Ladies: Cannabis Products for Better Sex are Here

Weed lubricants or “lubes” and other cannabis-infused sensual aids are on many women’s radars, not to mention going into their nightstand drawers.

But does cannabis really help with women’s sexual health and wellbeing?  Anecdotally, women say cannabis can:

  • reduce their stress that, in turn, can facilitate more pleasure.
  • enhance their creativity which could translate to a willingness to try new things.
  • lower inhibitions to get them “out of their head.”
  • increase hormonal production that could ‘open up’ emotions such as passion.
  • ease discomfort and pain, particular during and post menopause.
  • enhance physical sensitivity and sensation and potentially increasing orgasms or orgasm intensity.

Smoking, vaping or ingesting cannabis can have varied effects on women and that means the sex you experience while “high” can vary from one woman to the next as well as what you consume, how much you consume and how you consume it.

Weed lubes are topicals, applied either to the surface of or inside the vagina. THC is absorbed through vaginal mucous membranes of the vagina, and technically should not make you feel “high” but instead relax the lower portion of your body and increase blood flow to all parts of your vagina.

Take careful note that if you are using an oil-based lube, they are not compatible with latex or polyisoprene condoms and can degrade any rubber-based sexual aids or accessories. While no substance introduced with condoms is 100% safe for the integrity of the condom material, some product websites claim they should be okay to use with lambskin, polyurethane, or nitrile condoms. Be aware and careful when using any lubricant with any condom other than what comes on the condom itself.

Tips for Experiencing

Test Topicals First

When applying topicals, review the ingredients on the packaging carefully to ensure you aren’t allergic to any of them. Some may be unfamiliar – and cannabis may be an ingredient you haven’t applied topically before – so start with applying to a small area first to check for any adverse reactions. A good area to test is on your inner arm before applying to vaginal tissue. Check for swelling, redness, itching or burning. It can take up to 24 hours to react. Do not use any further if you experience an adverse reaction.

Start Low

If you are trying edibles or other ingestibles such as teas, use the rule: Start Low and Go Slow. Edibles take time to process through your digestive system and liver so don’t get impatient and consume more thinking you didn’t take enough. Tea and other liquids may take effect sooner than edibles. Depending on the dose, the effects can be subtle reaction to more stimulating effects.

With any cannabis or CBD product, one size doesn’t fit all meaning the effects will vary from person to person and based on everything from the dose to the situation and environment.
