It’s easy to be skeptical about Cannabis Lube when you read reviews about Velvet Swing lube like, “OH. MY. GOD. It is amazing! I’m pretty sure we could achieve world peace if everyone had a bottle of this stuff.” Or reviews about Foria Wellness like, “While masturbating, I felt each sensation and touch was intensified, and I was more relaxed than I have been in a long time. f*** human partners!” Weed lubesounds like a gift from the gods, so I made it my duty to find out whether the claims were too good to be true. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it!
What is Weed Lube? What is Cannabis Lube? What is Marijuana Lube?
Before we get into our weed lube reviews, let’s go over the basics, shall we? You can use Cannabis Lube, Marijuana Lube, and Weed Lube interchangeably, but usually, people are referring to lube that is infused with THC. THC is the tetrahydrocannabinol found in cannabis responsible for getting you high. Now let’s get something straight, there are two kinds of cannabis lube: THC Lube and CBD Lube.
One thing’s for sure, cannabis lube, whether infused with THC, or just infused with CBD, it is way more than regular lube. Weed lube isn’t designed to give you a head high (unless you end up consuming it, but why would you do that?) However, there have been mixed reports of some people not getting high at all while others report a mild high. Weed lube is designed to give you a better orgasm. CBD lube is the same thing, except it doesn’t contain any THC, and this is the factor that makes CBD lube legal in all 50 states.
Technically, this isn’t a lubricant per se because it takes some time to feel the effects; you have to actually apply it 15-45 minutes before any sexual activity so wait, now you’re thinking how do I use weed lube?
How to use Weed Lube?
Applying lubrication is pretty straight forward, simply apply to your nether regions and wait for it to work. Foria’s directions state, “apply 4-8 sprays directly onto the clitoris, inner and outer labia, and inside the vagina.”
Cannabis lube is different from regular lube because you have to wait for the effects whereas regular lube works immediately. Regular lube does not have the same active ingredients as cannabis lube and is just used to lubricate, not enhance. Sure, cannabis lube provides the same lubrication as regular lube, but there’s so much more to it. You just have to be patient. Despite what you think, waiting can be sexy. Foreplay anyone?
Just remember that it may take 15-30 minutes to feel the effects of cannabis lube. In some cases, it may take an hour or longer because it all depends on several factors, including age, weight, and tolerance.
Why don’t I just smoke a joint or eat an edible before sex?
Cannabis lube is designed explicitly for pinpoint effect. Rather than experiencing a head or body high, cannabis lube is localized to where you apply it. If you smokeor vapeor take an edible, it won’t be the same. Period. They won’t cancel each other out; on the contrary, they may complement each other if you choose the right strain.
Will I get high?
CBD lubewon’t get you high. In contrast, marijuana lube, or any lube with THC, may get you high. Some people report feeling a bit high while others don’t report feeling anything.
There are a few factors that will determine whether or not you’ll get high: the potency of the THC, your weight, and your body chemistry. Even if you feel the psychoactive effects of THC, they will be significantly less than what you would feel than if you smoked or consumed an edible or tincture.
There’s one exception: if you use THC lube and someone performs oral on you, that person will get high. Consuming the lube is inevitable and is basically the same as taking an edible.
So, should I buy weed lube or a CBD lube?
Weed lube and CBD lube are quite different. For one, CBD Lube is legal in all 50 states as long as it is derived from American hemp and does not contain any THC. On the contrary, THC lube is only available in areas that have legalized cannabis for recreational use. The major difference is that CBD is non-psychoactive and won’t get anyone high.
While THC and CBD both come from the cannabis plant, they produce two different effects — THC gets you high; CBD gets you relaxed. Let me put it this way, taking CBD Lube is like driving a Mercedes Benz while taking weed lube is like driving a Ferrari.
From my experience and other reviewers, THC lube has more pronounced sexual effects where your orgasms are intensified and multiplied. In comparison, CBD lube enhances the sexual experience by relaxing you and getting you in the right headspace. CBD lube has also been reported to ease painful sex.
Choosing between weed lube and CBD lube is a matter of personal preference. If you find yourself getting stuck in your head with performance anxiety or general anxiety, CBD lube is the better choice. If you’d rather heighten sensation, weed lube is the better option.
Is marijuana lube for guys?
Yes, someone with a penis can use marijuana lube, but it will work much better in the rectum than on the penis. The rectum is much more absorbent than the penis. If you’re only intention is to use marijuana lube for your penis, you will not feel the same effects as someone using it on their vagina or anus.
Weed Lube Reviews
First, you should know that I’m a skeptic. I begrudgingly did this review in the name of science. I didn’t do it as an excuse to get off during work, I swear. I tried to be as scientific as possible. I took it the same time each day, used the same toy, and followed the instructions.
Now for the good stuff…
Orgasm By Dani Pepper
The best weed lube I tried, hands down, has to be the Orgasm Enhancer by Dani Pepper – an AAXLL Brands Comapny. Surprisingly, this was the last product I tried, but it makes first on my list. By the time I tried Dani Pepper Orgasm Enhancement Oil, I felt like a pro. I felt like I knew what to expect, but holy crap was I wrong. I was very turned on 10 minutes after applying it. I felt the same warm, tingling sensation but felt a little extra. I don’t know how to explain it other than my body felt super responsive, and my skin was very sensitive in a good way. I felt really in touch with my body and comfortable with myself and my sexuality.
I was feeling intense pleasure. That’s the only way I can describe it. It’s like my mind and body opened up. I was entirely in tune with myself, and every second was euphoric. It made me want to call in sick the next day and have a marathon session.
My orgasm literally made me cry. It was the most amazing thing that I had ever felt. I don’t know whether the other lubes I tried had primed me for this, but it was the best orgasm that I’ve ever had. This was the epic, earth-shattering orgasm everyone was talking about. I’ll let you fill in the blanks, but my orgasm was explosive, to say the least. The second and third were tremendous and unexpected but warranted. This experience was easily my best with any lube.
As a bonus, Orgasm by Dani Pepper is sourced from sun-grown cannabis cultivated to organic standards. It is also independently tested for purity.
Another thing that you have to consider is that this is an oil-based lube, so it can’t be used with latex condoms or specific toys. It also may be messy and hard to wash out of sheets. However, it is all-natural and has a pleasant smell. Out of the three THC Lubes that I tried, I’d recommend Orgasm by Dani Pepper Next time you’re at a cannabis dispensary in California, remember to look for Dani Pepper Weed Lube.
I decided to try Foria Pleasure as my first foray into cannabis lube because it’s arguably the most famous THC Lube out there. The only ingredients listed are weed, coconut oil, and love. It doesn’t say whether they used Non-GMO love, but I decided to risk it.
That night I was already primed and turned on. I had been thinking about this assignment for days, so I had some pent up “stress” to relieve. I decided to use the full eight sprays directly on my clit, inner and outer labia, and inside my vagina.
I usually need to watch porn to get me started, but this time, I felt really aroused within 15 minutes. Playing felt sensational. I was so relaxed and felt wetter than I had been in a while. My session lasted longer than I had anticipated. Even though I felt like climaxing, I was able to hold on and keep enjoying myself. It felt as though I was feeling more sensations than usual.
When I did orgasm, it was long and strong but not as epic as I had anticipated. I don’t know whether I bought into the hype and built it up too much, but for how long I was masturbating and for how good I was feeling, I thought I was going to experience something different. Don’t get me wrong, it was a really good orgasm, but it was missing something. It was a little anticlimactic.
There are a few other things that you should know before trying Foria Pleasure. There is a slight cannabis smell that may be off-putting if you’re not used to it. Like Orgasm by Dani Pepper, it is also an oil-based lube, so it is not safe to use with latex condoms and certain toys. The cleanup may be messy as well.
Velvet Swing was founded by sexual activists and educators Mistress Matisse and Chelsea Cebara and is the first water-based marijuana lube. Their formula contains both THC and CBD at a 3-to-1 ratio as well as other cannabinoids and other terpenes.
I used the recommended ten pumps half an hour before I was supposed to play. I wasn’t feeling particularly frisky when I applied it, but to my surprise, I felt warm and tingly down there, which got me in the mood.
This time the orgasm came quicker. Again, it was stronger and longer than what I’m used to but wasn’t something I’d describe as earth-shattering. However, I did have a second orgasm. It wasn’t as good as the first, but it was delightful and a pleasant surprise. According to the company, “THC dilates the smallest capillaries, which increases blood flow and heightens sensitivity, and can lead to longer, stronger orgasms.” I would say that that’s accurate.
Velvet Swing can be used in water and is safe to use with latex condoms and toys. You won’t feel a slimy, oily texture like oil-based lubes, and cleanup is easy. The only down-side is that you don’t get the same glide as oil-based lubes. Plus, the lube itself doesn’t last as long as oil-based lubes, which is why I’d rank this third on my list.
If you live in a state that has not legalized THC Lube, you can also try CBD Lube. Both THC and CBD Lube work the same way in the sense that they increase blood flow to the sexual organs, which means heightened sensation and minimal discomfort. It also means orgasms can happen easier. Reviewers have even talked about decreased pain and increased desire.
In a study by Remedy Review, of the respondents who used CBD sex products, they said that there was a noticeable change in their sex lives including a decrease in anxiety, stronger orgasms, and pain relief.
Again, I tried three different CBD Lubes: Foria Awaken, Ignite CBD Lube by Kush Queen, and O by Dani Pepper. You should know that Foria Awaken is oil-based and Ignite CBD Lube and O Dani Pepper Intimacy Lube are water-based.
CBD Lube gives you a much more subdued experience relative to THC Lube. I felt mellow but still felt incredible, relaxed, and comfortable — my mind was free of distraction. The day’s stress melted away, and I was able to be fully in the moment.
While the warm, tingling sensation greatly improved my experience with THC Lube, this wasn’t that. I could stay in the moment and didn’t have to worry about deadlines or anything. I felt like I could play all night. My orgasm was still stronger and longer than usual. I suspect it was the mental clarity I had. I think the best word I can use for the experience is EASY. It didn’t feel like I had to work for anything; everything came naturally. When I did orgasm, I was shaking, but I felt relaxed.
While the three CBD Lubes I tried were quite similar, I’d recommend O Dani Pepper Intimacy Lube because it seemed like I was more in tune with my body and felt stress-free. I fought with my mom and had a long day that day, so I wasn’t in the mood to play. This lube got me out of my own way, and I had a sensational night. I actually played longer than I had with the other lubes.
You can buy Dani Pepper CBD Lube online, but you have to hurry, it sells out pretty quick!
Best Weed Lube – The Final Word
Out of the three lubes we tested, Dani Pepper stands out as the best in both THC and CBD categories. The team at Dani Pepper have formulated something game changing and I’m excited to see what comes next.
Generally speaking, THC Lube and CBD Lube affect your sexual experience differently than regular lubes. You won’t be paranoid or hallucinate. THC Lube only gets you high if you ingest it or use it in your anus.
Overall, these lubes amplify your sensitivity. You’ll feel a warm tingling with THC Lube within 10 – 30 minutes. With CBD Lube, you’ll feel content and relaxed; you won’t be in your head as much. The effects can last from two to four hours, so the chance of multiple orgasms is there.
The orgasm you experience from THC Lube is much different than the one you get from CBD Lube. Overall, it was easier to have an orgasm on both. The build-up on THC Lube was much more intense and most likely contributed to a more intense orgasm.
There are pros and cons to both water-based and oil-based lube. Oil-based lubes can’t be used with latex condoms or certain toys while water-based lubes don’t have as good of a glide and don’t last as long.
The best part is that some reviews report that marijuana lube helps with endometriosis and ovarian cysts. Explosive, pain-free sex is the holy grail. The only drawback is the wait time. Sometimes your engine is already revved, and waiting an extra half hour seems like an eternity. But you don’t have to do your taxes; you could manually stimulate yourself or, if you have a partner, you could, dare I say, take your time with foreplay.
So if you’re wondering whether you should try cannabis lube, my answer would be Yes! YES! OH, GOD, YES!
