CBD, the non-intoxicating compound derived from the cannabis plant is changing the way people view health, especially women!

CBD has the amazing ability to help alleviate many conditions and symptoms, like pain, anxiety, headaches, regulate sleep cycles, control muscles spasms, inflammation and more but did you know that CBD can improve a women's health by alleviating symptoms associate with PMS and menopause. 

CBD For PMS

Premenstrual Syndrome, or PMS, can occur before and during your period, and involves one, or usually more, of the following symptoms:

 

  •  Mood swings

  • Cramps

  • Breast tenderness

  • Anxiety/Stress

  • Bloating

  • Extreme Tiredness or Fatigue

  • Constipation

  • Cravings

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) effects 3 out of every 4 women who menstruate, after ovulation in the luteal phase before menstruation. The symptoms of PMS influence a wide range of body functions from hormonal to muscular and most women can probably agree...PMS is not fun! Depending on a very delicate balance of estrogen and progesterone the symptoms can vary and experiencing all the symptoms listed above throughout ones menstrual cycle is common.

Dr. Julie Holland, a psychiatrist and psychopharmacology specialist agrees that our mammalian Endocannabinoid System is responsible for maintaining a homeostasis environment during this unbalanced time of the month for women. CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anxiolytic and a muscle relaxant to relieve these symptoms most women experience on a constant basis. Holland states, " anandamide, our main internal endocannabinoid, helps to tamp down the stress response and return our hormones and nervous system to a normal balance."

CBD For Menopause 

Menopause marks the end of a women's reproductive abilities by naturally stopping menstruation cycles because of a decrease in the production of the hormone estrogen.

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • hot flashes

  • mood swings/depression

  • insomnia 

  • aches & joint pain 

  • weight gain/diabetes

Research has shown that the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays an essential role in many bodily functions and other aspects of health, including:

  • mood regulation

  • immune functions

  • pain

  • sleep

  • memory

  • fertility and reproduction

  • temperature regulation 

  • cognitive function

 

Although, there haven't been many studies conducted to evaluate to the effects that CBD can have when a women is experiencing PMS or menopause, it has been proven that our endocannabinoid system is responsible for keep our body in a state of homeostasis, and regulates bodily functions like the ones listed above. Homeostasis is a term used to describe when all our bodily functions are functioning properly.

 

How Can CBD Help With Menopause?

 

It is believed that a deficiency in your endocannabinoid system can lead to an array of health problems, if it is not being supplemented with the nutrition it needs.  Eating organic, weekly exercise  and supplementing your body with cannabinoids such as CBD keeps your endocannabinoid system in check, therefore affecting all other bodily functions in a positive way, to maintain balance. With that being said, women going through menopause can find relief using CBD as a therapeutic aid to help manage hot flashes, pain, insomnia, mood swings and more.
