Tips for pleasurable sex: CBD and sexuality

CBD is known for its pain killing and stress-busting properties. However, CBD oil has recently made its way into the bedroom.

Yes, you read that right. A CBD lubricant can help kill the pain and relax the muscles simultaneously.

This can potentially help make sex much less painful and more pleasurable.

Although relatively new to the mainstream market, individuals can take CBD in various ways — from oils and tinctures to topical creams and beverages.

Conversely, there are several ways CBD oil can serve as an ahem, nocturnal performance-enhancing substance.

It comes as a massage oil, CBD lubricant, edibles, or oral spray.

Below, we discuss how CBD oil can make sex more pleasurable.

What is CBD?

Cannabis is a plant that produces a thick substance full of compounds called cannabinoids. There are more than 100 of these chemicals in cannabis.

CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids in cannabis products. 

CBD is a chemical found in cannabis that doesn’t contain any THC, the substance traditionally associated with marijuana that makes you high.

The usual CBD formulation is oil, but CBD is also sold as an extract, a vaporized liquid, or an oil-based capsule.

CBD Lube Effect

CBD oil could increase blood flow to tissues, according to Alex Capano, the medical director for Ananda Hemp and faculty member at the Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp at Thomas Jefferson University. Capano also says this benefit increases sensitivity and promotes the body’s natural lubricants.

Unfortunately, the studies on CBD oil as a lubricant are still far from conclusive. That means that most reports about CBD oil being a good lubricant are anecdotal.

Nevertheless, there are still many who swear by it.

A survey of 5,398 Americans from Remedy Review, a website that focuses on CBD remedies, found that 9.3 percent of respondents have taken CBD for sexual activities.

Improving Sexual Pleasure

Another potential benefit of CBD oil is its ability to intensify orgasms.

According to a 2019 review paper, CBD led to longer, more satisfying orgasms.

It does this by increasing blood flow to tissues and improving nerve sensation, which can help make sex more pleasurable while intensifying an orgasm.

Reducing Pain During Sex

Dyspareunia (a blanket term for disorders leading to painful sex) is a barrier that keeps upwards of 40% of women from enjoying — or even experiencing — sexual pleasure.

However, some people have found relief by using CBD oil for pain.

According to the National Centers for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), evidence suggests that cannabis or CBD could have modest benefits for chronic pain.

The pain-killing properties of CBD oil have led many to use it to reduce pain during sex.

CBD oil is also known for relaxing the muscles leading to less pain, inflammation, and tension. All of these things could potentially contribute toward alleviating dyspareunia.

An additional 2019 survey conducted by Remedy Review of over 500 adults showed that 98 percent of respondents said CBD helped alleviate pain during sex.

Reduces Stress

Increased stress levels are known to lower a person’s libido.

Indeed, when you are stressed, the last thing you feel like doing is having sex. 

The science confirms this too.

A study published in the journal of sexual medicine showed that the stress hormone cortisol could lower someone’s sex drive.

There are many ways to reduce your stress. For example, relaxation, meditation, and exercise have all been shown to help lower stress levels.

However, if you don’t have time to set aside for extensive relaxation practices, CBD oil has shown promise as part of a de-stress routine.

For example, it can reduce anxiety by triggering serotonin receptors in the brain.

Reducing stress can consequently improve the libido and increase the sex drive.

Deeper Emotional Connection

CBD oil can also deepen your sense of emotional intimacy and connection with other people.

It increases the serum concentration of an endocannabinoid neurotransmitter called anandamide, which is closely associated with oxytocin.

Oxytocin is colloquially known as the “love hormone.” In theory, an increase in anandamide during social contact, including a sexual experience, increases the pleasure of said contact.

Balance Hormones

Another way CBD oil can improve sex is by balancing hormone levels.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) works overall to maintain homeostasis in the body.

This, in turn, helps to regulate the way the organs work and improve the system.

When the hormones are in balance, this can theoretically help to increase the sex drive.
