Love Yourself With Cannabis: THC

“Weed lubes” are cannabis-infused sensual aids that are enhancing sex and bringing relief to women, particularly during peri-menopause and menopause. But where do you get them?

“Weed lubes” – lubricants or sprays – are THC- or CBD-infused topical products that are 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.” Instead, intra-vaginally applied THC relaxes the lower portion of your body, increasing blood flow to all parts of your vagina.

When it comes to sexual pleasure, blood flow to your nether regions is key.

How can cannabis lubricants help with women’s sexual health and wellbeing?

Anecdotally, women say cannabis:

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

Safety Note: 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.

If the lube you’re considering has THC, you most likely will not find it beyond a single state, possibly two, depending on how the manufacturer is licensed. In California, you can purchase THC products through delivery services like Sava in the Bay Area. In other markets where delivery of THC products is not legal, you can find many of them in local licensed cannabis dispensaries.

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.
