CBD has been making a lot of headlines as of late, and for good reason. CBD is one of the most beneficial substances you can put in and on your body when it comes to alleviating pain or suffering from debilitating conditions. It has also been found to have many other benefits including lessening anxiety, reducing nausea, enhancing moods, and more!
Dr. Berman has noticed the incredible benefits of CBD for female sexual health, function, and wellness. From her clinical experience, CBD has the ability to improve sexual desire, arousal, pain during intercourse, and can be used to treat irritation in the vagina. Dr. Berman has spoken with a variety of businesses about the development of a CBD line that aids in sexual health, sleep, anxiety, and inflammation.
The Science Behind CBD and Your Sexual Health
The endocannabinoid system, which includes tiny receptors located throughout your body, regulates a variety of functions in your body. These receptors are the locks that the key — in this case, CBD — can unlock. Through CBD’s indirect activation, the body responds in a variety of ways, including as an anti-inflammatory and anticonvulsant.
These anti-inflammatory and anticonvulsant properties lead to relaxation and other sexual benefits including:
- Help with erectile dysfunction- Cannabis sativa, the plant from which marijuana and CBD are derived, has been widely used as an ancient Indian Technique for years to improve ejaculatory function and sexual performance.
- Lubrication- Many CBD manufacturers are adding CBD to their lubricant due to its anti-inflammatory effects, with users finding that it increases lubrication and helps them feel much more relaxed during intercourse.
- Sex Drive- There is a theory that activating the cannabinoid receptor in the brain can help those that suffer from a low sex drive.
