In case you're late to the party: marijuana isn't just for smoking anymore. Although hemp clothes and cosmetic products have been around for a while, thanks to sex-positive engineers and entrepreneurs around the world, there are now more cannabis products for vaginas than ever before.
As of 2017, 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes. If you need a refresher, the health benefits of weed go far beyond merely feeling awesome AF (which is a not-too-shabby side effect). Marijuana can help treat and even prevent glaucoma, it can help control epileptic seizures, it can slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease, it can lessen the symptoms of arthritis, and it can even help treat anxiety. So what does all this have to do with your sex life?
Because marijuana alleviates pain and reduces inflammation, it's the perfect prescription for vagina-having folks to better handle their bits. After all, vaginas are known to get dry, get achey, and make life less-than-pleasurable at the most inopportune times, so who wouldn't want a little barely legal (depending on what state you live in) boost?
Here are five cannabis products for your vagina to try:
1. Weed Lube
This plant based sexual enhancement lube was named "sex product of the year" by GQ when it was released in 2014. Made with a proprietary blend of "nourishing liquid coconut oil and lab-tested cannabis oil," Foria is designed to increase sensitivity and heighten orgasms. Unfortunately, at the moment it's only available to Californians with a doctor's note, Coloradans who can find Foria in recreational stores, and Canadians.
2. Cannabis Ointment For Cramps
Whoopi & Maya’s Medical Cannabis Rub has been specifically designed to combat cramps. This body salve is crafted with cannabis and other analgesic herbs and essential oils to stave off uterine cramping and soothe sore joints and back pain while remaining chemical free. All you need to do is rub it outside the impacted area (not on your vulva or vagina!) and voila, feel the pain melt away.
3. Bong Dildo
It may sound ridiculous, but this glass bowl that doubles as a dildo has actually received rave reviews. Despite the crass and cheesy packaging, the Peter Piper Pecker Puffer does offer vagina-havers the option to toke on a pipe before they lay some pipe into themselves — or an eager partner.
4. Cannabis Suppository
Foria Relief targets the bane of every period-having-person's existence: menstrual cramps. Designed with a blend of THC and CBD, these suppositories go straight to the offending area to relax muscles and ease tension. According to folks who have tried Foria's green insertables, within 15-30 minutes you'll be on a heavenly, pain free plane of existence.
5. Weed-Flavored Condoms
OK, so maybe your vagina won't fully appreciate these while using them, but your mouth sure will! Cannadom Condoms reportedly have a "realistic cannabis flavor and smell" for the weed obsessed folks who want to keep their safe sex game strong.
And although it may seem silly, there are plenty of us who still live in states where marijuana remains illegal, where even a whiff of weed during sex is enough to get you dreaming of higher times.
