Endometriosis is a disease that effects 1 in 10 women of reproductive age and involves that abnormal growth of extra-uterine tissues. The main symptom is severe pain that is difficult to relieve without hormones or surgery.

Our body has an endocannabinoid system that communicates cells throughout our body and shares similar effects and properties to the cannabinoids extracted from cannabis. Several studies suggest that cannabinoids are effective in relieving pain caused by diseases such as endometriosis. Prolonged tratment (>7 days) relieves chronic pain and reduces inflammation and hyperalgesia.

CBD (a non-psychoactive component of cannabis) provides therapeutic and analgesic benefits, which improve many people’s life quality.
