These days people are much more open minded when it comes to sexuality and the different means some use to improve their enjoyment of their sex life. While this applies to both men and women, it’s women in particular who are increasingly exploring what they can do to maximize the experience with their partner. Lubricants have been used for that purpose for decades, but a CBD lubricant is definitely a new and intriguing possibility.
It’s safe to assume that CBD is something that a good number of you may not be familiar with. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoids (active ingredients) in the cannabis plant, and as most of you will know cannabis is increasingly accepted – and legal – in North America. CBD is only ONE of the many cannabinoids in the plant, but most importantly it is not THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
That’s the one that’s responsible for getting people ‘high’ when they smoke marijuana, the dried flower product of the plant. CBD does NOT have these psychoactive and mind-altering capacities, so you can ingest it safely with no risk of feeling impaired. This is an important distinction to make.
CBD Lubricant Benefits
So what are the benefits of using a CBD lubricant for a woman? CBD has a proven ability to suppress the body’s pain responses. Which is why the primary aim for women using a CBD lubricant is to minimize pain during sex. This is a fairly common complaint for many women. CBD is a natural analgesic. When you apply the lubricant well before having sex it works very effectively to make intercourse less painful.
CBD also has the potential to reduce anxiety levels, and the other primary benefit of a CBD lubricant is that it can help women with anxiety levels that are so severe that they prevent her from fully participating in the lovemaking or having it be as pleasurable as it should be.
In addition, CBD lubricants are reported to reduce vaginal dryness for women by promoting greater natural fluid production.
Anyone shopping for the best CBD lubricant should do their own research, and follow the tried-and-true principle of ‘you get what you pay for’. The CBD lubricants will cost more than lower quality ones. Generally speaking these CBD lubricants will also be purer and not contain filler ingredients
THC CBD Lubricant
We can imagine that most women will choose a pure CBD lubricant as they want to avoid any type of intoxication. For some, however, the idea of experiencing heightened sensory perceptions and a pleasant ‘buzz’ while enjoying sex may wish to choose a THC CBD lubricant that contains both of the cannabinoids.
There are fewer of these products on the market as compared to pure CBD lubricants, but we can expect to see more of them in the future too.
