People who use cannabis are well aware of the delicious effects that the plant has in the bedroom.
In the January 2016 issue of HIGH TIMES, we explore cannabis sexuality in “The Stoner Orgasm,” our cover feature. Contributor Sophie St. Thomas lays out a first-person narrative of how pot saved her sex life in “The Stoner Orgasm.”
But she also relies on top experts to confirm what all of us already know – sex on pot is fantastic!
Whether you suffer from PTSD, shyness, social anxiety, premature ejaculation or simply want to be more “in the moment,” cannabis has the capacity to both improve and enhance the sexual experience.
Adding to our obsession with sex in this issue, no-holds-barred columnist Dan Savage weighs in on how being high heightens sexual pleasure, while editor-at-large Nico Escondido takes matters a bit further, regaling us with “Sex in the Growroom,” an inside look at pot plants doin’ the wild thing.
We also cover Om, the all-women’s collective that grows great pot and turns out delicious edibles in its California kitchen. Plus, we visit the infamous “Tent City” prison in Arizona, courtesy of contributor Brian Penny.
The world of cannabis overflows with tales of our personal experience.
Some are of hope, enlightenment and even ecstasy; others tell of the terrible persecution that still afflicts our community.
It’s all in the January 2016 issue of HIGH TIMES. On sale now!

TOP HOT POT SHOT OF THE WEEK
Over a half-century ago, the Lone Ranger was the top cowboy on TV. He always wore a mask.
Like Batman, he believed that his mask was more effective in fighting crime.
But the trimmer in our Top Hot Pot Shot of the Week is no crime fighter. And he’s no criminal either!
He’s just got allergies to the thick Northern California bud pollen wafting through the air as he trims.
We love this shot as a portrait of intense concentration. Trimming buds is an art! If a trimmer leaves a whole lot of lumber or destroys the nugs, the grower loses out – and the trimmer loses his job!
Congrats to this pot-ographer for shooting a tableau of the cannabis industry in progress.
He’ll receive a whole bunch of cool junk for his artistry. Got a similar cool shot? Send it our way!
We award prizes every week. Why not you?
Send us your winning entry today!
