  3. The idea that whole food could eventually start selling marijuana products could be a bit painful for the entire marijuana industry.

Participants took part in a survey that asked them to rate factors such as sex drive, orgasms, and sex life overall, as well as to check whether participants used cannabis, how often they used it, and whether they used it before sexual activity.

“Most women reported an increase in sex drive, an improvement in orgasm, a decrease in pain, but no change in lubrication,” the authors write.

The information was gathered from anonymous responses from 373 people treated in a single gynecology clinic for a period of one year from March 2016. The majority of the participants were female, heterosexual, and Caucasian. 176 participants said they use cannabis.

The authors found that women who reported using cannabis prior to sexual activity were 2.13 more likely to report satisfactory orgasms than women who reported no cannabis use. “When adjusted for race and age, women who used marijuana frequently, regardless of whether or not before sex, were 2.10 times more likely to report satisfactory orgasms than women with infrequent marijuana use.”

“Among those who reported using marijuana before sex, 68.5 percent said the overall sexual experience was more enjoyable, 60.6 percent said they had an increase in sex drive, and 52.8 percent said they had an increase in satisfactory orgasms on, “says the study.

The reason for the results is still unclear, according to lead author Becky Lynn, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at St. Louis University.

“Marijuana seems to improve orgasm satisfaction. A better understanding of the role of the endocannabinoid system in women is important as there is a lack of literature and it could lead to the development of therapies for sexual dysfunction in women, ”the study concludes.
