Can CBD Improve Your Sex Life?
Let’s talk about sex, baby let’s talk about C-B-D! The topic of sex is such a taboo, isn’t it? The idea of sexual well-being, pleasure and desire remaining hidden behind an army of social norms, religious restrictions, and morality is… intimidating.
What is life truly about if we aren’t experiencing all its simple pleasures?
The idea of CBD promoting sexual fulfillment was highlighted in a 2019 article written by RN, Rachel Mall, and appeared on Healthline, highlighting the impacts of the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) when it comes to sex. To start, we’ll need a deeper understanding about the ECS. According to Healthline, the ECS involves three core components: endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes which collectively regulate a range of functions such as sleep, mood, appetite, memory, reproduction and fertility.
Endocannabinoids are molecules made by your body. They’re similar to cannabinoids, but they’re produced by your body. The receptors are found throughout your body. Endocannabinoids bind to them in order to signal that the ECS needs to take action such as relieving pain. Other cannabinoids attach to them, including CBD, CBG, THC and other cannabinoids not yet discovered. So when CBD makes contact with our ECS system, our body responds to its presence.
CBD for Sex
CBD can increase blood flow and nerve sensation which may greatly enhance sexual pleasure and intensify orgasms for all parties. While CBD is not a proven treatment for erectile dysfunction or other sexual discomforts, the results and benefits people are experiencing from CBD use are enough to keep them using this natural alternative to enhance their sexual and self exploration.
CBD has been used in topicals such as lubricants, massage oils and its even been attempted to be integrated into condoms! There is still so much to be discovered about CBD (plus all of the other cannabinoids) and its hundreds of ways it can help and enhance our human bodies + experiences. So instead of grabbing for the oysters, next time roll up a joint, have our signature pen handy or use some topicals to enhance your sexual experience!
