Cannabis oil can be used for many things, and while we mostly think of its uses as for more of a chronic health supplement, there are more “regular” health issues that can benefit from these calming oils. PMS, for instance, has been shown in many studies to benefit from cannabis oils, as well as marijuana. There are many forms for helping our ladies with PMS – and they are all different.
Foria Relief is a tampon-type product that contains organic cocoa butter, THC oil, and CBD (another active ingredient in marijuana). These cannabinoids help with pain relief and prompt muscle relaxation—without any foggy-headedness or sudden interest in eating an entire buffalo chicken pizza. According to Foria, “Users have reported a significant decrease in the pain and discomfort often associated with menstruation.”
The pre-rolled joints are also used to help women with PMS stifle their issues. Studies have also shown that this can be more effective than popping a few Midol pills.
This research isn’t new; in fact is has been going on since the early 2000s. In 2002, Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at University of Washington, Dr. Ethan Russo, published a research compilation called Cannabis Treatments in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Historical Review. This research examined many works, dating back centuries, with documented success in using cannabis to treat symptoms of PMS. His findings dated back to ancient traditions of people in Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China and more. In fact, Until the early 1900’s, cannabis tinctures were also commonly prescribed by physicians and available for over-the-counter purchase in pharmacies throughout the United States. Then the war on marijuana was waged in the 1930’s by the leader of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, Henry Anslinger, signaling the beginning the era of prohibition.
So, marijuana could potentially help PMS. Should you invest in these $44 tampon-like tools, or in pre-rolled marijuana cigarettes? Perhaps. It’s totally up to you. Many of us want a natural way to control our pain, and CBD is one of the best ways, dating way back to our ancestors in other lands.
