Just about everything on the market now has a CBD-infused version — even intimate products. From typical lubricants, to supplements and suppositories, these infused products promise to deliver heightened sexual experiences.
These products might even be helpful in addressing issues that affect our sexual and reproductive health. For example, three out of four women experience having pain during intercourse at some point, reports the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
According to a Reuters survey, one-in-12 women say they have experienced vulvodynia, a chronic pain on the outside of the genital region. Further research by the International Journal of Molecular Sciences found that both CB1 and CB2 receptors can help treat neuropathic pain. This means that intimate cannabis products might provide relief for those who suffer from pain associated with conditions like vaginismus, vulvodynia, and interstitial cystitis.
There is also promising research that found CBD can impair the invasion of cervical cancer cells.
Whether you’re looking for sexual pain relief or to electrify your experience, these CBD-infused intimate products are worth a try:
1. Bliss Intimate Oil by Ananda Touch
250 mg of cannabinoids
$46, 2 fluid ounces
This oil promises to alleviate some of the issues associated with dryness and elevates the experience by creating a warming and cooling effect. With 250 mg of active cannabinoids per bottle, and black pepper essential oil, you’ll be sure to feel the soothing effects while adding some spice to your sexy time. It also contains the amino acid l-arginine which is often used to treat erectile dysfunction, reports Healthline. This product has been safety tested for use on your sensitive parts.
2. Tantric Aphrodisiac CBD Tincture by Privy Peach
$65, 1 fluid ounces
This oral supplement is named after the practice of Tantric sex, which takes on many forms. Interestingly, the practice’s main goal isn’t to reach orgasm, but rather to explore and heighten physical sensations, and to connect — whether to your own body or others. This tincture promises to do just that with an aphrodisiac blend of terpenes and 300 mg of full spectrum hemp-infused MCT oil. A vitamin B12 deficiency can be a possible detriment to your sexual life, but this supplement contains this essential vitamin.
3. Intimacy Suppositories with CBD by Foria Wellness
$20, four suppositories
These suppositories work by relaxing the pelvic floor, allowing for a more comfortable sexual experience. According to Foria Wellness, users that suffer from conditions like vaginismus, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, and endometriosis find relief from pain when using these suppositories pre and post sex. Other users report decreased pain and supercharged orgasms. This brand also creates natural lubricants and a stimulating arousal oil with CBD. These suppositories have certificates of analysis (COAs) for each batch to ensure intravaginal and anal safety.
4. Smooth Operator Intimate Serum by Quim
$48, 1 fluid ounces
Quim exclusively makes intimate serums that are latex condom safe. This serum contains aloe vera as the first ingredient which, according to Quim, can be useful in improving vaginal elasticity. Smooth Operator also promises to increase blood flow “down there,” which relaxes the pelvic region and allows for more intense orgasms. They also have THC-infused serums available to those in California. Here is the COA for Smooth Operator.

30 mg of CBD
$49.99, 1 fluid ounces
