From a young age, my fascination with plants and herbs led me to discover the medicinal properties of cannabis. At the age of 13, I stumbled upon an alcohol-based rub containing cannabis that provided genuine relief for my back pain - an experience that ignited my interest in exploring the science behind this powerful plant.
As I delved deeper into the subject, I found that although there was ample research on the relationship between cannabis and female reproductive health, there was a significant gap in knowledge when it came to using cannabis for other health issues.
As someone who personally suffered from debilitating period pain, I was determined to find a solution that combined the cannabinoids I knew to be beneficial with herbs that had historically been used to treat menstrual cramps. In collaboration with herbalists, I developed a tincture that worked wonders for my pain - not realizing at the time that I had endometriosis.
My desire to share this formula with others led me to develop a wider range of cannabis-based products, culminating in the launch of Xula Herbs. For me, Xula is an expression of my love for plant medicines and my own journey towards feeling good in my own body and having a better cycle.
I hope that our products can provide the same relief and support that they have given me on my healing journey. Thank you for considering Xula Herbs as a part of your wellness routine.
