There are many ways to incorporate cannabis into your current lifestyle from recreating your own at-home spa days with cannabis or hemp beauty and wellness products to using creams and salves for post-workout relief. There’s no one way to do it. With cannabis-infused items becoming more available, more than ever it is possible to snack, drink, smoke and topically apply cannabis for medicinal or extracurricular reasons. But, did you know that you can also use cannabis in the bedroom to help spice up your routine, boost intimacy and maximise the thrill?

Oil-based cannabis lubricants and suppositories have been steadily gaining popularity thanks to their ability to make that special time even more enjoyable. These lubes can be used alone or with a partner and have been shown to take intimacy to the next level. You use it by applying it directly onto the genitals (internally and externally for women) and allowing it to be absorbed for at least 30-40 minutes before checking in with your body to see if you are where you want to be. If not, apply more and wait a little more time before getting down to business. Although they are not consumed, they are food-grade and safe to ingest. These types of products can help provide your body with some noticeable effects that can make you feel like you’ve got a different kind of buzz.

If you’re on the fence about trying it out, here are a few reasons you may want to reconsider sampling some for your next sensual rendezvous. 

RELAX THE BODY
It’s not uncommon for many people to experience some a little bit of anxiety when it comes to letting go and getting into the mood. Luckily, cannabis lubes can help your body naturally relax down there.In the same way that infused topicals help to relieve stiffness in your muscles, an infused lube can not only reduce tension and tightness but allow you to really let go and get into the moment. It can take your playtime from good to great every time by increasing blood flow to the genitals, helping your body ease into relaxation and heightening the amount of pleasure you may be able to experience . 

INCREASE AROUSAL
For some people, the issue is not getting aroused but staying there once the feeling arrives. The problem is that they often get revved up, only to have the feeling slowly slip away. Usually it’s out of your control as your body starts to process stress while your mind still wants to have some fun. If you have issues reaching climax or just want to try to possibly get there more quickly and easily, cannabis lubes may assist in increasing nerve sensation and giving you the type of peak you may never forget. This is because they not only assist in keeping your body and mind in alignment, but can also help that sexy mood linger longer than usual. 

ENHANCE SENSITIVITY
Even if you don’t have stress or arousal issues, it can still be difficult to experience your highest potential pleasure if you have a hard time feeling what’s going on. Though cannabis lubricants and suppositories are not made exclusively for women, it may have better and more noticeable results for them. Though the effects can vary from person to person, you may experience some pleasant warmth, mild tingling and even some slight numbing that can give you the stamina to have longer sensual sessions than normal.

Side note: Latex is not compatible with oil-based lubricants. It’s advised to use non-latex condoms or toys to prevent the risk of breakage or damage to products during intercourse or intimate play.
