CBD and Women’s health

Many women find that marijuana consumption is not for them. Not everyone enjoys the psychoactive effects, not everyone trusts the purity of their marijuana, and prohibition has made it hard to access. It may seem that for these reasons, women cannot get the cannabinoids they need for overall health. Fortunately, this is not true. The 2018 Farm Bill has made CBD products from the hemp plant nationally accessible. CBD is a powerful cannabinoid that may regulate our homeostasis. Women can finally reap the benefits of cannabinoids without the help of marijuana. Cannabinoid remedies can be a holistic method of treating issues unique to a woman’s body such as PMS, hormonal imbalance, and cramps. 

1. PMS symptoms

Many women can tell you the inconvenience and suffering of PMS. By tapping into our endocannabinoid system, CBD can potentially alleviate PMS symptoms. Firstly, CBD may moderate mood swings through our limbic system. What’s more, they can interact with the brain by balancing hormones via neurotransmitters. Secondly, CBD may also reduce stress and anxiety by inhibiting unnecessary cortisol. And perhaps most importantly, CBD may reduce inflammation in our uterus to effectively remove all cramps. 

Here’s what you can try:

Life Bloom Organics – Quick-Dissolve Hemp PMS Tablets

Made with powdered organic hemp extract and functional ingredients to potentially ease common PMS symptoms such as headaches, cramps, fatigue, bloating, period-related cravings and joint pain.

Terrestrial Roots – PMS Relief Salve

THE 2 oz PMS Relief Healing Salve (300mg CBD) is handcrafted in small batches and made with all natural ingredients designed to bring relief from sore breasts, menstrual cramping, back aches, and irritability.

2. Hormonal Balance

Furthermore, when it comes to overall hormonal imbalance, CBD may once again come to help. The regulation of cortisol and pituitary hormone secretion can help us manage environmental stress on our bodies.

MedTerra – 25mg Women’s Wellness Capsules

Medterra’s Monthly Wellness formula is specifically designed for women to help ease the discomforts of your period. Combining 25mg of pure CBD with Valerian Root, Cramp Bark and other natural ingredients.

3. Women’s Digestion

According to some recent studies, women are more commonly affected by digestion issues than men. Fortunately, we have many cannabinoid receptors in our digestive tracts, which make it easy for CBD to treat. CBD may regulate digestion and modulate bowel movements, which significantly assists guttural health.
