Looking for relief from your period cramps? You can now buy weed to help aid the crucial pain of cramps. But this kind of weed you don’t smoke. Foria is a weed suppository that you stick in the you-know-where for relief, without getting you high. The vaginal insert contains 60mg of THC and 10mg of CB.
According to the company’s website, “Users have reported a significant decrease in the pain and discomfort often associated with menstruation. The cannabinoids directly impact the immune system and the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding smooth muscle tissues. THC positively affects the nerves and assists in blocking out pain while also allowing for more pleasant signals to be received by the brain.”
The unorthodox method of subduing PMS isn’t sitting well with medical professionals, especially Jen Gunter, OB-GYN and pain medicine physician. Gunter, told BuzzFeed:
“[Foria] is completely untested with zero studies and the claims that are being made from the website aren’t really supported in basic science.”
She continued: “If it’s getting into your bloodstream there is a risk of it making you high. Period. So either your medicine is completely ineffective, or it’s getting into your bloodstream and then there is a risk that it will get you high.”
The period weed is currently only available in California and Colorado, and you have to be 21 years old or older to purchase.
