Just How Well Does Weed Work for Period Pain?

For the sake of all the ladies, MERRY JANE puts Foria’s Relief product to the test.

With the bombshell announcement of Foria Relief, a line of special weed-infused suppositories to relieve women’s menstrual pain, came one resounding question: DOES IT WORK?!

I personally received a handful of texts from my non-partaking girlfriends, who saw the “Trending Topic” on Facebook and had to know if putting weed in your vagina was a real, viable treatment for cramps and other pains associated with Aunt Flo’s monthly visit.

If this were widely proven to be an effective treatment, then dozens of girls I know would purchase them, who would never smoke cannabis or try an edible.

A couple of quick emails to the ladies at Foria got a package into my possession, so I could bring the rest of you ladies valuable information from the front lines.

Like many women, I have utilized medical cannabis for menstrual cramps and pain for years. It’s not surprising that Foria, the inventors of the first direct-to-market cannabis-infused pleasure lube for women, would create such a novel application that delivers the medicine within the body, directly to where it’s needed most.

The instructions for the product advise you to lay on your back and relax for 15 minutes or more after application. Cannabis products are constantly reinforcing knowing one’s self and enhancing the mind-body connection for greater healing potential. While these products are effective no matter what, it’s amazing what following the instructions—and actually relaxing into the feeling—can accomplish.

Let’s look at the facts behind Foria Relief:

I can personally attest to the efficacy of this product for period pain, and I even experienced a pleasant side effect, which other ladies have also reported.

Back in high school, I injured my back around the L5 vertebrae, right above the pelvis. Because of this I battle daily pain in my pelvic region and lower back, oftentimes even my sciatic nerve, shooting down my legs. The Foria Relief product is so potent that it provides soothing relief to all of these areas.

In talking with other women who have tried the product, many have shared with me that it helps them too with Sciatica and back pain, so it’s definitely not a “just for periods” product!

Foria is an amazing company making waves in the cannabis space by completely rethinking the way that many women face everyday sexual health issues.

Though they were one of the first to manufacture such products, they certainly won’t be the last; Whoopi & Maya is launching soon in California and beyond.

Ladies—let’s thank these outstanding and innovative women by spreading the word, and of course, gifting all of our loved ones these products. “Cannabis for cramps” is our reward for being so strong all these years.
