Erectile dysfunction: can CBD help with sexual impotence?

Coping with impotence


All men can experience sexual impotence. This is not a problem in itself if it is a one-off event, however, if it occurs repeatedly, it can become a problem. This erectile dysfunction could then be caused by an external problem. It is important to find out what the source of the problem is first.

Researchers have looked into the benefits of CBD for erectile dysfunction. We explain how it works.

What is sexual impotence?

Sexual impotence or erectile dysfunction (ED) affects men in particular. It is defined as the inability to get and keep an erection long enough to perform penetrative sexual activity.

Erectile problems are not necessarily problematic if they only affect a short period of time. However, if they persist, it may be due to stress, anxiety or other psychological problems. Sexual impotence problems can affect self-confidence and bring out relationship problems. 

Sometimes impotence is simply a health problem that requires professional advice and specific treatment.

What factors cause impotence?

Sexual impotence usually occurs when the mental health of the person concerned is not good. This is because male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves various organs and functions of the body: hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles, blood circulation and, above all, the brain.

Sometimes it is a question of a chronic disease such as Parkinson's or diabetes and cholesterol, obesity or high blood pressure.

In short, quality of life can affect sexual arousal. If you have a poor lifestyle, smoke, drink alcohol frequently or take specific medications, then this will affect your sexuality and increase the risk of sexual impotence.

So, if you are psychologically uncomfortable, impotence may result. If you suffer from persistent sexual impotence, we advise you to consult a doctor who will determine whether or not you need special drug treatment.

Drug treatments

There is no specific treatment for sexual impotence. Depending on the patient's case, he will be advised. Some examples:

  • Lifestyle: When erectile problems are caused by a poor lifestyle, the doctor may advise physical activity, stopping drinking or smoking, or changing one's diet.

  • Pharmaceuticals: You probably know the famous "Viagra", the little blue pill that promises wonders. It is often prescribed to increase nitric oxide levels in the body. There are other components such as: tadalafil, vardenafil, avanafil.

  • Psychological counselling: Sometimes psychological counselling is recommended to help men overcome the stress, anxiety and lack of confidence they may feel about erectile dysfunction.

  • Surgery and implants: Some men use surgery and implants to help them overcome sexual impotence. This involves the insertion of an erection pump and penile implant to mechanically assist with erection.

How does CBD work on sexual impotence?

We've already told you about the benefits of CBD on your sexuality, but what about sexual impotence?

As you will have understood, impotence is caused by stress, anxiety, chronic illness or a poor lifestyle, to name but a few. It is important to understand how CBD works on the human body.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is derived from the hemp plant and has a multitude of benefits. It is mainly used to relieve stress, anxiety and physical pain. It acts on the receptors present in the endocannabinoid system in the human body. We tell you more about it right here.

Studies have proven that CBD is an effective ally for the human body. Moreover, the various problems encountered in erectile dysfunction fit perfectly with the benefits of CBD.

Generally, cannabidiol can help you with several issues:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Physical pain

  • Internal inflammation...

The list is not exhaustive and research on CBD is ongoing. But as far as sexual impotence is concerned, CBD will help you thanks to its anti-psychotic, anti-depressant, relaxing and soothing properties and above all it can allow you to relax your blood vessels which will increase your blood circulation. The more relaxed you are, the better your machine will be able to function.

As mentioned above, CBD acts on your endocannabinoid system. Through these receptors, it will be able to circulate in your body to keep a stable internal harmony and balance.
