Understanding the Link Between Endocannabinoids and SexWritten by Marijuana Cannaisseur on Aug 27, 2020
The cannabis industry in the United States has undergone dramatic changes in just the last several years. Today, more states uphold medical marijuana legalization than ever before. Several states have either decriminalized or legalized the possession, sale, and use of recreational cannabis for adults. These changes in state and local laws across the country have created a boom of cannabis industry job opportunities, additional tax revenue for various states, and allowed millions of people to use and enjoy cannabis for medical and recreational purposes.
One of the most popular new ways to enjoy cannabis is through topical substances, such as lotions, balms, and personal lubricants. These products allow for precisely targeted application of cannabinoids like THC and CBD. With these, users can control potency level and delivery as necessary. These products also open many doors when it comes to potential uses of cannabis to improve quality of life for people experiencing many different medical conditions that cause physical pain, such as arthritis, while also allowing adults to experiment with different ways of enjoying cannabis’s effects on the human body.
Kind Meds now sells Sublime Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil, a topically applied cannabis product designed for feminine hygiene and a unique cannabis experience using the patented Sublime Champagne Distillate. This product is one of the best ways to introduce cannabis to your sex life, but first, it’s important to understand the interactions of endocannabinoids and sex. Sublime’s Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil is not just a THC-infused lubricant, it is a product designed for enabling better health and a more fulfilling sex life.
How Your Endocannabinoid System Can Jump Start Your Sex Life
Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil is just one example of how the cannabis industry has evolved to accommodate new uses for cannabis and consumer preferences. Topical cannabis products allow many people to enjoy cannabis, for either specific medical uses or recreation. Some people need medical cannabis to manage certain medical conditions but cannot handle smoking cannabis. Others simply prefer a more targeted application of cannabis-infused medical products to specific body parts, which is particularly beneficial for the management of some musculoskeletal conditions.
When you use a topical cannabis product, the cannabinoids in the substance will penetrate the skin to enter the bloodstream, resulting in a primarily physical sensation or “body high.” This sensation is helpful for pain management purposes, but products like Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil allow for increased pleasure when applied to sensitive areas.
The best part about topical cannabis products is the fact that they create physical sensations akin to the body high felt when eating edibles, but on a much milder level that creates the perfect level of relief and enjoyment without getting into the realm of “too stoned.” When this occurs, it can be difficult for anyone, but especially men, to truly be present in and enjoy the moment.
Cannabis Topicals in the Bedroom
Many cannabis users agree that sex under the influence of cannabis can be an incredibly powerful and enjoyable experience, and cannabis products that cause body high sensations often yield the most pleasurable results. Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil is an antimicrobial and antibacterial personal lubricant with a coconut oil base enriched with THC. The Sublime Champagne Distillate included in the mixture is a powerful THC concentrate. “Yoni” is the Sanskrit word for vagina, and when applied in this region it the Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil can cause warming and pleasant swelling sensations that can increase sexual arousal and enjoyment of sexual activity.
During intimate moments, the parts of the body that receive the most pleasurable sensations from a partner’s touching are generally the areas with the strongest blood flow beneath the skin. By applying topical cannabis products to sensitive areas, it’s possible to enhance the sensitivity of these parts of the body and take sex to a new level by stimulating blood flow. This is just one example of how endocannabinoids interact with the dopaminergic processes of the human body.
The relatively mild nature of cannabis-infused topicals is another reason why they can be so helpful in the bedroom. While many cannabis enthusiasts enjoy sex under the influence of cannabis, sometimes smoking cannabis or ingesting cannabis-infused foods can produce too strong of a high that can actually cause sex to be less enjoyable or even uncomfortable. With topical cannabis products like Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil, it’s easier to control the amount applied to the body without risking adverse side effects.
Endocannabinoids and Dopamine Responses in the Brain
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter produced naturally in the human body that causes feelings of pleasure and satisfaction. When the body recognizes external stimuli that cause a rewarding feeling, dopamine is released into the bloodstream, and the individual experiences pleasure. People can achieve dopamine release or dopaminergic responses through many actions, such as completing a task, eating a tasty meal, drinking water when thirsty, or experiencing an orgasm.
Many people are well aware that orgasms can reduce stress levels and cause huge surges of dopamine, but can orgasms help your endocannabinoid system? The human body produces and releases endocannabinoids in response to various things, such as exercise. Sex is an intense physical activity and also a pleasurable one, so it’s something of a double-whammy when it comes to activating the body’s endocannabinoid system.
The body’s natural endocannabinoid system can also benefit from regular healthy sexual activity. The human body’s endocannabinoid system includes two types of cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2. While researchers at first believed that orgasms must trigger the CB1 receptors, which are front and center for the brain’s pleasure center, the reality is that sex seems to trigger CB2 receptor response much more readily. This discovery has opened new doors for research into the endocannabinoid system, sexual dysfunction, and potential treatments using cannabis.
Combining Cannabis and Endocannabinoid System Release With Sex
Since sex has an undeniably positive effect on the body’s endocannabinoid system, introducing cannabis into the equation opens a whole new realm of possibilities when it comes to the enjoyment of and satisfaction from sexual intimacy. Cannabis is a natural libido booster. It places the body into a relaxed state of enjoyable heightened sensitivity and leaves the mind more open to creative and provocative thoughts and feelings. Combining these effects with the natural links between the body’s endocannabinoid system and sex can allow people to enjoy sexual activity on much deeper levels.
While there is plenty of room for additional research on the subject, many physicians across multiple disciplines that are familiar with cannabis may not recommend it as the first level of treatment for sexual dysfunction, but they certainly recognize the potential for cannabis to be a worthy treatment for it. Both men and women experience health benefits when they achieve orgasm on a regular basis and combining sex with cannabis makes it not only possible to enjoy multiple orgasms, but also more intense, satisfying ones.
Cannabis is currently under extensive review from leading medical professionals across various disciplines, and the current consensus is that cannabis’s psychoactive and physical effects in tandem mean it has incredible potential for treating conditions related to both physical and mental health, including sex.
Try a Topical Addition to Your Sex Life With Stoney Yoni
If you and your partner decide to introduce a product like Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil into your bedroom, remember to take a cautious approach to using cannabis topicals to have the most enjoyable experience possible. Start with a smaller dose and work up to a level that’s comfortable for you and your partner. Taking too much may result in more euphoria than expected and could make it difficult to focus on the activities at hand. If there is any chance that a topical cannabis product you apply to your own body may touch and affect your partner, be sure they are aware, comfortable, and consenting to the idea.
Sublime developed Stoney Yoni specifically to enhance sexual stimulation, arousal, and lubrication using food-grade and safe all-natural ingredients and a 160mg dose of activated THC. This product not only ensures feminine hygiene but can also potentially enhance male pleasure too through contact. As with any cannabis-infused product, it’s vital to use new products cautiously and avoid using too much for the first time. This will allow you to find the “sweet spot” and enjoy the most pleasurable experiences possible.
What to Expect When You Try Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil
As the name of the product suggests, you apply Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil directly to the “yoni” with the convenient spray cap. Start with a small amount and experiment to determine the ideal amount for you. The topical spray will take effect relatively quickly, with most users reporting increased arousal, sensitivity, and lubrication within minutes. It’s natural and expected to experience warmth and mild, pleasant swelling in the applied area.
Most users who try Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil report gentle and pleasurable tingling and that the lubricant causes them to produce more natural lubricant of their own. Women who generally have difficulty reaching orgasm have reported that the effects of Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil made reaching orgasm much easier than usual. Women who have experienced multiple orgasms in the past but have recently been unable to achieve multiple orgasms have reported that Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil has allowed them to enjoy multiple orgasms again.
Sublime uses their patented Sublime Champagne Distillate in their Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil, which is the same THC base used in their edible confections. Users can expect a noticeable effect with just one spray. It’s also important to note that Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil features a coconut oil base, meaning it will break down latex condoms. Use alternative protection to practice safe sex as this oil can cause latex condoms to fail.
