Natural remedies have been growing in popularity over the past years. This is not just a passing trend, because people are becoming more and more aware of the harmful side effects of chemical laden medications Big Pharma and other pharmaceutical companies produce.
Cannabis is one of those natural remedies that have been getting a lot of attention lately due to their strong medicinal properties. The Foria Relief Company has come up with a new cannabis product – a vaginal suppository, which is supposed to relieve menstrual cramps better than Vicodin, Midol, and Ibuprofen. It’s based on aromatic cocoa butter.
This product is aimed at reducing pain and relaxing the muscles. The psychotropic effect (feeling high) of cannabis has also been considered and cancelled out.
Today, cannabis is increasingly being used as a natural alternative to reducing menstrual symptoms, such as pelvic pain and cramping. The company aims at using modern extracting methods for potency and purity standardization, with the purpose of creating a safe product which can be used by all women. The production process starts with the extraction of cannabis flowers which are not laden with pesticides. The active ingredients in these flowers are then combined with 60mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and 10mg of cannabidiol (CBD). According to the manufacturer, this can’t make the user feel “high”.
This vaginal suppository contains CBD and THC, both of which are active cannabinoid compounds. When these are introduced in the body, specific cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic area are triggered.
As reported by users, this product is extremely effective in relieving menstrual pain and discomfort. Namely, the active compounds of cannabis have direct impact on the nerve endings in the uterus, cervix, ovaries and the muscles surrounding these organs. In other words, THC blocks the pain and sends positive signals to the brain, while CBD positively affects the mechanisms that trigger inflammation, relieve cramps and reduce muscle spasms.
It seems that the development of such a medicine is completely reasonable, because most of the cannabinoid receptors in the body are located in the pelvic area. Cannabis provides a wide range of benefits as it can activate the endocannabinoid system in the body.
In the words of one user of this product, it immediately relaxed her muscle spasms and stopped the pain felt in the midsection.
Although it’s gaining popularity among women, this medicine still hasn’t been approved by the FDA. At the moment it’s only available in California, even though it’s expected to be more widely popularized once cannabis is legalized.
In addition, the company doesn’t stop here in their use of cannabis for production of new drugs. Thus, they’ve created the Foria Pleasure, sensual enhancement oil which provides some of the aphrodisiac properties of cannabis.
Though the powerful medicinal properties of Foria Relief have been confirmed by all its users, it’s still recommended to consult a doctor before use.
