Keep reading to explore the top benefits of CBD for sex, and the research plus real-time reviews that back it.
CBD Benefits for Intimacy
“Getting in the mood” can be easier for some than for others. Especially considering, a number of mental and physical ailments or symptoms can hinder one’s sex drive or general interest in getting intimate. From anxiety to physical pain, to low libido, sometimes our state of health and wellness just isn’t as eager to get frisky under the sheets.
But recently, consumers are finding that hemp and cannabis can help heighten those feelings of arousal, by improving overall well-being. Allowing for both men and women to tap into their inner and natural sexual desires, more comfortably than before.
In fact, a 2018 study reported 68% of participants who consumed cannabis prior to sex reported a more pleasurable experience overall. Summarized by one of the researchers who said, “Consumption of small quantities [of marijuana] prior to sex may increase libido in female patients, which in turn can release positive endorphins and increase vaginal lubrication.”
As research rushes to catch up in proving what everyday consumers are feeling themselves - let’s dive into what we know so far about hemp and CBD effects on sex.
One of the main reasons why CBD is so popular today is for its ability to alleviate anxieties. Which can be helpful for sexual intimacy too. One group of researchers set out to prove this fact with a recent study published in the Culture, Health, and Sexuality Journal. In which the majority of participants who consumed cannabinoids before sex said it helped to “reduce feelings of anxiety and shame, and foster intimacy and connection with sexual partners.”
CBD is a natural vasodilator - a fancy word to describe the act of opening blood vessels and increasing blood flow. With that description alone, you may already understand how CBD can increase sensations and make orgasms that much easier to achieve. And, because CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system and has the ability to “enhance the senses” - experts say it may enhance sexual desires and sensations, due to your sensitivity to touch becoming more “sensitive”.
Overall, when you feel better you can perform better and enjoy sexual intimacy more too. When CBD enters your system, it directly influences, interacts and activates cannabinoid receptors found in your central nervous system that help function and regulate your mood. With CBD, you’re treated to a euphoric, optimal feeling of wellness that’s ideal for enhancing that special type of “mood” for intimacy.
Another system that’s regulated by the endocannabinoid system and thus affected by cannabinoids like CBD, is sexual reproduction. In addition, research has found natural cannabinoid receptors are abundant in areas of the brain that are responsible for sexual functionality, and even the testicles too. Medical experts are now further exploring if the connection may enhance libido, with positive results shown for women specifically thus far.
Relieves pain for comfort
For many, general discomfort or pain can hinder one’s ability to enjoy the good feelings that come along with intimacy. Luckily, two of the most profound CBD effects for general use, are just as effective for sex. CBD is a proven anti-inflammatory agent and analgesic, or pain reliever. Which means the cannabinoid can reduce inflammation, and relieve pain to make you feel more comfortable to connect with your partner.

CBG is another natural hemp plant cannabinoid that has its own unique effects just like CBD. One of those effects being the cannabinoid’s unique ability to strengthening anandamide. Anandamide is a natural physiological neurotransmitter that’s nicknamed in the scientific world as the ‘bliss molecule’.
That’s because it plays a pivotal role in increasing pleasures, motivation and relieving pain. By CBG strengthening the function of anandamide, it’s believed to enhance the feeling of ‘pleasure’ internally, and sexually, too.
