Today there are many pink-painted + female-founded companies “for you by you” and to be honest I’ve bought into it too, Hi – I’m Antuanette Gomez, the CEO of Peak Pharm Labs.
You see back in 2015 I started Pleasure Peaks, a brand raising awareness on cannabis for sexual health ailments like menstrual cramps, pain during sex, and low libido. This took off like wildfire by the relief many faced, but that’s not what kept me up every night.
Every night I would get emails from strangers asking questions about cannabis for things I’ve never heard of before like endometriosis, fibroids, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and even atrophy. It was hard to say which was more shocking. The number of patients affected or the lack of support for these patients.
It truly broke my heart to read these emails and watch so many patients fall through the cracks of our healthcare system. It’s so systemic the oppression we have towards any sexual orientation that’s not cis hetero- where do we begin.
Women’s sexual health is the least studied in the body.
Womens sexual health is the least funded area of the body.
But here at Peak Pharm Labs, we would argue that LGBTQ+ is the least studied and most impacted by society.
