This line claims to offer relief from migraines, menstrual pain, insomnia and fight loss of libido. Zoom in on current fashion, and how to make your own cannabis infusions (Classic Marijuana Tea, Marijuana Herbal Tea, Marijuana Chai Latte).

The “High Tea”

In a recent story from Culture Chronicle's cannabis website, GreenState.com, writer Amanda M. Fairbanks reveals the details of the party.

“In general, the group was white and middle-aged, an equal mix of professional women and friends from wealthy families,” she writes.

While many supporters don't feel comfortable releasing their full names (for fear of criticism), they haven't shied away from praising the benefits of cannabis-infused tea. Katie, a mother of two, said that Kikoko's Sensuali-Tea, intended to help with loss of libido, gave her a boost in the bedroom… After trying the tea, she and her partner experienced of "Super-amplified orgasms".

Kikoko offers four varieties of tea: Sympa-Tee, Sensuali-Tea, Positivi-Tea and Tranquili-Tea. Chacun containing between 3 and 10 mg of THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis. The teas, sold in a box of ten sachets each, go between 40 $ and 56 $ ...

Another supporter, Catherine, 48, started using edibles to treat her insomnia. This in the hope of avoiding pharmaceuticals. But the edibles left a scent on her breath, and her kids noticed it. Cannabis-infused tea, however, left no trace.

“My kids don't know what I'm doing. I'm just making tea, ”she said. “It's something you can definitely do every night”.
