For woman suffering from period pain, marijuana can help curb those cramps.

But not how you would think.

Suppositories filled with cannabis have hit the U.S. market. The suppositories, which are shaped like tampons, are inserted into the vagina.

Each FORIA Relief capsule contains 60 mg of THC, 10 mg of cannabidiol and cocoa butter, but don't make users feel high. A four pack costs $44 and right now is only sold in California and Colorado, where cannabis is legal.

According to the Daily Mail, the product has not been approved by the FDA, which concerns some doctors.

Dr. Helen Webberley, of the Oxford Online Pharmacy, told the Huffington Post that she would be worried woman using the product before it has been fully tested by the agency.
