CBD for Men

There’s such a wide range of products on the market which use cannabidiol or “CBD” as an ingredient. You can purchase anything from alcohol or coffee infused with CBD oil, CBD gummies and chocolates, to face creams and shampoos containing CBD. The rise in popularity of CBD started shortly after the non-psychoactive cousin of marijuana was legalized by the “Farm Act” in 2018.

What exactly is CBD?

CBD is a substance extracted from the cannabis or hemp plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol or “THC”, which is the active ingredient found in marajuna, CBD does not make people who consume it feel high. Instead, it is mainly used and marketed as a type of health product.

Certain studies and anecdotal evidence suggests that using CBD may have significant health benefits. For example, it’s thought that using CBD may alleviate joint pain and inflammation, provide relief from bloating, help with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression and even potentially cure insomnia. 

At the moment, CBD products are pretty much consumed equally by both women and men. Some research has suggested that CBD may be used as a potential treatment for certain conditions that mainly impact men. Let’s look at some of the uses of CBD for men. 

CBD for skin conditions and rashes

One of the ways in which CBD oil shows a lot of promise is the way it works as an anti-inflammatory. Some early indications suggest that it has soothing properties as well. This means that it might be particularly effective as a treatment for common male skin related problems, such as acne and shaving rashes. 

CBD for muscle and joint pain relief

As we mentioned, CBD appears to have certain anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown that CBD might be particularly useful as a treatment for people suffering from arthritis. However, if you regularly feel tinges of pain or suffer from inflammation after a session pumping the guns, then you might want to try some CBD after the gym. It may help soothe your post workout inflammation and reduce your recovery time. 

CBD for men with erectile dysfunction 

While it’s not been conclusively proven yet by science, there’s some anecdotal evidence and preliminary studies showing that CBD may help men who suffer from erectile dysfunction or an impaired libido. 

There’s some evidence to suggest that CBD might relax the blood vessels which helps with better blood flow. This, in turn, may help blood flow to the penis allowing men to maintain their erections for longer. 

Others suggest that CBD reduces anxiety and stress. Stress and anxiety are known to actually have a detrimental impact on sex drive. Therefore, men who consume CBD may benefit from its effectiveness in relieving stress and anxiety, and find their libdo is much stronger as a knock on effect. 

Conclusion 

While there’s a lot more research to be done on the effects of CBD for men, initial indications suggest that it could help with a number of conditions. In any event CBD looks like it’s here to stay and we look forward to seeing what benefits of CBD are eventually proven by science.
