Bay Area women get high on cannabis-infused tea
Three dozen women, most wearing cocktail dresses and vintage hats, gathered in the backyard of a private Mill Valley, Calif. home last month to snack on delicate finger sandwiches, chat, and microdose on cannabis-infused tea.
The "High Tea" was one of a few recent Bay Area parties hosted by Kikoko, a newly launched line of cannabis-infused organic teas that claim to offer relief from migraines, menstrual pain, insomnia, and loss of libido.
In a recent story from the Chronicle's cannabis culture site, GreenState.com, writer Amanda M. Fairbanks reveals the party's details.

"In general, the group was white and middle-aged, an equal mix of professional women and affluent homemakers," she writes. While many party-goers didn't feel comfortable disclosing their full names (out of fear of being criticized or their children being denied playdates) they didn't shy away from praising the benefits of cannabis-infused tea.
Katie, a mother of two, said Kikoko's Sensuali-Tea, intended to aid loss of libido, gave her a boost in the bedroom. After trying out the tea, she and her partner experienced "super-amplified orgasms."
