I’ve tried everything to soothe the cramps that destruct my abdomen each azygous month, but blistery h2o bottles, baths and capable painkillers to instrumentality down an elephant person had adjacent to nary effect implicit the years.

The endocannabinoid strategy has a full batch of receptors successful the vagina – successful fact, it has the 2nd highest concentration of cannabinoid receptors successful the quality assemblage barroom the encephalon – making it an perfect spot to use a CBD compound. 

Daye’s CBD tampons person 100mg of high-potency (30%), full-spectrum CBD – but earlier you get excited that they mightiness springiness you an added buzz, they’re each made with 0% THC (the portion of cannabis that gets you stoned). 

Daye besides works intimately with a squad of doctors and experts to transportation retired probe surrounding the effects of utilizing CBD vaginally – you tin spot much of that accusation here.

Armed with a enactment of Daye’s CBD and ‘Naked’ tampons, it was clip to spot if they truly did what they said connected the (very aesthetically pleasing) tin.

First things archetypal – normally, I really, truly bash not similar utilizing tampons.

I find them ace uncomfortable careless of size and that they tin marque maine consciousness achy, which erstwhile I’m already battling play cramps is not thing other I privation to adhd to my symptom plate.

They besides earnestly irritate maine ‘down there’, truthful Daye were up for a superior situation successful making maine a regular tampon convert, fto unsocial a CBD-infused one. 

Even earlier trying Daye’s CBD tampons, determination was a batch I was pleased about. 

I’m a sucker for bully aesthetics and the hemp container my tampons came successful was stunning – arsenic was the question tin I was sent for keeping a fistful of tampons harmless from the junk that floats astir successful my tote container erstwhile I’m connected the move.

Daye tampons are besides 100% organic, plastic-free and travel with water-soluble wrappers, sugarcane applicators, and recyclable packaging – truthful adjacent if my vagina was to hatred them, astatine slightest I knew the satellite loves them.

It was arsenic though my play pains conscionable vanished into the abyss and wearing the tampon itself was astir unnoticeable with zero irritation – a archetypal for maine successful my 16 years of menstrual bleeding. 

To cheque that I wasn’t conscionable feeling a placebo effect, I switched to a ‘Naked’ Daye tampon erstwhile it was clip to alteration (sans CBD) to spot if I could consciousness a quality – and yup, wrong fractional an hr of switching implicit my cramps were back.

It’s worthy noting that the Naked tampons were inactive comfy, it’s conscionable that my cramps resumed without the added CBD.

Consider maine a afloat fledged CBD tampon person (as immoderate of my friends who’ve had to perceive to maine drone connected astir however overmuch I emotion Daye’s products since my past play volition archer you) and I’m readying to banal up.
