Women of the UK rejoice. The cannabis-infused, orgasm-inducing CBD lube from FORIA that has been making waves across America is finally available to buy here in the UK.
What is FORIA Awaken?
Sold by Hemp Botanics, both in-store and online, FORIA Awaken is the first of its kind. An all-natural sensual enhancement oil designed for women and their partners, Awaken is made with a blend of 8 plant-based aphrodisiacs – including cannabis – suspended in MCT oil and nothing else.
With a rich natural chocolate & mint aroma, FORIA Awaken is reported to increase arousal, promote natural lubrication, and heighten tactile sensation — making orgasms fuller, more intense, and easier to attain.
The ingredients of this intimate CBD oil are full-spectrum cannabis (hemp) oil, coconut-derived MCT oil, kava root extract (which stimulates the same receptors as THC, the cannabis compound that gets you high), cinnamon extract, ginger extract, cardamom oil, peppermint oil, vanilla extract and cacao oil.
All ingredients, which are 100% natural and organic, have long histories as traditional aphrodisiacs across cultures.
The final product is independently tested for purity, ensuring that it’s free of pesticides, heavy metals, microbes and other toxins.
What does it do and how does it work?
Perhaps the most important component in the product is the CBD naturally found in cannabis oil. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a potent compound that is the exploding in popularity in the health and wellness worlds.
While potent, it doesn’t get you high or intoxicated in any way and, in fact, offers a wealth of health benefits such as lowering anxiety, fighting inflammation, and generally inducing feelings of relaxation and calm.
This helps Awaken to reduce physical tension and discomfort in order to create the relaxation & enjoyment necessary for a night of passion. With a rich natural chocolate & mint aroma, it can also be used as an intimate massage oil.
It is also true that cannabis has the ability to improve blood flow, which is the main reason why women particularly are raving about how FORIA Awaken can help enhance the sexual experience.
The multi-aphrodisiac formula is said to “enhance tactile sensation & pleasure while decreasing tension, discomfort and dryness,” according to the brand’s website.
Reviews of FORIA Awaken
We also had a look on FORIA’s website to read some reviews. Here’s the very latest review of FORIA Awaken at the time of writing this article:
“I am a 64 year old married lady. My husband and I have recently discovered Foria Awaken. What an amazing product! I only wish that other women my age would give this product a try. It has definitely put a spring in our step. I can’t wait to see what Foria will come up with next. Thank you Foria!”
Further down the page, there’s a review with the title, “Oh. My. God.” It continues, “I’m still breathless from what just happened. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed.”
How do you use FORIA Awaken?
To use FORIA Awaken, you and your partner could simply apply it to your nether regions just like regular lube and get going. If you’re riding solo, the lube can also be applied liberally directly to the clitoris, inner and outer labia and inside the vagina. Alternatively, you could use it to exchange a sensual and romantic massage with your partner.
The CBD should be absorbed within about 10-20 minutes and then, once you’re both fully relaxed, you can submerge yourself into each other and enjoy the heightened senses and presence that FORIA Awaken induces.
Does it get you high and is it legal in the UK?
No. FORIA Awaken contains a hemp extract with zero THC. It is also completely legal in the UK as the cannabis used to make it is legally-grown hemp from Colorado, America. Hemp is legal to grow in the U.S and the UK under licence as long as it has low levels of THC.
How much is it and where can you buy it?
It is for sale for £54 at Hemp Botanics. You can buy it online here or at their premises on Portobello Road in London’s Notting Hill. Each bottle contains 20-30 servings
FORIA Awaken is edible, vegan and gluten-free and not compatible with latex condoms.
