CBD Oil for Menstrual Cramps: Does it Work?
Visit from Aunt Flo. Moon Time. Mother Nature’s Gift. No matter what you call your period, it is something most women have to face about every 28 days. With that time of the month comes an abundance of uncomfortable symptoms. Since women are still discouraged from openly talking about their bodies, it can be challenging to find natural remedies that support your menstrual cycle. However, your well-being shouldn’t be a taboo topic. Using cannabis to treat PMS dates back to 16th-century Chinese medical texts, so why should today be any different?
Here are five ways CBD oil tinctures can support your menstrual cramps and other cycle woes.
5 Benefits of CBD for Menstrual Cramps
In case you aren’t familiar, CBD (also known as Cannabidiol) is a natural compound found in cannabis. Unlike it’s psychoactive sibling THC, CBD won’t make you high. Instead, CBD not only combats the psychoactive effects of THC, but also provides menstrual pain relief, reduces inflammation and beyond. For a deeper dive into what CBD is, check out our CBD 101 article.
Now back to CBD and PMS. If you’re looking for a natural remedy to alleviate your cramp and PMS symptoms, CBD is your answer. In addition to a myriad of other health benefits like improving your sleep or enhancing your sex life, CBD will help you say sayonara to PMS.
1. Reduce breast and lower abdomen tenderness:
CBD is the ultimate natural cure for healing inflamed areas like breasts, stomach and low back. It regulates the vanilloid receptor –– that moderates period pain perception. So massage our high-potency CBD Plant Balm in the affected areas to find some much-needed period pain relief from menstrual discomfort and irritation.
2. Manage stress and anxiety:
CBD helps the body manage and deal with stress. With its anti-anxiety properties, CBD not only inhibits the release of the stress hormone, Cortisol, but also slows the breakdown of endocannabinoid, Anandamide (more commonly known as the “bliss molecule”). Consequently, you will find yourself unbothered by even the most the painful and annoying PMS symptoms.
3. Prevent mood swings:
Hormonal imbalance is very common during PMS and unfortunately, plays a large role in causing mood swings. CBD can help you recalibrate your emotional responses; CBD interacts with our body’s Endocannabinoid system (a network of cell receptors throughout the body that cannabinoids like CBD activate). Our high-performance CBD Be Calm capsules makes sure the Endocrine system (the part of the body responsible for hormone regulation and production) runs smoothly so that your period has less of an effect on your hormones.
4. Fight Inflammation
Cannabinoids are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s no surprise that they are able to relieve severe menstrual cramps and inflammation during your time of the month.
How Does This Work?
To get an idea of how this works, THC activates CB2 receptors, or endocannabinoid. This is located on your immune system’s killer cells (macrophages), and when these receptors are activated, they prevent macrophages from releasing inflammatory proteins known as cytokines. CBD can also help with muscle relaxing. Period cramps are caused by contractions of the smooth muscle lining the uterus and cannabinoid is known to bring relief and relaxation to the smooth muscle. This results in natural muscle pain relief for menstrual discomfort.
5. Relieve cramping and bloating:
By improving digestive functions and reducing inflammation and nausea throughout your body, CBD can help attenuate menstrual cramping and bloating. Better yet, you can proactively prevent these symptoms by taking our fast acting, full-spectrum CBD drops a few days before you start a painful period cycle.
