About CBD for women, menstruations (PMS) and menopause

Many women have to deal with symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) during their reproductive years, and menopause in later years. For both of these conditions, the underlying cause of most of the symptoms is due to an imbalance in female hormones like progesterone and estrogen.

Common symptoms of PMS include:

  • Swollen and/or tender breasts

  • Lower abdominal cramping & pain

  • Mood swings and/or feeling irritable, angry or hostile

  • Feeling tense, anxious, sad or depressed and can include crying spells

  • Problems with sleeping which can include either too much or too little

Common symptoms of Menopause include:

  • Irregular and eventual lack of periods

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Hot flashes & night sweats

  • Sleep problems

  • Mood changes

How does CBD help women with menstruations (PMS) and menopause

The hemp plant’s cannabinoids in general (incl. tetrahydrocannabinol or THC) as well as cannabidiol (CBD) in particular have potential health benefits for women, with little to no side-effects. Scientists hypothesize that the balancing, analgesic, anxiolytic and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are helpful in treating the underlying causes of many of the symptoms common in both PMS and menopause. The benefits of CBD for women, whether in the form of CBD oil, hemp oil or other hemp extracts, are promising although none of the results have been supported by clinical trials to date, whether in the United States or in any other country. CBD is delivering is helping with women’s health through:

1) Its ability to regulate the endocannabinoid system (ECS)


CBD creates a state of balance within the body by interacting with the ECS and its receptors, helping to reduce many of the symptoms characteristic of PMS and menopause.  

2) Its ability to regulate mood


Scientists have found that because of the way that CBD interacts with the ECS and regulate endocannabinoid levels as well as modulate serotonin secretion (i.e. impacts the nervous system), it can be very effective in helping with anxiety and mood swings.

3) Its ability to regulate sleep


CBD has the ability to promote REM-sleep, the sleep-stage which is thought to especially benefit emotional health.

3) Its ability to reduce pain


CBD also balance anandamide and FAAH, the endocannabinoids responsible for blocking (chronic) pain signals while regulating the CB2 receptors responsible for pain processing.

Recommended CBD product types and dosage for PMS and menopause

CBD PRODUCT TYPES


It's important to use a high-quality product and do so regularly, when using CBD to alleviate the symptoms of Women’s health, menstruations or menopause. There are many CBD products on the market but we would typically recommend the following:

  • Sublingual Treatments & Ingestibles


    For daily prevention and maintenance we recommend using a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD oil, tincture or gel cap. This will allow for a slow onset of action that lasts throughout the day.

  • Vaping & Smoking


    For acute flare-ups of premenstrual or menopausal symptoms, vaping CBD or smoking CBD rich flowers can provide almost immediate relief due to its fast onset of action.  

  • Topical Treatments


    For localized pain, a topical such as a cream or lotion to deliver CBD directly to the affected area is recommended.

CBD DOSAGE


CBD for PMS and menopause is very personal and dependent on the type and severity of symptoms. The general rule of thumb for CBD dosage applies: that is 25 mg of CBD, taken twice daily.If no results are felt with this dosage, the serving size can be increased by another 25 mg every 3-4 weeks until the optimal dosage is found.
