A new observational study that will have women use a cannabis-based suppository pill aims to determine the effects cannabis can have on menstrual symptoms for women. 

The study will be led by Staci Gruber, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the director of the Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Core and the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery program at the McLean Hospital in Massachusetts, in partnership with Foria, a California-based cannabis company producing the suppositories. 

In the study, 400 women will be monitored over a few months and will report their results on the suppository via an automated online questionnaire. 

According to Gruber, it is the first step in determining whether the suppositories can provide better relief for women suffering from menstrual issues, and can eventually lead to a clinical trial comparing the suppository to a placebo.
