What is marijuana lubricant?

Weedlube is an oil-based lubricant infused with marijuana. It usually contains the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, but CBD variants exist as well as those with a more gel-like texture.

Women tend to enjoy cannabis-infused lubricants more than men. Why? It helps them feel more relaxed and comfortable, allowing them to have fun and explore more in the bedroom.

Pelvic floor pain is a common complaint of women during sex, andmany users report that lube significantly reduces the unpleasant sensations. This newfound relief reignites their passion for their partner and boosts their desire for intercourse.

Men still get to join in the fun, too. Making homemade edible lube means the guys get to enjoy effects similar to consuming their favorite cannabis snack when heading south. The oily texture also makes for an uninhibited ride with their female partner. 

How does cannabis-infused lubricant work?

There are many health benefits of marijuana. A perfect example is homemade weed lube. It  works to spice up your sex life in many ways, including:

  • Firing up foreplayas you wait for the sensations to kick in. When the female starts to feel a tingle down below, now’s the time for her male partner to dive south before the oil gets absorbed.
  • One orgasm after another. A DIY THC lube relaxes a woman’s vagina and produces a delightfully warm and tingly feeling. Before long, the labia and inner walls become more sensitive, helping her enjoy multiple orgasms, even if she’s alone!
  • The high after sex. Whether you consume the DIY edible lube or simply enjoy the buzzing sensations, the exciting sensations leave you in a euphoric mood.

The effects and experience you enjoy differ a little depending on whether your weed-infused lubricant is THC or CBD-based. Think about what THC does to the brain and body.

THC personal lubricant

When you’re in the mood for sex, a little marijuana-infused lubricant does wonders for enhancing your sexual arousal. THC opens the capillaries that line the vagina and increases blood flow to the region. The warm tingling you feel heightens your libido and helps you produce more lubrication naturally. 

For men, the penis doesn’t absorb weed lubricant in the same way. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the mental and physical effects of edible lubes, though.

CBD personal lubricant

It’s common for women to experience pain or feel uncomfortable during and after sex. This can be due to many reasons, including tension and inflammation.

CBD is the other cannabinoid found in marijuana that doesn’t produce the high sensations that THC does. A CBD cannabis lube recipe works similarly to CBD topicals to alleviate discomfort in the pelvic area. Your vaginal muscles relax and allow you to experience all pleasure and no pain.

What does homemade weed lube feel like?

If you use the weed lube recipe shared below, the texture will be slippery and greasy. If you opt for coconut oil, the lubricant will be thicker and perhaps a little more difficult to apply. We recommend adding some aloe vera gel in this case.

This extra ingredient is water-based and has a jelly-like texture—making your lube even slipperier and easy to use. Just ensure the product you pick is pure food-grade and has no added artificial ingredients.

To mix aloe vera into your homemade weed lube, add one part marijuana-infused oil to one part aloe gel in a blender. Give it a shake every time you plan to use some.

How to apply weed-infused lubricant

You can put water-based lubricants to use immediately, but cannabis coconut oil lube or other homemade variants are a little different. Take note of the following for the ultimate pleasurable experience:

  • Use the right condom: If you’re having protected sex, you need to know that using oil in your weed lube recipe weakens latex condoms. It’s best to keep the lubricant for foreplay or try condoms made of lambskin, nitrile, polyurethane, or polyisoprene—these are sometimes hard to find, though.
  • Pick the right oil: Cannabinoids need plenty of fat to dissolve, so your cannabis-infused lubricant should always be oil-based. Ensure the ingredients are natural and pure—you’ll be applying it to your most delicate areas, after all. Coconut and almond oils are the most popular as they work well with sensitive skin and taste better.
  • Do a spot test: Before you slather the weedlube all over your partner, you need to test it on a small area first to ensure the right consistency and potency. Apply a tiny amount with one finger and let it absorb into the skin. Wait up to an hour to feel the effects.

Once you’re happy with your homemade edible lube, it’s time to oil up! Simply take a little with your fingers and gently massage it into the area where you want to enjoy the effects. 

Weed lube recipe

Set aside a few hours to complete the THC lube recipe to get the best results. When you follow this step-by-step guide, expect to create around 8 oz. containing 6 mg of THC for every 1 ml. It takes a while, but the results are well worth the effort, and you’ll spend a lot less than you would on commercial cannabis sex lube.


Gather the following ingredients to make your lubricant:

  • 8 oz. oil of your choice (coconut, olive, almond, etc.)
  • ¼ oz. of cannabis buds

You also need the materials mentioned below:

  • Oven
  • Parchment paper
  • 2 mason jars
  • Digital scales
  • Grinder
  • Slow cooker
  • Cheesecloth
  • Boiling water
  • 1 large and 1 small funnel
  • Measuring cup with a spout
  • Tincture bottle

How to make weed lube

Once you have everything ready, use our weed-infused lube recipe for success.

  1. Preheat your oven to around 240°F.
  2. Grind your cannabis nugs—not too finely. About the size of a grain of rice is enough.
  3. Decarboxylate your marijuana by spreading it out evenly across a piece of parchment paper on a cooking tray. Bake it for around 45 minutes and take it out to cool.
  4. Split the decarbed cannabis between both mason jars. Weigh the marijuana on the scales to ensure it’s distributed evenly. Add half of the oil to each jar and seal.
  5. Put the mason jars into a slow cooker and fill it with boiling water and completely submerge the jars. Set the cooker to warm and leave for 4 to 5 hours to cook the mixture. Take the jars out every hour to shake and distribute the oil and cannabis evenly. Use oven mitts as the jars will be very hot.
  6. Once the time is up, take the jars out of the cooker and put them on a cloth to cool down. Laying them on a hard surface could make the jars crack. 
  7. Take the large funnel and line it with four layers of unbleached cheesecloth. Place it over a large measuring cup and slowly pour the oil and cannabis mixture into the funnel. Squeeze the cheesecloth to get as much oil as possible.
  8. With a small funnel, pour the mixture into the tincture bottle. Your cannabis personal lubricant is now ready to use when you like. We recommend you start with 1 ml and adjust if needed.

Frequently asked questions about weed lube

By now, you know that weed and sex go hand-in-hand, how to make weed lube, what it does, and the best strains to use. If you’re still not 100% sure about the ins and outs, don’t worry. We’ve put together the most frequently asked questions about DIY weed lube to help clear up any final doubts.

Can marijuana lube get you high?

Depending on how you use your marijuana lubricant, it could get you high. Simply rubbing it on your private parts won’t give you a buzz, but if you use an edible version during foreplay, you’ll feel the effects.

The high sensation also depends on the strain you used to create the lube. Those high in THC will have a much stronger effect than ones with mainly CBD content.

Can men also use this cannabis lube?

Yes, men can use a cannabis personal lubricant, but it likely won’t have the same effect as it does on women. You might experience increased blood flow, but the penis doesn’t feel the same level of tingling and warm fuzziness that the vagina does.

Is homemade weed lube safe to use with condoms?

Not really. The oil in your weed lube recipe weakens the latex in condoms. So, unless you’re hoping for a bundle of joy soon, we recommend only using the lube for foreplay.
