Answers to Your Burning Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED

  • Will using Kinky Bites or Goodnight Kiss get me high?

    Yes, Kinky Bites and Goodnight Kiss can get you high, they contain THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis. When consumed, THC interacts with receptors in the brain and nervous system, producing the euphoric and psychoactive effects commonly associated with being “high.”

  • Will using oh.hi or oh.hello get me high?

    oh.hi works as a vasodilator, increasing blood flow when applied topically, which generally will not result in intoxicating effects. Similarly, oh.hello, when used vaginally, should not result in an intoxicating effect. When used anally however, the cannabis can be absorbed by the portal nerve, potentially resulting in an intoxicating effect. Variation in intoxicating effects may occur from person to person, due to differences in the endocannabinoid system’s sensitivity. We recommend starting off with a small amount before gradually increasing your dose.

  • If I use Lavinia products, will it show up on a drug test?

    Yes. As THC in Lavinia products is absorbed either topically or ingested, it would appear on a routine drug screening, similar to other methods of cannabis use.

  • Is there any research showing that cannabis makes sex better?

    Yes there is! A 2017 study of about 50,000 participants found that marijuana use led to increased sexual frequency and drive.1 Research conducted through a gynecology office found that female cannabis users had increased sexual drive, improved ability to orgasm, and decreased pain during sex. The women in this study who used cannabis were over two times more likely to report satisfaction with their orgasms.2 An expanding body of research has shown that THC use leads to reduced anxiety during sex, increased sexual desire and pleasure, improved length of sexual encounter, and increased number and quality of orgasms.3,4

    Cannabis works to improve sex through a variety of proposed mechanisms. There are cannabinoid receptors in parts of the brain that regulate the release of oxytocin, a compound that causes intense feelings of pleasure, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which plays multiple roles in sexual functioning. You may have heard of dopamine and serotonin, neurotransmitters that are important feel-good substances in the brain. It is thought that activation of the CB receptors in the brain increases dopamine levels, which is the key to increasing female sexual excitement. THC delivered directly to the vagina or anus may also increase dilation of vessels and blood circulation, leading to increased sexual excitement, heightened perception of touch, and improved orgasm.

  • Why is coconut oil a “bad” lubricant?

    John Mayer said it best when he said “Your body is a wonderland.” Coconut oil is great for a lot of things but it doesn’t belong as part of your sexual experience. Coconut oil can kill bacteria in the area that normally converts glucose to lactic acid which keeps the vulva naturally acidic. By adding in substances that can kill the bacteria the natural pH of the area could rise as a result. The decreased number of good bacteria can cause yeast to overgrow and can lead to severe vaginal yeast infections.

  • Is it safe to consume oh.hi orally? Is it edible?

    While oh.hi and oh.hello are intended for application to the vagina or anus, we don’t want to limit your peak sexual experience. Therefore, both products are safe for oral consumption in small amounts, such as during oral sex with your partner. It’s important to note that if consumed orally, the product will be taken sublingually, potentially leading to a psychoactive effect. So, feel free to explore and enjoy, keeping in mind the potential effects for an even more heightened experience.

When applied vaginally, this promotes an increase in blood flow to the area, which can lead to heightened sensations, arousal, and general muscle relaxation. When applied anally, you will not only have increased blood flow, but may also experience reduced pain and inflammation, and even potential psychoactive effects, such as euphoria. In some instances, this powerful duo has even been shown to amplify orgasms.

  • How does oh.hi interact with my body?

    To really understand about the action of oh.hi, we need to take a step back and think about the complex and oh.so.interesting Endocannabinoid System (ECS) discovered in the body through scientific THC research in the 1990s. Scientists found that ECS is an entire system of receptors called CB1 and CB2 and the natural substances produced in the body that bind to these receptors (these receptors are called endocannabinoids). The natural endocannabinoids are then broken down by specific enzymes in the body when they are not in use. The ECS system is active in all of us naturally and plays a role in many processes affecting almost every system in the body.

    THC is the main component of cannabis and is the part that gets you high. THC interacts with the ECS by binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body, just like the natural endocannabinoids. The action of CBD is less understood but we know it doesn’t bind with the same receptors that THC binds. It is thought that maybe CBD functions by preventing the endocannabinoids from breaking down and therefore keeps larger numbers of these natural molecules active in the circulation

    oh.hi delivers a highly curated selection of THC and CBD peripherally to the pelvic and genital region allowing direct action of the THC and CBD to enhance sexual arousal and orgasm. In addition, the product melts into the vagina or anus and serves as a safe and effective sexual lubricant, improving sexual pleasure even more.

  • What are the benefits of oh.hi for male partners?

    Using oh.hi can offer male partners several benefits during sexual intimacy. The smooth and slippery texture of our silicone lubricant enhances sensation, leading to increased pleasure. Additionally, silicone-based lubricants last longer than water-based alternatives, reducing the need for reapplication and contributing to a more enjoyable experience. By reducing friction, these lubricants can decrease discomfort or irritation, particularly for male partners with sensitivity or chafing. The potential relaxation effects of cannabis-infused lubricants, due to the presence of THC or CBD, may alleviate tension and promote a more relaxed state during sexual activity, enhancing pleasure and intimacy. Some individuals may also experience heightened sensation or arousal, potentially leading to a more intense and satisfying sexual experience. oh.hi is latex condom compatible and can lead to increased pulsation of the vaginal walls, which could potentially enhance sensation for male partners.

  • Can I use oh.hi and oh.hello with a condom or sex toy?

    While oh.hi and oh.hello are not compatible with silicone sex toys, they are safe for use with latex condoms and non-silicone toys. Alternatively, oh.hi and oh.hello can be used with silicone-compatible materials such as hard plastic, stainless steel, or borosilicate glass.

  • Can oh.hi cause a yeast infection and will it affect the pH balance of my vagina?

    Silicone lubricants are less likely to cause yeast infections compared to other types of lubricants, but individual reactions may vary. If you have concerns or experience any unusual symptoms after using silicone lubricant, it’s a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider for personalized advice.

  • Can I use it while pregnant or breastfeeding?

    The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists strongly advises pregnant women against using products containing THC. Potential risks to the fetus, including lower birth weight, stillbirth, and alterations in neural development, have been identified. While there have been limited studies assessing these risks, it’s established that THC can cross the placenta to the fetus. Additionally, THC is present in breast milk, making its use during breastfeeding not recommended. Prioritizing the well-being of both the mother and the child, caution is urged in the use of THC-containing products during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  • Will oh.hi help me with my vaginal dryness due to menopause?

    Yes, using a lubricant can indeed help alleviate vaginal dryness caused by menopause. Menopause often leads to a decrease in estrogen levels, which can result in vaginal dryness, itching, and discomfort during intercourse. Lubricants can provide moisture and reduce friction, making sex more comfortable.

  • Will I break out after using oh.hi?

    If you experience a breakout or any adverse reaction after using a lubricant, immediately cease its use and cleanse the affected area with mild soap and water. If symptoms persist or worsen, seek guidance from a healthcare provider.
