Discover the benefits of CBD oil for women
One of the most surprising benefits of our journey into the cannabis business has been the knowledge we’ve acquired about CBD. Pure CBD is found throughout the seeds, stalk and flowers of cannabis plants and has been shown to have significant antioxidant and neuroprotective properties. Yep, that’s right. Our government has a patent on cannabis. As it turns out, men, women and children of all ages are using CBD oils for ALL KINDS OF THINGS
Women, in particular, have a special relationship with cannabis - and for good reason. Not only do women produce cannabinoids in breast milk but females also have more CBD receptors than our male counterparts. And oh, by the way…we don’t think it’s any surprise the cannabis plant is a female. ;) CBD is showing up in skincare, personal lubricants and protein shakes. It seems the benefits are endless but is it really all it's cracked up to be? The answer is a clear 'Hell Yes!' for us but we'll let you decide for yourself.
From period pain to menopause, women are finding relief with CBD’s. There is no doubt that a few tokes on a good indica strain of marijuana can make all your period woes disappear but let’s face it: Most of us can’t walk into work high as a kite just because your monthly visitor arrived.
Topical CBD ointments can work wonders but doubling up on pure CBD’s can work magic for your body and mind. According to Dr. Axe, CBD’s not only reduce pain and inflammation when taken internally but also stimulates anandamide levels. Anandamide is also known as the ‘Bliss Molecule’ responsible for helping achieve a state of heightened happiness. Who doesn’t want more of that?
Dr. Michele Ross, Neuroscientist and founder of IMPACT Network explains it best when making the connection between the reproductive organs and CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies. “When anandamide levels drop, we might feel moody or irritable, crave fatty foods, or feel in pain or crampy. Sound familiar? That’s PMS. “
She goes on to say
“Your uterus has the highest levels of anandamide in your whole body. During certain times in your menstrual cycle, like ovulation, your uterus has 100 times more anandamide than your brain does. No wonder why we are feeling our best then!”
The more recent surge of popularity in cannabis infused sexual enhancement products drew attention to cannabis being used not only for sexual health but for menstrual pain and controlling PMS. To that, we say, ‘Bravo!’ The world is a happier place when people are smoking more cannabis and having more sex ;) It is, after all, what piqued our interest in the cannabis industry in the first place.
You know, for as awesome as women are, we certainly get the short end of the stick sometimes. It seems are brain wiring really is different than our male counterparts.
According to the National MS Society, women are at least two to three times more likely to develop the disease. Several studies report cannabis as being an effective treatment for spasticity and improved cognitive function. While the cause of MS is still unknown, scientists believe several different factors may be involved including immune related factors and some types of infectious disease. By keeping the immune system healthy with CBD supplements we can help control the inflammation of the Central Nervous System and keep our bodies humming in a state of homeostasis.
Not to mention….
CBD is oh, so good for your skin
Skip the fancy designer creams. According to Medical Jane, “hemp seed oil is perfectly suited for hair and skin care. Its nutritional value, combined with its moisturizing and replenishing EFA’s, make it one of the best vegetable body care foundations.” Because cannabis oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, the serum provides anti-oxidative properties.
and helps you feel great!
The biggest thing we hear from women using a regular regimen of CBD oils is a general sense of happiness. It’s hard to explain but there is a gradual increase of energy and feeling of well-being that sneaks up on you until one day you simply notice, ‘I feel great!’ you don’t have to have a clinical diagnosis to start feeling better.
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are-using cannabis as part of your everyday health routine will most definitely pay big dividends at any stage of the game.
