Painful Period Cramps? This Cannabis Tampon May Be For You
Do you suffer from painful period cramps every month? Well, one company may have the answer.

The Cannabis Tampon
The tampon, known as Foria Relief, isn’t like your typical tampon. The wellness company is selling them in packs of four and each one contains cannabis-based suppositories that are shaped like tampons. In case you’re not sure, a suppository is a solid dosage form that is inserted into the rectum, vagina or urethra, where it dissolves or melts to help relieve local pain.
So, how do you use it, exactly?
Based on user reviews, the cannabis ‘tampon’ should, in fact, be used alongside a regular tampon to help with absorption. Foria recommends using the suppositories along with tampons to increase the product’s comfort-providing effects.
“The vaginal suppository format helps deliver the medicine directly to where it is needed most,” the company page explains.
These suppositories are made out of just three natural ingredients — THC oil, CBD isolate and organic cocoa butter. 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.'
Foria aims to create products to alleviate pain that stems from a wide range of conditions, such as inflammatory diseases, physical injuries as well as pain associated with surgery and even chemotherapy.
Any cannabis advocate will be able to tell you that weed has been found to provide relief for a variety of conditions, including glaucoma, insomnia, and epilepsy. The medical benefits of marijuana are being recognized even in states where no current medical marijuana program exists. With awareness of the health benefits of cannabis ever increasing, it’s not unlikely that more products like Foria’s are set to emerge in the near future.
