CBD is the NEW THING.
You can get it for your dog.
You can get it after a workout at 24 Hour Fitness.
You can pick it up at your local Walgreens.
But, what is CBD exactly? And, can it help with women’s health?
1. CBD for PMS
Psychiatrist Dr. Julie Holland is a psychopharmacology specialist.
But, how does it actually help?
Recent studies have shown that CBD can reduce inflammation.
And, by reducing inflammation, your PMS symptoms can be significantly reduced.
Here’s the thing, though:
There are no studies proving this.
There’s tons of anecdotal evidence out there, sure.
But, that doesn’t mean that science backs this up. So, do your research, do your own testing, and see what works for you. Remember, every woman’s body is different.
2. CBD for endometriosis
Here’s what Foria Wellness says about CBD for treating endometriosis symptoms:
“Research indicates that cannabinoids could treat endometriosis by:
So, what does that mean exactly?
Basically, it means that cannabinoids can activate certain natural healers in your body. They can also deactivate certain inflammatory processes or immune malfunctions that can trigger endometriosis symptoms.
3. CBD for menopause
First, let’s establish some of the common symptoms associated with menopause:
- Trouble sleeping
- Hot flashes
Now, here’s some real scientific research showing that CBD can positively influence the symptoms above:
Mayo Clinic, one of the most established medical institutions on the planet, found that CBD is likely to benefit people who have anxiety.
2. Trouble sleeping
3. Hot flashes
While no fully conclusive scientific studies have been published (yet) about CBD’s positive impact on hot flashes, there is anecdotal evidence that is promising.
There are studies that have shown that CBD is likely to have a positive impact on symptoms of depression.
4. CBD for hormonal inbalances
“Studies show that the endocannabinoid system activates receptors in the endocrine system and that cannabinoids like CBD have an effect on hormones related to sleep, stress, sexual activity, energy consumption, and much more.”
How does this work?
Well, the endocrine system “is the collection of glands that produce hormones,”
And CBD, when activated, communicates with and regulates the endocrine system.
5. CBD for women’s digestion
“CBD is an immune modulator and a potent anti-inflammatory agent. In addition, it helps to balance the ECS, and therefore has tremendous potential to positively impact a variety of digestive complaints.”
While there is no conclusive scientific evidence proving that CBD can definitely benefit women’s digestion, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that is continuing to motivate women to give it a try.
6. CBD for anxiety and depression
This isn’t just for women.
But, women (just like men) deal with anxiety and depression.
While we already covered this information above, we’ll give you even more proof that shows that CBD is likely to improve your anxiety and depression:
A recent study determined “CBD’s efficacy in reducing anxiety behaviors relevant to multiple disorders, including PTSD, GAD, PD, OCD, and SAD, with a notable lack of anxiogenic effects.”
And this is just one study. There are dozens just like this that show that CBD is likely to improve anxiety.
