Keeled over in agony, with back pain, headaches, cramps and vomiting. It’s a monthly struggle ladies know all too well.
All you want to do is relax in bed, with snacks, a hot water bottle and a good box set. This is especially prevalent for those suffering from endometriosis.
What does the science say?
CBD is still a new concept to the world of alternative medicine. Subsequently, there have been no clinical studies on the effects of CBD on period related pains… yet.
There are, however, many studies available on how CBD works to benefit anti-inflammatory issues and pain relief.
Inflammation is connected to a variety of reproductive health concerns, including period pains.
Research has shown that CBD works with the endocannabinoid system, an internal network of receptors and chemical messages which help the body maintain homeostasis while facing environmental stresses.
This research has suggested that if a person’s hormones are imbalanced, it can negatively impact their natural levels of endocannabinoids.
Introducing cannabinoids, such as CBD, to your endocannabinoid system can help reduce this breakdown, showing also that it may have positive benefits in stimulating our cannabinoid receptors from pain relief, reducing inflammation, and improving mood. All of which can potentially improve our menstrual cycle experience.
Incorporate CBD into your life today to see if it helps during your next cycle.
