Here’s What You Need To Know About Personal Lube With CBD Oil
CBD is now in everything from dog biscuits to bath bombs, so it was only a matter of time before CBD made its way into the bedroom and your sex life. The question is whether personal lube with CBD oil will do anything and if you should use them.
Let’s discuss personal lubricants in general. If you don’t suffer from vaginal dryness or discomfort during sex, lubricants can make your experience more enjoyable. Here we dive into what you need to know about personal lube with CBD oil and reasons why you might try it today!
Why Try Personal Lube With CBD Oil
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. CBD doesn’t get you high like the well-known compound THC. In truth, legal hemp-derived products have little to no THC in them at all.
While there isn’t much research out on CBD lubes quite yet, it might be worth talking to your physician about whether or not a CBD lubricant can be beneficial to you (or if using a personal lube with CBD oil will interfere with any of your current prescriptions).
For some people, CBD lubricant might be the perfect solution to address issues they face in the bedroom. Indeed, CBD is thought to increase blood flow, and potentially even help with muscle relaxation. Combined, these things might mean that CBD-infused lubricants are a reliable option for those who suffer from discomfort during intimacy.
Read on as we discuss how CBD lube works.
How Does CBD Lube Work?
To start, we want to say that CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found primarily in the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant, and it WON’T get you high. However, it may increase your sensation levels during intimacy, as CBD has been said to increase blood flow and ease discomfort.
Like with any lubricant, it helps add more moisture and decrease friction while potentially providing a more relaxing experience. We say potential because there really isn’t enough research out there yet to officially prove that personal lube with CBD oil can enhance your sexual experiences. Though we definitely agree that this issue requires more attention, make sure you do your own research to see if CBD in the bedroom is a good choice for you.
In addition, CBD dosing is also a little complicated, as the amount one should take varies on several factors and is different from person to person. Everyone absorbs CBD at different levels, so there isn’t a hard and fast dosage rule. Our advice is always to start low and go slow. You can also use more products or take more CBD as needed.
Another thing we should mention, though, to people looking to add CBD to their routine is that there really aren’t many side effects, no matter how much you take. The main thing that people who report taking “too much” CBD is that they feel drowsy. You don’t have to worry about “overdosing,” but if you have additional questions or are worried about the effects, talk to your doctor before you try!
Though rising in popularity and attention worldwide, CBD and hemp products are still generally considered to be a gray area. Start with an honest company in what they use and what goes into their manufacturing process. And, of course, always double-check their certificate of analysis, as those documents will be able to tell you without a doubt how much CBD is in their products and if a reputable company tested them.
Can You Just Use Any CBD Oil As Lube?
While searching for personal lubricants to use during your most intimate moments, we recommend staying away from those products that contain unnecessary chemicals and artificial scents. Oil-based lubricants might degrade the latex in condoms, so you might consider opting for a water-based lubricant. At Pacific Roots, we have both!
You don’t want to just go and grab any CBD oil off the shelf and try to use it as a personal lubricant. Oil not intended for topical use can degrade condoms and cause skin irritations or negatively affect.
Like any product intended for use in the bedroom, we recommend researching before you buy. You want to buy from a reputable company that isn’t afraid of listing their ingredients or providing certificates of analysis for all of their products. You want your lube to compliment your experience, not take away from it, so take a little time to make sure you know what’s in it before trying it out.
CBD and Sex – Is It Worth It?
Though we are a little biased, we think yes! Of course, our clients have their own unique reasons for using CBD in the bedroom, but we’ve heard several reports back about how our products increased relaxation and blood flow. As a counterpart, magnesium can also aid in the regulation of blood pressure, and our pleasure suppositories might be what you’re looking for.
When using CBD suppositories, we suggest inserting them about 30 minutes before sex. Additionally, you might find our suppositories helpful after intercourse to reduce discomfort and encourage muscle relaxation. However, you should NOT use any latex protection or latex products in conjunction with Pacific Roots CBD suppositories, as the oils might break them down.
With our personal lubricants, you can apply just before or even during your sexual experience. As a result, our customers have noticed less discomfort, increased blood flow, and a sense of calm.
What Pacific Roots CBD Pleasure Products Are Available?
Pacific Roots has multiple pleasure products that you will love when you’re ready to elevate your private moments.
First, try our excellent selection of CBD personal lubricants, both of which contain 100mg of active CBD. Our water-based lubricant is made from full-spectrum CBD and can be used safely with latex-based condoms. You can also try our oil-based lubricant, which also is made with full-spectrum CBD but should not be paired with condoms, as the oil might break them down.
We also invite you to try our CBD pleasure suppositories that contain 75mg of active CBD along with 25mg of magnesium to enhance your pleasure and make your intimate moments even more satisfying. This line of suppositories is made from full-spectrum CBD, which means it contains the legal amount of THC (less than 0.3%).
