How CBD + conscious cannabis consumption can help women feel our best in the bedroom with the big O’s included…every time.
Raise your hand if you need an orgasm right about now. The ‘big O’, AKA a new way we can all take some pleasure out of this lockdown we’ve found ourselves in (might as well get it on while we’re inside). We all want it, and we all seek to feel that release with every sexual encounter we get ourselves involved in. Who doesn’t want to feel luscious, juiced up, and hitting climax every time we get intimate (whether with ourselves or with another + a little CBD to relax). It is of major, major importance that we try to keep it cool during this global pandemic, and if sex can be a part of my quarantine experience, I’m in.
On a personal level, there have been many moments in my sex life where I feel like I’ve been needing more UMPH. Not in terms of my partner, but for my own internal sake of feeling that goddess type energy rush through my veins. I want that to be a constant thing, and I’ve come to realize that not only is that normal for anyone to want but that I shouldn’t feel a single ounce of guilt for desiring an orgasm all the time. Sound like a deal universe?
What’s the ‘pleasure gap’?
We’re in a time where women are experiencing fewer orgasms, feeling more pain during sex, and connecting less with themselves as we live in the ever-stressful lives of being human beings in 2020. In fact, only 4% of humans with vulvas share that penetration is the most reliable path to orgasm. We should at least be looking for relief from the madness of our schedules in sex, but instead many of us have not been able to do that as much as we would like to. Being intimate with someone else is a straight-up birthright for all of us, yet the divine pleasure we seek is missing for so many of us. Can you relate?
One night while in a bath, I was having one of those major existential moments where you question a part of your life over and over while trying to tie together the missing pieces. It came to me that I use cannabis (these are a fav almost daily) for the usual day-to-day things (unwinding at the end of the day, smoking with friends, and to enhance my tastebuds while eating pizza), but never thought of applying it to sex??
What the experts are saying about sex + cannabis use.
*Puts research glasses on while wearing those old school PJs you refuse to get rid of* Turns out that medical professionals out there are just as curious as I am about the effects of cannabis on sex. Dr.Michael Eisenberg (a urologist at Stanford Health Care) developed a study titled “Association Between Marijuana Use and Sexual Frequency in the United States…”
Women who consumed THC daily had sex 7.1 times on average (during the four weeks of the study) compared to women who reported having sex only 6 times on average. Men also reported having sex 6.9 times on average more than men who restrained from cannabis use (those males reported having sex an average of 5.6 times).
The Department of Psych at the University of British Columbia also conducted a study on the correlation between cannabis and women’s libido. The science can’t truly have an end-all for what our favorite plant can do to our inner juice, but it was shown that topicals that were charged with lady cannabis spiked an increase in overall fire and spark for women in the bedroom. Boom baby.
CBD is a naturally-occurring molecule found in cannabis.
While we’re at it, don’t forget Hemp and high-THC varieties are both cannabis. Yep, you heard that right. Only the female plants within the Cannabis species can produce the cannabinoids we know and love so dearly, like CBD and THC. All Soul Addict CBD includes a conscious amount of THC that is within the federal legal limits of .3% THC or lower, so while it won’t get you ‘high’- it has been shown to help us relax into our body more. Coming home to yourself takes on a new meaning with madame cannabis.
Starting my cannabis + sex journey…
This is something that is truly exciting for me, as I always feel like I can apply the benefits of cannabis (both CBD + THC) to every facet of my living existence (but let’s be real, sex is a huge bubbly facet for many of us). While we all still wade in the murky waters of COVID-19, I feel that as a community it’s vital to pass on info like this to keep lifting the spirits of the collective. We truly are energetic beings first and foremost, so the more you indulge in pleasure during times of stress, the more that good juju can be passed on to the greater good.
I’ll keep y’all posted on what testing cannabis and sex together is like in the ‘Cannabis + Sex’ blog post numero dos in the near future, but until then, let’s turn up the spice in our SA community and be vocal about playing with both CBD and THC with our lovers! Stay safe & enjoy your time in the bedroom as much as possible. xx
