Why Should Women Take CBD?

Updated: Mar 5


March is Women’s History Month—a celebration of women’s outstanding contributions to history, culture, and society. You go, girls! Through courage, strength, leadership, and love, many remarkable women have helped make our nation greater.


Thank you for your awesomeness!


Regardless of accomplishments, all women share a common history of uniquely female health conditions—periods, PMS, hormonal imbalance, and menopause are some of the many throughout our reproductive life cycles. Ugh. Month after month, these conditions can take a mental and physical toll on our amazing, baby-making bodies.


Luckily, CBD helps alleviate many of the symptoms unique to women, so we can keep feeling strong and focused on our goals.


Here’s why women should take CBD...


CBD for Periods

“That time of the month” can be a real bummer if you suffer from body aches and bloating. Cannabidiol helps reduce inflammation and pain, so it’s a great, natural solution for painful menstrual cramps and other period-related symptoms such as lower back pain, sore breasts, and headaches.


CBD for PMS


Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) should stand for “Pretty Much Sucks.” Body aches, cramps, and bloating before and during a period cause many women to experience erratic mood swings.


Understandable. And treatable!


CBD alleviates the discomfort of bloating, cramps, and swollen breasts, while also moderating mood irregularities and overall mental health. Adding CBD to your daily regimen helps your body and mind power thru the nasty symptoms of PMS.


CBD for Hormonal Imbalance

A hormonal imbalance makes your whole body feel out of whack. Left unchecked, it can cause debilitating symptoms such as fatigue, heart palpitations, irritability, mood swings, hair loss, blood sugar problems, lack of concentration, and, in some cases, infertility.


Hormones affect every cell and system in the body.


Studies have shown CBD reduces the release of the stress hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol impact other hormone levels such as thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. So, less cortisol means more hormonal balance throughout the body.


Balanced hormones are a MUST, ladies!


Plus, using hemp-based CBD products gives your body a good, healthy dose of omega fatty acids and gamma-linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid known for regulating hormones.


CBD for Menopause

No more periods means no more discomfort, right? Wrong! Unfortunately, once your menstrual cycle ends, other uncomfortable symptoms often begin. Menopause causes many women to experience insomnia, bone density loss, and mood swings.



CBD helps reduce sleep disturbances, the rate of bone density loss, and mood changes. How? Cannabidiol interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is made up of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, including the female reproductive system.


Cannabidiol helps these cannabinoid receptors keep the endocannabinoid system—your whole body—functioning smoothly with less stress. Remember, CBD reduces cortisol levels, so it acts like a calming sedative, which improves your sleep and mood.


Conclusion:


CBD relieves many female health conditions, which greatly improves a woman’s quality of life.
