One night, pot enthusiast Karyn Wagner smoked up with her partner before having what she later described as the best sex she’d ever had.
“After I smoked this one, I said, ‘you know, honey, that was perfect. Save it for next time,'” she said in an article published by The Cut.
That night proved to be life-changing for Wagner, not only in terms of her sex life, but also in terms of her entrepreneurial life.
Already a presence in the cannabis industry, Wagner began working to create a strain that would allow her—and any other woman—to experience the same mind-blowing sexual experience she’d had that fateful night more than a year ago.
And now it seems she’s succeeded.
Her company is now selling a special strain it calls “Sexxpot,” which Wagner says is specially designed to help women attain incredibly pleasurable orgasms.
According to The Cut, the new strain is derived from a low-THC strain called “Mr. Nice” and contains somewhere around 14 percent THC, relatively low compared to other popular strains, which are typically around 18 to 20 percent THC.
“She says that’s a benefit, because the product will put you in a ‘sensual’ headspace and affect the body’s sensations without getting the smoker too high to actually do the deed,” The Cut explained.
Eloise Theisen, a cannabis consultant and nurse practitioner, told The Cut that “women just need less THC in general. And high levels of THC can promote anti-estrogen activity.”
“My guess is that Sexxpot, with the lower THC, regulates the body’s endocannabinoid system and helps bring back the balance of hormones, but without sacrificing the therapeutic properties.”
While marijuana’s possible aphrodisiac properties aren’t anything new, what is note worthy about Wagner’s new strain is that it’s the first one designed specifically to enhance the sexual experiences of women.
Echoing the sensuality of its strain, the only description of Sexxpot Wagner’s company gives is in the form of a poem:
“Turn down the volume… Dial up the heat…
Favorite child of the legendary Mr. Nice,
only recently came out of seclusion.
Sexxpot’s embrace is smooth, sweet and mild.
You’ll be swept off your feet, melting in its arms
Mmmm… There’s something in the air.”
As of now, Sexxpot is only available in the San Francisco Bay Area, but Wagner hopes to expand distribution in the future.
