New York Smash Magazine  



Teddy bears and jewelry are nice, but if you feel like being adventurous this Valentine’s Day, here are three aphrodisiac-infused gift ideas that can really make sparks fly.

1. Foria

Foria Cannabis Sexual Enhancement Oil

Foria

What Is It? Foria is a cannabis-infused sexual “pre”-lubricant for women that promotes sensual enhancement.

Key Aphrodisiac Ingredients: Cannabis. According to Foria and current medical research, Cannabis is known to promote relaxation and blood flow and affect the receptors in the brain responsible for tactile sensation and euphoria. Contemporary science confirms a long history of cannabis’ use as an aphrodisiac — from Hindu legend to Norse mythology to ancient Chinese medical texts, cannabis has been used by humans for millennia for it’s pleasure-enhancing effects.

Where To Buy It: Available in California and Colorado; $44 for 10 ml spray bottle (approximately 10 servings)/$88 for 30 ml spray bottle (approximately 30 servings) at foriapleasure.com.

It Should Be On Your Wish List Because… We all know that marijuana is used for various medicinal and recreational purposes, including better sex. With that in mind, Foria, a weed-infused sex oil, was created to enhance sexual pleasure for women. They call it a “pre”-lube because you’re supposed to spray it on to the vaginal area at least 30 minutes before sexual activity so it has a chance to kick in. Once it kicks in, your lady parts experience a “high” feeling (some people report heightened sensitivity, more pleasure, and longer, deeper orgasms). As current research suggests, it can also have other therapeutic benefits, such as better sleep and relaxation. Each spray of Foria contains a blend of 4-6mg of THC and liquid coconut oil. Oh, and by the way, it’s edible (making it a great alternative to that old heart-shaped box of chocolates).

2. “Caffe al Peppe” Coffee Drink
