People are waking up to the fact that cannabis can enhance their sex lives, with more research emerging to back up the traditional use of marijuana as an aphrodisiac. Beyond increasing feelings of sensuality and improving mood, using the herb medicinally lessens pain, anxiety and helps users center themselves in the moment and relax—which is why more businesses are developing cannabis-infused topicals and edibles meant to do just that.
Cannabis-as-a-sexual-aid pioneer Mathew Gerson, creator & co-CEO of Foria, explained: “When you have too much stress in the body, your body produces an overabundance of cortisol, which basically dampens your libido… If don’t feel safe, you’re not going to feel horny.”
The first cannabis-infused personal lubricant, Foria increases blood flow and aids relaxation, looking to reduce stress and anxiety. Along with their flagship lube, Foria also produces suppositories intended for rectal and vaginal use which address pelvic pain, PMS and menstrual cramps.
