CBD in Bed: Here's How to Use CBD For Better Sex
Who says you can't mix a little self-care with some fun in the bedroom? CBD has been increasing in popularity in recent years for its calming and relaxing benefits, and now it's time to explore its potential in enhancing intimacy and sexual experiences. Whether you're looking to reduce anxiety, increase sensation or simply enjoy a little extra relaxation, CBD has got you covered.
No matter what you identify as, we've got tips for everyone. Needless to say, there's a lot to cover here. So, let's dive right into the world of CBD, and learn how to use it for better sex - and we'll even throw in some other fun ways to bring more excitement into your sex life. So get ready, it's about to get steamy up in here!
First of All... What is CBD?
We know you're excited, but let's start with the basics. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. But before you jump to any conclusions, no, it won't get you high! Unlike its more infamous cousin THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it won't alter your mind or consciousness.
Now that we've got that straight, let's talk about why people are so hyped about CBD. CBD interacts with your body's endocannabinoid system (yes, you have one of those) increasing your body's ability to stabilize and find balance within your internal environment. This little compound has been making waves for its potential to help with a wide range of health issues, including anxiety, pain, and sleep disorders. Plus, with the increasing legalization of cannabis-derived CBD products, it's now more accessible than ever before.
So there you have it, a quick and simple rundown on what CBD is. Now, let's learn more about how it can enhance your intimate moments!
What are the Effects of CBD on Sex Hormones?
So, what exactly does CBD do to our intimate moments? Well, it's time to get a little science-y. Studies suggest that CBD may have a positive impact on our sex hormones and how they function.
One of the ways CBD may enhance intimacy is by increasing blood flow, and in addition to that, cannabidiol reduces blood pressure. Better blood flow means better and more sensation and, you guessed it, more pleasure! Many people experience erectile dysfunction due to a lack of blood flow. So, since CBD can increase blood flow, it may help things stiffen up down there - which is where we want it (if you have a penis)! If you are experiencing stiffness in other ways, such as due to performance anxiety or a fear of painful sex, CBD can also help to relieve this. We'll get more into that, later.
And for those wondering "does CBD help you last longer in bed?"... it absolutely can, and here's why. CBD's calming effects on the body and mind can help delay climax, leading to a longer and more enjoyable experience for both partners. Hell yeah.
So there you have it. By impacting our hormones and blood flow, CBD has the potential to enhance intimacy and sexual experiences. And we're just getting started! Who knew self-care could be this much fun?
Balancing Hormone Levels = Higher Drive
Okay, let's get real for a sec. We've all had those days when we just can't seem to get in the mood, and that's perfectly normal every once in a while. But what if we told you that CBD may have the ability to balance out your hormones and in turn boost your sexual arousal? That's right - it's time to get more excited for sex!
Studies suggest CBD may play a role in regulating hormone levels, leading to a healthier libido. And we all know what that means - a higher drive and a more fulfilling sex life.
And if that's not enough to convince you, let's not forget about the blood flow factor. As we mentioned earlier, CBD can help improve blood flow, leading to increased sensations and more pleasure. This increase in blood flow is in part due to CBD's anti inflammatory effects.
So, what are you waiting for? Give CBD a try and see if it can help balance your hormones and give your sexual performance a boost. Your partner (and you!) will thank you for it.
Other Ways CBD Can Help Enhance Sex
Okay, so we've talked about how CBD can help balance hormones and boost blood flow for better intimate experiences, but that's not all!
CBD has many health benefits - it seems like more are discovered daily! By improving your overall health and creating more balance within your internal systems, you're bound to feel better. And when we feel good, we are a lot more likely to want to take part in more sexual activities. So let's dive a little deeper (pun intended) into some of the other benefits of using CBD to help improve sexual performance and enhance your intimate encounters.
CBD For Painful Sex
First up, let's talk about CBD as a potential treatment for pain during sexual intercourse. This is a surprisingly common experience for many people, particularly women. We briefly mentioned CBD's anti-inflammatory effects. Anti-inflammation is a form of pain relief, and can help you relax muscles in your body. So, if sex is often times painful for you, taking CBD may be a useful tool in finding more enjoyment and pleasure when having sex.
No matter where you're experiencing pain in your body, it's undoubtedly a distraction to enjoyment. By reducing inflammation and providing pain relief throughout the body, CBD use can help you feel more at ease, comfortable, and confident in the bedroom.
CBD For A Heightened Sex Drive
Yet another benefit of using a CBD product is its potential to perk up a lowered sex drive. CBD can help regulate hormone levels by boosting the efficiency of your endocannabinoid system, leading to a higher drive and a more fulfilling sex life.
And if your lifestyle habits include regular cannabis use, CBD may help mitigate some of the negative side effects of THC, such as decreased sex drive and increased anxiety. As cannabis users, you know of the magic of cannabis plants - don't deny yourself all of the benefits! It's all about balance, and your sexual wellness is important for your overall wellbeing.
CBD to Relieve Performance Anxiety
Research suggests that CBD can be a useful tool in relieving anxiety and reducing stress. This effect allows you to relax and be fully present in the moment. As you reduce stress in the body, you become more able to invite pleasure in to the equation. By taking CBD before engaging in sexual activity, you may reduce anxiety to allow yourself to connect more deeply with your partner, as well as finding more enjoyment during sex.
CBD For Better (& Perhaps More) Orgasms
Oooh yeah, we're talkin' orgasms. We've mentioned that CBD can increase sensation within your body... So, naturally, this extra sensation can contribute to extra intense orgasms. The human body is quite magical, and CBD helps us become more in touch with our bodies, and more connected to physical sensation.
To Wrap This Section Up...
Whether you're looking for pain relief, increased libido, to improve erectile function, or simply to make sex a more enjoyable experience, CBD is a great option to try. So why not see how it can enhance your sex life? Here's how we suggest you start.
What Are the Best Ways To Use CBD For Sex?
Now that we've talked about the potential benefits of CBD for enhancing intimacy, it's time to get into the nitty-gritty of how to actually use it. There are a few different options to choose from, so let's take a look at the best ways to use CBD for sex.
First up, we have topical CBD. Whether in the form of lotions, balms, or oils, applying CBD oil directly to your skin can provide localized relief and increased sensation. CBD oil and CBD balm feel amazing during application, and many are also infused with pleasing scents to help set the mood. Plus, the act of massaging it into your skin can also be a sensual experience in itself.
There are so many incredible CBD products out there, and trying a CBD infused massage oil is a great option for bringing CBD oil benefits into the bedroom. As with any new product, to avoid allergic reaction, be sure to look closely at ingredients, ensure your product is of high quality, and that the CBD is third-party tested.
For those who prefer to take CBD internally, both broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD oils can be effective. Broad spectrum CBD oil provides the benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC, while full spectrum CBD contains all the compounds found in the hemp plant, including THC. Most full spectrum CBD products only contain trace amounts of THC, and are also packed with some of the many other beneficial compounds within the cannabis plant, so we suggest you consider it!
One of the best ways to ingest CBD is through CBD gummies. CBD gummies are a delicious and easy way to get the benefits of CBD. Another reason why CBD gummies are a great choice is because you don't have to worry about figuring out dosage (like you would with a CBD oil). Always choose high-quality products, you and your partner deserve it.
Something to note when ingesting CBD: it takes some time for CBD effects to kick-in! When you take CBD gummies, you won't be hit with instant gratification. We recommend taking your CBD at least 1-2 hours before you plan to get down to business. CBD effects last a long time, however, so feel free to take your CBD up to 4 hours before.
Another option is CBD-infused lubricants. These can add an extra element of pleasure during sexual intercourse, while also helping to reduce pain and discomfort. Just make sure to choose a high-quality lubricant that is compatible with your needs.
Other Ways to Spice Up Your Sex Life
Alright, we've talked about the benefits of CBD for enhancing intimacy, but let's not forget that there are many other fun ways to spice up your sex life too! Get ready to explore some other ways to make your intimate moments even better.
Experiment with Sex Toys
Let's start with a classic: sex toys! Adding a toy or two to your intimate play can bring a whole new level of excitement and pleasure. From vibrators to dildos, there are a variety of options to choose from, so why not experiment and see what works for you and your partner?
Whether you're looking to add extra stimulation during solo play or add some extra excitement to your partnered encounters, using a sex toy can help take your intimacy to new peaks. So go ahead, get creative, and see what works for you!
Try a Lubricant
Let's talk about a crucial aspect of intimacy that often gets overlooked - lubricant! So why use lubricant, you ask? Well, it can help reduce friction and discomfort during sexual intercourse. No one wants to be constantly stopping and starting because of discomfort, right? Plus, it can also help increase sensation and pleasure for both partners.
But be aware - not all lubricants are created equal. It's important to choose a lubricant that is compatible with your needs and the type of sexual activity you're engaging in. For example, if you're using latex condoms, make sure to choose a water-based lubricant to avoid damaging the condom. Lubricants don't necessarily need to be fancy, in fact you may have options already stocked in your kitchen! Both olive oil and coconut oil are frequently used and safe options for down under.
Be Open Minded With Your Partner
One of the keys to a fulfilling and exciting intimate life is open-mindedness. Communication is key, and being open with your partner about your desires, boundaries, and preferences can go a long way in creating a satisfying experience for both of you. Whether it's trying a new position, role play, or incorporating some kink, being open to new experiences can bring a new level of excitement to your sex life.
Of course, it's also important to make sure you and your partner are on the same page and comfortable with any new activities. So don't be afraid to have those conversations, and remember to always respect each other's boundaries.
Here's What we Want You to Keep in Mind
You may be feeling like you would try anything to solve the issues you're experiencing in the bedroom, but if you're already using other medications or have underlying health conditions, we highly recommend that you consult your healthcare provider before taking additional supplements. Everyone's body is different, and your overall health comes first!
Buy a Quality Product
When purchasing a hemp derived CBD product, for the best results, stick to high-quality products with natural ingredients. Always check to make sure your choice is third-party tested and derived naturally and ethically! Bizzy CBD gummies are natural, high-quality, third-party tested, vegan and sustainably packaged - can't beat that!
CBD Compounds in Your Body Over Time
You can definitely experience CBD's benefits on your first use, but the more consistently and frequently you consume/apply CBD, the more noticeable the benefits become. This means if you've been consuming CBD gummies regularly, you can still feel benefits on the days you skip. Yay!

Many people have experienced incredible effects from CBD, such as easement to anxiety disorders, relief from high blood pressure, and even help in reducing seizures! However, we are not your healthcare provider, and we don't claim that CBD will directly treat erectile dysfunction. We are big believers in natural remedies, but that's not to say CBD is the sexual medicine to solve all of your problems.
