If CBD is considered the feel-good molecule, it’s for a good reason. It helps women cope better with their daily lives and find moments of serenity and well-being. Here is everything CBD can do for us women.
CBD relieves period pain
Most women take medication, but there are natural solutions that can provide lasting relief from these pains.
CBD has analgesic properties that work on many levels. CBD is what is called a cannabinoid. It is a molecule derived from hemp that interacts with endocannabinoid receptors that can be found throughout our body, including the reproductive system. Since ancient Egypt until Queen Victoria in the 19th century, cannabis and therefore the cannabinoids it contains were used to relieve menstrual pain but also migraines that can occur during this period.
Today, CBD taken in the form of sublingual oil or herbal tea is increasingly popular with women looking for natural solutions to help them find well-being and serenity during their periods.
Cannabidiol soothes stress
Women are often subjected to what is called the mental load. They are many to have to manage a lot of tasks at the personal and professional level: household chores, education of children, a stressful job … The accumulation of all this load can be a source of stress and anxiety.
Relieving this stress is then a priority in order not to see its mental and/or physical health deteriorate. For this, CBD can be of great help. When you feel overly stressed or feel your anxieties overwhelming you, take a few moments for yourself. Put a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue and relax. CBD will alleviate stress quickly and help you deal with overwork and mental strain.
CBD treats skin problems
Women are often prone to skin problems. This can be caused by stress, hormones, food… CBD is a Swiss Army knife that is becoming increasingly popular in cosmetics because it works on many problems. CBD regulates the production of sebum and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions. It is therefore the natural solution to fight against acne and blemishes in general.
Many women suffering from eczema, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis have noticed that CBD soothes inflammation and relieves them effectively.
In addition, CBD slows down skin aging and reduces wrinkles by binding to free radicals responsible for the decrease in collagen production.
