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

by Mary Jane Gibson | Jan 18, 2016

Follow on Twitter @maryjanegibson

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.

Women's Health: Real Women Reveal What Gives them their Biggest Orgasms

by Zahra Barnes

Care to add to the conversation?

"Sex and the ability to orgasm have always been a very important part of my wellness protocol, especially after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Cancer robbed me of some of my, shall we say, womanly juiciness.

I started using this therapeutic cannabis oil called Foria as a supplement to enhance pleasure. It actually created deeper, more satisfying, multiple orgasms for me. Many times, masturbation with Foria is just what a single lady needs to get her day going! I'm so grateful because having a fabulous orgasm serves me physically, mentally, and emotionally." -- Leslie G.

Foria: Release the Pleasure Within

How can we get out of our heads and more into our bodies? How can we let our guards down and open ourselves to each other emotionally and sensually?

This is a major problem for couples nowadays. We all have issues letting ourselves go and enjoy the moments.

That is where intimacy lies, and it’s what we all want for our relationships. Many couples have found that bringing cannabis into the bedroom facilitates the very connection they want and need. Well, I had a very good friend show me FORIA when I was visiting them in California. Of course, it peaked my interest!

Marijuana-infused lubricants are an emerging market and for good reason. Although applying a cannabis on the skin does not result in any sort of psychoactive effect, but it can still have a profound physical impact. FORIA is a THC-based, all-natural lubricant that claims to help women  have a stronger orgasm as well as greater access to the big O.

FORIA is easy to use because you just spray it in and around your lady parts about 30 minutes before action. I will testify that it does leave you more lubricated, relaxed, and just all in the moment. It will make your experience a more enjoyable experience and one that will cause you to always use FORIA!

It is only available in CA and CO but worth trying especially coming from the mouth of this housewife!

How to Make Sex Better With Cannabis

For a lot of couples, sex can get boring really fast. What is supposed to be a naked channel of mind-blowing interconnection turns into something else. Sex often becomes nothing more than a mutual answer to biological needs.

Or even worse, sex becomes one of those things that we hardly ever talk about – let alone do. We see it in movies, see it on our computer screens, and we visualize it in our heads. But how can you find or rekindle that spark if you and your partner live in different worlds?

New couples can have this problem as well. How can we get out of our heads and more into our bodies? How can we let our guards down and open ourselves to each other emotionally and sensually?

That is where intimacy lies, and it’s what we all want for our relationships. Many couples have found that bringing cannabis into the bedroom facilitates the very connection they want and need.

Combining Our Favorite Plant

With Our Favorite Activity

Learning how to make sex better by using cannabis can be a great way to navigate the sometimes tricky labyrinth of sexuality.

 

Marijuana can bring you and your partner closer than you’ve ever imagined.

“It’s difficult to open up and to bare your soul, the parts of you that are confused or that like another person,” says Dr. Nick Karras, sexologist and couples coach. “Sexuality is vulnerability.”

Dr. Karras has been studying sex and cannabis for some time, and he believes the two go very well together.

He’s found that while a lot of people use alcohol to loosen up their inhibitions before a sexual experience, cannabis can bring you to a much more potent place.

“Cannabis allows you to connect with other people, but from a place of acute awareness. It doesn’t allow you to lie to yourself in a sense,” he says. “Instead it allows you to be much more sensual.”

Lose the Inhibitions and Be Yourself

 After a few puffs it will be much easier to set aside everything else and focus on each other.

Carol from Vancouver has been using cannabis in the bedroom for more than 30 years. It has definitely kept her marriage fun and vibrant.

“Cannabis has never failed me. It helps me focus and all my inhibitions just drop away,” she says. “I use it to shift my energy from work or parenting into a more sensuous mood.”

Carol talks about how marijuana imbues her with a sense of happiness, optimism and joy, feelings that she believes are an important part of not just sex but of living life.

“Most women are pretty self-conscious of body image or aging or whatever, and for me, marijuana totally strips that away,” she says. “It allows me to be myself and to be happy with who I am in the moment.”

The biggest thing, Carol says, is that everybody gives it a try and to be patient while you learn how cannabinoids interact with your body.

Choose Your Method of Ingestion

Experienced cannabis users tend to have a preferred method. They know what works best for them. But just as with choosing a strain, remember that this is about a shared intimate experience – you want the ingestion to be part of the foreplay.

 

A little bit of cannabis goes a long way in the bedroom. 

Certain methods of ingestion may be preferable over others, depending on your tastes. If you find you don’t like something in particular, know that you can later experiment with an alternative method and have completely different results.

 

Even if you’re used to smoking, your partner may not find this method of ingestion so agreeable.
1) Smoking: Still the most popular method, a lot of people like smoking because it’s easy and the effect is almost immediate, which can help you get your dosage just right. Whether you use a joint or a pipe, the marijuana effects will be pretty much the same. The downside with smoking is that the coughing and burning throat could be a pretty big turn off, and the smoke tends to lead to unwanted dryness.
2) Vaporizing: This is nice because you still get a pretty fast reaction and the vapor is much smoother than smoke. You can actually taste the floral bouquet of the herb, which is sexy all by itself compared to smoke.
What type of vaporizer you use can also make a difference. Whether it’s portable or a table-top model, you want something that is easy to handle and works well.
3) Edibles: These can be great for people who are looking for a good body high in the bedroom. But this particular delivery method can sometimes be a bit impractical, especially for marijuana newcomers.
One potential issue is the delayed onset of any reaction. Depending on your metabolism, it can take an hour or more before you start to feel something. And if the dosage isn’t quite right, you either won’t feel enough or it will be too much. Once you get the dosage right for edibles, however, this can make for a fantastic evening.
4) Tinctures: With a tincture of cannabis you get your herb in a form of alcohol solution. It is dispensed with an eyedropper usually directly under the tongue. Like edibles, this is an excellent way to achieve a good body high if that’s what you’re looking for. A little bit can go a long way here, so be careful to start slow so as to properly gauge your dose. For some people, tinctures can take effect within minutes; for others it’s about the same as with edibles. So, again, you’ve really got to experiment if you want to properly manage your expectations.
5) Topical cannabis: Marijuana-infused lubricants are an emerging market and for good reason. Although applying cannabis topically does not result in any sort of psychoactive effect, it can still have a profound physical impact.

 

Do not underestimate the therapeutic qualities of a good cannabis topical. In the bedroom, FORIA for women can really amp things up.

Our sponsor for this video, FORIA, is a perfect example. Women who use this THC-based, all-natural lubricant claim to have stronger orgasms as well as greater access to the big O. Worth a try, right?

Know Your Intentions When Using Pot

Clear intent is an important part of marijuana use on any occasion. Knowing exactly what you want from this plant and the many marijuana effects is the best way to get the most out of its psychoactive properties.

The intention could be work-related; it could be to relax, or to share an intimate moment with another person.

A lot of people smoke pot without ever realizing the power of intent, and how it’s a key principle of being a responsible cannabis user.

And of course for newcomers, it’s impossible to exercise any kind of intent. How can you know when you’re first getting acquainted with how marijuana effects you? And for most people it does take a few times before they feel that first THC kick.

But once you’ve tried out a few different strains, you’ll be familiar enough with the herb to exercise exactly the intent you want for the bedroom.
