As hemp manufacturers, we absolutely love that CBD is making its way into everyday items like bath bombs and dog treats. It’s also been a staple for personal lubricants as a way to ease discomfort and relax individuals looking for ways to improve their sexual experiences. But what do CBD oil-based personal lubricants even do? How do they work? Should you try it for yourself?
First, let’s discuss personal lubricants in general. Even if you’re not one of the many who experience pain during sex or vaginal dryness, having a little extra moisture can help make sex a little more fun. Adding lubricant to your sexual experiences can make it smoother and enhance pleasure.
Keep reading as we discuss why people love CBD oil-based personal lubricants.
Why People Love CBD Oil-Based Personal Lubricant
It’s 2022, and there seems to be nothing that CBD products can’t solve. If you’re feeling nervous, a hemp cigarette can calm your mind. Sore muscle after a hard workout? CBD muscle cream can do wonders. Want to enhance your sexual experience? CBD lube might be exactly what you’re looking for. So let’s answer some basic questions we get all the time about lube enhanced with cannabidiol.
How Does CBD Lube Work?
CBD personal lubricant is made using CBD hemp oil, potentially decreasing discomfort, increasing blood flow, and promoting relaxation.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant, the part that doesn’t make you high. However, when used in lube form, it can increase sexual sensations, as it is known to widen the veins to bring more blood flow to the area. In addition, CBD might have anti-inflammatory effects and can ease anxiety. If you’re a woman dealing with vestibulitis and vaginismus, talk to your doctor about CBD oil-based personal lubricant. It might alleviate some of the discomforts that accompany sex.
Note that we use “may” or “potential” frequently. There is no hard proof that using CBD in your private areas will have the effects you’re looking for. Research is being conducted often, and though we have a medical director on our staff at Pacific Roots, we don’t claim to be doctors and can’t prescribe you anything.
Another thing we should mention is that CBD dosing is very subjective. There’s not a lot of evidence about how much CBD actually gets absorbed through the mucous membranes, so accurate dosing remains up to the user. Start low and slow when it comes to using lubricant — the same advice we would give to those taking CBD orally.
Are you wondering about potential side effects? Don’t worry; as far as side effects go, CBD is considered safe. Even if you feel like you’ve used or taken too much, the most you’ll experience is drowsiness, which will go away after a few hours.
We suggest applying a small amount of lubricant to yourself or your partner to enhance natural moisture. Then, reapply as desired for extra glide.
Our CBD oil-based personal lubricant is not intended for use with latex, as it could cause latex products to tear. Immediately discontinue using CBD lubricant if you feel any sort of reaction. If you have a medical condition or are pregnant, ask your healthcare professional before using CBD. Keep out of reach of children.
How To Choose The Best CBD Lube
The first thing you should do before diving in and buying CBD pleasure products is check in with your doctor. CBD combined with certain medications might change your blood levels, and it’s better to be safe than sorry when trying new health and wellness products.
If you have sensitive skin, it might be a good idea to patch test the lubricant you’re interested in using. Then, before you try it on your sensitive areas, apply some of your chosen lube to your arm to make sure you’re not allergic — just like you would with any new skincare product. Also, make sure you check the ingredients list of the lube you want to try, as some added ingredients can irritate your skin.
As you choose a CBD company to order from, make sure you look for complete transparency. CBD is still considered a gray area as the cannabis plants slowly become legal so look for a company that does third-party testing and doesn’t hide its ingredients list.
