Quick (& Dirty) Tips for Using Foria

Foria is a line of products designed for sexual wellness and enhanced, well…, everything in the bedroom.

When these products first appeared on the market nearly a decade ago, I was skeptic number one. But, let me tell you, they have won me over and are part of my personal toolkit.

Here are some quick and fun ways to use these products, from personal experience and feedback from our very satisfied clients.


Foria Pleasure
– This is a topical personal stimulant that enhances sensation, vulva engorgement and intensifies orgasm. It is applied topically (a small amount will do) directly to the clitoris and labia area.

My number one suggestion to clients is to apply it 20-30 minutes before you engage. If you’re going out, take a little with you, pop into the ladies room and apply before you leave for home; then you’ll be good and ready when you arrive. If you’re already home, apply it and, partner(s), this part is for you: give some good long, kisses and lots of touching everywhere except the clitoral area, before jumping right in. I always think of John Cleese saying, “How about a kiss, boy?!” from that hilarious movie The Meaning of Life.

Between the activation of the Foria in the clitoral area and the anticipation, the results reported are explosive.

While this product is THC infused (and only available in licensed dispensaries), it generally will not intoxicate. Many women, do, however report feeling more relaxed, I think it’s that mental connection between the pussy and the brain.

 

Foria Awaken – A personal stimulant with an added benefit of other botanicals to enhance libido and sensation. Unlike Foria Pleasure, this product will also provide a warming sensation to your pussy region.

This is a CBD infused product that can be purchased outside of the dispensary system, making it more widely available. Follow the same advice as Foria Pleasure and be SURE to read the ingredients list to confirm there are no ingredients you are allergic or sensitive to. Makes a great alternative or special gift for those you love, who aren’t able to access Foria Pleasure.

 

Foria Explore – Tip #1: store these in the refrigerator or freezer so they remain solid. These are a great option for use as an all natural anal lube and much less messy than traditional lubes. Depending on your experience level and planned activity, you can use the full suppository or stretch your budget and cut it in half. After inserting, be sure to stay in a prone position for 15-20 minutes before engaging.

Because this product has more lubricant value than the Foria Relief suppository, it is also a great option for women experiencing vaginal dryness or painful intercourse. Again, often, half a suppository may do the job.

This product is THC and CBD infused with a 3:2 ratio and only available in licensed dispensaries.


Foria Intimacy Suppositories
– This is a CBD infused product that can be purchased outside of the dispensary system, making it more widely available.

Can be used effectively in the same ways as Foria Explore.

 

 


Foria Sex Oil
– I love that Foria has begun to produce this product. It comes in a 4 oz bottle so you’ve got plenty to work with.

Slather this wherever you need a little more glide. Great for exploring new frontiers and a wonderful all natural lube.

For added pleasure to your sex time, mix a little with your favorite essential oil to make your own massage oil.

Did you get too excited and over-do it or feeling a little raw? Apply a little post-sex to soothe the clitoris, labia, vaginal or anal areas. Keep this bottle close at hand to use as needed before, during and after sex.

 

If you’re just beginning to experiment with adding cannabis to your sex time (or as my son would call it, Happy Fun Time), take a few minutes to read through our Better Sex with Cannabis article.

And as always, feel free to reach out and speak with one of our knowledgeable Agents or Certified Cannabis Advisors.

Be safe and happy exploring!

 

 

 

Motherhood, Pleasure & Wellbeing

As a Mom who is now entering chapter 4 of my life (soon to be a grandmother), this article about the importance of taking time for sex speaks louder than words. I have been fortunate to have cannabis and Foria products in my life to help me disconnect from the everyday stressors and to reconnect and be fully present to enjoy all the pleasure provided by my very attentive partner.

I hope you’ll enjoy this article by Foria as much as I did and that you’ll make time for yourself. Pleasure truly is the antidote for almost everything.

Enjoy! -Robbin

Better Sex with Cannabis

Many of us use cannabis daily to combat pain, insomnia, anxiety and stress, but this plant also has a rich history as an aphrodisiac and stimulant.

A frequent question we hear from our clients is “Which cannabis strain is best for sex?”. As these happen to be two of our favorite subjects, here’s how we respond:

First a little history.

Since cannabis helps people relax and can heighten the senses (especially the sense of touch), many people find that a toke or two will get them to a higher level of sensuality. Cannabis has been used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years around the world.

  • The ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine system used cannabis to increase libido, produce long-lasting erections, delay ejaculation, facilitate lubrication and loosen inhibitions.
  • In 19th century Serbia, female virgins were given mixtures of lamb’s fat and cannabis on their wedding night to make sex less painful.
  • Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon and other Middle Eastern and Northern African cultures used cannabis for sexual purposes in a potent form known as kif as recently as the early 20th century.

So what exactly is it about cannabis that turns people on?

Besides the obvious: heightened senses, relaxation and feelings of hyper-connection, there are also physiological effects throughout the body. THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in cannabis, not only releases dopamine in the brain — causing the “high” — it actually replicates the effects of a naturally occurring neurochemical called anandamide, often referred to as the bliss receptor. In addition, neurochemistry, hormonal systems and brain regions such as the temporal lobe are affected by both cannabis and sexual arousal.

Tread carefully in your explorations.

Cannabis doesn’t always make sex better. If you choose a strain that is too cerebral, it can be tough to focus on your partner (or yourself) when your mind is busy contemplating life, the universe and everything. Or if being high makes you suddenly hyper-aware of everything that is bothering you, the mood can be quickly spoiled.

The effects of cannabis also depend on the person’s tolerance — a couple of tokes may get one person in the mood, while another may need to get really high in order to feel a heightened sexual awareness or let go.

For those with lower tolerances, too much of the wrong cannabis may make you feel too tired or bring on paranoia. which is why using small doses or choosing strains low in THC or rich in CBD are a good choice sex.

But the positive effects of mixing cannabis with sex is what we hear about most.

All around, we get reports of increased libido, release of inhibitions and more satisfaction. Men often report bigger/harder erections and more stamina. Women report being able to let go of the day and responsibilities, increased wetness and enhanced orgasms.

Which leads us to the original question of which is the best strain?

The answer varies by individual, but also what type of sex you want to have.

For example, a more intimate session might benefit from a mild indica dominant strain or strains with an OG phenotype, such as OG Kush, to relax the body and mind without being overly sedating, –in fact when recommending variants of OG for sex, we tell people that the OG stands for “Orgasmic Goddess”.

Whereas a mild sativa dominant strain can be great for a more energetic session, stimulating the body and the mind.

A high CBD strain like Harli-Tsu or Equinox can decrease anxiety, relax the body and heighten all sensations without affecting the mind too intensely, making these nice options for those with lower tolerances.

Pairing any other cannabis product with a little Foria Pleasure™ is perfect for heightening female arousal, improving lubrication and most definitely,  intensifying orgasms (yes, plural!).

For more fun overall, go low and go slow.

No matter what strain or product you actually choose, we strongly recommend taking fewer or smaller hits if smoking, or low doses such as 2.5mg-5mg of an edible or tincture and adding more as you need it. Be sure to have plenty of water and fresh fruit nearby to ensure everyone stays hydrated.

Take your time,  have fun experimenting and it won’t be long before you find just the right combination to get you where you want to be. And then, sex as you know it may never be the same again.
