The health of women differs from that of men in many unique ways and is referred to as Women’s health. At each stage of a woman’s life, there are important preventative health care steps to follow. Many women may neglect health care for a number of reasons, however, in the end, it comes down to whether or not you wish to make yourself a priority. After putting so much energy into caring for others, it is time we women deserve the level of care back towards ourselves, with some of the benefits CBD can offer women's health, it should be added to your self-care routine.
CBD in recent years has become widely available and people are turning to this natural product more and more as they start to understand how beneficial it can be in supporting your health daily. Studies are now suggesting that CBD may benefit female health and improve the overall quality of life for lots of reasons. Here we explain why -
What is CBD
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is an active compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. It's a naturally occurring substance and can impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.
Benefits of CBD for Women's Health
Research has shown that the benefits of CBD can include easing the symptoms of some of these problems that females face:
- Periods + Hormone Balance
- Perimenopause + menopause
- Anxiety + depression
- Sleep + sex
- Chronic pain
- Gut Health
- Skin Problems
Although currently the research into CBD for this area is in its early days, there are promising reports that women are finding benefit for symptoms including stress, anxiety, and insomnia. It has also been found to have different therapeutic properties, including as an anti-inflammatory and pain reduction.
A Doctor has also said that “We have cannabinoid receptors in our uterus and throughout the female reproductive tract, and we also have them in the brain area that deals with the stress response and hormone control—the hypothalamus. This part of the brain talks to our adrenal glands, thyroid, and ovaries to help regulate hormone balance, which directly affects our symptoms. As such, CBD can help modulate the stress response via this system and is also an anti-inflammatory.”
When to take CBD and how to take CBD
Understanding some of the benefits is key to understanding ways to take CBD. How the body absorbs CBD will vary depending on the product you take. Using CBD oil either with a tincture or mist sprays directly under the tongue means that the CBD will be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Capsules and gummies mean that CBD is absorbed through the stomach, and topical creams and lotions are absorbed through the skin directly where they have been applied.
CBD can be used at time of the day, choosing the time you use CBD will depend on what you are using it for. Mornings may help you balance for the day ahead, during the day may help relieve stress building it up and using it in the evening may help relaxation and sleep. For support with pain and anxiety, maintaining a daily routine with CBD is very important.
