Anyone else finds it odd that half the human population suffers from Menstrual cramps, yet thereâ€™s very little out there to relieve this monthly pain?
So for those who are tired of getting the cliche “, it must be that time of the month” comment from their friends and family, alas there have been pioneers (sic) who have ventured in finding relief in the form of CBD. Yes CBD, that thing from that plant that less than a quarter of the country still thinks makes you a lazy (insert stereotype here).
Countless prominent women like Whoopi Goldberg and even Queen Victoria herself realized and use(d) different forms of Cannabis to alleviate symptoms such as nausea, cramps, and pains and went on to share that with the public.
Taking CBD pills, make a perfect introduction for thoseÂ who are looking for pain relief, but donâ€™t normally use cannabis. Although CBD is a cannabinoid, like THC, it doesnâ€™t have any psychoactive properties, meaning no need to cancel your day or worry about getting behind the wheel just because you took a CBD pill.
Although many pharmaceutical companies have fought hard to stop research, there have been trailblazers who have run studies that have shown Cannabis to be an amazingÂ treatment for differentÂ types of pain.
For example, theÂ plantâ€™s cannabinoids interact with your bodyâ€™s endocannabinoid system, specifically your CB1 and CB2 receptors. Studies haveÂ found that CB1 and CB2 receptors exist in cells within the uterus. This organic romance brings about what many will soon begin to realize is a beautiful advancement in using more natural and organic remedies in living without the dreaded pains and symptoms they’ve had to live with quietly for so long.
