No one ever complains about having great food, great friends, or great sex.
Of those three, the last one may be the hardest for most people to find, and for those who have found it, there is always room for improvement.
A lot goes into having a satisfying sex life, including open communication, physical compatibility, and emotional connection.
There’s also a lot that can get in the way of intimacy and pleasure, leading many couples and single people to look for ways to up their game.
Many couples are discovering how to use cannabis in the bedroom.
However, people are also learning that too much cannabis – or even the wrong kind – can put some anxiety into your head.
Those looking to improve their sex lives but who wish to avoid cannabis’s psychedelic effects may find a solution in CBD.
CBD and Pre-Performance Stress
For such a natural experience, there can be a lot of mental hang-ups wrapped up in sex.
Guilt, shame, previous negative or traumatic experiences, performance anxiety, and many other tensions in your head can affect how the rest of your body feels during what should be both pleasurable and emotionally satisfying.
While a glass of wine or other alcoholic beverages have been the traditional path to helping people unwind into a night of fun, it can come with hangovers the next day, a bad night of sleep, and some regrets.
CBD, on the other hand, can be a non-intoxicating way to help people relax while looking forward to the night ahead.
Consuming CBD before sexual activity may help turn down the volume on stress, helping you to ignore what’s going on outside the bedroom and be present in the moment with your partner.
Plus, unlike alcohol, you can look forward to a great night of sleep afterwards.
CBD and Sexual Pleasure
A preclinical volunteer trial published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology has shown that CBD has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system, lowering blood pressure and increasing blood flow by expanding arteries and veins.
During sex, sensitive areas such as the head of the penis and the clitoris become engorged with blood. Thus, more blood flow means more sensitivity, increasing pleasure for everyone involved.
Conversely, high blood pressure can make sex more physically difficult and less enjoyable for both men and women by restricting blood flow to the penis or vagina.
CBD and Age-Related Sexual Issues
For older people and couples, CBD can be a boon to their love lives.
For example, the anti-inflammatory aspects of CBD can make a big difference to women dealing with the aches and pains often associated with menopause.
Also, hormonal changes during menopause can cause less blood flow to the vagina, leading to dryness and decreased sexual pleasure.
CBD, when used topically, can help heal inflamed, sensitive tissues through its anti-inflammatory properties, while also improving blood flow due to its vascular benefits as mentioned above.
Older men who may also experience sexual performance issues stemming from prostate inflammation and/or high blood pressure may also find benefit from CBD for these same reasons.
NOTE: If you’re taking other medications, please consult your doctor for potential interactions with cannabis, especially before consuming CBD-rich products.
Finding the Best CBD Product for You
If adding CBD into your sex life has sparked your interest, there is no better time to try it out.
Besides, doing your own personal research will be much more rewarding than simply reading about it.
There are countless CBD products already on the market, including vapes, tinctures, edibles, and topicals.
You might also wish to combine a few, such as topicals and edibles, for the ultimate effect.
Most cannabis dispensaries carry some type of sexual enhancement oil or spray and the internet is a fantastic resource for reading reviews and finding the best product for your needs.
