The range of CBD products has increased dramatically over the past few years as has the number of users. In addition to tinctures, an array of products ranging from food and beverages to personal health and cosmetic products are available today.
CBD had been widely know to be beneficial in reducing anxiety, improving focus, managing pain and reducing inflammation. There are many reasons people are turning to CBD as an aid for better sex for a number of reasons.
But there are other types of CBD products that are out there that can harnesses the power of CBD to make your intimate moments better. Let us examine what these are and why these CBD infused products could become your new best friend.
How CBD could help
Reducing anxiety and stress, including performance anxiety
For some, sex may not come easily during some stage in their life and can be anxiety inducing, in turn complicating matters and affect one’s performance. CBD’s ability to help reduce anxiety and relax you, both in the physical and mental state, can enhance your intimate moments. That relaxation can, in turn reduce the distractions and worries that hinder a positive sexual experience.
It has been found that the reproductive organs and sexual tissue have large amounts of cannabinoid receptors. CBD is a vasodilator, increasing blood flow to tissues, which helps increases sensitivity and promotes the body’s own natural lubrications. This can help make sex less painful and therefore more pleasurable.
CBD may enhance your emotional intimacy
CBD may help improve your intimacy by providing for a deeper emotional connection between each other. Research has shown that an increase in anandamide during social contact, including a sexual experience, helps increase emotional intimacy (“Ananda” in Sanskrit translates to “joy, bliss, or delight.”). Anandamide is our ‘bliss’ neurotransmitter, and it’s also associated with oxytocin (also known as the ‘cuddle hormone’). CBD may just put some people in the mood for romance, ultimately lead to a better sexual experience.
How CBD could help in achieving orgasm
Men can also benefit from CBD as cannabinoid’s have a potential to help with erectile dysfunction. This is due to CBD’s ability to repair tissue damage and improve blood flow to the genitals. Based on a recent study, researchers noted that erectile dysfunction (ED) is caused by the natural aging in men. The aging process creates a toxin called dioxin, which contributes to the onset of ED. CBD flushes dioxin from the body and therefore help improve blood flow.
Different methods of consuming CBD
CBD Massage oil
Massages are an ancient practice for de-stressing your muscles and if set in the right environment can get you in the mood as well. Anecdotal evidence to suggest that the direct application of CBD-infused lubricants to the female genitalia might increase blood flow to the area which in turn could help achieve a better orgasm. Note that oil based lubricants have the capacity to dissolve latex condoms, so be careful with this. Additionally, women should be cautious about another ingredient: glycerin. Vaginal pH balance is delicate and the addition of glycerin could cause yeast infection.
CBD oil tinctures
CBD oil can be consumed sublingually about 40 minutes beforehand and can be beneficial in reducing anxiety related to performance which can kill your sex drive and create challenges in the bedroom. For females, orgasm occurs at the intersection of high arousal and high relaxation, so the more relaxed you are, the easier it will be to experience pleasure.
CBD gummies can be a fun method to consume cannabinoids. They are small, tasty and less intimidating to new users. They are easy to consume and provide a more steady dose to the body, as they are metabolised slower than a tincture. Other fun products to try would be something like CBD chocolates.
There are those who don’t like the taste of oil or edibles but still want to take CBD to help them with having better sex. CBD suppositories are a great pre-sex aid. Inserting a suppository about 30-60 minutes before foreplay.
CBD vape/ CBD Flowers
Vaping is a quick and easy way to consume CBD. When you inhale the vapor into the lungs, CBD enters your bloodstream and reaches receptors in the brain and organs very quickly. Another method is smoking CBD flowers. The effects of CBD are almost instant like vaping but obviously suits people who don’t mind smoking. Smoking CBD flower is a great way to bond together, getting relaxed and ready to enjoy your moment of passion. You can also make tea from your flowers if smoking is not an option for you but the CBD will not enter your blood stream as effectively as a smoking or vaping.
Whichever way you want to consume your CBD, there are many options out there for you. Just make sure the products you purchased are from a reputable source that can provide lab results and wherever possible are natural and organic.
