Bliss was created from a marriage of my expertise in medicinal cannabis and sexual health.
DR. ALEX CAPANO
CHIEF SCIENCE OFFICER
I’m Dr. Capano, a nurse practitioner focusing on sexual medicine. I have a doctoral degree and I’m also a professor with a focus on the science of cannabis.
I’ve spoken with countless people who complain of being underwhelmed in their sex life. I’ve even written prescriptions for foreplay! I believe people are rushing into things. They’re inhibited, not communicating or telling their partners that there could be room for improvement. Some have dryness that leads to discomfort, and some just can’t light that fire of desire.
I developed Bliss after years of helping my patients lead happier, healthier, more powerful sex lives while simultaneously studying the biological science of cannabis. Once I validated the incredible benefits of cannabis, I knew it was something a wider range of consumers could benefit from and I was compelled to create Bliss.
Bliss can help elevate the sexual experience, especially if someone is dealing with dryness, particularly postpartum and post-menopausal dryness, any sort of pain with sex, or even anxiety with sex that may inhibit libido and hinder enjoying intimate moments. It’s brought pleasure to so many, and that’s why I named it, Bliss.
In 2016, Alexandra Capano became the first person in the U.S. (and possibly the world) to receive her doctorate in medical cannabis science. She is also a nurse practitioner with a background in adolescent medicine. Now, she works as the chief science officer at Ecofibre Limited, a start-up that makes medical-grade cannabis products and researches new ways to use hemp. As a healthcare provider with an entrepreneurial streak, Alex has found her sweet spot—it’s her job to research the wide-ranging medical benefits of cannabis, which has been used to treat conditions ranging from epilepsy to endometriosis to opioid addiction (with very promising results). Here, Alex talks about breaking new ground in medicine and struggling to find a career that suits her inner “chameleon.”
BLiss is for everyone and every body
As a nurse practitioner who focuses on sexual and reproductive medicine, I hear from so many patients who are underwhelmed or unfulfilled in their sex lives. This complaint is more common in women and often due to dryness or pain and, unfortunately, there are limited solutions
For men, prescription drugs are available, but they’re not always safe options. Folks who have undergone specific medical treatments, such as gender confirmation surgery, are often asking for safe options to enhance sensitivity.
I wanted to create a natural, effective alternative that could work for every body. When people enjoy sex and are empowered in their sex lives, they lead happier, healthier lives.
