FORIA Awaken was created to benefit women's health and well-being by opening the door to natural, euphoric pleasure.
Wherever you might find yourself on the pleasure spectrum, Awaken works with your body’s natural systems to promote relaxation and increase blood flow, for a potent “therapeutic aphrodisiac” effect.
For some women, Awaken may increase arousal, promote natural lubrication, and heighten sensation, making orgasms fuller, more intense, or easier to access. For others, Awaken may help reduce physical tension and discomfort, creating the relaxation necessary for sensual experience or restorative rest.
The secret? Awaken’s synergistic blend of 8 all natural aphrodisiacs including Kava Kava, Ginger, Cinamon, Hemp, Cardamom, Peppermint, Vanilla and Cacoa.
KAVA (PIPER METHYSTICUM)
Kava Kava is one of Mother Nature’s greatest healing herbs, which have been treasured throughout the South Pacific for millennia for it's intimacy enhancing properties.
Traditionally consumed in community at the end of a hard day, Kava creates a deeply nourishing state of bliss, unwinding both physical tension, social anxiety, and creative blocks. Kava is often added to topical preparations for releasing muscle spasms & soothing pain.
You may have noticed the effects Kava provides are very similar to cannabis, which is likely due to a compound in kava that binds to the same receptor as THC. Kava is full of compounds called kavalactones; one kavalactone called yangonin interacts directly with the CB1 receptor which is predominant in the central nervous system. Similar to cannabis, kavalactones bind to brain locations associated with addiction and cravings.
Our respect for Kava’s many traditional uses led us to explore its powers in this synergistic blend, and the delightful results prove Mother Nature’s genius at creating healing and pleasure. We chose to use only noble varietals of Kava, primarily from Vanuatu, where it is carefully cultivated and strictly monitored to ensure quality and safety.
CACAO (THEOBROMA CACAO)
Theobroma cacao, literally translated as “cacao, food of the gods,” is a superfood that contains many therapeutic properties. Cacao contains several of different “happy brain” chemicals such as theobromine, phenylethylamine, tryptophan, and anandamide.
Cacao is rich in anandamide (uh-non-da-mide), an endocannabinoid that is naturally produced in the human brain; it regulates mood, memory, appetite, and pain perception. Anandamide is known as the “bliss” neurotransmitter because it causes a euphoric “high” when released — it is often called the body’s natural version of THC.
Plant-derived anandamide (as found in cacao) lingers in the body, drawing out the joyful feeling longer than your average runner’s high. Cacao and cannabis are the only known plants containing compounds that connect into certain receptor sites in the human brain in a “lock & key” system.
Cannabinoids from the Hemp plant have remarkable balancing effects in nearly every system of the body, with an overall effect that’s both soothing and energizing. Both clinical research and reports from Medical Cannabis patients show that cannabinoids are effective for everything from unwinding muscle tension to relieving social anxiety. In addition to helping neutralize physical discomfort, many patients report that cannabinoids are superb for enhancing sensation and uplifting mood.
All of this makes for a delightful partner in sexual pleasure & healing. Thousands of women (and quite a few men) have used Foria’s Medical Cannabis formulas, reporting enhanced pleasure and heightened orgasmic experience, as well as profound relief from menstrual discomfort and even sex-induced pain.
