Our guests for this podcast episode : Suzanne Mulvehill, MBA, BSW, Board Certified Clinical Sexologist, Female Orgasmic Disorder Specialist, PhD Candidate, International Institute of Clinical Sexology, Miami, FL, USA

Jordan Tishler MD, President CEO inhaleMD, President Association of Cannabinoid Specialists, Instructor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

Can therapeutic cannabis help women who have difficulty orgasming or who never orgasmed? Anecdotal research and Suzanne’s personal experience says, “Yes!”

Join Suzanne Mulvehill, Clinical Sexologist, Female Orgasmic Disorder Specialist and Director of The Orgasm Project, and Dr. Jordan Tishler, Harvard Doctor and President of the Association of Cannabinoid Specialists and COO of inhaleMD, Inc., for a personal, educational and inspiring discussion on therapeutic cannabis for female orgasmic disorder.

Suzanne Mulvehill shares her personal journey of having seen 4 sex therapists over a 30-year period to address her orgasmic disorder and, to her surprise, discovering cannabis as the healing therapeutic treatment for her orgasmic disorder.

The podcast discusses scientific differences between men’s and women’s orgasm and that the scientific community has at least 25 different definitions of orgasm. The term “disorder” is discussed in relation to female orgasmic disorder, in that a woman must be experiencing distress in order to be diagnosed with female orgasmic disorder. Dr. Tishler discusses the lack of research on male orgasm in comparison to female orgasm.

The value of cannabis is discussed in creating an altered state and being used in a thoughtful manner where one can distance oneself from inner voices, such as self-judgment, that stand in the way of orgasm. Dosage is discussed as being more complicated for men than for women.

Frequency of cannabis use is discussed as it relates to research on the topic and the discussion broadens to look at cannabis as a therapy, a medicine, to be used overtime, where the cannabis guides us to know what issues need to be addressed and resolved within oneself.

Suggestions are made if one is starting to use therapeutic cannabis to enhance sexuality and orgasm. Dr. Tishler makes recommendations as to how begin using cannabis, which method to use and not use, particularly when getting started using cannabis for sex.

Suzanne discusses what a pleasure practice is and making a commitment to it and how the body can learn/re-learn pleasurable sensations in a committed practice. Paying attention without vigilance, using journaling to integrate the experience and moving out of goal-orientation and into feelings and sensations are discussed as methods to retrain oneself.

“Creating an altered states (with cannabis) allows us to explore our orgasmic potential in ways that some people cannot access without a little intervention.”

Extra info:

Difficulty orgasming, which when accompanied by emotional distress, can be diagnosed as female orgasmic disorder, affects up to 41% of women worldwide. This percentage includes women who never orgasmed, women who used to orgasm but do not any longer, and women who orgasm in some situations but not others. The overarching theme of being diagnosed with female orgasmic disorder is that it causes emotional distress. Sadly, the percentage of women suffering from orgasmic difficulties/disorders has not changed in 50 years.

Suzanne is committed to helping women heal their orgasm and discovering proven pathways to orgasm. She has presented her research on cannabis, female orgasm and female orgasmic disorder at international conferences including, the 2021 World Conference for Sexual Medicine. In May, 2022, she presented Three theories explore why women who use cannabis regularly are twice as likely to orgasm at the Cannabis Clinical Outcomes Research Conference in Orlando, Florida. She is conducting a survey and collecting data for her dissertation to explore if women are using cannabis to help orgasm.

Research shows that women who use cannabis more frequently are twice as likely to orgasm. Suzanne is conducting the first study of its kind to focus exclusively on exploring the effect cannabis has on women who have difficulty orgasming.
