One of the benefits of cannabis being legalized in more states is that there is has been a boom in the variety of products being created — and many are being formulated specifically for women! From personal lubricants to beauty products, edibles, period relief and more, there are many amazing products out there that women love. Check out some of our favorites!
Incorporating the concept of cannabis as a “therapeutic aphrodisiac,” Foria is an all-natural lubricant combining healing coconut oil and cannabis oil to provide a heightened sexual experience. Some women experience increased sensation and arousal using Foria, while for others it is a top-of-the-line lubricant that helps reduce pain and tension while increasing relaxation. Foria has also released a relief suppository which you can use specifically for menstrual cramps and pain. This is definitely a woman-centric cannabis company that shouldn’t be missed!

Their trademark “Soak, Savor, Rub, & Relax,” tag line offers a hint of the products offered, from a soothing cannabis and lavender infused bath salt to a THC-infused tincture, formulated to help with menstrual cramps and frayed nerves.

However, this note on the site should be kept in mind: “While most topical products do not produce psychoactive effects, it is possible for women to experience psychoactive effects when using Dixie Bath Soak.” So make sure to use responsibly!
While not a product in the traditional sense, Synchronicity is a site where the tag line reads “curated cannabis for women.” It is a community and space to join fellow women who are also finding ways to use cannabis for their health and/or daily lives.
