Cannabis is used in may different ways, from pain management to medical needs to general recreational fun. But it's also used in a new type of lubricant that is great for the bedroom. This blog post will explore the following:
- What is cannabis lube?
- What does it do?
- Does it have any of the psychoactive effects of cannabis that is smoked?
- What are the benefits of cannabis lube
What Is Cannabis Lube?
Cannabis lube is a type of sensual oil that is more of a sensual aid than an actual lubrication device to facilitate intercourse. While lubricant works immediately, cannabis lube takes 20 minutes to take effect. And, most importantly, cannabis lube cannot be used with latex, unlike water based lubricants. Most cannabis lubes are a blend of coconut oil and lab-tested cannabis oil. This creates a therapeutic aphrodisiac that is out of this world.
What Does Cannabis Lube Do
In technical terms, when applied to a woman's genitals, "THC is absorbed through the mucous membranes that are in high concentrations in a woman's vagina. Once applied and absorbed, THC acts locally on the cannabinoid receptors, much like an edible. Functionally, the THC dilates the capillaries and increases blood flow in the smallest blood vessels in our body—this enhanced microcirculation magnifies sensitivity and sensation." In other words, it creates better and more powerful orgasms. Everybody wins, rights?
Does Cannabis Lube Have Any Psychoactive Effects?
No. Cannabis lube will not get you high. Unlike smoking or ingesting an edible, the THC in cannabis oil does not absorb into the bloodstream. Instead, it emits sensations on the areas where it is applied, like most topical applications. That said, experts warn that, if ingested, it can have an impact (such as during oral sex). So make sure you read the bottle, and be careful with how much you ingest. Like most oils, the effect can be strong.
What Are The Benefits Of Cannabis Lube?
Well, the main benefit is increased pleasure and sexual satisfaction (more in women than in men, but it works for both genders). It feels good!
Though not specifically marketed toward women cannabis lubes enhance the vaginal experience more so than the penile. Once the lube is applied, it seeps into the vagina's mucus lining, resulting in several enjoyable sensations: users have reported tingling, warm, and relaxed feelings in their vaginal areas. Men might feel more of a numbing sensation, which can aid in lasting a little longer.
In addition, other effects preset in more regular forms of cannabis consumption do occur, including decreased stress and anxiety, enhanced mood, and an expanding mind. And, of course, all of these improve a connection between a couple, which leads to better, deeper and more loving sex.
So have a great, safe time this Valentine's Day. And, if you're feeling up for experiment with a little cannabis lubricant. We recommend vendors like Foria or Native Roots. But there are also many DIY recipes for those who want to make their own.
