As per a study published in the ‘British Medical Journal’, menstrual pain, heavy bleeding, and low mood may be linked to nearly nine days of lost productivity per woman every year. A focus group study indicates that 84.1 percent of women reported the occurrence of menstrual cramps or primary dysmenorrhea during their menstrual cycles.

Periods are usually associated with mild, tolerable lower abdomen or back discomfort but the pain (dysmenorrhoea) can be severe enough to interfere with day-to-day activities. The existing solutions in modern healthcare and allopathic medicine system are known to have harmful side effects in long term.

Shrey Jain, Co-Founder at HempStreet says: “Menstruation as a topic is highly stigmatized in our country. Period pain is often ignored by making a significant part of women’s lifestyle and working hours stressful and painful. But the fact is that women have even described the cramping pain as ‘almost as bad as having a heart attack’. On average, a woman goes through around 450 menstrual cycles throughout her lifetime. The irony is that the available solutions in modern medical science possess the threat of serious harmful effects in case of long-term consumption. Trailokya Vijaya Vati aims at providing a reliable, safe, and ayurvedic solution to the women of the 21st century.

The company strives to bring an effective and responsible usage of Cannabis, especially on the pain relief front, to its potential addressable patient base of over 35 million individuals.”

The Cannabis Sativa plant, which encompasses hemp, cannabis, and marijuana, contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids. These are used to treat many diseases and conditions, including chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, menstrual cramps, muscle spasms, mental health, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis, sexual disorders, and more. The legal Cannabis industry is currently one of the fastest-growing industries in the world.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
