Cannabidiol (CBD) touts a wide variety of medicinal benefits. Some evidence shows CBD use may intensify orgasms, but how effective is it for increasing sexual pleasure?

The answer to that question is multilayered.

CBD & its uses

Cannabidiol is an ingredient derived from the Cannabis sativa (marijuana) plant. It’s a common component of medical marijuana, but it’s not the substance that causes you to get high (that’s THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol). While some people may be averse to using CBD for medicinal purposes because of its association with marijuana, some studies show numerous benefits associated with its use, including boosting physical and mental health and wellness.

While CBD is sometimes misunderstood as a dangerous substance, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports cannabidiol doesn’t have the potential to cause dependence or public health problems.
