K1 helps to enhance a surprising part of our lives.
Ahhh, the “sex talk.” At a very young age, we knew there’d be a day when our parents would sit us down for the birds and the bees talk. I got off easy on this front. Mine went something like this. Mom: “So, you had the sex class in school today?” Me: “Yep.” Mom: “Uh, do you have any questions?” Me: “Nope.” Mom: “Okie dokie!”
And today, there’s the sex talk I never expected to have—the sex talk with my budtender. I was in Denver for a weekend get-away with my new boyfriend and wanted to smoke cannabis and get horizontal. My Uber suggested 3D Cannabis Center and said he could take me straight there before dropping me off at the Airbnb where I was meeting my boyfriend. (He was honest enough to admit that he received a finder’s fee for every person he drove to 3D. Brilliant marketing!)
When I walked into 3D, a store employee instantly greeted me with a welcoming hello and said, “Do you want to see the pot garden?”
I followed their yellow brick road to the back pot garden and met my very first “official” budtender, John.
“So, I really don’t want to get high per se. You know? I don’t want to be dipping mozzarella sticks into Cool Whip or anything,” I explained. “I just want to chill out a bit…and… well…have some playful, fun sex with my guy?”
Then I froze. Time seemed to pull away for minutes before he finally spoke.
“Do you need something to get you in the mood?”
“Oh, God no. Don’t give me anything that would make me any hornier than I already am. Just something that would go with great sex and a Pink Floyd soundtrack. Something trippy, sensual, and chill,” I clarified.
“Okay, try this. It’s called K1,” he said.
“So, do you pair music and sex and pot together often?” I asked.
“All the time,” laughed John.
This sex talk was so much more enjoyable—and fruitful—than the one with mom.
On John’s recommendation, I went with the K1.
Back home with my now ex-boyfriend—let’s call him Luke—I took one hit and embarked on my first “sex on sativa” sexcapade. We were already completely obsessed with each other and had this hard-to-find chemical reaction whenever we were together. The sex was always epic, so we didn’t need anything to enhance it. But, K1 introduced me to a different kind of sex. I’m not usually one for slow, sweet lovemaking were you gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes. I typically like to be thrown on the bed in a more S&M-manner, and try lots of crazy different positions with several costume changes to the sounds of Muse, AC/DC, or the Arctic Monkeys. I like crazy sex. Some might even say OCD sex because I don’t like to stay in one position too long.
But, the K1 turned me into a “pillow queen,” as they say in porn. A “pillow queen” isn’t typically a compliment—it’s when a woman takes it more than she gives it and just dreamily lays comfortably on the pillow as the man makes love to her. I’ve never been that girl. Before you think it’s boring, Luke was not complaining. He liked it slow. He liked being on top. He liked being present for every move, feeling every inch of me, and savoring every second of the sex. He liked staying in one position for longer than I ever did. I never realized I would like it this way too until K1 put me into this dreamy, almost ecstasy-like state, making it hands’ down the best sex of my life. This sativa made me very present in the moment and very focused on the one or two positions we were in instead of always needing to switch it up a bit.
We found ourselves under the covers tripping out to Pink Floyd’s The Wall, Morcheeba’s Big Calm, and Portishead’s Dummy having sex like teenagers for the first time. “Let’s pretend we’re in a fort,” I said, holding the sheet up over us like a tent so that our parents didn’t catch us. I started calling him by his high school nickname to add to the fantasy of being in this innocent, first-time place that you can never get back. When I made too much noise, he would shush me so our “parent’s wouldn’t hear us” and we’d giggle like school kids under the covers.
It was probably the most intense orgasms I ever had, thanks largely to really being in the moment and feeling more connected and intimate in a different way than the wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am style I’ve favored. When I woke up from my sex hangover the next day, I gave my budtender John a call to thank him for some of the best sex ever. I could feel him smiling on the other end of the phone.
Job well done, John.
