IN AN anonymous-looking building a few minutes’ drive from Denver International Airport, a bald chemotherapy patient and a pair of giggling tourists eye the stock on display. Reeking packets of mossy green buds—Girl Scout Cookies, KoolAid Kush, Power Cheese—sit alongside cabinets of chocolates and chilled drinks. In a warehouse behind the shop pointy-leaved plants bask in the artificial light of two-storey growing rooms. Sally Vander Veer, the president of Medicine Man, which runs this dispensary, reckons the inventory is worth about $4m.
America, and the world, are going to see a lot more such establishments. Since California’s voters legalised the sale of marijuana for medical use in 1996, 22 more states, plus the District of Columbia, have followed suit; in a year’s time the number is likely to be nearer 30. Sales to cannabis “patients” whose conditions range from the serious to the notional are also legal elsewhere in the Americas (Colombia is among the latest to license the drug) and in much of Europe. On February 10th Australia announced similar plans.
I think we can all agree that stoned sex is the best sex. Marijuana has been used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years. Ancient Indian medicine systems used cannabis to increase libido, produce long-lasting boners, and delay ejaculation.
But isn’t ingesting weed through your lungs, down through your stomach, and into your meat popsicle a DRAG?? Why not apply it straight to your girl’s hoo ha? WELP, now you can.
Foria cannabis lube is a sex lube made “all natural liquid coconut oil (MCT) and purified pharmaceutical-grade cannabis oil,” according to its website. You spray a few squirts of the lube on your lover’s clitoris and labia and she’ll immediately forget what a shitty lover you were previously.

JULY 13, 2015 / DENVER, CO - Beginning in July, Dixie Elixirs and Edibles (Dixie), the most trusted source for innovative, safe, and effective cannabis products, will commence manufacturing and distributing Foria, the leading name in cannabis infused sexual enhancement products, in Colorado with future states to follow shortly thereafter. The added infrastructure that Dixie can offer will allow greater scalability for Foria, providing reach to many more women who may benefit from this breakthrough product; while Dixie adds an entirely new category to its already robust set of cannabis delivery systems.
Over the past 16 months, thousands of patients and consumers have learned first-hand the benefits of Foria, a cannabis-infused sexual enhancement product designed for women. Foria patients and consumers report enhanced sensual pleasure and diminished pain across a broad spectrum of sexual and physical challenges. At the same time, Dixie Elixirs & Edibles, a Dixie Brands Inc. company and creator of the world famous Dixie Elixirs, has mainstream media calling them ‘the future of cannabis’ for their innovative work with infused products, their attention to consumer safety and support for regulatory standards.
Mathew Gerson, Director of Wellness and the developer of Foria comments, “This was a relationship that couldn’t have come at a better time for our two companies as Foria was searching for scalability while Dixie continues to drive the standards of quality and innovation in cannabis. Over the past year we have been overwhelmed by testimonials from users that speak to the positive effects that Foria has had on their intimate lives. Our partnership with Dixie provides a best-in-class infrastructure and caring hands allowing us to meet the unique needs of our rapidly growing community of users. We couldn’t be happier with this exciting new partnership.”
Foria and Dixie both share a passion for leveraging health and wellness and de-stigmatizing cannabis world-wide. However, Foria made the decision to enter into partnership with Dixie Brands Inc. for their industry-leading practices, including large scale, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, triple-testing quality standards, as well as their distribution network and manufacturing competencies. Foria has attracted the attention of world renowned clinical researchers as well as MD’s specializing in human sexual health, and they believe this new partnership will engage these researchers in further testing and new product development.
“We know we are the right company to help Foria reach its full potential, and that we can bring this product to women, and their partners, around the country,” added Tripp Keber, Dixie Brands, Inc. CEO. “At Dixie, we don’t feel the need to invent everything from scratch as we are most interested in bringing best-in-class products to a wider audience, whether those products are something we develop in house or through great partners like Foria. The goal is to bring cannabinoid based-solutions to the market that are innovative, safe and effective —and Foria hits those marks in every category. We are proud to add Foria to the portfolio of Dixie Brands products.”
To spur women into earthshaking multiple orgasms, all you need is the right weed.
That’s the promise of Sexxpot, a strain of cannabis that specifically stimulates the female libido.
A low sex drive can be a sign of health problems. But sexual pleasure is also a big part of overall wellness, said Karyn Wagner from Paradigm Cannabis Group, the Humboldt County-based collective behind the sex power flower.
While searching for just the right strain to use as a sex aid, Wagner chanced upon Mr. Nice, an indica dominant strain with roots in the legendary G13.
Wagner had gone through several trial-and-error experiments with her partner, but the result of this test drive was explosive. Afterwards, “We said, ‘That was very good for me,’” Wagner said.
She asked her partner to think of a name for the cannabis-aided sexual experience. And “he called it Sexxpot,” she said.
Sexxpot is not bred specifically to hop up a woman’s libido. Instead, it’s the strain best-suited to enhance a woman’s mood, Wagner said.
“You relax and your senses are at full alert. You can have that sensuousness,” said Wagner, who described the strain’s overall feel as “oh my gosh, that’s good.”
Cannabis’s utility as a love aid is no secret, and other indica strains may also help partners connect and relax before coitus. However, one factor in Sexxpot’s favor is its moderate THC level, 14 percent, and its “negligibly low” level of CBD, Wagner said. This combination, she said, allows women to relax into a sensual, sensation-receptive state of mind.
But does it work for everybody?
“I’ve always been high strung during sex,” one woman told me on a recent evening during an industry event at Oaksterdam University. Sure enough, after a few puffs of Sexxpot, her desire and her tactile sensitivity grew.
That wasn’t all.
Despite women preaching Sexxpot’s value in the bedroom, dispensaries have thus far given the strain the cold shoulder. “The male dominated buying community doesn’t understand the need for the product. They say, ‘It won’t sell,’” Wagner said. “But you need to cater to a female market and let them know they have it.”
Luckily for local ladies, there are a few dispensaries that welcome women-specific products with open arms. One of these is Phytologie Wellness, in Oakland, where women make up 40 percent of the clientele, according to Aundre Speciale, the dispensary’s wellness director and operator.
“There’s an enormous need” for women-friendly cannabis products, said Speciale, who noted that her customer base often remarks how hard it is to find a marijuana product made with women in mind.
So far, Sexxpot is available only at Phytologie and Cannabis Buyers Club in Berkeley. But Wagner has high dreams for her orgasm-inducing cannabis strain. Themed vape pens are on the way, as well as edibles.
Sexxpot is also sex positive from a woman’s perspective: The strain is grown, marketed, and vended solely by women. And Wagner is confident business success will follow good things in the bedroom. As she put it, “This thing is too much fun, right?”

Doctor who wrote hit book on drugs and sex says smoking marijuana can dry out your mouth and your vagina...
It's a phenomenon that's been dubbed the "cotton vagina" in urban dictionaries and been brought to light on internet forums.
But up until now there has been very little expert opinion on the urban myth that smoking weed, just like allergies to medicines, can dry out the vagina.
Writing for Vice, Sophie Saint Thomas spoke to Dr Julie Holland, author of must-read Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sleep You're Missing, the Sex You're Not Having and What's Really Making You Crazy, about the reported side effect.
When asked whether vaginal dryness was linked to marijuana use, just like dry mouth, Dr Holland said: "Exactly like dry mouth. It's the same thing. It's the drying of the mucus membranes.
"Now not all pot is going to give you dry mouth, but if you have had a strain that is giving you dry mouth, it will also make you more dry [down there]."
Cannabis Problem: What effect does it have down below?
But other factors can have more impact on levels of lubrication, the medical expert said.
"In general the thing that makes women dry is the pill. Because there's all this different mucus that happens throughout your cervical cycle.
"As Mother Nature designs it, when you're fertile, you're wet. But if you're on the pill, you don't ovulate; you don't get that mid-cycle wetness."
Dr Holland said using coconut oil, or even cannabis lube Foria, could help alleviate any vaginal discomfort from smoking the drug.
"Foria? I've heard of it," she said. "I haven't tried it and don't have any data, but here's what I will say that's very important: I believe it's in a base of coconut oil and I think that coconut oil is excellent for lubrication.
"I've had patients tell me, I've had friends tell me, it is better than any other lube they've tried."
So don't despair yet, although the myth of cotton vagina appears to be a reality, a remedy is at hand.
Marijuana is now being used in what newspapers are calling the “pot sex spray”, a product which promises to use the relaxing properties of cannabis to help women to relax and enjoy better, more enjoyable sex.
The spray, called Foria was only available through a doctor’s prescription in California, but is on general sale to members of the public in Colorado. The [topical] spray is made from an edible, coconut oil-based spray and is meant to be sprayed onto genitals 30 minutes before intercourse.
It’s just another example of a burgeoning medical marijuana industry that is flourishing in states where marijuana is freely available. It’s not just the herb that’s in demand: it’s also scented candles, candies, lotions and a whole array of cannabis-themed products that use marijuana.
The sex spray itself is receiving positive results, with one user, Rosen, saying “We tried it together—and she loved it!”. Foria is also gaining fans in Denver, who are offering tongue-in-cheek “mile high” massages with pot-infused oil to clients, which have met with rave reviews for their very relaxing nature.
Users might love Foria, but not as much as those selling it. Retailing at a cool $44-$50 per 10ml, Foria offers a larger 30ml bottle ranging anywhere from $88-$100. The sex spray is sold in California to patients with medical marijuana cards and in Colorado to both the medical and recreational markets.

April 22, 2015 - Foria Review
We’re going to talk about Foria, the newest cannabis product to hit Colorado shelves. While we’re familiar with edibles and different strains of flower, this is a new future for marijuana. Sex lube.
The fact that there’s something to help women experience new sexual pleasures is amazing no matter if it’s cannabis-laden or not.
Bill and I have a really great time together regularly. We’re not the “in the missionary position with the lights off for the sole purpose of procreation” type. So, I’ll leave it at that. I’m not trying to fix anything with Foria or needing any miracle libido cures. We’re good.
We smoke out each and every time we get it on. We’re daily smokers, always at night, high before sex and then an after sex smoke. There are strains that have absolutely killed our libidos, what we affectionately call “sleepy weed,” and there are strains that reinforce it. But there has rarely been a strain that actually enhances our drives. Bill seems to vaguely remember it happening once, but can’t remember the strain since it was years ago. So, we’ll just say that it’s a part of our regular sexual experience either way.
We used it on our crazy Friday nights and we tested it out on a regular old Tuesday nights. Because of this testing, we now have a new inside sex joke, “hey, do you want a Tuesday on a Monday? wink, wink.”
Friday nights are not typical nights, other than we do this every Friday. They are fueled by tequila cocktails, blunts, and “fun pills” (you’re going to have to read a different blog about those, and it’s already in the works to launch in a couple of weeks). We just added Foria to the mix to see what would happen.
Soooo, they make it sound like my pussy is about to get stoned. Awesome. Bill suggested I go with 8 sprays.
“I pretty much did 12 trying to make sure I got it inside” I replied in a text to him as he was downstairs. “It’s been 10 minutes since the sprays. Fuck yeah, science!”
Clearly, we were excited for testing.
A lot of awesome things went on. Things were more enhanced. More sensitivity, more blood flow, more wet, more of everything (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). My notes at the end, “Overall – fucking five stars.”
Now, I know we couldn’t judge this on a Friday night experience alone, and I suspected that “warming up” with the oil for at least 30 minutes probably helps a lot of women relax and get into it. So we tested it out on a Wednesday night – no tequila cocktails, no blunts (but we did smoke a bit before).
“Awesome orgasm. Not comparable to Friday night, although still amazing,” were the notes.
So, there’s an average weekday experience. I didn’t think the oil made a difference one way or the other this time. I was beginning to think that Foria was giving women a placebo effect.
We tested it out again on another weekday night, and Mondays are the nights that we’re both typically spent, tired from working all day, and not rolling around in the sheets. I couldn’t think of a more perfect day to test efficacy of enhancement oil.
It was incredible. I think the biggest difference is how it makes it easier to do more of the things you maybe already do, or hope to do. Enhancement is the perfect word for all of this. This is next level oil. I think the key is an excited, encouraging mental state, though.
And there you have it. It works. $50 well spent.
The storied (if technically illegal) practice of smoking up and getting down has moved into the mainstream. Now legal in Alaska, Colorado, D.C., Oregon, and Washington, marijuana has fascinating effects on women, men and sex.
WOMEN: We may be more sensitive to the pain-relieving effects of cannabis - but we develop a tolerance more quickly. (Drug and Alcohol Dependence)
COUPLES: The couple who tokes together is less likely to get into physical altercations. (Psychology of Addictive Behaviors)
LUBE: THC-infused lube Foria aims to increase sensitivity and relaxation (and maybe help with multiple orgasms?) without actually getting users high. But it can't be used with latex condoms, as the oil can cause latex to break down.
