, as with other tasty, high THC strains, letting the flavor convince you to smoke too much can leave you feeling dazed and heavy, so beware.

Blueberry Yum Yum

We might not turn to Ludacris to help us make all of our decisions, but we do have a fair amount of trust in him when it comes to both weed and sex guidance. If his song “Blueberry Yum Yum” is to be believed, this strain tastes good and is the perfect foundation for finding “a woman that skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet.” Luda gets it. This sativa-dominant hybrid is well-balanced with a full spectrum of both psychoactive and physical traits for all your skeeting needs. Users will enjoy a toasty sense of euphoria followed by an increase in fast-paced free association and a bit of a body buzz. It is great for hooking up in ways that engage both your mind and your body. Get creative.

This bud definitely has a blueberry aroma, but users will also pick up earthy, minty, and piney notes. Plus, it can get a bit skunky when it’s pulled apart or broken up in a grinder. The smoke is super tasty with a sweet aftertaste that complements its strong flavors of berry and pine.

Headbanger

People looking to channel the 1960s with a little free loving and a psychedelic flair will find Headbanger a perfect strain. The high comes on slowly, but it can make sights and sounds appear sharper. That sensory enhancement can be further amplified by playing some trippy tunes for some really mind-altering results. This is the time to lean into these effects by smoking a bowl, putting on some Spiritualized, turning on a blacklight or two, and exploring your partner’s body. Bonus points if you can make your lover moan or scream. Given the uptick in cerebral activity that Headbanger triggers, that shouldn’t be too difficult.

This strain has a pretty hashy flavor profile because it is a cross of Biker Kush and Sour Diesel, which is notoriously strong tasting. The flower typically has a fuel aroma with notes of skunkiness, but that gives way to some sweet citrus when you grind it. And, even given all of this, on the exhale, there is some of the funky sweetness of overripe fruit that isn’t at all unpleasant.
