CBD has many positive effects on the human body with regard to both physical well-being and emotional states. We analyse the properties of CBD by considering its level of interaction with the brain, the body, the sexual system and the heart.

Have you read or has someone talked about the countless beneficial effects of CBD? Well, whoever told you about it was right.

CBD or cannabidiol, the active ingredient in light cannabis, has many properties. These include pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, anti-emetic and many more.

CBD happens to interact with the human body through a system called the endocannabinoid system. Through this, the properties of CBD can cause beneficial effects on the body.

The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating many functions including mood, memory, emotions, sleep, appetite, pain, the immune system, fertility and movement.

This means that the effects of CBD can be seen in many parts of the body and this is exactly what we are going to explore here. We will see how CBD interacts with the sexual system, the brain, and the heart.

But are they all just positive effects that CBD provides? We will also address the topic of CBD’s possible contraindications, which very often crowd the minds of those approaching this product for the first time.

Sexual effects of CBD

Is it possible to improve one’s sex life? With CBD, it seems so. 

Sexual intercourse is a wonderful time of sharing for a couple, but it is not always so easy to deal with. This means that something beautiful can very quickly turn into a challenge that causes stress and frustration.

Many people, more than one would think, experience sexual intercourse with a lot of anxiety, especially if they do not yet know their partner that well. The anxiety stems from the fear of not being enough, of feeling uncomfortable, of not pleasing the other person.

This factor can be purely psychological or can result from physical problems such as erectile dysfunction or pain and inflammation during penetration. In short, all aspects that make intercourse anything but pleasant.

The sexual effects of CBD are manifold. Its calming power is able to dispel the anxiety and stress that very often accompany a relationship with a new partner. In addition, its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory action can help those who generally suffer from pain during intercourse, making the act much more pleasurable and satisfying.

Effects of CBD on the human brain

The endocannabinoid system is found in both the central and peripheral nervous system, which means that it is also found in the brain.

At this point, a difference must be made between CBD and THC, the two main cannabinoids present in hemp: CBD and THC (the psychoactive compound that can induce a high) interact with different receptors of the endocannabinoid system.

According to research carried out by scientists on the impact of cannabidiol on human brain function, it was found that CBD even more than THC induced significant alterations in brain activity and connectivity patterns during the resting state and when performing cognitive tests.

By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, it essentially modulates cognitive functions, emotionality and sociality.

It also protects brain cells from damage and serious neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. It can therefore stimulate the growth of new cells and even calm inflammation.

It also helps with memory impairment and psychosis that can occur in diseases such as schizophrenia.

CBD effects on the heart

But CBD’s effects are certainly not limited to what we have seen so far. In fact, you should know that it is also a valuable ally in ensuring the health of your heart and preventing the onset of heart disease.

This is possible due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

First of all, CBD is able to lower blood pressure. Many heart diseases, such as stroke, are caused by too high a blood pressure. CBD is able to lower both blood pressure and heart rate.

Among other things, CBD is not only able to prevent diseases but also to treat them. Scientists studied the therapeutic potential of cannabidiol in ischemic stroke and noted that it helped during the recovery of brain function.

CBD also seems to help patients suffering from heart failure by improving blood flow.

So far, most of the research has been carried out on animals. Further studies are therefore needed to ascertain its efficacy against all doubt in humans as well, but the results so far are more than encouraging.

Slimming effects of CBD

How does CBD affect weight? This is a question that many people ask themselves.

We mentioned earlier that the endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating many functions, and among them is appetite. What CBD does is stimulate the metabolism and thus reduce food intake, in which sense it helps to lose weight.

But if it stimulates the appetite, could it also lead to weight gain? There is indeed this risk. In certain subjects, a side effect of CBD is precisely increased hunger.

However, CBD does not only interact on weight. It also works on the fat inside your body.

You may not know it, but not all fat is the same. One type (white fat), if accumulated in excess, can lead to diseases such as heart disease or diabetes.

On the other hand, there is another type of fat (brown fat) that burns calories by generating heat. This is the fat that must predominate in your body in order to have a healthy life.

CBD is able to convert white fat, i.e., the fat that would hurt you the most, into brown fat.

Are there any negative effects of CBD? 

Are you approaching this world for the first time and wondering if the effects of CBD can also be negative? You are not alone, it is a more than legitimate question.

In all tests carried out by scientists, CBD was always well tolerated by everyone, which means that we are talking about a fairly safe product.

Are there any contraindications? Only slight and in rare cases.

Dry mouth, tiredness, altered appetite, mood changes, diarrhoea, dizziness emerged in some subjects. Serious side effects did not occur in any cases.

In this regard, it is very important to know that side effects have mostly occurred as a result of the interaction of CBD with other drugs for the treatment of diseases. Since the effects of CBD are very powerful, if you are already undergoing treatment for a disease, we recommend that you seek advice from your doctor or a specialist.

There are no contraindications even in the case of overdose. Studies have shown that too much CBD is not harmful, but rather becomes ineffective compared to the correct amount suggested for the treatment of a specific condition.

Light cannabis is legal in the UK because its THC content is so low that it does not cause any high, so you do not even have to worry about this side effect, which for many can be very annoying.

How to use CBD oil safely 

CBD oil is an extremely versatile product, so much so that scientists have studied both its oral and topical use. Oral use consists of sublingual intake of a few drops of the product while locally it can be applied directly to an area of the body with a circumscribed condition to be treated.

To be safe, CBD must always be used in the right dosage, experts say.

As far as oil is concerned, some considerations must be made:  

  • Concentration: CBD oil can be found with different concentrations of CBD ranging from entry level 5% up to 40-50%, lower concentrations are suitable for those who have never tried the product or those with mild symptoms while higher concentrations are suitable for those who are already familiar with CBD and need to treat more severe symptoms;
  • Formulation: CBD in oil can be either isolated or combined with all the other natural substances present in hemp, and for many, the latter is the most complete and potent variant.

After making these assessments, it is very important to dose the oil correctly. In addition to the instructions given by doctors, it is important to follow the instructions on the packaging.

In general, experts always recommend starting with a low dosage and seeing how the body reacts. It may also help to note down reactions and gradually increase the dosage until an acceptable result is achieved.
