Exploring the Benefits of CBD for a Healthy Sexual Relationship


    In recent years, a buzz of anecdotes has been shared about CBD’s potential benefits for sexual health & wellness. From reducing stress and increasing libido to improving overall communication and intimacy, CBD products are becoming increasingly popular among couples looking to enhance their sexual relationship. I’ll happily admit I’ve tested this experience on numerous occasions. Let me explain how you can use CBD to benefit your sexual relationship and experiment with your partner.

    Start with taking steps to reduce your stress & anxiety.

    A common reason couples struggle in their sexual relationship is stress and anxiety. Whether it’s work, family life, or other external pressures, stress can wreak havoc on your sexual appetite and sex life if left unchecked. Fortunately, research has shown that CBD products can help reduce stress levels and decrease anxiety—which can help lead some of us to thirst for more enjoyable and intimate moments with our partner.

    Next, try products that can increase libido & performance.

    From personal experience, CBD gummies in high dosages have helped increase my libido and performance during sex. Everyone’s body is different, and understanding which dosage levels work for you comes with time and experimentation. Some people will utilize CBD oil, others CBD beverages, but to each their own in their preferred consumption method. I started at a standard 10mg, then increased to a higher dose between 50mg – 65mg of CBD. This amount has become my sweet spot. Research has shown that CBD can improve blood circulation and allows for increased stimulation in some regions of the body. Additionally, because they don’t interact with hormones like some other treatments do, they can effectively increase arousal without worrying about potential side effects or unwanted changes in libido or performance levels over time.

     In addition, work on improving communication & intimacy.

    Communicating openly and honestly with your partner is essential for maintaining a healthy sexual relationship. Using CBD products before and after sex may help couples talk more freely about what they want from each other in the bedroom. I noticed I became a little bolder in my requests in the bedroom. I have also seen that improvements in communication have created deeper connections and improved our intimacy. The most significant change has come in my improved self-confidence when discussing sex.  

    Using CBD products for your sexual relationship could effectively reduce stress, increase libido and performance, improve communication skills, and foster deeper intimacy with your partner. However, I shall state that I am not a medical professional, and it’s important to speak with your doctor before trying any new supplement, such as CBD, especially if you have any existing medical conditions or concerns about potential interactions with other medications or treatments you’re currently taking. With careful consideration and thoughtful implementation of CBD into your relationship routine, you may find yourself experiencing better sex than ever!
