Stoner gals, surely you know about the phenomenon that’s been called “cotton vagina” on Urban Dictionary? (Personally, I don’t smoke weed or have a vagina, but hey, I aim to please…)
Dr. Holland says,
“Exactly like dry mouth. It’s the same thing. It’s the drying of the mucus membranes. Now not all pot is going to give you dry mouth, but if you have had a strain that is giving you dry mouth, it will also make you more dry [down there]. In general the thing that makes women dry is the pill. Because there’s all this different mucus that happens throughout your cervical cycle. As Mother Nature designs it, when you’re fertile, you’re wet. But if you’re on the pill, you don’t ovulate; you don’t get that mid-cycle wetness.
I think that coconut oil is excellent for lubrication. I’ve had patients tell me, I’ve had friends tell me, it is better than any other lube they’ve tried. I talk about coconut oil in Moody Bitches. I am a big proponent of coconut oil as a lubricant.
In Ayurveda medicine, they say not to put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t put in your mouth. I’m a big fan of coconut oil! “
P.S. It’s also great in a smoothie when you get the munchies. Win! Win!
