Weed-infused 'female suppositories' are a thing now


You can now add marijuana-infused "female suppositories" to your list of things to comfort you during that time of the month, right there along with the chocolates and the rom-coms.

FORIA is a company that creates cannabis products to enhance one's health and happiness.

"Bring to your fingertips the power of ancient plant medicine to activate deep healing and unlock profound pleasures," their site states.

Currently, the company is garnering attention for "FORIA Relief," a marijuana-infused female suppository.

While they aren't tampons, FORIA Relief suppositories can be inserted in the same way.

"FORIA Relief has been carefully crafted using a delivery system intended to maximize the muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic 'high,'" the product description explains.

Each "serving" contains 60mg of THC. According to The Cannabist, typical doses of marijuana in edibles clock in at about 10mg.

However, the company says, "The majority of users do not report experiencing a psychoactive high when taking Foria Relief."

While the suppositories may not bring you the good time that other marijuana products do, they do have one major benefit: pain relief.

In terms of usage, FORIA tells Mashable in an email, "Relief is formulated to release the medicinal properties as close to the site of pain and cramping as possible. It can be inserted vaginally to relieve cramps in the womb area. It can also be inserted rectally for other forms of pain and discomfort in the body, such as the back and hip area."

The company's website says their statements haven't been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and their information comes from patients' reported experiences, with limited scientific research available.

One box — which contains a set of four suppositories — will set you back $44, though the site's testimonials for its products seem to make the high price worth it.

The only bummer? Like for any other marijuana product, the THC will seen in drug tests.

While FORIA Relief can only be ordered in states where marijuana is available for lawful purchase, it gives cramp-hating women everywhere a reason to hope for legalization.
