How can CBD benefit women specifically?
Can CBD benefit women specifically? Yes, it can. There are many things that differentiate a female body from a male body. Women have different hormones, different hormone fluctuations and happenings in the body that men just don’t experience. Do you know how CBD can help you?
This short guide will help you understand why CBD is beneficial and why it should be a part of your daily regimen for balancing your body.
Uncontrollable emotions and fluctuations in hormone levels can send women on a roller coaster ride until the menopause is complete. Menopause severely disrupts the body’s endocannabinoid system. It is almost impossible for the female body to produce enough cannabinoids during menopause, so the body’s balance is out of sync. Anandamide levels that are too low may cause a female to go into early menopause. The hormone estrogen also needs cannabinoids, and pulls a bit more during the menstrual cycle and during menopause.
Osteoporosis is also more prominent in women after menopause. Bone density starts to decline. What you may not know is that CBD that attaches to CB2 receptors may help slow bone mass loss, and slow the progression of osteoporosis.
Inflammation during the menstrual cycle can cause increased pelvic pain or discomfort. CBD is helpful in reducing inflammation. There are CBD products available that can be used on the upper pelvic region that can help reduce pain and lessen inflammation. Menstrual pain can also play a role in having mood swings/emotional outbursts. So, keeping your body calm and relaxed can also help your mind remain calm and lessen those outbursts. Women are also more likely to experience migraines and headaches during their menstrual and pre-menstrual cycles. CBD may help reduce headaches and/or migraines too.
Women are more likely to develop a mental health disorder, such as depression, than men. CBD can help improve your mood. Mood disorders can also lead to anxiety. CBD is helpful for reducing anxiety and regulating your mood. If you find yourself particularly agitated or irritated, a CBD calming formula may be ideal. These would be options like anxiety, calming or sleep tinctures. Some capsules are designed for overall wellness, which also help calm the body. The product that you choose is solely based upon your preference and individual need.
