What CBD Products May Help With PCOS and PMS?
CBD has gained increased popularity as a natural remedy for various conditions . Here we look at Best products for anxiety, PMS, and PCOS
Published June 24, 2021.
PCOS and PMS are common health issues experienced by women. According to research studies, more than 90% of women experience Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). It is also said that 1 in every ten women suffer from PCOS in the UK.
With CBD's popularity on the rise, women have started questioning whether it could be used to treat the above syndromes. Although it may help you achieve homeostasis (internal balance), there isn't enough research to draw any conclusion, but it may relieve symptoms of hormonal shifts and imbalances.
It could reduce cramping and hormonal headaches, as well as interact with the serotonin receptors in your brain, leaving you more relaxed, and thereby reducing mood swings and anxiety.
1. CBD Oil
CBD oil is one of the recommended products to manage fluctuating emotions and pain from PCOS and PMS. You can choose between broad-spectrum, full-spectrum, or isolate. Either of them could work for you, and trial and error is key when figuring out your dosage.
If you feel that a once-off dose of CBD oil isn't enough for you and irritability is still on the rise, try munching on some CBD gummies to help even out your mood and headaches.
It isn't recommended, but if you cannot sit with a hot bottle/bag on your belly and you need quick relief from those, sometimes debilitating, cramps then a quick puff on a vape pen may be your best temporary solution. However, do read about the risks of vaping before you decide to do so.
In Conclusion: Words of Caution
Be sure to start with a very low dose, because too much CBD can be a system overload and trigger anxiety. If you're currently on medication, we suggest you speak to your doctor before adding it to your daily routine.
