New Cannabis Pill May Replace Traditional Painkillers

Fact checked
Cannabis pills proving more effective at treating pain than traditional painkillers

A company has created the first ever cannabis pill designed to relieve menstrual cramp pain in women.

Foria Relief have created a suppository that some are saying is more effective a pain relief than Ibuprofen, Midol, or Viodin.

According to pill’s description:

FORIA Relief has been carefully crafted using a delivery system intended to maximize the muscle relaxing and pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychotropic “high.” Cannabis has a long, cross-cultural history of use as a natural aid in easing symptoms associated with menstruation. Our intention is to share the powerful medicinal properties of this plant while utilizing modern extraction techniques to standardize purity and potency, thereby ensuring a safe and accessible experience for all women. reports:

The active ingredients are extracted from pesticide-free cannabis flowers and made into exact doses—60 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and 10 mg of cannabidiol (CBD)—in a microbial-free process. As the manufacturer states, it does not make you high.

Foria Relief contains both THC and CBD, the two key active cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis. Together they activate certain cannabinoid receptors in the pelvic region when introduced into the body via these specially formulated suppositories. 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. CBD works in the immune system by suppressing the mechanisms responsible for inflammation. CBD also slows down electrical signaling to muscles and allows them to relax, thereby reducing cramping.

Since the pelvic region has more cannabinoid receptors than anywhere else in the body, this product is a logical move. We have reported on many studies discovering the amazing benefits of cannabis as medicine, centered on its use to stimulate our body’s endocannabinoid systems.

Here’s what one writer at had to say about the product:

All of the muscles that had been cramped and clenched so tight gradually released and my body relaxed. Where I had been painfully aware of every inch of my midsection, suddenly it felt as though I had no midsection at all. From my waist down to my thighs, it was almost as if my groin had simply dissolved and was floating in some galaxy far, far away.

The Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved this product as a treatment, but that isn’t stopping people from trying it and finding that it works. Foria Relief is only available in California now, although hopefully this will expand as cannabis legalization is spreading rapidly.


  1. September 11, 2013 Feds patented medical pot… while fighting it

    On Oct. 7, 2003, the US government issued Patent No. 6,630,507. Actor Michael J. Fox and many millions of other Americans — my dear late wife, Tricia, included — could have gotten very excited about this development back then. But it was, apparently, not the sort of thing Washington wanted advertised.

    Patent No. 6,630,507, you see, is for cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. Most people would simply refer to this as medical marijuana. Who got that patent? The US government gave this patent to itself. Just so you understand me, this is the same US government that has been fighting the use of marijuana as a drug. Yet its own scientists were claiming a decade ago that marijuana had been effective against a number of diseases.
