Understanding the Link Between Endocannabinoids and SexWritten by Chris Weatherall on Dec 10, 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, generated 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, where users can carefully control potency level and gradually increase their dosage over time. These products 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 pleasant effects on the human body.
Kind Meds is proud to offer Sublime Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil, a topically applied cannabis product designed for personal lubrication that provides a unique cannabis experience using the patented Sublime Champagne Distillate. This massage oil is an exciting example of how the cannabis industry has evolved to accommodate new uses for cannabis and consumer preferences. Not just a THC-infused lubricant, this product is designed for enabling better health and a more fulfilling sex life.
The Interaction of Dopamine and Endocannabinoids in Your Body
Endocannabinoids often interact with the dopaminergic processes of the human body. 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 working out, 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 did you know that orgasms can actually support your endocannabinoid system? The human body produces and releases endocannabinoids as well as dopamine in response to various physically demanding activities. 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.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and benefits from topical cannabis application without producing psychoactive side effects. These products allow many people to enjoy cannabis for a variety of specific medical conditions as well as 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 various musculoskeletal and neuropathic 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.”. It creates physical sensations akin to the body high felt when eating edibles, but on a much milder level. This creates the perfect level of relief and enjoyment that you can build up over time.
Cannabis Topicals in the Bedroom
Did you know that cannabis users have 20% more sex than non-cannabis users? Bringing cannabis into the bedroom is the perfect blend of two traditionally taboo topics – just as cannabis has become normalized in our society, so too can cannabis become a normal part of your sex life. Many cannabis users already agree that sex under the influence of cannabis can be an incredibly powerful and enjoyable experience, enhancing intimacy and emotional connection with your partner. Now they can experience insanely pleasurable results by including cannabis products that cause body high sensations.
Specially designed for increased pleasure when applied to sensitive areas, 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 the Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil causes 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 touch 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. The vagina also has the highest concentration of cannabinoid receptors in the body, making it the perfect place for Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil.
How Your Sex Life Benefits from the Endocannabinoid System
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 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 sex and the body’s endocannabinoid system can allow people to enjoy sexual activity on much deeper levels.
Because 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. However, they certainly recognize the potential for cannabis to serve as a natural, side effect-free substitute for pharmaceuticals. 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 physical and mental health issues. This includes significant enhancement of one’s sex life and all of the benefits that go with it.
Upgrade Your Intimate Moments with Stoney Yoni
Designed by women for women, this whole plant hybrid blend oil was developed to enhance several facets of sexual activity, including stimulation, arousal, and lubrication. It features safe, food-grade all-natural ingredients and a 160mg dose of activated THC. This product not only ensures personal lubrication but can also potentially enhance male pleasure through contact. 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.
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 ensure the most enjoyable experience possible. Start with a smaller dose and work up to a level that’s comfortable for you and your partner. 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
The topical spray will take effect relatively quickly, with most users reporting increased arousal, sensitivity, and lubrication within minutes. Most users who try Stoney Yoni Original Massage Oil report gentle, warm, pleasurable tingling. If you’re a woman who suffers from dryness, tension, or discomfort during sex, this product doesn’t only act as a lubricant but can also help you produce more of your own natural lubrication.
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. It’s 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.
