CBD BENEFITS FOR MEN'S HEALTH
Cannabidiol is a popular, natural product for those looking to use alternative aids to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. In this article, we will cover some of the main benefits of CBD for men's health.
CBD for Cardiovascular Health
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the world, with an estimated 17.9 million lives per year. CVD is a group of diseases of the heart and blood vessels and includes ischemic heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and other conditions. Men are at high-risk groups of being prone to heart diseases, such as heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke, since, according to statistics, they try to pay less attention to the symptoms, and seek medical help less often than women.
A 2012 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology examined the available medical literature to determine whether CBD might hold promise as a supplement for promoting overall cardiovascular health. The literature suggests that CBD could indeed be very promising in this area. CBD increases blood flow, both when it’s administered and over the long term. In addition, an animal study showed that acute administration of CBD following a stroke helped to protect the brain from damage.
CBD could lower high blood pressure, which is one of the main causes of strokes and heart attacks.
CBD for Sleep Quality
Sleep is an important part of our health. If we don't get an average of 6-8 hours of sleep each night, it increases the possibility of being irritable the next day and not working at our optimal potential.
In 2019, the Permanente Journal published a study in which Kaiser Permanente patients who complained of poor sleep quality and anxiety were given CBD and assessed for improvements. Over the one-month study, two thirds of patients reported improved sleep scores. Although the physicians who performed the study noted that this topic requires further research, they also pointed out that CBD seems to be much better tolerated by patients than traditional psychiatric medications for anxiety and insomnia.
CBD for Pain and Inflammation
CBD’s ability to reduce inflammation has been well documented over the years, and chronic pain – especially due to everyday issues like muscle strain and overwork – is one of the most common reasons why people use CBD. Because CBD reduces inflammation in the body, using it in sporting before or after exercise or strenuous activity can be beneficial for muscle recovery.
CBD is available in many forms, and if you want to try taking it for pain or inflammation, it’s worthwhile to try both oral CBD products and topical CBD products like gels and rollers to find out which type gives you the best results. In one of the more promising studies about CBD and pain, researchers administered a transdermal CBD gel to rats with arthritic joints. The researchers then studied the rats’ behavior and examined the physical properties of the arthritic joints. After being given CBD, the rats resumed their normal exploratory behavior, which indicated that their pain was lessened. In addition, the reduced circumference of the arthritic joints indicated that the CBD gel had reduced inflammation.
CBD for Male Sexual Health
To date, there have been no clinical studies promoting the potential effectiveness of CBD for promoting male sexual health. Anecdotal reports vary according to Healthline, with some people reporting that CBD has been a game-changer for sex and others saying that it doesn’t appear to do anything at all. Since evidence suggests that CBD appears to relax the blood vessels and improve circulatory function, it may be worthwhile to try CBD for erectile dysfunction – but keep in mind that, if you have systemic circulatory system issues, it may take a while to determine whether taking CBD will have any effect. Studies also suggest that CBD can have a positive effect on situational anxiety – so if you have concerns related to your sexual performance, you may find that CBD does a great deal to improve your intimacy.
