Derived from the term “euphoria,” “Foria” a lubricating vaginal spray with cannabinoids promises to give women extended sexual pleasure, with back-to-back orgasms spanning 15 minutes. Now that’s certainly worth an inquiry…
Created by Mathew Gerson, and available through the Aphrodite Group (AG), a California medical marijuana collective of patients and caregivers who have joined to provide safe and secure access to high quality California-grown medical marijuana for those who need the medicinal plant to help treat or cope with the symptoms and physical discomfort of certain medical conditions. The collective also believes in empowering women to “access their full pleasure and well-being through natural therapeutics.”
Per the website foriapleasure.com, Foria was created by AG based on ancient holistic medical wisdom, which supported the use of cannabis, in this case to “awaken arousal” and heighten sensation, making orgasms more intense, fuller and easier to access. It is believed to help promote natural lubrication, reduce pain and tension and create the relaxation necessary for sensual experience, as well as restorative rest.
With a tagline like “Made with love in California,” AG says that Foria “works with you, wherever you might find yourself on the pleasure spectrum.” So, as with most things, it depends on the individual how you will respond to the lubricant spray.
Containing THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the lubricant uses 100% natural edible coconut oil as its base, which has a naturally low pH level, which is great for skincare but apparently also ideal for maintaining a healthy vaginal pH which could possibly help to prevent bacteria and yeast infections. For most women, its antifungal properties would definitely be an added benefit.
So what’s the cost, you ask. A small one-ounce bottle runs around $88 and worth it if you believe in what Gerson says as he described the sensations, including “women report a sense of embodiment, a sense of dropping into a more full relationship to sexual sensations, and sensations around the body. As you can imagine, as that builds up to orgasm, if orgasm is a part of your experience, then that can lead to intensification and a more full body experience.”
Unfortunately, the marijuana containing lubricant can currently only be used by California residents who have medical approval to use it. Another great reason to push for legalizing medical marijuana in the state of Georgia!
