There are a lot of remedies out there for people who suffer from period pain. Some people swear by drinking tea. Others cuddle up with a heating pad or hot water bottle. There's also a host of medications out there to provide some relief.
None of these remedies include marijuana, but that may be about to change.
Look, periods are basically the worst thing ever.They're inconvenient, they're messy, they can make you grouchy and seem to strike at the worst times ever. But periods hit some people harder than others. The pain people feel during menstruation is called dysmenorrhea.
Luckily for people suffering from particularly intense period pain, there's a new product on the market. And it involves marijuana.Last May, the state of New York added period pain to the list of conditions which allow people to obtain prescriptions for medical marijuana. But even if you don't live in New York, there's a company which has created what are basically marijuana-infused tampons to provide some relief...
The company is called Foria.
