Finally! Some relief!

Thanks to hard-working weed scientists, pot is in an array of useable products. Massage oil, lip balm, sexy-time lube — it's a great time to be alive. 

As an added bonus, ladies that have "fallen to the Communists" can now find cramp relief via the Devil's lettuce too. Get ready for the weed-laced tampon:

Yes, it's totally real and already available for purchase. 

Each serving contains 60mg of THC and 10mg of CBD, the vaginal suppository format helps deliver the medicine directly to where it is needed most.

Artist's rendering. 

But does it work? We've ordered samples and will let everyone know, but in the meantime, other journalists have already taken the weed-soaked cotton pony for a ride around the stables. Sophie Saint-Thomas for Racked says:

I put on some relaxing instrumental music and chilled out for the 20 minutes suggested in the Foria pamphlet, letting the cannabis do its work. Not only did my cramps ease up, but I felt good. Really good. There was no heady high, but I felt serene. It was like if Ativan made a baby with Tylenol, except I hadn’t thrust any nasty pharmaceuticals into my vag; just cannabis and cocoa butter.

The next day my period ravaged on and, having my own anecdotal results that the suppository wouldn’t totally fuck up my day, I tried it earlier on. Except this time, I skipped the meditation and mood music, tapping away at my keyboard, creating checklists and brainstorming pitches as the cannabis did its magic. My cramps lightened, but without the chilled out exterior vibes, I felt none of the same calm and light high that had mellowed me out the previous evening.

And writer Mish Way shared her experience using it on Broadly:

When my cramps arrived a week later, I popped in a Relief and lay flat with a pillow elevating my butt, just as instructed. The strange thing about the original spray product, Foria Pleasure, is that using it in or on your vulva does not have the psychotropic effects that it does when ingested orally. (However, Gerson told me that some users, when they used Foria Pleasure for anal sex, did report feeling stoned.) The same is true for Foria Relief; I took the vaginal suppositories about an hour before an interview, confident that only my uterus would be high and happy.

Within 20 minutes, my cramps totally disappeared. Unlike recent “natural” products like “herbal detox pearls” (meant to “cleanse” your uterus), Foria consists of just three ingredients—cocoa butter, THC and CBD—all of which I have ingested for many years with no major problems. I was not surprised at how well the suppository worked. What I was surprised about was the longevity. Midol will wear off after about half a work day, and during most periods I’ll pop six a day. But one Foria suppository did its job well into my evening.

Well, we're sold. Next time the red tide rises, cannabis tampons have a solution.
