Who knew?

Weed has different effects on everyone, but it usually makes people chill and relaxed. Some might even say that the high turns them on!

But new research finds that weed is more likely to ruin your sex life — at least for people with vaginas!

Say what? Has weed been sneakily messing with our vaginas without us noticing? Apparently, yes!

According to Dr. Julie Holland, M.D. in her new book, Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, The Sleep You're Missing, The Sex You're Not Having, and What's Really Making You Crazy, marijuana dries up your vagina.

That's right, ladies. You not only get dry mouth from puffing and passing, but you get dry vagina, too.

"It's the drying of the mucus membranes. Now, not all pot is going to give you dry mouth, but if you have had a strain that is giving you dry mouth, it will also make you more dry [down there]," explains Dr. Julie Holland to Vice

But what is it about the weed that gives this mood-killing side effect? Dr. Holland says it could be that the THC strain is very high. So, if your vagina is acting much older than it is, you should probably switch up your marijuana ... or just invest in a good lubricant.
