There are already so many ways to ingest weed: You can smoke it in a joint. You can rip it from a bong. You can eat it in the form of a baked good or a gummy candy. You can have it in a tea or a tincture. You can vape it. You can use a lotion, a lip gloss, or a lozenge. So many ways! Who could ever think of any more?


Foria, a cannabis company, first raised the question of whether it was possible to get high through your vagina last year, when it started selling a line of weed lube. Now it has released a new vagina-weed product, Foria Relief, a suppository meant to soothe menstrual cramps.


The capsules are all-natural — made from organic cocoa butter, CO2, THC oil, and CBD isolate — and offer pain relief by activating cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region.


They are easy to insert, just like a tam...

Floridians will decide this November whether to allow medical marijuana in the state.


On Wednesday, a constitutional amendment to legalize the drug gained enough signed petitions to qualify for the ballot next November. If passed, the amendment would allow doctors to describe marijuana for people with “debilitating conditions” such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, epilepsy or multiple sclerosis.


“This November, Florida will pass this law and hundreds of thousands of sick and suffering people will see relief,” Orlando lawyer John Morgan said in a written statement. “What Tallahassee politicians refused to do, the people will do together in this election.”


Morgan is the chairman of United for Care, the group behind the amendment, and has bankrolled it to this point, contributing nearly all of its $3.3 million in do...

While marijuana may hold a myriad of health benefits, one researcher believes that pot may actually be detrimental to sexual health.


While past studies have hailed using cannabis to enhance sexual activity, sex researcher Justin Lehmiller details in a recent Playboy article how pot may cause whiskey dick’s equally annoying cousin — weed dick.


“Consistent with the idea that higher doses of cannabis may be problematic, research has found that the prevalence of erectile dysfunction is three times as high for daily marijuana smokers compared to those who don’t use it at all,” Lehmiller says.


Lehmiller cites animal studies showing that cannabis can have an inhibitory effect on certain receptors inside the erectile tissue of a penis, although those same studies have not yet been researched in humans.

Sister Kate calls herself an “accidental nun.” At age 16, she tried marijuana for the first time inside a friend’s car during a cold Wisconsin winter. But that was when she was a “good mid-western Catholic girl,” and the drug did nothing for her.


Years later, after her first marriage had come and gone, after she moved to Atlanta to work for General Electric, Kate tried weed again (not to mention cocaine.) This time was different, she wrote on her blog: “I learned that w
