A new innovative company in the medicinal cannabis industry may have found an all-natural and highly effective way for women to treat menstrual cramps and pains. No, they’re not actually cannabis tampons but rather small capsules, called Foria Relief.
When inserted directly into the vagina these cannabis tampons provide powerful pain relief.
Foria Relief, which pot enthusiast and writer Sophie Saint Thomas points out is “the first—and only—cannabis suppository on the market dedicated to treating menstrual cramps,” contains only three ingredients: organic cocoa butter, THC oil, and CBD Isolate.
Foria says that the combination of THC and CBD it uses in the suppositories was specifically designed to “activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body.”
Foria Relief is the newest product to come from cannabis company Foria, which has already established itself as something of a hero among female cannabis enthusiasts thanks to its marijuana-infused, stimulating personal lubricant, Foria Pleasure.
“Cannabis has a long, cross-cultural history of use as a natural aid in easing symptoms associated with menstruation,” the company’s website says.
“Our intention is to share the powerful medicinal properties of this plant while utilizing modern extraction techniques to standardize purity and potency, thereby ensuring a safe and accessible experience for all women.”
