Many recreational or occasional smokers of cannabis will usually tell of achieving a great night’s sleep. Though this is a benefit for the occasional smoker of cannabis — who is generally feeling the beneficial qualities of intermittent THC use — the consistent user is far less likely to manage a significantly improved sleep.
CBD though, a non-psychoactive compound found within cannabis, has been shown to help those with sleep disorders. CBD has been found to help increase the third sleep phase, which is the deepest and most restive phase of sleep, while also reducing REM, which is the lightest part of the sleep phase. This is most likely due to CBD’s homeostasis effects, which work toward balancing out your endocannabinoid system (ECS); an important physiological system that regulates everything from mood, sleep, appetite, pain perception, the reproductive system, and a whole lot more. So if you’re suffering from sleep disorders that lead you to either have difficulty or an inability to perform sexually, evidence suggests that CBD for sex is a very real treatment possibility.
