Lower-back pain, cramps, nausea, throbbing in lower abdomen… Are these symptoms all synonymous to menstruation for you? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. You don’t have to live in agony until you hit menopause. CBD products are all the rage these days, and there’s a reason why. It’s a well-known pain reliever and yes, it can even help relieve the worse period pains.
How can CBD help relieve menstrual pain?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a chemical compound from the Cannabid sativa plant, also known as marijuana. But rest assured, CBD doesn’t get you high. The cannabis plant is made up of two main players: CBD and THC. The former is the non-psychoactive part of the plant and the latter is. While THC will, in short, get you high, CBD will bring you into a state of relaxation and calmness, like after a good yoga class.
That’s why CBD is a great holistic remedy for many different things, including period-related pains. 90% of women experience physical discomfort during their menstrual cycles. CBD soothes moods, stress and physical pain so you can finally say good-bye to unwanted side effects.
