There’s mounting evidence linking common painkillers like ibuprofen to serious health complications, especially when taken regularly. Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical industry is so powerful that these over-the-counter products still have FDA approval despite the documented side effects they trigger.
On the other hand, the world has been hearing a lot about more natural and safer approach to treatment of common health issues, which also includes cannabis for medical use.
A number of states have already legalized this healing herb, making way for specialized medicinal marijuana products, such as marijuana-based products for PMS relief.
Cannabis Pain Relief
A vaginal suppository called Foria Relief is one of the most demanded products on the market at present. This marijuana-based product provides optimal muscle relaxation and pain relief minus the psychotropic “high”effect. The composition of the product consists of organic fair trade cocoa butter and Distilled THC oil – CBD isolate from organically grown hemp.
It’s important to note that all products from the company are tested for potency, pesticides, and residual solvents and microbials during the production process. Also, the products are free of preservative.
Foria Relief competes with popular products like Vicodin, Midol, and Ibuprofen.
The suppositories reduce inflammation and influence the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding smooth muscle tissues to block pain signals and thus relieve cramps owing to THC and CBD – both active cannabinoids.
According to Dr. Berman, “when a medicine is delivered through the mucosa of the vagina, rather than orally or [as] a topical treatment, it is directly absorbed into the bloodstream.”
The FDA hasn’t yet approved of this product although a vast majority of customers have benefited greatly from its medicinal properties.
The success of this product has only made way for a whole range of other marijuana-based products including raw sipping chocolates, topical rubs, tinctures, and bath soaks that ease period cramps.
