There are quite a few natural ingredients that pull double-duty as lube: aloe, coconut oil… and marijuana?
Yes, seriously: Foria Pleasure, a soon-to-be-released ‘pre-lube’ for women is made with cannabis. Why? THC, the main mood-altering chemical in pot, is said to help stressed-out women relax their pelvic muscles, making it easier to get to the Big O.
Is it safe to use on our most sensitive of sensitive areas? Foria Pleasure is also made with one of the safest natural lubricants, coconut oil, but the jury is still out on utilizing cannabis in the bedroom.
“There’s very little research on the safety and effectiveness of products like Foria Pleasure,” says Sara Gottfried, M.D., a Harvard M.D. and OB-GYN. “Some studies show that in animals, cannabis can adversely affect the vagina and uterus, and cause cessation of menstruation.”
Foria Pleasure will be out later this spring, but there’s one very important thing to note before you plan some marijuana-laced nookie: You have to live in a state that allows the legal sale of marijuana for medicinal or recreational use. You must have a medical marijuana card to even try a sample of the new product.
But, does it actually work?
“Some women with tight vaginal muscles anecdotally say that it helps them relax their pelvic tone,” adds Dr. Gottfried, “but data are lacking.”
Think we’ll skip on the vagina-toking for the time being.
