Chances are, you’ve heard of the magic of the molecule CBD. This ingredient has slowly been integrated into the sectors of skincare, relief, mental health, sexual wellness, and more over the past few years, and for good reason. Now, what is it?
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is an isolated molecule that is derived from cannabis or hemp. CBD is a non-psychoactive element, meaning that it cannot make you feel ‘high’. CBD is responsible for the relaxing, calming effects associated with cannabis, while THC, a separate compound, is responsible for the psychoactive effects. Becaused of it’s association with cannabis, and its lack of psychoactive abilities, CBD was under-researched and the positive effects of CBD on the body were not studied critically until recent years.
What does CBD do?
As the bias against studying the benefits of CBD has lifted, many scientific studies have come to the same conclusions. CBD has been found to support the body’s natural inflammatory response. CBD works by binding to receptors that exist in our body’s natural endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system contributes to regulating our immune system, metabolism, and emotions as well as many other processes in the body. We produce cannabinoids naturally, to facilitate the balance of these systems. CBD is a phytocannabinoid, so when it binds to our cannabinoid receptors, it helps us regulate these systems even further by supplementing our initial cannabinoid supply.
CBD and sexual wellness
What does all of this mean for sexual wellness? In addition to the host of benefits listed above, CBD is also currently being studied as a way to support the body’s natural inflammatory response to endometriosis and pelvic pain. Due to the increased bloodflow CBD can facilitate, and its relaxing properties, CBD is also a great tool to incorporate in the bedroom. When applied topically, it helps facilitate the body’s natural lubrication. A recent study showed that CBD improved sex for people with vaginas in five key areas: sex drive, orgasm, lubrication, mitigating against dyspareunia or pain during intercourse, and overall sexual experience. (maybe insert a study from male perspective as well) *You can see where this is going, and that’s where we come into play. We’ll always strive to bring you the most innovative, top-of-the-line products with the cleanest ingredients, and best methodologies for increasing your own pleasure. We’ve worked with industry-leading chemists to bring you full-spectrum CBD and formulated our Pique serum to deliver 30 mg of the good stuff. Pique is for pleasure seekers in every body, and perfect for use in conjunction with our whet lube. Pique is compatible with solo play, toys, and partners. Don’t be afraid to not use sparingly.
Why is our CBD pleasure oil the best?
Because we always want to bring you the best, most pleasurable experience, we’ve formulated Pique with full-spectrum CBD. Full-spectrum CBD not only contains CBD isolate, but additional compounds as well that increase its effectiveness through a phenomenon called ‘the entourage effect’. Full-spectrum CBD contains small amounts of other cannabis compounds called terpenes and flavinoids, which studies have found significantly increase the response of the receptors in our endocannabinoid system. These receptors facilitate CBD’s relaxing and stabilizing effects on the body, so we’ve utilized full-spectrum CBD to make whatever experience you have the best it can be.
