14 Best CBD Lubes For Pain And Arousal, Per Sex Experts

If you feel like you're hearing more about CBD than ever before, that's because it's truly everywhere. Its next stop? Your bedroom. If you haven't already experienced the magic of CBD lubes for arousal, you may want to after reading this.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a derivative of the hemp plant that isn't addictive, nor does it cause a high. It's popular for its ability to provide natural pain relief and relaxation, even during sex. CBD lubes can ease anxiety or pain during sex and can also increase blood flow to your genitals, leading to more heightened pleasure, says Dr. Tara Suwinyattichaiporn, a Professor at Cal State University, Fullerton and a sex and relationship coach at Luvbites.

See some of the best CBD lubes below:

Bryn Daylor, an intimacy coach based in Austin, Texas, says she's also felt her libido heighten when using CBD lube. “I can feel an increase in my turn-on. When it’s reaching peak effectiveness, I’ve felt a pulsing desire that starts to activate."

If you're going to experiment with CBD lube, you should keep some things in mind, though. The lubes can take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes to activate for you to really feel the effect, so make sure you're okay with a waiting period or some foreplay, says Daylor.

Ready to throw a bottle into your sexy drawer? Here are the 14 best oil and water-based CBD lubes you can shop right now.

Foria is the OG when it comes to CBD and/or cannabis lubes, as they were the first to invent the product in 2014. The brand is highly-recommended by both Dr. Suwinyattichaiporn and Daylor for its ability to increase sensitivity, leading to more pleasurable sex. Who doesn’t want that?

This stimulating oil promises to increase blood flow, stimulate natural lubrication, and "awaken the senses to unchartered territories." It’s natural, edible, and made in small batches to ensure the highest quality.

Because this is a stimulating oil, it is especially helpful for those who want to increase arousal or are looking to combat vaginal dryness.

If you’ve been in the CBD lube game for a minute, take this product for a spin. With 500 milligrams of CBD per 50 milliliters of lube, this is the highest concentration of CBD in a lubricant solution available. It also includes kava (a mood-boosting plant extract) and aloe to keep the skin feeling smooth and moisturized.

Love drops work from the inside out rather than being applied topically. The brand promises that these performance-enhancing CBD supplements increase sex drive and blood flow within minutes.

If you are looking for an alternative to an actual bottle of lube or perhaps want to try the best of both worlds, order these cute little treats.

The Arousal serum from Bloomi is made with non-toxic plant-derived ingredients to protect your intimate areas from irritation. The water-based formula is safe for use with latex condoms. The lube also comes in a chic discreet bottle that kind of looks like nail polish, so you can totally keep it on your dresser for easy access.

Just a little bit of this tangerine-scented lube packs a big punch, according to customer reviews. Its slick formula is made to be long-lasting so that you can reduce friction for longer before you have to pick it up and reapply. Plus, at only $16 for a bottle, it’s one of the least expensive CBD lubes on the market.

If you're looking to naturally increase the length and intensity of your orgasm, O by Dani Pepper is probably the pick for you. It's designed to soothe irritation to the vulva, relax the pelvis, and to make each sex sesh (whether solo or with a partner) a more toe-curling experience by increasing vaginal sensation.

Created by sexologist Dr. Sadie Allison, this lubricant from GoLove is formulated to soothe your nerves and create a more calm mind-body connection during sex. It's made with body-safe ingredients, like moisturizing hyaluronic acid that hydrates the skin, but also relieves discomfort.

Ananda's oil-based lube is made from cannabis and hemp grown on their own farms in Kentucky. The formulation is made with plant-derived essential oils, like peppermint and black pepper, to create cooling and heating sensations that'll make every touch feel that much more intense.

While Toto's Toca oil is designed with the vulva and vagina in mind, the brand says it's designed to feel pleasurable to all genitalia. The formula produces the sensation of heat, increases the vagina's natural lubrication, and can reduce pain. So, it pretty much checks all the boxes of a perfect lubricant.

BTW, it’s also fine to ingest, so you can throw oral sex on the menu.

If you’re looking to get it on ASAP, this is the CBD lube for you. It is fast-acting, so you're ready to roll in less than seven minutes, compared to the 15 to 20-minute wait period other CBD lubes require. It’s also water-based, making it safe to use with latex condoms and toys as well.

Kush Queen’s CBD lube is water-based and can be absorbed into the skin, leaving no mess behind. This solution is non-staining.

The lubricant's hemp comes from a farm in the Pacific Northwest, and the brand promises the CBD content is pesticide and heavy-metal free. Pick this one up if you're looking for a cleaner option.

This all-natural, vegan formula promises to help you unwind, boost your natural lubrication, and minimize discomfort and pain during sex. It is solid at room temperature, but melts when it touches the skin. The oil comes in pre-portioned individual packets, making them great for travel.

If you’re heading on a sexy getaway and want to bring something spicy with you, this lube is an excellent option, says Dr. Suwinyattichaiporn.

Its packaging is beautiful, super discreet, and small while still holding enough product to get the job done several times. This lubricant is oil-based, but they also offer a water-based option.

CBD lubes can be great for people who experience pain or anxiety in the bedroom because they can increase blood flow and in turn increase pleasure, says Suwinyattichaiporn.

But they can also just be a fun thing to try, Dr. Suwinyattichaiporn says. “Some people report just loving the feel of CBD lube in general and use it when they masturbate." Daylor says that after trying Foria CBD lube for the first time, she never looked back. In her experience, it has made her more sensitive (in a good way) to her partner or her own touch and has enhanced her orgasms.

Like with any product you are applying topically or ingesting, watch out for any harsh chemicals. If you can’t read it, you probably shouldn’t put it on or inside your body, Daylor says.

Hannah Deindorfer, a sex educator, also urges anyone who is experiencing anxiety or pain during sex to seek out the help of a doctor or sex coach. “There are other, longer-lasting solutions for you,” she notes. It's also important to note that using CBD may increase drowsiness, as CBD is sometimes used as a sleep aid.
