8 best weed strains for sex: 2023 edition

Published

on


Leafly Nation, the reviews are in: You all are getting freaky on the ganja. 

Tens of millions of Americans are pairing weed and sex this year with better results than ever. How do we know?

For starters, humanity has touted weed’s arousing qualities for thousands of years. What’s different now is product diversity—there’s flowers, vapes, edibles, and juicy topicals. Plus, we have the freedom to share what works and doesn’t for the first time. In 2023 we have 21 adult-use cannabis states nationwide, 40 medical ones, and historic levels of decriminalization. 

This year, Leafly used data from more than 6,000 strains, 4,000 store menus, and hundreds of thousands of reviews to compute the best strains for sex. This isn’t some dry, clinical job either. We double-check our findings with expert interviews and years of field trials. Tough work, if you can get it.

The following 8 strains appear highly statistically likely to rev your engine, though your mileage may vary. Terms and restrictions may apply. Void where prohibited.

Accelerate that spark of attraction into the twin flames of passion with this hype cross of Jet Fuel x Gelato.

Our research indicates America is eating up Jet Fuel Gelato and leaving no crumbs. Leafly reviewers report arousal as its number one effect, and the cultivar sells in over 1,500 stores in the US. Bred by Compound Genetics from Jet Fuel x Gelato, it’s got a classic pedigree in Gelato, with that extra oomph of Jet Fuel to make it more energetic. Jet Fuel Gelato’s perfect mix of creamy, berry, dessert, and fuel relaxes and heightens the senses. The reviews speak for themselves:

  • “Sex is GREAT on this strain.”
  • “The strain should be renamed, ‘Sex Fuel Let’s Go!’”
  • “My boyfriend’s kisses and touch felt heightened.”
  • “Feel super relaxed and horny.”

And those are the tame reviews.

Lauren Avenius, CEO at Node Labs/Compound Genetics said audience tests match Leafly’s reviews.

“We just had a session with our R+D lab on the effects reported and we see that a lot of our JFG crosses show this reported effect.”

Look for JFG’s arousing qualities in crosses: Grape Gas, Jokerz, and La Bomba. Boom goes the dynamite.

LA Kush Cake returns for year two on our V-Day sex strains list. We just can’t put it down. This strain dominates over 2,500 American dispensary menus, and after nearly 150 Leafly reviews, arousal remains its main effect. The parent, Wedding Cake, passed down its aphrodisiac tendencies to this vanilla, minty cross with Kush Mints. High-THC hybrids can push back the gloom of depression, and diffuse anxiety, consumers report. Fixing mood issues can allow latent desire to surface. “It’s a great combination of relaxation, euphoria, happiness… And maybe the perfect amount of horniness LOL!!!”

Cereal Milk

Participate in the exotic pot conversation, and see where the mood takes you with Cereal Milk—the potent cross of Snowman and The Y. These are essentially GSC genetics, but breeder Powerzzup selected for the fruity, creamy, sweet, cereal facet of the dessert strain. It’s also more energetic than LA Kush Cake. Cannabis is a vasodilator—meaning it opens up blood vessels. That’s why your eyes turn red. Vasodilation of other body parts is a key component of arousal as well. “This strain will make you horny!” said one reviewer.

Banana Runtz

Fresh on the love list this year—meet Banana Runtz, a cross of Banana OG x Runtz. The flower has just made it to over 1,000 store menus, and yup, arousal ranks as its main effect; ahead of tingly, and uplifted. Cookies, Gelato, Runtz, and Cake strains in general seem to align with eros in America. We’re still figuring out the science, but dessert strains are the most popular family in cannabis, and sex ranks as a favorite activity when stoned. So it all tracks. See also: Forbidden Runtz.

Cream

Here we go again, Wedding Cake x Gelato #33 equals Cream—on over 1,500 North American menus with arousal as its second effect. Other sources report Cream is made of Cookies and Cream x an unknown strain. Either way—THC has a sensitizing effect on the nervous system, says Leafly Science Director Nick Jikomes, Ph.D. So textures, sounds, and sights feel more vivid. No wonder folks pair high-THC strains with romance. One Cream reviewer said: “You feel good all over and super chill.”

Pink Rozay

Weed has a powerful placebo effect and one good way to set the mood is with a sexy name like Pink Rozay. Pink Rozay flashes arousal signals in 53 Leafly reviews, and it’s on 700 menus nationwide. Reports show Pink Rozay combines Lemonchello with London Pound Cake. The hybrid unites arousing genetics from Cherry Pie and Sunset Sherbert. Pink Rozay tastes rosy, berry, and floral—almost begging for a bubble bath. “You feel immediately happy and smiling non-stop, the body feels relaxed in a good way, helps a lot with PMS and any pain related to the menstrual cycle,” said one reviewer. Let’s raise a bong to Rozay—all day. 

Cheetah Piss

Don’t yuck our yum: Cookies’ Cheetah Piss (David Downs / Leafly)

Cheetah Piss returns for year two on our strains that bang for Valentine’s Day 2023 and beyond. Don’t yuck our yum—Cheetah Piss mixes Lemonnade x Gelato #42 x London Poundcake #97 for an energizing hybrid effect that’s arousing, giggly, and uplifting. Roughly one-fifth of reviewers use it to manage anxiety, depression, and stress—allowing intimacy to blossom. Reviewers flag its ammonia and menthol pungence. But if you can slurp a salty oyster or savor a funky brie, you’re ready for this exotic weed safari.

Coming to a hype menu near you, we recommend some Red Velvet. This mix of Lemon Cherry Gelato and Pina Acai has our readers smelling roses and lavender and feeling energetic and sexy. Our bag smelled like cinnamon red hot heart candy and others have got that aroma, too. Over 600 stores and climbing sell the Cookies brand cultivar. “Strongly recommended for date night,” said one reviewer.

Pure Michigan

Oreoz x Mendo Breath combine in Fresh Coast Genetics’ Pure Michigan—the follow-up to their smash hit Oreoz. Arousal scores second in this extremely relaxing regional strain. Mixing Oreoz’ sweet, vanilla dessert with Mendo Breath’s savory rankness ensures things get weird. Reviewers smell nuttiness, lime, menthol, vanilla, funk—you name it. But the effect scores are accurate. “Anything that turns on my love button and makes me feel relaxed and content, I’m all for it. I definitely recommend this strain.”

Magic Melon adds lovers this year, thanks to its tropical melon smell and sativa hybrid effect. Bred and sold by Humboldt Seed Co, it’s a cross of Mango Trees, Honeydew Melon, and Mango Sherbert. Does Magic Melon truly elongate orgasm—or just the perception of time itself? Experiment and report back.


And we’re spent for V-Day sex strains this year. Leave us a nice comment if any of the flowers hit the spot.

OZ Kush—Wonderbrett, CA, winter 2024

Published

on

By


98 points out of 100

Price: $60/eighth

People always ask us what’s our favorite type of weed. I’ll come clean here: We love crosses of OG Kush to Z. The OG improves Z’s density and potency, while the Z adds more layers of tropical fruit flavor to OG’s lemony, piney fuel. And I don’t know that anyone grows OZ Kush better for the rec market in 2024 than Brett ‘Wonderbrett‘ Feldman in LA.

Wonderbrett was an early believer in Dying Breed SeedsOZ Kush. He bought and popped a bunch of packs, and found a keeper. His massive indoor facility has OZ Kush dialed. The nugs are ample, green, dense, a little spongy, and sandy with trichomes. The OZ Kush smell explodes from the jar, and gets even louder in a grinder, or in a dry hit from a joint. It carries over to the taste, with a hybrid effect that works morning, noon and night. It’s hard to improve from here. The only thing to work on is more bling.

Cap Junky x Permanent Marker—Seven Leaves, CA, winter 2024

Published

on

By


99 points out of 100

Price: $55/eighth

Ready to stay winning? Leafly Strain of the Year 2023 Permanent Marker combines with a SOTY runner-up, Cap Junky, in this stellar flower grown by Sacramento’s Seven Leaves.

It’s nearly impossible to improve on either strain, but Seven Leaves does just that. It’s Permanent Marker with more fuel. Or it’s more appetizing Cap Junky with a little purple. Either way, the smell hits a 10 on the “marker fumes meets gasoline” scale, and that perfection carries through to the taste. The high doesn’t get any higher, and the view from the top doesn’t get any nicer, with the Permanent Marker dialing back Cap Junky’s ripping G-forces a bit. Honestly, I don’t know what more you could want from a cannabis flower.

Sticky Genes #23—Wood Wide Farms, CA, winter 2024

Published

By


95 points out of 100

Price: $55/eighth

Batch size: 10 lbs

Wood Wide Farms in Mendocino, CA grows small, 10-pound batches of the best from America’s cannabis heartland for the adult-use market in the Bay Area and beyond. This winter, they’ve turned out a superb run of a strain just called “#23.” It’s bred by a 3rd-generation Mendocino County, CA grower 707caseyberns, co-founder of Sticky Genes—a cross of (Lava Cake x Dosidos) x Pluto.

Wood Wide’s run of #23 gives me a lot of Marshmallow OG vibes, and I love it. The OG and dessert parentage really shows here. It’s green bud—dense, resinous, glistening and angular—evoking a Chem or a Sour. The nose is maximum marshmallow sweet jet fuel, and it’s very sticky and pungent in a grinder. The taste carries through, and the pronounced and long effects made it a favorite from mid-day into night.

Up close and personal with #23. (David Downs / Leafly)
