FAST COMPANY'S TOP 10 INNOVATIONS MAKING WOMEN'S LIVES BETTER IN 2016

Our picks of the companies that have carefully designed products to improve the quality of women's lives.

 

Technology designed for women exploded in 2016, with new products hitting the market ranging from wearable trackers for expectant mothers to networking apps to help female professionals get ahead. "The online consumer market of women is a new phenomenon" in part because investors are waking up to the opportunity, says Anu Duggal, founding partner of the Female Founders Fund, a firm that invests in women-led startups. "The purchasing power of women is massive and becoming clearer."

Many of the female founders that made our list struggled for years to raise capital, but were able to convince investors in their vision through persistence and creativity (and of course, a solid business pitch). Miki Agrawal from Thinx, a period underwear maker, tells us she requested that one of her male investors wear a maxi pad during an entire meeting to get him to empathize with what women experience. Others like Morena Simatic, cofounder of wearables startup Bellabeat, had little trouble raising financing for a product designed specifically for women rather than a pink version of an existing product.

 Five years ago, Harvard Business Review conducted a landmark survey of professional women and found that most felt vastly underserved in the marketplace compared to men. That's starting to change. "Women were a neglected category, until recently," says Simatic.

To compile this list, we asked a range of investors and entrepreneurs and solicited feedback from dozens of women. Here are their picks, in no particular order.8. SEX AND SEXUAL HEALTH: FORIA

Two words: Vaginal cannabis. Many of the women we spoke to raved about Foria Relief, a cocoa butter-based cannabis for the vagina that is designed to help with menstrual cramps and other sexual health issues. That accompanies Foria Pleasure, a product that aims to increase sexual pleasure through a lubricant spray. As one happy customer described the experience: "(It was) like my vagina was kicking back on the beach in Mexico, without a care in the world." Sex and sexual health is a notoriously underfunded space, but Foria has garnered rave reviews from users and continues to sell well in Colorado and California.

Cannasexuality

Los Angeles Sex Educator turned “Cannasexual” advisor Ashley Manta further discussed intimacy in the expo’s lecture room, displaying said products. To the young married couples just starting out, she shared, communication is key to a happy relationship.

“The most important thing I’m going to teach you is how to open your mouth and make words come out,” Manta laughed. “Communication is the key to everything in relationships. For a young couple about to be married, being able to process difficult emotions together in a supportive way is crucial.”

Cannabis, Manta added, is the perfect substance for a honeymoon for many reasons. Manta said alcohol is a big variable, stating it could be a social lubricant, as many claim, or it could lead to arguments, withdrawing behavior, and the typical hangover. She further stated that there is no way to imbibe alcohol without having the typical side effects, other than intentionally consuming only a small amount, which rarely happens during a traditional alcohol-laden wedding reception.

“Cannabis allows more customization,” Manta explained. “A couple could begin the day with a back rub using medicated lotion, then shotgun a hit off of a joint as a foreplay tool. Foria’s topical could be added, with a 30-minute makeout session while waiting for the effect. The happy couple could then vape with sleepy indica and curl up together and cuddle.”

The abovementioned scenarios don’t have analogs for alcohol use, and Manta added that cannabis is highly conducive to experimentation and creative playfulness, helping couples feel more present in their bodies by heightening sensation.

Margaret Cho Talks Marijuana Lube

The HIGH TIMES Interview: Margaret Cho

Your comedy is so raunchy and bawdy. What relationship does pot have to sex for you?

Pot puts me in touch with my body. It’s something that helps you let go of inhibitions, but in a way that’s safe, not in a way that’s like you don’t care what’s happening to you. You can just really feel and enjoy what’s happening to you; it’s a great enhancement and a great aphrodisiac. It’s something that puts you at ease and transitions you from whatever is the real world to the sensual world, which is all internal.

I think that marijuana is a very effective tool in dissolving all of the social constructs around sex. I would recommend pot for any kind of sexual encounter, or if you have issues in sexuality that pot might help you release.

All of my experiences with sex and pot have always been positive—I really couldn’t imagine sexuality without it. Why would you want to? If you have something that really works, you should utilize it. I think that people don’t connect sexuality and pot as much as they should. And the best thing: marijuana lube!

6 ways marijuana is being consumed without lighting up
by Clint Davis of ABC10 News KGTV San Diego 
ABC 10 News KGTV San Diego

 

Smoking a joint is so old-fashioned.

As marijuana use becomes more legal and mainstream in the U.S., users are coming up with creative ways the substance can be consumed.

Listed below are six forms in which pot is currently being marketed and sold.

Marijuana Butter

Recipes for pot-laced butter are readily available online and several companies sell the substance under various brand names. Marijuana butter often reportedly contains elevated concentrations of THC, the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users a high. A 2014 story alleged that eight people at a birthday party in Spain were hospitalized after unknowingly eating a cake that was baked with marijuana butter.

Breath Spray

Late last year, an Oakland, California-based company launched a line of breath sprays that were infused with THC. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, one option “tastes minty, sweet and spiked with a bitter medicinal extract flavor.” The effects of marijuana mouth spray take just a few minutes to set in.

Sexual Lubricant

This is arguably one of the most creative uses for marijuana since the substance started becoming legal in recent years. California-based Foria sells a pot-infused sexual lubricant that is aimed at women. According to the Daily Mail, the spray uses the “relaxing properties of cannabis” to make sex better.

Tea

Creative marijuana users have been making drinks out of pot for decades but the Internet makes it easier than ever to find a recipe. An Ohio woman temporarily lost custody of her newborn daughter in September after admittedly drinking marijuana tea while pregnant. The woman claimed the tea helped with morning sickness and that she researched the health ramifications of the drink heavily.

Cotton Candy

KandyCare, a company that makes pot-infused sweets, has produced possibly the only cotton candy that will give consumers more than just a sugar high. The company’s Cotton Kandy is available in two flavors: Phaded Pink and Blazed Blue. Each package contains 55 milligrams of THC, which is an amount meant for people with a “high tolerance,” according to experts on medical marijuana.

Lotion

Colorado-based Apothecanna offers a line of skincare products derived from pot. According to the company, the lotions won’t result in a failed drug test but may provide some level of high.

How to Use Cannabis During Sex

Via the New Cannabis Media Platform:

MerryJane Foria Cannabis Lube

by Katie Shapiro Follow @Kshapiromedia

I had just returned from a girls weekend getaway in Ojai. It was Monday, April 20th. Half Baked was on repeat on the Esquire Channel. My Timberado Peace Pipe in rotation with my dude on the couch.

Cannabis is a constant in our lives: me as a writer and filmmaker, him as an enthusiast and a home grower. We love to smoke together: on morning walks with the dog, in the mountains, before dinner out, during dinner in, watching films, pre-sex and post-sex. Now we can even enjoy cannabis during sex.

In January, he got a free Foria sample at the Winter X Games in Aspen. Our first experience was fun—him pouring the entire tester size vile directly on me and in me, and us immediately getting down. It was great sex (as per usual), but I didn’t have that euphoric, mind blowing orgasm that so many of the sensationalized reviews of this cannabis-laced lubricant product were touting when it first launched. 

A few days later, we went to Native Roots Apothecary to purchase our own bottle. Foria was first released exclusively at the successful chain of dispensaries in Colorado and today, it’s available at 50 dispensaries throughout the state and at 100 medical dispensaries in California. The cannabis oil blended with liquid coconut oil is chemical and pesticide-free, but keep in mind it’s not recommended for use with latex condoms. The cherry on top, if you will? It’s safe to ingest and gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan.

Honestly, we have only used it about three times over the past few months, including the one time I used it solo for some entertainment on one of my frequent drives from Aspen to Denver. I liked using it, had solid orgasms with it, but still wasn’t completely sold.

Using it on 4/20 was different. After five days away, we were obviously craving each other. Plus, I had official research to do. In anticipation of him coming over after working late, I applied it myself in the bathroom. The recommended usage is to “apply 3-5 sprays directly onto the clitoris, inner and outer labia, and inside the vagina. Internal application provides the highest absorption.” I’ve discovered that the more sprays, the better—just ensure all of your lady parts are sufficiently coated (8 is my magic number). In just minutes, I started to feel aroused. Partly due to the anticipation of having sex with him and partly due to the warm sensation I felt in my vagina.

The natural position I defaulted to in putting it on myself forces the bottle upside down, which makes for an uneven spray and causes leakage. It’s a far easier application when he applies it during foreplay. In Colorado, the cost is $50 for a 10ML bottle and $100 for a 30ML bottle with medical cardholders getting a slight discount ($44 and $88, respectively). It’s a high price point for lubrication and even for a cannabis product, so the design could use an update. Without a strong seal, the oil has already started to erase the brand stamp on the exterior. But the black box it comes in is tastefully imprinted with a tiny gold pot leaf and lettering—giving it a sleek and sexy look and making it perfect as a gift for your wife, best friend, or that bride-to-be.

Foria also instructs to “allow 30-40 minutes to relax and fully absorb the medicine—a great time for foreplay or sensual massage.” I had timed it perfectly. After a few hits on the couch, we started kissing and then pretty much ran to my bedroom, kicking things into high gear. Clearly more lubricated than in my natural state, I was more DTF than ever. A common misconception in the world of cannabis-infused topicals is that they make you high. They don’t. What Foria does do is heighten the sense of awareness in the best place possible. For this skeptic, the effects finally started to feel real. The third time was a charm. I was super sensitive and as he started licking me, my entire body started to feel the buzz. Focus also comes with using Foria, making sex feel deeper, more intense and like it could last forever. After a marathon romp, we both came together, my orgasm this time something of a marijuana miracle. I was left shaking and then, ridiculously relaxed. I get it now.

As for him, more than anything, it provides a great alternative lubricant. If your lady requires a little extra help, the price point probably keeps it from being used as a primary aid. As a cannabis connoisseur, I love it. It’s experiencing marijuana in a totally new and different way. Since marijuana is something both of us already appreciate together, using it adds another level of enjoyment. And I like the taste of it—the oil isn’t overpowering, but is definitely noticeable, somewhat similar to the lingering taste in edibles or a tincture. But whether you’re high or not while using Foria? One doesn’t have an effect on the other. It just adds another pleasurable element to a hot, stoned sex sesh.

After the last few nights of reviewing this product, Foria is likely going to become another constant in our lives.
