CBD used topically is thought to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and promote relaxation supporting comfort when it counts. Some people have reported increased sensitivity to touch and improved arousal when using our Jomo Arousal Oil. JOMO’s hemp-derived CBD extract is 100% natural and plant-based, gently refined to contain no THC, meaning you can’t get high. CBD’s natural benefits are boosted by our holistically inspired essential oil blend, which contains terpenes that are found naturally in the cannabis plant to increase the effects and bioavailability of the “miracle molecule” CBD.
Our body is naturally receptive to endocannabinoids such as CBD, which are absorbed throughout the body via specialised receptors. This increases the blood flow leading to heightened pleasure.
INCREASED BLOOD FLOW
CBD has been known to demonstrate vasodilatory effects. This means that it widens the blood vessels, helping improve blood flow. This is beneficial for both men and women.
In men, this increased blood flow can help maintain stronger erections and provide some help with erectile dysfunction.
In women, increased blood flow to the vulva and vagina helps to promote physical arousal, leading to heightened sensitivity and increased natural lubrication.
CBD is effective at relieving many issues that can interfere with arousal and sexual intimacy. One of the main causes of low libido in both men and women is heavily linked to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. There is much research suggesting CBD is highly effective and helping to treat anxiety disorders and decrease stress levels. Lower stress levels means a higher sex drive!
Studies suggest that CBD can help to remedy sexual dysfunction caused by chronic pain. Another core reason why women in particular may suffer from low libido is due to chronic pain caused by reproductive conditions such as endometriosis and polycystic ovaries. CBD is known to help relieve the symptoms of chronic pain associated with these conditions.
Some research suggests that CBD can be effective at relaxing muscles. Conditions such as vaginismus, where vaginal penetration is made uncomfortable or even impossible due to involuntary tensing of the vaginal walls, can likely benefit from the muscle-relaxant benefits of CBD.
Menopause and perimenopause are a natural fact of life for all women. There is scope to improve the severity of symptoms and improve the general well-being for those going through “the change”. CBD can help in alleviating a number of symptoms lined to menopause/perimenopause.
CBD acts on our serotonin system which is a key hormone in mood regulation.
Night-time symptoms in the peri menopausal phase are thought to be linked to reduced levels of GABA, our calming neurotransmitter. Plant cannabinoids may help to regulate GABA levels, and in turn reduce the severity of some perimenopausal symptoms. More GABA is linked to a calmer brain and more restful sleep.
Another factor in reduced sleep quality or difficulty sleeping is anxiety, and there are many studies showing the benefits of CBD in reducing perceived levels of anxiety.
Reduced sex drive
Topically applied CBD may help to reduce tension, stress and anxiety, which by itself can help relight a lost spark in one’s sex life.
The vulva mucosa and skin surrounding the clitoris is more porous than non-genital skin, allowing for greater absorption.
Introducing a lubricant is a great approach to help deal with vaginal dryness brought on by menopausal symptoms. A good lubricant can help increase comfort by decreasing friction.
Joint aches & pains
One symptom many women report when approaching menopause is an increase in aches and pains. Topical CBD products have been used for years by professional and amateur athletes to help with just this. CBD’s anti-inflammatory action can help to relieve this discomfort.
