Menstrual cramps and CBD

Menstrual cramps have been a torment for a long time. However, CBD for is very effective and safe to use.

Painful menstruation is known as dysmenorrhea. For premenopausal women, a layer builds up in the uterus every month. This lining is shed at the end of the menstrual cycle, unless a pregnancy has occurred during this period.

To remove this coating, the muscles begin to constantly contract and relax, until the coating flows out of the body. These irregular muscle contraction and relaxation movements within a woman's lower abdomen often cause cramping and the typical associated pain.

CBD oil to relieve pain

CBD is a strong pain reliever with no adverse effects, as proven by multiple scientific studies.

In most cases, the pain of menstrual cramps can be greatly relieved with birth control pills or anti-inflammatory medications. Almost every woman who suffers from menstrual pain has tried at least some of these Big Pharma drugs.
While there is currently no specific research on the effects of CBD and/or cannabis in relation to menstrual cramps, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence flooding the world. In relation to menstrual cramps, CBD has been scientifically proven to be effective in:

Ease the pain
cure inflammation
Relieve spasticity and cramps (muscle relaxant)
Balance mood swings

Long-term side effects of birth control pills

Mood swings and other emotional problems
blood clots
facial brown spots
reduced sexual desire
Breast tenderness

Laboratory studies

There is significant evidence providing the efficacy of CBD against pain, inflammation and cramps.

Endometriosis is a disorder with severe menstrual cramps as one of the symptoms.

A laboratory study in 2016 investigated the number of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors in women with endometriosis and compared them to those levels in women without endometriosis. The study draws a parallel between severe pain and cramping during menstruation and an imbalance in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body.
And as we all know, CBD (or cannabis in general) works to restore balance to the endocannabinoid system.

This would explain why so many women claim that CBD is giving them a pain free period.

Clinical studies

So far, we have no information on clinical trials for the treatment of menstrual spasms and cramps with CBD. But there is a lot of evidence that CBD and cannabis are very effective with spasms related to multiple sclerosis.

A study on fibromyalgia pain in 2014 showed that medical cannabis was much more effective than the three FDA-approved drugs.

Symptoms of mild menstrual pain

Start with 30 or 40 mg per day divided into two doses and record the results. You yourself will feel when a raise is needed. If so, increase by 10mg a day, monitor and maintain that level, or add another 10mg.

Symptoms of severe menstrual pain

Start with 60 or 70 mg a day in two or three doses and record the results. You can find the right dosage level by taking 10mg incremental steps and noting everything as discussed above.
