 A CBD/Hemp Oil Guide to Combat Female-Related Conditions


Women multitask like it’s an Olympic sport. We are all trying to find a comfortable balance in our lives, whether we’re juggling home and work or focusing on our personal lives and health. Ideally, we’d love to be eating home-cooked, organic superfoods and rocking the look of the season, while maintaining our daily yoga and meditation practice. We’ve set the bar pretty high, so it’s no wonder that sometimes our nerves get a little frayed. That’s where CBD oil comes in. We want women to be their healthiest and happiest versions of themselves all of the time.

 

CBD Oil - Benefits for Women

So, why has there been such a media frenzy about CBD oil? It began with the amazing stories of children with treatment-resistant epilepsy whose seizures were reduced to almost zero after taking CBD oil. Since then, hundreds of scientific studies have been underway investigating CBD’s therapeutic potential. So far, most of the research has been at the preclinical stage, meaning the studies are conducted on cell cultures and animal models. Little by little, more studies are taking place on humans, which have begun to confirm many of the findings from the preclinical trials. Initial studies show that women may be greatly affected by cannabis and cannabinoids than men. Let’s  explore just a few of the benefits of CBD hemp oil for women.


Using CBD For Women’s Health

There are a number of ways to utilize CBD oil that can improve your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health. There is still a long way to go with approved research and studies — however, new information continues to emerge that paints a better picture of how CBD can be useful. Incorporating it into your lifestyle can boost your mood, improve symptoms and even help you rest better.


CBD for Anxiety and Depression

Women are almost twice as likely to suffer from depression than men. Women also tend to be affected by depression for different reasons—namely due to reproductive hormones, how they respond to stress, and the social pressures that affect them.

CBD may be the light at the end of the tunnel. Cannabinoids are a kind of ‘happy molecule’ that the body makes naturally when things are going well or when we’re feeling relaxed and at ease. These molecules are also released when we exercise (or when we eat chocolate!).

In fact, the main cannabinoid molecule is called anandamide, which translates as "bliss molecule” in Sanskrit. By binding to the special receptors in our body (which are kind of like docking stations), cannabinoids help stimulate those feel-good responses. This, in turn, helps the digestive system function properly, reduces inflammation, and even decreases pain—all while maintaining a healthy, happy mood.

Further research suggests that CBD’s cannabinoids help to prevent anandamide from being broken down. The more anandamide in our body, the better we feel.

CBD for Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a painful condition that can persist throughout a woman’s life—even into menopause. It occurs when the lining of the uterus (known as the endometrium) grows outside the uterus in other reproductive organs. It can even be found in the bowels, kidneys, and rectum. This happens at the beginning of a period and results in painful, chronic inflammation. Symptoms include heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, constipation, and nausea.

But the ability of CBD to reduce pain and inflammation in the body may mean it can help those who suffer from endometriosis. CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid receptors, which are located throughout your nervous system, reproductive system, and immune system. CBD binds with these receptors, which in turn provides powerful anti-inflammatory effects throughout the body, reducing pain and muscle spasms.

Research actually shows that CBD has the power to suppress the body’s inflammatory response simply by activating these receptors in our brain. This could spell great relief for women suffering from endometriosis each month.

CBD for Menstrual Cramps

In the same way that CBD can alleviate endometriosis pain, it can also bring relief to those awful period cramps. What’s more, CBD is a natural (and potentially safer) alternative to NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories).

Like NSAIDs, CBD works by inhibiting the prostaglandin-producing enzyme that causes pain and inflammation in the body. But while NSAIDs can cause all sorts of harmful side effects, CBD does not. This is because CBD prefers to inhibit COX-2 over COX-1. This simply means that you can benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD without getting an upset tummy.

What’s more, studies show that the ability of CBD to target certain receptors located in smooth muscle can help muscle tissues relax. Much of the pain experienced during menstruation is caused by contractions of the smooth muscle lining the uterus. As a result, CBD can play a major role in relieving those painful cramps by encouraging the muscles in the abdomen to relax and stop clenching.

If you’re a woman with the usual ‘female’ problems that come with hormones, CBD oil could be the answer you have been looking for.

CBD For PMS and Hormonal Imbalances

No matter what age you’ve reached in this thing called life, achieving hormonal balance seems to be an impossible task, particularly for women. While there are no conclusive scientific studies to say that CBD helps PMS and other hormone-related conditions, we do know that it can alleviate some of their symptoms. Thanks to CBD’s activation of the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor, anxiety and stress levels associated with the menstrual cycle are typically reduced. CBD also has other properties which come in handy for period cramps such as regulating production of cortisol, which is one of the main stress hormones.

CBD For Menopause

CBD’s ability to help reduce the experience of anxiety also makes it a useful tool for weathering the choppy waters of menopause. Aside from help with the emotional components, it also has practical physical applications as well. The most important benefit could come in preventing osteoporosis, the thinning of bones that can happen with the hormonal changes after menopause. Studies show that CBD may help improve bone strength and speed up the healing process after fractures.

CBD For Sleep

Finding ways to calm our nervous system like meditation, yoga or relaxation techniques can help, but so can diet and the supplements we take. According to a recent study, people report improved sleep when taking CBD oil on a regular basis. But it’s important to remember that depending on the CBD dosage you take, it can have opposite effects when it comes to sleep. Evidence suggests that at low doses, CBD can create a more wakeful state, while higher doses can make people feel drowsy. Either way, as a rule of thumb, it’s not advisable to take CBD oil just before bedtime until you know how your body reacts.

CBD for Mood

One of the most common reasons people take CBD is to help improve their mood. Scientists know that CBD activates the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor responsible for regulating mood and anxiety. Studies also show that CBD can cause neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells, which is essentially helping the brain to find new ways of thinking and operating. There have been a number of small pilot studies on subjects with social anxiety, who were given CBD before performing a simulated public speaking test. Most found that CBD helped them feel less anxious and more clear-headed when performing the task.

CBD for Autoimmune Conditions

Autoimmune conditions affect approximately 24 million people in the United States. Autoimmune conditions are a collection of illnesses where the immune system, rather than fighting off external threats, starts to attack our own bodies. Types of autoimmune conditions include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Diabetes type 1. Common symptoms include chronic and often debilitating discomfort, inflammation, and extreme exhaustion. There are studies like this one and this one that suggest that CBD may have a positive effect on regulating immune responses in the body.

CBD for Psoriasis and Eczema

Firstly, let’s talk about CBD and its potential in the treatment of psoriasis. What is psoriasis? Psoriasis disease is a chronic, immune-mediated systemic condition that results from inflammation and causes plaques and scales on the skin. Studies have shown that CBD has the potential in the treatment of this condition.


Next, eczema is another unfortunate skin-related condition from which millions of people also suffer. Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is categorized by an itchy rash on the skin which often develops in early childhood. It has been shown to be more common for people with a family history of the affliction. 


Thankfully, with more and more hemp research opportunities available, we are now seeing CBD as a potentially effective agent to help treat eczema symptoms. Not only has CBD been studied to reduce itching and help clear skin, but it has also been shown to aid with sleep loss associated with the disorder.
