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.
The human body has an active endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors. Its main receptors, CB1 and CB2, run throughout our bodies and studies have shown that they are instrumental to the body running smoothly. CB1 receptors are found particularly in the brain and co-ordinate emotions, mood, thinking and memories. CB2 receptors are common in the immune system and affect inflammation and pain.
Our body produces cannabinoids naturally for this system but sometimes doesn’t produce enough and CBD has been shown to be helpful in balancing this. CBD can provide the body with additional cannabinoids to assist the ECS with maintaining the body’s harmony.
Research has shown that the benefits of CBD can include easing the symptoms of some of these problems that women 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.”
