Could CBD Help Spice Up Your Sex Life?
CBD (a beneficial non-psychoactive) cannabinoid can be particularly useful for making your sex life more relaxed, enjoyable and exciting. In fact 68% of those who tried a CBD product in the boudoir found that it enhanced their sex life. Cue Barry White and new heights in the bedroom.
Consider this scenario: You’ve had a rough day in the office, fighting traffic to get home has made you grumpy. After feeding the family, not to mention a complete house overhaul and after tucking the kids into bed you just want to sink into the armchair, Netflix and chill. You are in no way in the mood for love. Or are you? No. Game of Thrones is not having its usual effect. You are just not feeling very confident in your body anymore. Your partner is giving you that look. You are so tense. A gazillion things are talking up your headspace. You wish you didn’t have any inhibitions and just let go. CBD could be the answer.
The ‘Bliss’ Hormone
CBD oil creates natural arousal and capacity for pleasure. It activates the serotonin receptors, thereby acting as a natural receptor. CBD decreases anxiety by decreasing the degradation of anandamide the ‘bliss’ hormone. Simply put it decreases the ‘worry’ factor. Phew! – less tension and by all anecdotal accounts an ability to really experience the moment of sexual intimacy. You feel heightened desire. Because the emotional barrier has come down couples experience better orgasms that are not only physical but mental and emotional experiences. A real sensory bonding.
The Science Bit – So How Exactly Does It Work?
CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system. Scientists are still trying to understand the interplay between CBD and our brains. CBD expresses itself differently for women. CBD plays a big role in affecting the estrogen hormone which regulates everything from mood to libido. CBD poses an interesting offer to women who find sex painful or experience discomfort.
CBD is said to help reduce anxiety,which is a major cause of premature ejaculation. It reduces the psychological tension and allows for a better ‘timed’ ejaculation. The best delivery would be one that is medium to fast acting and taken prior to sexual intimacy. Consider sprays or CBD tinctures. According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, erectile dysfunction currently affects 1 in 4 men under the age of 40. Just as in females it improves libido for guys too.
Lube Glorious Lube
This deserves a paragraph all by itself! CBD can help with muscle relaxation, pain relief and inflammation – this is well known. So using CBD to create lube makes sense. ‘CBD saved my orgasms’ – these are the headings that are coming up when I search CBD lube – We don’t subscribe to hyperbole online but these headings make us females sit up and listen. This demands attention. CBD acts to promote whole body homeostasis, which is a fancy term for saying it helps bring a sense of ‘balance’. CBD can tackle a range of problems simultaneously. Ta da – this is why it is superior to traditional lubricants, which has only one function.
CBD lube does a LOT. 75% of women experience pain during sex, with penetration being the main issue, according to the American College of Obstetricians. This could be a godsend for a lot of women. It regenerates and moisturizers delicate skin, alleviates pain and reduces anxiety.
Sssh Do You Wanna Know A Secret?
Unsurprisingly CBD lube can also lead to better orgasms. It makes you ‘feel’ better. It appears to stimulate the body’s own natural lubricants and dramatically increase the number of sensations and orgasms. It may not be long before you will be recapturing that iconic Meg Ryan moment with your partner. But, yours won’t be fake.
Medical News Today pinpoint CBD as a great remedy to help women as they go through the menopause. This is a time in a woman’s life where they go through hormonal changes which results in disrupted sleep, irritability and temperature irregularity, CBD stabilises fluctuations. CBD in the bedroom during menopause via lube reduces dryness and increases sensitivity.
