Does CBD Makes You Horny?

CBD has been well known for its potential to reduce stress and anxiety, reduce pain, help you sleep better and provide overall calmness. But as research and science are behind on the magical herb benefits, users have been taking it upon themselves to start the conversation:

“Does CBD make anyone else very horny? I’ve been using CBD for a few weeks now and every time I use it I get very horny and my orgasms feel much better as well.” Said a user on Reddit.

“Yes and yes. Improves intimacy with my wife. Very underrated benefit.” Responded another.

And the conversation continued:

“Extremely! It’s better than THC for sex…Less head fog, more blood flow and just all around better”.

“Helps my wife dramatically! Lets her get out of her own head and relax which really helps.”

“I started using CBD oil for PTSD and other issues from a brain injury. I have been horny as hell all day long, every day.”

“Well yes! Think about it! Healthy is horny and horny is healthy. Anxiety and stress release a lot of cortisol. Cortisol crushes testosterone levels so by reducing them you would feel hornier. CBD reduces stress and anxiety so boom! I’ve even used my CBD coconut oil as lube with my laaaady”

This conversation amongst CBD users is not new. The entire industry has been led by user demand more so than medical companies trying to provide healing solutions. It is mostly privately founded by individual believers as science and big Pharma are not rushing to find alternative solutions to the billions of dollars flowing in medical transactions, and it may just be that improved sex life is one of the most underrated benefits of using CBD oil.

In a recent survey conducted by Remedy Review, a website that features research and information related to CBD and other natural remedies, 94% of people reported that they have never used CBD for sexual purposes. However, approximately 64% of the respondents who had tried CBD out in the bedroom said it had improved their sexual experiences.

This awesome “side affect” of CBD actually makes sense:

CBD has been a proven stress reducer….

It can help get you out of your own head, and possibly in the mood.

Millions of people suffer from stress or performance anxiety in the bedroom. Stress and anxiety  are known to put a halt to your sex drive. CBD may help slow down those mood-killing thoughts. In an article n HuffPost Dr. Felice Gersh, a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist based in Irvine, California said “CBD oil can reduce sexual and negative self-images relating to one’s appearance or sexual appeal….Feeling less self-conscious about your body or your performance can help you to relax and enjoy the whole experience.”

That’s because CBD works directly on the body’s endocannabinoid system ― a complex network of receptors in the body that help regulate the nervous system, immune system and the body’s organs. According to Gersh, those receptors, when activated by the body’s own endocannabinoids, can have an anti-anxiety effect on the brain. As it turns out, CBD has the same stress-eradicating properties as endocannabinoids when added to the mix.

CBD can help reduce pain.

There’s another group of receptors in your endocannabinoid system that can reduce pain, Gersh said, making CBD an option for people who experience any sort of acute or chronic pain like muscle spasms, fibroids, endometriosis or pelvic floor pain.

“Topical, whole plant CBD balm can help women experiencing painful sexual intercourse due to vaginal dryness or to irritation at the vaginal opening to have more comfortable and enjoyable sexual experiences,” Gersh said.

Men experiencing issues with erectile dysfunction may also benefit from using CBD, according to Evan Goldstein, an expert in queer sexual health and wellness and founder of Bespoke Surgical, a surgical practice for men based in New York and Los Angeles.

“CBD increases blood flow and nerve sensation, which can help enhance sexual pleasure and intensify orgasms for all parties.” 

Brand and Body Matters…

CBD is likely to affect people differently depending on factors like their sex and body mass index. While it may boost one person’s libido, it may not work for someone else. 

The brand you are using may also be a factor as this reddit user disclosed:

“The first time my wife tried it she couldn’t get enough of me, it was awesome. We tried a different brand but didn’t get the same results.”

CBD ― typically available in oils, edibles and vapes ― is fairly new on the market, and there hasn’t been enough research on it to support any definitive conclusions. Much of what you hear about the compound is purely anecdotal, and more data needs to be collected surrounding CBD in order to fully understand people’s habits around the product and exactly how it works.

But some experts say it couldn’t hurt to try CBD to improve your sex life and other aspects of your well-being. 

Bottom line: There’s still a lot to learn about CBD’s effects on the body. But based on the growing anecdotal, conversations and research evidence, a bit of CBD could be useful when you’re getting down to it.
