If you’re reading this, you already know we’re fans of all things CBD. This time, we’re tackling a new idea that ends in the bedroom, and it may be the most fun way to use CBD yet. Who’s with us on that?! We’re up for the debate.
CBD is short for cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive chemical in the cannabis plant. CBD doesn’t get you high, so if you thought you were about to learn what it’s like to get your vagina high– well that’s kind of out of our wheelhouse. But hey, if you read ahead about what CBD does do for your vajayjay, you just might slide into our DM’s to thank us later.
So let’s get down to the nitty gritty; lube has officially jumped on the CBD bandwagon. And we’re not mad about it. Here’s why:
CBD lube can aid with a number of different V struggles, as it decreases inflammation, and promotes muscle relaxation. If you struggle from either vaginismus, vaginitis, PCOS, or vaginal tearing that occurs as a result of giving birth, CBD lube can actually help ease the pain, or discomfort that stems from those complications.
Stepping away from the lube for a moment (sorry, we promise we’ll pick it up again in a second) CBD is also known to be very beneficial for people experiencing PTSD from sexual trauma. For this use, CBD is best used in tincture form.
Remember to go easy: Using too much lube can run you the risk of dulling sensation–something you most definitely don’t want to have happen. Use the product sparingly at first, and work your way towards a heavier amount judging its potency.
CBD is a vasodilator. In other words, it increases blood flow while helping with muscle relaxation. As a result, it’s effective at inducing arousal. We suggest also using a lil’ CBD lube before sex to seriously get you in the mood, just in time.
This muscle relaxation quality is also what makes many CBD-infused lubricants a reliable aid for women who suffer from pain during intercourse.
Period the end. Is there a better reason to invest in some CBD lube? *In our best Joey voice* This one just might top our charts. CBD lube is rumoured to intensify sensations down there during the deed, leading to slower, more intense orgasms. On the topic of slow, some guys claim to last longer because of it. A win-win, truly.
Do you find yourself getting too caught up ‘in your own head’ during the deed? Aside from just the physical effects, some women say that CBD lube helps them focus on their body rather than their distracting thoughts, leading to easier climaxes.
Still unsure about taking the leap to CBD in your bedside lube? Talking to your physician before trying one out, just in case.
