The 11 Best Cannabis Strains for Sex: 2024 Edition
Cannabis research has turned a corner, Leafly Nation, and has empirically confirmed what we all already knew: cannabis is a powerful aphrodisiac. Every year more and more Americans are combining weed and sex, with better results than ever before. How do we know?
First of all, humanity has been touting the arousing properties of weed for thousands of years, long before cannabis and intimacy were outlawed and socially stigmatized. New studies suggest that most people who bring ganja into the bedroom report more frequent and intense orgasms, as well as an overall increased sensitivity. What's different now is the variety of products – anyone looking for a little fun can choose from flower, vapes, edibles, and lots of juicy topicals. We also have the freedom to share what works and what doesn't the first time. In 2024, there are 24 adult-use cannabis states nationwide and historic levels of decriminalization.
That's why this year, Leafly triangulated data from more than 6,000 strains, 4,000 store menus, hundreds of thousands of user reviews, and first-hand anecdotes from our network of cannabis experts to determine the best strains for sex. Hard work if you can do it. But dry? Never.

Bacio Gelato (Courtesy of Lindsay MaHarry)
“excited is an understatement.”
Bacio Gelato (Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint GSC), grown by the regenerative First Cut Farms, is a wave of pleasure that drowns out any feeling that isn't good. Flatulent, sweet and potent in the best sense, physical euphoria is accompanied by a playful state of mental calm, making this lively and popular strain perfect for a romantic evening at home.
This cross was grown in the deep chocolate soil of Covelo in Mendocino in harmony with nature under the sun, moon and stars. This balance is also reflected in her high, which is hyperpotent without becoming negative. Smoke it with your partner and have the best Valentine's Day ever, whether you're going out or not. — Lindsay MaHarry

I picked up a bag of Peach Crescendo, a sativa-dominant cross of Chem D, I-95, Mandarin Cookies, and Peach Rings grown in a Paradiso Gardens greenhouse for the Dovetail brand, called a friend, and started experimenting. The first whiff smells of peaches with a hint of grapefruit, while a long drag tastes almost like a Snapple Peach tea.
Since the cottonmouth factor is so low, this is a great option for making out…or other things that require some saliva, if you know what I mean.
Great for an “energetic” session, maybe not so much if you are a slow and sluggish lover. As one Leafly user wrote, “Be careful who you smoke this with because that was very arousing.” – Ngaio Bealum

I love Lemon Tree and I really enjoy Watermelon Zkittlez. They are both delicious in their own right and come together in melonade for a tropical, citrus-soaked indulgence that evokes the allure of a brief sunbath on the beach and the freedom that comes with a vacation.
I've always preferred strains that are more brain-oriented, and research shows that arousal and satisfaction are highly dependent on healthy, uninhibited brain function, especially in women. Melonade helps declutter the mind while paying attention to your body's signals – the vote of confidence you need to express what you like and get it. –Amelia Williams
Spice things up with the Jealousy strain – February’s Leafly HighLight
Cereal milk. (Courtesy of Cookies)
“This kind makes me incredibly horny. My girl loves it… like the light hits the tip of your dingaling.”
Called a friend for “bong hits and chill.” We smoked the perennial crowd favorite Cereal Milk(This particular batch was grown by Lowell Herb Co.) and provided relaxation. Coming from a cross of Y Life x Snowman, Cereal Milk is a sweeter, perhaps creamier take on the Cookies phenotype with less sedation – ideal for the old smokey pokey.
This balanced hybrid was helpful when it came time to focus on important tasks and was active enough to find creative ways to accomplish those tasks. I would rate it 420/69. One reviewer said it best: “You need that extra oomph in the bedroom, don't go for the blue pill, go for cereal milk.” – Ngaio Bealum
Discreetly Grateful: “How Stoned Sex Helps Me Deepen My Pleasure”

Candy Rain from Moon Valley Cannabis is a lush and gentle sensory experience. Everything about this flower is top notch, from the crystalline bud structure and exceptional high to a complex terpene profile that is heavily gas based with notes of lilac, pine and damp earth.
Moon Valley Cannabis grows fire strains like this popular London Pound Cake x Gelato cross indoors in “living soil,” meaning large earthen troughs full of mycelium, beneficial insects, and companion plants. They also use Korean natural farming techniques, such as internal fermentation of all ingredients.
With its calming and physically stimulating high, Candy Rain is the perfect choice for a sexy evening like Valentine's Day. Roll up. A sumptuous evening awaits you. — Lindsay MaHarry
Mint chocolate chip
If you're looking for a delicious dessert variety, Mint Chocolate Chip from Sweetgrass Organics is just as irresistible as raw cookie dough. The velvety appeal of these sugar-dusted buds is undeniable when grown in organic, living soil. But don't let this sweet type of batter fool you.
It leaves a surprisingly flirty kiss of cool mint lingering on your lips after every satisfying puff. A sensual combination of mint and chocolate, a cross between Mystery Cookies and Green Ribbon BX from Exotic Genetix. Offering a full-bodied experience and an uplifting high, Mint Chocolate Chip is perfect for any after-dinner affair. –Amanda Breeze

Love Affair, the cross between Alien Rock Candy and GG4, eschews floral love notes and opts for heartbreaking, animalic scents. The crew at Pacific Grove has coaxed plenty of nuance out of this pure clone offering from Western Solventless Technology. Bad breath and body odor compete with diesel fuel and black peppercorns in a nose-wrinkling and eyebrow-raising bouquet.
The scent fits the effect perfectly, less suitable for rose petals on the bed and more aimed at the middle of a crowded dance floor at the after-after party. Rich in caryophyllene, this arousing strain offers relaxation without veering into sedative territory. –Ryan Herron
Alien Labs Biskant. (David Downs/Leafly)
Your sweet tooth will thank you for rolling up Biskant – you and your significant other will be drooling all over yourself in the heat.
Made from Melonade x Biscotti #6, Biskante offers the sugary diesel flavor of Biscotti paired with the bright lemon of Melonade thanks to its dominant terpenes limonene and beta-caryophyllene. Biskante takes those pleasant dessert flavors and cranks them up to 11 to coat the mouth with sugary sweetness. Tested at 32.65% THC and 0.07% CBD, this batch is a stunning strain to gift to your stunning partner. – Lindsey Bartlett
Apples and bananas
It may not be the naughtiest name compared to other exotic fruits, but when it comes to temptation, apple is the original sin – and we all know what a banana looks like. An indica hybrid from Castle Rock Farms, Apples and Bananas is a genetic fruit cup of [(Platinum Cookies x GDP) x Blue Power] x Gelatti.
These dense buds have deep purple undertones with a sweet but not overpowering aroma with subtle notes of honey banana. It has a playful flavor profile that slowly matures into a satisfying sour apple flavor for a sinful evening. –Amanda Breeze
I got my vagina stoned for Valentine's Day
Don't Yikes Us: Cookies' Cheetah Piss (David Downs / Leafly)
Personally, I'm not a fan of watersports, but I've always had a fondness for strains with a hint of raunchiness and the possibilities they offer. Cheetah Piss, a collaboration between Cookies and Growing Passion that combines lemonnade, gelato, and London pound cake in cannabis choots, feels as funky as it smells, and it smells pretty bad.
If you don't want pure Cookies or Haze, but like the effects (euphoria, tingling, mental irritability) of both – voila! From the first ammoniacal hit, Cheetah Piss envelops your senses in, well, sensuality; Mentally I am calm but alert, and all my nerve endings are at attention.
The orgasm gap between men and women is very real, but piss never fails to live up to the situation. –Amelia Williams
“an ice-cold aphrodisiac for men and women”
(Courtesy of Fig Farms)
Donut underestimates the potency of this strain. Donut Shop is unlike anything you've ever seen. Donut Shop was bred by Fig Farms and selected from the 2023 Phenohunt, with a genetic lineage of Holy Moly! x Gelato 41. You can taste the love that Oakland native Fig puts into his craft. The taste is as decadent and creamy as a heart-shaped Krispy Kreme.
Its lime green and white, trichome-filled peaks and valleys offer a refreshing flavor profile to the California market. The dry hit is a real treat and is reminiscent of powdered sugar donuts mixed with something funky and floral.
America's Best THC Lubricants for V-Day and Slay
Donut Shop's effects are exciting as they sneak up on you. The high takes its time and develops pleasantly and gently, perfect for the most sensual vacation. When smoking this strain, euphoria, creativity, relaxation and a strong analgesic effect occurred. – Lindsey Bartlett
