How CBD Affects Men and Women

March 11, 2020 09:00:23

Cannabidiol seems to have grabbed the world by the throat, and it’s not letting go any time soon. The hemp extract has been in the mainstream for only a few years but it is insanely popular, with experts estimating that the CBD industry will be worth $20 billion by 2024. CBD’s popularity is due to its medicinal properties. Users claim the chemical is effective against a variety of ailments, ranging from high blood pressure and anxiety to chronic pain and insomnia.

The hemp extract affects people differently, based on a variety of factors such as age and metabolism. Gender also affects how CBD will affect you. Hormonal differences, for instance, will influence how CBD will interact with the endocannabinoid system (ESC). This is a nervous system that interacts with cannabinoids made by the body to regulate functions like sleep, immune response, and pain.

In men, cannabidiol-infused products can help boost their reproductive health. Cannabinoids interact with endocannabinoid receptors spread throughout the body, and these receptors can also be found in testicular tissue and sperm. Studies have shown that CBD can help balance testosterone levels, which has an effect on virility and libido.

CBD has known anti-anxiety properties, and it can help reduce anxiety and overthinking in the moment, which is known to reduce sexual performance.

However, due to a number of reasons, cannabis tends to be less reactive in men. For instance, men have faster metabolisms, and they might burn through a dose of CBD faster than a woman would, resulting in the need for higher doses if they want the effects to last longer.

Women, on the other hand, have slower metabolisms, so while it may take a while for the CBD to kick in, the effects will be stronger and will last for longer than a man taking a similar dose. Cannabidiol works in concert with estrogen to regulate mood and emotional responses, hence a dose of CBD will have a positive impact on estrogen, resulting in better moods.

Some women suffer from depression and anxiety during menopause due to reduced estrogen levels, which has an adverse effect on serotonin levels. CBD can help activate serotonin receptors, and it also helps in binding to 5-HT1A receptors, which are known to have a role in anxiety disorders.

CBD’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties make it a good natural alternative to other skincare options. The chemical can help reduce irregular pigmentation, hide wrinkles and promote hydration.

Although CBD works a little differently for both genders, it can help alleviate a ton of conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, and depression, and help boost sex life across the board. However, make sure you consult your physician before using any CBD products, especially if you’re on any other medication.

It is widely believed that the entire CBD industry, including SinglePoint Inc. (OTCQB: SING), may be gradually pivoting towards formulating products that are intended to address the specific needs of a given demographic, such as elderly women, in order to deliver greater value to those groups.
