Can CBD help Endometriosis? Here we talk about the condition and the benefits that CBD can bring.
Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and Fallopian tubes. Endometriosis can affect women of any age. It's a long-term condition that can have a significant impact on your life.
Endometriosis has been demonstrably overlooked. With up to 176 million women worldwide living with endometriosis (the second most commonly diagnosed gynecological disorder in the UK)
Despite one in ten women living with endometriosis, it takes on average eight years for it to be diagnosed. A chronic disease that brings with it severe life impacting pain during periods, sex, bowel movements and urination, chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, depression and anxiety, treatment has hardly progressed in 100 years
There is growing evidence to suggest that CBD can be beneficial to some people suffering with endometriosis as many people with chronic pain find benefits from CBD oil and CBD topicals.
There are cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies, mainly in the nervous system, the immune system and organs but they are also found in the endometrium. CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors helping bring balance.
Inflammation is one of the most significant causes of endometriosis pain, this is lessened by the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, There are also mild analgesic properties in CBD, which is important in helping to reduce pain
We also know that Endometriosis can cause other problems like anxiety and depression both of which can be helped with CBD
