What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol is a type of chemical called a “cannabinoid” that comes from marijuana plants. It interacts with the human body through the “endocannabinoid system” and is reputed to have a wide range of health benefits, including pain relief, reducing inflammation, and reducing anxiety. Unlike using marijuana, CBD products don’t contain THC, which is the active substance responsible for making you feel “high” when smoking cannabis.
Why CBD in the Lubricant?
The female reproductive system has a cannabinoid receptor called TRPA1, found in the clitoris. When activated this receptor causes an increase in nitric oxide. This in turn causes an increase in blood flow. CBD can activate TRPA1 receptors, leading to increased blood flow and producing an enhanced sensitivity. CBD has both been shown to have vasodilatory effects, they can help promote blood flow to the areas in which they are applied. Further studies show that the endocannabinoid system is involved in managing stress, blood circulation, pain, and many other factors that, directly or indirectly, may affect our experience in the bedroom.
