Many people have long sworn by cannabis for improving their love life by helping them be more compassionate toward their partner and providing a little courage to try new things. Now there’s scientific evidence that backs up weed’s impact between the sheets.

Researchers found both men and women who used pot on the daily had sex way more often than those who didn’t—like, 20 percent more often.

New analysis examined data from 50,000 Americans between 2002 to 2015 and found a link between smoking marijuana and having sex. Researchers asked how often participants did the dirty in the past four weeks as well as how frequently they smoked in the past year, and results showed that both men and women who lit up on the daily had sex way more often than those who didn’t. Like, 20 percent more often.

But, study author Michael Eisenberg, MD, noted in a press release that just because pot smokers reported having more sex doesn’t mean lighting up a doobie will automatically make you feel extra frisky. The study really just found using the drug doesn’t curb sex drive. But according to past research, a reason why friends of 4:20 might be more sexually active is because those who smoke on the reg are typically a lot more relaxed, and a decrease in anxiety can mean an increase in libido.

With CBD—the compound of marijuana that gives you a mild high without the psychoactive element, or THC—becoming mainstream for its healing properties, it’s a fair prediction that cannabis will stay au courant in general discourse, meaning the additional research needed to detect a real causal connection between ganja and sex might come sooner than later.

The cannabis-infused trend is now coming for your cocktails. And you can have sparkling water laced with cannabis too.
