Marijuana Lube: Recipes, reviews, benefits, where it's for sale and what to look for

Published 

With 63 million Americans now living in states where recreational marijuana is legal, the weed industry is churning out countless new products for first-timers and veteran stoners alike. A typical dispensary could sell everything from THC-infused chocolate and microdose mints to pot concentrates and weed soda.

Among these novelties, you may also find marijuana salves and creams, meant to be applied to (and absorbed by) your skin. These cannabis topicals, as they're called, are ideal for relief from localized pain and inflammation, and since they're largely nonpsychoactive, they don't actually get you high. 

But one topical in particular seems to have captured our imaginations, and it's not hard to figure out why: The very combination of the words "marijuana" and "lube" hint at some interesting possibilities. If your curiosity is piqued — and you know it is — then read on to explore this new frontier in stoned sex.

What is marijuana lube, exactly?

At the moment, there are two major brands of cannabis-infused oils marketed as aphrodisiacs: Foria and Bond. Foria bills its flagship product, Foria Pleasure, as an "all-natural sensual enhancement oil designed specifically for women," while Bond calls its product a "sensual oil."

In both cases, the liquid itself is a combination of refined cannabis extract, derived from the power of the marijuana plant, and regular coconut oil. The lube comes in a sleek little spray bottle.

5 other ways to use medical cannabis and the hottest products for seniors

Medical cannabis has advanced far beyond the days of simple raw cannabis buds. With medical legalization and adult-use laws, those raw flowers can be refined into a wide range of different types of products for more targeted therapies.

Specifically, seniors and Baby Boomers are being targeted with a new wave of no-euphoria and low-euphoria medical marijuana products and modalities for age-related medical conditions.

We highlight some of the most popular, widely available, high-quality, award-winning ones and the medical conditions patients are using them for.

Science note: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main therapeutically active ingredient in cannabis and causes euphoria. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most common active molecule in cannabis but it does not cause euphoria. Cannabinol (CBN) is a degraded form of THC, and causes sedation. Lastly, tetrahydrocannabinol-acid (THCa) is the initial 'acid' form of THC, and does not cause euphoria.

TOPICAL

PRO
Won’t cause euphoria; very tame modality for new patients; targets joint and muscle pain and also can treat skin disorders. 

CON
Works locally, not throughout the body; can have an aroma; can stain clothing.

Foria Pleasure
Foria, based in Los Angeles, offers a game changer for women suffering from genital dryness and pain. The infused coconut oil prelube comes in a spray bottle and promotes relaxation, increased blood flow and lubrication. It also reduces pain and tension, without a head high.

Jane St. Journal, Women and Weed

The History of Women and Weed

It’s Women’s History Month! Marijuana and the matriarchy actually go way back. Call em’ pot princesses, ganja goddesses, stiletto stoners, cannabis queens, or merely women who like weed.

“Stigma has created this idea of the lazy stoner, of people being irresponsible and not productive, but if women can take that back, it shows all the ways cannabis continues to help people,” says Natalie Ginsberg, policy and advocacy manager at the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.

Both women and cannabis have a shared reputation for healing. “Women have a history of being caretakers,” says Ginsberg. The medical cannabis movement that grew out of Santa Cruz, California, in the early Nineties was in large part led by women, she points out.

The country’s oldest, continuously operating medical cannabis collective, the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana, for instance, was co-founded in Santa Cruz by Mike and Valerie Corral, after Valerie discovered that cannabis stopped her epileptic seizures. Her 95-year-old mother, Aurora Leveroni, a.k.a. Nonna Marijuana, spent the past several decades cooking gourmet Italian edibles to treat her daughter’s illness.

In her book Tokin’ Women: A 4,000 Year Herstory, Ellen Komp, deputy director of California NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Law), begins the tale of women and weed in the third millennium BC when both goddesses and plants were exalted for their healing powers. The Sumerian goddess Ishtar, for example, was associated with cannabis — such as when when people would burn kaneh bosm {cannabis} incense in her honor.

Of course, among all the reefer’s medicinal properties for men and women alike, pot for periods is a no brainer. Back in 1890, Queen Victoria used a cannabis tincture to ease the pain of her cramps. And way before that, eleventh century European women used a cannabis ointment to “disperse the swelling” from premenstrual swollen breasts (weed is known to have anti-inflammatory properties). Meanwhile, Mayan and Aztec women took baths full of medicinal herbs, including cannabis, for menstrual relief.

Today, pot for PMS is a growing market. The Whoopi & Maya line of cannabis period products includes everything from medicated hot cocoa to rubbing salves to herbal bath salts, while Foria medicated suppositories provide topical relief straight to the uterine region where cramps originate. Foria’s cannabis lubricant also helps women achieve orgasm during sex.

The Crazy Trick That Made Anal Sex Super Easy & Fun

Would You Try Cannabis Lubricant For New Sensations During Sex?

Posted On February 18, 2017 By 

Recreational drugs for your lady parts? Is that really a thing? One Californian company certainly thinks so. Recently, the Aphrodite Group created a stir in the online alternative community by creating a line of products under the name of “Foria.” So what do those products do? Why, they get your vagina stoned, of course.

Check out Foria’s website and you’ll learn that this new line of pioneering products is a “cannabis-infused sexual enhancement oil.” That’s with regards to the range of “Foria Pleasure” products, anyway.

Essentially a cannabis lubricant spray, Foria Pleasure “is a therapeutic oil designed to enhance female pleasure and is made with all natural liquid coconut oil (MCT) and purified pharmaceutical-grade cannabis oil.” Aphrodite uses residual-free, highly refined, standardized, pure cannabis extract in order to provide maximum bioavailability.

It’s pretty crazy-sounding stuff. So, how the heck does it work?

How to use Foria cannabis lubricant

The range of Foria Pleasure products all come in handy spray bottles. Presumably, the coconut oil is a fractionated version, meaning it remains in liquid form no matter what the temperature. This oil contains a certain percentage of infused THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis. 

Here’s what the “official” Foria guidelines stipulate for maximizing this curious sexual product:

1. Apply four to eight sprays directly onto the vagina. Internal application provides the highest absorption. As everyone’s relationship to THC is unique, we encourage you to experiment to find what strength is just right for your body.

2. Wait up to 15 minutes for “full activation.” The company suggests employing foreplay and sensual massage to while away the minutes.

Not the most detailed of instructions, but you get the idea. Spray it onto (and into) your lady parts, and wait for the magic to happen. However, there are a few things which you probably need to know before spraying this stuff willy-nilly and expecting your world to be turned inside out:

  • Foria isn’t technically a lubricant. It is, in fact, designed as a “pre-lubricant,” with those 15 minutes of waiting designed to allow the bioactive compounds in the coconut oil to soak into your lady bits and start altering sensations.
  • Foria isn’t friends with your typical latex condom. Some people find that it can actually melt the latex. Not ideal if that’s your key form of contraception. It is, however, kosher with polyurethane and nitrile condoms.
  • Foria can actually take up to an hour for the THC to kick in. If you struggle to find foreplay inspiration at the best of times, you might want to hold off on any touchy-feely stuff for around 40 to 50 minutes after application.

Experiences with cannabis lubricant

According to Foria’s creator, Matthew Gerson, women respond to their line of cannabis lubricant in a variety of different ways. Some became considerably stoned after spraying the product into their mouths. Yet, they found no effect at all from applying it to their vagina. Others might not get stoned from applying it orally, but they have a blast when they use it in a sexual propensity. As individuals, it’s hard to say how Foria might be received by our bodies.

Enter, the willing guinea pigs. Unsurprisingly, alternative bloggers and marijuana aficionados have been quick to jump all over the topic of marijuana lubricant. Many have written about their experiences, and here’s just a sample of how they’ve responded to Foria Pleasure:

Ashley Hoffman from Alternet found that in her first few tries, nothing really happened. Then, after applying six sprays to her lady parts, spending an hour or so on foreplay, the THC kicked in. According to Hoffman, “as soon as the licking started, it hit me. There are the drugs. It was an all-over buzzy tingly feeling that spreads the pleasure much further than wherever you’re being directly stimulated. It pulsated like there was a delicate vibrator inside of me, but better. Cloudier. I hadn’t felt anything like it before.”

Marijuana and Sex: How weed affects your sex drive — and can help your performance

By Miles Klee 

Do marijuana and sex go hand in hand?

Many people find that the former can greatly enhance the latter. And this effect doesn't seem to be gender-specific: Weed has been called "the natural Viagra," while some cultivators have bred aphrodisiac strains targeted at women.   

If you haven't combined sex and weed yet, the idea of mixing the two can be a bit daunting. Here's what to expect — and what to keep in mind — if you're thinking about lighting up with your boo in the bedroom. 

How marijuana can improve sex

As with all of marijuana's reported effects, there's no guarantee that it'll spice up your sex life; the reaction is highly dependent on the situation and the people involved. 

Nevertheless, the general sense of uninhibited wellbeing is a commonly cited benefit, according to Dr. Anne Ridley, a clinical sexologist and psychotherapist as well as the owner of Modern Aphrodite, a pleasure boutique in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"Because of the wide range of strains out there ... what may have the arousing or aphrodisiac-like affect on one may not on another," Ridley said in an email. "But typically what I hear from my clients (as well as my own personal experience) is that they feel more relaxed — physically and mentally — in a way that allows them to better connect in the moment to their partner."

That may be due to the "euphoric" feelings brought about by THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. 

You don't have to get high for weed to make sex better. 

Mixing marijuana and sex isn't necessarily about getting so blunted you can't tell which way is up in a 69. Instead, you might take it as an opportunity to explore weed's low-key pleasures.

"There are ways to utilize the positive effects of cannabis — relaxation, pain relief, anxiety reduction, to name a few — without experiencing a psychoactive high," Manta said. "One method is utilizing topical products like massage oil or employing a product that has a 1:1 CBD to THC concentration. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid also found in the plant that has no psychoactive effects but helps bring the body into homeostasis." 

Ridley, meanwhile, is a fan of Foria, a cannabis-based lubricant for vaginal use: "It's not a mental high, since it is applied by a spray onto the vulva," she noted.

What I can say about this topical cannabis is that it directly relaxes the female sex organs and increases arousal while decreasing pain. More women than one would think experience some sort of pain either on the outside or inside of the vagina, sometimes due to hormonal or menstrual cycles, as well as certain positions or trauma after childbirth or otherwise. Cannabis can have a very positive effect for these women in their ability to experience pleasure and healing sexual experiences.

Products like Foria seem suitable for purely recreational purposes as well: Reviewing the marijuana lube for the Frisky, Amelia McDonnell-Parry commented that it makes for a "warm," "tingly," "loosey-goosey" vagina, as well as "an increased, concentrated awareness of that part of your body." At the same time, the effects were "not extreme" and allowed her to keep a clear head — everything you could ask of a sexual aid.

Valentine's Day Marijuana with .Mic

Valentine's Day Marijuana: Weed chocolates, massage lotion and more goodies for your loved one

By Miles Klee 

If you're a bit of a pothead, you probably forgot today was Valentine's Day until you woke up on Tuesday. Heck, maybe you even had to be reminded by the bouquet of flowers on a co-worker's desk. But here's the good news: If your partner is as into marijuana as you are, it's easy to give them the gift of green — and I'm not talking about money.

Cannabis Lube

Finally, when you're ready for the main event — and if you have a vagina — treat yourself to a few sprays of Foria, an "all-natural sensual enhancement oil designed specifically for women." Weed makes sex better in all kinds of ways, of course, but this is the only way to specifically get your genitals stoned (while keeping your head perfectly clear). 

How does it make you feel down there? According to reviewers: "super relaxed," "tingly" and "something like a crazed animal in heat." Sounds like true love all right! Since this stuff is oil-based, though, you can't use it along with a latex condom.
