6 Weed Products Your Vagina Will Be Totally Cool With

We all know how marijuana is traditionally used, but as legalization has become more common across the country, some considerably more interesting 420-friendly goodies have hit the market, including ones geared specifically toward…your vagina.

From easing the pain of menstrual cramps to giving lube a little somethin' extra, we pulled together the cannabis products designed specifically with women in mind.

1. Foria's weed suppositories

Though they're often called "weed tampons," Foria weed suppositories aren't meant to absorb menstrual blood, but they could relieve cramps. Just put one in and let the 60 mg of THC, 10 mg of CBD, and organic fair-trade cocoa butter get to work blocking the pain receptors in your uterus. Two women over at Buzzfeed tried them, and while one got impatient and ended up just eating it (typical), the other said it actually worked wonders on her cramps.

2. Whoopi & Maya's medical cannabis line

After suffering from severe menstrual cramps and then watching her daughter and granddaughters go through the same agony, Whoopi Goldberg partnered with Om Edibles founder Maya Elisabeth and launched a line of weed products to spare women everywhere this experience. The salve, tincture, bath soak, and edible chocolate provide luxurious cures for period pains.

3. Foria's weed lube

Foria Pleasure, a spray made of cannabis oil and coconut oil, not only keeps everything nice and slick down there but also enhances sensation all over. "I started to feel this warm, intense feeling throughout my body," one reviewer wrote. "You will orgasm deeper than you ever have."

From lubricants made from coconut oil to sex toys fashioned from CRYSTALS: The rise of 'clean sex' and the products making waves right now

  • The wellness industry is one of the biggest, and called a 'trillion dollar industry'
  • It has now made its move into the sex industry - with clean sex products
  • From vegan condoms to crystal sex toys, FEMAIL introduces some of the latest
  • Daily Mail Australia also spoke to some of the founders behind the products

They call it the 'trillion dollar industry', so perhaps it was only a matter of time before wellness - and the obsession that comes with all things 'clean' - moved into the sex market, too.

But from lubricants made from coconut oil to vegan condoms, crystal sex toys and even an aphrodisiac made from cannabis oil, clean sex has never been bigger.

FEMAIL takes a look at the new, all-natural products to hit the sustainable sex shelves. Would you use them?

COCONUT OIL LUBRICANT

Late last year, Bernadette Finney, 46, from Sydney, launched Australia's first completely natural personal lubricant, Private, with the help of her daughters, 24 and 22.

Private is made from pure coconut oil and came about because Ms Finney and her family started using coconut oil cooking spray, before turning their new healthy approach to other areas of their life.

VEGAN CONDOMS

As the third-fastest-growing vegan market in the world, it's safe to say that Australia has a lot of time for veganism.

But former Cleo Bachelor of the Year finalist, Dustin Leonard, spotted a rather unusual gap in the market, when he launched a new line in his range of HERO condoms, which are both 'natural' and made with a 'plant-based' lubricant.

CRYSTAL SEX TOYS

Crystals - whether they're rose quartz, jades, onyxes or moonstones - are having a moment right now, and this moment is not immune to the sex industry.

Crystals are becoming bigger and bigger, there are now crystal sex toys (pictured)

Rosie Rees, from Perth in Western Australia, sells both crystal dildos and yoni eggs (a small egg-shaped crystal designed to help strengthen the pelvic and vaginal muscle).

AND THE REST...

Last but not least is Foria's Pleasure Spray bottles - 'a natural sensual enhancement oil' designed specifically for women and made from cannabis oil.

'FORIA Pleasure is hand-crafted from the female flower of the marijuana plant - one of the oldest known aphrodisiacs in the world - using modern extraction techniques for optimal potency and purity,' the website reads.

Marijuana Is a Natural Aphrodisiac—If You Don't Get Too Dang High

MADISON MARGOLIN

Men: Maybe don't eat that 120 mg weed edible if you don't want a crippling stoner boner.

Cannabis is commonly considered a natural aphrodisiac, but is it possible that too much weed could get in the way of getting it on?

A recent query to Leafly, an online encyclopedia of cannabis strains, came from a woman lamenting that her boyfriend couldn't get an erection after consuming a 120-milligram edible one night, and a couple joints the next.

"When we went to have sex everything was heated but he couldn't get an erection. He said he was into it, which I'm inclined to believe, but said he couldn't really feel his nether regions, which is what we attributed the difficulty to," the query read.

In response, Leafly's Ashley Manta, a sexuality educator, hypothesized that the problem came from the edibles. While most budtenders recommend 20 to 35 milligrams for even those with a high tolerance, 120 milligrams could definitely impair functioning for well over 12 hours.

Still, cannabis has different effects on men and women.

"As many older [heterosexual] couples find, half an hour before intimate time, she should keep smoking and he should stop," author and endocannabinoid researcher Lex Pelger told Motherboard.

As with alcohol, the dosage is crucial in regard to how cannabis affects sexual performance, in this case, specifically in regard to men. If the boyfriend mentioned in the Leafly query had had a smaller edible, he might have been able to get an erection.

And yet, pot has still been helpful for many couples aiming to enhance their sex life. Foria, a weed lube for women, is applied directly to the vagina and aids with sensitivity during sex. Meanwhile, cannabis itself is associated with higher sensitivity and responsiveness to touch and other stimuli.

In one survey, 76 percent of men said cannabis increased their sexual pleasure; 68 percent reported it enhanced their orgasms; and for 39 percent it helped them last longer. Often, women are more likely to feel sexual satisfaction from cannabis, with 90 percent reporting in one study that it enhanced sex in various ways.

Why Foria, The First Marijuana Based Lube, Is A Game Changer For Women 

By:   |  Mar 29, 2017

Foria is the first natural pleasure enhancement oil from California, made with a blend of coconut and cannabis oil and developed specifically for women and their partners, taking full advantage of the plant’s natural aphrodisiac properties that increase blood flow and promote relaxation.

Foria isn’t the first company to discover the fact that marijuana is one of nature’s greatest aphrodisiacs, but it is among the first to develop a product that blends pleasure and cannabis seamlessly, producing the fanciest and coolest lube in the world (weed lube).  You can purchase it at recreational dispensaries from across California and Colorado.

Foria’s effects are designed for women’s bodies, so men aren’t affected by it (not directly at least). We did some research on the topic and have come up with a basic list that explains the effects that Foria has on women’s bodies during the different stages of sex: 

Kicking Things Off

Women have to apply Foria long before they get intimate, giving the product enough time to settle in and do it’s thing. Unlike regular lube, which you can use at any moment, Foria demands a little more preparation and forethought. You can compare it to a good edible, where you consume it and give it ample time for it to affect your body in the way that you want it to. According to Foria, you’re supposed to apply the lube 3 or 4 times on your privates and give it 30 to 40 minutes for it to work its magic. So be ready to wait a little, have a drink in hand or engage in some foreplay.

REFINERY29: Make Anal Sex Easy & Fun

The Crazy Trick That Made Anal Sex Super Easy & Fun

The Alternative Daily

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.”

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.
