Cannabidiol: Natural and Healthy Viagra from the Hemp Plant

Updated: May 20, 2022


For a long time, researchers have been studying the relationship between cannabis and libido. Several studies have obtained significant results, especially concerning cannabidiol (CBD), the substance found in cannabis that seems to play an active role in increasing sexual desire.




For thousands of years, individuals have used cannabis to treat many diseases. With modern medicine's tremendous progress, scientists have been able to study the relationship between sex and hemp, specifically of cannabidiol oil, which some describe as the "natural Viagra."


In a recent study, researchers found that men and women who ingest cannabis daily have 20% more sexual intercourse than those who abstained from consuming. Dr. Michael Eisenberg, a professor in the Department of Urology at Stanford University, commented: "Usually, people assume that the more cannabis you smoke, the worse sex is, but it turns out to be just the opposite."


Why is that? Dr. Eisenber explains that "those who use cannabis can have more sex because they reduce the pressure on themselves; therefore, these individuals do not suffer from sexual performance anxiety like others."


Cannabis and Sex


Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the active compounds found in the hemp plant. Even though it does not have side effects like other hemp substances, this compound has anxiolytic effects, especially those related to sexual anxiety. As an anxiolytic, it naturally relieves stress and tension before intimacy by activating serotonin receptors in the brain, it floods the body and mind with antidepressants, preventing the brain from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation, fear, and stress, thus helping to increase blood flow in the body.


CBD can increase intimacy between people by reducing stress and pain, and maintaining calmness and mental clarity, separating it from other cannabis derivatives. Cannabidiol improves a person's sense of self, body, and environment, some people even admit that the sexual experience improves with stronger orgasms. CBD offers multiple benefits in sexual life, all without generating side effects on the individual's health or psyche.
