CBD is the non-psychoactive Cannabinoid that is extracted as an oil form directly from the Marijuana (Hemp) plant. It is making headlines worldwide as a true candidate to replace many prescription drugs; partly due to its negligible recorded side effects and efficient interaction with our body that result in a substantial improvement of life quality. At the same time, it helps achieve holistic well being – particularly for women.
CBD has the ability to counteract and lessen the effects of numerous conditions that are unique to a women’s body. Women face symptoms that are unique to their own physique. The most common ones are Migraines, Stress & Anxiety, Nausea, Inflammation, and Sleep Disorders caused by PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome), Hormonal Imbalance, and Cramps.
CBD vs. PMS Symptoms
In the fight against the harsh symptoms of PMS, CBD fights back by providing quick and sufficient relief to the Physical and Mental struggles that rudely tag along.
On the Mental side women are exposed to mood swings, stress and anxiety that affect their abilities to control and balance feelings and emotions. CBD helps moderate mood irregularities mainly by keeping Cortisol (“Stress Hormone”) levels under control to promote overall mental health.
The Physical side consists of endless symptoms such as Bloating, Cramps, Tender/Swollen breasts, Hormonal Imbalance (weight gain, menstrual irregularities, vaginal atrophy, loss of hair) and Digestive issues (chronic fatigue, nausea, constipation and acute abdominal pain).
CBD interacts with receptors located in our brain that regulate pain perception and neurotransmitters that are responsible for hormone regulation and production. In other words CBD tricks our body’s own sense of pain and discomfort while maintaining critical balance of all internal systems/organs.
CBD has also profound effects on the functionality of the Reproductive System, Lactation, Metabolism, Appetite, Cravings and on the Endocrine System by regulating the pituitary hormone emissions.
CBD helps Maintain Normal Cholesterol Levels by preventing the manufacture of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which is the type of Cholesterol that is hazardous to your health. (Can cause clogged veins).
Looks & Beauty
We are at a point where CBD is a popular component in anti-aging serums and stress-reducing supplements, all of which revive and improve our overall appearance. CBD enhances skin repair and cell regeneration, it has anti-aging effects, contributes to stronger hair follicles which results in healthier hair, reduces the appearance of dark spots, reduced stress, anxiety, and their direct negative effects.
Due to its anti-anxiety properties, CBD helps you feel less nervous when engaging in sexual activities and heighten your sensory awareness, which means you’ll experience orgasms at a higher intensity.
Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia
Women on average experience more symptoms of insomnia than men do. Interrupted and/or not enough hours of sleep slowly but surely damages your health and wellness. In addition to lack of focus and clumsiness, sleep deprivation drastically weakens both your body (Immune System) and skin. When you miss out on sleep, your body releases Cortisol which breaks down your skin’s collagen – that is the protein that keeps your skin both elastic and smooth to the touch. Not getting enough sleep also reduces overall muscle mass and weakens your bones due to the insufficient Human Growth Hormone production in your body.
CBD works more as a tool that helps restore the health of your body and mind back to a state of balance, then maintains that balance by acting as a preventative measure against degradation. Combined with a shift towards a healthier lifestyle, the results are absolutely astounding.
