In the words of the illustrious Salt-N-Pepa, let’s talk about sex, baby, let’s talk about you and me—or in our case, let’s talk about you and weed. It’s no secret that cannabis can take your sexy time to another level and we’re certainly not the first generation to make this intimate connection.
In fact, ancient Hindu texts describe cannabis as one of the five sacred plants and an integral part of the Tantric ritual. Cannabis was also used in Soviet-era Russia to ease the nerves of virgins and is still used today as an impotence drug in Western Uganda.
With weed’s potential to help you relax, lower your inhibitions, and increase heighten your senses, it just makes sense that the two go together.
