A whopping 64% surveyed say CBD improved their sex
I can go on and on about the benefits that CBD has on our lives for various reasons like, anti-inflammation, anti-anxiety, pain relief, stress relief, etc. But, what isn’t talked about much, maybe because of it’s taboo nature, is the effect that CBD has on our sex lives. The above cited recent survey, reveals that people who have tried CBD for after dark activities, more than half have shown positive results from CBD use.
A large population doesn't even know that CBD is an option
What’s more eyebrow raising is that 94% of the surveyed didn’t even know you could use CBD as a sexual stimulant. Quite possibly, you’re part of the 94% until reading this article. There is one glaring reason why there is so much unknown potential of CBD use in the bedroom. LEGALITY! Yes, only recently has CBD been given the green light from the U.S. Gov’t to be federally legal to farm and distribute. Before this, any legitimate testing of Cannabis and CBD has been minimal at best. Now, with a new landscape, more and more studies will be undertaken to prove or disprove many of the anecdotal evidence. We need more science to wrinkle more bedsheets.
Those in the know use Gummies
These stats were really interesting to me. Knowing the ins and outs of CBD administrative methods and CBD time to effect, I would think more people would be using products that are more potent and/or have a quicker response time. Edibles, by nature, are the slowest method to feel any effects of CBD (due to the digestive tract). But, seeing vaping as a close 2nd choice, that was really the administrative method I would have assumed to be 1st. Vaping allows CBD to enter the bloodstream really quickly through your lungs. You could feel the effects within 3-4 puffs on your disposable or custom vaping device (equates from seconds to minutes in effectiveness).
6 Reasons CBD Can Help in the Bedroom
1. Improving Desire
Cannabidiol (CBD) can be used as an aphrodisiac in many ways: smoking, vaping, lubricants and eating CBD chocolates and Gummies are all popular ways to achieve its aphrodisiac effects. In other words, while the most well-known benefits of CBD are tailored toward anxiety and pain, there’s also a chance that it can help with arousal and desire levels. When applied topically, CBD dilates your blood vessels, allowing fresh oxygenated blood to flow more easily. In other words, CBD is a vasodilator. Typically, fresh oxygenated blood is associated with increased arousal and stimulation.
2. Relieving Pain
If chronic discomfort or sexual dysfunction are problems, CBD may also be able to help with pain during sex. Studies show that CBD is a potent anti-inflammatory and can be effective as an adjunct treatment for pain. For example, topical, whole-plant CBD balm can help women experiencing painful sexual intercourse due to vaginal dryness or irritation. CBD lube also does the trick.
3. Decreasing Anxiety
One of the many ways that people use CBD is to help fight anxiety and improve their mental state. CBD works directly on the body’s endocannabinoid system, a complex network of receptors in the body that help regulate the nervous system, immune system and the body’s organs. Those receptors, when activated by the body’s own endocannabinoids, can have an anti-anxiety effect on the brain. Furthermore, using CBD in the bedroom can create a feeling of calm, relaxation and elation, translating into enhanced sexual pleasure.
4. Strengthening Sensations
When it comes to the female reproductive tract, cannabinoid receptors are found in the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina and vulva, and they play a significant role in the day-to-day pleasures and pain associated with sex. These receptors are key in improving low libido and the inability to achieve orgasms. Men experiencing issues with erectile dysfunction may also benefit from using CBD. As previously mentioned, CBD increases blood flow and nerve sensation, which can help enhance sexual pleasure and intensify orgasms for all parties.
5. Enhancing Foreplay
To help tune into the physical experience of foreplay, CBD lube enhances sensation and climax. Largely due to its ability to repair tissue damage and improve blood flow to the genitals, a coconut oil-based CBD lube is gaining popularity. Combined with THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, men and women report an enhanced sex drive. Plus, CBD lube relieves women of the pain they sometimes feel during penetration as it relaxes the tissues surrounding the sex organ.
6. Relaxing with CBD
Fast-absorbing and lightweight, using a sensorial body oil offers targeted topical relief as well as natural energy. In between the sheets, try a CBD-infused body oil to reduce muscle tension and create a soothing sensation. The therapeutic blend of essential oils combined with full-spectrum cannabinoids leverage the natural power of the whole plant. Before getting frisky, massage your partner’s back and arms with CBD body oil.
