Some of you may recall my little ditty from early 2005, Better Than Viagra.

I now have something to add and that includes some science. CBDs from cannabis do the job and don’t get you high. CBD is legal in all 50 states. But first the science.

Hypercholesterolemia is one of the most important risk factors for erectile dysfunction, mostly due to the impairment of oxidative stress and endothelial function in the penis. The cannabinoid system might regulate peripheral mechanisms of sexual function; however, its role is still poorly understood.

In summary, CB2 activation decreased histological features, which were associated with erectile dysfunction in hypercholesterolemic mice.

Mice? So far the best I can do for humans is anecdotes.

…studies have shown that CBD oil alone will help with these things, but isn’t guaranteed if still mixed with THC in marijuana strains. So while many people like the “sexy” feeling they get when they get high with marijuana” the THC seems to be counterproductive when it comes to ED.

When CBD and THC are together, THC will overpower the CBD in some situations and have the reverse affect. Many men have claimed that CBD oil alone will prevent Erectile Dysfunction and boost their performance and endurance, but because of THC’s psychoactive nature, marijuana will have the opposite effect. This is why it is recommended to stick with pure CBD oil…

Here is a short article (a comment really) that provides some general knowledge about CBD.

The objections to cannabis in our culture are most pronounced in the over 65 set. If CBD works as the anecdotes suggest, I expect that the objections to cannabis in that age group will decline markedly. Here is an article suggesting that such a decline may very well be underway.
