Who Is Xula
Xula is founded by Karina Primelle. From a young age, Karina’s fascination with plants and herbs led her to the discovery of the medicinal properties of cannabis. At the age of 13, she stumbled upon an alcohol-based rub containing cannabis that provided genuine relief for her back pain. This experience ignited her interest in exploring the science behind this powerful plant.
As she delved deeper into the subject, Karina found that although there was ample research on the relationship between cannabis and female reproductive health, there was a significant gap in knowledge when it came to using cannabis for other health issues.
As someone who personally suffered from debilitating period pain, Karina was determined to find a solution that combined the cannabinoids she knew to be beneficial with herbs that had historically been used to treat menstrual cramps. In collaboration with herbalists, she developed a tincture that worked wonders for her pain - not realizing at the time that she had endometriosis.
Her desire to share this formula with others led Karina to develop a wider range of cannabis-based products, culminating in the launch of Xula Herbs. For her, Xula is an expression of her love for plant medicines and her own journey towards feeling good in her own body and having a better cycle.
Karina hopes that the products from Xula Herbs can provide the same relief and support that they have given her on her healing journey. She expresses her gratitude for considering Xula Herbs as a part of one's wellness routine.
Xula’s Community Efforts
