Cannabis is one of humanity's oldest aphrodisiacs; however, precisely how getting high affects your sex life depends on the individual. Whether it'll boost or zap your libido hinges on factors including, but not limited to, your personality, level of experience, whether you smoke or vape - and, of course, the cannabis you're consuming.
Marijuana an Aphrodisiac?
To that last point, Pineapple Jack is being hailed by some users as a sex strain par excellence. The sativa-dominant hybrid, "known for giving users a happy, euphoric, relaxed feeling," according to Fusion's Taryn Hillin, combines the soaring, blissed-out effects of Jack Herer and Pineapple genetics to engender a weightless euphoria.
But that's not all it does, according to Hillin: "I also like Pineapple Jack because it's a powerful aphrodisiac—as in, five minutes after vaping it, I want sex. Like now." While this "definitely isn't the most potent strain on the market," according to AllBud, with THC levels between 16 and 20 percent, "some patients may find the easy cerebral high very pleasant."
"It makes everything pop a little louder," writes one Leafly reviewer. "Colours are more vibrant, every thought is an epiphany, and everything has a lot more emotional intensity. Very float-y."
Where to Find Pineapple Jack
Pineapple Jack is available in Los Angeles and Southern California medical dispensaries, but elsewhere may be trickier to find. But for those interested a bedroom-friendly strain, seeking out Pineapple Jack or White Widow might be worth the hassle. Conversely: Sexxpot, a 14 percent THC strain, was developed specifically "to create a sensual, psychological effect without getting the smoker too high to function properly."
