09/19/2017 BLOG: How to improve intimacy with cannabis
Improving intimacy with Cannabis; The “How?”.
In this time of expansion and innovation in cannabis there are a variety of options to entertain when looking to improve intimacy.
Cannabis and intimacy
I can recall tales from our more “experienced” community members of coming across cannabis that got them, “Hot to Trot!” and old school street dealers sharing stories of desperate boyfriends and husbands looking for, “That stuff you gave me last time! She went wild!”. These anecdotal experiences support what we know to be true from personal experience, cannabis has been improving intimacy between partners for a long time, but how to find that “sexy” strain. Now there are folks out there that claim fame with strains specifically formulate for arousal, for example SexxPoT, this brand makes no specific claims (SMART!) but advertises as a strain that will “sweep her off her feet.”. I have not sampled SexxPot personally so I cannot support or deny their claim, BUT I do know cannabis effects each of our individual systems differently. So, in other words, if you do try this and it doesn’t work don’t fret, there may be an entirely different strain that may work wonderfully for your improved intimacy. My suggestion is this, record the strains profiles you have tried. Look at why you are struggling with intimacy and then address that issue with cannabis treatment. Do you need to mentally let go and relax? Look for a euphoric hybrid strain with an uplifting terpene profile.
This is similar to smoking without the odor and a great potential for sexy formulations with cannabinoid ratios and terpene profiles. These suggest remedies to inspire intimacy as well. The best example of this are the HMBLDT formula dose pens, in my opinion. They offer two formulas that fit our topic, Arouse and Passion. Now what I love best about these particular pens are, you guessed it, the PROFILES!!! Listed conveniently on the box, you now know what is IN the oil and what works (or doesn’t) for you in regards to these combinations. In addition to that, these specific pens provide measured dosing with every inhale, a great tool for beginners. micro-doser’s and for low tolerance consumers. Brilliant right? When it works always pay attention to what is in it. You can find all the HMBLDT pens at ClubM.
The abundance of cannabis topicals for pleasure is a sure sign of filling a need in the market. The appeal of cannabis topicals goes beyond the average cannabis patient or recreational consumer. Women who may not consider cannabis for their lifestyle are more apt to engage in topical use, especially in the name of improved intimacy or sexual pleasure in our experience. And the options available reflect that, from CBD only topicals, to formulated ratios for condition management, to plain pain relief these products are in demand by women everywhere. Again when making your selection I would remind you to consider what you are treating. Are you looking to spice things up or relieve some perineal soreness in order to enjoy intercourse pain-free again. Foria has a great line of products for pleasure but by all means do not limit yourself! Find an application you are comfortable with, some come as balms or salves, others are oils in pump bottles. We like the Foria spray bottle for less mess but we also recognize the potential for using a balm or salve if incorporated into the methodology. We are looking into obtaining a certain bath bomb from an awesome Southern California Woman Business owner. If you get your hands on a Queenie ‘Sex Pot’ bath bomb please let us know how you enjoyed it!!!
My personal experience with cannabis edibles designed for intimacy is limited. In looking to expand our horizons I have chosen to go with more of a, “recommended adventure list”. Remember, start low and slow. First up, 1906 has these sexy-as-all-get-out chocolates!!! What is better than sexy chocolates??? A sensual combination to be sure. Check out High Love ladies, these exquisitely presented confections are a 1:1 THC:CBD ratio with exotic botanical blends to inspire! A must-try in my book! (read more in Cosmopolitan ) Next, the adorable Love Potion #420 by Yummi Karma. We love it’s campy Bonnie Bell designs and branding. I love that it is an MCT oil making it fast acting, versus your typical edible needing to process through the liver before any effects are yielded. Did you know Yummi Karma is a women-owned, women-run business? Learn more here. We can imagine the sexy cocktail combinations or an immediate dose for spontaneity! Oh the possibilities…
Mindful practice is important to utilizing cannabis benefits. Communication is key, talk to your partner about incorporation of cannabis and comfort levels to ensure a safe and responsible experience. Want a daily reminder of the sexy and empowered woman you are??? Our 15 oz. “FireWoman” coffee mug is available now in the storefront! Grab yours today, they are only available for the month of September 2017!!!
(NOTE: Keep a CBD MCT tincture on hand to help ease any feelings of over-consumption and remember to relax, the feeling will pass.)
You will be sent a Paypal invoice for the full amount. Shipping is free. Your order will be processed once payment is complete. These are donation driven sales to support our organization. Thank you for your support!
The Conscious Consumer: A new patient’s point of view buying medical cannabis
Please welcome, The Conscious Consumer! She has granted us access to her experiences as a woman patient from Riverside County as a contributing blogger and we are extremely grateful to have her. Enjoy! – Cara
A new patient’s point of view buying medical cannabis.
I am a new medicinal cannabis patient, I am also a female over the age of 25. I live in Riverside County where there is only one dispensary and they price cannabis according to the per capita income of our wealthy, mostly white, Christian suburb. This is my account of buying medicinal cannabis in a dispensary for the first time.
Most of the dispensaries are located north in the city of Lake Elsinore along the east shore where crime is high and the neighborhoods are sketchy at best. It is not a place I enjoy going to and makes buying my medicine an anxiety filled chore. Most of these places are close to 100 year old homes turned retail shops that if you didn’t notice the green light on the outside you would pass right on by.
My first stop is in a little cottage and once inside, I see how the place is practically falling apart. As I sat in the tiny waiting room, I notice the wooden window frames are pulling away from the rotted and old plaster on the walls. It smells of dank and mold all at the same time. I’m not quite sure if this is where I want to buy quality medicine but I convince myself to take the risk. It’s not all bad at this place though, the staff was super nice and they did have their strains tested for THC and CBD percentages. However, the budtender didn’t say whether or not the cannabis had been tested for herbicides/pesticides or mold, and I didn’t press the issue as a nervous first time buyer.
The dispensary had about 20 different strains of sativa, indica, and hybrid varieties. Out of those, only two strains were high in CBD. Neither of those strains was higher than 10% CBD. I was looking for the popular CBD rich strain called ACDC which they didn’t carry, so I purchased a hybrid variety called Cherry Bomb instead. (***disclaimer: the strain Cherry Bomb is NOT a 1:1, we share this to show how staff is not always educated on cannabis and how this impacts patient care***) It’s a strain that has a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD. The budtender did throw in a free pre-roll for me as a first time customer which was nice.
The second stop was at a dispensary down the road from the first, in a warehouse painted black with no windows and a front door painted green. To one side is an empty lot filled with weeds and on the other side is a restaurant. There is no official parking lot and I have to park on the main road. Surprisingly, this store looks rather new inside and is much larger than the first. There is a large staff that is mostly female and under the age of 25. I think the only male staff there was the security guard in the waiting room. The budtenders were friendly and mostly clothed, minus one young lady who seemed to think wearing a super low cut dress with her breasts falling out was appropriately professional. (Sigh.) This dispensary had sold out of the ACDC strain by the time I got there, but I did buy the hybrid strain Cannatonic that was 4.2% THC and 7.6% CBD. All of their buds were held in clear jars that were labeled and displayed in lighted cases that were easily viewable although not specially presented.
Overall, my experience buying medical cannabis for the first time was a disappointment. I was disappointed in the professionalism of these workplaces. It may not be their fault; maybe my personal wish for safe and sustainably grown cannabis is too much to ask for at this point in southern California dispensaries. Maybe it was the area I was buying in, and the city ordinances that prevent these businesses from moving into safer, newer, and more visible shopping centers. Maybe it’s the city’s voters that don’t want dispensaries in major shopping centers. All of these are possible reasons for the seedy environment I am forced to buy my cannabis from, along with many other social stigmas that go along with cannabis use.
I personally look forward to recreational use in 2018. I hope it will bring cannabis to the forefront as a viable industry for small farmers in California. I want an industry where cannabis will be tested for pesticides (hopefully) as well as potency, and bring marijuana out of the dark ages and into the new hands and bright minds of creative entrepreneurs. I’m ready to see class and professionalism be brought to the industry that California consumers deserve and will surely demand.
