Happy Friday and weekend y’all.
If you are here, I am assuming you saw my post on social media and were curious to learn a bit more about CBD & SEX. Or are you just a regular getting your daily CannaBoss mom fix? Either way, I am glad you are here.
For the past two years, I’ve been boasting about the many physical and mental health benefits of CBD. From stress and anxiety-relief to muscle relaxation, you’re probably familiar with the basics by now. But on this “freaky Friday”, I an here to talk about something different… CBD for sex! As it turns out, on top of everything else, cannabidiol aka CBD, could work wonders in the bedroom.
If you are ready to get a little more intimate with the potential benefits of CBD for sex, continue on!
As you know, there isn’t a ton of concrete answers as CBD is still in the infant states, but there is a ton of research in the works right now that might provide us with better answers when it comes to CBD oil and the libido in the near future.
Here are some of the latest theories about CBD’s effect on sex drive:
Does CBD Oil Improve Libido?
Less Stress, More Sex
High levels of the stress hormone, known as Cortisol, have been proven to lower your sex drive and get in the way of intimate activities. CBD oil’s magical ability to make stress melt away can have a positive impact in the bedroom by dropping Cortisol levels and helping you relax before the act. For many, anxiety and stress tend to play a role in sex; CBD can help ease some of that stage fright, getting rid of any mental blocks potentially getting in the way.
The Science of CBD for Sex
Extensive studies have shown a close relationship between CBD and the ECS (Endocannabinoid System). I won’t get into the nitty gritty of this super complex network, but one of its functions is to regulate hormone health. Essentially, we have ECS receptors throughout our bodies (including our sexual organs) that CBD binds to. This bind helps balance hormones, which ultimately leads to an increased libido.
While we’re on the topic of sex science, CBD also works by increasing our body’s production of a chemical called anandamide, which helps release Oxytocin aka the “love hormone”. These elevated levels tend to have a positive effect on all social interactions, including sexual encounters.
Pain-Free with CBD
Unfortunately for many women, painful sex can ultimately be an issue in the bedroom. Another awesome benefit of CBD, is its pain-relieving properties. Turns out using CBD can not only provide you with the pain-relief, but it can increase blood flow and more relaxed muscles, which is a pretty great combo for improving sexual activities.
CBD as a Lubricant?
Can you use CBD as a lube? Absolutely! Just make sure you aren’t using cinnamon or a flavor that might cause a reaction down there. Another added benefit of CBD for sex is that it can act as a lubricant between the sheets. Not only is it an all-natural alternative to chemical-based lubes, but CBD also has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, which could make sex more comfortable for both parties.
I haven’t read anything or come across a product that is “best CBD oil for the libido,” so feel free to use any CBD oil on its own or try adding a couple of drops to your favorite lube.

While early research has CBD enthusiasts like me excited about its potential for health and sexuality, “experts” say more studies are needed before any firm conclusions can be drawn.
In the meantime, do you own research between the sheets with CBD and let me know any conclusions.
