The first-ever marijuana-infused sexual enhancement product designed specifically for women has come to market. Meet: Foria.
The one-ounce, $88 spray bottle of “pre-lube” contains thirty servings of cannabinoid-infused coconut oil. Launching soon, it will only be available to medical cannabis patients in California.
The Southern California makers of Foria, dubbed “Aphrodite Group,” note that cannabis is one of the oldest known aphrodisiacs. (Weed’s main active ingredient, THC, mimics the neurotransmitter anandamide, which causes euphoria and can facilitate arousal.) The group tested its products on about 100 volunteers in and around the Bay Area.
One of our colleagues up in America's domestic pot growing epicenter - the Emerald Triangle - sent us this photo taken in traffic. The fertilizer featured — "Fox Farm" — is a favorite among cannabis farmers. Spring is a busy time in the Triangle as growers germinate and nurse seedlings indoors and prepare to transfer them outdoors or into greenhouses after the last rains.
Partnership for a Drug-Free America is ready to concede. Pot legalization is "happening in America," said executive director Steve Pasierb, in an interview with AdAge.com published this week.

In another sign of how more and more Americans are coming out of the cannabis closet, very mainstream network television actor Aubrey Plaza of "Parks & Recreation" appeared on a weed-focused online video series and apparently knows a LOT about vape pens.
The legalization of marijuana has brought to the foreground an interesting juxtaposition: Ski resorts are happy to get you blasted on no-limit, $12 bloody marys at the mid-mountain lodge, but if you smoke a bowl in the trees — well, that’s against federal law and you're a criminal.
Intrepid parents of America’s Girl Scouts are boosting their kids’ sales of Thin Mints, Samoas, and more by targeting pot clubs this year.
Families are setting up tables in front of cannabis storefronts, hollering out “cookies!”, and then selling boxes of cookies to marijuana users. (Cannabis is, of course, a powerful appetite stimulant that works directly on nerves in the stomach as well as the brain.)
