What is Endometriosis and the symptoms?

Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus, the endometrium, grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. With endometriosis, the endometrial-like tissue thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. But because this tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. Endometriosis can cause pain, sometimes severe, especially during menstrual periods. Fertility problems also may develop.

Studies have shown that plant based endocannabinoid medicines can potentially improve Endometriosis symptoms. Endocannabinoid medicines may be of benefit to endometriosis sufferers. Plant based medicine in clinical trials has been effective for pain, as well as other associated symptoms such as gastrointestinal problems, nausea, anxiety, depression and sleep[1].
