CBD came hot onto the scene over the last few years with the promise of reduced anxiety, restful sleep….and yes, better sex. Just in time for Valentine's Day, we rounded up some of the best CBD gifts perfect to heat up your February 14th.

But first, a short CBD primer: CBD, short for cannabidiol, is the chemical compound derived from the marijuana and hemp plant. CBD is now in everything from beauty lotions to gummies for its relaxing qualities. It's even in dog food. Originally used for epilepsy and to help with cancer treatments, people swear that CBD helps with a slew of other health conditions like back pain, skin flare-ups, osteoarthritis and more, including heightened sensation during sex. Many of these CBD solutions are said to help increase blood flow, heighten sensitivity, relieve tension and stress.

1. Saint Jane: Microdose Lip Gloss

This high-shine luxury gloss delivers just the right amount of glam with micro amounts of CBD. Used throughout the day, you’ll get small amounts of CBD (often referred to as “microdosing”) to help you relax and destress before your hot date.

Rich with antioxidant-rich and nourishing ingredients to keep your lips moist, this gloss also contains 50mg of CBD per bottle. You may taste hints of botanicals like sunflower, chamomile and aloe while you condition your lips. All Saint Jane's glosses are vegan, cruelty-free, non-toxic and sustainably sourced. Available on their website here and other retailers.

While for many people CBD is a wonder ingredient (for all of the reasons we mentioned above), it’s also worth noting that cannabis, which contains THC, the psychoactive part of the plant, has also been found to have it’s own unique benefits and enhance sex drive. Remember, CBD is legal and can be purchased anywhere and shipped across state lines. But, if you are buying a product that also has THC you’ll want to check the legality in your state. As of January 2020, cannabis is legal recreationally in 11 states and medically in 31. This handy map below helps show the breakdown.
