Performance anxiety in the bedroom can affect anyone. The reality is, while sex is good fun, it can also be a little daunting at times — especially when you're doing it with someone new. Cannabidiol (or CDB) products have been massively popular in the U.S. for their relaxing properties, and now you can get them here in the UK too. So, if you're feeling a little nervy, these are five CBD products to use in the bedroom that you may want to try out.

According to the BBC, CBD is a non-psychoactive ingredient that can come from cannabis. While researchers are still working hard to establish the exact effects of CBD, there have been suggestions that it can reduce anxiety and stress, and heighten sexual pleasure.

Some CBD products have been legal in the UK since the government relaxed its rules on cannabis-based health products in 2018, according to The Week. The magazine reported that an estimated 300,000 people in the UK are now regularly using CBD oil for a number of health conditions including anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain. George Thomas set up George Botanicals, a company selling CBD-based products, two years ago and in a statement sent to Bustle he said: “In the UK, we are only just waking up to the potential of the cannabis oil market. We are years behind the Americans. In California, for example, this year the value of cannabis-derived products is set to exceed that of beer sales.”

So, here are the five best CBD products to use in the bedroom.

1. Intimate CBD Massage Oil

Intimate CBD Massage Oil mixes CBD oil, almond oil, and vitamin E, which will leave your skin feeling seriously soft. Working in a similar way to many other massage oils, the CBD in the product increases tactile sensation, reduces physical tension, and can be used all over the body. The aroma it gives off is incredibly relaxing and will leave you feeling completely pampered.
