Could these guys become the Carfax of cannabis? Two American companies in the cannabis industry this week announced a partnership that they say will result in the nation's "first fully electronic cannabis marketplace."

CannLabs, Inc. on Tuesday announced an agreement through its subsidiary StrainData to provide CannLabs’ certified testing data to the Amercanex Cannabis Exchange. Amercanex is the first fully electronic cannabis marketplace in which cultivators, wholesale distributors and retail vendors can buy, sell, or exchange their inventories in a fully transparent intrastate market.

A recent Huffington Post article called the legal cannabis industry “the fastest growing industry in the United States.”

Amercanex will extend its marketplace services to include, through StrainData, CannLabs’ cannabis potency and contaminant testing data. The StrainData search engine features “CannLabs certified” cannabinoid profiles for an exclusive network of premium cannabis providers.

By empowering growers and dispensaries to share their testing data in real-time, StrainData says it offers exchange members the ability to make informed decisions when purchasing cannabis.

Colorado: Marijuana-Based Sex Spray Hitting Shops

A new marijuana-based spray which claims to help women have better sex is hitting the shelves in Colorado this week.

Foria, containing cannabis extract, claims the relaxing properties of weed will help women have better and more satisfying sex, reports Trevor Hughes at USA Today. The spray has been available for a few months in California, but only to people with a medical marijuana authorization; the Colorado roll-out will be to the general public, since adults 21 and over are allowed to buy and use cannabis in the Rocky Mountain State.

The edible, coconut oil-based spray is designed to be sprayed onto the vagina about 30 minutes before sex. It's making its Colorado debut on Thursday at an Aspen marijuana boutique.

Foria originates from Aphrodite Group, a California medical marijuana collective. It's the latest in a growing line of cannabis-infused products, including lotions, candies and patches. The long history of marijuana use gives "significant credibility" to the concept, according to scientists.

"Cannabis is an aphrodisiac," said Genifer Murray, CEO of CannLabs, a leading marijuana-testing company. "And there's a lot of nerves down there."

Foria's slick marketing campaign is setting it apart from its competitors. The company is launching Foria at the X Games in Aspen, which begin January 22. A video on the Foria website features women speaking about how they use it and its effects.
