The objective of the research was to measure the effects of cannabis on the sexual functioning of women.
In the survey that the patients filled between May 2016 and February 2017, issues to subjects related to libido, satisfaction and orgasm were studied. In this way, patients filled out a form at each visit and subsequently, it was delivered anonymously in a closed box.
Of the 373 participants, 34% (N: 127) reported using cannabis before sexual activity. Most of them reported greater satisfaction in the orgasms, decrease in pain and no change in lubrication.
“After adjusting the social group and age, women who have frequent use of cannabis, regardless of the use of sex before or not, were twice as likely (2.10) to report more satisfactory orgasms than those who do not have a use. frequent, “says the study.
Dr. Becky Lynn, one of the authors of the study, revealed that her interest in this research began because her own patients told stories after using cannabis for other types of ailments.
“I have seen that women use it to control the chronic pain that leads to painful sexual relationships, women who experience difficulties to have orgasms, inability to have them and women who use it to improve their libido that sometimes does not fit with that of their partners “Said Lynn professor of gynecology at Saint Louis University in Missouri.
The authors state that this is a tool to understand the functioning of the endocannabinoid system in women.
“Understanding this system is important because there is a shortage of literature and this type of study could help develop treatments for female sexual dysfunction.”
