The popularity of CBD/hemp oil has grown significantly over the past year, and rightly so. Hemp oil is being used for everything from treating inflammation to joint pain, sleeping disorders, and stress tremendously growing the demand for hemp-infused products.
Today, the market is flooded with hemp oil, tinctures, edibles, creams, lotions, and hemp-infused beverages. But, if you think you’ve seen it all, think again. A startup recently launched its new product, hemp tampons, and is making waves in the CBD/hemp industry.
So, what’s a hemp tampon, you ask?
According to research, nine out of ten women in the US experience period cramps or primary dysmenorrhea, which is its medical term. As anyone who has gone through the ordeal will tell you, period cramps can be especially painful. The sad part is many women have no choice but to suffer this excruciating pain for years—until now, that is.
For many women who are going through painful periods, the hemp tampons seem to have certainly taken the place of traditional over-the-counter options.
While the use of any hemp-derived product is still technically in the legal gray area in some states, that hasn’t seemed to have stopped companies in the CBD/hemp oil industry from constantly innovating and coming up with new products that have been infused with hemp. The new kid on the block in the hemp industry this time is menstrual hemp suppositories or hemp tampons. For many women who are going through painful periods, the hemp tampons seem to have certainly taken the place of traditional over-the-counter options.
While experts claim that there’s still a lot of research that needs to be done so that they can unequivocally support the use of these new hemp tampons, many of the women who have used this product swear by its effectiveness of eliminating pain and discomfort during periods. In fact, many women who have used the hemp tampons have come forward to admit the menstrual and pelvic pain relief that the tampons can provide.
The hemp suppositories or hemp tampons are a small-sized, cylinder-shaped tampon that’s inserted vaginally, which is similar to a regular tampon. Also, just like a regular tampon, you don’t need to use an applicator when using the hemp suppositories, which makes them efficient and user friendly.
The active ingredients that have been used in the manufacturing process of these hemp-infused tampons is coconut oil, cocoa butter, and, of course, hemp oil. According to the manufacturers of this product, these three ingredients work together to allow the hemp tampon to soften up and melt once inserted in the body, eliminating any pain or discomfort that’s felt when compared to regular tampons. But, the effectiveness of this product doesn’t end there. From that point, the hemp is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream by way of the mucosa in the vagina, which results in a quick-acting formula said to relieve pain or discomfort experienced during periods.
