Women are constantly anticipating PMS as they are awarded a few days of relief before it starts all over again. PMS may occur several days before and proceed during the menstruation cycle.
The premenstrual syndrome and menstrual symptoms differ from woman to woman but more or less all women are experiencing the following:
· cramps or strong pain in the stomach
· tiredness and fatigues
· nausea and vomiting
· mood swings
· stress and anxiety
Luckily our endocannabinoid system works well with CBD in reducing all these symptoms. CBD oils can offer relief for pain, inflammation, anxiety states and depression, which is why women reach for CBD when menstruation discomfort is unbearable.
During your period you are experiencing inflammation in your pelvic region. Therefore, the inflammation is one of the causes of pain, cramps and bloating.
Reducing inflammation is one of the main therapeutic properties CBD is used for. By impacting the endocannabinoid receptor activity, as some studies suggest, CBD significantly reduces inflammation. Even though there isn’t specific research on the effect of the CBD on the pelvic inflammation during the menstrual cycle, its general anti-inflammatory properties may help with the inflammation and therefore reduce the pain.
Premenstrual and menstrual pains are a result of the inflammation and muscle contractions due to sudden hormonal changes. CBD is not specifically tested for this type of pain, however, if it reduces inflammation it will relieve the pain. Moreover, due to CBD’s effect on the endocannabinoid system and its receptors found in the body, it can affect them to change their perception of pain.
As it is already well-known, CBD is very effective in reducing anxiety and some symptoms of depression. This is a result of CBD being able to trigger the secretion of dopamine and serotonin in the body. These hormones and the chemical reactions that occur in the body can help improve the mood and promote calmness.
Recent mood swings, negative thoughts, and restlessness are all part of premenstrual and menstrual symptoms and they highly interfere with productivity and motivation. CBD can help you achieve your balance and feel happier for this specific part of the month.
