We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Katie Enright. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Katie below.
Alright, Katie thanks for taking the time to share your stories and insights with us today. It’s always helpful to hear about times when someone’s had to take a risk – how did they think through the decision, why did they take the risk, and what ended up happening. We’d love to hear about a risk you’ve taken.
Believe it or not, I was on the path to becoming a nun before my life took an unexpected turn. It all started during a study abroad adventure when I met this captivating individual named “Francois.” Well, let’s just say that lifelong vows of celibacy lost their appeal pretty quickly.
So, I veered off the path of nunhood and found myself in a world that had expectations when it came to sexuality. But here’s the catch—I felt like I was playing catch up in a race that was already in full swing. I was afraid to ask questions, afraid to explore, and questioning my own sexual worth. No one gave me a rule book or the tools to feel empowered and pleasured.
Being the lifelong nerd that I am, I immersed myself in studying everything there was to know about sex. Little did I know that years later, this knowledge would come in handy when I made another discovery—THC.
After a sports injury, I stumbled upon the wonderful world of cannabis. Of course, the bookworm in me needed to know EVERYTHING about it. That’s when I uncovered the mind-blowing connection between THC and mind-blowing sex. I started researching THC lubricants, but when I couldn’t find one that met my needs, I decided to create my own.
With tons of research, trial and error, and a partnership with a doctor and chemist, Lavinia was born. If you ask me, leaving behind my path to become a nun and starting a cannabis sexual wellness brand is the epitome of taking a HUGE risk. Let me tell you, it’s been massively rewarding. My mission to help people remains the same, but now the catalyst has changed.
Katie, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
Our mission is simple: to redefine pleasure and open up the dialogue around positive sexual experiences. We’re dedicated to creating THC & CBD products that enhance sexual pleasure and orgasms, putting the power of pleasure back in your hands (and other body parts). With Lavinia, you can explore, experiment, and embrace your unique sexual nature without hesitation.
Our flagship product, oh.hi, is a cannabis lubricant that delivers targeted THC and CBD to the pelvic and genital region, elevating the sexual experience unlike any lubricant you’ve tried before. Each touch feels electrified, heightening the pleasure for whomever is involved. It’s latex-friendly, glycerin-free, glycol-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic, unscented, unflavored, 100% vegan, and made using an FDA-approved silicone. oh.hi is safe to use with condoms, making it perfect for all types of bodies and all kinds of sex.
Because of my background and how little I understood sexuality, the topic of safe sexual exploration and education is so important to me. That’s why we not only take the utmost care to create the highest-quality THC and CBD sexual wellness products, but also encourage our customers to ask questions and to dive deeper in order to live life to the climax.
Can you tell us about a time you’ve had to pivot?
I’m constantly pivoting—it’s the nature of the game as a business owner. The key is to keep exploring alternative solutions and not lose your cool. Whether it’s a manufacturing cost that’s skyrocketed or a bottle that won’t work for your product, owning a company always keeps you on your toes. Try and trust the universe, because in the end, things usually work out for the best.
Can you share a story from your journey that illustrates your resilience?
Resilience is a big part of my journey. Starting this business, I heard “no” more times than I can count. My resilience and a touch of blind optimism kept me going. Every business owner faces countless hurdles, but if you truly believe you can overcome them, there’s nothing you can’t achieve. Just look at me—I went from nearly becoming a nun to owning a THC sexual wellness brand in over 200 dispensaries and counting. Anything is possible.
