New Israeli clinical trials will examine the safety and efficacy of cannabis-based treatments for some of the most painful and persistent gynecological conditions faced by women. The trials, expected in early 2022, will test cannabis-based pharmacology products developed by Gynica, a Jerusalem-based femtech (female technology) startup that believes that the active ingredients in the plant can ease painful conditions in the female reproductive system such as dysmenorrhea, or painful menstruation, and endometriosis. Conventional treatments like over-the-counter painkillers, hormone therapy, and even surgical intervention can be insufficient or even pose their own health detriments in the case of endometriosis, and often agonizing disorder that occurs when tissue similar to that which normally lines the uterus – the endometrium – begins to grow outside the organ. Gynica says it is hoping to meet unaddressed needs in women’s health by developing cannabis-based solutions for these conditions.
