Cannabis: My Aphrodesiac
Dr. Lester Grinspoon, retired Harvard Medical School professor known as the grandfather of modern medicinal cannabis research: “I believe there are three broad categories of usefulness for this remarkably nontoxic drug. Two of them are quite available, namely, recreation and medicine. But there’s a third category, the capacity to enhance a variety of human experiences. There’s one that comes to everybody: the capacity to turn an ordinary dish into an extraordinary culinary experience. And the second is sexual experience.”
After eating a cannabis infused edible or ingesting a small amount of an oil concentrate with a dominant percentage of THC—the chemical in cannabis that has psychoactive effects—anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour or an hour and a half later, I begin to feel floaty, relaxed. My whole body gets tingly. My libido turns on, like a light switch. And it works this way for me every time.
Tactile sensations become intense. Time slows. Love making carries me on waves of increasing pleasure and euphoria. An hour passes, two hours and more pass. Enveloped in a cocoon of intimacy, I feel totally sensually satiated.
