Vaginal marijuana for menstrual cramps: the grass isn’t always greener

Look what the amazing Dr. Jen Gunter has to share again!

The idea of marijuana via vaginal suppository is quite interesting. At times, I’m sure I would have been very desperate to try such a thing, but today is the first I’ve ever heard of this … plus I don’t live in a state that allows medical marijuana.

Anyway, if anyone tries or has tried this, please let me know — I’d really like to know how well it worked! But it’s not like I’m going to go get a uterus transplant so I can try it myself! My dsymenorrhea (painful periods) are a thing of the past — and it was all done legally!

foria-menstrual-reliefForia wants you to know they are selling vaginal suppositories of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol)called Fiora Relief for menstrual cramps. Each suppository contains 60 mg of THC and 10 mg of CBD.

Foria claims they can treat the pain of menstrual cramps and endometriosis. Is this possible?

THC and cannabidiol (CBD) are compounds found in marijuana. The psychoactive (i.e. high) from marijuana is believed to be due to the THC, which can relaxmuscles and also causeeuphoria and sedation as well as anxiety, paranoia, and dysphoria. Cannabidiolcan stimulate receptors in the brain, reproductive, endocrine (hormone), gastrointestinal, and vascular systems.Some research suggestsCBD may attenuate THC-induced tachycardia,euphoria, and anxiety (i.e. the bad parts of a high), but it’s not clear if that is really the case clinically. We have a lot to learn about these receptors and their role in pain and inflammation. Basically, we don’t know what…

  1. This is really interesting. Even though medicinal marijuana is legal in my province I wonder how many physicians would not only know about this but be willing to prescribe it. Even here where it is legal most physicians still push the pharmaceuticals. Personally, I would not be willing to ever go back to having a uterus to find out!

  2. Its not that I’m not in favor of getting rid of cramps. I just think some Advil or Vicodin is a better plan. I feel like maybe sticking it up the twat might be a step too far.

    A discrete patch I can wear to make the workday go a bit fast would be nice. But I just no longer care to stick anything up my twat that isn’t going to bring about a cataclysm of some sort. (you like that? – cataclysm – its a trashy romance novel word for…another thing – because I’m discrete. Really. I AM.)

    • Yeah, putting something up the hoo haw doesn’t sound appealing especially if it were competing with a tampon.

      Love your idea about a patch … and on THAT subject my period WAS so bad that many years ago I was on the a Fentanyl Patch for 72 hours during my menses. BUT the patch was so strong that while it relieved my pain completely it also erased my mind and I would lose 3 days of life every month … not remembering anything and for me that wasn’t the way I wanted to continue to live.
