There's a new ~solution~ on the market: a marijuana suppository called Foria that you take vaginally to cure your cramps.

According to the company's website, "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."

But! Doctors aren't so sure. "[Foria] is completely untested with zero studies and the claims that are being made from the website aren't really supported in basic science," Jen Gunter, an OB-GYN and pain medicine physician, told BuzzFeed.

"If it's getting into your bloodstream there is a risk of it making you high. Period. So either your medicine is completely ineffective, or it's getting into your bloodstream and then there is a risk that it will get you high," she said.

Further, said Gunter, the amount of THC in Foria is pretty extreme. "Most people consider a unit of oral administration to be 10 milligrams of THC. There's 60 in this."

Which might be dangerously high. Gunter cited several recent deaths in Colorado linked to edibles with extremely high levels of THC.

As Gunther told BuzzFeed, "THC's direct effects on the uterus is completely unknown. There's no science to support that."
