Sex and Marijuana – Making Orgasms Easier?

BY MARIA DEL RUSSO

The Truth About Sex and Marijuana

It should come as no surprise: research indicates that when it comes to Sex and Marijuana, quality orgasms are directly correlated.

“We’ve got data that suggests that enhanced orgasm for women [who use cannabis before sex] is common, with the caveat that most products are not exactly lubricants,” says Dr. Mitch Earleywine, a professor of psychology at the University of Albany and author of the book Understanding Marijuana: A New Look At The Scientific Evidence. “The perception of slowed time seems to be part of the story, as orgasms appear to last longer.”

Antuanette Gomez, CEO of Pleasure Peaks, a cannabis women’s sexual health company, is steadfast in her assertion that cannabis and orgasm are inextricably linked. “It’s a vasodilator, like Viagra, so there’s more blood flow to your genitals when you use cannabis,” she says. “[It’s partially] why your eyes get red when you smoke. It increases circulation, which increases sensitivity and arousal.” Both she and Earleywine mention that women in particular report benefits to using cannabis during sex. “Cannabis lets you put your ego aside, so you’re way more open, and you give in to those urges,” Gomez says. “So when you have a person in front of you, and you’re smoking pot, it’s more intimate.”

sex and marijuanaAccording to Gomez, the key to finding the best strain and format for you and your sexual experience is to pinpoint exactly what it is you’re looking for. “Not all sex is the same,” she explains. “Edibles are great for going on a date because they have a longer effect and give you a more intimate mood. Think slow and sensual sex.” More interested in sweaty jackrabbit sex? You should definitely smoke something, then. “Go for a higher sativa strain,” Gomez says. “Smoking sativa is great for a quickie.”

The reason women seem to especially experience the benefits of sex and marijuana use is that it allows them to get out of their heads and into the moment, according to Earleywine. In fact, stress and anxiety are some of the main reasons why women occasionally struggle to achieve orgasm. But with sex and marijuana, “women report feeling more closeness with a partner, and data from the ‘60s suggests [they feel] ‘more energy exchange’ as well as ‘connections on a deeper level,’” Earleywine says. “Women who have trouble ‘spectatoring,’ or not feeling in the moment during sexual encounters, claim that cannabis can help.”

Gomez sees things the same way. The Sativa strain can be great for people who have anxiety, or have a hard time relaxing during sex because sativa creates more of a head high, she explains. Gomez also says that CBD is great for that, too, since it can calm your brain down. Indica, on the other hand, is great for people who tend to physically tense up during sex. Gomez also suggests playing around with hybrid blends to find the one that works best for you.

It’s important to remember, though, that different strains might affect different people in different ways. Earleywine says that the way you experience cannabis is tied to how much you dose, and knowing how much to take is definitely a learned skill. When it comes to dosing, “start small and go slow,” Gomez says. Start with a little and then add a little bit more if you feel like you can handle it. The sweet spot is out there somewhere.

Gomez also recommends masturbating while under the influence before bringing a partner into the mix. “This really allows you to get to know yourself and how the cannabis affects your sex life,” Gomez explains. “It’s a great way to make you less ego-driven.” And once you’re ready to bring in your partner, make sure they’re aware that you’re using, and that you’re prepared for the after effects of your orgasm. “Orgasm can be intense when you’re using cannabis,” Gomez warns. In other words, you want to make sure that your partner will be supportive and aware of your mindset. But not to worry—the more you use cannabis during sex, the more you’ll know how it will affect you, and eventually, everything will fall into place.

All in all, though, the message seems pretty clear: Sex and Marijuana go together like peanut butter and jelly.

It isn’t just about marijuana in Colorado; hemp farming also is taking off

There will be no lines around the block. There will be no TV news crews nosing in for interviews. There will be no pot-puffing customers celebrating their newfound freedom.

But the dawn of legal hemp in Colorado, which begins Saturday, is as significant — if not more so — as were the first sales of recreational marijuana two months ago.
Saturday marks the first day farmers interested in growing industrial hemp for commercial purposes or for research and development can register with the Colorado Department of Agriculture to do so legally.

Recreational Marijuana Legalization Makes It to Official Ballot in Alaska

Legalizing recreational marijuana had made it to the official ballot in Alaska as confirmed by Mead Treadwell, the state’s lieutenant governor. The recreational marijuana initiative petition 13PSUM notice of proper filing was posted on the government of Alaska’s website. The proposition would be put on the election ballot for the Primary Election on August 19, 2014.

Marijuana taxes to fund school building

Proposition AA to legalize recreational marijuana passed statewide in Colorado in November 2013, and set excise and sales taxes for retail marijuana sales. Although El Paso County and Colorado Springs have voted to ban retail establishments within the county and city, local schools will still get a financial benefit from recreational legalization.

The Building Excellent Schools Today Act was passed in 2008 to assist districts statewide and the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind in Colorado Springs with grants and bond guarantees to replace, upgrade or repair classroom buildings. The Colorado Department of Education estimates districts in the state are behind by about $18 billion in deferred maintenance expenses and deficient buildings’ replacement costs statewide.

The first $40 million garnered each year by recreational cannabis excise taxes are earmarked for the BEST fund (as mandated in Amendment 64). School districts, charter schools and CSDB can apply each year to help pay for capital expenses. In the 2013 grant year, Peyton District 23-JT received $174,000 to upgrade the HVAC and security systems at the elementary school. In 2012, Calhan District RJ-1 received more than $1 million for safety and security upgrades.

Legalize marijuana group sets up shop in Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) — One group is hoping to change marijuana laws in Texas. The Marijuana Policy Project helped to pass Colorado’s recreational marijuana laws back in 2012, and now they’re setting up shop here in Austin.

The Marijuana Policy Project says they’re giving themselves five years to legalize marijuana in Texas. They’ve already helped pass similar laws in 19 other states, and now they’re bringing that same game plan to The Lone Star State.

“People in Texas think that change is impossible,” said Rob Kampia, The Marijuana Project’s executive director. “When I say our plan is five years, they’re sometimes surprised that it’s such a short term plan, but I think its completely reasonable.”

The Epilepsy Foundation supports Alabama bill that would legalize medical marijuana oil

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) –

A national foundation announced support for laws that would make CBD, an oil derived from marijuana, legal for people suffering from seizures.

The Epilepsy Foundation announced its support for bills and laws like Carly’s Law Feb. 20. Dustin Chandler, Carly’s father, said the backing from the Epilepsy Foundation is “huge.” He’s hoping the new support will help Carly’s Law get out of the Alabama Senate and move the Alabama House.

Chandler said he’s fighting not only for his daughter Carly but for hundreds of other parents who have to watch their children take a cocktail of drugs to control their seizures.

“We have got children that suffer that need help,” said Chandler.

With support from the Epilepsy Foundation, Chandler said he feels progress in Montgomery may move a little faster.

Will Marijuana’s Decriminalization Ruin This Company?

Bob Dylan once sang, “Oh, the times they are a-changin’.” While these lyrics are not directly tied to marijuana — although Mr. Dylan has certainly written many on the subject — they are certainly apt when you consider America’s attitude toward pot. Could changing attitudes present a risk to correctional companies?

America’s mellowing out on marijuana
A recent CNN poll found that support for legalizing marijuana is soaring, with 55% of respondents supporting the legal use. This poll isn’t an outlier; the results are consistent with other marijuana-related surveys. In short, people are becoming more comfortable with marijuana usage. Matter of fact, the survey notes that in 1987, 70% of respondents viewed smoking pot as morally wrong, today that number is 35%.

It’s important to note the wording of this question. This question references the legalization of marijuana, something that has been enacted by very few legislatures. Many states have taken a mini-step: decriminalization. Although the words legalization and decriminalization sound similar, they are very different: Legalization is the formal process of making something legal; decriminalization is to punish offenses by means other than prison.

The mythology of marijuana

Over the course of my 52-year professional career as a forensic pathologist and medicolegal consultant, I have been involved in numerous civil and criminal lawsuits dealing with various kinds of drugs — prescription, over-the-counter and illicit. Some of these cases have been quite significant, including a few that have been the subject of congressional hearings.

Product liability and medical malpractice lawsuits involving drugs frequently result in multimillion-dollar verdicts. In other instances, the determination of which drugs may have led to someone’s death may provide the evidentiary basis for charging the provider with homicide.

Occasionally, some questions and doubts remain among medical practitioners as to the effectiveness of a particular drug and when it should be prescribed. However, almost all drug-related issues of this sort eventually get resolved. Some dangerous drugs have been removed from the marketplace, while others have been modified. Many times, pharmaceutical companies have been obliged to issue more definitive warnings about potential adverse drug reactions. There have been few long-lingering debates of a highly contentious, emotional nature.

Can Marijuana Kill You?

A recent headline reads: “Can Marijuana Kill You? German Scientists Say Yes.” The article focuses on a study of two (count ’em, two!) young men who died while they had detectable levels of THC in their blood. I take a lot of pleasure in this kind of melodrama. If prohibitionists are stooping this low, we must really be frightening them. (It’s not completely pharmacologically ridiculous. Marijuana does increase heart rate. In fact, it can jack up heart rate almost as much as an espresso or energy drink. Maybe if you already had a weak heart and a coffee and a bong hit, well, something might happen.)

But I want to point out that we should actually expect literally thousands of reports like this. We should hear about lots of people who have heart attacks on the same day that they commune with the plant. It’s not because cannabis causes heart attacks. It’s simple chance.

I hate for my first blog as Chair of The Executive Board to be this nerdy, but I’ve been teaching statistics for more than 20 years. If that doesn’t make me a nerd, I’m not sure what would. But given how many people use cannabis daily and how many heart attacks occur in the United States, it’s actually a miracle that we haven’t heard about this kind of thing before. We also should expect to hear it a lot more often.
