How can CBD help to relieve the symptoms of menstruation?

The monthly menstrual cycle causes for a lot of women quite a few symptoms. For one in every ten women, these symptoms are so heavy that they stay at home one or two days when their period starts. CBD can help to relieve this pain and make the life of these women a bit easier.

Pain and nausea

The physical symptoms that can occur just before and during the menstruation can vary a lot. All women know these symptoms: cramps in your belly, pain in your lower back, headache, nausea and even vomiting. Besides this, sleep can also be negatively effected.

Along with the physical symptoms there are also the mental symptoms. When you don’t feel like yourself and your hormones are all over the place, it’s logically that it’s hard to stay cheerful. Source: https://www.apotheek.nl/klachten-ziektes/menstruatieklachten#wat-is-menstruatieklachten

CBD relieves the symptoms

To reduce the physical problems, well known pain killers and anti-inflammatories are often being used. In some cases people suffer so badly from mood changes that they need antidepressants to survive this period. Only a few people know that CBD can help to relieve the symptoms caused by the menstruation.

Known effects of CBD

In previous blogs we wrote about studies that have shown that CBD has a painkilling effect with migraine and pain caused by rheumatism. Also CBD extracts can, like written before, help to relieve nausea and vomiting. We know that CBD works well as an anti-inflammatory and it can help to improve a good night’s sleep. For this reason we recommend you to put a case of one of our (new!) CBD tablets in your purse before that period.
