One of the fastest growing groups turning to CBD for natural healing is women. The uses are many, the most popular of which are below. For those unfamiliar with CBD, it is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC products CBD does not get you high and it is legal in all 50 states.
Some women’s PMS is so severe that it negatively impacts their lives for a full week each month. From cramps to mood swings, headaches, and insomnia. Many women have learned to live with it turning to over-the-counter anti-inflammatories to help ease their symptoms—but CBD can help. CBD has been found to address both the physical and emotional stressors of PMS, by boosting feel-good hormones that improve the mood, reducing inflammation and cramps, promoting relaxation, and regulating sleep.
Chronic Pain And Autoimmune Diseases
It is estimated that 18% of women suffer from chronic pain, compared to that of 7% of men. Chronic pain means there is chronic inflammation—which over time increases the risk for a variety of health concerns. CBD can topically address pain in a targeted manner and be used as a tincture to soothe internal inflammation. This includes chronic pain and the pain and inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, and more.
CBD For Your Skin
CBD oil can be applied topically or taken internally as a tincture, both of which pack powerful beauty benefits. CBD is naturally rich in beauty-boosting antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E. Together these vitamins help keep skin firm and youthful and minimize premature wrinkles. CBD also helps to reduce inflammation and regulate the production of acne-causing sebum. It has been found to gently address skin allergies, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis. The best method is to apply a few drops to your skincare products and take a supplement or oil internally at least 3 days a week.
CBD For Your Hair
CBD is rich in hair-healthy fatty acids, Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega 9. If you struggle with dry, itchy, or flakey skin CBD oil can help. Massage directly into your scalp or add a drop or two to your hair products. It will soothe internal inflammation and can be used topically to stimulate hair growth.
