Aunt Flo Just Got A Little Bit Cooler
January 29th, 2018 – With states like California recently decriminalizing recreational marijuana consumption for adults, get ready to see a whole new “crop” of consumer goods touting the medicinal benefits of cannabis. Marijuana’s pain alleviating properties have been supported for years and a California-based company called Foria is now getting into the period business. (Floria blazed onto the scene a few years back with the release of its “Pleasure” spray, a cannabis-infused pre-lubricant sex spray designed to enhance sex.)
The pain and discomfort felt during menstruation is called dysmenorrhea, and it is no joke. However a more severe form called secondary dysmenorrhea is caused by the reproductive organs and can be excruciating for sufferers.
To deal with dysmenorrhea (now on NY state’s recently approved maladies that can be treated with medicinal marijuana), Foria created “Relief,” a suppository that when inserted delivers a pain relieving dose of marijuana right to the lady parts.
According to Foria’s website: “Each serving contains a specially formulated blend of THC and CBD, cannabinoids which are known to relax muscles and release tension and cramping in the body.”
And in case you were wondering if you would get high when using “Relief:”
“The majority of users do not report experiencing a psychoactive high when taking Foria Relief vaginally or rectally,” the company says.
The dosage is not designed to elicit a high but address pain, so those of you looking to cruise through the tough times stoned may be out of luck.
