Marijuana Tampons Are Here And They Are Ready To Cure Your Period Cramps
"It’s a fantastic modality to help patients."
If you’re period cramps have been getting rough, then there’s a new kind of tampon that might be able to help you out. Please allow us to introduce to you…marijuana tampons!
Yep. They’re a thing, an actual thing that exists in the world, and apparently they help relieve the very worst of period pains. Who knew that the cure was just putting weed into your vagina.
Where’s our proof? Well, according to Racked, Morton Barke, the medical director of California’s medical marijuana evaluation centre, said of the weed tampons: "We know that cannabis does help pain. We do see a lot of patients with dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea is painful menstrual periods. It’s a fantastic modality to help patients". Sounds good to us!
The products have been on sale since January, and apparently users have experienced less painful cramps as a result. The downside? The product is currently only available to California residents with a valid physician’s recommendation letter. Plus, a pack of four will set you back around £33. Which isn’t great.
But this product has got us thinking: if all you need to cure period cramps is to put weed into your vagina – what else can you cure by inserting marijuana into specific locations? Just think about it. Blocked nose? Shove some cannabis up there! Itchy eyes? Just rub them with some weed! The possibilities are endless.*
As soon as the products become available to UK residents, we’ll be sure to let you know, so stay tuned to MTV.
*We’re just being silly. First of all, please, please don’t buy illegal drugs. And if you do, please don’t shove them into parts of your body. Just some friendly advice from your pals over at MTV. We got you. We got you.
