Could Weed Tampons Be The Answer For Your Cramp Relief?

Your period can cause all sorts of discomfort, not least of which is stomach cramping. But now there’s an alternative to downing ibuprofen by the handful: Foria, the makers of marijuana lube, have introduced cannabis vaginal suppositories (weed tampons) to help ease the pain.

Doctors have used other forms of the known pain reliever to treat menstrual cramps before. Morton Barke, M.D., a retired gynecologist and medical director of a California medical marijuana evaluation center, told Racked that cannabis is a “fantastic modality” for helping patients with dysmenorrhea, or painful menstrual periods.

Foria Relief “tampons” ($44 per 4-pack) contain only three (all natural!) ingredients: organic cocoa butter, CO2 extracted cannabis oil, and a cannabidiol (CBD) isolate, one of the main chemicals in marijuana. When inserted vaginally, the ingredients activate cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region and, according to The Hearty Soul, cause nerves in the uterus, cervix, and ovaries to block pain.

For those wondering about the obvious question here: No, it doesn’t get you high. This particular delivery system sends the medicine directly to where it’s needed, maximizing the “muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic high,” according to the company’s website.

Customer reviews for the product say it helped relieve cramps in as little as eight minutes, and even left one user “decidedly dreamy,” though some said it wasn’t effective on back pain.
