Daye: Founded by Bulgarian FemCare Startup Raises $5.5M For Cramp-Fighting CBD Tampons

The winner: Daye in a nutshell

Daye has developed the world’s first pain-relieving CBD tampon. The startup modifes familiar women’s tampons by improving their absorbent properties and making them environment-friendly using hemp fiber. The team aims to raise standards in women’s healthcare by creating sustainable, high-quality products and services. Daye designs its products in-house and manufactures them using its own machinery. The tampons have been designed with the idea to be completely compostable.

The Daye team is also developing the first pain-relieving tampon infused with clinically tested cannabinoids that soothe menstrual pain. Founder Valentina Milanova holds the patent for the innovative creation. The idea first crossed Milanova’s mind while she was examining applications of industrial hemp for a research project.

“We believe medical research should be accessible for all. That’s why we make our own research and related scientific studies accessible and digestible to the non-medical community through our blog,” says the team.
