CBD and SEX: Can CBD help your time in the bedroom
Can CBD boost your performance in the bedroom?
There is nothing to be shy about, we all do it. Sex is a natural part of life and also very enjoyable! CBD is becoming the buzz word of the century for its multiple benefits BUT.. is it true it can help with all things bedroom orientated? Well, let’s dive in into CBD and Sex
Brief scientific entrance on the Endocannabinoid System
When CBD is ingested into the body, it has an indirect effect on our body’s Endocannabinoid System. This system is responsible for balancing our body’s internal systems and providing homeostasis.
But how? CBD has an indirect effect on boosting our natural produced endocannabinoids, called Anandamide and 2-AG. These Endocannabinoids bind to our CB1 and CB2 receptors in response to certain happenings around us. It provides a balancing effect.
For example, your loved one has asked you to dress up as a fireman! This is extremely worrying and causes lots anxiety for you … your body uses its naturally produced Endocannabinoids to reduce this stress by binding to the relevant receptors.
Now we briefly know what CBD does, how can this help us in the bedroom?
CBD and Erections
Yep, bold subtitle. Put very simply, due to CBD’s ability to stimulate our Endocannabinoid system, it can dramatically reduce anxiety and worry. Anxiety and worry are both huge reasons for premature ejaculation and lack of erection all together, which is detrimental for bedroom activities. Remember, you can’t play snooker with a rope!
Daily use of CBD is proving to be a natural remedy to anxiety and could certainly calm those pre-sex nerves.
So say goodbye to floppy floppyson and say hello to your new Thrill Drill!
Same old excuses for NO sex
I’m too tired, I’m too stressed, I didn’t sleep very well last night, I need an early night, you’re just too good I can’t keep up with you… Ok that last one isn’t true.
Due to CBD’s calming effect on the body taking 3-6 drops before bed can help you get off to sleep quicker and improve the quality of sleep significantly. Check out this study on CBD and sleep here
No more excuses about being tired and stressed! Time to get down to it!
Spice it up with some CBD massaging
CBD is extremely popular in fitness studios and gyms. Many personal trainers and massage therapists are using CBD oil in treatments due to its anti-inflammatory properties. How? As mentioned above, it stimulates the ECS (Endocannabinoid system) which is a huge factor in our body’s defence to inflammation.
So why not make it a little more intimate? Light a candle, get some music on and treat your partner to a CBD massage. The increased blood flow and relaxation of the body is the perfect foreplay scenario.
Aaaand it’s all over. Literally the worst feeling.
Can CBD save you from the embarrassment? Well, normally premature ejaculation is due to stress/ anxiety but it can also be a number of other aspects in your life. There is no golden cure but to increase sexual performance, a key factor will be living a healthy lifestyle. Exercise, healthy food, not drinking too much and living your life with balance.
Balance is the key. Due to CBD’s indirect response with our body’s internal systems to promote homeostasis, we can find our balance and inner sexual zen. Once that’s found, there will be no stopping you and your libido will be stronger than ever.
Why not give it a shot?
CBD is no magic cure, but it certainly provides benefits to improve your sex life. Whether that’s reduced stress, improved sleep or new foreplay ideas, it’s something worth putting into your daily supplementation.
All jokes aside, no one should miss out on having fun in the bedroom and feeling relaxed. So, if it’s a real problem – first analyse and improve your lifestyle, then maybe try some natural supplements, and finally if it’s still a problem, consult your doctor.
Final note for the lads – don’t believe the adverts, nothing can make that happen…. You know what we’re talking about! 😉
