August 8th is National CBD Day (did you know such a thing existed?!) and as you’ve probably noticed, products with cannabidiol (also known as CBD) are everywhere right now, promising everything from decreasing your anxiety to helping with pain. While there’s no solid research on this yet, if you take a look at reviews from some of the CBD products that are currently on the market, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that some people are having luck with it. One such area is sexual wellness, where there are a variety of CBD products available that aim to help everything from painful sex to low libido.
Even without scientific research or proof the effectiveness of the CBD ingredients of any of these items truly work, since most of these are also lubes or massage oils, even if you don’t get the desired effect from the CBD, it can still make things a little better in the bedroom (because good lube can be the key to great sex for a lot of us!). And we found a few products that use CBD to help improve your sexual experience. If you haven’t tried CBD yet but are curious, consider one of these:
Coconu Body Oil with CBD
Silky and lightweight, this 100% natural body oil is perfect for foreplay or an intimate massage. USDA certified organic coconut oil plus 150mg of broad-spectrum CBD (derived from domestic hemp) makes for a soothing, nourishing body oil that can increase sensation and ease tension.
If you try one CBD product to enhance your sex life, make it this one from Foria. This spray isn’t a lube, but a multi-aphrodisiac blend designed to enhance tactile sensation and pleasure for people with vulvas while decreasing tension, discomfort and dryness. It smells amazing (like mint and chocolate) and is edible. Most important, though, there are countless testimonials on the Foria site from users who have had their sex lives transformed by this product because it relaxes them, helps with pelvic pain or makes their orgasms stronger or last longer.
Kush Queen Ignite CBD lube
This paraben-free, petrochemical-free, latex-compatible and nonstaining lube is a high-quality lube with a nice dose of CBD. Reviewers noted that it works well for anal play.
Privy Peach personal lubricant
Yes, this is another lube with CBD in it, but this one’s a bit different. First, it comes in individual packets, which isn’t just handy for cleanup, but also provides you with the ideal dose of CBD. It’s also a semisolid at room temperature and then melts into a liquid with your body heat, creating another enjoyable sensation.
Bella Aqua D’Amore
This water-based CBD lube was designed to help you relax and increase blood flow to maximize your sexual experience. And starting at just $12, this is an affordable way to dip your toes (vulva?) into CBD sex product.
Kush Queen CBD bath bomb
If you’re someone who enjoys a luxurious soak before sex, Kush Queen’s Love CBD bath bomb is for you. Between the relaxing blend of essential oils and the CBD, this should help you get in the mood.
GoLove CBD Intimate Lubricant
PhD-formulated and made in the USA, this water-based, Latex-safe lube is made with 200mg of CBD. But what it doesn’t contain is just as impressive: no oil, parabens, glycerin, alcohol, glycol, petrochemicals, silicone, fragrance or artificial coloring are to be found in this soothing, calming lubricant.
