Thanks to their cannabinoid and terpene profiles, these two species tend to produce different kinds of high:
The high concentration of myrcene in Indica, is responsible for more stronger body effect, resulting in complete relaxation. If you consume too high of a dose, this can be quite unpractical for making love. This full-body blow is colloquially known as the “couch-lock”, where the user feels comfortably glued to the couch.
Sativa strains have cannabinoids and terpenes (limonene for example) that usually offer a much more energetic and mind-driven high, leaving users with more stamina and a stronger desire to engage in any physical activity.
The one cannabinoid that is closely linked to sex is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which boosts dopamine secretion in the brain, just like sex.
A combination of high-THC strains and sex produces a high amount of dopamine in the body always leaving you hungry for more.
