CBD is kind of the new cronut. It's everywhere and yet, many of us are still uncertain of what exactly it is and how it might be used. We've assembled this handy guide to help answer some of the most common questions you might have before enjoying a CBD lube like Dazy. As always, if you have any concerns beyond this information, please consult with a trusted medical professional.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a non-addictive, safe compound found in the cannabis (or hemp) plant. It is a naturally occurring substance but unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it is nonpsychoactive. No buzz, no munchies, no paranoia.
CBD is believed to help reduce inflammation. Other possible benefits of using a CBD lube are a reduction in pain (for those who suffer from painful intercourse), relaxed muscles, and increased blood flow–all of which could contribute to reduced anxiety.
Dazy does not contain THC. CBD does not have the intoxicating effects of THC, and won’t have any impact on your motor function or cognitive skills. While you won’t get high and while you can’t OD, everybody processes CBD differently. Start with a small dose of lube and if you’re not feeling anything after 1-2 minutes, you can gradually increase usage.
Once you apply the lubricant, it will take about 30 seconds to one minute before you feel a warming effect. While there is no actual warming agent in Dazy, the sensation is caused by an increase in blood flow and a reduction of inflammation. Re-apply as often as needed. If the sensation is too intense or if you have any sort of negative reaction, discontinue use immediately. You might also want to wash or rinse the affected area to ensure there is no residual product remaining.
Hemp is a form of cannabis that has had the THC bred out of the plant. The Hemp Farming Act was introduced into the 2018 Farm Bill. This act, which was signed into law in December 2018 removed hemp from the federal list of controlled substances and classified it as an agricultural commodity. As a result, CBD derived from hemp, like the CBD used in Dazy, is legal nationwide.
The vast majority of drug tests are designed to detect tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the chemical in marijuana that gets you high. These tests are not designed to detect CBD.
Companies can request custom tests to detect CBD, but because of the time and expense involved, there is little incentive for them to do so. To put this in perspective, employees of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are not tested for CBD.
Although there have been a few studies carried out, nothing is certain, and there is very little evidence on the interaction of CBD and hormonal contraception. Since we’re all safety babes here, if you are at all concerned, consult with your doctor before use! This also applies to any other hormone therapies or medication that you might be taking. Remember that since Dazy is a water-based lubricant, it is compatible with latex and all other condom materials. If you or your partner is pregnant, consult with your care professional to discuss using CBD.
The process of growing, harvesting, extracting, and testing are all required when it comes to CBD products, including lube. In order to comply with ethical practices throughout the process, the cost is reflected in the price.
Remember that although laws and social attitudes concerning the consumption of cannabis are changing, the criminalization of cannabis occurred under racist premises, the stigma of which still affects marginalized communities today–especially in terms of arrest records. Movements thrive on accountability and participation, so if you’ve got a local dispensary, ask them about their hiring practices and how they give back to the populations disparaged by the War on Drugs. Get involved in local politics and take a closer look at when and how laws are enforced. Volunteer with and donate to organizations looking to make a positive change, such as Cage-Free Cannabis and NORML, and support platforms that encourage inclusivity and destigmatization, such as Cannaclusive and Estrohaze.
