While the pharmaceutical industry has been unable to come up with an effective medication to boost arousal in women, cannabis has historically been used as an aphrodisiac in Indian culture, among others. Foria cannabis-infused personal lubricant for women has been bringing pleasure to users since 2014.
At this time, Foria is only available to residents of California over the age of 18 with a medical marijuana recommendation from a doctor, however, they are soon to expand their reach into Colorado through their recent partnership with Dixie Elixirs Inc. Mathew Gerson, Director of Wellness and the developer of Foria comments on their website “This was a relationship that couldn’t have come at a better time for our two companies as Foria was searching for scale-ability while Dixie continues to drive the standards of quality and innovation in cannabis.”
Foria is designed as a topical lubricant to be applied to the outside and inside of the vaginal area, however, it is also safe for consumption. According to their website, “Foria is created using a revolutionary solvent-less process that provides a highly refined cannabis extract affording maximum bio-availability. Testing of the extract for cannabinoid content is performed at multiple stages to ensure excellent quality control and accurate dosing of the final formulation.
Final filling and packaging are performed under careful review for purity and cleanliness with every batch being tested for contaminants before release.” The only two ingredients in the lubricant are THC concentrate and coconut oil, giving it “a naturally low pH that is great for skin care and ideal for maintaining a healthy vaginal pH.”
Foria is available in a convenient spray bottle that consistently delivers approximately 2 milligrams of THC per dosage, or sprays. It is suggested to apply approximately 15-45 minutes before intimacy, to let the effects kick in. While the low level of THC is unlikely to cause a high feeling, users who are not regular consumers of cannabis may be more sensitive to the THC.
Women who have used the lubricant report warming and tingling sensations increased sensitivity in areas where it is applied, as well as enhanced and prolonged orgasms. Testimonials on their website are from users of all different ages, and levels of cannabis consumption. As with any other food or medication, cannabis effects users in different ways according to body chemistry and frequency of cannabis use, so it is recommended to start with a low dosage and work your way up if needed.
One woman’s experience may not be the same as that of another’s, but throughout extensive testing, Foria has shown to consistently bring pleasure, reduced pain, and relaxation to users. As women age, our body chemistry changes, and Foria can meet a variety of needs for women of all ages who are looking to enhance their sexual experience. Even if all you experience is a feeling of deep relaxation, stress is one of the highest reported deterrents to arousal in women. Because it is made with coconut oil known as MCT oil, Foria is not compatible for use with condoms, or other latex devices.
