Cannabis and Porn Are a Match Made in Heaven

Cannabis and pornography are two industries that have been labeled “taboo” for decades. With changing cannabis laws sweeping the nation, it has become more acceptable to talk about, promote and openly consume cannabis in film and on the internet. A new cannabis-friendly sector has appeared in the adult film industry, but cannabis certainly hasn’t always been a part of the porn industry. Mentioning both industries in the same sentence may have resulted in the stink eye and are even considered rebellious, but now the negative views are being lifted. Cannabis is fully being integrated into the pornography industry with sexy smoking videos, pornstar/cannabis drawing classes and by allowing some of the industry’s actors to openly promote the use of the plant. Film stars are using their knowledge to start companies and become relatable to fans on their social media accounts.

Directors are taking advantage of this integration by tapping into a whole new sector of adult entertainment videos. Porn video websites like PornHub, Emerald Triangle Girls and YouPorn feature videos where cannabis is interlaced with sex. A pouty girl smoking a joint while being seduced is a popular turn-on for some people. In addition, video stars are emerging with names like Daisy Dabs and Bud Sticky. Phrases like “smoking weed” and “weed sex” are reportedly among the most commonly searched words on PornHub’s website. Research shows that cannabis-friendly porn is more heavily searched in states that have legal cannabis versus states where it’s only medical or not even decriminalized. PornHub also reports that cannabis-related searches on their site surge on days like 4/20. Got any cannabis fetishes to enjoy on a national cannabis smoking holiday, anyone?

XBlaze Productions is another site that is shifting to a hard focus on cannabis. They revealed last year that they are on a mission to educate and entertain adults with cannabis-related content. XBlaze will support the argument that CBD is safe and a viable alternative to pharmaceuticals by integrating the content into the storyline of their online videos.

And let’s not forget that cannabis has been considered an aphrodisiac, which could allow actors to relax and enjoy themselves more on screen. Cannabis-infused lubricants, such as Foria Pleasure are advertised to increase sexual pleasure and comfort and are being used in self-indulgent videos on porn sites.

Enter cannabis-related events featuring some of the porn industry’s most prominent stars. “Puff, Pass and Pornstar: A Cannabis Friendly Nude Figure Drawing Class” was held in Los Angeles this last November. Put on by Puff, Pass and Paint Art Director and adult film star Lotus Lain, patrons were invited to bring their own cannabis to consume and create charcoal nude masterpieces of the industry’s stars, Aaliyah Love and Ana Foxx. Ten percent of the proceeds went to Free Speech Coalition, the adult industry’s trade association.

Cannabis is giving a voice and identity to many people in the adult film industry, especially with recent cannabis reform. Activist and extremely well-known trans porn star, Buck Angel, started a cannabis company called Pride Wellness, which sponsored a burlesque show titled “Marijuana Madness” where he created and served CBD-infused mocktails to celebrate the legalization of cannabis in California last year. He is using his fame, knowledge and love cannabis to promote the positive effects that cannabis can have for HIV/AIDS patients and LGBTQ members experience transitioning-related health conditions. In the 1990s, Angel saw firsthand how gay men in the industry suffered from the effects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic were using cannabis as medicine and knows from those experiences that cannabis is not a drug but medicine.

Adult entertainment stars are using cannabis on their social media accounts or in personal webcasts to relate to fans and to promote their brand. Famous adult film star, Madison Ivy, was involved in a near-death car accident years ago and now uses cannabis as medicine, openly promoting it on her Twitter page saying, “I’d rather breathe cannabis” and touts dabs in her bio.

Although cannabis use is still not permitted on set due to directors’ orders, prohibition of cannabis in the adult entertainment industry is slowly ending. As legalization, decriminalization and medical use of cannabis sweeps the nation, more celebrities of all fields are coming forward to say they use it for one reason or another. By doing so, actors have more of a voice and personality aside from just a “porn star,” giving them confidence, individuality and a way to express their love for the cannabis plant. And with that, who knows where these billion-dollar industries may end up together in the future.
