THC Lube – Uses, Benefits, Effects, and DIY Recipe
Cannabis and sex?—what could be better?! This perfect little combination is exactly what THC lube offers, allowing users to take in the pleasing effects of THC while exploring their wild sides.
If you’ve never heard of THC lube before, we don’t blame you. It isn’t exactly something you will easily spot in the aisle next to condom and regular lube. Whoever invented this ingenious product, however, miraculously found a way to make a regular sex high even better.
If you are looking for a way to spice of your sex life, or if you simply want to learn more about how you can bring your love of pot into the bedroom (I mean, we mean in a different way than your bong…) keep reading to learn more about THC lube, why you should be using it, and even a DIY recipe so that you can make it at home.
What is Cannabis Lubricant?
Cannabis lubricant isn’t the same as the typical KY or Swiss Navy lubricant you may be thinking about—as this bad boy is more useful for its herbal components than its hydrating properties.
The product usually consists of a blend of THC and an oil-based lubricant, which makes it not suitable for use with a condom as it will degrade the latex.
Uses and Benefits
TCH lubricant can actually be used for a wide range of purposes, besides those that you are probably thinking about.
Yes, it can be used during intercourse as a fun way to shake things up, but it can also be used to reduce anxiety, relieve female cramps, and minimize insertion pain during sex.
For those who do plan to use THC lube in the bedroom, however—let’s be real, most of us—note that it often doesn’t offer the same level of liquid lubrication as regular lube, but the THC does activate your nerve endings and give you an erotic warming sensation that can intensify your orgasm.
If you do need that extra hydrating boost, however, you can always combine THC lube with a regular commercial lubricant.
But ok, ok, I know the question that most of you are probably thinking “will my vag get high?” And the answer—is both yes and no. When applied topically, THC lube does not give you the same body high that smoking weed or ingesting edibles gives you.
That being said, users of this product report a very localized relaxed sensation, like your downstairs area is on a little vag-cation. In addition, most product descriptions say that ingesting THC lube can cause you to experience a high, and let’sbe real—in the bedroom, anything is possible.
Homemade Vs Buyable
Very few places sell THC lube in stores, making it an especially difficult product to get your hands on if you do not live in places where pot is legal in some form, and even still,the product can be rather pricey.
However, if you do live in a state where THC is readily sold, there are several highly rated brands to choose from if you opt to go the commercial route.
If on the other hand, you don’t live near retailers of the product, or you want to experiment with the formula without spending a fortune, you can make high-quality THC lube right at home, which honestly may even be better than buyable options since you can choose your own essential oils.
Use for Men
Though most THC lube is marketed towards women, men can use this product too by applying it in the same way. In addition, while some may choose to use this product alone, experts agree that it is best enjoyed with a partner.
