BOULDER, COLORADO: Following the overwhelmingly positive reviews from California patients, Foria, the internationally recognized cannabis brand and leader in cannabis sexual health, announces the Colorado debut of Foria Relief™. Foria Relief™ is the first cannabis infused vaginal suppository specifically designed to relieve menstrual discomfort. Women that have tried Foria Relief™ are reporting a significant decrease in pelvic pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, nausea, lower back pain and even headaches often experienced during menstruation. The vaginal insert, first released in California earlier this year, was formulated for women to access the natural pain relieving properties of cannabis without inducing a psychoactive high.

“I continued to have the surreal sensation that all the nerve endings in my uterus, cervix, and ovaries were having a very chill tea party. It wasn’t just that my cramps were gone – the entire region felt better than normal.” – Gabrielle Korn of NYLON Magazine

Each dose of Foria Relief™ (one suppository) contains 60mg THC and 10mg CBD combined with fair trade organic cocoa butter. By delivering this formula in suppository form directly to the cervix, Foria Relief™ reaches the areas that need it most AND does so without inducing the psychoactive effects traditionally associated with cannabis products of this potency. “The pelvic region contains more cannabinoid receptors than any other part of the body except for the brain,” notes Foria’s Co-CEO, Mathew Gerson, “so delivering these cannabinoids in a suppository format is a natural choice.”

The introduction of Foria Relief™ in Colorado’s medical and recreational (adult-use) markets, represents a significant milestone in that women from around the world will now have access to this all-natural pain relieving medicinal.

Cannabis therapies for aiding menstrual discomfort have gained massive public attention since the beginning of 2016 led by the launch of Foria Relief™and followed by Whoopi Goldberg’s entrance into the market with her product line “Whoopi & Maya.” Foria is thrilled to welcome such a respected female voice to the cannabis community as Whoopi’s influence and support will undoubtedly help to dissolve negative stigmas and raise cannabis awareness among women as an effective form of natural medicine.

“I love them! As someone who has struggled with PCOS [polycystic ovary syndrome] for years, my premenstrual pain is pretty bad. These Foria suppositories alleviated all pain. I felt a pure bliss down there. The suppository smelled like pure chocolate—it was unreal.” – A 25-year old female participant from Josh Jardine’s recent mini-study on Foria Relief™ published in Portland Mercury Newspaper

Dysmenorrhea affects almost 50% of women everywhere, 84% of whom suffer moderate-to-severe menstrual pain every month. Because ibuprofen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) affect the entire body, side-effects are common and when it comes to over-the-counter & prescription drugs, women sometimes experience side-effects more often than men because testing & dose-calibration are primarily based on male biology.

Cannabis has a long, cross cultural history of use as a natural aide in easing symptoms associated with menstruation – even Queen Victoria is said to have been prescribed oral cannabis to relieve her menstrual pain. Foria is pleased to offer this ancient remedy to modern users in a safe, accessible and effective format.
