Bombay Hemp Company (BOHECO), India’s foremost industrial hemp and medical cannabis company, expands its prescription product range by launching BLOSSOM, a proprietary Ayurvedic medicine for symptomatic relief from PCOS & PCOD.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce abnormal amounts of male hormones. Recent studies reveal that about 16 percent of women between the ages of 20 and 29 years suffer from the condition in India, which is aggravated by increased incidents of unhealthy eating patterns and sedentary lifestyles .
Dr. Harshad Jain, BAMS, MD (Ayu), Ayurvedic Medical Practitioner, BOHECO, stresses the use of holistic healing in addressing the growing burden of lifestyle ailments. “Lifestyle diseases, if not detected and managed on time, may lead to severe consequences. With the use of Ayurveda and plant-based wellness showing a rising trend in recent years, we are able to harness the benefits of the medicinal properties of the Vijaya leaf to treat various health issues. Vijaya leaf based Ayurvedic medicines along with lifestyle and dietary changes offer a holistic and non-toxic way to manage conditions like PCOS & PCOD, which arise from poor lifestyle habits.”
BLOSSOM channels the power of powdered Vijaya leaf (Cannabis Sativa Linn.), along with a unique blend of Ashoka, Lodhra, Ajwain, Shunthi, Chandrasur and Dashmool to offer symptomatic relief through natural healing for PCOS & PCOD, in addition to restoring menstrual health by regularising the menstrual cycle, easing menstrual flow and relieving period cramps.
Rooted in the Ayurvedic philosophy, this prescription-based medicine includes cannabis in its natural form with the full spectrum of (plant-based) Phyto-cannabinoids, that allows for sustained healing and well-being. Cannabinoids in the Vijaya leaf help reduce cytokine and chemokine levels in the body, which suppress inflammatory responses, thereby alleviating period pain and irregularity. Lodhra, known to have anti-androgenic effects, with phytoestrogenic-rich Ashoka, assists in the management of PCOS & PCOD hormonal complications and helps improve fertility. The addition of Dashmool (a blend of 10 roots), considered an analgesic, aids in relieving menstrual cramps and the pain associated with them.
Much like BOHECO’s other health and wellness products, this proprietary amalgamation works on the body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS) to heal the symptoms of PCOS & PCOD, reduce cramps and improve menstrual and reproductive health, for a happy and healthy period.
