You know how it goes: You are humming along, busy bee that you are, facing your day-to-day challenges head on when Aunt Flo rears her ugly head again and pops in for yet another unwelcome visit.
You are a strong woman. You are built tough. You can handle anything. But wouldn’t it be great if you had a little something extra to take the edge off every month? Of course it would — and there’s no shame in looking!
Get ready to take your menstrual health into your own hands with full spectrum CBD, a safe and natural medicine that helps to relieve the worst symptoms of period pain every month and beyond.
Full spectrum CBD is a specific type of Cannabidiol (CBD) extract that contains the widest variety of beneficial cannabis-derived compounds, including Cannabigerol, Cannabinol, and terpenes. Thanks to a neuromodulatory biological process called the entourage effect, these cannabinoids work together to strengthen and enhance your CBD’s effectiveness so that it relieves period pain, inflammation, skin breakouts, insomnia, mood swings, irritability, and stress.

Reduced Period Pain

Don’t let your period get in the way of you being your best! CBD reduces symptom clusters of period discomfort, like pelvic pain, nausea, GI pain, depression, and even low libido, so you can get back to doing what you love. Many women find that just a small dose of CBD is enough to minimize their period cramps. CBD can even be effective if you have a menstrual disorder that causes abnormally strong pain. Clinical research from 2021 found that CBD could drastically reduce pain associated with endometriosis. CBD does a great job relieving the general achiness, discomfort, and migraines you might get during your period. If your main issue is intense muscle spasms, make sure to pick an oil that contains CBN, or, better yet, choose a CBN oil to take together in combination with your full spectrum CBD oil for maximum period pain relief. Some research indicates that CBN does a better job of targeting pain associated with muscle cramps especially.

Decreased Inflammation

You might not notice the symptoms of chronic inflammation right away. But over time, inflammation causes a host of health issues. The problem occurs when your body creates higher numbers of white blood cells, which is associated with swelling, redness, and fever. Inflammation is typically a response to an illness or injury, but in some cases, it can linger on long after you heal. You can think of inflammation as the dial on your radio stuck at a high volume and not being able to be turned down. The good news is CBD oil can help stop inflammation in its tracks. Medical analysis in animal models demonstrates that a cannabis oil with both CBD and Cannabigerol (CBG) is the most effective natural treatment option for inflammation. By getting inflammation under control, you can stop joint pain, lower blood pressure, curtail oxidative stress and reduce your chance of experiencing diabetes and cancer. 

Better Skin Health

Swallowing full spectrum CBD tinctures isn't the only way to get the benefits of CBD and CBG oil. Did you know you can also use the same cannabis oil you take internally as a topical skin treatment? Studies have found that applying CBG and CBD onto your skin can help make it look healthy and glowing. Part of the effect seems to be due to the substance's anti-inflammatory benefits. The oils reduce inflammation, so your skin looks less red and swollen. CBG also has antioxidant effects that may reduce wrinkles, dullness, and other signs of aging. 

Improved Sleep

If you tend to deal with long, sleepless nights, CBD oil can make a huge difference. Many women with chronic insomnia swear by their CBD tinctures. Taking CBD can make it a little easier to fall asleep. Instead of laying wide awake stressing about your inability to sleep, you can drift off naturally. Some research also indicates that CBD may give you a better quality of sleep. Patients with certain types of REM sleep disorders found that CBD reduced nighttime disruptions, so they could wake up feeling more rested and refreshed. Different cannabinoids tend to impact your sleep in different ways. One of the most effective options for falling asleep faster tends to be CBN oil, while CBD oil can help you stay asleep longer.

Less Stress and Anxiety

Don't let everyday stress wear you down, especially when you’re having your period. CBD can help you manage stress in a healthier, more natural way. Though CBD doesn't magically get rid of your stress for you, it increases your stress tolerance and makes the tough stuff you go through easier to process, which is a lifesaver when you’re dealing with your period to boot. In one study, 80% of test subjects reported reduced anxiety after a month of taking CBD. This is important because it keeps you from repeatedly worrying over things you cannot control. Whether you have an anxiety disorder or simply struggle with day-to-day challenges, CBD can reduce unnecessary fear, worry, and stress.
Final Thoughts
Next time Aunt Flo comes knocking, you let her know that you’ve got something special just for her. CBD or a combination of CBD along with CBG or CBN can finally put the kibosh on the worst she’s got. But why stop there? Cannabis oils have so many promising and life-changing benefits, why not take it every day to promote a better you period pain or not?
