CBD for Your Cycle: Easing Period Pain

CBD for Your Cycle: Easing Period Pain

PMS symptoms can be a (literal) pain. Irritability and aches, cramps and cravings, anyone? Lucky for us ladies, CBD is the perfect plant-based match for tackling these monthly struggles.

Say you suffer from lower belly and back pain, or sore and sensitive breasts during your period. CBD is known to support our body’s TRPV1 receptors—which moderate and regulate pain perception—to help desensitize pain, ultimately providing you some relief.

Or if you experience mood swings at that time of the month, studies have shown that CBD interacts with receptors within the limbic system—the part of the brain that deals with emotion, memory and stimulation—which can result in more balanced emotional responses. Plus, CBD has been found to regulate the release of cortisol (i.e. the stress-activating hormone), helping to keep you calm, cool and collected.

If your gut gives you grief while you’re PMS-ing, you’re also in luck as CBD stimulates and enhances our endocannabinoid system, ultimately helping it to do its job better. The endocannabinoid system’s main job is to maintain homeostasis in our body’s key systems, including our digestive system. This is great, because who wants to bloat?

So, suffer no more, and embrace your monthly with a few of our favorite CBD picks for your period.
