4 Burning Questions About Cannabis You’re Afraid to Ask
Asking a budtender about weed and sex isn’t quite as easy as it is to ask about the differences between sativas and indicas.
That’s why we answered the hard questions about cannabis so that you didn’t have to.
1. Does weed affect sexual performance?
The short answer is probably. However, when it comes to combining cannabis and sex, it really depends on the person. And the sexy strain that they smoke.
Many people have reported that when combined, weed and sex together can help to enhance their orgasms, their stamina, and their sexual connection with their partner(s).
2. What are the risks of driving while high?
The biggest risk that we’re aware of is getting a DUI.
Since legal cannabis is becoming more and more popular within California, cops are looking out for drivers who seem high. Whatever that means to them, we don’t really know.
But we have heard reports by people who have driven high that it makes you want to drive slower and more carefully than usual to over-compensate being under the influence.
However, when it comes to driving while high, we think it’s better to be safe than sorry.
3. If I blow smoke in my dog’s face, will he get high with me?
As much as we’d like to say yes, the answer is probably not. In fact, your dog does not like it at all, so you should probably stop doing it all together.
Dogs can’t process THC as humans can, so our furry friends can experience a whole slew of effects that make them uncomfortable, anxious, and in pain.
Instead of blowing smoke into your poor pup’s face, try pet-specialized purely low-dose CBD products to help with pet anxiety, joint issues, and more.
4. Is the war on drugs racist?
This stems all the way back to when cannabis was first criminalized back in the 1930s in order to demonize the Latinx and Black communities.
Harry Anslinger, the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and person responsible for making cannabis illegal was quoted saying, “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”
Fast forward to early 70s when Nixon’s aide, John Ehrlichman was quoted saying, “We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black. But by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
