Foria -- get your vulva high on cannabis

Foria Bottle
"Foria. The First Marijuana Infused Personal Lubricant for Her Pleasure" - from the Foria website.

What would happen if you took coconut oil and infused it with THC, the active ingredient in marijuana,  then you rubbed that on your clitoris and labia and in your vagina, waited 30 to 60 minutes, and then had sex? 

Here's how one woman in our community, age 70, described the experience:

I tried this product with a large dose of skepticism at first, but oh my god, I haven't had orgasms this intense for decades. It doesn't increase my arousal or bring me to orgasm faster, but once orgasm creeps up on me, it's more powerful and much deeper than what I've been experiencing as an older woman.

Over the past couple of months, I've continued to use Foria for special occasions -- I don't want to run out too fast! I use it for solo pleasure mostly. It's not condom-compatible, and I only have partner sex with condoms, so except for one lovely "hands only" partner encounter, I've reserved my dates with Foria for self-pleasuring. 

I continue to love this product! As I said, it doesn't affect arousal or decrease the time I need -- I can't even tell it's working until I actually reach orgasm. Then, it makes the orgasm feel deeper, fuller, and way stronger. I wish it were legal everywhere so every woman in our age group who is experiencing muted orgasms could try it.

Yeah, I wish it were legal everywhere, too, and without a medical marijuana prescription. Right now, Foria, a combination of coconut oil and THC (cannabis) oil, used on vulvas for sexual enhancement, is only available for residents of California with a physician statement and recommendation letter for the use of medical marijuana.

Have any of you used Foria? I'd like some opinions/experiences from other people who have tried it, especially (though not exclusively) from our 50-80+ age group. Contact me privately if you don't want to identify publicly, and I'll post for you.

If you tried it but you hesitate to make a public statement because you don't qualify for legal use, I'd still like to hear from you and will keep your info confidential. Email me with "Foria" in the subject line.

This post will be expanded once I gather more personal experiences. I hope to hear from you!

  1. That would have been great for me when I was on anti-depressants! Wish I had known about this then.

    So I tried a locally made THC oil and found it pretty awesome. We were instructed to put it on 1/2 hour before action, which really brought a heightened awareness to my bits. The one we tried had a mango scent which made it kind of weird but it was fine.

    More than anything it really deepened sensation. I don't think the 15 orgasm claim I have heard about this is realistic, but overall it made the sex more intense I think. Then again, having to wait for so long and being so externally slippery helped to make us more turned on to begin with. But like all sex enhancers, I think the claims can be over-stated. That said, I will use it again!

  3. How does this compare to that Asian ( hot) oil or a small drop of Testosterone cream on the clit? My doc suggested we try the T cream; very little and local. Heard of either?

    1. Not the same thing at all. I use the T cream -- it's great to replace diminished testosterone locally and make arousal easier. But Foria is solely a drug-induced orgasm enhancer, and a great one! I know nothing about Asian hot oil.

    2. my doc/our doc suggested we try it; and diluted some of my T cream for her (I'm on the needle w/ T now, 1x wk) ; the reason was less in the way of side effects, ( ie. lady grows mustache, not good) . But I've not been able to read about it anyplace, let alone where to buy it. (Again, I had T cream I wasn't using as I went on injections....5 ml 1x wk; most folks don't have that on hand.) Could you do a blog post on this?

    3. Any of your readers tried a vulva pump? I ordered one for her and was shocked that she tried it. It brought more blood flow to the vulva and clit and seemed to make orgasm a bit easier for her AND stronger. But, to tell the whole TMI truth? Experimenting with anal seemed to work even better even as to enhancing the strength of her orgasm. Yes, getting a little naughty seemed to be the key (a key) to arousal; hard to believe we are just discovering this at and in our mid 60s. as an intensity enhancement. Can I say the word Anal on the Joan Price network? Your not big on Kink or naughty it seems. Or am I off here?

    4. I used a vulva pump in the past -- now I find that arousal gels work just as well and are more fun.

      Really, Dan? You think kink and anal are off-limits? I'm shocked that you'd think so. Say whatever you like, just say it nicely (as you always do)!

    5. As a PhD student in Gerontology and 57 myself, I find it typical of research that men get an ED drug available everywhere years ago, yet if something like this helps women but it's illegal. Of course....most men are researchers. Ridiculous.

  4. Sounds great. It is not a problem with Female FC2 condoms. They are made with nitrile, not latex, and are impervious to oil.

  5. Only available in California you say. Pity! Legalization of marijuana is going to be a contentious issue in our next provincial election. Know who is getting my vote!!
