The new tampon-sized pill is made from a mixture of cannabidiol and cocoa butter infused with THC – the active ingredient in marijuana
A revolutionary capsule dubbed the world’s first weed-infused vagina pill has been released to help stop period pains.
The new tampon-sized pill is part of a bizarre modern trend of women placing items such as herb balls and Japanese vagina sticks into their private parts.
Made from a mixture of cannabidiol and cocoa butter infused with THC (the hallucinogenic chemical found in the class B drug), the ‘Foria Relief’ pill has been created to “maximize muscle relaxing and pain relieving.”
But its creators Foria say it will not get you high.
The company have previously released a cannabis infused lubrication product to “increase female sexual pleasure”.Founder Mathew Gerson said: “This plant medicine has a long, cross-cultural history of use as a natural aide in easing symptoms associated with menstruation.“The pelvic region contains more cannabinoid receptors than any other part of the body except for the brain.“So delivering these actives in a suppository format is a natural choice.”
Considering that side effects are reportedly minimal, the 84% of women who experience cramps and pains during their period may eagerly turn to this modern solution.
Unfortunately for women in the UK, the pills can only be bought if one lives in the 23 states of the US where marijuana has been legalized for medical purposes.
The tablets are priced at £30 for four capsules and require the buyer to have a medical marijuana card.
It is unlikely that the pain relief solution will reach British shores any time soon as the UK government continues to ignore the supposed medicinal benefits of marijuana.
A petition with over 200,000 signatures called on the government to legalize marijuana last year.
The petition was slammed in parliamentary debate and prompted the government to label the use of cannabis as “a significant public health issue.”
