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.


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

@Peak Love & Sex: Weed & The Deed

Marijuana in All Forms is the

Latest Prescription for Sexual Healing

by Amanda Green

The storied (if technically illegal) practice of smoking up and getting down has moved into the mainstream. Now legal in Alaska, Colorado, D.C., Oregon, and Washington, marijuana has fascinating effects on women, men and sex. 

WOMEN: We may be more sensitive to the pain-relieving effects of cannabis - but we develop a tolerance more quickly. (Drug and Alcohol Dependence)

COUPLES: The couple who tokes together is less likely to get into physical altercations. (Psychology of Addictive Behaviors)

LUBE: THC-infused lube Foria aims to increase sensitivity and relaxation (and maybe help with multiple orgasms?) without actually getting users high. But it can't be used with latex condoms, as the oil can cause latex to break down.

Does a high Vagina make Sex Better? We find out with Foria Cannabis-infused Personal Lube.

For those who love cannabis and love sex, the thought of combining the two is pretty titillating.

With all the excitement of a commercially available cannabis sex oil, is the excitement true or is it hype?

For the enticing product review, I gave three samples to three enthusiastic women to test solo and with their partners for 10 days. Then, the women shared their opinions, the scope of their experiences and the quality of the product as measured by answering an extensive review. (To assure confidentiality, their names have been changed to Goddess names, Venus, Athena and Hera!)

Venus shared the waiting time before sex was different for her too, but it heightened the anticipation.
“One night I applied it, walked out into the living room and giving my best bedroom eyes, I looked at my lover and said, ‘I’m marinating.’
"It was really quite hysterical and exciting. After that it was most difficult to wait but we did! That’s when I took a bong rip and got super high. F*ck yeah."
“While marinating, I was all kinds of tingly. I wanted to see if I could get high through my vagina. I think I did, but it was pretty mild.”
Overall, “our bodies were looser and more relaxed. I recall having a screaming orgasm that time.”
Athena said, “I think my pussy did feel high, if that’s possible! She felt very soft, warm, tingly and relaxed. Same with my partner—he didn’t feel high after oral. I definitely felt heightened sensations in both my clitoris and inside my vagina—very subtle but noticeable.
"I felt more engorged in both areas with slight tingling sensation. My partner said he thought my vagina felt tighter, caressed him more fully when he was inside me.” 

Two goddess reviewers were very excited by Foria and one thinks it’s mostly hype.

How Legal Weed Could Change the Future of Sex

Smokin' Romance by Taryn Hillin | Feb 9, 2015 | Fusion Network

Weed’s got a dirty little secret: It holds the power to transform our sex lives.

Is pot really a love drug?
Many, many years before “potheads” and “munchies” were a thing, pleasure-seekers in ancient India used cannabis (known as “bhang”) in tantric sex. Nineteenth-century Persian prostitutes were also well-known users of ganja, and in 1930s Russia, young brides were advised to partake on their wedding night as a way to make having sex for the first time more pleasurable (read: less uncomfortable).
What’s the science behind it?
Cannabis contains chemical compounds called cannabinoids, the most active and famous being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), explained Dustin Sulak, an osteopathic physician in Maine who lectures on medical marijuana nationally. And humans have built-in receptors for cannabinoids nearly everywhere: our brain, nervous system, and yes, sexual organs.
“I’m a sexologist, I help couples try to reconnect sexually,” he told Fusion. “Most people turn to alcohol to connect, but marijuana slows you down. You can sit and look at each other, enjoy each other’s bodies. When it comes to pot, it’s all about touching and feeling.”
What does all this look like in practice? ;)
Marijuana doesn’t just enable some people to have sex, but improves on sex itself, said San Diego-based sexologist Nick Karras, famous for his book Petals. Karras and his colleague Kami Lennox are studying marijuana’s effects in the bedroom, based on testimonials they’re collecting from real-life users. He regularly recommends cannabis to his own clients.
Karras echoed this sentiment: “Pot reacts differently in different people,” he said. “Strain is very important, dosage is more important, and also intention—getting into that mindful place where you can connect with your partner.”
What’s next?
Of course, the future of sex and weed relies on the continued legalization of marijuana—and the education, outreach, and research that will follow.
In the meantime, if you live in a state where pot is legal, proceed with caution. And a little Barry White.


Time to Get Intimate

"Lucky for us, Foria arrived in Colorado!" -Fox & Nug

"Encouraging provocative and enlightening conversations about cannabis, health, humanity, mother nature, and the human spirit."
Foria Colorado Product Review | January Issue 2015

"A delicate mist arouses my interest it felt like silk running down my body. This was already a completely different experience from the glycerin based lubes I’m more familiar with.
"I can feel everything, every last inch of him , and I feel deeply relaxed."
"I reach multiple orgasms, each one a unique and completely euphoric climax. Each one lasting several moments, followed by deep relaxation and more euphoria. He keeps up, he’s absolutely loving it, and we both finish on the highest note."
"Laying there, completely and utterly satisfied, I realized that I had been so involved in the experience I didn’t even stop to think about crafting my review, I crawlback on top of him and say, ‘But wait! How does it feel for you?’
He smiles and says, 'Like paradise.'"
“…the beginning of a stoney sexual revolution, I truly believe Foria is a cannabis infused lube worth experimenting with in this lifetime. And I foresee that you will love Foria enough to make it a staple in your stash box too!”

I Tried That Cannabis Lube and Got High as a Horny Kite / Cosmopolitan Magazine

Sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. Kind of.

By  | Twitter: @Cosmopolitan @ForiaPleasure

Let's get this out of the way first: As someone who likes to live life as chill as possible, I do enjoy partaking in marijuana from time to time. It's legal where I live and also, I find it enhances the taste of Cheetos to a level that makes them otherworldly. Like, seriously, if everyone were high all the time, three-star Michelin restaurants would only serve Yoohoo and snacks covered in bright orange powdered cheeze.

MY POINT IS THIS:  When I heard about Foria, a new lube that is infused with pot, I was all,"WTF is wrong with people?" and also, "When can I try this?" Foria promises to "bring to your fingertips the power of ancient plant medicine to inspire deep healing and unlock profound pleasures." Sounds good to me! Let's get high and then get freaky. Or just eat a bunch of snacks and go to sleep. Whatevs.

The lube: Foria.

The location: My bedroom. I'm already putting marijuana up my junk; no need to spice it up in any other way.

The music: "How High" by Redman and Method Man because I just find that song sexy, ya know?

The mood: Adventurous!

The act: As Foria advises, the lube should be applied before you are naturally lubricated. Sorry to get all graphic on you but you are reading a Cosmo sex tip about weed lube, so I think it's safe to assume we're all friends here. It comes in a spray bottle, which is difficult to operate upside down, so I applied it with my fingers while I was still dry. I'm not gonna lie, it was ... odd and about as sexy as a pap smear. Not a great start.

I did this and then waited about 15 minutes before getting hot and heavy with my dude. In this time, that Foria hit me and it hit me hard, in the absolutely most delicious way. I was super relaxed and also super ready to go due to the fact that I was feeling so damn good! This was a mellow high that felt like a warm and very sexual hug, which is also what I was doing at the moment. We did it, and it was fun as hell, and I wanted to try it again.

Of course, I had to ask myself: "Could I get addicted to putting weed up my vagina?" and the answer is, yes. Yes, I could. But the other thing is, it was such a unique sensation that I don't think I'd want that every time I had sex. It's nice to feel spacey and out of your mind when you're doing it, but it's also nice to be fully present and in control. This is something that I'd only do with someone I felt fully comfortable getting weird with, and then only on special occasions. But during those times? Hell yes; it was a blast to be both completely relaxed and gorgeously sensuous and I can't believe I typed that and I hope my mom never reads this.

The aftermath: Oh my goodness, I ate so many snacks. There are no snacks left on this planet because I consumed them.
