Hightivities: Sex

Everyone handles their high a bit differently. Some like to veg out on the couch, others like to take advantage of the increased creativity and produce art and still others like to engage in more physical activities. However you choose to ride your high, we want you to get the best experience possible. Selecting the right cannabis strain to pair with your anticipated activity can make a huge difference. Enter Elyon and our new Hightivities segment. Read on for recommondations for activities and what strain(s) to consume to get the most out of them. Smoosh, Netflix and chill, roll in the hay, bang, do the dirty...whatever you like to call it, having sex is better with cannabis. So who’s ready to light up and do the no pants dance?

Oysters, Clams and Cockles

There is a long list of aphrodisiacs that supposedly get you in the mood to get down: oysters, chocolates, figs, even watermelon. And while we’re not telling you to ditch the oysters, we do recommend pairing your half dozen half shells with bubbles and a bong hit. Why? Yes, cannabis gets the libido going (it literally gets your blood flowing), but it also goes beyond that. Even in the most romantic of situations, sex can be painful and a little awkward. That’s where cannabis really thrives in the bedroom (or the hot tub, the car, the bar bathroom…). It helps relieve pain while at the same time, stimulates sensory experience. Touch and tingle. Cannabis can also help alleviate anxiety and stress (just don’t smoke too much). It will help get you out of your head and into your bed.


Just like finding the right partner, you really want to make sure you find the right strain for sex. You need that big D energy. Of course we mean D as in Diesel...Super Sour Diesel. This strain was made for fucking. Ok, not literally made for it, but it is a great precursor to any sexual activity. A cross between Super Silver Haze and Sour Diesel, Super Sour Diesel is a sativa, and a powerful one at that. It's known for its uplifting and euphoric high. It’s energizing but calming at the same time. It can help alleviate chronic pain and anxiety. Like we said, made for making whoopee. Two more things, one fun and one warning. The good news first? It’s also known for putting people in a creative headspace. Yes, please. Not that we don’t love the tried and true missionary, but a little exploratory innovation can be a lot of fun. But now for the unfun thing? Because Super Sour Diesel is so potent, if you smoke too much you can definitely experience more anxiety rather than alleviate it. So just puff, puff and pass the condom.

Let’s Talk About You and Me

Ladies, one more important tip before reaching for that Super Sour D. Grab the lube. It hurts just to type this term, but “cotton vagina” can be a thing. Ouch. So lube on and light up. Whether you have a partner or are getting sexy solo, cannabis will always be your companion.
