CBD Oil & Your Sex Life
While CBD is relatively new in the market and much more research is needed to be done in the Sex arena. We can talk about how Hemp CBD can impact one’s body, which in turn can lead to positive results in the bedroom.
For example, gasoline alone does not make a car run. You need a driver, an engine, wheels, etc. Similarly, CBD alone is not going to make you suddenly wake the neighbors from the bedroom. However, with a proper dosage plan, along with a better diet and some sort of exercise plan, CBD can help you and your body function work more efficient and at optimal levels, that includes a better libido, like when you were younger. Giggidy!
In this article, we will talk about CBD in the Bedroom, How CBD actually works (indirectly and directly), some examples and statistics, and lastly some concluding remarks and the Six Ways it can help in the Bedroom.
CBD IN THE BEDROOM
CBD can work indirectly in the bedroom, and to a lesser degree directly. It’s really how you want to see it. For example, if you are struggling with anxiety, stress, or pain, the last thing on your mind is probably having sex.
So in this instance, CBD is working indirectly. If you are having no discomfort issues and not as stressed out and in a better mood, then naturally you are going to feel more secure as a man or woman and more likely to engage in intimate experiences.
Similar to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. If you feel that your “basic needs” i.e. physiological and safety needs, are being met. Then you will typically move up the ladder to more intimate and loving needs.
On the other hand, CBD can work directly in the bedroom via personal lubricants, massage oils, or edibles.
Many couples use multiple forms of CBD to have a romantic night in. Whether it is a romantic bath for two, utilizing CBD bath bombs to unwind from a stressful day, followed by some CBD Beauty skincare topicals or CBD face masks to reinvigorate the spirit.
And/Or whether it is incorporating some CBD Oil with cooking for an amorous dinner for two, or a flavored CBD Oil mixed into a dessert. All these forms of foreplay will typically result in better lovemaking.
Whatever the Love plan is, they are all great for reducing stress, encouraging relaxation, and hence building intimacy with you and your significant other. More importantly, what makes this so beneficial, is that all of these nutrient-rich hemp products are actually great for your body and mind.
HOW CBD WORKS
CBD Oil works within your Endocannabinoid System or ECS to help your body’s homeostasis functions work at optimal levels. The ECS is made up of primarily two receptors CB1 and CB2 and are responsible for numerous bodily functions such as pain, mood, sleep, and appetite.
I.E. You have a fever and begin to sweat to cool down, that is your ECS at work.
These receptor sites are located all throughout your body including your reproductive organs. Further, CBD does not bind to these cells, but acts like a doorway, by activating or inhibiting other compounds and receptors.
For Example, one customer mentioned that taking cbd for a bad back didn’t do much for his sex life and wasn’t even on the radar for that. However, when he added an herbal testosterone supplement to his daily regimen he soon saw the advantages.
As he had taken this supplement before, but did not notice the benefits until it was combined with CBD. So in this instance, CBD was waiting for something it could use that would be beneficial to the user. Now with CBD in his system, he once again started taking an herbal testosterone supplement and the change was noticeable.
According to Remedy Review, out of 1,000 people surveyed, 68% of people said CBD improved their sex lives. Still, most people have not even thought of CBD regarding sex. In the same study 94% of people didn’t even think of trying CBD as an option regarding sexual health.
According to Webmd 43% of women and 31% of men have reported some sort of sexual dysfunction, and as we all know many will not discuss this issue, so it is likely the numbers are higher. Whether it started from physical or psychological issues, one tends to beget the other eventually.
Anecdotal Example – One CBD user told us that he had an erectile dysfunction experience one night attributed to stress and muscle soreness. However, the consequence of that one night mentally and emotionally stayed with him for years afterward.
So the stress/soreness was the initial cause, but the mental and emotional result lasted for years, similar to PTSD. Further, when he started on a CBD regimen, which allowed him to regain his confidence and lowered his stress levels, while elevating his mood, he felt like he was back to his old self in and out of the bedroom.
CBD FOR THE BED
- Sense of Calmness and Better Mood
- Dilating the Blood Vessels allowing an increase in oxygen and blood flow
- Reduce discomfort issues in women experiencing pms or menopause
- Reducing Performance Anxiety, especially in Men
- Giving your ECS Receptors the nutrients they need esp. in the reproductive organs to function at their optimal levels
- Increase blood flow and sensation to Key receptors in the female reproductive organs
To sum up, the use of CBD can help directly in the bedroom by allowing nutrient-rich phytocannabinoids to help your ECS in your reproductive organs, but much more research needs to be done in this area. However, we can say that many have experience better sex because of the indirect use of CBD products outside of the bedroom.
Moreover, by lowering discomfort issues, pms symptoms, stress, and elevating your mood and sense of calmness, one typically moves up the ladder to more intimate actions.
Remember, most things in life are related in and out of the bedroom. I.E. you feel better about yourself or you are not in pain, then one is more likely to be receptive to being intimate with their partner or self lol.

CBD Oil and Exercise
In this Article we will discuss how CBD Oil can affect Exercise on the whole. Also, we will discuss CBD Benefits and side effects. Further, we will talk about some Cannabis related definitions, i.e. CBD, THC, and ECS. Also, how CBD works within the body for a pre-workout or post-workout recovery.
We all know that physical exercise has numerous benefits for overall health and wellness. From reducing obesity to heart health, as well as improving mood and reducing stress.
So many people are asking can CBD help my workout routine? The answer is YES!
Many weekend warriors, celebrities, and professional athletes are now turning to CBD for a wide variety of issues in regards to physical fitness. Including discomfort, strains, soreness, a better night’s sleep, and a speedy recovery from a tough workout.
However, there still needs to be a lot of education on the subject. Some still think CBD is “Weed” and will hurt your body, or by no means be beneficial. So why would you take it for exercise if it will take away from your overall health. Nothing could be further from the truth.
First, we need to talk about what/how CBD and THC are different.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol. It is one of 113 or so chemicals extracted from the Hemp Plant when it is processed. These chemicals are called phytocannabinoids. CBD is the most abundant of these nutrients in the plant, comprising roughly 30-40%. Another well known cannabinoid is THC Tetrahydrocannabinol. The cannabinoid that gives the user a euphoric “high” like that found in Marijuana.
More Importantly, this is where the confusion lies between these two. On one hand, CBD Oil made from Hemp will never get you high or any mind-altering issues. Industrial Hemp is bred to have very low THC levels. 0.3% or less for it to be legal for commerce. Moreover, most reputable brands will even filter out this tiny amount to make a CBD Oil that is completely THC-Free.
On the other hand, the Marijuana Plant is bred for high levels of THC and low levels of CBD. Essentially, both plants are the complete opposite of one another regarding CBD and THC. But because CBD can come from the same plant family as THC “Cannabis Sativa” much confusion remains. CBD and THC are Apples and Oranges so to speak.
WHAT NUTRIENTS ARE IN THE HEMP PLANT?
The Hemp Plant contains many other valuable minerals, vitamins, terpenes, proteins, phytosterols, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenols, antioxidants, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids.
- Hemp contains iron, zinc, carotene, vitamins B1/B2/B6/D/E,
- Calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper, potassium, phosphorus
- Amino acids, and heart healthy omegas.
- Also is a great protein source.
- Making Hemp a “Treasure Chest” of Nutrients
Essentially, the Hemp Plant is like a nutrient-rich multivitamin.
HOW DOES THE ECS WORK?
The ECS or Endocannabinoid System was recently discovered a few decades ago, this system has receptor sites called CB1 and CB2. These lie all throughout your body including your brain, your organs, and your immune system. This system is responsible for your body’s homeostasis (balanced health) levels. It works to signal other cells to maintain life.
Like the old-fashion switchboard operators of the past connecting a phone call, these cells receive and translate what is going on within the body to keep you alive. I.E. your running a fever, so you start to perspire, that is the ECS at work.
The ECS is responsible for appetite, body temperature, inflammation, digestion, and motor function, among others.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
CBD Oil works within the ECS by utilizing or reacting to the receptor sites. Either the phytocannabinoids from the Hemp plant, which is what CBD is, or your body’s own produced endocannabinoids.
Many people don’t know that your body actually produces its own cannabinoids or what we call Endocannabinoids.
Moreover, what is so amazing about Hemp CBD, is that it mimics these naturally producing cannabinoids so well that your body can function at optimal levels. Being from a natural plant source, your body welcomes the CBD, as oppose to a synthetic drug that has your body go into fixer mode, and then to be broken down and filtered through your liver and kidneys. Causing these organs to be burdened and work overtime.
Even over the counter “harmless” medications like Acetaminophen burden and tax the liver, while leaving behind trace amounts of synthetic molecules. While many prescribed medications do the same, many are not aware that these medications will also rob you of other vital nutrients. In essence, your alleviating one condition for a future condition to come.
Robbing Peter to pay Paul!
More importantly, each cannabinoid has a different structure, which in turn will cause a different result when they interact within the Endocannabinoid System. Essentially, Hemp CBD acts both like a lock and key. Taking CBD might cause an immediate effect, such as discomfort relief (The Key) to a receptor site in your knee or back. Whereas, another might block or shut off appetite receptors so you don’t have the urge to overeat (The Lock).
- CBD is not a performing-enhancing substance, such as steroids or stimulants.
- Preliminary Research suggest that in some users it will lower stress and relax blood vessels. In large amounts it might make the user a bit drowsy. Not the best for a pre-workout regime.
- CBD topicals are great for any time, many use them before exercising for targeted relief.
- Ingestible CBD is best for post-workout recovery, mood enhancement, as well as a restful night’s sleep.
- CBD helps your body’s ECS function at optimal levels, as you once did when you were younger.
- CBD is nutrient-rich to supplement anyone’s diet and any exercise regimen.

CBD Oil & Senior Citizens
(We advise to speak with your Primary Healthcare Professional before using CBD Oil)
According to a Gallup Poll 1 in 5 Americans over the age of 50 uses some sort of CBD Product, and this is growing. However, being largely a self-regulated industry thus far, we want to discuss what issues Seniors face with taking CBD.
More Importantly, In this Article we will discuss how a daily regimen of CBD can help for a better quality of life for senior citizens. Also, What Seniors need to be aware of when taking CBD Oil; i.e. the benefits and side effects of CBD. Also, what the top four things to look for when choosing a reputable CBD Brand. As well as other pertinent information regarding all things CBD.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol. This is the name for one component that is extracted from the Hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa) when it is processed. These are called Cannabinoids, and to date there are approximately 113 Cannabinoids that have been identified in the Hemp Plant; THC is another well-known Cannabinoid, this is what gives the user a “high” like that in marijuana.
In Contrast, Hemp plants are bred for low THC levels. For industrial Hemp use, and for it to be legal in America, Hemp CBD has to contain 0.3% or less of THC. So all hemp extracted cbd oil will not give you a “high”. Moreover, reputable brands will strain out even this tiny amount of THC to make all of their products completely THC Free. So no need to worry about some mind-altering substance going into your body.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN PURCHASING A GENUINE CBD PRODUCT
Thus far, CBD is unregulated by the FDA, and because of this there is a lot of counterfeit brands out there. These companies will import their oil from China or Russia, usually through alibaba.com. These Companies even have less regulations in making their CBD Oil so who knows what you are getting. Moreover, this form of CBD is usually not organic nor do they have any independent lab tests. These are awful companies just trying to make a fast buck, while making outrageous claims.
Further, the costs involve with organic farming methods and independent lab testing make it near impossible to have such cheap oil. Numerous independent testing of brands have been done around America, and many times there was no cbd to even be found in the product!
The Top Four Things to Look For
- Made in the U.S.A. & Organic Hemp. Hemp acts like a sponge, it will soak up everything in the ground water and soil. If it isn’t organic then all these metals and pesticides are going into you.
- Independent Lab Results. These Lab Results should be easily attainable and viewable on any reputable CBD Companies website. These will show what is and what isn’t in the Oil.
- What is on the Label. Make sure it says “CBD” or “Hemp Extract”. Most companies will use “Hemp Extract” to be able to sell online and for advertising purposes. If it says anything else like “Hempseed” it most likely does not contain any CBD. The seeds of the Hemp plant have vitamins and omegas, which are good for you, but no CBD.
- Price Point. To a slightly lesser degree, but still important. For example, If you see on Amazon a 300,000 Unit or MG bottle for $19.99 it is from China or Russia. Stay Away! These Companies outright lie. These brands will put large numbers on their bottles to entice the consumer, but they mean absolutely nothing. Furthermore, they will lie about being made in America.
Typical figures range from $30.00 to $200.00 for 250mg to 2000mg bottles of CBD that is U.S. Organically Farmed and Lab Certified. Remember, you only get what you pay for.
THE LIFE OUT OF YOU
Today, our bodies are inundated with air pollution, outside and inside. GMO and processed food, bad tap water, chemicals we use to clean our homes and ourselves, antibiotics and synthetic drugs, and the list goes on and on.
Subsequently, over time, these all wreak havoc on our internal organs. Your liver and kidneys have to work overtime to cleanse all these pollutants from your body.
As we age this “cleansing” becomes harder and harder to do. All these contaminants leave behind trace amounts of toxins and pollutants, until one day your body gets to a tipping point and starts to break down and a terminal issue arises.
This is where CBD comes in. By working with your Endocannabinoid System ECS, which all mammals have (you and mr. marbles). CBD helps to awaken or re-activate your ECS to perform all of it’s homeostasis functions as it once did when you were younger.
- Discomfort Issues
- Bone/Mood Wellness
- Soothing Effects/Energy Promotion
- Sleep/Mood Issues
- Natural Alternative to Synthetic Meds
- Appetite Stimulation
- Can affect the metabolism of a certain class of statins/drugs (always consult with your Dr. prior to using CBD)
- Too much at one time can cause drowsiness (always best to start small and build up)
- Side Effects using CBD are rare, and for the overwhelming majority of users they will have none. However, some anecdotal reports have been a drop in blood pressure for a short time after ingesting cbd, dry mouth, and nausea. It is not known if these people were on other drugs or had underlying conditions.
If you are reading this then you are still alive! That is the good part, it is never too late to change. With CBD you are not only getting all the valuable cannabinoids, but many don’t know that the Hemp plant is full of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, and heart healthy omegas.
Remember, everything in life is related, when one gets on a CBD regimen for wellness, they tend to start looking at other neglected areas of their lives, i.e. exercise, eating habits, spirituality.
For Example, most people who start exercising typically do not finish a workout then go to a fast food restaurant. More often, they will have a protein shake or eat a salad or some other sensible meal. The same goes for starting on a CBD regimen.
Once you start with CBD it hopefully will kick start some other areas of life you have neglected, and as the days go by you will slowly transform yourself back to the best version of you!
We advise to get on some sort of exercise plan. Try to eat organically as much as possible, and replace meat and dairy with a plant-based diet. More importantly, by adding an Organic Full Spectrum CBD oil with all of its valuable nutrients, one will be on their way back to overall health and wellness.
