Everything You Wanted to Know About CBD and Sex

Hoping to spice up your sex life? Eager to stop contributing to the current sexual recession? Satisfying sexual relationships can give a huge boost to a sense of overall well-being. What fine luck for the human race that cannabidiol, a.k.a. CBD, can support a sex life that's relaxed and comfortable, enjoyable and exciting.

In the Mood

The whole idea with taking CBD is to connect with your body’s naturally occurring system of internal cannabinoid receptors. Yes, your body has natural receptors for cannabidiol! And that's pretty sexy.

How can CBD support an active sex life? First, the basics:

  • CBD creates no "high" and doesn't alter a person's consciousness. It doesn't take a toll on the organs. That makes it a better pick, from a well-being standpoint, than old-fashioned swigs of alcohol.
  • In some people, CBD helps ease the frustration of erectile dysfunction.
  • Its role as an energy booster is one of the most valuable CBD benefits. So, CBD naturally complements and enhances intimacy.

Smooth Encounters

CBD oil can even be used as a safe, plant-based lubricant. Because of CBD's famous anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is sought out as a lubricant that eases any painful swelling. Meanwhile, it raises the level of feel-good serotonin hormones. All of that naturally contributes to the joy of sex. A little goes a long way.

Here we might add a few words about lubrication during sex, as it is, we'd imagine, a little-discussed topic. Healthline notes that Alex Capano, who teaches Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp studies at Thomas Jefferson University, explains:

  • Our sexual organs and tissues have an especially extensive network of cannabinoid receptors.
  • CBD heightens sensitivity by helping the blood flow through our bodies. This activity not only causes us to feel more sensitivity. It also promotes our own natural lubrication process.

How to Use CBD Oil for Sex, With Microdosing

People are different. But microdosing pure, hemp-based CBD oil might just offer the optimum benefits. Use the dropper to place a drop under the tongue. Through a little experimenting with your CBD dosage, you and your partner can find the sweet spot where gentle relaxation meets an awakening of the senses.

Regularly taking a little CBD oil could extend the benefits over time. Much depends on maintaining a work-life balance, including time for intimacy that's as lively as you would like.

How do you do it? Take regular, small doses over the course of the day. There is no dose written in stone. No two people have the same internal system of receptors. One person's five milligrams is another person's ten! So, how do you get familiar with your own best microdosage? Start low. Get a sense of just how much CBD oil offers effects. You'll find your own best standard.

Not Just "One and Done"

Microdosing is not for the person who simply wants the ease of taking a single dose in the morning and be done. If you prefer that convenience, you're opting to experience your biggest boost early in your day. Your alternatives to that full, morning dose are two: you can make yours a nightly dose, or you can experiment with microdosing. Because microdosing brings subtler effects, it's a matter of watching for gentle, positive changes.

Bottled CBD oil with a dropper is perfect for microdosing in regular amounts throughout your day. With this method, CBD is easy to take in small, consistent amounts.

Bottled CBD oil is also discrete. If you decide to use the microdosing technique with CBD oil, it's perfectly convenient to keep a bottle handy throughout the day.

Overcoming Nervousness About Sex

CBD supports a relaxed sense of clear-headedness. This, in turn, logically leads to less potential embarrassment and a better sense of confidence.

Internal cannabinoid receptors set off a release of serotonin in the body, too. Serotonin is the "happy chemical" that lifts our emotions.

A hefty body of research has shown that cannabidiol is connected with pain relief. Studies have also noted CBD's promise for easing symptoms of stress and anxiety. That's good news for a person attempting to overcome the mood of loneliness, and loosen the grip of depression. (People using CBD oil to ease depression might start with a dose between 5 and 10 mg daily, until satisfied with the results.) If CBD can do that, it can make real differences in people's lives.
