'Marijuana Tampon' Might Be the End of Your Period Cramps

Medical Marijuana Posted May 1 2016

Marijuana use for pain management is nothing new at this point, but most people may not be aware of the historical use of cannabis for menstrual cramps and even chilbirth. Historical texts from allover the world have been found to include the use of cannabis to ease migraines, uterine pain, and even prevent miscarriage. Even Queen Victoria was prescribed cannabis by her doctor during her monthly mensrtual cycle. Science and medicine have come a long way since these methods, but the results are still indisputable. The medical marijuana company, Foria Relief, now sells a cannabis suppository that can be used alongside a tampon to treat menstrual pains. At $44 for a pack of 4, the suppositories are only available for patients in California with a doctor's note. 

“I have endometriosis that returned after having a partial hysterectomy,” one user wrote on social media. “When I have flare ups, besides excruciating pain, I look pregnant and the inflammation affects my bladder. Foria is one of the very few things that brings me relief! You should share more of its uses."

Another reads, “This is potent medicine and the most healing way I have ever used cannabis. Thank you for the gift of medicine!”
