With the tremendous popularity of Hemp, women are now discovering its ability to help their bodies and minds run smoothly. Hemp shows amazing promise for numerous women’s health issues, and also for health challenges that affect a high percentage of women. Here are some of the top ways to incorporate Hemp for women’s wellness.
While definitely not a women’s-only health issue, anxiety impacts women more frequently than men (by as much as 24 percent). It also often goes hand-in-hand with women’s health disorders like PMS, PMDD, postpartum depression, menopause, and other hormone-related imbalances. Hemp works to decrease anxiety by modulating brain activity in response to anxiety triggers. Whether your anxiety is situational, occasional, or brought on by hormone cycles, Hemp can help you feel better at any time of the month.
Menstrual and Pre-Menstrual Symptoms
Hemp can be effective at addressing issues correlated with PMS, like irritability and sleeplessness, but it shows potential for more than just mood relief, since it’s also been shown to address pain. Hemp can block compounds that are associated with pain sensations. This could translate to an ability to help alleviate pain from period cramps and the lower back pain often associated with menstrual cycles.
According to research, menopause is one of the top three reasons women use cannabis products. The modern medical system is still struggling to meet the needs of peri- and post-menopausal women, so many of them turn to traditional herbal remedies for support. In the years before menopause (perimenopause), estrogen levels can swing high and low, causing aches and joint pain, mood swings, and sleep disruptions. Hemp can help mitigate many of these symptoms.
Endometriosis is a painful, chronic condition where the uterine tissue grows outside the uterus. It is estimated that 175 million women worldwide suffer from this disorder, and medical treatment options can be limited. Women with high levels of endometrial pain had lower levels of anandamide, an endocannabinoid associated with feelings of happines and well being. Hemp enhances anandamide signaling in the body, and can reduce sensations of pain associated with endometriosis. However, there is also research to suggest that Hemp can mitigate not just the pain of endometriosis, but acts to reduce the proliferation of endometriotic cells.
Hemp works within your body and brain’s systems to help even out your mood, relax anxiety, and reduce pain. And if that wasn’t enough, Hemp helps you get a restful night’s sleep, which is the ultimate blessing when you are suffering from discomfort or anxiety.
