Cbd for menstrual cramps

A few drops of this potion can help alleviate cramps by reducing inflammation, which is the root cause of pain. Consider yourself a mixologist? Our original , citrus and peppermint-flavoured CBD oil drops make a great addition to your morning coffee, anti-PMS smoothies or even that well-earned after-work mocktail.

Because just because we’re on our period, doesn’t mean we don’t want to have fun! CBD can help you enjoy sex more when you’re on your period by reducing tension in the pelvic floor and relieving pain from cramps or penetration. A few sexier benefits (you’ll be pleased to know) can include increased sensitivity, relaxation – which can lead to stronger orgasms! – and in some cases, a boost to your sex drive. Let’s go!

3. In a Warm Bath

If you’re not a fan of the taste of CBD, you can also add our pure CBD oils to topical rubs or balms that you can massage directly into the skin. This is a popular option if you wish to soothe any achy areas that are causing discomfort during your period – such as your abdomen, groin or lower back – as it gets to work directly on the affected area. CBD can also help you say goodbye to your hormonal acne, as it is great at reducing sebum production, one of the main causes of acne. Just add a couple of drops into your moisturiser and apply (remember to cleanse first!)

8. In a Lube

CBD may help reduce unpleasant period-related symptoms such as cramping, nausea and anxiety.

“I would just curl up with a hot water bottle, or have a hot bath to try to get some relief,” she said. “The advice is to exercise but it can be impossible when you are in so much pain.”

Hormonal birth control can reduce the severity of menstrual cramps but Simona says this method has not eased her agony.

“Whenever I’ve been to GPs about it, I’ve been told the pain is ‘normal’ and part and parcel of being a woman,” said Simona, who is originally from Lithuania and living in south west London.

Period pain caused by underlying conditions

For reasons not entirely clear, menstrual pain is most common among young women in their teens and twenties; it usually moderates with age and often improves after giving birth.

But conditions aside, it’s not known why some women experience more period pain than others. It may be that some women have a build-up of prostaglandins, which means they experience stronger contractions.

Told the pain was ‘normal’

“I saw the effects in about two months, and my cycle has become more regular now.

The model and interior designer told i : “The pain was so intense, it was a throbbing or cramping pain in my lower abdomen. The pain would radiate to my lower back and thighs.
