It is no secret that CBD has been around for a long time. With all the wonderful things it can do for one’s health we took it a step further and decided ladies need a little love too!
Queen Victoria (who’s reign began in June 1837 and continued until her death in January 1901) used CBD-Rich Cannabis for menstrual Cramps in the 19th century. So, this method of relief is not a new thing.
Our Feminine Support Tincture is however new. Introducing our newest product particularly made to help the female body is very exciting! The CBD can be used to help uterine muscles in the body relax, as well as help balance emotional highs and lows (relative to people who use CBD for anxiety). This helps with Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).
Up to 80% of women may suffer from physical or emotional symptoms caused by premenstrual syndrome (PMS). These symptoms are very likely caused by sensitivity to the hormone prolactin. Gamma-linolencic acid (GLA) found in hemp seeds, produces prostaglandin E1, which reduces the effects of prolactin.
Studies have been done that show women with PMS, taking one gram of essential fatty acids (including 210 mg of GLA) per day resulted in a significant decrease in symptoms. Other studies have shown that primrose oil, which is rich in GLA, may be highly effective in reducing symptoms for women who have failed other PMS therapies. It decreased breast pain and tenderness, depression, irritability and fluid retention associated with PMS.
Because hemp seeds are high in GLA, several studies have indicated that hemp seeds may also help reduce the symptoms of menopause. Exactly how this works is unknown, but it has been suggested that the GLA in hemp seeds may help to regulate the hormone imbalances and inflammation associated with menopause.
