Last week, a California-based business called Foria released a vaginal suppository called Foria Relief to its customers that contains a mix of tetrahydrocannabinol which is also known as THC, cannibidiol which is also called CBD, and cocoa butter.
It is designed to be inserted in a similar manner as a tampon, where it dissolves relatively quickly into the nerve-rich, cannabinoid receptor-filled pelvic region.
The pearl-shaped suppository interacts with the nerve-endings in the uterus, ovaries and cervix. It is said to ease the discomfort that women experience during menstruation.
THC helps to block feelings of pain, instead sending more pleasurable sensations to the brain. CBD works with the body’s immune system to both reduce inflammation and relax cramping muscles.
