MARIJUANA-INFUSED LUBRICANT PROMISES MULTIPLE ORGASMS
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
Have you ever dreamed of getting your genitals high? Well, that dream is now a reality. California medical marijuana provider Aphrodite Group recently introduced "Foria," a marijuana-infused lubricant that promises heightened sexual pleasure and multiple orgasms.
"For most women, relaxation is a key attribute in the experience of pleasure and arousal," Foria creator Matthew Gerson told Shape magazine. "We live in the time and era where we have a lot of residual stresses coursing through our bodies because of modern technology and the pace we're all living. The body's been around a lot longer than our iPhones have."
According to the product website's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), the lubricant should not be used the same way as traditional lube; instead, women would need to apply it a half hour before sex, so that the marijuana compounds "can be fully activated and absorbed" by the body.
The website lists the ways Foria users might experience greater sexual pleasure:
The experience may vary from time to time. Some women have experienced feelings of enhanced warmth, increased blood flow, tingling, and relaxation. Others have found it easier to reach orgasm or to have multiple orgasms, or that their climaxes are longer and/or more intense. For other women it has helped with relaxation and sleeping.
Still, the lube is not cheap. A one-ounce bottle will set you back $88, although a smaller, 5ml bottle is available for $24 on the product website. Like all products infused with marijuana, only California residents with valid medical marijuana licenses are allowed to purchase the lubricant, although the company is working to bring the product to Colorado and Washington, where marijuana is recreationally legal.
For those worried about tipping off their sexual proclivities to drug-sniffing dogs at airports, have no fear: according to the website, the lube is "virtually scent-free."
Medical Marijuana Could Help Treat Sickle Cell Disease

People who suffer from sickle cell disease have to deal with a lot of pain. Patients with sickle cell disease have crescent shaped blood cells, compared to disc shaped blood cells in people who don’t suffer from sickle cell disease. These cells block blood flow, which causes pain, fatigue, and organ damage. I’ve heard people that suffer from sickle cell disease describe the pain as being like nails poking their entire body.
Doctors usually prescribe opiate based pain killers like morphine for sickle cell disease. Opiate prescriptions have a lot of side effects including respiratory issues, damage to organs, and addiction to name a few. Compare that to medical marijuana, which has far less harmful side effects, especially if consumed in food or vapor form. Patients should have the option to choose medical marijuana if they want to. From Minnesota Daily:
School of Dentistry professor and pain expert Donald Simone, who is also working on the research project, said opiates sometimes have “problematic” side effects, such as respiratory depression. And Gupta said patients sometimes receive incorrect dosages of the drugs because their exact amount of pain is unknown.
Medical marijuana is promising for sickle cell patients because it has a pain-relieving effect without as many severe side effects as morphine, Simone said.
Right now researchers in California are teaming up with researchers at the University of Minnesota to find out how medical marijuana can help those suffering from sickle cell disease. Right now, sickle cell patients can get safe access to medical marijuana if they are in California. However, patients in Minnesota will have to wait until the condition is added to the list of approvable conditions in Minnesota, which could take awhile.
Florida Passes Medical Marijuana Bill Allowing Minimal Use
Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, June, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a medical marijuana bill into law on Monday that allows limited use of the strain "Charlotte's Web" to help treat those with epileptic seizures as well as other diseases.
The Charlotte's Web strain of marijuana was named after a Colorado girl, Charlotte Figi, who suffered from frequent seizures that lasted between two and four hours and required countless hospitalizations. The disease Charlotte suffered from is called Dravet Syndrome, which is a severe form of epilepsy that cannot be medicated.
It took a few years, but finally it was discovered that a strain of marijuana low in tetrahyrdocannabinol (THC) and high in cannabidiol (CBD) could control the excessive electrical and chemical activity in the brain that causes these seizures. THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana whereas CBD is the medicinal compound. Charlotte's mother took the suffering child to Colorado in hopes of treating her with this strain of marijuana. Now, Charlotte is given a dose of this cannabis oil twice a day and she's more alive and functional than ever.
Since then, the strain of marijuana was named after Charlotte, and it helps treat 41 other patients with similar symptoms as well as those with other forms of epilepsy. Governor Scott joined the effort to help promote certain forms of marijuana that can be effectively used as medicine. He spoke on Monday after signing the bill.
"As a father and grandfather, you never want to see kids suffer," said Governor Scott in this CBS Miami article. "The approval of Charlotte's Web will ensure that children in Florida who suffer from seizures and other debilitating illnesses will have the medication needed to improve their quality of life. I am proud to stand today with families who deserve the ability to provide their children with the best treatment available."
The bill was passed with bipartisan support, which made it easy for Governor Scott to sign because it shows it regarded an issue where people could drastically benefit from the marijuana's use. The success stories of Charlotte and other Dravet Syndrome patients also helped out the cause. Florida joined twenty other states and the District of Columbia who have laws that permit marijuana for medical use.
