CBD & Period Pains:
how it all works
Period pains are not what us ladies look forward to when riding the crimson waves.
Menstruation cramps are inconvenient for most women and can even stop some from going to college, university, and work. Shark week should never stop you living your life to the fullest!
More and more consumers are using CBD throughout their cycle, but what’s the science behind it all?
Why do we get period pain?
Hormones in the body called prostaglandins are known to cause period pain. They are also released when a woman is giving birth. This hormone causes the uterus to contract and shed its lining, better known as menstrual blood. Some women experience debilitating cramps, rendering more ‘traditional’ forms of pain relief absolute. Other pelvic conditions, such as endometriosis, can provoke even more painful cramps.
How does CBD work?
CBD or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid originating from the cannabis plant. There is a wealth of research into the effects of CBD on the human body. It is suggested, CBD can help the body produce endocannabinoids which prevent the release of inflammatory proteins known as cytokines.
This can relax your muscles, relieving the pain coming from contracted muscles surrounding the uterus. Blood then flows back to the area, again aiding the pain relief process.
