5 other ways to use medical cannabis and the hottest products for seniors

Medical cannabis has advanced far beyond the days of simple raw cannabis buds. With medical legalization and adult-use laws, those raw flowers can be refined into a wide range of different types of products for more targeted therapies.

Specifically, seniors and Baby Boomers are being targeted with a new wave of no-euphoria and low-euphoria medical marijuana products and modalities for age-related medical conditions.

We highlight some of the most popular, widely available, high-quality, award-winning ones and the medical conditions patients are using them for.

Science note: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main therapeutically active ingredient in cannabis and causes euphoria. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most common active molecule in cannabis but it does not cause euphoria. Cannabinol (CBN) is a degraded form of THC, and causes sedation. Lastly, tetrahydrocannabinol-acid (THCa) is the initial 'acid' form of THC, and does not cause euphoria.

TOPICAL

PRO
Won’t cause euphoria; very tame modality for new patients; targets joint and muscle pain and also can treat skin disorders. 

CON
Works locally, not throughout the body; can have an aroma; can stain clothing.

Foria Pleasure
Foria, based in Los Angeles, offers a game changer for women suffering from genital dryness and pain. The infused coconut oil prelube comes in a spray bottle and promotes relaxation, increased blood flow and lubrication. It also reduces pain and tension, without a head high.

The Economist-A Growing Number of Countries are deciding to Ditch Prohibition. What comes Next?

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.

Can Marijuana Jumpstart your Love Life? via SF Evergreen Cannabis Media
Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez on Foria & Sexxpot, a new strain of marijuana...

“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.

Foria Cannabis

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.

There are several cannabis-based products promising enhanced sex available now on the market. But whereas infused oils like Foria are meant to be used as a topical, spurring libido by direct application onto the clitoris and labia, Sexxpot is specifically meant for smoking.

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.

She and her partner were able to experience synchronous orgasms, and sensational ones achieved in force, she said, providing detail that caused this reporter to blush a little.

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?”
