I can’t smoke weed without becoming a paranoid maniac, but it definitely seems to relieve some people’s pain. One way to achieve a less intense high and to heal some discomfort is to ingest it somewhere else. Not through your mouth, no. Lower.
A company called Foria is making all kinds of products that allow people to ingest that sweet mary jane without a vape, bong or paper. No one will even know from looking at you that you’re getting slowly high. Unless you get too high and announce to the room, “There’s a tampon in my vagina!”
They’re not exactly tampons, more like suppositories (and yes, they can be inserted in the back or the front). Each suppository contains THC and CBD, which chills out your muscles and your mind, but not as intensely as a fat blunt. They explain on their website, writing:
“Together they activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body via these specially formulated suppositories….The cannabinoids directly impact the immune system and the nerve endings of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and surrounding smooth muscle tissues. THC positively affects the nerves and assists in blocking out pain while also allowing for more pleasant signals to be received by the brain. CBD works in the immune system by suppressing the mechanisms responsible for inflammation. CBD also slows down electrical signaling to muscles and allows them to relax, thereby reducing cramping.”
Bad news is that the FDA has not officially approved any of Foria’s products (which also includes sensual massage oil raarrrrr) and their advertised effects are based on “patient's reported experiences and the limited scientific research currently available.”
The other bad news is that four suppositories cost $44.00. I’ll probably stick with Advil unless it’s an extremely special occasion.
