Episode 45: Sex and Cannabis with Jarani Taja


Ev’Yan brings back her sister and cannabis expert, Jarani, to talk about their individual relationships with weed and sex.

This episode is a continuation of a conversation that they started on episode 36 where she and Jarani both discussed about using cannabis to deal with pain relief and also the amazing effect it has of enhancing sex. They finally get to dive deep on a topic that Ev’Yan’s been dying to talk about and Jarani is excellent at sharing her expertise in.

Their playful sister banter flows throughout this conversation as they share their first times consuming, the good and bad highs they’ve experienced, and how Ev’Yan initially went to Jarani for help to find a strain combination that worked for her. Jarani also gives examples of different strains and their effects, some of her favorite cannabis-infused sexual products, and advice when trying to figure out how much to consume. 

If there were any doubts or hesitation around cannabis use, this episode will help ease them, and even give some recommendations to any advanced cannabis users out there.
