Who doesn’t love sex after a little inebriation? It makes the muscles looser, it relaxes the mind, and it can even make the orgasm feel better. Stoners have been searching since the dawn of time for the best weed strains for sex. While there are many weed strains that can help assist with arousal, it’s going to be a trial-and-error process for you to find the best weed strain for sex for you that produces the particular high you’re after. Trust us though! It will be worth the time spent searching!
This strain is a Sativa-heavy hybrid that only has 10% Indica. That means that if you’re the type of person to get the big-sleep effect from Indica, this strain will be right up your ally and may even be the best weed for sex for you. With that being said, we'd recommend staying away from it if you know a sativa-leaning strain like Trainwreck will leave you distracted and preoccupied with thoughts swirling around in your head. That won't be great for you or your partner!
Trainwreck weed features an earthy and citrusy taste with notes of pine and pepper in each hit. It produces a nice cerebral high and body buzz. The high THC content in the trainwreck strain is also great for pain, so if you struggle with joint pain or endometriosis pain, this strain can help ease this and make sex more possible and pleasurable for you.
This strain is 80% Indica, so you do run the risk of falling asleep if you smoke too much of it. This is one of the best strains of weed for sex that involves a sweeter emotional connection, rather than heavy, BDSM type sex.
When you take a hit, you’ll taste a nice citrus flavour with notes of orange and sour lemon. Bubblegum Kush produces more of a relaxed high that will mellow you out and ease any tension.

Granddaddy Purp is one of the greatest purple weed strains also known for being one of the best types of weed for sex. It’s an Indica cross of Purple Urkle and Big Bud. It produces a dreamy buzz that goes nicely with intimate sexual encounters. This strain is good for relaxing your inhibitions and increasing sensations of pleasure. The grape and berry smell you get from cracking a bud open is mirrored in the taste of each hit.
This Sativa-dominant hybrid is 55% Sativa, making it the perfect balance of Sativa and Indica that won’t make you too sleepy or get your mind racing too quickly. This strain is good for keeping your mind active and creative, which is the perfect pairing for great sex. Jack Herer weed is predominantly floral-scented with some citrus notes.
Atomic Northern Lights
This is an Indica-dominant hybrid, the high from which produces happiness and relaxation over the course of your arousal. The Northern Lights strain is great for relaxing you past your inhibitions, but be careful not to smoke too much. Northern Lights cannabis Indica, like other Indica, can put you to sleep if you’re not careful.

This is an Indica strain that produces a nice relaxed high and helps to squelch your feelings of anxiety. It has a powerful strawberry taste and smell, but, like with all Indica, it can put you to sleep if you smoke too much of it. The strawberry shortcake strain allows you to feel relaxed, calm, and ready for sweet, meaningful sex.
The Dream Queen strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that packs a punch. Each hit will fill you with a euphoric, dream-like sensation. This strain is a cross between the amazing strains Blue Dream and Space Queen. Each hit is full of pineapple and bubblegum scents and flavours of menthol, citrus, and hash. Dream Queen is known for producing a happy, euphoric, relaxing high that promotes creativity and uplifts your mood.
Any strain with “diesel” in the name is likely the best strain of weed for sex. Sour Diesel weed is a great diesel strain that’s a Sativa-dominant strain that’s fast-acting and really potent. This strain produces an energizing, dreamy cerebral high. Its long-lasting effects make it one of the top choices amongst medical smokers.
This Sativa strain produces a creative, focused high thanks to its parent strain, Jack Herer, and its potent, sweet, citrusy aroma comes from its Skunk #1 parent strain. The Candy Jack strain produces a happy and uplifted high, filled with energy and creativity. It’ll help melt away your stress and get you into the mood.
The kryptonite strain is an Indica-dominant strain that’s good for easing pain and anxiety without inducing the deep sleepiness Indica strains are known for. This strain has a tropical fruity smell mixed with a sweet, sugary flavour. It produces a heavily relaxed high that will ease your inhibitions and make you feel more ready for sex.
Bruce Banner weed is a strain extremely high in THC, known for the powerful punch each hit packs. The effects of this strain are fast-acting and strong at first, but then they settle into a nicely creative, euphoric high. Bruce Banner comes from two powerful strains: Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush. Derived from both diesel and kush strains, you can only imagine how strong this high will affect you. It’s also one of the best strains for female arousal available.

The Sunday driver strain provides a calming, mellow high and a nice, clean marijuana taste. This high will have you feeling happy, euphoric, and relaxed with every hit. It'll help you let go of all the nonsense in the world around you and get in the moment for some great, relaxed sex.
The Sour Grape strain is the magical combination of Sour Diesel and Granddaddy Purp; they're both also found on this list, so it makes sense that their baby would have similar arousing effects! This strain produces an energizing, calming, and relaxing high that’s sure to put you in the mood. This hybrid is powerful and potent, so don’t smoke too much or you might not be able to perform sexually due to sleepiness.
Everyone loves a good aphrodisiac and sometimes weed can fill that role. If you find that none of the amazing strains we mentioned above really does it for you or you’re just looking to try something new, you could try one of the following strains as well to see if they have a different or more powerful effect on you:
- Golden strawberry strain
- Pink candy strain
- Three kings strain
- Flo strain
- ATF strain
- Gelato weed
Whatever weed revs up your engine and gets you going, have fun exploring the world of sensual possibilities weed has to offer.
