CBD Oil and Sex: Everything You Need to
Know About CBD Lubes

CBD is everywhere. A 2019 poll found that 1 in 7 American adults use CBD products. There are CBD products to help with everything from anxiety to sleep to pain relief—so why not sex?

Before you learn our CBD lube tips, we want to explain to you what CBD oil is. CBD oil has become a popular topic lately. You’ve probably heard about it, and you may have even seen it being sold in stores.

But what is CBD oil, exactly? CBD oil is a type of oil that is derived from hemp, (cannabis sativa), also called industrial hemp, a plant of the family cannabaceae cultivated for its bast fibre, or its edible oil derived from the seeds. CBD oil is made by extracting it from the cannabis plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil.

CBD oil has a number of potential benefits, including reducing anxiety, relieving pain, reducing inflammation, even for enhancing sex. It is also effective in treating seizures. CBD oil is non-psychoactive, meaning that it does not get you high.

Curious about how CBD lube can help you? Read on to find out all about CBD lubes!

What Is CBD Lube?

CBD lubes are simply lubricants infused with cannabidiol—and they are quickly becoming some of the most popular products on the market. CBD is a non-intoxicating product of the cannabis plant, so it provides many of the advantages of cannabis without the psychoactive qualities and negative side effects.

How Can CBD Lube Help?

Regular lube can help with a number of issues people may face during sex, especially dryness, pain, or vaginal discomfort. Just imagine how much CBD lube can boost your sex life!

CBD lube can decrease tension in the pelvic floor and provide a relaxing sensation to help alleviate sexual anxiety. As long as it's oil- or water-based, CBD lube can act as an anti-inflammatory and prevent irritation.

Not only can CBD lube minimize pain and alleviate feelings of anxiety, but it may also lead to increased sensitivity in the body's erogenous areas—it's no wonder that it has also reportedly led to better orgasms.

How to Use It?

CBD lube can be used like regular lube, but it has the most benefit when used directly on the vagina or anus rather than the penis. The mucous membranes in those areas allow the CBD to absorb better.

To apply, simply rub it on and around the clitoris and pay attention to the inner and outer labia. Be sure to only apply the lube externally. Even though some lubes state they’re gentle enough, it should never be applied inside vagina as this can increase the risk for infections and discomfort. Beware of lubes that dry up too fast, as they will result in a very uncomfortable ‘chafing’ experience. In general, users should not experience any pain that comes with penetration.

As CBD is non-intoxicating, users may experience a pleasant feeling, but it won’t cause a high.

Can You Use CBD Oil as Lube?

It may seem like CBD oil, and CBD lube could be interchangeable. However, unlike oils, CBD lubes are specifically designed for genital use. Using inappropriate products could negatively impact genital health by disrupting the natural balance of bacteria.

Additionally, using oil or oil-based lubes instead of water-based lubes can affect latex condoms, breaking down the latex surface and causing them to tear or break.

All in all, it's better to stick to lubes rather than oils, to get the most out of your products and keep your body healthy and safe.

Does CBD Lube Get You High?

The answer is no.

THC is the component of cannabis that causes a high, and it is generally completely absent in CBD lubes. Even though some lubes contain small amounts of THC, it's very unlikely to cause the user to get high—especially since you're not ingesting it.

Although you likely won't get high from using CBD lube, it still offers some great benefits. Users have reported a rise in orgasms, increased relaxation, and pain relief after using CBD lubes.

Finding the Right CBD Lube

With so many lubes out there, it can be hard to figure out which kind is best. When deciding which lube is right for you, you should consider the brand's reputability, oil-based vs. water-based lube, scented vs. unscented lubes (scented lubes may contain irritating colors and fragrances) and you should check the product's ingredients and consult with a doctor before use if needed.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
