CBD gummies for sex: Wouldn’t it be nice if you could beat your erectile dysfunction and boost sexual pleasure by eating candy? Anecdotal “evidence” abounds, but science isn’t entirely on board with the idea yet.

Here’s what we know so far.

What Are CBD Gummies for Sex?

CBD gummies are sweets infused with cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabidiol is extracted from the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not intoxicate users or impair them in any way.

CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of receptors and neurotransmitters involved in maintaining balance in various bodily functions. The ECS plays a role in mood, pain sensation, and other areas that can influence sexual experience.

CBD products may alleviate pain, boost mood, and help users relax. At the time of this writing, however, the only medical condition approved by the FDA for treatment with CBD is seizures.

Do Sex Gummies Really Work?

People who take CBD orally, in the form of gummies, tinctures, etc., may notice a boost in sexual performance and pleasure. The compound may reduce performance anxiety associated with sex and ED.

At this point, however, reports of CBD’s erection-boosting effects are purely anecdotal.

What Do People Say About CBD Gummies’ Sexual Benefits?

The anecdotal feedback people provide about the sexual pleasure and erection-boosting effects of CBD gummies is mixed. Some people say the sweets help them relax and overcome their inhibitions, akin to being tipsy. 

Under these circumstances, CBD gummies may improve the sexual experience indirectly. 

“It makes every part of the body more sensitive to touches,” says one Reddit user about CBD. Other posters agree. Others say they take CBD gummies as well as THC gummies to trigger feelings of euphoria. 

“I’ve found that gummies make it a lot easier for me to orgasm, and sex overall is much more intense and enjoyable,” says another user. 

But not all users agree. “It doesn’t do anything for me personally,” says another poster, highlighting the many challenges the anecdotal approach meets when trying to establish a fact. 

CBD is not standardized and approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Nor does science recognize it as a sexual experience booster. Because of the lack of FDA regulation, available products contain varying amounts of active substances, and many may not contain CBD at all. 

What’s more, scammers have taken to peddling CBD products online. Some advertise a price, yet charge more. They may even charge victims’ credit cards regularly without clarifying up front that users are signing up for a subscription. Be careful about the products you attempt to buy. 

If you want to use CBD gummies for erectile dysfunction, talk to a qualified healthcare professional first. 

What Does Science Say?

Researchers have performed no controlled clinical studies with CBD products. The lack of standardization in dosing may explain why: It’s impossible to find products with consistent CBD content for testing.

Still, many less-rigorous medical studies exist that have yielded promising results.

  • A 2019 study found that CBD may have anti-anxiety benefits.
  • According to a 2020 survey, CBD-based products may boost male sexual function.
  • According to a 2023 study, more than 70% of participants reported enhanced libido and orgasms due to cannabis use.
  • A 2021 study found that CBD may improve lower urinary tract problems but may harm sperm formation and the testicles.

None of these studies were controlled clinical studies. Many relied on self-reported outcomes. And they all admitted their limitations, recommending further research into the possible impact of CBD libido gummies.

The promise of better sex due to sex-enhancing CBD gummies is there. For the time being, however, the science isn’t conclusive.

How CBD Gummies for Sex Might Work

Does it make sense to take CBD for sexual health? Do sex gummies really work?  They might — we just don’t have robust scientific evidence to prove it yet.

In addition to the anecdotal evidence some people and medical studies provide, some theories also seem to back CBD’s efficacy as an erectile function booster.

Here’s how.

Effects on Stress and Anxiety

CBD seems to help people relax and overcome anxiety. Performance anxiety often accompanies erectile dysfunction.  In extreme cases, performance anxiety may be the very cause of ED. By eliminating anxiety, sex-enhancing CBD gummies may, indeed, boost erectile function indirectly.

Improving Blood Flow

CBD gummies for sex may boost erectile function directly since they may help the blood vessels relax and dilate (vasodilation).

CBD may induce vasodilation, reducing blood pressure. PDE5 inhibitors like sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis) work in the same way. They help blood vessels dilate and allow more blood to flow to the penis.

If CBD does the same, it may be a direct erection booster. Interestingly, though, according to a 2020 study, CBD’s blood vessel dilating effects are weaker in patients with high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.

Relieving Pain

Many doctors have considered CBD as an alternative to opioid medications in the treatment of chronic pain.

There’s anecdotal evidence that CBD may help alleviate chronic pain and improve patients’ quality of life. Researchers have explored this possibility and concluded they need more clinical trials to gain proof.

By relieving pain in people suffering from chronic pain, CBD gummies for sex may make sexual activity more comfortable and desirable.

Improving Sleep

Preliminary studies concluded that CBD-based products, like CBD gummies for intimacy, may help insomnia sufferers.

If it can improve sleep quality, CBD can boost the quality of life. Sleep quality also impacts erectile function. Improving it may also improve your erections.

Fighting Inflammation

CBD has anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects. It inhibits the expression of pro-inflammatory genes and reduces inflammatory compounds in the body, which may help manage several diseases.

Systemic inflammation is among the causes of erectile dysfunction. By reducing inflammation, CBD may boost erectile function.

Placebo Effect

Patients who believe in CBD sexual performance enhancers are more likely to derive real benefits from sexual wellness CBD gummies due to the placebo effect.

Even if you are a believer in the erectile function-boosting effects of CBD gummies, talk to your doctor before using them.

These products are not FDA-approved and regulated. You can never be sure of how much (if any) CBD they contain. And you may expose yourself to scams buying these products.

CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are legal federally. In some states, they may only be conditionally legal, however.

It always pays to choose legal, FDA-approved drugs.
