Can cannabis help with PMS?

The different symptoms associated with Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) can be quite uncomfortable, some of which cause severe discommodity, which can alter the daily life of women. Given that it occurs each month and its symptoms can last up to several days, it should be well understood and treated efficiently so that the discomfort can be alleviated. Most women specifically turn to it to deal with PMS symptoms, including mood swings. Studies have shown that with people suffering from depression and anxiety CBD has produced positive results.

What is Premenstrual Syndrome?

The term PMS refers to a number of symptoms that women normally suffer in the post-ovulation and post-menstruation period. The physical and emotional symptomatology that occurs is usually different from woman to woman, and it may even alter in future menstrual cycles.

PMS is typically very stressful and generally unpleasant given its variation, therefore it is normal in most women to look for an active way to relieve it.

How does CBD oil help?

Julie Holland, a pharmacologist who has been a long time and founder of the Pot Book project for therapeutic marijuana, said cannabidiol is extremely important for the treatment of irritability and pain during the premenstrual cycle, which are designed to support therapeutic investigations of cannabis. The anti-anxiety properties are strong and it also deals with physical and mental stress and menstrual cramps, which might occur later on. The body has its own endocannabinoid (ECS) system and its own receptor for marijuana. The entire body has cannabinoid receptors – from the brain and central nervous system to the intestines, connective tissue, and nerves – and as a homeostatic regulator with the endocannabinoid system, the body tries to maintain balance in all its cells.

Scientists have called one of the major endocannabinoids ‘ anandamide ‘ – Sanskrit for happiness, showing how this is really supposed to feel. Researchers have found that taking CBD oil promotes better functioning of the body’s internal cannabinoids – helping reduce stress and inflammation in their cells.

While further work is needed on women’s health applications, scientists have concluded that endometriosis patients also have lower cannabinoid receptor concentrations. This contributes to experts saying that CBD oil increasing provide relief. Further studies are available every day to show potential medical applications and the everyday well-being of CBD and marijuana in general for the treatment of certain medical conditions or for the benefit of physical, mental and emotional well-being. It obviously involves its use in treating PMS symptoms.

Cannabidiol oil, in short, is effective and useful in reducing PMS symptoms. Various research findings have validated it and those who have used it have produced successful results.
