What Can CBD Do for Your Sex Drive?
Just because sex is considered by some to be a taboo subject, it is important not to underestimate its role as one of the most important parts of a person’s life. Moreover, it’s no surprise that problems with one’s sex life can be frustrating and lead to stress, embarrassment and even resentment. One of the key elements that help couples around the world is communication, so in this article, we will explore the potential of CBD in helping partners rediscover the beauty of intimacy.
1. Pain, go away
Pain is one of the most common reasons why people lose their sex drive. Painful sex can have serious negative emotional effects on both partners. So, the sooner you address this problem, the better. In this regard, we would like to mention dyspareunia, a sexual problem common in women that involves difficult or painful intercourse. This issue can have a significant effect on a woman’s sex life, as well as her mental and physical health. CBD may be able to have analgesic properties and help people combat multiple pain symptoms. As a result, CBD products can not only be a possible solution to eliminating painful sex (dyspareunia) for women but also any other pain symptoms both partners may have.
2. CBD and erectile dysfunction
Another problem that affects sexual life, but for men, is erectile dysfunction. This problem is the inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. As this study showed, anxiety may be one of the main factors in causing erectile dysfunction. CBD’s potential positive effects in dealing with anxiety disorders have led some people to believe that cannabidiol may be a solution. Either way, the final word is up to the medical professionals.
3. Impact of stress on libido
There is no doubt that stress, anxiety and life’s pressures have an effect on our libido. Particularly, it impacts us psychologically (causing a busy, frazzled mind, and distracting you from wanting to have sex or be present during sex, as well as leading to anxiety and depression) and physiologically (triggering the release of hormones that in high concentrations can diminish your sex drive). There is evidence that the CBD compound can stimulate a number of the endocannabinoid system’s receptors that are responsible for anxiety, stress and fear. This can mean that a mentally challenging day doesn’t have to hinder your sex drive. Another study showed that the concentration of endocannabinoids in the body may have a direct correlation with sexual arousal.
4. Last but not least
One study said that CBD may be able to enhance anandamide signaling and inhibit degradation of the endocannabinoid anandamide. The anandamide molecule is also known as the “love hormone” and multiple studies in both animals and humans suggest that reinforced anandamide can increase pleasure from social interactions, including sexual experiences.
