Being a woman is both wonderful and equally challenging.
Monthly periods can cause mild or severe PMS in about 1/3 of women of childbearing age (1).
Perhaps you too have noticed that emotions are more intense this time of the month – and that includes irritability or depression. It’s worth knowing that these emotions are caused by hormonal fluctuations that occur before and during menstruation, so it makes sense to take steps to manage them. Trying delicious CBD-infused hemp teas might be one way to do that. For example, according to one published study, women who took 600 mg of cannabidiol (CBD) per day experienced less depression than those who received no treatment at all (2).
PMS, or premenstrual syndrome, is a condition that causes mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and other symptoms that usually begin up to 1 week before your period starts. If you’ve tried something else to relieve it in the past that hasn’t had much success, maybe it’s time to try something new – be kind to yourself and the solutions will always come to you when you’re ready!
In this blog article, I will tell you more about how and why CBD can help you with these ailments.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical component of hemp
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical component of hemp. Although CBD and THC (its more infamous sister) are often lumped together under the umbrella term “cannabis,” they are two very different things. CBD is not psychoactive—it doesn’t get you high—and it’s not addictive.
CBD hemp tea can help with PMS symptoms
As you already know, CBD and warm tea can help with a wide variety of symptoms, including pain and anxiety. CBD can help with PMS symptoms because it can stabilize your mood during your period. It can also help you sleep better, relax, and relieve pain throughout your cycle. Adding to all these aspects a cup of hot tea, with wonderful flavors from Estonian nature, we have received the perfect support!
CBD hemp tea can help you sleep better during your period
It should come as no surprise that a cup of hot CBD hemp tea can help you sleep better, relax, cope with pain and stress, and keep your mood and appetite stable. As an added bonus, our CBD hemp teas are free of all unnatural flavors and fragrances.
Some research-based facts about the benefits of CBD that could help you with PMS:
Sleep: If you have trouble falling asleep or sleeping soundly throughout your period, hemp tea may help. Studies show that CBD can reduce insomnia in people suffering from chronic pain and anxiety disorders (3). The compound also helps regulate serotonin and dopamine levels, two brain chemicals that are often out of balance during menstruation (4).
Relaxation: Natural relaxation is essential for maintaining emotional well-being during PMS, as it can reduce symptoms such as irritability and anger. In addition to reducing anxiety without causing drowsiness (as some prescription drugs do), CBD has been shown to increase positive emotions by increasing activity in certain areas of the brain associated with feelings of happiness (4).
Pain relief: Menstrual cramps can be both painful and debilitating for many women – especially if they interfere with daily activities. New research shows that taking CBD as a dietary supplement can alleviate these types of menstrual cycle symptoms by inhibiting the breakdown of endocannabinoids while activating endocannabinoid receptors in our body’s nervous system; these two processes work together to reduce inflammation throughout our brain while stabilizing blood sugar levels (5).
CBD hemp tea can help relieve pain and stress
Do you remember what our grandmothers’ favorite method of doctoring was? It was a cup of hot tea with honey! Since all our hemp teas contain CBD, when you drink hemp tea, you can find your ally in the fight against cramps, headaches, nausea and insomnia. Also, drinking hemp tea can relieve anxiety or depression.
Because CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory (6), it not only relieves pain and inflammation, but it also helps you sleep better, eat better, and feel less stressed during PMS. As an added bonus to all these benefits, CBD has been shown to reduce pain in women with endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), two conditions that are common causes of severe menstrual cramps in women.
Therefore, I encourage you to try our hemp tea flavor world and you can find relief from the worries caused by this wonderful being a woman in addition to pleasant taste experiences. Pleasant and peaceful taste journeys to you!
