CBD, Valentine Day, and How to make your sexual life better

It’s Valentine's Day, shall I get him/her a CBD gift?

February 14 celebrates lovers and is no longer limited to jewelry, perfumes, chocolates, and simple flowers. The cannabis industry is booming, and giving (or treating yourself) CBD-rich cannabis gift ideas for your "Valentine", and it makes perfect sense.

CBD cannabis has the peculiarity of knowing how to deepen the bonds between people and strengthen the feelings of love and affection, to the point that it would be strange not to include them in the couple's day.

In addition to this, cannabis is the subject of studies and insights because there is now scientific evidence that affirms that CBD is great in helping have more satisfying sexual intercourses. We’ll get there, let's proceed in order. Meanwhile, start thinking about which CBD gift could be more appropriate for him/her. Here are some suggestions.

Does cannabis improve sex life?

Most of the cannabis effects on sex life are related to the compound known as CBD (Cannabidiol) a compound found in the cannabis plant, Benefits include increased libido and increased lubrication, here are some hot topics in the study phase:

  • CBD may provide relief from both stress and performance anxiety by increasing sexual desire
  • Experts have discovered a link between CBD and increased orgasms through the endocannabinoid 2-AG, which plays a vital role in sexual arousal
  • Some research is focusing on the effect of CBD on treating erectile dysfunction. As studies have shown, it can potentially relieve tense muscles while also lowering blood pressure.

For this reason, there are plenty of products with isolated CBD on the market, including those specifically designed for sexual activity such as CBD massage oils and CBD massage creams.

How Cannabis Affects Libido

Inside your body, there are small receptors that are part of a whole system that scientists call the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Think of these receptors as locks that, thanks to a key (in this case CBD cannabis), can be activated. Although CBD cannabis does not unblock them directly, the chemical process can trigger a series of reactions in the body that stimulate the entire endocannabinoid system.

According to a 2009 article published in the Annals journal of the New York Academy of Sciences, researchers found that ECS receptors in the sexual reproductive organs, such as the testes, are also present in the human brain, further studies have shown how CBD increases libido and sexual activity once these receptors are activated through the intake of CBD cannabis.

Another recent study has seen a panel of people with sexual problems related to performance anxiety being placed in a research program to prove the effectiveness of CBD cannabis treatment for this type of disorder, showing that CBD products can also improve libido by reducing anxiety thus increasing sexual desire.

Sexual benefits linked CBD Cannabis use

Some scientific evidence getting more and more tested has begun to demonstrate how CBD oil and in general cannabis with high CBD content, can help in the treatment of some very common sexual dysfunctions such as:

Erectile dysfunction

According to an article from the reputable research journal BioMed, Ayurveda practitioners have been using CBD extracts for many years to improve ejaculatory function and sexual performance. Exactly how CBD can help fight erectile dysfunction has not yet been precisely established, but there are a few theories. One of these is that CBD, being a natural dilator vessel, could improve blood flow to the penis by helping those suffering from erectile dysfunction, favoring longer-lasting sexual intercourse.

Poor lubrication

Lubrication is very important to ensure a woman has satisfying and pleasant sexual intercourse. Researchers have studied the effects of CBD cannabis as a dermatological treatment directly on the sexual organs. According to a 2010 article in the journal Phytotherapy, topical CBD has an anti-inflammatory effect, which makes sex more comfortable.

Decline in desire

Another theory is that cannabis affects sexual desire directly in the brain. A 2017 study on a panel of cannabis users found that cannabis activated the part of the brain that controls sexual arousal. The authors concluded that the use of cannabis can also be useful for people with low sexual desire.

Performance anxiety

Performance anxiety is one of the main reasons why people have episodes to forget in the bedroom. For some men, it is having that inner voice that makes them doubt themselves during the act. For some women, it can manifest itself in the difficulty of getting aroused or the frustration of not reaching orgasm. CBD cannabis has shown the potential to relieve anxiety, gaining a well-deserved place on the nightstands of those wanting relief before sexual performance. In addition, its anticonvulsant effectiveness and muscle relaxant potential must also be considered.

It's not all. Research has found that CBD has the potential to increase anandamide levels in the body. Experts describe this chemical as the "bliss molecule" associated with oxytocin (also known as "the cuddle hormone"). With higher levels of anandamide along with an endorphin release, a better experience is expected.

High THC cannabis and sex: potential downsides

While CBD may have benefits when it comes to sex, scientists have several doubts about how the consumption of high-THC cannabis affects fertility instead.

In any case, the advice we give is always to speak to your doctor before taking CBD if you are considering having a child.

How to use CBD to improve your sex life

You can incorporate CBD products into your sex life in a variety of ways. Here are some examples:

  • Smoking CBD cannabis before sex encourages more fulfilling sex.
  • Ingest CBD oil, or use CBD-based oil for massages during foreplay.
  • Drink a CBD herbal tea or infusion to warm up and get in the mood.
  • Explore the topical CBD products specifically developed to maximize sensitivity, lubrification, and bloodstream in the genital area, and apply them during foreplay.

As researchers will further examine the effects of CBD on sexual life, the number of products on the market dedicated to this niche will likely explode.

Why planning CBD intake is important to improve your sexual life

Unlike THC, by using CBD you won't experience a significant shift in consciousness. Not only that, but the effects of CBD can also take days or weeks to become really noticeable.

Each person will react differently to CBD as to any other substance, so you will have to experiment in terms of right dosage for the desired effect. The more you become familiar with the effects of CBD, the more you will be able to use it to your advantage. However, if you want a ballpark of timing, you should wait at least 30 minutes after smoking, vaping or consuming CBD cannabis before engaging in sexual activity.

If you take CBD orally, for example in the CBD oil form, you will need to wait at least 45–60 minutes for it to start producing effects. For topical CBD (lubricants, etc.) wait until you feel the effects before starting (usually around 30 minutes). Although these times are only suggestions not verified by experts and remembering that your body mass will play a role in CBD dosage and effectiveness, we hope our ballpark suggestions will allow you to consume CBD in a way that its effects start before the intercourse.
