Endometriosis, a chronic and often debilitating condition, affects millions of women worldwide. Characterised by the abnormal growth of tissue similar to the lining of the uterus outside the uterus, endometriosis can cause severe pain, fertility challenges, and a host of other symptoms. In recent years, cannabinoids, the compounds found in the cannabis plant, have emerged as a potential ally in the fight against endometriosis.

This project explores the ways in which cannabinoids may offer relief and support for individuals grappling with the challenges of endometriosis.

Many people, including doctors, still think there is no known cause for Endo. However, research from Japan and Australia (Source: The Guardian) theorise Endo could be a bacterial infection caused by a genetic condition. 

This project has multiple aims:

  • To provide a central resource for research into Endo, with specific reference to cannabinoids.
  • To provide a communications hub for patients and medical professionals
  • To create natural formulations, owned by the community, to help treat patients.
