Sitting down thinking about my good old weed-smoking days, goofy thoughts fill my head, one of which is:
“Does Weed Make You Last Longer in Bed?” Interesting right?
Weed and in particular the properties found in CBD could help you last longer in bed because it has been proven in some users to calm nerves, and reduce stress and anxiety which can all cause premature ejaculation
Studies on the use of weed medically vary, there are really no concrete pieces of evidence as to what is really what. But we will be looking at the following.
Effects of Weed on the Body
Like the above response to if weed makes men last longer, it varies from person to person. Personally, I have seen friends who after smoking weed passed out, some become overly aggressive and bold, while others calm.
I fall into the latter category, weed back then always made me chill, calm and thoughtful. Medically also, giant studies have emerged.
Lots of states in America have legalized the use of weed for medical use in conditions like
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Epilepsy and seizures
- Hepatitis C
- Wasting diseases like Cachetia, anorexia
- Multiple sclerosis
Note: The food and drug board has not approved marijuana for any medical condition. However, there are some synthetic THC medications that are approved for limited medical conditions
The reasons why some would consider weed as helpful in bed is because
- Marijuana has been clinically proven to help reduce the damage caused by high cholesterol, which is a high-risk factor for Erectile Dysfunction
- Marijuana has a big reputation for giving people euphoric feelings like elevated mood, increased sexual desire, and arousal
Side Effects of Marijuana
Due to the fact that weed works differently in people, it has been found that marijuana can actually cause ED, How so?
Studies have shown that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in the brain gives a feeling of high which interferes with the body’s normal function to:
Negatively impact the normal function of the penis smooth muscle
So instead of weed allowing blood flow to the penis, it may actually stop it. Also, shockingly! Daily use of Marijuana in men can lead to difficulties in achieving orgasms.
The ultimate pleasure of sex for both men and women is in orgasms. For men, weed can actually rob you of that benefit.
Note: For men, Ejaculation and Orgasm are not the same thing, you can have an orgasm without actually ejaculating
Ejaculation is simply the process of releasing sperm into the woman to fertilize her eggs for conception
Orgasm is the pleasure you experience at the height of sexual performance
With practice and discipline, you can actually get to the point where you can have an orgasm without releasing any sperm
Surprisingly also, weed can cause hormonal imbalance in men which could lead to Gynecomastia, a condition that causes breast enlargement in men.
Hormonal imbalance could also cause poor sexual performance
Marijuana actually increases estrogen levels which cause impotence and penile atrophy
Narcotics and pain medicines decrease luteinizing hormone, which can lead to low testosterone levels
Smoking Tobacco vs Weed: Does it have the same effect?
There is a negative link between smoking tobacco and not being able to achieve an erection let alone hold it for longer periods
This is so because smoking tobacco restricts blood flow to your arteries and veins. Anything that disturbs the heart pumping blood will disrupt the flow of blood to the pelvic region.
So if you smoke tobacco, your chances of lasting longer in bed are pretty slim
That’s not the case with smoking weed, new research shows that there’s a positive link between the use of medical marijuana and impotence
Many medical marijuana doctors are beginning to notice the healing effects a little puff of weed can have on
- Chronic conditions
- Pain management and
The healing effects of these conditions are rubbing off positively on sexual performance. When you feel no anxiety and stress, you are able to perform much better in bed.
Recommended Dose for Weed Medically
To get the benefit of weed medically to treat sexual disorders like Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation without any side effects, you should
- Consume cannabis in small amounts
- Consume marijuana occasionally, frequent or daily use can lead to other issues like hormonal imbalance thereby causing lack of orgasm and man boobs
Tip: Consume no more than one stick of cannabis weekly, biweekly until the problem is corrected. Once corrected stop use immediately.
You may be wondering how possible it is to take just one stick of weed weekly or bi-weekly.
- Just take a few hits or smoke (2-3 puffs)
- Put it off and keep it for the next day or so
Different Methods of Use
Funny thing is that back then, I only thought you could smoke weed. There are actually at least 3-4 methods of marijuana administration:
- Smoking (the most common form)
- Vaporizing (inhaling heated oil of the weed through a vaporizing device)
- Edibles (eat raw or cook with it)
- Tinctures (soak weed in alcohol or vinegar)
- Topical (infused in lotions, patches, balm, and creams)
Better Alternative to Weed for Sexual Performance
Using weed for sexual performance is really dicey, it is best you use any or a combination of these 3 herbs
- Damiana leaf
- Oat straw
- Chinese skullcap
Also known as Turnera Diffusa and used as herbal medicine in South America, Damiana Leaf is a powerful healing herb that can heal you
Like weed, Damiana leaf when smoked gives users benefits like:
- Stimulates libido
- Increase and improves blood circulation
- Boosts energy
Smoking Damiana Leaf is fast becoming a tobacco and weed substitute because it has positive effects on the body as discovered in Mexico
In ancient cultures, Mayans discovered that Damiana was effective in treating
Furthermore, it was noted that Damiana Leaf also increased blood flow which boosts sexual stimulation in both men and women.
Which is the best alternative out of the 3?
Of the 3 alternatives to weed listed here, Damiana leaf is the best because
Marijuana contains high levels of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid that gives the “high effect” while Damiana leaf does not contain cannabinoid:
But it provides a stimulating relaxing and euphoric effect that may give you the same high effect as cannabis
Marijuana’s effect on the body is usually always immediate in the short run but would have damaging effects in the long run
Whereas the effects of damiana are not always felt immediately in the short run, but as your body adjusts to its properties;
The long-term benefits are usually tremendous and long-lived
Note: If you are suffering from nicotine addiction, Damiana leaf can be of great help;
It contains no nicotine which is the primary chemical that keeps users addicted to cigarettes
Switching to smoking damiana can help you get rid of your cigarette addiction permanently
Damiana Leaf is a cheaper alternative as well:
You can get a 100g bag of dried damiana leaf for as low as $17.95 for 3 ounces (88.72 ml)
With a smoking pipe as low as $8.99 to go with it
Another popular herb in the herbal medicine space used in treating issues like
- Low libido and sex drive
Oat straw is considered an alternative to weed here because it has been proven to
- Improve mood and dopamine levels
- Eliminate depression
- Improve cerebral blood flow and
- Support a relaxed state of mind
Oat Straw is not a strong alternative to weed compared to Damiana Leaf:
But it is still a stronger contender, especially when you combine it with Damiana leaf to drink as tea.

Oat straw has also been listed as a happy herb along with other prized herbs like licorice, hyssop, summer savoy, and fennel

Finally, the third alternative to weed on the list, Chinese Skullcap is native to China and some parts of Russia
It is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for remedies such as
- Lung infections
- Hair loss
- High blood pressure
It is also thought to relieve anxiety which is our focus here, most men suffer from Premature Ejaculation as a result of performance anxiety
I do suffer from insomnia from time to time, but the first time I took Chinese Skullcap, Holy cow! I slept like a log of wood.
It was amazing, I literally experienced my hyperactive mind calm down till I fell asleep and:
I didn’t wake up middle of the night like I normally use to.
So if you suffer from performance anxiety Premature Ejaculation, a Chinese Skullcap is great, if you combine it with oat straw, even better
The Best Alternative Supplement to Weed
Supplements do make our lives easier, it allows for consistency, mixing herbs can become tiring, clumsy, and inconsistent
But not all supplements are created equal, plus there are lots of low-quality and dangerous pills out there. FDA put out a list of sex pills to avoid.
These so-called natural or herbal supplements actually contained the Viagra ingredient Sildenafil, why would these manufacturers do this?
Use less of the real herbs, and add synthetic ingredients like sildenafil which is cheaply sourced:
You get hooked because of how effective the supplements work not knowing it’s been mixed with a substance that will screw up your life later
Anyways, a recommended supplement will be Vigrx Plus, it has been in existence for over 12 years, sold over 1.2 million boxes
It is the only male enhancement supplement that has gone through real clinical trials done on men
Vigrx Plus is great because it contains Damiana Leaf plus other powerful sex-enhancing herbs like
- Saw Palmetto
- Muira Puama
- Catuaba Bark Extract
You are guaranteed to last longer in bed with this formula
Again it is highly praised and endorsed by the medical community, you can check it out
