CBD for erectile dysfunction – Does it help?
In a man’s sex life, it can happen that not everything goes according to plan during lovemaking and erection problems occur. Often it is the stress of everyday life or the pressure to perform that throws a wrench in the works. CBD has many positive properties and these can help in a natural way, especially with psychological causes of erectile dysfunction.
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction, also known as erectile dysfunction, is when it is not possible to achieve a sufficient and sustained erection of the penis over a long period of time. Erectile dysfunction can occur once or recurrently at any age. They become more frequent with increasing age. If every now and then it just won’t work, that doesn’t mean it’s a disorder. Every now and then, the head just won’t cooperate. However, if erectile dysfunction occurs significantly more often (over a longer period of time), it is important to have the cause clarified by a specialist.
What are possible causes of erectile dysfunction?
In order for an erection to occur, not only must the penile blood flow be correct, but all the nerve pathways involved (from the penis to the spinal cord to the brain) must also be intact.
Erectile dysfunction can have different causes that have a negative impact on erectile function:
- psychological: stress (in everyday life, job, relationship), anxiety disorders, depression,
- chronic diseases: Diabetes, hypertension, obesity, etc.
- side effects due to medication (e.g. psychotropic drugs, etc.)
- Lifestyle: smoking, alcohol abuse, severe obesity, lack of exercise, etc.
- Neurological and vascular: pelvic injury, spinal cord injury, herniated disc, atherosclerosis, etc.
- Endocrine causes: Testosterone deficiency etc.
In younger men, it is increasingly psychological causes that prevent them from having sex or masturbating.
Why CBD for erectile dysfunction?
Different causes can lead to erectile dysfunction. CBD is not a miracle cure and can not make erectile dysfunction disappear just like that. However, the cannabinoid CBD has many properties that can make a positive contribution.
Every human being has a so-called endocannabinoid system in the body. It is confirmed that the endocannabinoid system reacts to sexual activities and can bring positive effects. CBD is said to have a relaxing and stress-reducing ability. Stress and anxiety are true erection inhibitors. Cortisol is released by stress (strain) and in turn inhibits the effect of testosterone. If erectile dysfunction occurs due to too much stress, CBD can help you reduce stress. If it has not worked once, the fear of failing the next time is also great. Here, too, CBD can be a natural support to counteract performance pressure and fear of failure.
There are studies that have found that CBD has a positive effect on high blood pressure. The blood vessels are relaxed and the blood flow increases. This in turn leads to a reduction in blood pressure. As mentioned above, too high blood pressure can also lead to erectile dysfunction.
In the blog article “Can CBD increase sex drive?” we have already explained that cannabidiol can help during lovemaking. Cannabinoid receptors are not only located in the head, but also in the genitals. As soon as these come into contact with CBD, they boost blood circulation, which in turn enhances sensitivity and sensation. So the increased sensitivity can increase your pleasure/excitement. Testimonials also show that CBD has a vasodilatory effect, which in turn has positive effects on erectile function.
So just for psychological causes such as stress, etc. CBD products can definitely help. For more complicated causes, as well as when erectile dysfunction occurs frequently, a medical consultation and treatment is important. If medications are taken, it is basically necessary that the additional intake of CBD is clarified.
Which CBD products are suitable?
Basically, it always depends on you and which intake you prefer. If you are looking for a CBD product that will help you directly, then we recommend our CBDeus range. The CBDeus products contain water-soluble CBD and are absorbed by the body much faster and better than normal CBD oils. Our CBD Gummies have a similarly fast effect. In addition, their intake method is simple and uncomplicated.
But if you’re looking for a product that you can routinely take over a longer period of time, our CBD oils with the Full Spectrum formulation are perfect for you. They can help you manage stress better and find peace of mind more easily in the long run.
What additionally can’t hurt is a balanced diet, enough exercise, no alcohol, no smoking and plenty of relaxation.
