Hemp And The Big O -- Is There A Connection?

Did you know that 75% of women don’t climax with intercourse alone and 15% never reach orgasm? Likewise most men will experience some amount of erectile dysfunction in their lifetime with about 52% of all men seeking a little medical assistance in the bedroom. There are a number of factors both physical and mental that contribute to the barriers that stand between you and the Big O. Let’s take a look at how Hemp has the potential to alleviate some of those issues. 

While more research needs to be conducted in order for firm conclusions to be drawn -- a few studies have shown promising results. 75% of participants reported increased drive and desire, heightened sensations, and better, more frequent orgasms in one study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Another study showed that the women involved were twice as likely to achieve satisfying orgasms with the use of cannabis. 

So what is Hemp anyway? Hemp -- short for cannabidiol -- is a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is produced both in plants like hemp and within our bodies’ endocannabinoid system. All animals have an endocannabinoid system that is vital to maintaining homeostasis within the endocrine, immune, and nervous systems.

In terms of sexual satisfaction, our nervous system is responsible for our mood and arousal. The endocrine system controls the hormones that influence our libido, drive, and ability to climax. Even the immune system plays a role in the bedroom -- as it relates to key impediments to good sex like anxiety, irritability, histamine issues, etc. Hemp helps support the endocannabinoid system to keep everything in balance so that you’re healthy and ready for ecstasy. 

Hemp is available in many edible and topical applications. Because our reproductive organs and sexual tissues have a ton of cannabinoid receptors -- Hemp is a no brainer choice for intimate oil. It has been shown to stimulate blood flow and increase nerve sensation to enhance pleasure and intensify orgasms. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation and ease acute chronic pain for those who experience muscle spasms, fibroids, endometriosis or pelvic floor pain. 

Beyond the physical benefits Hemp has shown powerful effects on anxiety across several studies -- which is important because nothing kills the mood like stress, tension, and anxiety! Hemp can help you relax, stay in the moment, and focus on the pleasure. 

While we definitely need more scientific studies to explore the relationship between Hemp and sexual health, doctors who have seen improvements for their patients are optimistic about the possibilities. If you want to try Hemp intimate oil -- make sure you get a high quality product with only pure hemp extract and no harsh additives like the ones from After Dark Essentials. It may be just what you needed to find your Big O!
