Marijuana Company Claims Its Weed Will Improve Your Sex Life

She calls it sexxpot.

One romantic evening, Karyn Wagner smoked herself some marijuana before making love with her partner. The experience was so ecstatic she believed the Mr. Nice strain of weed she smoked had magical properties. “After I had smoked this one, I said, ‘you know, honey, that was perfect. Save it for next time,” she told New York Magazine. Her partner labeled the baggie of weed “Sex Pot” and it gave Wagner an idea. The Paradigm Medical Marijuana owner soon began cultivating her version of Mr. Nice, re-branded it Sexxpot, and made it available to San Francisco Bay-area dispensaries.


Wagner believes the pot’s erotic qualities are due to its low levels of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. Sexxpot is 14 percent THC whereas most marijuana smokers prefer strains of 18 to 20 percent. “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,” cannabis consultant Eloise Theisen said.

“Women just need less THC in general,” Eloise Theisen says. “And high levels of THC can promote antiestrogen activity, though science is still very limited.” Although there is zero science to back up Wagner’s claim that her pot can help women achieve more pleasurable orgasms, her customers seem to be happy. According to Wagner, one customer says it relaxed her to the point that she stoped thinking during sex. “She wasn’t hyperaware or hyper-anything,” Wagner says.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
