Relief is here, ladies! Introducing Foria Relief, the first ever vaginal suppository designed to cure menstrual cramps and other PMS symptoms. Created by Matthew Gerson, Foria Relief has been carefully crafted to maximise muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without a psychotropic effect. Well, there had to be some downside, right?
Each serving contains a specially formulated blend of THC (cannabis’ psychoactive element) and CBD (its healing element) which are known to relax muscles and release tension and cramping in the body. Some women have reported back that the tampon’s effects included: relaxation, back pain relief and reduced anxiety.
Sounds amazing, right? Well don’t start blazin’ your lady parts just yet. Unfortunately, Foria Relief doesn’t do the job of a regular tampon, meaning you have to wear both at once. BUT– Gerson and his team are currently running tests to see if the insert can be used as a form of pain relief during childbirth, which is an exciting prospect to those women who aren’t down with childbirth drugs.
