Period relief

2 women test out ‘weed tampon’ that claims to relieve period cramps

By WITW Staff on October 28, 2016

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.
