Marijuana is becoming increasingly recognized as an effective medicinal product by both the common public and medical professionals alike. It is known to be able to treat a variety of medical conditions, ranging from glaucoma to insomnia.
However, it is probably best known for its use as a painkiller. Marijuana it is used to relieve many different types of pain, including pain caused by chemotherapy, inflammatory diseases and injuries.
Thanks to a new invention developed by Foria, a company focused on producing innovative cannabis products, marijuana’s pain killing properties may mean the end of period cramps as well.
Although the product being sold by Foria, called Foria Relief, aren’t typically considered to be tampons, they are suppositories that are inserted in a similar fashion. They can even be used along with tampons to maximize their comforting effects.
The suppositories are made out of only three natural ingredients: organic cocoa butter, THC oil, and CBD isolate. According to Foria, the combination of both THC oil and CBD isolate is meant to “activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body.”
This effect reportedly causes a decrease in pain and discomfort that often accompanies menstruation, and many users of the product have backed this claim up.
