By now you’ve probably heard of CBD and its general purposes - to relieve stress, anxiety, chronic pain and to aid in better sleep. But, did you know it can be incorporated into your sex life? Think about it, when we engage in sexual situations it’s not just our mind that needs to be calm but the rest of our body as well. Have you ever tried to engage in sexual activities when your muscles are tense? No thank you. What about when your mind is moving a mile a minute? Yeah, again, no thank you. CBD allows your mind and body to relax so you can go on a magical journey to a land of pleasure and sexual release. Whether you’re choosing CBD oil or lube, or microdosing CBD orally, it’s got an aphrodisiac quality fit to stimulate your sexual desire. So, read on and let’s explore CBD and the many ways it can be fused with sex.
CBD oil can be used when stimulating various erogenous zones, especially for women. Oils such as Awaken Arousal Oil by Foria that are produced with CBD can aid in alleviating any discomfort felt by the area in which it’s applied, and better yet, can even heighten sexual arousal. For women who experience painful sexual intercourse, whether that be from endometriosis, vaginismus or vaginal dryness (among many others), CBD oil can be used as a way to increase lubrication, libido, and blood flow to the vagina to subsequently ease muscle tension.
So, as CBD oil eases muscle tension to bring all the fiery delight to your sexy bits, it does so because our bodies contain cannabinoid receptors (CBD stands for cannabidiol and is one of the many cannabinoids in cannabis plants) such as the female reproductive tract, for example. These receptors are found from the uterus all the way down to the vulva. When the oil is applied to the vulva women may notice an increase in sexual pleasure and find it easier to reach climax. Foria’s oil can be used where you want but has been made with vulvas in mind. Why not put your vulva at ease (leaving you pleased), and grab yourself a bottle. You're on your way to a sexual reawakening, cannabis assisted.
First things first, if you haven’t already, read sexual wellness educator Gavriel Chichester’s article on performance anxiety and delayed ejaculation in penis owners. They will help you to understand the difference between physical or mental barriers that cause erectile dysfunction (ED). CBD has been said to aid in psychological reasons that may cause ED. By lowering levels of anxiety, stress especially concerning performance, it can make it easier for someone with a penis to establish the brain-to-body connection in order to reach erection.
At the heart of sexual or physical intimacy, is self-intimacy. We have to first be aware of ourselves - our bodies, feelings - before becoming intimate with someone else. If awareness of yourself at an intimate level is something that tends to be difficult for you CBD has the potential to alleviate these barriers. Through the use of CBD you can calm your body and mind and go on a sexploration with yourself to find or increase your sexual connection between you and your beautiful self. Likewise, CBD can help improve sexual and emotional intimacy with your partner. CBD has been said to increase levels of anandamide (a neurotransmitter) which is much like dopamine or serotonin. Anandamide is also known as the ‘bliss molecule’ considering ‘ananda’ means ‘bliss’, ‘joy’, or ‘delight’ in Sanskrit. Basically, the boost of these levels has been said to enhance pleasure in social interactions.
