What Is Sexual Performance Anxiety?  

SPA is a type of performance anxiety that primarily affects sexual activity. A person suffering from this condition is frequently overcome by the fear of being unable to perform either before or during sexual activities.

Sexual performance anxiety leads to a cycle of troubles. You might become so anxious about sex that you can't perform, which leads to even more sexual performance anxiety.

How Cannabis Reacts With Sexual Performance Anxiety | Hempivate

How CBD & THC Interact With ECS 

One of the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is the compound that causes you to become "high." THC, like endocannabinoids, interacts with your ECS once it enters your body by binding to receptors. Its potency stems from the fact that it can bind to both CB1 and CB2 receptors.

According to experts CBD interacts with the ECS. They believe it works by preventing endocannabinoids from being broken down. This allows them to have more of an effect on your body. 

SPA is more common than you know & nothing to be embarrassed about, CBD products currently don’t have many known side effects, they may be worth trying if you’re looking for ways to enhance your sex life. Get your CBD today!
