Kim Koehler started her cannabis business because she was on a mission to help women. Specifically, to help women with sexual satisfaction.
In her 12 year career as an entrepreneur, Koehler had already launched multiple advertising and marketing campaigns before starting Privy Peach, a women-focused CBD topical company. When Koehler began working with a cannabis marketing agency, she noticed most cannabis products simply did not appeal to most women.
According to Koehler, no products on the market targeted women-specific issues, and she hadn’t come across any female-targeted cannabis products that, without the labels stripped away, would still clearly be geared towards women. So, Koehler created a line of products that would make women “feel good, smell good, and look good.”
Koehler set out to create a natural lubricant specifically designed for women with sensitivities and pain during sex. Her products are made with hemp-derived CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. By using CBD derived from industrial hemp, Privy Peach can ship the product nationwide.
“One of the amazing things about CBD is its anti-inflammatory quality,” said Koehler. “As an individual who suffered from severe pelvic pain during sex for multiple years, due to inflammation and muscle issues from a trauma I experienced, a light bulb went off. Why wouldn’t I be able to create an intimate oil that could not only increase circulation, but also provide anti-inflammatory benefits?”

She had been prescribed topical medications, recommended pelvic physical therapy, and tried other options, but nothing worked. Almost every time, sex ended in tears for Koehler. The pain was excruciating.
“It’s very humbling that the talk about Privy Peach has been spreading like wildfire,” she said. “And I have literally had reviews of my products bring me to tears. People tell me how they have dealt with pain from things like endometriosis, PCOS, PID, traumas, and other non-diagnosed chronic pain, and that this one product has given them their sex lives back. One woman accredited Privy Peach to potentially saving her marriage because she finally was able to feel comfortable having sex again. Another woman said she ‘literally cried happy tears’ because she hadn’t been able to enjoy sex due to pain.”
Privy Peach has released three different intimate products in the Between the Sheets intimate line, each with its own unique benefit, including a sensation-enhancing intimate topical. Koehler has also developed other products, such as a hair-growth mask and a wrinkle serum, both winning national awards shortly after their release. She has also been treating her anxiety and PTSD with her infused MCT oil, which she has named “Break Free.”
“One of the biggest problems is the lack of education when it comes to CBD,” she added. “People don’t know the difference between THC and CBD. They are worried that they will get high; people are worried that they will fail drug tests, or will be doing something illegal. As CBD becomes more mainstream, as it is, rapidly, I feel you will see this gem that is a part of the cannabis plant being infused into all kinds of cosmetics, foods, hair products, and more.”
Privy Peach has already changed lives and is rapidly becoming a major leader in the CBD movement.
