Ladies, listen up!
We all know PMS can be a pain. Sure, a physical pain, but also that special kind of torture where one minute you're pumped up and getting ready for your day, and the next you're crying in the shower for no apparent reason.
Luckily that monthly case of the mean reds can be made a bit more bearable with the help of CBD.
The pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD helps to ease period cramps and keep the swelling of the uterus at bay - both when consumed orally or when applied topically.
Brilliant brands like Dr Kerklaan have created a targeted PMS cream, to be rubbed into the abdomen area and lower back for fast relief. With a fragrant vanilla scent it’s the ultimate in CBD self-care.
And our Goodleaf CBD drops can be very effective in relaxing the uterine system, reducing inflammation and pain as well as diminishing any feelings of anxiety and stress that may be overwhelming you due to fired up hormones.
Women of all ages the world over are turning to CBD to help them with some of the other uniquely female issues they face too.
Many use it each month for its anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and mood elevating benefits to help them get through the symptoms of PMS. But others also take it for more severe conditions like endometriosis, with CBD assisting in reducing pain and easing nausea.
Some also use topical CBD products to relieve any pain or discomfort during sex, or simply to enhance their sexual experience.
Older women are finding CBD useful for treating the symptoms of menopause - stabilising mood changes, combatting insomnia and decreasing the rate of any bone density loss.
And, as one recent study by the University of São Paulo in Brazil has indicated, some women can use it to provide relief from hormonal imbalances. Researchers found that CBD helped to regulate the secretion of the stress-activating hormone cortisol.
Plus, hemp-based CBD products contain omega fatty acids and gamma linolenic acid, all of which are known to help regulate hormones.
Just a few more reasons why CBD is being turned to as the natural alternative for treating common health concerns.
