About The Sex and Cannabis Study

The Study is a prospective research study conducted by Redington Research on the effects of cannabis on sexual desire, health and dysfunction.

Long believed to hold immense medicinal, aphrodisiacal, and restorative properties, more Canadians than ever are using cannabis as a natural treatment for intimacy concerns, sexual dysphoria and a variety of medical symptoms known to negatively impact sexual desire and performance.

All study participants receive access to a wide selection of distinct strains shown to improve sexual performance and/or provide effective treatment of medical symptoms that cause sexual dysfunction or decreased sexual libido.

Once enrolled in the study and actively using medical cannabis, the progress of each participant is monitored through monthly questionnaires designed by sexologists and cannabis educators to measure individual participant outcomes based on one or more of the following conditions:
