Can CBD Improve Your Sex Life?

For people who live with stress, performance anxiety or experience sensations of pain in the bedroom, CBD-infused products can really help. Studies and research carried out by medical experts and scientists have tapped into CBD’s healing properties. This includes decreased inflammation, better gut health, calming properties, improved sleeping patterns and plenty more. In addition to all these benefits and beyond medicinal purposes, cannabidiol can actually be used to give your sex life a new lease of life to!

Increase Desire

Cannabis can actually be utilised as an effective aphrodisiac in lots of ways: smoking, vaping, lubricants as well as eating cannabis gummies are all common ways to get those aphrodisiac effects. In other ways, while the most established benefits of CBD are affiliated with anxiety and pain relief, there is also a possibility that it can increase sexual arousal. When a CBD oil is applied topically, the CBD and THC will dilate your blood vessels, permitting fresh oxygenated blood to flow more easily. In other words, CBD and TCH are vasodilators. Often, fresh oxygenated blood is associated with increased arousal and stimulation. 

Relieving Any Pain 

If chronic discomfort or sexual dysfunction issues are something you deal with, CBD may also be able to help with discomfort during sex. Research indicates that CBD is an impactful anti-inflammatory and can be effective as a natural treatment for pain. An example being, topical, whole-plant CBD balm which can help women experiencing painful sexual intercourse due to dryness or irritation. CBD lube also works extremely well! 

Stimulate Sensations

Believe it or not, cannabinoid receptors are found in the uterus, ovaries, vagina and vulva, and they play a key role in the day-to-day pleasures and pain which can often come with sexual activities. These receptors are the key to improving low sex-drive and the inability to reach orgasms. Men who also experience issues with erectile dysfunction may also benefit from CBD usage. As mentioned, CBD increases blood flow and nerve sensation, which can, in turn, help increase pleasure and intensify orgasms for everyone involved.

Enjoy Foreplay

To allow you to be fully in the moment when experiencing foreplay, CBD lube can increase sensations as well as climax. Very much due to how it can repair any tissue damage and increase blood flow to the genitals. This combined with the psychoactive elements of cannabis have proved effective for both men and women in enhancing sex drive. Moreover, CBD lube can relieve women of the pain they sometimes have during penetration as it relaxes the surrounding area it’s applied to.
