Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil Jump to Recipe
There is a deep-rooted hesitancy when discussing vaginal health by name, despite the fact that nearly half of the world’s population is female. In fact, the Smithsonian Institution notes that research and archiving of feminine products did not begin until the 1970s, likely mirroring the societal discomforts around menstruation. The Smithsonian, too, states the euphemism “feminine hygiene” became the preferred term for vaginal care in all its forms to avoid “direct reference to female anatomy.”
But why shouldn’t we discuss vaginal care directly? Menstruation and menopause are experienced by nearly 50% of the world, and discomfort and irritation are all-too common.
For these reasons and due to the host of gynecological disorders that afflict women, self-care should truly start with the vagina, in the form of Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil.
Gynecological Disorders – The Symptoms
The vagina is an incredibly sensitive area. Monthly cycles and menopause cause discomfort that can range from uncomfortable to debilitating.
Conditions such as gynecological cancers, endometriosis, and vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (VAIN) are added layers of discomfort on top of what women already experience. Symptoms include vaginal dryness and vaginal pain, particularly during intercourse (which in turn leads to anxiety around the act of intimacy). These symptoms, too, are experienced by women in treatment for bladder, breast, colon and rectal cancer.
Most women turn to over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, such as aspirin or naproxen for pain relief – but could cannabis help decrease the need for these OTCs?
Cannabis And The Vagina – The Research
Vaginal application of cannabinoids, while limited in research, has shown significant promise. This is somewhat unsurprising because THC and CBD have shown tremendous potential in a variety of ailments and symptoms. THC is well-known for its pain-relieving properties, while CBD has quickly jumped into the favors (and medicine cabinets) of many due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties.
A recent review of cannabis and gynecological diseases, appropriately titled “Cannabinoids and Gynecological Diseases” and published in Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids notes the importance of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in vaginal health. The ECS regulates almost all levels of female reproduction, at all stages - and, researchers note, dysregulation of the ECS is associated with “the development of gynecological disorders from fertility to cancer.” They go on to state that, due to the way in which cannabinoids interact with the ECS, the compounds could play a significant role in future therapies for gynecological disorders.
Those with endometriosis, too, have indicated they benefit from cannabis use for symptom management. Researchers in New Zealand conducted an anonymous survey for those with endometriosis who self-identify as using cannabis. The survey found that:
- 95.5% of respondents used cannabis to improve pain relief
- 95.5% of respondents used cannabis to improve sleep
- 81.4% of respondents indicated cannabis reduced their normal medication usage
- 59% of respondents were able to completely stop medication
- 40% of respondents were able to stop taking opioids
While this research is preliminary and self-reported, the benefits of cannabinoids for vaginal application hold untold promise. Cannabis and the vagina is not new territory for MÜV - our sister operation in Arizona has produced a vaginal intimacy oil for years, and it is finally making its way to Florida.
Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil
Ease was designed to help her ease into any moment, whether that's dinner out, grocery shopping, exercise, or her most intimate moments.
The vaginal topical oil was constructed using all-natural ingredients you can trust (and pronounce): coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and cannabinoids.
Coconut oil is deeply hydrating and has been used as moisturizer and vaginal lubricant for centuries. It more recently has been studied for its antimicrobial properties, which have shown promise in a host of topical skin conditions. Fractionated coconut oil, or coconut oil with lauric acids removed, are also included in Ease due to their immensely hydrating properties.
Vitamin E oil is the third piece of the hydration elixir. Vitamin E has shown a host of benefits, including as an antioxidant. This is important as antioxidants help to eliminate free radicals, compounds that can cause harm to the human body at a cellular level. In fact, recent research has shown free radicals may be to blame in some cases of vaginitis, or inflammation of the vagina that can cause pain and itching sensations.
Cannabinoid THC is added due to its reported pain-relieving properties, and CBD (in a 1:1 THC/CBD variety) for its anti-inflammatory properties. This transmucosal delivery of cannabinoids has resulted in increased hydration, easing pain, and easing cramps. A secondary reported benefit of using Ease includes increased sex drive and heightened sensations during intercourse for both formulations.
Ease is not a lubricant, it’s not just an oil – it’s what should be considered as an important part of vaginal care.
How To Open Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil
Ease, like all marijuana products, comes in child-resistant packaging. To open:
- Align the fingerprint mark on the lid with the arrow on the bottle
- Hold the bottle in one hand and the cap in the other
- Press on the fingerprint and pull the cap and bottle away from one another
The lid will pop right off. Note, there is another small lid that fits snugly over the nozzle.
How To Apply Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil
Applying Ease can be achieved in three ways: by spraying directly onto the vagina, labia, and clitoris; spraying onto fingers and massaging onto vagina, labia, and clitoris; or spraying onto a tampon before insertion. Note, those with endometriosis should consult with their physician regarding tampon application.
Frequently Asked Questions About Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil
New products, and especially items going on such a sensitive area, bring up new questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Ease.
Is Ease Produced Anywhere Else By MÜV?
It is! Ease is produced under the name MÜV Enhance in Arizona and has been enjoyed by patients and consumers for over 3 years. Users have reported relief from cramps, dryness, increased libido, and heightened sensations from Enhance.
Can I Use Other Cannabis Products With Ease?
Absolutely! Stacking products, or using different delivery formats to achieve desired effects, is a great way to tailor medical cannabis to meet your specific needs.
How Does Ease Feel When Applying?
Ease feels like a lightly viscous oil, somewhere between a gel moisturizer and an oil.
Does Ease Produce Any Effects?
Patients have reported a tingling sensation and arousal as a secondary effect of Ease Cannabis Oil.
This is not uncommon with cannabis – according to Strainprint global data, over 1,700 women have tracked 5,385 medication sessions with a recorded outcome of increased libido.
Can I Use A Latex Condom With Ease?
Because latex break down in oils and becomes less effective, it is not recommended to use latex condoms with Ease Vaginal Cannabis Oil.
Lambskin condoms, however, may be used with oil-based topicals like Ease.
Is Vitamin E Oil Safe For Vaginal Application?
While there is no explicit research on vitamin E oil and the vagina, it has been used as a natural lubricant and moisturizer for centuries. Research on topical application of vitamin E oil has shown the vitamin provides possible antioxidant and moisturizing properties.
Is Coconut Oil Safe For Vaginal Application?
There is no research specific to coconut oil and vaginal application, but it, too, has been used for centuries as a natural moisturizer and lubricant. Research on topical application of coconut oil has shown possible antimicrobial and moisturizing properties.
Fractionated coconut oil, too, is incredibly hydrating, and is often used as a moisturizer.
Is Ease Lube?
Ease is not a cannabis lube – think of it as a pre-lube.
Lubricants are thick and intended to eliminate friction during penetration and can eliminate the positive sensations of intercourse. Ease, on the other hand, is a thin oil that helps to potentially ease pain while increasing sensitivity and sensation.
