Could cannabis kick Big Pharma out of the bedroom? Lighting up can boost libido, fight erectile dysfunction


(NaturalNews) A survey conducted by California medical marijuana company, HelloMD, found that of the 1,400 patients who participated in the survey, 14 percent of them experienced libido-boosting benefits as a result of their marijuana-smoking behaviors.

While the majority of the company's patients turn to medical marijuana to help manage their chronic pain, improve sleep and treat mood problems, there were those who said it improved satisfaction in the bedroom. New York City sex therapist, Dr. Ian Kerner, notes that people often turn to cannabis to heighten their sexual experiences, especially if a partner has problems with erectile dysfunction (ED).

"For men who I work with who suffer from erectile disorder, smoking pot before they have sex can really help them relax and maintain erection," says Kerner. He also adds that women who turn to marijuana prior to or during sexual activity have found that it helps them to become more aroused and "... to reach orgasm," adding that "parts of the brain associated with stress, anxiety and high emotion deactivate," when smoking pot enters the picture. Furthermore, he adds that senses are heightened; touch in particular is intensified, often making sex more enjoyable among cannabis users.

While he does say that each person's experience with smoking cannabis differs, and that in some cases, it can make a person's bedroom activities filled with anxiety, it's typically associated with a positive outcome.

Cannabis can help improve sexual satisfaction, yet Big Pharma's harmful pills remain a multi-billion dollar industry

So, once again, cannabis comes forward as a natural way to benefit people. Of course, in this particular instance we're talking about sexual activity and boosting libido, something that is a billion-dollar industry for Big Pharma. From Viagra to the more recent advent of what's been dubbed "pink Viagra for women," the pharmaceutical industry is profiting big-time from sexual disorders, focusing primarily on ED or those who have a waning interest in sexual activity.

In fact, over 30 million men are estimated to use Viagra. Let's not forget that other ED-related brands infiltrate the marketplace, including Cialis, Levitra and others. Pill-popping in the name of helping people become more satisfied between the sheets is undoubtedly a big deal, with many individuals wanting to be able to overcome ED issues and/or perform sexually well into their senior years.

While jokes and conversations have run the gamut ranging from Hugh Hefner's abilities to friends who may discuss the benefits of ED-improving drugs, the reality is that – like most things Big Pharma has its hands in – health problems have been known to occur. For example, less than 10 years after Viagra launched, the brand was linked with leading to vision loss in some people.

Such drugs have also been associated with recreational use, with may people taking these pills in conjunction with other drugs like meth, opioids and ecstasy.

Even athletes have been said to use such swelling-inducing drugs inappropriately, claiming that it helps improve blood vessel and muscle function, and in turn, improve performance.

Why turn to prescription drugs to boost libido when cannabis does the same thing – safely?

Another problem comes on the emotional front, with drugs like Cialis and Viagra not having the ability to resolve relationship troubles, despite the fact that couples may be sexually satisfied. People often link the two, assuming that when everything goes well in the bedroom, it can magically improve non-sexual issues. Unfortunately, that's not true, yet people still flock to these drugs hoping that it'll do everything from maintain erections to maintain strong relationships.

Instead of accomplishing that, people are foolishly spending their money, jeopardizing their physical and mental health, and supporting a greedy, multi-billion dollar industry.

Time and again, cannabis has been found to help people overcome a range of problems, without the horrible side effects that are par for the course when it comes to Big Pharma's pills. Cannabis has even helped sick individuals turn their terminal cancer diagnoses around. It's healed people who were ill from excessive chemo treatments. It can help improve ED and overall sexual satisfaction, too.

Why would anyone choose health-harming drugs over something so natural and safe?
