Cannabis infused lubes are the hottest thing with women who are looking for a way to improve their sex life. With more and more cannabis products entering the market, and now that cannabis is legal in Canada, many women are wondering if cannabis can help them, especially for sex.
I’ve been using cannabis to improve my sex life for years, it’s the reason why I got back into cannabis after I quit smoking weed and discovered vaporizing. I’ve written a lot about cannabis and sex, how it gave me what I call “velvet vagina” and how I use edibles for sex to help with the internal pain I developed after my son was born via C-section.
It’s proven that cannabis is great for sex but what about when applied topically?
How cannabis topicals work
The skin has its own cannabinoids receptors, which are a part of our endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system regulates many functions of the body such as mood, sleep, digestion, hormones and more. The job of the endocannabinoid system is to keep our body in a state of homeostasis. Cannabinoids from the cannabis plant bind themselves to various receptors found throughout our bodies. There isn’t much science on topicals however there’s an abundance of anecdotal evidence from years of people using them.
Cannabis topicals come in a variety of types such as- bath salts, creams, salves, massage oils, suppositories and even make-up. Cannabis topicals have been celebrated for helping ease arthritic pain, skin conditions like eczema and with lube, vaginal pain and discomfort.
What cannabis lube does for sex and will it get your vagina high…
I suppose in a way it does get your vagina high, it just doesn’t get you high. THC from topicals doesn’t enter the blood stream and therefore won’t get you high. THC infused lube increases blood flow to the vagina, this can make your vagina feel warm and tingly. What cannabis infused lube does for the vagina is increase sensitivity, numb pain and many women report it deepens their orgasms.
I recently reviewed Sex Pot by Latitude, an intimacy oil new to the Canadian cannabis market. I gave it several tries before reviewing it to see if it lives up to the hype.
My experience with Sex Pot intimacy oil
I tried this oil four times before reviewing it, once was while I was on an edible, twice when I also vaporized cannabis and once where I didn’t use any cannabis. I’m used to using cannabis for sex, as I mentioned before, it’s the only way I can have sex without it causing pain.
I researched what other women said about using infused lube and their experience was similar to mine. What I felt about 15 minutes after applying the oil, was a tingling and warming sensation, like someone applied a heating pad to my vulva. This helped increase arousal. I noticed it made my clitoris way more sensitive. I use the womanizer during sex (ladies, if you haven’t used this device while having sex, you’re seriously missing out!) and I noticed I had to turn the vibration down as it was too intense with the oil I applied.
I did notice that it numbed the area, so I felt less pain. Did it help with orgasms? The first time I can’t tell you because my son banged on the door THE EXACT MOMENT I WAS HAVING AN ORGASM (a little piece of you dies inside when that happens, amirite?) however I noticed the other times that it did seem to deepen and lengthen the orgasm a little bit.
Can you get high from cannabis lube and are there side effects?
As I mentioned before, no you won’t get high from THC topicals. However, if you have a cut on the skin, or cuts inside the vagina, some of the product may enter your bloodstream and you may feel a bit high.
Also if you have oral sex after applying the lube and if you swallow it, then you can get high from that as well. Otherwise it’s unlikely you will feel any kind of high, topicals work locally, so you’ll only feel the sensations where you applied the product.
As far as side effects, you might get a reaction to whatever ingredients are in the product itself, if you’re allergic to it. However you won’t get any side effects from cannabis in the topical.
*Cannabis oils shouldn’t be used with latex condoms or toys.
Other ways you can use cannabis lube
If you enjoy anal sex, cannabis oil applied to the anal area may help relax the anus and reduce pain. It’s definitely worth a try. However remember, you can’t use latex condoms with an oil.
For the vagina, using a cannabis lube even when you’re not going to have sex, can help with vaginal dryness, especially from perimenopause and menopause. It may also help with other discomforts we get from time to time such as skin conditions like ingrown hairs. It may help reduce the soreness you can feel after sex.
Cannabis lube is definitely worth a try
Cannabis intimacy products are definitely worth a try, it helps with arousal, reduces pain, increases sensation and gives you better orgasms. I recommend giving a product a try and if you do, let me know how it was for you in the comments below.
Psyched Wellness is Bringing You Amanita Mushrooms – And It’s All Legal
Magic mushrooms are the new buzz word, but they don’t all fall into just one category. Sure, there are psilocybin magic mushrooms, but there are also amanita mushrooms, for a different kind of high and unique medical advantages. Now, the company Psyched Wellness is offering amanita mushroom products, and the best part is, it’s all legal.
We all know about psilocybin mushrooms, right? Well, now there’s a new mushroom to know about, Amanita muscaria, and these mushrooms are not only legal, but come with a host of medical benefits. If you’re into independent drug reporting concerning the cannabis and psychedelics fields, this is the publication for you. We provide the Cannadelics Weekly Newsletter so readers can stay updated on current events, as well as have access to tons of deals on cannabis products including popular cannabinoid compounds Delta 8 THC, and HHC, and all upcoming hallucinogenic products. Check the ‘best of’ lists for offers, and choose the products you’re most comfortable using.
What are amanita mushrooms?
When you hear the term ‘magic mushrooms’ the go-to association is with psilocybin mushrooms, the shrooms readily found in North and South America, which cause trips and highs by activating serotonin receptors. These mushrooms, along with LSD, DMT, and other compounds, are considered psychedelic hallucinogens.
This group of psychedelic hallucinogens doesn’t include other drugs we often think of as psychedelics, like ketamine. That drug, along with PCP and DXM are all dissociative hallucinogens. There is a third group as well, called deliriant hallucinogens, which includes scopolamine, the drug used to rob people by taking away their ability to argue with perpetrators. These three represent serotonergic, dopaminergic, and anticholinergic hallucinogens only.
This is where amanita mushrooms come in, as hallucinogens that act on a different neurotransmitter, GABA. Amanita muscaria mushrooms – AKA fly agaric, (for their ability to attract and trap flies), are also wild mushrooms that produce some trippy effects, but with an entirely different mode of action then psilocybin mushrooms. Amanita mushrooms are considered poisonous mushrooms, and contain a compound called muscimol, which is GABAergic. This means it acts as an agonist on GABA receptors, and does so in the same way as GABA itself; rather than attaching to different receptor sites like benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and Quaaludes.
These mushrooms also contain ibotenic acid, which is the compound more likely to make a person sick. This compound is a prodrug (a compound which is biologically inactive until metabolization), and is metabolized in the body to become muscimol. This is similar to psilocybin, which is also a prodrug, and which is useless in the human body until it changes into the other compound found in magic mushrooms, and the real compound of interest, psilocin.
Whereas psilocin acts on serotonin receptors, creating a stimulant response along with its psychedelic effects, muscimol acts on GABA receptors that calm the body down. Amanita mushrooms therefore won’t cause the same kind of ‘bad trip’ as psilocybin mushrooms, since there’s no stimulant effect. They do, however, come with their own reasons for caution in how they’re prepared and eaten, so as not to make a user feel sick. Neither mushroom group is known to cause death (despite the name ‘poisonous’), so even a bad experience with either is only temporary.
Amanita mushrooms are less well-known in the Americas as they’re not native to this region. For the most part they’re found around Northern Europe and Russia (particularly Siberia), and factor into medicinal and shamanistic traditions in those regions. This is probably why they aren’t scheduled in the US Controlled Substances list, which makes them legal to have and use in the US.
A little about Psyched Wellness & Calm
Psyched Wellness is a publicly traded company on the Canadian Securities Exchange under (CSE:PSYC), which used to be Duncan Park Holdings Corporation. Based out of Toronto, Psyched Wellness is a life sciences company which just finished a pilot run for its new amanita mushrooms product, Calm.
This main offering of the company, Calm, is the first approved amanita mushroom product to hit US markets. According to the company, its made 100% from amanita mushroom caps, is lab tested, detoxified to ensure no bad effects (no ibotenic acid), and can be used to “reduce stress, ease muscular tension, and promote restorative sleep.” The company is taking preorders for the product right now, and interested buyers can reserve themselves a 1 fluid ounce bottle for $49.99. Products are expected to officially hit the market in the fall.
Calm registers as a dietary supplement, which is advertised as ethically sourced. The main component, according to the company’s site, is AME-1 which was developed in the Psyched Wellness laboratories to mimic the naturally extracted compound muscimol. It does not contain naturally occurring muscimol. As this is not a controlled substance, and doesn’t require a prescription, the company is free to sell it without the same complications that currently exist with psilocybin mushrooms, which are still federally illegal as they sit in Schedule I of the controlled substances list.
The company is looking to expand its product offering in the future. According to CEO Jeffrey Stevens, “It has been a long journey to get to this point, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank my co-founder, David Shisel, our team, KGK Science and Vantage Hemp for all of their hard work and commitment to get us to where we are today. The most exciting part for me is that we have just scratched the surface with respect to potential uses and delivery forms for AME-1. Stay tuned for more to come from Psyched.”
Aside from this compound, the company also sells accompanying sweatshirts, bags, T-shirts, phone covers, water bottles, hats, and mugs, some emblazoned with the well-known image of the red capped mushroom with white spots. While Super Mario Brothers certainly kept this image alive for years, its new entrance into the US sales market is sure to give it an extra popularity boost in the near future.
A bit more on muscimol from amanita mushrooms
For many people, these mushrooms represent something completely new. Whereas psilocybin mushrooms have been used in the Americas for millennia, both for medical and recreational purposes, amanita mushrooms are not well-known to this part of the world. They are therefore a mystery to Americans in terms of what they can do, what to be wary of, and how they differ from standard magic mushrooms. In an interview with Technology Networks, Jeff Stevens gave some insight into these ‘other’ hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Of muscimol he says, “Muscimol is one of the main psychoactive compounds found in the Amanita muscaria mushroom along with ibotenic acid and muscarine. Although it does have psychoactive properties, the effect is very different from psilocybin or psilocin. It reacts with the GABAA receptor and when ingested, it can provide feelings of euphoria and tranquility, an altered sense of hearing and taste, changes to sensory perception and vivid dreams.”
He goes on to stipulate that “If it is not processed properly, where the ibotenic acid is not converted to muscimol, it can provide quite a nasty experience including sweating, nausea, loss of balance and involuntary bodily movements.” This helps explain how amanita mushrooms can cause negative effects, but don’t have to so long as the right usage techniques are employed.
In terms of why we’re only hearing about muscimol now, he says, “We believe the reason muscimol has not been studied to a large degree is because it has been mislabeled as poisonous and as such was overlooked. As a result, there’s not been a lot of scientific studies conducted on muscimol so groups like Psyched Wellness need to start from the ground up, making it more time consuming and more expensive.”
When it comes to the legality of the mushrooms, he explains, “Amanita muscaria are considered food and are principally regulated under the Federal Drug Act and the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act in Canada and the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and The Nutrition Labelling and Education Act in the USA. As a result, the challenges that other compounds face with extraction, regulation and or administration are not a factor.”
Psyched Wellness has been going over accumulated research on these mushrooms, looking for different applications. Says Stevens, “we believe muscimol could show positive indications for various mental and physical health issues, including sleep, insomnia, addiction and pain.”
Amanita mushrooms represent a different option in the world of hallucinogenic treatment. It’s not just about standard psychedelics anymore, and amanita mushrooms, with their main psychoactive constituent muscimol, offer an entirely different approach to helping with mental and physical health.

Learn All About High-Potency Cannabinoids and the Products Containing Them
In today’s cannabis market – at the very least, in states that don’t have legal recreational weed – high-potency products containing blends of extra strong cannabinoids and gaining popularity. But what exactly are these new compounds? Are they natural or synthetic? What makes them different from one another? And what kind of products contain them? Scroll down to learn all about high-potency products.
To stay current on everything important happening in the industry, subscribe to The Cannadelics Weekly Newsletter. Also, it’ll get you premium access to deals on cannabis flowers, vapes, edibles, and much more! We’ve also got standout offers on cannabinoids, like HHC-O, Delta 8, Delta 9 THC, Delta-10 THC, THCO, THCV, THCP & HHC, which won’t kill your bank account. Head over to our “Best-of” lists to get these deals, and remember to enjoy responsibly!
What are high-potency cannabis products?
High-potency cannabis products are just that, consumer weed products that contain the more psychoactive compounds found in the cannabis plant, as well as some new, synthetic variations. The two categories of cannabinoids that actually produce these type of effects are THCs (tetrahydrocannabinols) and HHCs (hexahydrocannabinols).
When it comes to high-potency cannabis products, they can fall into one of three categories: products that contain only one high-potency cannabinoid, such as THC-P only products. You can also have products with a blend of high-potency cannabinoids, like THC-O, Delta 10, THCjd, and THCh mixed together. Or, you can have a product with very high concentrations of any psychoactive cannabinoid, like edibles with 100mg or more of delta 9 per serving.
Typically, high-potency products consist of vapes, edibles, and concentrates. Flower products can be infused with stronger cannabinoids, but they still are not usually considered high-potency, because there really is a limit to how high one can get on smokables.
More about THCs and HHCs
First, let’s quickly review THCs. There are a total of at least 15 that we know of. There are 4 major types of THC that are naturally occurring in the plant: THCA, THCV, Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC. Then, we have a few synthetics like THC-O and Delta 10. And we also have some very trace cannabinoids (those that show up in very low amounts) like THCP. And then we have a whole slew of new THCs that very little remains known about, and these include THCjd and THCh.
We also have one, naturally occurring endocannabinoid that is in the family of THCs, and that’s 11-hydroxy THC. This is not a cannabinoid per se, but a metabolite that our body creates when we digest different types of THC. So, if you’re eating naturally occurring THCs, like Delta 8 or Delta 9, the effects in our bodies will be the same, because they are all converted to 11-hydroxy THC. Synthetic THCs may have different effects, this has not been thoroughly studied.
Now, on to HHCs. There are way less HHCs than THCs, so at least it doesn’t get very confusing here. With hexahydrocannabinols we have HHC, HHC-O, and HHC-P. There is a biologically active naturally occurring (−)-hexahydrocannabinol, as well as its synthetic enantiomer (+)-hexahydrocannabinol. The synthetic HHC, which can be found in spice, has the chemical formula: 9-Nor-9β-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol, and the natural variety, found in trace amounts in cannabis pollen, goes by the formula: 6aR,9R,10aR-Hexahydrocannabinol.
Both HHC-O and HHC-P are synthetic. HHC-O is the acetate version of HHC. HHC-P has the same alkaline chain as HHC but with two extra carbons included. The addition of these extra carbons is believed to enhance its ability to bind to cannabinoid receptors in the human body – but again, much of this research is extremely new and limited.

Cannabinoid Blends – 1:1 Ratios, Entourage Effect, and Deals
We have reached a turning point in the cannabis industry, where, as consumers, we now have more choices than we know what to do with. When I was younger, shopping for weed consisted of calling one of the 3 or 4 dealers in my area and picking up whatever flower strain was available from whoever had the best product or lowest price, or a combination of the two. Now, whether you live in a legal state or not, you have options – from classic flowers, to vape products, edibles, topicals, and so much more.
Obviously, legal markets are rife with product variety, but even in prohibition states you can check out smoke shops, gas stations, or online retailers and find a myriad of alternative cannabinoids; some intoxicating and some not; some safe and some sketchy. The more popular products are often those containing blends of three or more different cannabinoid and terpene compounds.
According to recent surveys, nearly half of all cannabis consumers prefer to use products that contain more than one cannabinoid, among the most popular being 1:1 blends. Knowing what we know about the entourage effect and how different plant compounds work together synergistically to provide the highest level of benefits, it’s no surprise that people are excited to try new mixes. But how exactly do these blends work? What are the best combinations? And what different effects can you expect to experience?
Cannabis science has come a really long way since the initial discovery of individual cannabinoids back in the 1940s. To this day we continue to uncover new and exciting things about this incredible plant. Remember to subscribe to The Cannadelics Weekly Newsletter all the latest news and industry stories, as well as exclusive deals on flowers, vapes, edibles, and other products. Also save big on Delta 8, Delta 9 THC, Delta-10 THC, THCO, THCV, THCP & HHC products by checking out our “Best-of” lists!
Alright, so maybe you weren’t expecting math terms in your weed article, but in this case, at least it’s a simple concept. A ratio is a measurement of comparison, and is written with one side against the other. In terms of cannabis products, it generally denotes the amount of THC vs CBD in milligrams, though it can account for any comparison between any compounds. THC and CBD are the two main cannabinoids of the cannabis plant, but some formulations will contain high enough levels of CBN or CBC, for example, that they are included in the ratio.
A 1:2 ratio means that for every one milligram on the first side, there are two on the other. So a product with a THC/CBD ratio of 1:2 could have 6mg of THC to 12mg of CBD or 8mg of THC to 16mg of CBD. A ratio always has the compounds it refers to listed, and goes according to order. If its THC/CBD, then the first number in the ratio is for THC, and the second is for CBD. If the letters are switched, then the accompanying numbers switch sides as well.
Let’s say you have a ratio of THC/CBD 5:2. Then a product with such a formulation could have 20mg of THC to 8mg of CBD. For every 5mg of THC, there are 2mg of CBD. Now, let’s say it’s a formulation that contains something else, like THC/CBD/CBN, then a ratio might look like this 3:2:1, and means that for every 3mg of THC, there are 2mg of CBD, and 1mg of CBN. Therefore, a product with this ratio designation could have 12mg of THC, 8mg of CBD, and 4mg of CBN.
The 1:1 ratio refers to products that have equal amounts of THC and CBD, or very close to equal amounts. The amount is whatever a producer decides on, but it only counts as a 1:1 ratio if it’s the same on both sides. So a product could have 15mg of THC and 15mg of CBD, or 10mg of THC and 10mg of CBD.
Sometimes the amounts are just slightly off, giving one a tiny edge over the other, but still close to this general ratio. Think of a product that contains 20mg of THC and 19mg of CBD. It’s not exactly the same, but rather than looking at it as a ratio of 20:19, we can also consider this a 1:1.
The Entourage Effect
First noted in 1998 by Professors Raphael Mechoulam and Shimon Ben-Shabat, the entourage effect is a mechanism by which plant compounds work together, often resulting in more noticeable effects compared to when they are isolated and used individually. With cannabis, the entourage effect refers to the way different cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids offer the best health benefits and psychoactive effects when combined, and only when consuming the entire plant in its natural stat
This has been attributed to the way the combination of compounds increases the activity of CB receptors one and two. Because these receptors are found throughout the entire body, the human endocannabinoid system plays a critical role in modulating many different physiological functions such as immune response, sleep/wake cycles, appetite, communication between cells, mental health, and more.
In 2001, two highly notable researchers Ethan Russo (MD, is a board-certified neurologist, psychopharmacology researcher, and author) and John McPartland (DO, MS, University of Vermont, Department of Family Medicine), published a paper titled “Cannabis and Cannabis Extracts: Greater Than the Sum of Their Parts.” This research paper revisits the claims of Mechoulam and Ben-Shabat regarding how cannabinoids act with other cannabinoids, as well as their interactions with secondary compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids.
Their research found supporting evidence that “extracts rich in both cannabinoids and terpenes increased pharmacological activities that strengthened and broadened clinical applications and improved the therapeutic index.” Simply put, the effects all-around are better when these compounds are allowed to do what they do naturally and work together.
