I love cannabis and I love lube, so the Honeypot CBD-infused lube sounded like something made for me. It’s luxuriously thick, long-lasting, and the addition of CBD is quite pleasant. This lube is silicone-based, making it waterproof, good for sensitive skin, and probably best kept away from your silicone toys.
There is little scientific information about CBD-infused lubes. Cannabis and its many magical, medicinal properties are sadly under-researched. So most of the information available is anecdotal. That being said, the anecdotal findings are pretty positive, as was my experience with the lube.
Take your time
This is not the lube for a spontaneous quickie. In order to really get the benefits of the CBD goodness the lube needs to stay on your labia, around the inside of the vagina, and/or anus for at least 20 minutes before sex or masturbation. It’s worth mentioning that the CBD will probably not have any added benefits applied to a penis, due to the lack of mucous membranes allowing the CBD to absorb, so no need to apply there early.
Maybe consider taking a bath or shower, applying the lube right after and finding something sexy to watch or read together, sharing some fantasies, or setting a 20-minute timer for massages, swapping halfway. If you are flying solo, snuggle up in bed with a sexy book or your favorite porn and relax before masturbating. Which, to be fair, is good practice with or without the CBD lube.
CBD in general has calming and anti-inflammatory properties which both lend well to pain relief. The most common praise for CBD lube is less pain during and after sex for folks with vaginas. Which is obviously a big damn deal. Dyspareunia affects a significant amount of people, so anything that could allow for pain-free sex is important and could be life-changing.
Whether or not this lube lends to deeper, more intense orgasms or it’s the added extra time spent focused on pleasure, creating a more mindful sexual experience, either partnered or alone, I can’t say for certain. But I am glad to have Honeypot’s CBD-infused lube in my tool kit.
It’s on the higher-end price point for a lube, but a competitive price for a CBD-infused lube. You can grab yours here, and save 20% when you enter “LOVEISAFETISH20” in the discount box.
