Women who suffer from severe menstrual cramps have probably tried everything - prescription pain medication, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, massage, changes in diet, and regular exercise; however, to the rescue of females everywhere comes CBD… something you probably haven’t tried yet.

What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a hemp-derived compound that offers tremendous potential for improving mood, lower inflammation and reducing pain. It is a natural substance most commonly used in products like oils, powders, topicals, and edibles to aid in feelings of relaxation and calmness and now the relief of period pain.
Contrary to its association with Mary Jane, CBD does not get you high. The cannabis plant is made of 80+ cannabinoids, but there are two main players that have caught the attention of many: CBD and THC. CBD is the non-psychoactive portion of the plant, which means there is no euphoria effect but a ton of therapeutic benefits. Once CBD is extracted from the plant many people can benefit from it.
How does CBD help with Menstrual Symptoms?
When Aunt Flo is arriving, PMS and period cramps can make you want to curl up in bed with a heating pad and leave you unable to tend to your everyday responsibilities. That is why Flow Lite’s CBD based formula is here to rescue you. By interacting with the receptors in our endocannabinoid system, CBD will help to alleviate mood swings, breast tenderness, anxiety, stress, bloating, extreme tiredness, fatigue, constipation, cravings and every woman’s enemy - menstrual cramps - before, during, and after your period.
CBD can also help manage hormonal imbalance. Hormones are chemical messengers that are produced in the endocrine system and play a vital role in regulating functions in our body, including metabolism, growth and reproduction. It is when your body produces too much or too little of a hormone that one is experiencing a hormonal imbalance. Hormones fluctuations can occur naturally during puberty, menopause and perimenopause, but can also be caused by toxins or an unbalanced lifestyle, according to the Women in Balance Institute. Symptoms include menstrual irregularity, weight gain, mood swings, vaginal atrophy and hair loss.
Fortunately, studies have found that CBD can help those suffering from hormonal imbalance. In a study done on the effect of CBD on plasma prolactin, growth hormone and cortisol, researchers found that CBD helped to regulate the secretion of the stress activating hormone - cortisol.
Another study done on the function of CBD receptors in the neuroendocrine regulation of hormone secretion, researchers found that “CBD exposure could have profound effects on the function of the reproductive system, lactation, metabolism, and on the endocrine stress axis.” Additionally, they concluded that these effects are consistent with CBD’s impact on the brain neurotransmitters involved with the regulation of pituitary hormone secretion.
In simpler terms, as CBD influences the regulation of hormones, it can act as a preventative measure against hormone imbalance. It helps to restore the health and body to a state of balance and then maintain that balance.
CBD is a natural way to aid in the monthly pains of being a strong independent woman, but if you continue living an unbalanced lifestyle you would not be taking full advantage of all of the supplements’ health benefits.
If you pair CBD with a healthier overall lifestyle, the impact on your menstrual health will be amazing.
