ELLEMENTA

By: Melissa Pierce  |  May 23, 2017

I’d heard there was such a thing as “weed lube,” so my partner and I decided to give it a try.

The first thing I learned about weed lube is this: Don’t let your boyfriend lead. He’ll learn all he can from sites like Reddit, but most of the posts about weed lube he finds will not be written by women. Or he will read the packaging and extrapolate based on his own experiences, which will not be close enough to yours to be relevant. I should have known this already as my first experiences smoking and eating cannabis with his guidance were equally as fraught. He may have more experience with cannabis than I do, but he has zero experience being a woman in her 40s.

What I really should have done was to check in with other women.

From his perspective, Foria Pleasure definitely made sex seem better for me. According to him, I was more vocal and appeared to enjoy everything more exuberantly. But from my perspective, sex with my partner is usually pretty wonderful. Plus this sex had a lot of foreplay as we had to wait nearly an hour for the Foria Pleasurebrand of lubricant to work. So I can’t say for certain that I noticed a big difference from our other sessions where foreplay was plentiful.

He says we need to try again.

I say maybe I just need to go out and have bad sex with and without Foria and get back to him.

He doesn’t get my humor.

I gave the bottle to a friend of mine – let’s call her Anne – who used it solo. She swears using it gave her mind blowing orgasms that lasted and lasted. I was happy for her. Dang if I should have consulted my local girl gang about how to use Foria instead of my boyfriend because it sounds like I missed out on some next level sexy time.

I don’t want you, dear reader, to miss out. So here is the skinny on Foria:

1. Foria isn’t actually a lube.

If you normally use a lubricant, you should probably have a bottle of your favorite handy for actual lubing.

Foria comes in a tiny spray bottle and is meant to be used as a “pre-lube.” It’s about the size and shape of a breath spray.

The effect is supposed to be relaxing while also acting as an aphrodisiac. Each spritz contains about 2.5mg of THC so you don’t need a lot. The website instructs you to use four or five sprays on your clitoris, labia, and vaginal opening. I used five just on my vaginal opening as instructed by my boyfriend. Anne says she uses about eight all over her lady parts because she’s a pro.

2. The effects of Foria Pleasure can take up to an hour to start working.

Don’t feel as if you have to rush into the action after application. Put your feet up, light some candles, think about how you just sprayed your hooha with an aphrodisiac that resembles a bottle of breath spray, laugh uncomfortably then riotously… relax, good things come to those who wait.

3. Foria Pleasure is coconut oil based.

The website cautions that you should not use the product with latex-based toys or condoms because coconut oil degrades latex. If you have waited 40 minutes to one hour for it to work, are already feeling that frisky discoin your underpants, and are also using your regular lubricant, I can’t imagine a few sprays of Foria actually matter that much in terms of latex degradation. But you never know, so safety first.

4. Because Foria Pleasure has THC in it, it’s not available everywhere.

You can only buy Foria at dispensaries in California and Colorado. I hear they are coming out with a THC-free variety of Foria this June so that should be good news for adventurous women everywhere.

Bottom Line: Trying out Foria that one time was really fun for my boyfriend and for me, but since Anne isn’t giving back my bottle of Foria anytime soon, I’ll have to either buy some more next time I’m in a state where it’s sold or make my own.

If you don’t happen to live in California or Colorado and can’t wait for Foria to get to your area, you can always make your own cannabis infused coconut oil. Here is a handy recipe.

Happy Experimenting!

RAVISHLY REVIEWS FORIA AWAKEN

"I'm not sure whether or not you can get addicted to a lube made from a drug, but I've been pretty hooked on this stuff ever since I first gave it a try."

DANIELLE PAGE | 04.20.17 12:01AM

Operating your vagina without taking advantage of the latest sex products on the market is kind of like still using a flip phone. Sure, it gets the job done. But you don't know what you're missing out on.

One recent addition to the wonderful world of things you can put in your V? A new women's pleasure lube from FORIA. Known for their cannabis-based products, FORIA's new formula, Awaken, harnesses the power of CBD (short for cannabidiol). As far as products made from the ganja go, you're probably used to hearing about the ones made with THC — aka the chemical responsible for the mind-altering effects of marijuana. The big difference between the two is that CBD won't leave you feeling high. But it has been loosely linked to health benefits like relief from stress and anxiety, and even alleviating minor aches and pains.

While the jury is still out on research to support whether or not CBD can lead to a better orgasm, the folks at FORIA claim it's the key to a more intense climax. In fact when tested, those who tried the product said they experienced "enhanced sensation, deeper orgasm, increased desire, improved lubrication, heightened awareness and full body relaxation." Count me in.

There are few things I won't try (especially where better orgasms are concerned), so I gave Awaken a spin during one of my solo sessions. Here's what it's like to get yourself off with CBD lube.

The Application.

Most of the lubricants I've used come in some type of pump or squeeze set-up, but FORIA Awaken comes as a spray. As soon as I experienced its light, albeit somewhat watery consistency, I understood why. Applying it probably wouldn't have been as messy if I had a partner spraying me down. But trying to operate the bottle's pump upside down was a bit awkward.

I followed the directions which said to "apply liberally directly to the clitoris, inner and outer labia and inside the vagina," noting that the typical "serving size" is four or more sprays. I started with four, then added a few extra for good measure once I got the bottle working. It's definitely worth noting that (at least to me) this stuff smells incredible, kind of like a fresher version of mint chocolate chip ice cream. To that end, Awaken is also edible — so no worries if your partner wants to go down on you after you've already lubed up.

What It Felt Like.

Once I was thoroughly lubed up, I kind of expected to experience a difference immediately... but no dice. A few minutes later, I started feeling majorly turned on — and I hadn't even started touching myself. It almost felt like my clit was gently pulsating. I let that sensation play out for a few more minutes, wondering if it might get stronger or if this was the peak. After spending five minutes or so on that pulsing plateau, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands (you know, literally).

FORIA's test users weren't kidding about the heightened sensitivity that happens when you're using this stuff. For the sake of this article (and because what's the fun in orgasming immediately?), I had to slow down the typical pace I use when I'm rubbing one out. It took some time for me to get used to how sensitive all parts of my vagina were thanks to being coated in this mythical CBD ingredient — especially my clit. I ended up unintentionally edging myself a few times throughout the process, backing away from the big 'O' and building it back up again.

The Orgasm.

Not going to lie, the grand finale wasn't anywhere near as good as the process of getting there. And since diddling with CBD continued to measure up to what I'd heard other users say about the product throughout my experience, I was expecting this orgasm to pretty much be earth-shattering. It wasn't the best one that I've had — but certainly more intense than if I hadn't used Awaken to get me there.

The Verdict.

Would I try Awaken again? You bet. I'm not sure whether or not you can get addicted to a lube made from a drug, but I've been pretty hooked on this stuff ever since I first gave it a try, and have been recommending it to pretty much anyone who will listen. Also, for you lucky folks who are actually getting laid on the regular, I can only imagine what it would feel like to use this stuff while you're making love. No but really, please try it and report back.

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.

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.

8 Sexy Marijuana Products For The Chillest Valentine's Day Ever

By: SARAH JACOBY | FEBRUARY 10, 2017

If you haven't already heard, everyone's new favorite aphrodisiac is one that's actually been around for a long time: weed. Seriously, experts are making a (very convincing) case for bringing cannabis into the bedroom. 

That's why we're especially glad to see that the marijuana industry has already made intimacy a priority with lube, tinctures, and a plethora of other products specifically for sex. And no, we're not talking about that dildo pipe. (Mostly we're just sad that it's been sold out for so long.)

A word of caution, though: Because most of these products contain compounds found in actual cannabis, they're not legal in all 50 states. So, if you want to buy 'em, you'll have to track down a retailer from the individual companies' sites or check in with your local dispensary. We promise, it's worth the effort.

So continue on to find the the most fun ways to keep things chill with your valentine.

While we're arguably more in control of and confident about our sexuality than ever, there's still so much we don't know about female arousal. So this month, we're exploring everything you want and need to know about how women get turned on now. Check out more here.

(Refinery29 in no way encourages illegal activity and would like to remind its readers that marijuana usage continues to be an offense under Federal Law, regardless of state marijuana laws. To learn more, click here.)

Pleasure by Foria

Foria's THC-infused coconut oil spray is commonly referred to simply as "weed lube," but that sells it a little short. Sure it helps keep things moving, but this stuff is also great for enhancing stimulation during sex. Plus, the brand also makes suppositories, which are perfect for anal play.

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.

LIVESTRONG.com: Cannabis Infused Female Suppositories Are the Crazy New Cure for Cramps

When you’ve got a case of excruciating PMS cramps, you’d pretty much do anything to stop the pain. Now there’s an innovative solution out on the market — even if it might not be legal in every state.

Here’s the good news: This type of marijuana use isn’t for stoners. A new innovative company called Foria, which is known for cannabis-infused products like lubricants, has just released the “weed tampon.”

It’s the first to hit the market dedicated to treating menstrual cramps, but take note that it’s actually a suppository rather than an absorbent feminine hygiene product.

When it comes to organic sources of pain relief, marijuana is nothing new. It’s used to help with many ailments, including nausea and muscle pain. And with legalization sweeping across U.S. states and its many medical uses — from stopping seizures to treating cancer patients — this bud has gained legitimacy in the health and wellness industry.

The product, Foria Relief, is created “using a delivery system intended to maximize the muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic ‘high,’” says the company’s website.

The cannabis suppositories are made with organic cocoa butter, THC oil and CBD isolate. Some women have reported that it smells like cookie dough or cookie butter. And it keeps getting better: For you ladies that aren’t interested in getting all squinty-eyed, this product can still work for you because the THC won’t make you high.

Here’s how it works: The capsule is blended with a 6-to-1 ratio of THC oil (approximately 60 grams — twice as much as the average joint) to CBD isolate. The THC targets the nerves to block out the pain, while CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, helping relieve muscle spasms.

The company says that the combination of THC and CBD used in the vaginal suppositories are specifically designed to “activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body.”

In short, marijuana’s magical ingredients go straight to where they’re needed.

Thus far, the Food and Drug Administration has neither approved the product nor ran it through clinical trials, but Foria is marketing it as completely safe and user-friendly — claiming the cannabis is grown without pesticides and that the product is made with no harmful contaminants.

The suppositories are currently only available in California and do not require a medical-marijuana card (although they do require a physician’s letter). Check back with the site from time to time to see if it expands into other states.

So far, the product has a four-star rating on its site along with highly positive reviews. Some women have noted relief from cramps within only 20 minutes. There is even talk about it being used as an aid in childbirth.
