How To Make Your Own Cannalube
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it is time to start looking at how cannabis can be used to enhance your love life. One way that you may not have considered before is by using a cannabis infused lube during sex.
It may sound odd, but cannabis infused lubricants have become an extremely popular product in countries that have legalised weed. It is an all-round enhancer, with many people singing its praises. The most notable effect is for women, increasing both the intensity and length of orgasm. In general, it works to relax the muscles and enhances psychical sensations. For men, it improves performance, helping them go for longer.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
As the cannabis is being applied topically, it will rarely get you high. This is because cannabinoids are absorbed very slowly through the skin. It is slow enough the that the body has time to process them before they can have any psychoactive effect. The result is a localised sensation to the area applied, with muscles becoming relaxed and an enhanced sensitivity of the skin.
Cannalube is considered a pre-lube, meaning it must be applied to the woman 45 minutes before you get intimate. This gives it time to take hold and enhance sensitivity. Don’t let the lack of spontaneity dishearten you, though. It is a great opportunity to spend time with your significant other, talking, bonding, or maybe getting down to some foreplay – it is what you make of it!
MAKING YOUR OWN CANNALUBE
Making cannalube is extremely easy, and can be done using natural products.
Roughly 18-20g of trim, finely ground
1 Cup of liquid coconut oil
1 Tbsp of liquid sunflower lecithin (or equivalent)
Small oil spray bottle
1. Combine everything in your slow cooker and mix it all up.
2. Cook on a low/medium temperature for 4 hours, stirring every now and again.
3. Allow the oil to cool for a bit, and then strain it through the cheesecloth and sieve into your bottle.
4. Take the cheesecloth and left over cannabis, and squeeze the cloth to force out any leftover oil.
6. Allow your cannalube to cool down completely before putting the lid on.
You have now made your very own cannabis infused lube, ready to take things to the next level in the bedroom. Just remember, it needs to be applied a good 45 minutes before use!
