How much should you take
All the health professional agrees that the quantity we need to ingest to have this type of experiences has to be very low. The exact dose may vary from one person to another but 2.5mg or 1mg should be enough ta have this light relaxing effect.
When the quantity ingested is too big, we observe unpleasant opposite effects concerning sexual arousal in men and women.
Occasional users must be more careful. They might unintentionally get over the line faster and end up with paranoia and discomfort.
Being a frequent user will also affect the quantity recommended for a pleasant sexual interaction. On top of that, a study made in 2017 reported that frequent cannabis users are generally also having sex more frequently.
For women other than having a less enjoyable sexual experience when ingesting too much cannabis no other bad side effects have been observed.
For men, unfortunately, some heavier side effects can appear. Having a little bit too much could result in delayed ejaculation.
Moreover, it can affect sperm production. A study made in 2015 showed that Frequent cannabis users (more than once a week) had a reduction in sperm concentration compared to casual users (once a week or less).

Proving once more that moderation has a better taste.
