Oh no, it’s that time of the month again! Cramps, bloating, ravishing appetite, and mood swings. Oh boy, let the “fun” begin — NOT! This is not something that any woman looks forward to… and of course, a woman’s period always seems to start at the most inopportune time. It’s part of Murphy’s law that anything that can go wrong will indeed go wrong!
According to an article in the July 2016 issue of Woman’s Day Magazine, there is a new product on the market called “Foria Relief” which is also dubbed, “The Weed Tampon.” The ingredients are carbon dioxide extracted cannabis oil, organic cocoa butter, and a cannabidiol (CBD) isolate. Each suppository contains 10mg of CBD and 60mg of THC. Please note that there is not enough THC to get a woman really high but does contain more than trace amounts of THC, unlike the CBD oils we sell which have virtually no THC. A few reviewers of Foria Relief do report feeling a “buzz.”
These CBD oil suppositories are intended to make direct contact with affected areas and reduce, or even stop completely, the discomfort of a bad period cycle so many woman dread on a monthly basis. Will it be a bad month or a good month? Even on good months, many women experience so much pain and mood swings, they’d rather hide from the world for a day or two (at least) if at all possible. CBC oil can activate a woman’s cannabinoid receptors in her pelvic region, thereby reducing, or even eliminating, the uncomfortable feelings in her vagina, cervix, uterus, and ovaries — at least that’s what has been reported by many happy relieved women who try it.
It’s great that there are starting to be commercial products that are drawing attention to the fact that CBD oil can eliminate pain. However, you can use the CBD oil you have on hand from us to accomplish the same thing. First, you could create CBD suppositories yourself using gelatin capsules you can get from the drug store or most department stores. A simpler method though would be to apply some CBD oil to the end of a tampon and insert it as you normally would to control flow. You will only need to do this once every day or two during your period because the local effect is very long lasting. Vaping or using drops below the tongue can also help alleviate the mood swings and other symptoms associated with a woman’s period. In this way, you really don’t need to buy a separate product for using CBD oil to help ease menstrual symptoms.
Although the Foria Relief product contains THC, you do not need THC in order to activate cannabinoid receptors in your pelvic region. In fact, the full spectrum oils we sell contain several other cannabinoids, as well as terpenes, that will work synergistically to help you eliminate these monthly symptoms with absolutely no psychotropic effect whatsoever. This way, you can continue working, driving, or doing whatever other activity you want.
This is not only good news for women but for men too. Most men hate seeing their female loved ones suffer through painful menstrual cramps and not be able to offer much help. Most men are by nature problem solvers after all and they usually have a natural urge to help solve the problem. Now, there is a natural solution men can suggest to their female loved ones. Use CBD oil to soothe menstrual cramps and other symptoms associated with a woman’s period like bloating and irritability.
