Read on for details on all our fave products, as well as everything you should know about using CBD lube during sex.
1. Kush Queen Water-Based CBD Lube
Kush Queen’s formula is notable because it’s water-based, meaning you can use it with all condoms and toys. Many CBD lubes are oil-based, which makes them great for solo masturbation sessions with your fingers, but a no-no for condoms and silicone toys as the oil can degrade latex and silicone. This formula contains 30 mg of CBD per 30 mL bottle.
THE REVIEWS: “I have tried a lot of water-based lubricants. This is as close to the real thing as I’ve found and it does enhance sensation slightly,” says one tester. “It isn’t sticky or smelly and does not stain. Will never buy another lube, frankly. Love this so much.”
2. Common Bond Lubricant
This lube is not only affordable as far as CBD lubes go, but it also looks chic as heck in an understated minimalist way. It contains 500 mg of CBD per 50 mL bottle. Note, this is not compatible with latex condoms, so if you’re gonna use it, go with non-latex condoms, like Skyn. It’s hydrating and fragrance-free as well, so if you’ve got sensitive skin, this is a good bet.
THE REVIEWS: “So far the few times I used it it has been helpful,” reads one review. “I have a painful bladder condition that can make sex painful or uncomfortable, [and] the lubricate not only keeps things from drying, but the CBD helps with pain and to relax you. It can also intensify the experience, too.”
3. Quim Smooth Operator Intimate Serum
Made with aloe vera, this soothing formula (which contains 100 mg of CBD per 30 mL bottle) is latex-compatible, anti-fungal, and designed to increase blood flow, promote pelvic relaxation, and decrease inflammation and pain. Anal play is also A-OK with this stuff too, which is a bonus.
THE REVIEWS: According to one review, “Painful sex has been an issue as I’ve gotten older. I’ve tried multiple other products and this one is, by far, the best! Not sticky, long lasting, no weird smell. I will be buying this again!”
4. Lora DiCarlo Well Balanced CBD Lubricant
With 500 mg of CBD per 50 mL bottle, Lora DiCarlo’s Well Balanced is the highest concentration of broad-spectrum CBD lube available, so while it’s not great for those who are new to CBD lubes, it can be a game-changer for anyone who experiences pain during sex. This water-based formula contains kava, aloe, and carrageenan to keep you soothed and moisturized without disrupting your pH levels, and it’ll instantly help relax your muscles for bigger, better orgasms.
THE REVIEWS: “I’ve always experienced some kind of pain with intercourse and I can’t believe how well this worked for me,” one tester writes. “My muscles are able to relax and I can enjoy it 100x more. It feels life changing and I wish I knew about it sooner. It also enhanced my partners experience, which is a plus!”
5. Foria Awaken Arousal Oil with CBD
Designed as an arousal oil, or “pre-lube,” this all-natural formula is oiled-based, so it can’t be used with condoms. However! You’ll love that it’s vegan, gluten-free, fully lickable, and amazingly effective. It contains 30 mg of CBD per 30 mL bottle, and just a lil warning: It may come with after-pleasure throbs that will send you back for more.
THE REVIEWS: As one reviewer says, “Oh. My. Gosh. Wow!! I literally am blown away. I am a squirter but have NEVER experienced such intense orgasms/wetness in my life. You can feel the warmth & tingles start even before you touch anything. A little goes a long way—worth every penny 1000 percent.”
6. GoLove CBD Intimate Serum
Yet another great water-based CBD lube option: this anti-inflammatory formula from GoLove. pH-balanced, hypoallergenic, and moisturizing, this serum will get things nice and slippery with the added benefit of 200 mg of CBD per 40 mL bottle.
THE REVIEWS: “With this product, I no longer have pain or dryness during sexual activity!” reads one review. “I love that a little goes a long way, so while the bottle is small, you only need a little bit and it lasts a long time! You will also notice a slight tingling effect…this just enhances your experience! I love it and will DEFINITELY be purchasing it again!”
7. Bloomi Arousal Serum with CBD
Bloomi’s water-based formula is infused with CBD and botanical aphrodisiacs to help naturally increase your arousal before AND during ~intimate moments.~ It’s also pH-balanced with no synthetic ingredients, making it a great choice for folks with sensitive skin.

THE REVIEWS: “Ooh la la! This is the best personal lube I have ever used!” one review reads. “Wet and wild fun!”
9. Flora + Bast APHRODISIA Intimate Arousal Cannabis Oil

THE REVIEWS: “Hands down my favorite lubricant!” writes one reviewer. “This smells so delicious—terpene-rich, which smells super sexy, fresh, and warm. Definitely enhances arousal! We love it so much! It feels incredible, too—super smooth and hydrating. A few drops go a long way!”
10. Glissant CBD and CBG Huile D’Amour Spray Lubricant
For something a lil different, give this super-luxe, oil-based spray lubricant from Glissant a try. Every 30 mL bottle contains just 100 mg of CBD infused with Cannabigerol (CBG), and it’s free from parabens, glycerin, and all that bad stuff. You can use it for vaginal or oral application (yep, it’s totally safe for consumption), and as a bonus, it’s travel-friendly.
THE REVIEWS: One reviewer writes, “Having endometriosis-related pain during intercourse has been an ongoing problem for me, but this CBD product in particular has changed that completely and I am so grateful. The packaging is so classy! Thank you, Glissant!”
11. Privy Peach CBD Infused Intimate Oil
Another great on-the-go option: these intimate oil packets from Privy Peach. Made with ultra-filtered virgin coconut oil, this formula is dosed in 10 single-use packets, with each containing 25 mg of CBD, and while it can’t be used with latex, it’ll leave you feeling soooo soothed.
THE REVIEWS: “CBD Intimate Oil is the real deal,” says one reviewer. “Once I’ve used it, either alone or with my husband, I can’t go back! Wonderful feelings and easier to orgasm. I’m turned on just thinking about it! Highly recommend it.”
So. what is CBD lube?
When it comes to lubes, CBD products tout bennies like helping with pain during intercourse, explains Tatyana Dyachenko, sex and relationship therapist at Peaches and Screams. Since CBD is thought to help with inflammation without affecting consciousness, this can be an especially helpful way for people with vulvas to have more pleasurable sex.
And while you may be a bit wary about CBD lubes (especially if you have sensitive skin), CBD-infused lubes are totally safe, and splurging for a lubricant that includes CBD may just be the move. “CBD lubes can promote vaginal relaxation, increase sensitivity, and decrease pain and anxiety, particularly from patients who suffer from dyspareunia,” says Dr. Kecia Gaither, MD, a double board-certified physician in OB/GYN and Maternal Fetal Medicine.
How to choose the best CBD lube
First things first: There are three different types of lube: water-based, oil-based, and silicone-based. The best all-purpose lubricant is water-based, which is the only one that’s safe to use with condoms and sex toys, as well as the easiest to clean up afterward. However, water-based lube can also be the quickest to dry out, so just keep that in mind as you shop. A few other factors to keep in mind when buying CBD lube:
Pick a reputable brand
Look for lubes from reputable companies with CBD testing lab results from independent testing bodies, says Dyachenko. Your body deserves only the best, bb, and just like with all pleasure products, you don’t want to put anything you can’t trust near your most intimate areas.
Check out the CBD content
You’ll also wanna pay attention to the CBD content in the lube. “Generally, if you’re new to CBD, it is recommended to opt for lower CBD content (usually denoted in milligrams),” Dyachenko says. After that, the CBD strength you’ll need will depend on your condition. If you are one of the many folx who suffers from pain during intercourse and it’s been cleared by a doctor that it isn’t a serious condition worth further investigation, then a higher CBD content might be of more use to you.
Skip the unnecessary chemicals
If you intend to use your CBD lube on your vulva, then it’s best to avoid products with perfumes or scents, as these oft times will serve as irritants. Your intimate areas are *very* good at absorbing stuff, so you don’t want any unnecessary chemicals, like alcohol, flavorings, and artificial dyes, which can lead to increases in vaginitis or dermatitis. Alcohol, flavorings, or perfumes can also alter the vaginal microbiome and increase the risk of vaginal infections, and trust us— you don’t want to deal with that.
