Does Marijuana Increase The Female Libido?


Purple NugIs Marijuana ‘Viagra’ For Women?

by Kelley Chronic

When Viagra hit the market back in the late 1990s, it was hoped that a women’s form would be close behind. Many different experiments… and quite a few failures later, the trial and error process continues with women waiting anxiously for their version of a relationship enhancing pill.

While the ladies pill seems to be held up in pharmaceutical limbo, there is one way of loosening up the female libido, the use of marijuana. Throughout human history, pot has been shown to have the ability to heighten the females sex drive while, heightening their sensual awareness.  The close association between marijuana consumption and a female’s sexual arousal is hardly new. Throughout human history many early societies consumed marijuana specifically for this purpose. As marijuana is researched and dissected for all of its potential health benefits, the study of marijuana use and how it may benefit a female’s sexual satisfaction has yet to receive the clinical studies that it’s so righteously deserves.

With a life that is bombarded by bills, responsibilities and time constraints; many psychologists believe that it is these life stressors which rob females of a healthy sex life. As females get older, the variables which have a bearing on their sexual dysfunction tend to increase. Sexual dysfunction is a broad-based term for which there is no single reason, nor magic bullet to cure. Pain during intercourse, spousal conflicts, childbirth, and a host of other ailments all play a role in the female libido and her ability to feel “turned on.”

Jill Lopez is a newlywed who works in advertising sales. She also recently started a master’s degree program. The course load coupled with her regular work schedule has her feeling “stressed and tired.” That stress has overflowed into her sex life. Jill openly admits that using marijuana helps her feel less anxious about her day-to-day routine and increases her libido. ” I feel relaxed and stimulated at the same time,” she says. [Source]

As both a female and one who carries a large amount of responsibility, Rihanna has been doing her own studies on marijuana and the female sex drive. In the news over the last few days, “pot’s Princess” has been using her social networking skills to inform any and all who might listen that her new favorite book is “sex pot:  the marijuana lover’s guide to get it on.” The author, who goes by the name of Mamakind, states that marijuana is a known aphrodisiac of the gods and on that point, I would have to agree.

Not surprising…the few scientific studies on marijuana and the human sex drive, which does exist, tend to be myopically focused on testosterone levels, and how they are affected in men.

Here’s a quick video showing professional women and the role marijuana plays in their daily lives.

About Author


  1. I came online to try to find some answers. I am now 40 but have never really been able to have pain free penetration. The only time I get turned on at all is when I am stoned. I usually smoke an indica as I have it for sleep and pain issues. Without it I would have no interest in sex at all, it is the only way I can get turned on but not going all the way to penetration. It has caused issues with my husband as understandably he is upset that I am not interested unless I am stoned. He also feels that when I am stoned I am not really present and my mind is elsewhere. We tried the other night when I was not stoned and it was a bit of a disaster. I have never smoked Sativas as my mind goes a little frantic, but I have been reading that a 30/70 split maybe better. It is an issue with the indica not drifting off to sleep in the middle of things. Without it I would have no sex life what so ever. The issues I find along with my mind going to very random places it the dryness, my mouth is so dry I have to drink every few minutes which is a bit of a passion killer in it’s self. I have no idea why I have no sex drive without it, I am terrified that it will cause problems with my husband, for the record he does not touch cannabis as it does nothing for him. I must also point out that orgasms whilst being stoned can often be mind blowing.

    20% minimum if you want to arouse chicks or if you are chick soon to be aroused.
    I’d also recommend an indica so you get the body high,I’ve noticed the women I’ve been with really like the effects of a strong indica(25%-29%) such as Obama Kush,Purple Elephant,or Power Kush.(though there are a lot of other really good indicas as well,but the ones I mentioned are usually instock at dispensaries.

  3. all good things in moderation.I had a girlfriend who smoked constantly like yours. It’s like a few drinks can keep a man hard and counter premature ejaculation, but too much alcohol and he won’t even get it up.
    When she smoked once a week she was a total horn bag, but when she started going all day every day her sex drive died and she started becoming a utter bitch who was always looking for her next cone.It became all that mattered to her.

    All good things in moderation. If your girl is smoking that much every day she’s the pot equivalent of an alcoholic.
    If she was say smoking it once a day once a week, you’d notice the difference.

    I bet she has a high tolerance for weed now smoking more than one should or needs to get high. Get her to take a break for a month or two. Then just a cone or two should get her ripped for most of a day and the pleasant effects will return.

    Seriously if she was drinking scotch from 8am to 10pm would you not see a problem with it?

    Oh and unlike shit like booze, weed is not addictive. Any ‘withdrawals’ are in peoples heads and such effects will pass in a few days.

    So the article is accurate, it’s your GF who is bullshit. Make her clean up her act.

  4. It’s all about the quantity: I use a vapor pen for arthritis and I never get high, just enough to take care of my pain. I am 41 and my libido has suffered for 15 years due to pain, raising children, etc. Marijuana has been a game changer and I love it (my husband is also very ecstatic).

    Certain strains of pot increase my libido and the orgasms are off the chart compared to not using pot. Also at 61 now, I can easily go for sessions with the ole lady that last up to 3 hours without Viagra or Cialis we sometimes have as many as three sessions a day.
    Obviously I am sold on it being an aphrodisiac.

  6. Love your story. I was a little apprehensive about mentioning pot smoking in my book but life after 40 has been gr8 since I started back. I hadn’t smoked in over 20 yrs. I believe I just appreciate the experience more. I suffer from migraines so I do smoke to lessen the pain. I just wish I had a more peaceful place to get…sneaking and smoking is no fun at all. I get a lot chores done tough. P.S…only squirted once and it scared the hell out of me. JEALOUS

  7. J.d. I love having sex with my husband while high…I just wonder why it takes me so long to orgasm? I love the feeling but it can get intense!

  8. I’m a 39 year old female. Sex has been good for me, but not as good as I would like all my life. As I hit my 30’s my sex drive decreased…. a lot. Just lost interest. I was never able to orgasm during sex without manual stimulation, or a man going down on me for at least an hour. I started smoking weed about 2 years ago, but only to manage pain. Ended up having a total hip replacement at 38. Dr.s could not figure out why I was in so much pain. Had me maxed out on medications, so a friend told me to smoke some weed to help with the pain. So I did it only on weekends until my surgery 6/2014. Around March 2015 a friend told me it helps him with his anxiety, which I do have. I pondered on it. I mean what would happen if I got caught??? Ehh…I gave it a chance. Lets just say I’ve been a regular smoker now for the past 6 months. BUT….the kicker, things have changed…LOL. I noticed about 3 months ago that if I think about sex, I get so hot. So I dabbled in masturbating. HOLY SHIT…..I didn’t know I could feel the things I did. And even got myself to squirt. Yea..hid that from my husband for a while. Now when I smoke, everything seems to turn me on. Driving in a car, staring out in the woods, staring up at the sky, a certain touch. My legs always seem to go numb first from my feet to my knees…just such an intense feeling. And even when I don’t smoke, I stay horny as hell. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. Just sharing my story. I truly believe that weed has changed something in me….for the better!!! My most favorite spot to smoke is a little swimming hole up the road from me. Quiet, peaceful, and the sound of the water is so intense!! Drives husband nuts I go there a lot, but Im hoping he will understand in time.

  9. When I smoke I can imagine all sorts of things happening to me when I lay down with my husband. Euphoric is the word.

  10. One of my ex-partner was doing her studies at while she was with me, therefore under big stress and had absolutely no interest in sex. Sometime she took space cookies and then she is relaxed and can enjoy sex. Under normal circumstances she was not able to come during normal intercourse, when she was high she did without being touched. I think here it helped, in other cases it doesn’t. It is like all medication, everyone reacts differently.

  11. This article reminds me of part of a chapter from Author Taylor Marie “Loving Infidelity”
    The kush began to fondle Infidelity as she
    felt the seat of the Jeep move beneath her.
    His body weight upon the Jeep caused it to rock as he thrust his fingers
    deep inside her pussy. Her vaginal walls
    lovingly caressed his fingers as he fingered her hot, juicy walls. He began to push downward as he kissed her
    harder and held her hand in his tighter.

    “Mmmm,” Infidelity moaned. She opened her eyes to see him staring into
    hers. His grin seemed to say, “I told
    you this is like nothing you’ve ever had before.” Infidelity placed her feet upon the dashboard
    and looked up at the rooftop. She felt
    utterly euphoric as he fucked her with only his fingers, all five of them. She met his thrusts by raising her buttocks
    and pressing with her feet firmly against the dashboard. In. Out. Back and forth, they swayed. It wasn’t long before the sensitivity of the Kush
    caused Infidelity to feel like his mouth was devouring her love box. She actually thought that he had moved down to
    taste of her sweetness but that was until she looked down and saw that he still
    had his fingers in her. Never had any
    man fingered her so delectably and sensually.

    Occasional had a way of making her body
    respond like it never had before, and he didn’t mind satisfying her and walking
    away with his dick still hard in his pants. He knew that if he satisfied her
    today, she’d be back tomorrow.

    “Oh my God. I am about to cum, baby. Yes, yes, yessss, ye….,” she stammered as she
    reached climax. Her orgasms seemed to
    betray her as she felt what seemed to be her bladder releasing.

  12. The new pill addi is out but seeing how expensive and full of side effects it is my own advice to any woman I know would be try a glass of white wine or a glass of marijuana milk instead that are natural things and not a chemical with further possible unknown harm that may be discovered after many years. There are also a huge range of other herbal products such as horny goat weed, safed musli, balsam flower tea etc. that may be examined

  13. I agree I smoke it all the time me and my husband and every time I smoke it I am horny as fuck

  14. Sunshine_state on

    My gf smokes every hour on the hour from 8 am to 10 pm every day. Sex twice a month is a rare occasion, such as my birthday. When she runs out of weed? She’s like a nympho. I’m calling bullshit on this article

  15. i dont even like sex. the only time i think it feels good is if im high. i have tried lots of things that are suppose to make sex feel better, but no matter what it just feels uncomfortable and kinda hurts. then i started to smoke weed and now i actually want to have sex on a daily, it doesnt need to be soft and slow, it no longer hurts! it feels great. the only problem i have now is if i smoke to much i get dizzy

  16. It’s just another way of smoking it. It’s used a lot with patients who are prescribed it legally for medical reasons. Marijuana that has been grown specifically for medical use is actually prepared in a way that it yields a better high when vaporized than it would if smoked.

  17. No. Several lovers have related the same experience to me. Of course, there’s stimulation and stimulation. You may not have been touched, or not expected to have sex that day (or within minutes) but you could have been thinking about sex or had a subconscious trigger. At any rate it’s not unknown or weird. You haven’t smoked enough times to fully associate being high with the kind of mindbending fuck it can help produce, but you have read about it and heard about it so that may be it.
    Enjoy! :)

  18. I’ve had a lot of sex, and I have always loved it and been very orgasmic. As fantastic as sex is “as is”, it is BETTER with weed!

    In every single instance I was wet and ready before even finishing the joint. Just playing with my nipples could have me ready without weed, but with it, my nipples would get even bigger, stiffer and more sensitive, and he’d have me begging for it.

    In every single instance my partner’s penis, even if of average size, felt MUCH larger and harder inside me.

    In every single instance I came twice (per session), usually one short one upon his entry and, variable amounts of time later, a second that was UNBELIEVEABLE…so extremely hard and long lasting it left me shaking. Sometimes, especially if we were doing it doggy-style, the pulsing and throbbing of his penis as he came could trigger a third for me.

    I am very noisy and vocal during sex and smoking made that better too. I was even more eager than usual to give head, and while receiving oral was usually just good foreplay for me, with weed I could come quickly, though I still much preferred intercourse.

    Does this answer the question? :)

  19. I’ve only smoked weed twice and both times within a few minutes, my libido went through the roof!! I got a furious hard-on without any sexual stimulation and all I wanted to do was have sex. Am I the only guy who has had this kind of reaction?

  20. how did you stop? I cant… I enjoy sex too much when I’m high….. I realize I have to, but like you that tingly sensation and boobs perking up is awesome! :(

  21. This article is right on. I’m a woman, and I’m medically high right now, and horny. It definitely improves the experience as well, but only if in moderation because too much and you’re falling asleep. I recommend wake n bake for this very reason.

  23. Very Normal to become aroused just being around marijuana…for us sensitive girls.
    I fell in love once in my life with a medical marijuana grower. He is now my X boyfriend. I always had a low sex drive before meeting him. I wondered why my sex drive was sooo high when he first came into my life. I remember laying next to him night after night wanting nothing but sex. For some reason he did not feel the same…even though he smoked it…and I never did. Then again he smoked a ridiculous amount 24/7 and I never smoked. He was always too tired to have sex. I was always turned on around him…I was even more full of life and more happy every time I went to his home…where he grew a large amount of weed in his basement. I remember telling him to smoke in another room away from me because I was always scared of weed. But the scent of weed always lingered in the air at his home and on his clothes and breath. It would be nice to think I was in love and my sex drive increased because of that. However after our break up…I felt depressed and wanted nothing but him back. I began to smoke medical marijuana with a friend who I was not at all attracted to. I started to see him in a different light. I also realized right away that I was absolutely 100% turned on. I was always horny. Needless to say I ended up having sex with my friend. Afterwards he would fall asleep and I would stay awake craving more sex. The next day I would want more sex…so badly that I was unable to concentrate on my duties at home or anywhere else. I would masturbate all day. I thought I was a rare case because of the intensity in the rise of my sex drive. I am new to smoking marijuana but because of the intense increase in my libido…I had to stop smoking it all together. I would end up having sex with most anyone thats how strongly it effected my sex drive…I couldn’t function smoking marijuana unless I had a full time boyfriend who did not mind staying home and having sex for days.

  24. I’m a closet vaper. My wife would freak if she knew. My wife of over 30 years gets horny after I vape ;-) The only explanation I have is it must release some tension in me that she responds favorably to. I’m more relaxed, happy, laughing and joking. Of course I’m horny too – even at 52 – always have been.(it’s a guy thing) Vaping can arouse me instantly though.

  25. My bf smokes it, I never have. But when we kiss after he takes a hit. I can become so sexually excited it’s just insane! Why?? Is this normal?

  26. Wondering if its true, one this is for sure Lean meat contains proteins that increase dopamine production, which in turn increases sexual satisfaction levels. Eating oats for breakfast can balance out both estrogen and testosterone levels.

    You can also consume natural aphrodisiacs such as ginseng and gingko. These aphrodisiacs act as vasodilators and, over a period of time, end up enhancing sexual desire. http://www.sizegurus.com

  27. A PH-Up PH-Down Question….when I adjust Ph up or down I use the GeneraI Hyrdoponics concentrated product and mix it with water on a 5:1 ratio before adding a splash to the to the nutrient tanks. I was told that that 5:1 mixture “knocks out some the nutrients” in the tank….I say no way as it only adjusts the Ph about .5 to 1.0 point depending on the existing levels…can anybody comment/validate his claim or agree with my view? Thanks

    Very interesting. Formal studies may be few and far between, but there have definitely been a lot of empirical studies. One of the many problems the Henry Anslingers of the world have: They can repeat their sick mantra that “marijuana has no medical value,” while millions of people who have experienced it know that’s just crap, just as people who have had mad marijuana sex already know the little secret this article reveals. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll: Now that’s a trinity I can support!

  29. Dr. Julie Holland author of The Pot Book. For the educated stoner, this is a must read. I have it on my Kindle.
    I have a different take on sex issue. Use it like a truth serum. If she is into you, pot will enhance the romance.

  30. Harry Anslinger claimed “marijuana caused white woman to seek relations with Negroes”
    Most girls I smoke with get horny , but I thought it was me!
    Who would have thought?

  31. I use a cannabis oil (FB, Golden’s Organic Healing Oil) and i love it! I apply a few drops of Golden’s Organic Healing Oil directly onto my vagina and instantly, i get warm and tingly, then true stimulation. My libido starts right up! My vagina muscles relax and finally sex is pleasurable again. LOL without the “high”.
