What a time to be sexually alive in Canada! With the recent legalization of weed, we’re all discovering that there’s a whole lot more to the not-so-humble cannabis plant than we thought, especially when it comes to intimacy. Hemp-based ingredients can be extremely beneficial in sex lubes, lotions and massage oils. Oh, and to get this out of the way right from the start: there’s no need to worry about getting all Dazed & Confused because the only high you’ll be getting from these products is a heavenly orgasm and a satisfied partner.
What is CBD and Hemp Oil?
Worried about getting stoned from CBD or hemp-based lubes and lotions? If so, you're not alone! This is a common concern from those who don’t “puff the magic dragon.” The answer is most definitely NO. If someone told you this, they are either pulling your leg or are extremely uneducated about the products. CBD and hemp can actually be extremely beneficial in all sorts of ways. Science and numerous studies have shown that CBD oil, for instance, can reduce pain, improve depression and anxiety, alleviate cancer-related symptoms, reduce acne and potentially improve heart health. Bottom line: hemp and CBD based body products do not contain THC, which is the 'high factor' you might be worried about. Don't be.
For a little botanical background, here's the difference between CBD and hemp - hemp is a strain of the cannabis plant, and CBD is a product derived from hemp. Hemp (and the CBD extracted from it) have very, very low concentrations of THC, and will not, we repeat, will not get you high. When it comes to lubricants, there really isn’t a huge difference between how they make you feel in bed- they do the same sexy thing; make you wet!
Okay, okay, no one's here for a science lesson, so with that, let’s get buzzed on some exciting information on how hemp can amp up your bedroom/living room/kitchen table vibe.
A Joint Sensation
So, after doing a bit of reading, and a lot of testing, I have come up with some key points as to why CBD and/or hemp oil is an amazing addition to a lubricant. All of my reasons may not apply to your desires, but we believe that they relate to some common sex conundrums.
Have you ever entered into a super sexy scenario and found that your head’s just not in the game? It happens to the best of us and can really put a damper on the vibe. There is an easy solution to this problem, CBD or hemp oil-based lubes. These products may help alleviate anxiety and/or discomfort, which are things that you may experience before or during sex. When applied topically, a hempseed based lube can help dilate blood vessels, allowing fresh oxygenated blood to flow more easily. Typically, fresh oxygenated blood is associated with increased arousal and stimulation. It sounds like A + B = C. A simple and calculated orgasm solution.
It's completely natural not to be horny 24/7. Our bodies are not designed to plough for hours on end. But if you are feeling a little less sex forward than usual, hemp-infused lubes and oils can help improve low libido by strengthening your sexual sensations. When it comes to vagina owners, the cannabinoid receptors are found in the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina and vulva, and they play an essential role in the everyday pleasures of sex. These products increase blood flow to the tissue which helps increase sensitivity and promote natural lubricants. The takeaway? Hemp-based lubes can help ensure your gears are greased!
Foreplay is a necessary component of sex. Stimulation before the main event can sometimes be stressful because, for one reason or another, you just aren’t getting wet. CBD and hemp oil lube can help take your parts from dry to (metaphorically!) high in the wink of an eye.
In this day and age, it is important to support the use of all-natural products. The amazing thing about CBD and hemp oil lubes and oils is that they're made from mostly native ingredients. You don’t need to worry about the addition of unpronounceable chemicals being added to the ingredients list, because many of the ingredients can most likely be grown in your backyard.
