Amazing Facts About CBD Oil Lubricants

It seems everywhere we shop there are products boasting CBD enhancements. The growing popularity of these goods has overtaken almost every consumer industry you can imagine, including in the bedroom. If you have heard about CBD lube, but never tried it, or if this is the first time you learned it exists, you may find your curiosity peaked. If you have considered trying an enhanced lube or want to learn more about what they can do, here are some amazing facts you should know.  

It’s an Oil-Based Lubricant

When we think of sex lube, we think of the water-soluble jellies that are mainstays in our favorite drugstores and shopping centers. CBD lubricants come in the form of sprays and lubricating oils you can apply with your hands and are oil-based. This means the product isn’t thick and heavy like a gel, but thin and light on your skin.

Just like their water-based counterparts, CBD intimacy oils combat vaginal dryness with its natural properties that encourage increased blood flow to where it is topically applied. Another difference you will notice while using this type of lubricant is it takes longer to work and times vary between 10 to 20 minutes for you to feel it.

You Won’t Smell Like a Skunk

We all know that distinctive pungent aroma of cannabis in the air and may worry that our lady bits will smell the same if we use weed lube. Thankfully you have no reason to worry as CBD oil is derived from hemp and has little to no smell or taste that will make you offputting during sex. Most users mention a very light herbal aroma that’s barely noticeable.

CBD Lubricants Lowers Anxiety and Stress

While having sex isn’t a complicated process, the act itself requires a lot of care and attention because there are at least two bodies involved, and they need to collaborate. These lubes helps this process by minimizing feelings of nervousness or pressure with its chemical reactions with our nervous systems. By naturally enhancing blood flow and calming the nerve receptors through topical application, sexual activity has fewer inhibitions.

No High by Applying CBD Lube to Your Genitals

A lot of people wonder about the possibility of getting high because of the oil coming into direct contact with their genitals. Generally, the answer is no unless you use an edible version that also contains THC. Combined product types may give you some kind of psychoactive reaction because your body is metabolizing the THC in the product, not the CBD.

With that said, some women claim their vaginas feel “high,” but this is purely a physical feeling in the applied area of the lube. CBD has an incredible effect on blood vessels, which leads to swelling and heightens a woman’s sensitivity during sex. Before deciding on the product you want to use, determine if you plan to use a THC or CBD intimacy oil, or if you want a product that offers both.

Helps to Relieve Painful Sex

Painful sex is a common experience for many women, and there are not a lot of options to treat it. Luckily CBD lubes help to not only lubricate a woman’s sexual organs but increases blood flow to increase pleasurable sensitivity and intensity of climax. By stimulating natural lubrication in this way, intercourse is less painful and smoother. This is good news for women who experience menopause but don’t want to slow down their sex life.

Speaking of Climax

While CBD lubes increase the female body’s response to stimulation, it doesn’t work on its own. Infused lubricants serve the purpose of enhancing your sexual experience, so your partner still needs to know what how to bring you over the top. Improving your orgasm is possible with the right combination of lubrication and skill.

Not Everyone Responds to CBD Oil Lubricants

How a good CBD lube affects your partner may vary. While women seem to enjoy the biggest benefit from these intimacy products, not all experiences are alike. This seems especially true when evaluating response during intercourse versus masturbation.  Some found that only using the oil for penetrative sex didn’t yield as amazing results as applying it on their outer genital area first.

CBD Oil Lubes Break Latex

As mentioned earlier, CBD lubricants are oil-based, and this means it will naturally break down condoms causing unexpected breakage. Having sex without a condom brings significant risks like unplanned pregnancy and/or the transmission of STDs and STIs between you and your partner. There are some water-based CBD lubes available, as well as some silicone variations, but unlike oils, they come with drawbacks. Water-based lubes need frequent reapplication because they dry out quickly, and silicon lubricants tend to stain and damage silicone toys.

Treatment of Mild Skin Problems

Skin irritations are a normal part of our lives. Bug bites, scrapes, scratches, and burns are uncomfortable, and cannabis creams relieve pain at the site of the injury while reducing painful swelling. Certain salves and ointments also include antibacterial features too. Like with any product, use caution when applying as every cannabis product has a different formula.

Pain Management

Cannabinoids in lotion products will bind to specific receptors in your body to bring fast relief of certain types of muscular and joint pain. These products are directly applied to the skin and begin to calm down your pain radiating nerve endings related to your sore spots.

Since these type of products don’t enter your bloodstream, you won’t experience any drug high effects. This means you can use this product as often as you want.

Sexual Enhancement

It isn’t a surprise that cannabis is an aphrodisiac which has now found its way into our bedrooms. Weed lubes are topical and are infused with plant oils to increase the stimulation of the genitals and encourage natural lubrication. The natural increase of blood flow gets further enhanced by the beneficial circulatory properties of THC and CBD. Remember that oil-based lubricants do not tolerate latex, so discuss other protection options if you don’t pick a water-based lube for your play.

Calms Psoriasis

Similar to its effect on minor skin irritations, cannabis lotion products can also bring some small relief to people living with psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin condition that is often painful due to the body’s constant buildup of excess skin cells. Many who live with psoriasis and use these products say that they experience less severe episodes after regular application.

Millions of people live with the agonizing and debilitating pain of arthritis. Arthritic pain symptoms range from swelling and inflammation in the joints to chronic pain that requires managed care. This makes topical cannabis products an ideal treatment option because of it’s anti-inflammatory features. By directly affecting specific pain receptors in our bodies, using a daily lotion to fight swelling makes sense.

Cannabis infused products that focus on pain relief will also help to ease some of the discomfort associated with these types of injuries including inflammation. A quality topical product utilizing the natural properties of this plant could bring quick relief.

Antibacterial Properties

Bacterial skin infections have developed immunities to many types of modern-day drug treatments. When trying to find a more natural remedy to treat your skin infection, consider the antibacterial properties found in cannabis and how an infused product may help.

Cannabis Topicals for Therapeutic Massages

The use of massage to deal with sore muscles and inflammation is always a great choice of treatment. This is due to massage therapists targeting pain receptors to bring significant relief of muscle pain, joint stiffness, and spasms. Now, imagine using a weed-infused cream or salve in conjunction with massage therapy. This combination of treatment options opens doors for patients who suffer from sports injuries, neuropathy, or fibromyalgia.

Nine Benefits of Combining Cannabis with Chocolate

Buy Chocolate Edibles Online

As far back as 450 BC, chocolate was being cultivated and used by Mesoamerican tribes in celebrations and medicinal practice. The Aztec civilization believed that cacao seeds (from which chocolate is produced) were the gift of Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom and were at one point so valuable they were used as currency. Some 3 thousand years before that, cannabis was discovered and shared for its own pharmacological properties throughout Central Asia. Only recently have we begun to understand on a biological level why cannabis and chocolate have played such important roles in many cultures as medicine and as ceremonial sacraments.

The Endocannabinoid System

In order to understand both cannabis’ (and chocolate’s) effects on the brain and body, you must understand the endocannabinoid system. When researchers were looking to discover how and why marijuana affected users, they uncovered that its active chemical compounds such as THC and CBD mimic neurotransmitters naturally created in the body. Neurotransmitters are molecules that regulate various functions in the body by turning specific responses on or off. The endocannabinoid system is composed of a series of neurotransmitters and their corresponding receptor cells that regulate functions such as pain, mood, memory, appetite, fertility and pregnancy.

As the endocannabinoid system is a complex network, researchers are still discovering and proving the chemical effects of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids inherent within cannabis. Nevertheless, science has managed to isolate several effects (link to article explaining effects) that each one produces. Chocolate, coincidentally, acts on many of the same receptor sites while also having some nifty chemical properties of its own:

Anandamide is one of two main endogenous cannabinoids the body naturally produces, and it helps to stimulate brain function. By supporting the creation of new cells in the brain, it has been shown to have an anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effect. The word anandamide comes from the Sanskrit word ‘ananda,’ meaning ‘bliss’. It is literally the ‘bliss molecule’, which explains many peoples’ attachment to chocolate.

Theobromine, the most concentrated chemical in chocolate acts similarly to caffeine as a stimulant. It decreases inflammation by the inhibiting certain enzymes and activating others. It also helps to reduce blood pressure, open the airways, remove toxins and increase cognitive function.

Phenylethylamine acts also as a stimulant by facilitating the release of serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitters. Some chemists observe its effects to be similar to that of a ‘runner’s high’.

Combination Benefits

Seeing the pharmacological value that both cannabis and chocolate play, it’s obvious that combining the two can have some amazing benefits:

Synergistic effect

As cannabis and chocolate’s main chemicals touch on the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain, adding chocolate in with cannabis is literally adding another cannabinoid into the mix. Often in the marijuana industry companies talk about the entourage effect, a synergy that occurs as the result of ingesting a full spectrum cannabis supplement. As each molecule has slightly different properties, you are getting each one’s benefits combined into one powerful medicine.

Increases Pleasure

The endocannabinoid system, when stimulated, temporarily inhibits GABA neurons that inhibit dopamine from being released. Dopamine is the ‘feel-good molecule’ that many associate with reward, motivation and pleasure. Combining chocolate with weed allows more dopamine to be released. That means a longer, more enjoyable experience.

Relieves Inflammation and Pain

As we said before, chocolate’s theobromine is a potent anti-inflammatory. In addition to cannabinoids, cannabis also contains terpenoids, chemicals found in many essential oils that also have anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive (pain-relieving) effects. If you are in pain or inflamed, combining chocolate with cannabis can help ease symptoms.

Menstrual Symptom Relief

Many women swear by chocolate as a relief from cramps thanks to its magnesium content but warn that eating too much may increase bloating and unwanted calories. The good news is that cannabis can also help relieve cramps, menstrual pain, and help soothe mood swings.

Anti-stress, Anti-depressant

Studies have shown that cannabis and chocolate both reduce stress and can lift depression. Combining the two means you can once again take advantage of the synergies between them to enjoy a greater sense of well-being.

Potent Aphrodisiac

Studies show that neither cannabis nor chocolate are seen to have a direct influence on sexual desire—there is no magic potion for physical attraction yet. Nevertheless, by relieving stress and pain and by increasing feel-good chemicals in the brain, chocolate and marijuana can be used to enhance sexual pleasure for two people who share a connection.

Cognitive Benefits

While many cannabis users may report minor cognitive impairment, chocolate’s theobromine and flavanol content stimulate cognition and can likely offset the short-term disadvantages of cannabis.

Control Appetite

Dark chocolate has been shown in studies to curb appetite. The theory is that its bitter flavor suppresses ghrelin, the ‘hunger hormone’ that increases appetite and promotes fat storage. This is good news for anyone who loses willpower thanks to the munchies. The good news is, users of marijuana report healthier weights than the average non-user. Who knew?

Rich in Antioxidants

Both cannabis and chocolate contain antioxidants. These chemicals help prevent free radicals from damaging cells. Free radicals are molecules created when you breathe in oxygen through your lungs to be metabolized into the blood stream. These free radicals can cause damage to the DNA and cell membranes of various tissues in the body. By protecting against free radicals, antioxidants can help to fight cancer and help to slow or prevent other forms of disease.

Conclusion

Chocolate and cannabis alone have served medical and ceremonial purpose for thousands of years. Thanks to the research of scientists today, we can finally understand why each possesses several chemicals that serve the body and mind in helping to relieve pain and stress and increasing our capacity to enjoy life. And we can enjoy the benefits of combining them both.
