Marijuana May Improve Women's Sexual Experiences, Study Finds

Women who use marijuana before sex could be twice as likely to have satisfying orgasms compared to those who don't use, according to a recent Sexual Medicine study. 

The findings are based on a survey of 373 women, all patients at one obstetrics and gynecology practice.  One hundred seventy-six of the women said they used marijuana, with 127 using specifically before sex and 49 using at any time. 

Most users, regardless of the time of use, felt that their overall sexual experiences, sex drive, orgasms, and pain improved with marijuana. However, most did not notice changes in vaginal lubrication.
