QOW – Combining CBD with Prescribed Meds


Can I safely combine CBD with prescribed medication?

In most cases, the use of CBD with other medications has been found to be beneficial.

While we are learning new things each day, what we don’t know about drug interactions outweighs what we do know. We often see amplification of the positive effects when combining CBD with pain relief or seizure meds.

The key here is to observe for any amplification of negative side effects.

In conjunction with the veterinarians and healthcare practitioners we’ve worked with through the years, we’ve come to make this suggestion when using CBD (or other cannabinoids) with prescribed medications.

  • Separate the administration of the CBD or cannabis product from most prescription or over the counter medications by 2-3 hours.
  • For medications in the Benzodiazepine or Steroid family, it is best to separate administration by 3-4 hours.


Foria Intimacy Products Now Available

Foria is a line of products designed for sexual wellness and enhanced, well…, everything in the bedroom.

When these products first appeared on the market nearly a decade ago, I was skeptic number one. But, let me tell you, they have won me over and are part of my personal toolkit.

Here are some quick and fun ways to use these products, from my own personal experience and feedback from our very satisfied clients.

Foria Awaken

A personal stimulant with a blend of CBD, MCT and select botanicals to enhance libido and sensation. The yummy formula stimulates the senses and warms the parts.

This is a topical personal stimulant that enhances sensation, vulva engorgement and intensifies orgasm. It is applied topically (a small amount will do) directly to the clitoris and labia area.

My #1 suggestion is to apply it 20-30 minutes before you engage. If you’re going out, take a little with you, pop into the ladies room and apply before you leave for home; then you’ll be good and ready when you arrive. If you’re already home, apply it and, partner(s), this part is for you: give some good long, kisses and lots of touching everywhere except the clitoral area, before jumping right in. I always think of John Cleese saying, “How about a kiss, boy?!” from that hilarious movie The Meaning of Life.

Between the activation of the Foria in the clitoral area and the anticipation, the results reported are explosive.

Foria Intimacy Suppositories

Tip #1: store these in the refrigerator or freezer so they remain solid. These are a great option for use as an all natural lube and much less messy than traditional lubes. It’s an ideal option for women experiencing vaginal dryness or painful intercourse. Depending on your planned activity, you can use the full suppository or stretch your budget and cut it in half. After inserting, be sure to stay in a prone position for 15-20 minutes before engaging.

Foria Sex Oil

I love that Foria has begun to produce this product. It comes in a 4 oz. bottle so you’ve got plenty to work with.

Slather this wherever you need a little more glide. Great for exploring new frontiers and a wonderful all natural vaginal lube.

For added pleasure to your sex time, mix a little with your favorite essential oil to make your own massage oil.

Did you get too excited and over-do it or feeling a little raw? Apply a little post-sex to soothe the clitoris, labia, vaginal or anal areas. Keep this bottle close at hand to use as needed before, during and after sex.
