One of the most interesting articles I read recently, was about Foria. Foria is a cannabis lubricant. Quite a few “I’m gonna get my vagina high” articles were out there. While it is something I would be interested to try, I don’t live in California. Currently, Cali is the only place to purchase Foria, and only with a doctors referral for a cannabis co-op. So, here are the basics from what I have read. Foria was created by Matthew Gerson, a Wellness Director for The Aphrodite Group. Gerson explains that he created Foria because he was interested in the “sex side of health” and he noticed that female cannabis plants were, for lack of a better word, horny. They desired the pollination and without it, they make more pollen, the plant gets stressed and creates more plant to relieve the stress. I really love the way he talks about the sex side of health.

In any case, I did find a recipe for homemade cannabis lube: 2 cups of coconut oil and 2 grams of cannabis. Preheat oven to 280 degrees. Add the 2 cups of coconut oil to a pan that is oven-proof (cast iron, stainless steel, etc) and heat until the oil is completely liquified. This is easy to tell as coconut oil is bright white when solid and clear when hot. Add 2 grams of finely ground cannabis to the hot coconut oil. Put saucepan in oven for 60-90 minutes, stirring occasionally while its cooking. Allow contents to cool, strain with cheesecloth, and put away for later use (when its cooled of course!!). Label with the date and keep in a cool, dark place to conserve cannibinoids. Use a couple of tablespoons about an hour before sex.

The consensus seems to be that the lube made the users feel relaxed and had a lovely feeling to it. The articles I read (written by women) said they felt wetter and had more intense orgasms. The Foria can also be sprayed sublingually (under the tongue) and had a nice effect there as well. The long and short of it would be, this is definitely something to test!! Happy humping!!
