CBD and Your Sex Life

Lately, everywhere you turn all you hear about is CBD. It is being declared a miracle supplement but is it good for everything? What about CBD and your sex life? Couples are looking at CBD (cannabidiol) for sex for a variety of reasons. Find out how this cannabinoid can make a difference in the bedroom.

 

The Popularity of CBD for Sex

Remedy Review recently performed a survey that involved 5,398 Americans. They focused on CBD in the bedroom. The research revealed that 9.3% of respondents used CBD for sex. In fact, they reported stronger and more intense orgasms while using CBD. Clearly, as sexual freedoms continue to evolve, the use of CBD is becoming exceedingly popular to enhance intimacy. 

 

CBD and Sex

When looking at CBD and your sex life, the main reason people explore herbs is to increase their pleasure levels, ease stress (especially performance anxiety), create a certain mood, and control pain. 

 

Lubrication and CBD 

The reproductive organs contain cannabinoid receptors. Research shows that even the testicles have endocannabinoid receptors which makes them especially responsive to cannabidiol. CBD appears to increase blood flow within those tissues, according to Alex Capano, a faculty member at the Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp at Thomas Jefferson University. When CBD interacts with the cannabinoid receptors, sensitivity and natural lubrication also increase. 

 

Relaxation, Sex, and Cannabidiol

Sex can be incredibly stressful for many people. They may have “performance anxiety” and or be concerned with achieving and maintaining an erection. Many turn to CBD in the hopes of relaxing before they indulge in any form of intimacy. Studies actually reveal that CBD can reduce anxiety associated with sexual function which may prove beneficial in making sexual experiences more fulfilling and enjoyable. Consider taking a dropper of any of the Also Organics CBD tinctures under your tongue before engaging in sexual activity.

Another aspect of relaxation is physical. If you suffer from muscle spasms or aching joints, try using a CBD topical such as Also Organics pain salve which is a mixture of menthol, lidocaine, beeswax, and CBD. You apply the topical to the area of discomfort. Our pain salves are available in 500 mg CBD and 1000 mg CBD.

 

Enhanced Sexual Mood

The joy of sex is clearly impacted by your emotions. If you are not in the mood for sex, then the entire experience might be lackluster at best. However, with the right mental state, you can quickly achieve far greater pleasure. CBD appears to positively boost your mood by increasing and enhancing anandamide which is a neurotransmitter. Known as the ‘bliss neurotransmitter’ or the ‘cuddle hormone,’ anandamide and other natural neurotransmitters and endorphins are increased to create a far better sexual experience. 

 

Erectile Dysfunction 

For centuries Ayurveda practitioners have turned to cannabis to improve the male ejaculatory function which helps to increase the ability to sexually perform for some men, especially those suffering from erectile dysfunction. Many theorize that CBD promotes blood flow to relieve ED. In one study, the blood pressure in males was reduced which could ultimately help with ED. 

 

Using CBD in the Bedroom

Here are just a few considerations when using CBD for sex:

 

Invest in a Quality Product

Read reviews and research the brand of CBD that you are interested in using to enhance your sex life. You’ll want to make sure that the CBD that you purchase is free of potential contaminants and has undergone third-party laboratory testing to ensure purity. 

 

The Ideal Dose

Read the label on your CBD product to determine your ideal dose or how to use the item. With all CBD products offered by Also Organics, dosage information is printed clearly on the label.

 

Plan with CBD

If you are taking a CBD tincture, capsule, gummy or applying a topical, then you’ll want to plan for sex. Take the CBD product at least thirty to sixty minutes before sexual intercourse so you can give your body time to absorb the cannabinoid and start using it. Ideally, you should also give topicals the same amount of time for fast skin absorption.
