A Cramp-Destroying Weed Tampon Just Hit the Market
Weed can cure all kinds of pain — if you’re willing to smoke it.
But for some of us, getting high can also result in drowsiness, unstoppable giggles, that weird feeling like you’re peeing your pants when you’re really not, and just generally acting a fool in public. This makes it not worth the trouble if you’re just trying to treat minor aches and pains.
But a company called Foria has just created the single most beautiful invention for ending period cramps: a weed tampon!
Technically it’s a THC-tinged “relief suppository.” And technically you’re not allowed to buy it unless you’re in California or Colorado. But isn’t it nice to know it exists? And if you live in a liberal-leaning state, you’ll probably be able to test-drive one in this lifetime?
Sophie Saint-Thomas of Racked got her hands on a pack and did the Lord’s work, testing them out to report back to us all. Here’s what she found:
I put on some relaxing instrumental music and chilled out for the 20 minutes suggested in the Foria pamphlet, letting the cannabis do its work. Not only did my cramps ease up, but I felt good. Really good. There was no heady high, but I felt serene. It was like if Ativan made a baby with Tylenol, except I hadn’t thrust any nasty pharmaceuticals into my vag; just cannabis and cocoa butter.
Ummm, sign us up.
And that warm stoned feeling isn’t present if you want to use a suppository and go about your usual daily business. Saint-Thomas says she also tried a suppository at work and found that she didn’t have as much of a high, but the pain still subsided. All in all, it looks like this product is effective and probably safer than a typical painkiller since it’s more natural.
BRB, moving to California.
