Any documented side effects we should be aware of?
There is really interesting research coming out about the wide range of benefits people are experiencing from CBD – from the relief of postpartum depression to helping support some of the less comfortable side effects of menopause, alongside menstrual cramps and other painful pelvic conditions.
You have probably seen CBD in all sorts of muscle and pain products by now. That is because CBD is both anti-inflammatory and helps decrease muscle tension. When it comes to the pelvic floor, people can often carry tension that they are unaware of, either from postural habits, injuries, sexual trauma, or scar tissue from childbirth to name a few. Pain is another very common issue we see with females (about 3 out of 4 females experience painful penetration at some point) — hormonal shifts (like menopause and postpartum), imbalances (like endometriosis and PCOS), and other issues like vulvodynia and vaginismus can all contribute to pain or tension in the pelvis — which often leads to painful sex. CBD can support all of these by decreasing muscle tension and decreasing inflammation. The benefit here is that the less tension and restriction in the pelvis, the more blood flow you’ll have- which can lead to heightened arousal and access to pleasure.

THC has that upfront ‘wow’ factor that really surprises people, so we used other botanicals in Awaken to round out CBD’s effects.
Can CBD help with men’s sexual health too?
Since CBD is currently having a moment in the spotlight of wellness trends, it really should come as no surprise. As more people tap into its healing properties to help decrease inflammation, support optimal gut health, relieve anxiety, calm our pet’s anxiety, clear up our skin, improve sleep, help us focus, etc., it was only a matter of time before it made its debut into bedrooms across the country.
Arousal is the physical process of blood flowing to the genitals, it is also what allows penetration to feel good. CBD is considered a vasodilator which means it increases blood flow to the blood vessels. When CBD is applied topically to the absorbent tissues of the vulva and vagina, it *may* support the body’s arousal capacity by increasing blood flow to the genitals. (We say *may* because no one has done a study yet on female arousal and cannabis applied to the genitals, but based on years of solid customer feedback we are pretty confident that CBD is an excellent tool to support your arousal.)
Atherosclerosis is the medical term for clogged arteries. This condition impairs circulation by restricting blood flow. As fat and cholesterol build up in your arteries, they provoke inflammatory responses that only compound the problem. CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Before you buy CBD oil for erectile problems, keep in mind that not all products are created equal. If you want to deal with your ED symptoms and get your sex life back on track, you need high-quality CBD. When in doubt, check the ingredients list on the packaging and the manufacturer’s website.

If you’re looking for help with erectile dysfunction, turn to natural supplements first. CBD doesn’t have a long list of adverse side effects, as pharmaceutical medications do. Instead, it can help you manage your erectile issues the natural way.
Reducing inflammation in your blood vessels can improve circulation, helping to combat the effects of atherosclerosis. If your ED results from restricted blood flow to your penis, improved circulation can help get your sex life back on track.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a phytochemical found in cannabis plants. Recent research into this popular herbal supplement has shown that it has a lot of therapeutic promise.
Ayurveda practitioners have been using cannabis to reduce the symptoms of ED for millennia. It’s only within the past few years that Western holistic medical experts have seen the light. As a result, the research into how CBD can help with ED is still in its infancy.
