We’ve covered some of the weirdest ways to ingest cannabis in the past, but Foria may have one-upped anything we’ve written about with its new pot-infused vaginal suppository, which is set to hit California dispensary shelves today and Colorado’s very soon.
The same company that you brought pot-infused sex lube, Foria is now offering an alternative pain relief for monthly menstruation. The suppository — made of a mix of cocoa butter, CO2-extracted cannabis oil and a CBD isolate — is intended for women only and delivers approximately 60 milligrams of THC and 10 milligrams of CBD.
But don’t expect it to get you stoned. Foria says the new suppository is “non-psychoactive because of the delivery-format.”
“Foria Relief is the first vaginal suppository designed specifically for menstrual discomfort,” the company says. “Till now, women had few options to address menstrual discomfort, primarily systemic pain-relievers such as Ibuprofen or herbal teas, since the only other vaginal suppository products have been yeast medications or birth control.”
Marijuana delivered via suppositories is absorbed faster than traditional edibles because the former is absorbed through the vaginal mucosa instead of the liver, which can take up to two hours to take effect. Absorption through the vaginal mucosa wall takes around fifteen minutes.
