3 Reasons to Try CBD for Your Vag
Hemp, hemp, hooray—it’s CBD month! But how does CBD work, and why use CBD for your vag?
With the 2018 Farm Bill legalizing the cultivation of industrial hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3 percent THC), CBD was no longer considered a controlled substance and exploded in popularity almost overnight. In response, cbdMD designated January as National CBD Month to celebrate this increased interest.
CBD is just one of the many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant that works with our bodies’ natural endocannabinoid system to:
1) Increase blood flow
As a vasodilator, CBD encourages your veins to open, allowing blood to flow freely. More blood flow to your vulva and vagina can encourage natural lubrication and lead to heightened sensation—meaning better orgasms!
2) Promote pelvic relaxation
CBD has been shown help to prevent muscle rigidity and spasms, making penetration more comfortable and even soothing menstrual cramps! Our products are referred by Pelvic Floor Therapists and Sex Therapists to supplement pelvic floor therapy for people experiencing or recovering from chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis, vaginismus, vaginal birth, and/or menopause.
3) Decrease inflammation and pain
Not only can increased blood flow and muscle relaxation help minimize pain and inflammation in the first place, but CBD also acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory, providing additional relief. Prevention even named Smooth Operator the best CBD lube for pain relief!
Along with natural hemp-CBD, our products are formulated with plant-based ingredients like aloe vera (shown to improve vaginal elasticity) and tea tree oil (a natural antifungal) for a happier vagina and better, more intimate sex!
