Can’t get THC-infused edibles in your state? More and more manufacturers are making cannabidiol (CBD) versions of their normally THC medicated edibles because CBD is not psychoactive (and so can be shipped anywhere). How does CBD help when it comes to sex? First, CBD doesn’t get you “high”. Rather, CBD makes one feel more relaxed, less stressed, more balanced and, therefore, more open to feeling joyful and playful.
In today’s explosive (and hopefully orgasmic) edibles market, you really can have your THC, your CBD, have it in your cake and eat it next to your beloved too.
