Ladies, let’s be real. For many of us, “that time of the month” isn’t always the most welcomed week. PMS, period pain, cramps, mood swings and more are all a very real part of many women’s menstrual cycle. For some, it’s worse than others. All periods, after all, are not created equal.

Whether you’re one of the 5–10% of women who experience period pain so severe that it disrupts your normal life, simply seem a little moodier than normal with mild abdominal discomfort during your period or fall somewhere in between…CBD could help.

With the soaring popularity of CBD, some women have discovered just how beneficial this beneficial cannabinoid can be when it comes to their monthly cycle. Whether you’re a teen, in your mid-20s, are close to middle age or are moving into menopause, this article is for you. Using CBD for your period could just change the way you experience your period forever.

The Ultimate Guide to Using CBD for Your Period

Were you aware that most women (over 90%) report getting some symptoms of PMS a week or two before their period? Then there’s the day your period actually starts, which can bring intensified symptoms of the symptoms you’ve already been experiencing for a week or more. About 40% of women report symptoms of PMS on top of pain experienced during their period.

For some women, period pain is so serious that it causes them to miss work, school or other regular activities. For others, not so much. No matter where you fall on the period pain spectrum, using CBD for your period can have some serious advantages.

What Is PMS?

To really get a solid understanding of how to use CBD for your period, it’s important to have a solid understanding of what your period truly encompasses.

PMS is defined as a set of physical and psychological symptoms that start anywhere from a few days to two weeks before a woman gets her monthly period.

Physical symptoms of PMS can include:

  • Breast tenderness
  • Abdominal pain
  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Water retention (bloating)
  • Sleep problems
  • Digestive issues
  • Skin blemishes
  • Food cravings

Psychological symptoms of PMS can include:

  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insecurity
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of emotional control

What Causes PMS?

What causes PMS isn’t exactly clear. Why some women experience extreme PMS and others sail through their monthly cycle without a second thought isn’t completely understood. It’s believed, however, that fluctuations in hormones during a woman’s monthly cycle play a key role.

While women might not exactly have abnormal hormone levels during this time of the month, they could be particularly sensitive to the substances produced by the breakdown of progesterone, a hormone released in the second half of the menstrual cycle, just before the period starts.

Progesterone is also thought to affect neurotransmitters, specifically levels of serotonin. Research shows that lower serotonin levels that occur after ovulation are thought to give rise to symptoms of PMS.

Whatever the cause, if you experience PMS or discomfort during your menstrual cycle, you know exactly why this time of the month isn’t the most welcomed. Let’s take a look at how CBD might help.

Help With Painful Menstrual Cramps

Ask any woman what the worst part about having her period is and 9 times out of 10 you’re likely going to hear about her menstrual cramps. Most ladies who have a period will experience menstrual cramps to some extent in their lifetime. For some, these cramps are excruciating. Other women might just feel a hint of abdominal discomfort.

To understand how CBD can help ease menstrual cramps, it’s important to understand exactly what cramps are caused by. Menstrual cramps occur when fluctuating hormones cause muscle contractions in the womb that encourage the uterus to shed its lining. If you can stop these muscle contractions, you can stop the cramps from occurring.

While there have been very few, if any, studies on the effectiveness of CBD specifically for menstrual cramps, there are studies that show how beneficial the cannabinoid can be as a muscle relaxant. Transdermal application of CBD has shown to reduce both inflammation and pain-related behavior, which is why many women turn to CBD topicals during their period.

Rubbing a CBD salve or cream onto the abdomen when experiencing period cramps could be exactly what’s needed to alleviate period cramps once and for all.

Ease General Period Discomfort

Lower back pain. Leg cramps. Headaches. All are some of the symptoms that accompany general period discomfort. Whether you feel them all at once in the worst way every day of the weeks leading up to and the days during your period, or these symptoms come and go during your monthly flow, CBD could help reduce some of your discomfort.

There have been several studies that indicate the efficacy of CBD for the management of chronic pain and difficult-to-treat pain. Most women experience some type of general discomfort during their period. If you’re looking to ditch Midol PMS for a more natural alternative, CBD could help ease the general period discomfort you experience.

Whether taking a CBD oil tincture to help with a stubborn headache or a CBD softgel in the morning to reduce the intensity of your cramps or the lower back pain you experience throughout the day, CBD could help immensely. Taking CBD at the first signs that period discomfort is about to rear its ugly head can do wonders to offer relief exactly when you need it most.

Reduce Anxiety, Mood Swings and Other Psychological Period Discomfort

Ahhhh, the emotional roller coaster we often ride when on our periods — ladies, we know you can relate. Anxiety. Irritability. Happy one moment and in tears the next. Insecurity. Seriously, we can’t be the only ones who can’t find anything that we feel cute in to wear during our monthly cycle, can we? And we know that we’re not the only women who snap at our loved ones (and others) when we’re on our periods.

Let’s talk about how CBD can help reduce the anxiety, mood swings and other psychological feelings of madness we feel during menstruation.

A 2015 article published in the journal Neurotherapeutics shows that “current evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders.” In another 2014 study, it was indicated that CBD contains antidepressant-like and anxiolytic-type effects, meaning it works well for both depression and anxiety.

Looking to bring balance back to an otherwise unbalanced mood during your monthly cycle? Try CBD. Whether you take a vape pen with you on to go to puff on when those overwhelming feelings get the best of us or take a tincture in the morning to help prevent them from happening in the first place, CBD could be just what the period doctor ordered to balance your mood and reduce the psychological discomfort of your period.

So, Is CBD the Period Relief You Need?

Love it or hate it, your period is here to stay (for quite a few years), ladies. If you experience serious discomfort in the form of relentless cramps and severe psychological swings, using CBD during your period has the potential to help quite a bit.

Will CBD help you during your period? Periods aren’t the same for everyone, so we can’t say that CBD will work the same for everyone either. However, from easing lower back pain and cramps to alleviating some of the anxiety, depression and mood swings that are a big part of having a period, CBD has the potential to help.

    “Wonderful Group to work with. Everything from fantastic products, prices, customer support, beautiful packaging to fast, friendly service. Joy Organics is family and feels like family! And why it is included in my line of ‘Paulines Preferred’.”

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

    -Robin Hood / Lone Star Organic

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
