Not everyone is secure in themselves in all aspects of life, and our intimate lives is no exception.
Cannabis and hemp just might be the answer to your needs. It can increase sexual health by making the process better for both you and your partner. It will relax you, reduce pain, make you more confident, and may even do away with erectile dysfunction.
Both THC and CBD have the ability to do these things for us at different levels, so you have to decide which one is the best. It might be a little difficult to decide, so here are a few things about what both do, their different effects, and how one may be better than the other for your situation.
Many people in America have some form of anxiety, which doesn't exist only in the bedroom. Anxiety is infamous for affecting your sex drive and performance, and this may put a bit of a strain on your relationship.
A therapist can help you through this, but if you are looking to get over it quickly, or you can't afford a doctor's fees, cannabidnoids like THC or CBD can be a cost effective alternative.
Large amounts of anxiety can also put a damper on your confidence. However, CBD oil can help you feel more excited about sex. It can help to lower your inhibitions and cause you to actually act when you normally would be hesitant. By helping to create new neural pathways, your new found confidence is more likely to stick as a part of your behavior.
When you're more excited then you will give off an aura of confidence. This confidence will help you enjoy yourself more with your partner, which will make the experience more enjoyable for both of you.
There are many cases where women feel large amounts of pain during sex. One of the reasons for this is menopause. It'll cause some uncomfortable and unwanted friction due to dryness.
The oil can increase blood flow which also heightens lubrication and cuts down on pain and inflammation. Also, when you're able to relax, that can decrease the pain in itself.
THC and CBD can help those with chronic pain, so it can help with your sexual health as well.
CBD and THC fight the biggest causes of erectile dysfunction. They flush dioxins and kick your hormone production into high gear, as well as give your endocannabinoid system (ECS) a boost. The ECS plays a major role in our reproductive system, possibly playing roles in spermatogenesis.
Again, it also helps with depression and anxiety which is the other big player in erectile dysfunction. So the regular use of CBD or THC can decrease depression and up your performance in the bedroom.
Couples who use cannabis products can actually increase the intensity of feelings in the bedroom. You may even experience more orgasms than ever.
Not only will you have more, they'll be even more intense, last a lot longer, and it will also lead to longer endurance. This will allow you to drop your guard and have more fun.
Viagra has side effects that THC and CBD don't have. You could get a headache, suffer insomnia, and might experience some pain. If you use CBD and THC, those are side effects that you won't have to worry about it.
CBD and THC also push you along in a much more natural way, while Viagra just makes the penis erect without any actual arousal through manipulation of the blood vessels. And with Viagra, you have the possibility of suffering the agony of a four-hour erection, after which it is recommended that one contact an emergency physician for draining. That's not exactly healthy for your body, or your mind.
Both CBD and THC have their benefits but CBD doesn't have as many psychoactive properties. THC can sometimes cause more harm to your sexual health than good.
THC affects women a little differently. It will trigger a few withdraw symptoms and may even cause some short term memory loss. Too much can cause less interest in sex than more. Depending on how much you have, if you're a woman you might not have as much fun. Though each person is different.
Sometimes with men, THC will give you a huge boost to your libido in the beginning and then, you'll start to lose interest after a bit as your body adjusts to the presence of the cannabinoid, and also adjusts glucose levels in your system.
THC also has a few side effects that CBD doesn't. THC can make you feel anxious or antsy which is the opposite of what you want in bed. If you're really sensitive to THC you might want to get a product that's free of it.
THC can make all the feelings that you experience way more intense than CBD can due to it's psychoactive effects. It can also do a better job of loosening up your mind.
THC can make your body more sensitive while also easing stress, putting an end to erectile dysfunctions, and basically do some things that CBD can.
Out of the two, it does seem like THC has way more side effects that can be perceived by some as negative. You get to judge if the heightening experience of THC is worth it. If you aren't sure how sensitive you are to it, there is no harm to giving it a try.
Deciding between THC or CBD is tough, as both are great choices. It all depends on how sensitive you are to THC.
If you don't react to it well, it can cause more anxiety in the bedroom which is what you're trying to avoid. CBD and THC can help you lower your inhibitions and let yourself actually have fun and enjoy your time with your partner. Bring passion back into your bedroom!

If you take CBD oil, or you're planning to take CBD oil, it is beneficial to have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the endocannabinoid system. Don't worry, we won't take you too far down the rabbit hole! We just want to provide an introduction to this topic so you'll be able to comprehend better how CBD and other cannabinoids can have a powerful effect on your body.
Just like your immune system, your endocannabinoid system consists of several parts spread throughout your body. These different parts work in a coordinated way through chemical signaling. Mainly, this system consists of different kinds of receptors located on cell membranes and the signaling molecules, called endocannabinoids, that interact with these receptors. There are also specific enzymes involved in creating the signaling molecules when your body has a need for them and destroying them when their job is done.
There are two related but distinct types of receptors that have been conclusively identified in the endocannabinoid system. One is called the cannabinoid receptor type 1, abbreviated as CB1. The other is called the cannabinoid receptor type 2, abbreviated as CB2. There are also several other receptors on cell membranes that are structurally similar, functionally similar, and when cloned, have similar gene sequences. These are sometimes called "orphan receptors" because they have not yet been "adopted" by scientists as an official type of cannabinoid receptor. However, they are strongly suspected to be cannabinoid receptors and will likely be named as such over the next few years.
There are a variety of signaling molecules (endocannabinoids), including the very well known AEA and 2-AG, also known as anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol respectively. While these signaling molecules are produced inside the human body, there are similar molecules, called cannabinoids, in the oil of the cannabis plant that mimic them. Specifically, THC mimics AEA and CBD mimics 2-AG. Note the distinction: endocannabinoids are cannibinoids that are produced inside the body while cannabinoids are similar molecules found in cannabis oil.
The receptors that 2-AG is capable of binding with, the CBD in CBD oil can also bind with and produce a very similar effect. This is a key fact to know. Other cannabinoids found in CBD oil can also bind with with receptors in the endocannabinoid system.
When CB1 receptors were first discovered, it was thought to be strictly associated with the nervous system, i.e. the brain, spine, and all the radiating nerves. However, it was later discovered that CB1 receptors are also quite numerous in the sexual organs in both men and women. CB1 receptors were also discovered on the cell membranes of the cells in many other organs such as the liver and the heart. Thus, although you may read that CB1 receptors are in the nervous system, that has turned out to not be the whole truth as more research has been done.
The CB2 receptors were originally thought to be only associated with the immune system. While it is true there is a high concentration of CB2 receptors throughout the whole immune system, especially in the spleen, it has now been discovered that they exist in many other parts of the body as well. It's also true that you won't find as many CB2 receptors in the brain or along other parts of the nervous system as you find CB1 receptors. However, you will find some CB2 receptors in the nervous system, just as you'll find some CB1 receptors in the immune system, although the immune system is dominated by CB2 receptors.
As more research has come, the original impression about how this all works have become fuzzier. Originally, it was thought that THC and anandamide only interacted with CB1 receptors. This has now been shown to be false. While these signaling molecules do interact much more with CB1 receptors, they can also interact with CB2 receptors to some degree. They may also interact with orphan receptors. It was also thought that CBD and 2-AG only interacted with CB2 receptors. While they more frequently interact with CB2 receptors, they also interact with with CB1 receptors to some degree. It's also true that you'll sometimes see CB1 and CB2 receptors located in the same organ and even on the same cell!
As more research comes out about the endocannabinoid system, it is becoming increasingly clear that this system affects all other systems in the body. In fact, it would be fair to say that the endocannabinoid system controls the other systems by turning certain chemical pathways on and off, by instructing cells to grow or differentiate into more specialized cells, by releasing or decreasing certain hormones, and by actually controlling what genes in your DNA are expressed at any given time. The endocannabinoid system actually has the power to turn nerve pathways on and off or instruct the immune system on which type of cells to release and when.
Cannabinoids from cannabis are being researched for many diseases. Here are just a few examples. Some research has already demonstrated that cannabinoids can interact with the endocannabinoid system and alter unhealthy cell growth! There is a very high concentration of endocannabinoid system receptors on the insulin producing cells in the pancreatic which has led to research that shows great promise for diabetics. By interacting with the receptors in the immune system, cannabinoids in CBD oil may able to help your body regulate its inflammatory response.
Due to draconian cannabis laws, the United States lags woefully behind other countries in cannabis research, especially with regard to their potential usefulness is treating disease. The two nations that are leading the way on cannabis research are Israel and Australia. Both of these countries have well funded cannabis research programs. Thus, we can expect some of the best research to come out of these two countries over the next decade.
