Aphrodisiac Cannabis

Informal studies have shown that more than two thirds of the population experience aphrodisiac effects when using Cannabis.

India’s Ayurvedic and Unani Tibbi medicine systems have utilized Cannabis to overcome impotence, raise libido, and as a general cure for disease. 


Tantric Cannabis rituals date back to 700 A.D. and help the users achieve Nirvana by escaping suffering and gaining knowledge and enlightenment. Elaborate rituals were created to this end, celebrating sexual union and kundalini yoga.

The Cannabis high for these Indian rituals was not obtained through smoking, but rather through a traditional drink called Bhang. Considered a sacred medicinal drink to this day, Bhang resembles a spiced chai but with a milkshake consistency. Bhang is said to ward off evil spirits, heal the body, bring good fortune, and cleanse people of sins.

Anthropologists have linked Cannabis use in India to the goddess Kali, and note that psychotropic effects come from the female (flowering) part of the plant. As a result, the sacred use of Cannabis was more popular in regions where there was some form of goddess worship.

Buddhist monks and ascetics have been using Cannabis to decrease sexual desire and achieve union with the spirit of oneness. Thus the duality of Cannabis continues to prove that individual differences in the user, plant varieties, and dosage can change it’s effect on libido.

THC releases dopamine in the brain but also stimulates a neurochemical called anandamide. This is a naturally occurring cannaboid receptor that is labeled the “bliss molecule”.

Studies of the body and brain after consuming Cannabis show that testosterone levels surge upon intake and then plummet. However, in low dosages the testosterone peaks longer and the subsequent drop is less.

Appropriate dosages can heighten sexual climax and aid in partner bonding, increased stamina, length and power of orgasms, loving interaction, and tactile sensation. With higher doses sexual desire decreases, causing dysfunction and erectile issues.

Informal studies have shown that more than two thirds of the population experience aphrodisiac effects when using Cannabis.

While critics are quick to cite research linking infertility to Cannabis use, there has been no evidence of lowered reproductive rates in populations who consume Cannabis regularly.

There’s no documentation of fetal damage when exposed to Cannabis in utero and use is not attributed to increase risky sexual behavior or to cause the user to act overtly sexual.
