Your period can cause all sorts of discomfort, not least of which is stomach cramping. Now there’s an alternative to downing ibuprofen by the handful. Foria, the makers of marijuana lube, have introduced cannabis vaginal suppositories to help ease the pain.
For treating the menstrual cramps before doctors have used other forms of the known pain reliever. Morton Barke, M.D., a retired gynecologist and medical director of a California medical marijuana evaluation center, told 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. In addition when is inserted vaginally, the ingredients activate cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region. According to The Hearty Soul, cause nerves in the uterus, cervix, and ovaries to block pain.
