Researchers in the US have found cannabis before sex can improve sexual encounters, especially for women.
In a world of Viagra, weed before sex increased the chance women would have an orgasm. Good news for some.
Four hundred people took part in Saint Louis University’s study.
The Missouri researchers said in the Sexual Medicine journal that when people had marijuana before sex 68.5 per cent found their sexual experience more pleasurable, 60.6 per cent had an increased sex drive, and 52.8 per cent felt better satisfaction from orgasms.
Yup, it’s Netflix’n’chill.
In more serious Weed Week news, Stemcell United (ASX:SCU) added 62 per cent yesterday, taking its share price up to 2.1c.
The company was temporarily suspended from trading after the sudden and unexpected rally, but returned after telling the ASX it was nothing untoward.
Earlier this week Stemcell’s market capitalisation sat at $8.7m. It’s now up $4.8m to $13.5m.
