This Valentine’s Day, ditch the teddy bears and red roses and instead, consider creating a sexier, more memorable holiday with hemp-infused intimacy products.
The research is still in the preliminary stages, however, what we know so far seems promising. CBD, especially when applied topically to intimate areas, is capable of enhancing pleasure, increasing sex drive, and alleviating vaginal pain.
CBD-infused lubricants, arousal oils, and suppositories increase blood flow to the genitalia, which heightens sexual arousal and intensity of orgasm.
These products can help people who suffer from vaginal dryness, a condition that is often caused by menopause, breastfeeding, and hormonal changes. CBD possesses anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties that may also reduce the pain associated with sexual intercourse in people diagnosed with conditions like endometriosis and vaginismus.
The fact is, other than the many medicinal benefits, sex always feels better with lube. The News Station wants to share our curated selection of CBD-infused intimacy products with you, so you and your partner can spice things up this year.
Foria: Awaken Arousal Oil
Foria Awaken Arousal Oil is by far our favorite intimacy product on the market. This long lasting oil was formulated with women and people with vulvas in mind, however, it’s not only intended for solo use — couples enjoy incorporating arousal oil into their sex life, as well. Once a few drops have been applied to the vulvar region, the organic blend of broad-spectrum hemp extract and nine plant-based aphrodisiacs help people achieve highly intense orgasms, while still offering relief from pelvic and genital pain conditions.
WLDKAT: Prebiotic + pH Balanced Sex Serum
WLDKAT Prebiotic + pH Balanced Sex Serum promotes vaginal health, in addition to relieving dryness and sexual discomfort. Since this product is pH balanced, you can apply the serum to the vulvar region after sex, while menstruating, or whenever you need some balance down below. The vagina is self-cleaning, however, hormonal changes can increase acidity, potentially causing yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis.
Being water-based and rich in aloe vera juice, WLDKAT’s sex serum is latex-compatible and naturally lubricating. The 200mg of broad-spectrum CBD is the hero ingredient that will intensify pleasure, arousal, and orgasm(s.) Keep in mind, this product is more of a “pre-lube tool to bump up pleasure,” according to their website. Some people enjoy pairing it with a traditional lubricant.
GLISSANT: INTIMATE HUILE D’AMOUR SPRAY
For couples who are new to exploring the world of intimacy products, INTIMATE HUILE D’AMOUR SPRAY by GLISSANT comes in an approachable, refillable, discreet outer shell. Resembling a tube of elegant lipstick, you can leave this on your nightstand and no one would ever guess that it’s actually a bottle of lube.
This doctor-formulated spray contains 100mg of CBD and CBG, in addition to all-natural botanical oils and herbal aphrodisiacs. Being designed for topical and ingestible use, you can spritz a few sprays in your mouth before applying liberally to the genitalia.
The evening primrose oil combined with cannabinoids increases blood flow to your intimate parts, and the dash of peppermint and cinnamon provide a cooling sensation followed by a burst of warmth.
Flora + Bast: LELO X FLORA + BAST Intimate Arousal Collection
Flora + Bast collaborated with the luxury sex toy company, LELO, and launched LELO X FLORA + BAST Intimate Arousal Collection. This sexually fulfilling duo comes with LELO’s SONA, a silky silicone clitoral massager that releases sonic waves. The waves reach 75% of the clitoris, whereas traditional vibrations are only capable of touching the tip of the clit. SONA is a fan favorite considering the fact that it generates unparalleled pleasure.
When paired with Flora + Bast’s Aphrodisia, you’re in for a wild ride. This oil is designed to be used topically, for increased blood flow to your genitalia, and orally for less sexual performance anxiety. Aphrodisia contains 300mg of CBD and 300mg of CBG—a cannabinoid known for possessing powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The CBD activates anandamide receptors in the endocannabinoid system and releases dopamine, providing you and your partner with a deeper emotional connection.
Oshihana: CBD + CBG Sex Oil

Oshihana’s line of intimacy products is our go-to for sexual wellness and recovery. Their plant-based CBD + CBG Sex Oil combines 100mg of CBD, 600mg of CBG and all vegan, organic ingredients. This sex oil is designed to be applied roughly 20 minutes before sex or foreplay, giving the mucous membranes in your anus and vulva enough time to fully absorb the active compounds. Many females enjoy using Oshihana’s products post-play, too, because they offer soothing effects while speeding up the healing process.
Punch CBD: CBD Chocolate Valentine’s Gift Box
Punch Edibles and Extracts is one of the largest cannabis-infused chocolate companies in California. Fortunately for people living in non-recreational states, Punch CBD exists. For V-Day, you can purchase their CBD Chocolate Valentine’s Gift Box, which thoughtfully packages four mouthwatering chocolate bars.
Chocolate in and of itself is an aphrodisiac, and when combined with hemp extract, you’re bound to have a relaxing and sensual evening with your partner. Each bar contains 90mg of hemp-derived CBD with zero THC. For such small-sized servings, these really pack a powerful punch.
Mother’s Dose: Elite Pleasure Vaginal Suppositories
Want to set the mood this Valentine’s Day? You can treat your special someone to a 10-pack of Elite Pleasure Vaginal Suppositories. Mother’s Dose’s all-natural suppositories are power-packed with essential ingredients, including 50mg of full-spectrum hemp, vitamin E oil, hyaluronic acid, and organic cocoa butter.
Two gynecologists stated that these ingredients promote vaginal health and so, this product is considered safe and effective for internal use. 10 to 15 minutes after insertion, you should experience increased arousal and desire, better lubrication, and heightened sensation and pleasure.
Foria: Intimacy Natural Lubricant
For people who are suffering from vaginal dryness or simply seeking some slippery sex, your best bet is Foria’s Natural Intimacy Lubricant products. There is nothing on the market quite like this one, and trust us when we say that we have tried many, many CBD-infused lubes.
This chemical-free lubricant provides natural moisture with only two organic ingredients: 200mg of broad-spectrum hemp extract and MCT coconut oil. There is no need for constant reapplication, a little goes a long way — this is one factor that we particularly enjoyed.
High On Love: Dark Chocolate Body Paint
Chocolate and Valentine’s Day have gone hand in hand for decades now, but High On Love’s Chocolate Body Paint can take sexual satisfaction and kinky romance to a new level. Made with rich dark chocolate and premium grade hemp seed oil, you can paint your partner’s body — even intimate area — before licking off this whipped, decadent chocolate. Unlike other flavored lubes and massage oils we’ve tried, this one doesn’t taste artificial.
Take turns being creative, treating your partner’s body like a canvas while exploring every crack and crevice. This intimacy product doesn’t contain CBD, but we still felt it deserved a place on our list considering the fact that hemp seed oil and CBD are derived from the same plant and both possess health benefits.
