A recent survey commissioned by MariMed’s Betty’s Eddies brand and conducted by The Harris Poll suggests that cannabis consumers have more sex, finding half of consumers said they have sex several times a week or more, compared to only 35% of non-cannabis consumers.
The survey found 65% of sexually active cannabis consumers agree that cannabis enhances their sex life, with 67% saying that it helps get them in the mood for sex. More than half (51%) of cannabis consuming respondents believe that cannabis is a natural aphrodisiac, which 30% believe it is the most effective natural aphrodisiac – more than chocolate (16%) or oysters (12%). Another 52% of sexually active respondents indicated they prefer edibles or smoking cannabis to get in the mood for sex.
MariMed Chief Operating Officer Tim Shaw said that the survey validates the company’s product development strategy and ingredient selection, “that yes, cannabis users want and have more sex than non-users.”
“As more consumers continue to seek tailored-use products, MariMed is on a mission to offer a house of brands with high-quality products to meet those demands. It’s innovative products like Smashin’ Passion, which combines real passion fruit and all-natural aphrodisiacs like horny goat weed and cannabis, that take people from where they are to where they want to be.” – Shaw in a press release
The survey was conducted online within the U.S. by The Harris Poll on behalf of MariMed from January 27-31, 2022, and included 1,967 adults ages 21-and-older of whom 763 consume cannabis, defined by the survey as THC-rich cannabis products.
The survey also found that cannabis was popular among those with Valentine’s Day plans, with 72% of respondents indicating plans to incorporate cannabis as part of their plans, 53% planning to consume edibles, 63% saying they would rather receive cannabis than flowers or chocolate, and 46% saying they would like to receive cannabis as a Valentine’s Day gift.
