An investor in stealth (ex-entrepreneur who recently exited his company) have come across a product: cannabinoid-tampons against menstrual pain. Many questions were arising when approaching the scientific validity and possible pitfalls of this investment. Here are a few:
- How can a tampon release a substance and absorb another at the same time?
- Is THC necessary or is CBD only sufficient for the analgesic effect of the drug?
- Is there enough scientific evidence that local application of cannabinoids is efficient against menstrual pain?
- Is the product a medical product (regulated) or a hygiene product (unregulated)
Through mobilising our network and doing literature and patent search, we were able to answer these questions very fast.
