Foria Follows Award-Winning Sex Lube with a Natural Herbal Pain Reliever
By Steve Elliott
Foria on Monday launched what it calls the world’s first cannabis-infused vaginal suppository, formulated as a natural herbal remedy to soothe monthly menstrual discomfort. “Foria Relief” contains both THC and CBD, but — unlike many other cannabis products — is non-psychoactive because of the delivery-format, according to the company.
Foria Relief suppositories are made from organic cocoa butter blended with CO2-extracted cannabis oil and a CBD isolate, according to a company press release. Each suppository delivers approximately 60 mg THC and 10 mg CBD.
CBD is a formerly-obscure cannabinoid that has been shown to diminish pain signaling and muscle cramping. CBD is exploding in popular awareness as both medical marijuana patients and Big Pharma companies discover numerous other benefits.
Foria Relief is the first vaginal suppository designed specifically for menstrual discomfort, according to the company. "Till now, women had few options to address menstrual discomfort, primarily systemic pain-relievers such as Ibuprofen or herbal teas (since the only other vaginal suppository products have been yeast medications or birth control)," reads a prepared statement from Foria.
