How Can CBD Benefit Women’s Health?
CBD has the potential to benefit the health of every human being, but today we’re going to focus on the many benefits CBD can have on women’s health. From PMS to chronic illness, CBD has the potential to immensely improve your quality of life without adverse side effects. Keep reading to find out some of the best reasons to add CBD to your daily wellness routine.
CBD for Your Physical Health
100 million people in the United States suffer from a chronic condition, and 54 million of them are women. Some of the most common symptoms of chronic illnesses are pain and inflammation, two things that CBD is known to help prevent and relieve.
One of the most well-known studies on CBD unleashed its vast potential for reducing inflammation, cell death, and oxidative stress, all of which are linked to various chronic conditions, including arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
CBD for PMS and Menstrual Cramps
Naturally, the ability for CBD to reduce pain and inflammation has encouraged women to turn to CBD for PMS symptoms. The calming effects of CBD help your muscles loosen up and relax, which can reduce the intensity of your cramps and the sore feeling of swollen breasts. If you’re prone to headaches during your period, CBD is also known to help relieve intense migraines.
PrimaTerra CBD salve offers topical relief that targets your cramps, headaches, and muscle aches right at the source.
CBD for Hormonal Balance
CBD has also shown potential in helping regulate hormonal imbalances. One study found that CBD helped regulate cortisol production. Cortisol is known as the “stress hormone” that activates when we’re physically and mentally stressed out.
CBD’s sleep and sedative effects have also been linked to helping with the symptoms of menopause, which commonly causes hormone imbalances and sleep disturbances in middle-aged women as their bodies change.
We recommend taking one or two of our melatonin soft gels before bed. This will help you sleep better while the cannabinoids work overtime to help regulate your system.
CBD for Your Mental Health
PMS and menopause can also wreak havoc on our brains, triggering anxiety, depression, and mood swings. CBD’s ability to restore balance in the endocannabinoid system is key to its mood-balancing effects.
If you suffer from depression and/or anxiety, whether it’s exacerbated by PMS or not, CBD can potentially help. In a study about the neurological effects of CBD, researchers found that it helps restore and protect neurons in the hippocampus, the exact area that causes depressive symptoms. As far as anxiety goes, CBD has shown to help reduce social anxiety disorder when taken before events. If you feel more anxious during certain times of the month over others, the cumulative effects of a regular CBD routine will help regulate your mood. CBD’s effects are also linked to boosting libido in people who have a lower sex drive due to anxiety. If anxiety is preventing you from putting yourself out there, CBD could be a great solution.
If you’re not feeling your best mentally, keep some of our daytime curcumin gummies on hand to keep anxiety at bay without any intoxicating or sedative effects.
CBD for Acne and Skincare
PMS, hormones, and stress can all wreak havoc on our bodies, and for many women, it shows itself most prominently on our skin, often in the form of acne.
One of the more unique studies on CBD found that when the cells that produce sebum – called sebocytes – are exposed to CBD, it lowers the rate at which they produce sebum, which clogs pores and causes acne. The CBD also prevented cytokines from forming in the cells, which is the inflammatory response that often triggers acne flare-ups.
CBD for Weight Loss and Management
Some studies have shown that the effects CBD has on your internal system can potentially help promote a healthy weight. According to a popular study from 2016, researchers found that cannabidiol helps turn white fat cells (the bad ones) into brown fat cells (the good ones). When this process happens, the body interacts differently with the cells and burns them as heat energy, which burns more calories than the white fat cells that just sit around.
CBD as Preventive Care
CBD is often used to help relieve symptoms that already exist, but that’s only one side of the battle to feeling your best. The cumulative effects of CBD in the endocannabinoid system make it optimal as a form of preventive care.
When you start a new CBD routine, the effects will largely depend on the current state of your endocannabinoid system. This system regulates a variety of internal processes such as pain and inflammation responses, mood, appetite, and even your memory. When you consume CBD it interacts with CB2 receptors, which travel all throughout the body with the goal of reaching homeostasis, where everything is in balance and performing optimally.
If your system has a depleted supply of CB2 receptors, CBD’s ability to stall their breakdown will help increase your supply, which makes them more available throughout the body. When you regularly supply your endocannabinoid system with CBD, you’re helping the system perform optimally, which keeps pain, inflammation, and hormonal levels away from chronic inflammatory disease levels.
