What’s the influence of CBD oil on sexual health?
One of the most interesting experiments being conducted. The industry isolates CBD and adds it to a range of products including those that can help couples in their intimate moments, such as lubricants and compounds that boost libido.
The use of marijuana to enhance the sexual experience is not new. Women in ancient Egypt applied honey with an infusion of cannabis to their genitals. Some Hindus believed in the afrodisiac power of a cannabis infusion called bhang lassi.
In a 2009 scientific study, published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, endocannabinoid receptors were found in reproductive organs such as the testes. It is important to remember that endocannabinoid receptors are also found in the human brain, in both men and women.
However, there are studies that contradict each other. Some indicate an increase in libido when CBD and/or THC is taken, while others indicate no change in libido after using the same doses. One of the scientific articles from the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics reports a decrease in desire in men who are chronic cannabis users.
On the other hand, other studies show that using products with CBD can increase libido and reduce anxiety. Some people get anxious about their performance, which can reduce desire and arousal. The relief of anxiety through CBD could make these people want sexual relations more often.
Therefore no use should be considered without a doctor’s recommendation. Anxiety and impotence are problems that should be treated with doctors in the first place, and based on analysis and examination the right treatment can be indicated. Some medications, instead of helping the patient, can cause the opposite effect.
