CBD for Women: Why Is It so Beneficial?

November 01, 2018

Since the beginning of time, women have had a very special bond with cannabis. Not only has it been historically used by women across the globe, but cannabinoids are even produced in breast milk.

CBD for women? For a long time, cannabis use (and smoking in general) was often regarded as more masculine, but that really couldn’t be further from the truth. These days, more American women use cannabis than men and the reasons behind this are much more scientific than one would expect. We all have cannabinoid receptors in our bodies already, and women just so happen to have more than men. Because of this, cannabinoids can have vastly different effects on woman compared to men.

In this article, we’ll discuss a few of the ways CBD (cannabidiol) can be beneficial specially for women. CBD for women? Let’s begin.

Reducing Pain

Many Americans suffer from chronic pain, but women are likely to suffer longer and more severely. CBD has long been studied and utilized for its amazing pain-fighting properties. It’s effective but much safer than traditional painkillers, which often have unwanted side effects and can lead to addiction and overdose. CBD can be used for all kinds of pain including ongoing issues, migraines, and even menstrual cramps.

Easing Anxiety

Women of all ages and races have been found more likely than men to suffer from anxiety.  Xanax is a very common treatment option for anxiety, along with other drugs from the benzodiazepine class and sometimes even tranquilizers. Unfortunately, these drugs are saddled with a long list of negative side effects, as is the case with many standard drug treatment options. CBD can be used as a natural alternative to treat anxiety with virtually no side effects, which is why it’s becoming increasingly popular for anxiety sufferers.

Inflammation

Inflammation is the root cause of many chronic diseases and autoimmune issues, and women are twice as likely to have it as men. When the immune system is compromised, chemicals from the blood are released to protect the body from whatever is attacking it whether it be injury or tissue damage related to illness. This is when inflammation occurs. Around 75% percent of Americans living with inflammation are women. Anti-inflammatory drugs are the current go-to treatment, but many are turning to CBD as it’s safer and more effective, and once again, they don’t have to deal with additional side effects.

CBD for women? Conclusion

To summarize, CBD is an amazing supplement to incorporate into your health routine and it can have a tremendous impact on your body. Talk to a medical professional that you trust before stopping any current medications.

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century.

Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
