The 21st century is one that celebrates woman. But of the many great things of being a woman -there are a couple of issues that they have to face. These include hormonal imbalances, menstrual difficulties, PMS, fertility issues, menopause….you get the gist.
The habit of popping in pain killers every time the pain shoots beyond a threshold is an experience that most women would be able to relate to. But the issue that these pain killers such as aspirin and paracetamol burden women with is the side effects ranging from heart ailments to increased risk of stroke. Trust us; you are better off not having these in your life!
There has been a long awaited requirement for an herbal alternative and the cry for help was finally answered by none other than the miracle drug, CBD or cannabidiol.
CBD is one of the medicinal compounds that you will find in hemp or cannabis plant. It, along with its ‘cousins’ such as CBGA, CBC, THC, chromenes, terpenes and around 113 others make up what is called the cannabinoids.
The CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system or the ECS. The ECS plays a vital role in regulating many bodily functions right from mood swings to pain management, appetite to behavior. The ECS receives the signals from natural cannabinoid that are produced by the body itself and cause effects. CBD and its band of cannabinoids help act as a means to further enhance the effects.
CBD: For PMS, Hormonal Imbalances, Menopause And More
The feminine body is a mix of hormones and these hormones act as messengers for various functions relating to reproduction and growth. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is one condition that many women experience, causing the hormones to go wild and lead to cramps, mood swings and cravings. In simple words, they are a mess at this time of the month. The common symptoms include low moods, feeling bloated and being irritable. CBD use helps modulate and regulate the ECS, which in turn helps maintain a balance of various hormones and functions in the body (Homeostasis).
Rather than having antidepressants for boosting the mood, you can take the safer alternative and bank it on CBD instead. CBD health benefits can be availed in a variety of ways: from CBD pills and edibles to CBD vapes. If you want to stay away from smoking, then best settle for oils, tinctures and gummy bear drops that will help supply a steady CBD dosage throughout the day.
Celebrate your femininity with CBD!
