The #1 ingredient in generic tampons and sanitary napkins is Rayon. Rayon is a fiber that is made from cellulose fibers, and while cellulose itself is a natural fiber, transforming it into rayon involves processes which use chemicals such as carbon disulphide, sulfuric acid, chlorine, and caustic soda. Side effects from exposure to too much rayon can include: nausea, vomiting, chest pain, headaches, and many others.
Tampons are very toxic, and many women face intense pain and muscle cramps during their periods. Now, a company called Foria has created “cannabis vaginal suppositories”, designed to help them relieve these symptoms.
The tampons contain THC and CBD, which the company claims helps to soothe pain, relax the muscles and nerves, and stimulate the release of joyful chemicals to the brain.
So far, the reviews are good, and if you want to buy them you have to search and join Foria’s collective, and depending on the state you live in, you might need to submit an application along with a physician’s recommendation letter. Additionally, a pack of four of these tampons costs $44.
According to their official website, where you can find a number of comments by women who have tried it, this product has been specifically formulated to provide relief from menstrual and pelvic discomfort. And again, conventional tampons are full of toxic ingredients!
