CBD For Menstrual Cramps & Symptom Relief
CBD oil for menstrual cramps, pain, and PMS relief.
We’ve developed two very unique CBD oil formulas that are specifically tailored to the two types of period pain (dysmenorrhea).
Please take a moment to read & fully understand which of the CBD oil for menstrual relief products below are right for you.
Understanding The Two Types & Causes of Menstrual Pain
Every month the lining of a woman’s womb is shed. In order to properly shed this lining, the body tells the muscles of the womb to contract and relax in a very irregular rhythm.
This abnormal rhythmic movement aids the tissue lining to detach itself more readily and flows out of the woman’s body causing a bloody discharge.
These irregular muscle contractions are the common cause to painful menstrual cramps.
According to PubMed Health, there are two types of menstrual/period-caused pain:
- Primary dysmenorrhea: Period pain caused by the irregular womb muscle contractions
- Secondary dysmenorrhea: Period paid caused by anything else. This may include Benign, fibroids, or polyps growths, endometriosis, and sometimes contraceptive devices that cause a malfunction in the normal flow of the female body
Why Are Women Choosing Cannabidiol For Menstrual Relief?
If you’ve done any type of online surfing concerning CBD, you’ve probably read many, many times that, “medical tests and research concerning CBD, hemp, and cannabis products in connection with (literally any health condition) is very limited.“
If any at all…
Therefore, every article we write takes a tremendous amount of research so don’t let it shock you when we say, the connection of CBD for menstrual cycle relief is indeed still in it’s infancy stage. BUT HAVE NO FEAR! We’ve found some very interesting studies that we are sure will peak your interest.
Nonetheless, many women have found and proclaimed that CBD as well as THC has helped alleviate and/or has aided in taking the edge off of menstrual pain related symptoms. Did you hear how Whoopi Goldberg has started an entire medical marijuana company based strictly on providing THC products to help women with their menstrual pain? Read more…
Heck, even Queen Victoria got down with the cannabis and the reason she took it was because her doctor specifically gave it to her for menstrual cycle symptom associated relief.
Don’t believe us? Just take a look at the picture above… Queen Victoria, in all her royal greatness, is 100% experiencing extremely strong psychoactive effects (super high) in the picture above.
With all jokes aside, through innovative entrepreneurship, many menstrual relief products have hit the market, including “THC tampons”. As you may already know, Cannabidiol Life doesn’t offer any sort of product that could result in our customers getting high. Therefore, we knew we had to shine a light in a dark tunnel, put on our thinking caps, and hit the drawing board as we collectively hit the books.
Medical Research Studies on CBD, PMS, Dysmenorrea, and Endometriosis
We’ve already covered what causes all the menstrual discomfort, now it’s time to find out if CBD can actually relieve menstrual cramps and we are going to indirectly solve this through the citations of the conclusions, summaries, and results of professional medical studies.
Study #1: This test study took place in 2010 and was titled, “Histomorphometric evaluation of cannabinoid receptor and anandamide modulating enzyme expression in the human endometrium through the menstrual cycle.” As on of the first medical attempts to understand the endocannabinoid system in connection with the menstrual cycle of women, the conclusion seemed fairly positive:
“These data indicate that elements of the ‘endocannabinoid system’ coexist in many cell types within the uterus and may provide insight into the sites of action of endogenous and exogenous cannabinoids during endometrial transformation.”
Study #2: This was a study that was conducted back in 2012 with a growing medical understanding of the endocannabinoid system and endometriosis. Although this wasn’t a “first of it’s kind” type of study, it was however, very broad as it allowed variable circumstances and the results speak for themselves…
“Thus, more careful and comprehensive studies are surely needed to critically evaluate the possibility of targeting the cannabinoid system in endometriosis.“
Study #3: This was a study conducted four years later (2016) and was led by a few of the same medical professionals as the one listed immediately above. The intent of this particular study was to figure out if there was a connection between “Elevated Systemic Levels of Endocannabinoids and Related Mediators Across the Menstrual Cycle in Women With Endometriosis.”
Here is the summary of this study:
“The association of increased circulating AEA and 2-AG with decreased local CB1 expression in endometriosis suggests a negative feedback loop regulation, which may impair the capability of these mediators to control pain. These preliminary data suggest that the pharmacological manipulation of the action or levels of these mediators may offer an alternative option for the management of endometriosis-associated pain.“
Interesting Bonus Study: This was about the importance of proper endocannabinoid signaling through CB1 receptors and female reproductive events.
“Our studies demonstrate that under normal physiological conditions, endocannabinoid signaling through CB1 is crucial to various female reproductive events, which include development of embryos, their oviductal transport, and ultimately their homing and implantation in the receptive uterus“
Summary & Final Thoughts
While CBD has shown amazing potential for many various symptoms, we must clearly state that our CBD products and CBD in general, has not been proven to potentially relieve, relieve, nor cure any severe condition or medical condition, including menstrual pain. The medical studies above are to simply comprehensively share the summaries of particular medical studies conducted by medical professionals.
Everything else is an expressed summarization of our personal conducted research and the information provided is designed to support, NEVER replace, the relationship between you and your physician.
We highly recommend and insist that you consult with a physician before using our or any CBD products in general. A Doctor’s advice should always be sought after before making any changes to your diet by consuming non-FDA approved dietary supplements.
