Menstrual Pain Relief with Whoopi and Maya Bath Soak
Everyone is aware of the pain relief marijuana can bring to cancer patients, war vets and trauma victims but Whoopi Goldberg and Maya Elisabeth realized that there is a pain that half the population suffers from that is being ignored... menstrual cramps.
I can't tell you how many days of my life that have been wasted on a heating pad since I hit puberty. How many days of school or work that I have missed or how many pills i have taken to find comfort during my time of the month. Its the gender side effect most people refer to as a curse, and that's a pretty accurate word for it.
The first time I saw the Whoopi&Maya Cannabis Infused Lavender Bath Soak was from a Snapchat that my friend and former coworker, Julie, sent to me. My response, " WTF IS THAT?! "
Julie is the merchandiser/ website content creator for Barbary Coast, a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco that carries the groundbreaking feminine product. And like the angel she truly is, she brought me a tub of the magic herb concoction.
I couldn't wait for my next cycle to try it out, but i wasn't going to get my hopes up.
And it arrived, on time as usual and as fierce as ever at 5 in the morning. Nature's wrath is no joke. That is not a great time for a bath though so I took two extra strength Advil and went back to sleep with my standard heating pad and pillows under my legs set up as soon as the pills kicked in. I waited the whole day without medication to see the bath soaks effects without any other factors. It was 6pm and i was suffering so I rinsed the tub then filled it with hot water.
I added the wonderfully fragrant Lavender Soak ( The also have Amber Moon and Unscented soak) and sank into the bath.
The heat of the water, the lavender steam and the salts relaxed me. Eyes closed, taking deep breathes of the wonderful smell ( if it didn't work I would buy it cause it smells so nice) I felt no pain. It was pure relief. I laid in the bath till my hands were prunes.
I was not mentally high at all and after being in pain all day I felt calm and peaceful. After the bath about 7pm I was blissed out and asleep by 10:30. That. Never. Happens.
The following days were surprisingly and by surprisingly I mean shockingly easy. I usually have 3 full days of hell but I was only having mild pain. I went to my day job as a waitress the next day and made 100$ in tips feeling great. All those years of my life being disrupted by cramp pain and because of one bath, my life didn't skip a beat. This is a blessing for me and possibly my future daughter who will probably get her crippling cramps from me, just as I have had it passed to me from my mother.
