How is your sex drive?
Just because you are over 40, does it means no more sex?
Definitely not, just because you are getting older does not mean that you have to say goodbye to sex.
In fact, sex not only helps us with pleasure and getting shots of dopamine, but it also has some impactful health benefits both for our mind and body. And this has nothing to do with our age.
Our sexual desires are not supposed to fade away just because we are aging.
If you find that your libido is sinking, or perhaps because of perimenopause you find your hormones have made intercourse painful, then cannabis or CBD can potentially help. Cannabis is an anti-inflammatory and contains hundreds of cannabinoids that can help with relaxing the body and mind.
This powerful plant medicine is not just about getting stoned. It has medicinal properties to help your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and relieve many health issues like pain, anxiety, stress, low libido, and more.
