High On Love makes CBD and cannabis wellness products that will make your vagina feel luxuriously pampered. The company’s founder, Angela Mustone, brings 17 years of experience working with sexual wellness products such as toys and lubricants. When she asked her company’s chemist about her dream of adding cannabis to sexual stimulants, she tells Allure, “We owe it to ourselves,” as she was told that the ingredient is “the holy grail,” and I happen to agree. Now, her former dream is a reality, and she’s created a gorgeous line with high-end CBD products (and THC-infused products are even available in some markets).
Let’s get this out of the way: The brand’s packaging is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Rather than going for a crunchy aesthetic, High on Love has opted for a chic, upscale vibe, and everything it sells comes in bottles so elegant you’ll want to put them on display. The brand sells a CBD-only line (which I reviewed for this article) made with hemp seed oil for those in non-legal states, as well as a cannabis line complete with THC for legal states (edible chocolate body paint that’ll give you a buzz, anyone?).
It’s true that right now, CBD is trendy. While this means cannabis is rightfully becoming destigmatized, it also means the ingredient is everywhere and in everything. While we need more research, current evidence suggests that CBD can aid in pain relief, stimulate blood blow, and act as an anti-inflammatory. Before you buy a hemp product, however, it’s still important to check where it comes from, and all of High On Love’s hemp comes from Canada and is made with natural ingredients.
Most of High On Love’s current product line is created for people with vulvas, which is a part of the body with mucus membranes — perfect for absorbing CBD. When I rubbed Stimulating O’Gel onto my clit — one to two pumps, as directed — it began to tingle. Then, after waiting five minutes, I grabbed my favorite wand vibrator and essentially came my face off. The O’Gel is water-based, and Mustone says it doubles as a latex-friendly lubricant (avoid anything oil-based in conjunction with condoms as it degrades latex).
High On Love also sells Stimulating Orgasm Oil, which when applied, felt like a vaginal massage. This isn’t a bad thing. Before using, I ran a hot bath filled with the brand’s Sensual Bath Oil. I was on my period and experiencing heavy cramps, and the pain-relieving properties of CBD are perfect for periods. The bath was just what I needed. After I got out, I applied the orgasm oil and felt glamorous as hell. I was relaxed, moisturized, and my cramps were subdued. Was it the warm bath or the hemp seed oil? Does it matter? I (and my vagina) felt fantastic. Such wellness products are not only extra lovely when you’re on your period, but Mustone says are just the ticket for menopausal people or those who experience pain and dryness during penetrative sex.
Perhaps the most brilliant product, however, is its Chocolate Body Paint. Why is it brilliant? Well, for those who like to enjoy their cannabis sexual wellness products with some, well, cannabis, you can lick chocolate off your partner’s body when you have the munchies. You don’t even need a partner, I applied some chocolate body paint on my hands and enjoyed it all by myself. Likewise, while the Sensual Massage Oil is a sure way to a happy ending on date night, you can also use it alone like I did, and give yourself a foot massage while watching Netflix.
