Did you know that by interacting with the receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD CAN actually alleviate many conditions women navigate every day: mood swings, cramps, anxiety, stress, breast tenderness, bloating, fatigue, cravings… and hormone imbalance!
In one study, they found that the effects of CBD on plasma prolactin, growth hormones, and cortisol, CBD helped to regulate cortisol secretion!
In another study, researchers said: cannabinoid exposure could have profound effects on the function of the reproductive system, lactation, metabolism, and the endocrine stress axis.”
Hemp is naturally packed with omega fatty acids and high in gamma-linolenic acid which is known to help regulate hormones.
Our hormones are more imbalanced now than ever before, because of the food we eat and our modern environment impacting hormones, libido, and mood.
SO HOW CBD OIL CAN AFFECT PMS SYMPTOMS
When it comes to reducing the common symptoms of PMS, evidence for the use of CBD is much stronger.
(And more positive!)
Inflammation is the primary driver behind the pain and discomfort many women experience around the start of their period. And there are several studies that show CBD has a positive effect on reducing systemic inflammation.
CBD Oil may also be able to help reduce those mood swings, irritability, and anxiety that make getting our periods that difficult to endure.
CBD has been shown to act on various receptors in the brain to produce calming, restful, and anti-anxiety effects in animal models. And while we can’t directly translate the results of animal studies to humans, research like this can give us an idea of how CBD might affect our own moods.
Keeping the endocannabinoid system balanced is essential.
I believe in taking CBD every day for this reason, just as you would a multivitamin.
But....I also suggest Working to uncover the underlying cause of why you’re experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance in the first place will be so much more valuable than stopping at simply masking the symptoms.
And once you know why those symptoms are happening, you’ll be more empowered to make the lifestyle changes required to help resolve those symptoms at the root.
