Colorado: Newly Available Cannabis Tampons
By Derrick Stanley
Women have a new alternative to treating painful menstrual cramps with Midol, Advil, and the like. There's a new remedy for cramps and it's cannabis tampons.
Designed by the company Foria, the "relief suppositories" made of cannabis "maximize the muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic ‘high.'”
The tampons are made with only three ingredients: cocoa butter, distilled THC Oil and CBD Isolate (99.99%) from organically-grown hemp. Foria explains on its website that CBD Isolate is one of “two key active cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis,” the other being THC.
Foria says their primary focus is on relieving pain, with an intention to “share the powerful medicinal properties of this plant while utilizing modern extraction techniques to standardize purity and potency.” Creating a tampon, they say, instead of a pill, helps “deliver the medicine directly to where it is needed most.”
Unfortunately, the tampons are only available for residents of Colorado with a medical marijuana card. Fiora's site site says that it is working hard “to make Foria available wherever cannabis infused products are available by state law.”
