What does a CBD lube do?

How CBD Works for Your Pleasure

CBD lubricant is a relatively new product that has gained a lot of attention, and misinformation abounds. So here is a short guide for you on CBD and its use for botanical-based lubes.

What is lube?

A lubricant is a product that increases slipperiness and wetness, primarily on the genitalia during sex or masturbation, and is typically in a gel or oil base.

What is CBD?

In addition to THC, CBD is one of the most important active ingredients in the cannabis plant. When we speak of CBD, we are talking about two things:

  1. A part of the hemp plant;
  2. A chemical called Cannabidiol, not THC (the psychoactive component of the plant). In different products and cannabis flowers, THC and CBD ratios can be different; however, federal law requires products to contain less than 0.3% THC so they can be legally sold.

The human body naturally has cannabinoid receptors throughout the nervous system, brain and all over the body, this is known as an endocannabinoid system. This system is what helps give us a sense of well-being, safety, and balance (homeostasis), making Cannabis a very important plant for human health and regulating our responses to our environment and experiences.

Cannabis has a wide range of medicinal benefits and impacts people in different ways. It has an ancient role in native and indigenous practices, and now the medical industry is starting to study its benefits. We have learned over the years that cannabis can be a very useful tool for sexual health and can have a lasting positive impact on your sex life.

4 Reasons to Try CBD Lubes

#1. Pleasure and desire should drive everything we do.

Well-being is synonymous with pleasure. Do you enjoy your life? Do you value your work? Do you notice when your food tastes good or when you hear a beautiful sound? Do you find ways to do things you like every single day, even in the smallest ways?

Even though we may not all have the luxury of doing work we love or spending tons of time on self-care and pleasures, we can all find pleasure in our lives and make that the foundation for the choices we make.

CBD Lube is a product that can almost certainly improve your quality of life.  It can prolong foreplay and pleasure, facilitate experimentation, reduce period discomfort, eliminate vaginal dryness, and enhance emotional connection. Give yourself the chance to explore and discover all your pleasure potential with CBD lube!

#2. Lube makes sex better, and CBD lube makes sex even better.

No matter how much natural lubricant your body produces, using lube can allow for extended foreplay and sex, anal play and penetration, experimental fun with toys and kinks, or simply experiencing increased pleasure and less friction. It eliminates the potential stress of worrying about your body or your partner’s ability to produce lubrication. With that stress gone, you’re left with only unlimited pleasure potential. Add CBD to the mix and you’re doubling down.

#3. Cannabis communicates with the body’s own receptors and can help with sexual dysfunction and eliminate pain and inflammation.

Cannabis interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system we mentioned earlier. As a result, it influences our pain receptors, decreasing both physical pain and the signals that our body sends to our brain that we are hurt. Cannabis also interrupts our inflammatory responses, allowing for and promoting healthy blood flow and engorgement of our erectile tissues.

Additionally, our top-quality CBD Lubes contains several different medicinal plants as well such as:

  • Ginger
  • Helichrysum
  • Peppermint
  • Clary Sage
  • Cardamon, and more

As we focus not only on CBD but also on other plants’ healing properties, our products help relax your tissues, help reduce pain and enhance the impact of each individual plant’s properties.

#4. CBD and lube are a perfect match.

Cannabis is a fat-soluble plant that is best used in an oil base. Additionally, the mucosa of vaginal and anal tissues are some of the most receptive and sensitive on the body. If you are going to use a CBD lube, this is a great way to do it. Generally, cannabis oil is thought to have only a local effect on the genitalia. Just as you can taste garlic when you hold it in your hand, CBD lubes affect your entire system on an energetic and sensual level.

Are you convinced yet? We strongly recommend you use CBD lubes created by our friends at Toca Botanicals, made with potent extracts that will act quickly and effectively on your tissues for pleasure, play, and sexploration. Use code HARNESS10 for 10% of your order!
