Summary: A new study published in the Journal of Endometriosis and Uterine Disorders has found that tampons infused with CBD (cannabidiol) can significantly reduce pain in cases of severe cramps and menstrual pain. The study suggests that CBD tampons could offer fewer side effects than anti-inflammatories while providing a similar pain-relieving effect.
Innovative CBD Tampons Show Promise in Relieving Menstrual Pain
The study explored the potential of CBD-infused tampons as a management tool for primary dysmenorrhea, a condition involving painful muscle spasms and cramps that affects a significant portion of people who menstruate. Researchers focused on the interaction of CBD with CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are widely distributed throughout uterine tissue, making them ideal targets for localized cannabinoid deposition to alleviate pain.
The research was conducted using a randomized, placebo-controlled design. Participants, unaware of whether they were using a CBD-infused tampon or a standard one, reported their pain levels and overall satisfaction with the product. The study confirmed the safety of the CBD-infused tampons, passing various tests including those for vaginal irritation, sensitization, systemic toxicity, pyrogenicity, and potential toxic shock syndrome risk.
The study observed a statistically significant reduction in pain, particularly on the second day of the first month and the first and second days of the third month of the trial, attributable to the CBD-infused tampon. The lead author, Valentina Milanova, is the founder and CEO of Daye, a gynecological research company that sells what it claims is the “world’s first CBD tampon.” All authors have financial ties to Daye’s parent company, Anne’s Day Ltd.
Less than 5 percent of participants experienced irritation related to the CBD-infused tampon, and a notable percentage reported improvement in vaginal dryness. The study highlights the potential of CBD-infused tampons as a viable intervention for primary dysmenorrhea and strengthens the case for continued exploration of the relationship between cannabinoids and menstrual pain.
