Does CBD Affect Men and Women Differently?

When it comes to using modern medical practices to keep our bodies and minds health and happy, it can be tough to find the right solutions. CBD, though, is becoming an increasingly common product offered to people of all ages and lifestyles. If you are buying for a male and a female user, though, you might want to understand the differences. Some say that CBD impacts men and women differently. Is that the case? Let’s take a look and see for ourselves.

There is a difference in impact, yes

So, the first thing that has been agreed upon by scientific consensus is that CBD does impact people differently. This has been shown in clinical studies. The cannabinoids present within CBD will work differently in a male body versus a female body.

At the moment, though, the answer as to why this is the case is still up in the air. Some believe it comes down to the genetic make-up of each body, as well as differences in the endocannabinoid system for each gender. Others also believe that everything from the shape of our bodies to the lifestyle we lead and even our physical health can have a big impact.

Who gets the biggest benefit from CBD?

Studies at the moment seem to show that ladies get the most significant boost from using CBD products. Some believe this comes down to estrogen levels. This points to the fact that a women’s menstrual cycle could have a big influence on how their bodies utilise and then benefit from the intake of CBD products.

As hormone levels peak closer to ovulation, the endocannabinoid system in a female is shown to be increasingly sensitive. This allows the body to make the most of the positive impacts of CBD. For women who suffer from painful menstrual cramps, then, CBD can play a major role in reliving pain and discomfort during those periods.

However, it is important note to become too reliant on CBD. Some studies show that in large and regular doses that CBD can have a negative impact on sex drive and libido. For those looking to take CBD for pain relief, then, sticking to a smaller dose can still provide excellent benefits without potentially limiting your desire for a sex drive.

How do men utilise CBD?

Given men do not have the same process as the above, how their bodies use and work with CBD is quite different. For most men, it comes down to sensitivity improvement. Men are unlikely to find the same pain relief benefits – it will still help, but not to the same pronounced level as a female can enjoy – but it is also a little less likely to have the same negative impact on sex drive, at least not at a lower dosage.

However, while CBD seems to create a testosterone boost it is a short-term boost that is often followed by a dip. CBD, though, can still be excellent for guys looking to give their body a bit of relief from physical pain. If you work a physical job, it can be especially useful.


As you can see, then, CBD has a differing impact on the male and female body. Getting to grips with those differences is very important
