Best Strains for Sex

Weed and sex is a very interesting combination. It is all about finding that delicate balance by between that amount that just enough to elevate your senses but not too much that you are left in that lazy couch lock mode. Which no one wants when they have a nice of sensual activities on their agenda. So without further or do, here are some of the best strains out there for a fantastic sexual experience!

Sour Dream:

A sativa dominant hybrid that will first relax and lessen your stress. Then a light cerebral buzz begins with an energetic/lustful high and can result in a long night of fun

Voodoo:

Quite a euphoric sativa that, once the fun starts, you will have that extra stimulation to enjoy yourselves for quite a while. Any stress and anxiety slowly just melts away.

Shining Silver Haze:

Comes on rather quickly so be prepared to get right to it. It is also awesome at making any insecurities fade away, while allowing your confidence and sensuality shine through.

Dream Queen:

This sativa dominant hybrid elicits that energetic buzz, but this is not what makes this strain so special. The name says it all. Arousing your mind to wander to the far depths of your imagination. Maybe inspiring imagination in the bedroom as well..

Ultimate Trainwreck:

Your energy and euphoria will come on very quickly as well as increasing your focus. You will forsake be ready for whatever is coming your way with this strain. Not to mention the just overall increase of happiness that this strain also offers.

Granddaddy Purple:

Since this is such an indica heavy strain a little too much might leave you glued to the couch. But at the right dose it is amazing at helping the mind and body connect which leads to relaxation and heightened sensation when it comes to touch. Perfect for those looking to relax their minds and let their bodies take over for the night.

Mr. Nice:

This is a personal favorite for sex. Though it is an indica, so careful not to go overboard too much with this. But if you enhance with just the right amount it can lead to a great amount of pleasure. Mr. Nice is great at relaxing your body but still keeps the mental alertness there making for a very sensual experience.

Best Strains to Study With

Yes, you did read that correctly, STUDY! I know this might blow your mind because the stereotype of cannabis is that it leaves you in a lazy couch locked state. But on the contrary there are some strains that will give you a gentle kick you in the but and induce productivity.  Often times today, those in school reach for the drugs such as adderall, ritalin, or whatever hoping to bring about extreme productivity for that long to do list. Well what if you could get some similar productive and focused affects, without any of the negative side affects of these pharmaceuticals. This is something I have experimented with and was able to replace these drugs originally prescribed for ADHD with something a little more natural, aka cannabis.

Most of the strains used for studying are of the Sativa family. The sativa properties of these strains is what is going to leave you with elevated creativity, productivity, mood, and an elevated focus. This is what will allow you to medicinally enhance during the day, get everything you need to done, and not be left in a major couch lock.

So without further or do, I present the strains!

Green Crack:

This strain is literally exactly what it sounds like. This strain will manifest very quickly and hit you hard, so be a little careful with this one if you are sensitive to cannabis or if you are a beginning user. Though for those who are seasoned smokers and are really looking for a kick in the pants to get shit done that day- this strain is the perfect one for you.

Durban Poison:

This strain is a personal favorite. (I enhanced with it while writing this article to be honest). One thing I love about this strain is the creativity it produces, being already a pretty creative person this strain just seems to make it flow a little more easily. Especially on days when I am feeling a little stuck and like there is not that full flow that I am capable of. Durban Poison also great at increasing the focus, creative beings usually are all over the place (at least I am) and this strain helps reign that in to a productive way.

Grapefruit:

This is an extremely uplifting happy high! Great for when you have to get some stuff done that you maybe aren’t too excited to be doing. It also acts as a little burst of energy, to give you the little kick to start to get working on that term paper or long overdue project.

Jack Herer:

If you are a writer or work any little bit with creativity then this strain is for you. You get the sativa burst of energy from this strain most definitely. But I have noticed, after the first hit the creativity just starts flowing! Not to mention this is very clear headed, so you are able to put those creative thoughts to action.

Mothers Helper:

This is a hybrid between Chocolope and Northern Lights #5, which are both known themselves to work as mood boosters. So mothers helper is known to have acquired that quality as well. Along with the euphoric creativity it leaves you with, you will be uplifted and focused while working.

 

Music and Cannabis

*I have some exciting other articles coming about strains specifically for the festival and concert atmosphere, so this post will mostly consist of strains that enhance your sensory perception of the music itself*1

The main connection between marijuana and music is that marijuana works on the part of the brain where auditory stimulation is processed. This gives some reason as to why we are more sensitive when listening to music under the influence of cannabis. The user often times finds it easier to recall lyrics, differentiate sounds/other subtleties in the music with a little expansive help of cannabis. One big reason why we are better able to remember lyrics to music is because of the fact that a large amount of cannabinoid receptors are located in the hippocampus, which is known for its role in formation of memories.

Personally the ability to really dive deep into the music, decipher the lyrics and listen to the subtle sounds of the music is one of my favorite parts of the famous weed-music combination. As well as, cannabis is known to aid in entering a more relaxed state, which allows you to really notice the other senses. It really allows you to relax and tune into what your body is noticing or feeling at that moment. Which also aids in your overall musical experience.

Music and weed can be quite the amazing combination. There are far too many genres of music to count and the same just so happens to go for strains of weed available at our fingertips today. Whether you are into pop or hardcore house music there is something to accommodate every music mood you could have.

Genres:

Hip Hop: Chronic

For this one I choose something that elevates the mood, but most hip hop artists are known for their love of the indica dominant strains. So this is why Chronic is perfect way to go. Being a hybrid you will get that uplifted, giggly and smiling ear to ear high. But you also will get a mellow rush over you so that you can really chill and just enjoy the music.

House/EDM: Trainwreck

To keep yourself up and lively for the loud bass and late night house concerts you are going to want something that slightly mimics the psychedelic affects you would get from other party drugs, but also something so much safer then those alternatives. This is where the strain Trainwreck comes into play. This is a strong sativa, so you will be uplifted, wanting to dance, excited, and just loving the energy around you. This is a personal favorite strain for festival use. Personally the other drugs can be a lot for my system so I always stick with this strain and I feel as if I am on the same level as those on psychedelics, yet so much more in control of my body. This strain allows tension in the body to melt away, making room for the euphoria to come in.

Rock: LSD

This was an interesting choice, but I felt it was a nice fit. LSD brings along with the release of tension and anxiety, leaving you in a giggly, happy go lucky kind of mood. Also from personal experience, out of all the strains mentioned in this article, LSD has the most affects on the way you listen to music. I found myself noticing parts and sounds of songs I had not ever heard before. It was so nice to have my mind opened like that to even a familiar song.

Indie: Harlequin

When listening to alternative music, the atmosphere is usually a little more chill then that of a rock concert so I choose a personal favorite CBD strain. Harlequin is a sativa dominant so you will get a little bit of that focused affect while accompanied by the relaxation and release of tension throughout the entire body. You are energized but the CBD subtracts the paranoia that can sometimes be accompanied by a Sativa. Perfect for a sunday morning chill sesh.

RnB: Tangie

At first I had trouble with this one but then the answer screamed out at me. I had made a playlist with all my favorite RnB songs a few months ago and had named it after the strain I was smoking while creating it. Tangie. What a wonderful strain, I felt instantly creative and uplifted yet my head was very clear. It put me in a zen like head space and then the desire and motivation to create swept over me and I put together this playlist. Not to mention the bud itself has a citrus-y aroma that is intoxicating in itself.

Reggae: Lambs Bread

In honor of one of Reggaes biggest faces, I choose s strain that was one of Mr. Marleys favorite and that is Lambs Bread. This strain was born and bread in Jamaica and being a sativa it will heighten your mood. While also bringing along with it deep peace and introspection. Which is the perfect combination when laying on a beach and listening to smoke reggae. It allows you to still be lively, yet relaxed and uplifted. And lets be real who doesn’t get automatically happy when listening to one of bobs songs.

 

 

 

Now go listen to some good music and enjoy some good weed.
