Today we’re talking about something that may be uncomfortable for some, but it affects many men: erectile dysfunction. Did you know that cannabis may be able to help?
Erectile dysfunction is often a strictly physical problem, but it can also stem from mental or emotional issues. Cannabis has unique properties that can support both your body and your mind.
As we all know, federal laws limit clinical research on cannabis. But decades of surveys show that people who use cannabis tend to have sex more often and experienced heightened sensation. There is still no definitive answer to why cannabis boosts sexual health. There are, however, some known health properties that are clearly relevant, such as cannabis’s anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects.
Chronic inflammation can lead to all kinds of health problems, from heart disease to cancer. But did you know that it can also cause impotence? One of the primary health properties of cannabis is its anti-inflammatory effects on the entire body. Cannabinoids, CBD in particular, activate the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to reduce inflammation in arteries and vessels. The increase in circulation gets blood flowing to all the right places!
For some men, erectile dysfunction is often related to stress. Nervousness and anxiety can easily extinguish desire. Cannabis is well-known for its calming effects. Many use cannabis to aid stress and anxiety. The anti-anxiety effects of THC may help ease uncomfortable tension in your mind and body to improve healthy sexual performance.
Dr. Perry Solomon, M.D., the chief medical officer at HelloMD, sees many patients who experience difficulties with sexual wellbeing. He tried recommending cannabis to improve both the physical and emotional aspects of sexual health. The results were, shall we say, uplifting.
His search for alternative treatments stemmed from the fact that Viagra has possible harmful side effects. Many people experience headaches, muscle pain, nausea, dizziness, rashes and other uncomfortable symptoms. Rare cases of vision loss, hearing damage and heart failure are also possible. Cannabis, on the other hand, has no harmful side effects when dosed properly.
A single draw from your vape pen may be all you need. Too much cannabis can be overly sedating. The key is to start slow and go slow—you don’t need to get “high.”
Maybe it’s just making [my patients] feel better and relaxed, and that’s making it easier for them to enjoy sex, but it’s still working.
—Dr. Perry Solomon, M.D.
Solomon claims, “Maybe it’s just making [my patients] feel better and relaxed, and that’s making it easier for them to enjoy sex, but it’s still working.”
Before trying cannabis for sexual health, consult your physician to determine what kinds of products and what amounts may work best for you. After all, cannabis affects everyone differently. It’s important that you’re in a comfortable environment with a trusted partner and affirmative consent.
Absolutely a great dispensary. Team is always ready with a smile and patient to a fault with MMUR questions. This dispensary goes above and beyond in customer service and is always open to any issues you might have before or after product purchase. ...Between the rewards points you accumulate and the regular sales they have across all product lines, you will not go broke or sacrifice quality. ...Surterra should be a regular stop. And the Coral Reefer line is AMAZING!
Very friendly staff! They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The team is very knowledgeable about all products and very helpful to find the right thing for you. Clean space and quick service.
Surterra is, by far, the best dispensary out of the 5 in my neighborhood. I need a high THC for pain relief, etc. and Surterra generally has some 30%+. Their discounts and rewards program are the best in the area. The budtenders and support staff are awesome.
Surterra has the best pre-rolls in my area of multiple dispensaries to choose from. They're not too tight & burn great. This is the place to get your pre-rolls folks!
The customer service and products I received are top notch. As a new patient they've taken the time to answer all my questions and ensure that I completely understand, not just make the sale and rush me out the door like other places. The daily sales and special discount offers make things very affordable...the attention I receive from the customer service reps will keep me coming back.
This is my absolute favorite dispensary. Daily deals, amazing customer service, and phenomenal products. Surterra has been coming out swinging with the recent new flower strains! They are by far the most efficient/fastest dispensary I've ever been to. 12/10, highly recommend.
