What is CBD lube?

Personal lubricant, or lube for short, is a liquid, gel, or oil that reduces friction during sex. 

Using lube can increase pleasure, help with dryness, or simply spice things up, Aleece Fosnight, MSPAs, founder of the Fosnight Foundation and sexual medicine specialist explains. 

A CBD lube takes this a step further by combining lubricating agents, such as coconut oil or aloe vera, with CBD extract. Some CBD lubes are made with additional ingredients to promote relaxation, such as herbs or essential oils.

How does CBD lube work?

If you’re unfamiliar with how CBD works, here’s a quick recap: CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS.) The ECS is a cellular communication network that helps your body maintain internal balance1 (AKA homeostasis).

The ECS affects nearly every system of your body, and you’ll even find receptors in your reproductive organs and skin2. Animal studies have shown that it’s possible to absorb CBD through the skin2.*

Though more research on humans is needed, this indicates that absorbing CBD topically could be beneficial, even in lube form.*

What are the potential benefits of CBD lube?

While there are no published studies directly investigating CBD’s link to sex, some research suggests that CBD could provide indirect benefits in bed.*

For example, some animal studies3 link CBD to lower pain levels.* Interestingly, in a 2021 survey of 1,382 women with chronic pelvic pain and fibromyalgia, 80.9% of respondents who used CBD said they experienced pain relief4.

With that in mind, it’s not a huge stretch to assume that CBD could potentially support pelvic comfort. This could, in turn, promote more enjoyable sex.*

Evidence also links CBD to improved stress levels5—and when you feel more relaxed in bed, you can get “out of your own head” and enjoy the moment.*

Anecdotally, some people report greater sexual responsiveness from using CBD.* "[Some people] have found that CBD offers enhanced sexual pleasure, especially with full-spectrum products," Dennis Mistrioty, CEO of BATCH CBDpreviously told mbg.* But again, no research currently exists on CBD’s relationship to arousal.

How we picked

  • Organic options: When possible, we selected CBD lubes with USDA-certified organic ingredients since organic farms don’t use herbicides or pesticides to grow their hemp.
  • Third-party testing: Fosnight and Parodneck both suggested CBD lubes with certificates of analysis (COAs) or lab test results available. These tests verify that no outside contaminants will come along for the ride, such as heavy metals or pesticides.
  • Ingredients: To protect sensitive skin, Fosnight recommends choosing CBD lubes without ingredients like fragrances, parabens, and glycerin. This in mind, we selected lubes with minimal ingredient lists and no artificial dyes, colors, or other unsavory additives.
  • Reviews: To be sure these products will live up to the hype, we selected lubes with plenty of five-star reviews. We kept any negative reviews in mind for potential cons, which we’ve listed for each lube.

Is CBD lube safe?

There's research to show that CBD is generally safe6—however, CBD lube isn’t currently FDA-approved or regulated, which means that there isn’t any safety oversight on the products. 

To verify a CBD lube’s safety, Fosnight recommends choosing a brand that goes through third-party testing and has a certificate of analysis (COA.) A COA verifies a product’s total CBD content and ensures it doesn’t have any unwanted intruders, such as heavy metals or herbicides.

Additionally, some people may also have a sensitivity to CBD lube, Fosnight says, which could cause irritation to your skin. 

Before you use CBD lube for the first time, Fosnight and Parodneck both suggest performing a spot test to see if you have a reaction to the product. To do this, simply apply a small amount to your wrist or forearm. If you don’t experience any redness or an allergic reaction, you can then try it on a larger area.

Are there any side effects of CBD lube?

Beyond allergic reactions or irritation, studies show some people may experience side effects from using CBD, including6:

  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Changes in appetite or weight

FAQ

1.

Can CBD lube help with pain?

There aren’t any studies that investigate CBD’s impact on pain during sex. However, some research indicates that CBD could potentially promote pain relief in other contexts, such as joint pain relief from arthritis.*

2.

Can CBD lube help with arousal?

According to a 2020 study, CBD could potentially widen blood vessels7*—and blood flow to the genitals is thought to play a key role in arousal8. But again, no scientific research has directly investigated CBD’s effect on arousal or physical sensation during sex.

3.

Is it safe to use CBD lube during sex?

While CBD lube isn’t currently FDA-approved, no evidence suggests that CBD might be more dangerous to use during sex than at any other time. 

One important consideration: CBD could pose potential risks9 during pregnancy. So, those who are pregnant or trying to conceive should also avoid using CBD lube, Fosnight says.

The takeaway

If you’re looking for a new way to shake up your bedroom activities, CBD lube could provide the spice you’re looking for. According to experts, it could help you kick back and enjoy more relaxing, pleasurable sex.*
