‘Lighting Up’ Your Sex Life: New Science Debunks Old Beliefs
What’s good about pot and sex is still good, according to the latest studies. And the “downside” may not be true. A Harvard research team recently found – contrary to dated reports – that marijuana users consistently have higher sperm counts than non-users (and possibly higher testosterone levels as well). Meanwhile, a 2017 Stanford study confirmed anecdotal reports that cannabis users – both male and female – tended to have more sex than non-users. The biology behind these findings is still being studied, and social factors could figure in (the mere act of using an illicit drug creates excitement on its own). This panel will consider whether lighting up really can light up your sex life, and will discuss market-targeted products like CBD-based massage oils and lubricants, tinctures and “passion pen” vaporizers.
