the swelling did go down and my breast did turn back to its normal state.
That being the case, hearing that a marijuana suppository is effective in treating a woman’s cramps does indeed make me curious.
Reportedly, the vaginal suppository contains 60 mg of THC and 10 mg of CBD and according to the site, two women had this to say:
Lynanne G says:
While cannabis has always helped with my painful cramps, being high is often not an option at work. Having a non-psychoactive cannabis product for relief is a game changer.
Keely Rae Stinner says:
I woke up this morning in a lot of pain due to menstrual cramps and immediately used the product. I have always really struggled with the incredible pain of cramps and this has definitely been the most effective method in ridding the pain.
The maker (Foria) claims:
Users have reported a significant decrease in the pain and discomfort often associated with menstruation. 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.
Obviously doctors in traditional medicine (versus holistic doctors) aren’t too convinced.
Jen Gunter, OB-GYN and pain medicine doctor asserts Foria is untested and insists that whether it works or not, there no way around the fact that the woman and her va-jay-jay will indeed by high from the va-hay-hay. Additionally, Gunter [untested opinion as well] says the amount of THC in the suppository is excessive and could lead to death.
This isn’t the first vaginal suppository Dr. Gunter has weight in on. As well, there are others out there – e.g the “Herbal Womb Detox Pearl” made by a company called Embrace Pangrea (founded by a woman named Tamieka Atkinson)…. claims to be able to tighten the vagina, cure fibroid tumors, rid women of BV, and even claim to have a “womb maintenance package.”
Gunter refutes all that, too, having said:
The vagina makes excess discharge when there is A) irritation B) infection C) an absence of good bacteria,” she said. “This discharge isn’t some toxic swill that the vagina was hiding that only the “pearls” could release, it’s a sign that these ‘pearls’ are damaging. Here’s my vaginal pearl – leave it alone, it’s not exactly sentient but it can cope very well without any meddling.

Unlike the marijuana suppositories which can only be sold in states where marijuana is legal, the “Herbal Womb Detox Pearl” has less state-governed restrictions.
So far, however, the marijuana suppository (Foria Relief) is only available in California and Colorado but from the looks of things, it’s going full speed seed ahead.
