Cannabinoids and Sex Talk

Posted by Ryan Mandaville on

“Let’s talk about sex”

Taboo subjects shouldn't always be ignored. Sexual health is an important factor in daily mental health. Having sexual relations on a regular basis has proven to have benefits of its own. First, people who have sex regularly have higher levels of antibodies to protect against viruses. This is the main reason sexually assertive people generally live healthier lifestyles. It’s as good as exercising. Not only does sex burn calories, but it gets your heart rate up and makes you move those muscles that you do not use so often. This also aids with lowering the risk of heart problems, such as a heart attack, osteoporosis or heart disease. Overall mental health can be affected as well by aiding in reducing stress and insuring and good night sleep.

More benefits of an active sex life:

  • Boost libido
  • Improves bladder control in women
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Keeps estrogen and testosterone levels in balance
  • Lowers chances of prostate cancer
  • Can boost self-esteem and overall happiness (Anti-Depressant)

Research suggests CBD can help your sex life regarding the following:

  • Stress, anxiety, psychological and emotional stability (calm and mental clarity)
  • Promotes energy and stamina
  • Pain Relief
  • Increased Dopamine levels (Activating Serotonin Receptors)

Study: June 2010

This study was done on the effects of cannabinoids and sexual behavior in both male and females. While CBD has been suggested to help aid with anxiety and stress, varying doses of THC can potentially affect a male’s performance in the bedroom. Though most men won’t tell you, some studies have shown that THC has the ability to lower testosterone in the male. This can lead to fatigue, less sexual motivation and erectile functioning. This is mainly seen after a high dose of THC. However, THC increases dopamine levels, which can lead to more intimate relations. The study states that women have seen more beneficial results than men when it comes to cannabinoids and sex. This study also revealed a suppression of gonadotropin release by cannabinoids, which can potentially lower sex hormone levels. As always, you should consult your doctor before starting or stopping any health supplement. Hormones can be tricky and a medical professional gets paid lots of money to research them - so we will just leave that up to them. Here is another study involving CBD and Hormones/Behavior.

*Studies have shown that High CBD strains of THC or Pure CBD hemp oil can potentially intensify orgasms in females.  This is due to improved blood flow and increased lubrication. What more reason could you possibly need to give CBD a try today?  *

Though many are turning to CBD to help have more relaxed sex, there is no supplement for keeping an open communication line while in the bedroom. Talk to your partner and get comfortable with them. Chances are, both of you can benefit from having a “CBD and Sex” talk. (There is no pop-up book for this talk….yet!) Do you have a question or comment about CBD?
