These Painkilling Marijuana Tampons May Be The End of Period Cramps


Marijuana is known to be able to treat numerous medical problems, from glaucoma to insomnia. However it is mostly known for its use as a painkiller to relieve many different types of pain, including pain caused by chemotherapy, inflammatory diseases and injuries.

A company that is focused on producing cannabis products, Foria, has developed a new invention that might end the period cramps for good.

Cannabis Tampons

These revolutionary products called Foria Relief aren’t really considered to be tampons; they are suppositories that are inserted in a similar fashion. They can also bee used along with tampons to maximize their comforting effects.

This product is made using 3 natural ingredients: organic cocoa butter, THC oil and CBD isolate. The combination of THC oil and CBD isolate activates certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region in the body, this leads to decrease in pain and discomfort that is caused by menstruation. The cannabinoids causes the nerves in the uterus, cervix, and ovaries to block out pain. It also relaxes any of the surrounding smooth muscle tissue.

Foria Relief is meant to relieve pain closest to the area where it is inserted. This means it can be inserted vaginally to relieve pain in the womb area often caused by menstruation. Some users have also reported benefits from inserting it rectally, claiming that it relieved pain in the back and hip area, places which are also commonly affected by menstruation.

On average, women reported feeling pain and comfort relief around 15-30 minutes after insertion. If being used in combination with a typical tampon, Foria Relief should be inserted prior to the tampon.

It is also common to experience some form of leakage a few minutes after insertion as the cocoa butter will eventually melt after use.

It should be noted that, when not being used, Foria Relief should be stored in a cool, dry area such as the refrigerator. If it is stored in an area with heat higher than 76 degrees Fahrenheit, it will melt.
