In the wake of Covid-19, there’s been a global shift in recognizing how important our health is and how it affects our relationships. Sexual wellness is a key part of overall wellness and it’s been proven that orgasms can boost immunity and improve sleep. Unfortunately, many people are so stressed out that they’re having a tough time getting out of their head, focusing on pleasure and connecting with their partners.
After nearly two decades working in the sexual health industry, the most frequent question I’ve been asked is, “Can cannabis really improve my sex life?”
It’s no secret that the methods of consuming marijuana have evolved from simply smoking the flower. From bath salts, gummies to skincare, entrepreneurs are making use of cannabis in dozens of new and creative ways, some psychoactive and some not. After hearing that question a million times and having my own personal experiences, I set off to create a line of products that would help empower women in their sexuality and pleasure. First, we created a non-THC line made with premium hemp seed oil, with products ranging from a massage oil to a Stimulating Oil and Stimulating O Gel for Women. We received countless reviews from customers claiming that the Stimulating Oil and O Gel have improved their sex lives, so we knew we needed to incorporate THC into our formulas.
We know marijuana can help reduce stress, increase the pleasure from physical touch and boost feelings of euphoria; all of which can help improve intimacy and sexual health. Certain terpenes, such as linalool and limonene, are even said to boost sexual desire. Strain selection and THC level matter here because you’ll want something mild so that you’re still energetic enough to engage with your partner.
In Colorado, we offer dry flower and pre-rolled joints made with a strain carefully selected for its aphrodisiac terpenes, a THC-infused intimacy oil, and a THC lip balm. We plan to offer three different strains: one balanced blend, one sativa and one indica, all suited to different needs or phases of intimacy (a sativa for foreplay, a hybrid for intercourse itself and an indica for a mellow afterglow). No need to try them all in one night, of course, but the variety means more chances that any given client will find the right match.
