It’s that time of the month again... Mother nature’s gift; a visit from Aunt Flo. No matter what you call your period, it’s a time where most women feel mentally and emotionally sick. From debilitating symptoms of cramps, bloating, anxiety and sleeplessness, most women need a little help through those rough days.
No one enjoys a painful period, so grabbing the Ibuprofen is a no brainer... but what about alternative products like CBD and THC? More women are turning to healthy, natural, plant-based alternatives and CBD is one of them. But are they working like pain pills?
It turns out cannabis products have shown to work for painful periods and other symptoms. While pain medication works for some, anti-inflammatory pills can also produce negative effects on the stomach, and are not good for your health in the long run. This is why so many people are turning to alternative relief!
3 Ways CBD Can Help, Especially During Your Period.
1. Alleviate Stress and Anxiety
CBD is known to help the body manage stress and anxiety, especially during that time of month. Hemp naturally inhibits the release of the stress hormone, Cortisol, and slows the breakdown of the endocannabinoid, Anandamide, also known as the “bliss molecule.” You’ll probably find yourself a little less bothered by painful and annoying PMS symptoms. Try using this CBD Essential Oil Roller of CBD blended ingredients for a time-release mental balance.
2. Known to Help Reduce Breast and Lower Abdomen Aches & Pains
CBD is known to help soreness, cramps and pain, especially around tender areas of the breasts, stomach, and lower back during your period. Our powerful blend of CBD, menthol and other botanicals is famous for easing aches & pains. So try our Active Botanical CBD Gel Roller. You may just feel a little better without any side effects.
3. Help with Mood Swings
Hormones are going up and down and all around during your cycle, especially before and during your period. It’s not uncommon to endure PMS, or heavy mood swings because of the hormonal imbalance. This is where CBD can help you; it interacts with our body’s Endocannabinoid system (a part of the body that is responsible for hormone regulation), and it helps it run smoothly. This is where our Restoring CBD Capsules and our Restoring Botanical CBD Tincture come into play. They may help you feel less moody and happier throughout the month.
