Since the beginning of time (I'm guessing), women have been searching for the best way to relieve pain during “that time of the month.”

Meanwhile, people keep coming up with new ways (or at least try) to incorporate medicinal marijuana into everyday life.

The latest product to hit the market is a tampon called Foria Relief, which contains two of the main ingredients in marijuana — THC oil and CBD — along with organic cocoa butter to assist with pain relief and instant muscle relaxation.

According to Foria, those who have used the product have reported a significant decrease in the pain and discomfort associated with menstruation. It has been carefully crafted using a delivery system intended to maximize the muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis, without creating the psychotropic “high.”

With marijuana’s long history of being a natural aide in reducing menstruation symptoms, Foria Relief intends to share its powerful medicinal properties, while utilizing modern extraction techniques to standardize purity and potency. Through this, it ensures a safe and accessible experience for all women.

Each tampon contains 60 mg of THC and 10 mg of CBD. Together, the two activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced to the body through these specially formulated suppositories.

These cannabinoids directly affect the immune system and the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding smooth muscle tissues. In addition, the THC assists in blocking out pain and allows more pleasant signals to be received by the brain, while CBD works in the immune system by suppressing the mechanisms responsible for inflammation.

“We are committed to promoting good health and well-being, especially with respect to people’s experience of intimacy, by creating products that enhance natural, sensual pleasures and provide relief from discomfort and pain,” says Foria’s mission statement. “Foria harnesses the complex powers of cannabis to create potent ‘therapeutic aphrodisiacs’ and healing products, thoughtfully designed for both women and men.”
