What is impotence?
Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is defined as the persistent and repeated inability to achieve and maintain an erection firm enough to perform penetrative sexual activity.
Erectile dysfunction is not necessarily a problem if it occurs only once. But when they persist, they can cause stress and anxiety, affect self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Impotence problems can also be a sign of a health problem that requires professional help and treatment.
What causes impotence problems?
Male sexual arousal is part of a complex process involving various organs and functions of the body: the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood flow to name a few. The mental health is also an important factor that can cause or worsen sexual impotence.
Certain medical conditions such as diabetes, cholesterol or Parkinson's disease can also cause a dysfunction in sexual arousal.
Also, quality of life can affect sexual arousal. If you smoke, take specific medications, have poor dietary habits, or use drugs and alcohol, this will increase the risk of impotence.
Finally, impotence can result from a combination of physical and psychological dysfunctions
If you are suffering from persistent impotence, we recommend that you consult a healthcare professional who will determine whether or not the nature of your impotence requires treatment with medication.
Treatments for impotence
After identifying the nature of the erectile dysfunction, doctors first suggest treating the causes that lead to impotence (depression, diabetes...)
After ruling out all external possibilities, if the problem persists, doctors propose various treatments to help regain an erection quickly
First of all, there are oral drug treatments. You probably know about Viagra. A multitude of similar drugs can help. They enhance the effects of nitric oxide, a natural chemical produced by your body that relaxes your penis muscles. This increases blood flow and allows you to get an erection in response to sexual stimulation. These drugs have many undesirable side effects (stomach upset, back pain, vision changes...). It is strongly recommended that you consult a doctor before taking this type of medication.
There are also there are also drug treatments applied to the penis or by injection These are creams to be applied to the penis or injections to be made into the penis. These treatments contain a substance (alprostadil) which acts locally by causing a dilation of the blood vessels of the penis, thus allowing an erection.
There is also surgery to revascularize the penis by improving blood flow and pressure in the corpora cavernosa. An operation is only possible on certain patients.
Natural treatments for impotence are few and far between. They mostly include taking care of one's mental health, getting plenty of exercise and consulting for psychological support
CBD is an increasingly popular product that provides real non-harmful support and no side effects, to help with impotence issues and gain a better sex life.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD, is one of the cannabinoids identified in cannabis among more than a hundred others. Once consumed, it acts on the body's receptors just like another better known cannabinoid, Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. THC is known to have psychoactive effects while CBD only produces therapeutic and relaxing effects.
CBD fascinates scientists and consumers alike because of its therapeutic properties. Indeed, CBD is considered to have anticonvulsant, antipsychotic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antidepressant effects. In particular, it is known to have very encouraging effects on the symptoms of epilepsy and many other inflammatory diseases.
For example, studies have already proven the benefits of cannabidiol on the condition (physical and psychological) of people suffering from multiple sclerosismultiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia fibromyalgiafibromyalgia, Parkinson's parkinson's disease or evenendometriosis
The side effects of CBD
The side effects of CBD are rare and depend on the individual who suffers them. However, we can distinguish effects including changes in appetite, dry mouth, dizziness and sometimes temporary headaches. If they appear, they often subside during the first few uses.
Can CBD help with erectile dysfunction?
CBD can help treat or manage symptoms such as:
anxiety and stress
This list is not exhaustive. Indeed, CBD is a product that has been proven through numerous scientific studies to have therapeutic effects on a wide range of symptoms
Its effects anticonvulsant, antipsychotic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant or antidepressant effects greatly help to reduce the harmful effects of symptoms that can cause or worsen impotence in men.
How does CBD work on impotence problems?
CBD and blood circulation
As mentioned above, high blood pressure can cause blood vessel damage and erectile dysfunction. A study from Oxford University attests that CBD can relax blood vessels, which increases blood flow and therefore lower blood pressure.
CBD and anxiety
Stress and anxiety are two factors that affect sexual performance and vice versa. Using CBD for erectile dysfunction can help relax the consumer and relieve anxiety in the same way as an anti-anxiety medication, but without any side effects. The relaxed feeling it produces helps break the cycle of performance anxiety, and allows one to regain a normal sex life.
CBD and sex hormones
The endocannabinoid system, on which CBD acts, helps maintain a stable internal balance, despite variations in the external environment. When hormones are out of balance, taking CBD can help bring them back into a healthy balance.
What CBD products for impotence problems?
There are different options if you decide to start using CBD products to improve your sexual activity
The use of a cBD massage oil massage oil or a cBD lubricant lubricant will work faster than an edible or supplement. The product will be applied directly to the penis. Topical CBD products are typically used to relieve pain and reduce inflammation, making them perfect for massage oils. In addition to making the massage easier and more enjoyable, the CBD component actively works to relax the muscles.
L'cBD oil oil is also a good alternative. First of all, it brings relaxation, self-confidence and spontaneity before the sexual act. Secondly, it can significantly reduce your general anxiety level and potentially your impotence. It is recommended to consume it several times a week in small doses to see long-term effects.
If you are already under any kind of medical treatment, please ask your doctor for advice on the doses to take.
Last advice : Do not confuse CBD with cannabis. Heavy use of cannabis can lead to erectile dysfunction. CBD will not cause these types of side effects.
