Article: CBD for an Improved Libido and Sex Life

CBD for an Improved Libido and Sex Life

Extraction technologies have advanced over the past 50 years, manufacturers and extractors alike have independently isolated the CBD compounds and have been added to many products including soft drinks, edibles, medication, body creams, and lubricants. But can CBD assist you in the bedroom, or is this buzzword widely overused?

How does CBD affect Libido?

In order to fully understand whether or not CBD may help your sex life, it is important to understand what the research shows and how researchers think CBD works on our systems. 

Firstly, all human bodies have tiny receptors which are part of the entire system called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is composed of ligands, AEA, and 2-AG. Their congeners target receptors, metabolic enzymes and transporters. These tiny receptors may activate and stimulate your body's response when consuming CBD.

The research

Based on 2009 research published in the journal of Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, it has been discovered that the endocannabinoid receptors were found in the sexual organs including the testicles and also the brain. In addition, it was also discovered that CBD and THC reduce anxiety and stress during sex, leading to improved organ performance. 

Oxocan offers a range of full-spectrum CBD oils and CBD capsules alongside the 100% natural and organic essential oils and CBD candles that may help you set the mood.  

Does CBD have any sexual benefits? 

Although there isn't a lot of research done on this subject matter, there are definitely a lot of products emerging on the market which might assist those who are looking for a holistic and natural approach if dealing with this health condition. These products address the following sexual concerns. 

  • Poor Lubrication - There are millions of adults who suffer from dryness during sex and this can lead to great discomfort and pain. Many CBD companies and manufacturers are providing a CBD-infused lubricant that aids in such conditions. As a result, researchers have studied the direct effects of topical CBD as a dermatology treatment option. Based on 2020 research published in the journal Fitoterapia, topical CBD was shown to produce anti-inflammation, leading to a more pleasing sexual experience. 

  • Low Sex Drive - People who use CBD to alleviate pain, anxiety and stress can testify to the theory that cannabis does affect sexual desire. A recent study published by the National Library of Medicine showed that cannabis users discovered that cannabis activated the part of the brain responsible for controlling sexual arousal. 

  • Erectile Dysfunction - It is estimated that a third of all adult males suffer from some form of erectile dysfunction (ED) and this greatly increases between the ages of 40 to 70. Although this condition increases with age, it is also possible that younger males can also experience some form of ED. According to an article published in the journal BioMed Research International, practitioners have used the Cannabis Sativa from which CBD is derived to improve ejaculatory function and sexual performance. They believed that CBD has the potential to relax the blood vessels and promote blood flow during sex.
