CBD For Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual cramps occur just before and during a woman’s menstrual cycle, or period, and involve mild to severe pain in the lower abdomen. These cramps are caused by the normal monthly process of menstruation, commonly referred to as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), as the uterus contracts to help expel its lining. The severity of menstrual cramps varies from woman to woman, but some women say that at times they have felt so bad during their periods that they were unable to do normal everyday activities due to the pain they experienced. According to Web MD, there are several symptoms associated with menstrual cramps besides lower back pain. They include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Tender breasts
  • Leg pain radiating down the legs
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Weakness
  • Fainting spells

Can CBD Really Help With These Symptoms?

CBD, also known as Cannabidol, is a type of naturally occurring chemical compound found in cannabis plants that can be used to combat the painful symptoms of menstrual cramps and reduce inflammation. If you are looking for a natural remedy to ease your menstrual symptoms, here are three Sprightly CBD full spectrum hemp oil benefits to help you say ‘see ya later’ to PMS:

  1. Apply Sprightly’s 2000mg full spectrum CBD Salve by massaging it to the affected skin, where it will be absorbed to help with tender breast, abdomen, and lower back pain. Cannabinoids are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s no surprise that they are able to relieve severe menstrual cramps and inflammation during your time of the month.

  1. Manage stress, anxiety, and prevent mood swings with our Sprightly 300mg broad spectrum Gummies or any of our other full spectrum hemp oil drops. With its anti-anxiety properties, CBD not only inhibits the release of the stress hormone Cortisol, but also slows the breakdown of the endocannabinoid, Anandamide. Hormonal imbalance is very common during PMS and unfortunately, plays a large role in causing mood swings. CBD gummies and drops can help you recalibrate your emotional responses by interacting with your body by making sure the Endocannabinoid and Endocrine systems run smoothly so that your period has less of an effect on your hormones.

  1. You can also relieve cramping and bloating with CBD because it can improve digestive functions and reduce inflammation and nausea throughout your body. Sprightly CBD full spectrum hemp oil benefits you by helping reduce menstrual cramping and bloating, and you can also proactively prevent these symptoms by taking our fast-acting 2400mg, 1200mg, or 600mg full-spectrum hemp oil CBD drops starting a few days before your next expected period.
