I Tried 5 Alternative Period Cramp Cures and Here's What Actually Worked

Five months, five methods, no ibuprofen. 

 By Hannah Smothers | Dec 01, 2016

"Foria is a newish company that’s either totally outrageous or doing the Lord’s work, depending on how you want to look at it."

According to a report from CNN, pain management is the most commonly prescribed use for medical marijuana in the United States. Foria's website says their little butter-encased suppository works to "directly impact the immune system and the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding smooth muscle tissues." Or in other words, it targets all the parts of you that hurt while you're on your period and tries to relax them.

...

The best instruction, though, was the one that said I should lie down for a while and relax. After cultivating my perfect vagina-weed environment, I messaged my editor, “ok it’s weed time,” and shoved the suppository into my vagina, with the help of a tampon applicator.

...

The accompanying instructions told me I shouldn’t necessarily feel high. But let me tell you. I felt high. Not, like, I-can’t-perform-my-job-anymore-today high, but definitely things-are-funny!!!! high. I ate my cookie and then also ate approximately 45 Annie’s white cheddar bunnies. And then also I ordered a sandwich. But! I totally felt no pain. My cramps, which had been firing away at full blast, subsided as my weed butter melted in my vagina.

In short, I loved these little THC butter bullets. Not quite enough to move to California (I don’t trust a state with that much sunshine), but definitely enough to hoard my remaining three for days when my cramps are truly awful.

MY RATING:

Four "bowing deeply" emojis, because I was truly in awe of this weed butter vagina experience.

NY Times Features FORIA Relief Review

In a video for Buzzfeed, two women tried out the “weed tampon,” a new cannabis-based vaginal suppository aimed at relieving period cramps. Produced by Foria, a company known for its production of cannabis-based “therapeutic aphrodisiacs and healing products,” the Foria Relief suppositories are meant to serve as an alternative to painkillers by functioning as a muscle relaxant and pain reliever.

In the video, the women said that their main concern was that the TCH in the suppository would cause the same effects as it would if they smoked or ate it. Both women reported, however, that they felt clear-headed during the experience, and that they would recommend it to others. Evidently, it’s the perfect compliment to Whoopi Goldberg’s new line of marijuana-based period relief remedies.

Watch the video below.

BuzzFeed Video Review of FORIA Relief "Women Try 'Weed Tampons' For Period Cramps

"The things we have in our medicine cabinets are dangerous and we don't think of them as drugs.
BUT THEY ARE! They're drugs!"

 

"FORIA Relief is a cannabis-based product in the form of a vaginal suppository that dissolves with the heat of your body."

HELLOGIGGLES: Cannabis-Infused Female Suppositories aka "Marijuana tampons" are here and they could be SUPER effective

Marijuana tampons, Foria, Female Suppositories, Cannabis for Women

 

Created by Foria, the cannabis vaginal suppositories seek to take down cramps associated with periods. The handy little “tampons” were developed with our worst period moments in mind, and we’re feeling pretty grateful. One gynecologist told Racked that using cannabis for periods isn’t unheard of. According to Morton Barke, M.D., a retired gynecologist and medical director of a California medical marijuana evaluation center,

“We know that cannabis does help pain. We do see a lot of patients with dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea is painful menstrual periods. It’s a fantastic modality to help patients.” - Sounds pretty darn good to us.

So what’s the science behind their products? ... They’re particular about their cannabis. Foria grows their cannabis in Northern California without the use of harmful pesticides. Which is basically one giant yay.

Their product contains THC and CBD. For those of us who aren’t super up-to-date on the inner workings of weed, the two key active cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis are THC and CBD. The cannabinoids in Foria products interact with the nerves and muscles that cause cramps, encouraging less painful periods. THC in the tampons helps take down pain, while encouraging ~good vibes~ in the brain, while CBD encourages muscles and nerves to chill TF out.

So far, people are loving these tampons. Folks who have tried Foria since they released the suppositories this past January have said they have less hardcore cramps as a result of the product. So that’s fantastic news. 

Long story short? It just might be time to say goodbye to writhing around in pain while crying over your favorite rom coms, and, TBH, we can’t complain. As much as we ~love~ indulging in ice cream seven days out of every month, we’d much rather not be in total and complete agony.

When you’ve got a case of excruciating PMS cramps, you’d pretty much do anything to stop the pain. Now there’s an innovative solution out on the market — even if it might not be legal in every state.

Here’s the good news: This type of marijuana use isn’t for stoners. A new innovative company called Foria, which is known for cannabis-infused products like lubricants, has just released the “weed tampon.”

It’s the first to hit the market dedicated to treating menstrual cramps, but take note that it’s actually a suppository rather than an absorbent feminine hygiene product.

When it comes to organic sources of pain relief, marijuana is nothing new. It’s used to help with many ailments, including nausea and muscle pain. And with legalization sweeping across U.S. states and its many medical uses — from stopping seizures to treating cancer patients — this bud has gained legitimacy in the health and wellness industry.

The product, Foria Relief, is created “using a delivery system intended to maximize the muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic ‘high,’” says the company’s website.

The cannabis suppositories are made with organic cocoa butter, THC oil and CBD isolate. Some women have reported that it smells like cookie dough or cookie butter. And it keeps getting better: For you ladies that aren’t interested in getting all squinty-eyed, this product can still work for you because the THC won’t make you high.

Here’s how it works: The capsule is blended with a 6-to-1 ratio of THC oil (approximately 60 grams — twice as much as the average joint) to CBD isolate. The THC targets the nerves to block out the pain, while CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, helping relieve muscle spasms.

The company says that the combination of THC and CBD used in the vaginal suppositories are specifically designed to “activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body.”

In short, marijuana’s magical ingredients go straight to where they’re needed.

Thus far, the Food and Drug Administration has neither approved the product nor ran it through clinical trials, but Foria is marketing it as completely safe and user-friendly — claiming the cannabis is grown without pesticides and that the product is made with no harmful contaminants.

The suppositories are currently only available in California and do not require a medical-marijuana card (although they do require a physician’s letter). Check back with the site from time to time to see if it expands into other states.

So far, the product has a four-star rating on its site along with highly positive reviews. Some women have noted relief from cramps within only 20 minutes. There is even talk about it being used as an aid in childbirth.

BUST MAGAZINE: These New Marijuana Inserts for Women Could Be The Answer To Your Period Prayers

BUST MAGAZINE
BY GABRIELLE DIEKHOFF IN LIVING

Once a month, I live through literal hell for seven to nine days straight. My uterus is tied in knots and wrung out by the invisible fists of the devil himself. My soul touches the void. I pound ibuprofen and Tylenol by the handful for little to no relief. Eventually, I fantasize about removing my uterus all together because I see no other solutions in sight. What a life that would be, devoid of insufferable, never-ending menstrual cramps. Rainbows and butterflies and the ability to venture out into the world and skip down the street period-pain-free, instead of writhing and whining in my bed and ordering an XL, grease-soaked pizza to my door (which only ends up making me feel worse). Ah, the joys of owning a uterus.


If your menstrual experiences mirror mine, first of all, I’m so sorry, I feel you. Second of all, hold up – there could be a sliver of hope for us yet. Foria, a company known for its cannabis-infused products (including their well-renowned weed lube), has just released an ingenious and potentially life-changing product: marijuana-infused ‘tampons.’ I use the word ‘tampon’ loosely, because they aren’t technically classified as such: rather, the brand refers to them as suppositories. But, they are inserted vaginally in a similar fashion, and they’re a period product, so might as well call ‘em tampons (I guess?).

Anyway, here’s the lowdown on how they work:


The suppositories, which come in packs of four, are made up of only three ingredients – fair trade cocoa butter, THC oil, and CBD isolate from organically grown hemp. You stick it in your vag and, supposedly, the cannabinoids cause the nerves in the uterus, cervix, and ovaries to block out pain and relax the constricted uterine muscles (aka, the source of that nasty cramping feeling). Unlike something you ingest orally, (Midol, Tylenol, et cetera), the suppositories attack the pain at the source. The vaginal walls absorb the natural medications directly into the bloodstream, providing imminent relief.

They aren’t yet FDA approved, and there is no factual research to prove their effectiveness, but users, like this writer from Broadly, have reported nearly immediate and long-lasting results. “Within 20 minutes, my cramps totally disappeared,” said Mish Barber Way. “I was not surprised at how well the suppository worked. What I was surprised about was the longevity. Midol will wear off after about half a work day, and during most periods I'll pop six a day. But one Foria suppository did its job well into my evening.”

Rad.

If, like me, you’re willing to try literally anything to relieve your menstrual misery, you can buy a pack of Foria Relief on their website.

Huffington Post: These Weed 'Tampons' Are Supposed To Relieve Period Cramps / Huffington Post

Read the original at Huffington Post Canada

Women who suffer from period cramps know there's nothing better than finding relief, especially when it's easy to use.

Foria, a company that focuses on cannabis oil and cannabis-infused products (like weed lube) has come out with relief suppositories (four for $44 USD) to help women deal with period cramps without making them 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," the site notes.

 

foriaEach suppository is made with fair trade cocoa butter, organic hemp and other oils.

And while medical marijuana is used by many to fight different types of pain, LiveScience notes smoking up for menstrual relief may not be the best idea.

The site argues there is very little evidence to back up the use of cannabis to help period cramps. Even studies that imply it's safe show little evidence that it actually works, says LiveScience.

At the moment, Foria's "tampons" haven't been confirmed by clinical testing or the FDA to be effective in actually relieving cramps.

“With exception of a study in the 1800s, I see no evidence in the medical literature that supports that use" of marijuana for menstrual cramps, Dr. Ranit Mishori, a professor of family medicine at Georgetown University School of Medicine, told LiveScience.

However, one Foria reviewer on Broadly notes after 20 minutes of using the relief suppositories, her period cramps "totally disappeared."

"What I was surprised about was the longevity. Midol will wear off after about half a work day, and during most periods I'll pop six a day. But one Foria suppository did its job well into my evening," writer Mish Barber Way reports. Reviews on the company's website also talk highly of the product.

Depending on the pain factor (if your periods are super painful, you may already be taking medication), other ways to relieve period cramps is improving your overall diet, using a heat pad or consuming more fish oil, Everyday Health reports.
