A company called Foria Relief has created what could soon be a replacement for ibuprofen or Vicodin pain relief for menstrual cramping. The newly created vaginal suppository, only available in California at the time of writing this article, has proven very effective in pain relief.
“Foria Relief contains both THC and CBD, the two key active cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis. Together they activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body via these specially formulated suppositories. Users have reported a significant decrease in the pain and discomfort often associated with menstruation. The cannabinoids directly impact the immune system and the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding smooth muscle tissues. THC positively affects the nerves and assists in blocking out pain while also allowing for more pleasant signals to be received by the brain. CBD works in the immune system by suppressing the mechanisms responsible for inflammation. CBD also slows down electrical signaling to muscles and allows them to relax, thereby reducing cramping.”
According to the manufacturer, the extract from pesticide-free cannabis flowers doesn’t make the recipient high.
“FORIA Relief has been carefully crafted using a delivery system intended to maximize the muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic “high”. Cannabis has a long, cross cultural history of use as a natural aide in easing symptoms associated with menstruation. Our intention is to share the powerful medicinal properties of this plant while utilizing modern extraction techniques to standardize purity and potency, thereby ensuring a safe and accessible experience for all women,” it states on their website.
Offering free shipping across the globe if a physician’s cannabis recommendation and ID is provided, and its availability in California, this new breakthrough could provide a less intrusive alternative than potent painkillers that are more often than not, prescribed.
