It can be eaten, smoked, vaporized, swallowed as a pill... but what is the sexiest way to use cannabis? A strong candidate has to be the new cannabis sex spray Foria, designed specifically to increase female pleasure. Designers of the new "sexually healing" spray claim it relaxes women and helps produce multiple orgasms—that is, for $88 per 1oz bottle (roughly 30 "servings").  

In a video on the product's website, one Foria user says it helped her achieve multiple orgasms, twice, "which never happens." A  44-year-old Foria user named Stacy is quoted as saying: "After using Foria, not only did I have multiple orgasms in a short amount of time, I experienced a deep relaxation in my mind, body and soul. "

While no one at AlterNet has used Foria (yet), human experience tells us that in addition to heightening the senses of taste and smell, cannabis can heighten sexual stimulation. As an article in the East Bay Express notes, "weed’s main active ingredient, THC, mimics the neurotransmitter anandamide, which causes euphoria and can facilitate arousal."

Banking on that idea, the San Francisco-based medical marijuana collective Aphrodite Group designed this first-ever cannabis sex lube, then tested it on 100 volunteers.

Unlike a traditional lube, Foria is sprayed on the sensitive skin of the vulva, and clitoris prior to any sexual stimulation. On the product website, it’s described as a “pre-lube” to be applied “at least 30 minutes before engaging in sexual activity.” Waiting, apparently, allows the skin to absorb the compounds in the spray, which consists of 100 percent liquid coconut oil and THC oil (THC is responsible for the plant's psychoactive effects as well as several purported health benefits). Bottles each contain 360 mg of THC and other cannabinoids. 

According to the website, “While some women report experiencing enhanced sensations immediately, others say waiting up to an hour provides them the best results. “

Ricardo Baca of  The Cannabist reported on Carol Carlson,  a "60-something" woman from Marin County who has used Foria. According to Baca's article, Carlson had asked her doctor what she could do to help her libido, to no avail. That night during dinner a friend handed her a sample of the spray. She and her husband tested it out when they got home.

"With no expectations I felt the power of it," Carlson told The Cannabist. "I felt relaxed and aroused. I felt every feeling a little more sensitively. When you get older, (sex) becomes uncomfortable. Your body doesn’t function like it used to. It’s also a great lubricant, and it’s not messy like K-Y Jelly. It absorbs into the body, and that’s an added plus.

“I’m enjoying sex again, and my husband’s thrilled about that."

Since it’s made entirely from cannabis and coconuts, Foria is safe to eat. In addition to marketing it to women for self-pleasuring purposes, Aphrodite claims both sexes can enjoy it as an edible aphrodisiac, by spraying it on the tongue like a breath spray or consuming it in more creative ways.

It's probably good to note that eating more than a spray or two of the product would likely get a user much more intoxicated than simply applying it to the skin.

“Foria is for everyone, however, it was created for women with the uniquely sensitive/absorptive skin of the vulva and vagina in mind so all serving sizes and suggested uses refer to topical use for women,” the Foria website states.

Foria only contains about 2mg of THC per spray, and every batch of Foria is lab-tested by the Werc Shop in Los Angeles County.
