Cannabis is sexy for many reasons—we know this. It revs our mental engines and expands our ideas of giving and receiving those hot, fuzzy feelings. But it also feels good on top. 

When it comes to lube and topicals, studies have found cannabinoids to be effective vasodilators. In short, a weed-infused product applied on the skin can increase blood flow and target specific regions of the body to improve sensitivity for both parties. 

Additional data suggests that our two favorite cannabinoids— THC and CBD—work as a power couple to reduce pain and inflammation when used topically. This trifecta of health effects translates quite well into leisure activities in the bedroom. But hold your horses!


11 weed strains that bang for 2024 and beyond

We always recommend starting at the lowest effective dose. These products have a generally low risk, but consult a doctor before using them to see if they’re right for you. Check the ingredients for any potential allergens, and maybe patch-test the product on your hand or arm before it goes anywhere a little more touchy. 

If weed lube is for you, we got you. Here are the 10 best THC lubes and CBD lubes on the market today.

Founded in 2013, Foria is a weed lube OG. Its CBD-infused Intimacy Sex Oil shines in its simplicity with only two ingredients: 400 mg broad-spectrum CBD and organic coconut oil. This clear and odorless lube in an easy-to-use spray pump is like satin—light to the touch but incredibly moisturizing immediately. Turned on is an understatement; more like wet and juicy, and a little goes a long way.

The equally seductive intimacy oil, Awaken, is known as a “pre-lube” to support the body’s arousal and enhances natural lubricant, blood flow, and comfort. Foria even has a sexy Valentine’s Day-timed bundle called Sweet Seduction with Alice Mushrooms to ignite your weed and mushy passions. 

People can check the COAs of each batch on the brand’s website for an added layer of consumer transparency. The beloved lube brand dropped its THC offering in 2021 (formerly available in California) because CBD is available nationwide and offers similar benefits. —Trina Calderon contributed to this review.
