Menstrual pain and endometriosis: how can CBD oil relieve them?
Some people call them: “ragnagnas”, rules, “tricks” or even “the landing”… Does this mean anything to you ladies?
Dear readers, let me introduce you to the subject of our article:
Menstrual pain, a burden for many women since… the dawn of humanity.
Indeed, this is a very special moment! Since her symptoms vary from woman to woman with pain sometimes bordering on unbearable.
But let’s go into the details to better understand.
To begin with, here are the figures that emerge from a study carried out for the 20 Minutes out of 350 women:
“…more than a third of the non-menopausal women who were surveyed have quite painful menstruation (33%) even very painful (12 %). Even those on hormonal contraception suffer (29% have quite painful periods, 8% very painful). And overall, a majority of women are embarrassed by their periods, whether in their professional life (56%), their private life (67%) or their sexual life (59%)”.
We will now take a quick look at the symptoms and their origins, and above all how CBD oil can help you during your menstruation.
Physical: Inflammation and pain spread from the lower abdomen and lower back, heavy legs, nausea, headaches, fatigue or diarrhoea.
Behavioural: Impact on the quality of private and professional life, mental workload, mood changes.
Contractions are the main cause of pain, but where do they come from?
After ovulation and in the absence of fertility, our hormonal system will stop producing oestrogen and progesterone.
The endometrium will then secrete more prostaglandins which will create the contractions, being at the origin of the strongest pain.
But how can we relieve these contractions and also soothe the mind in order to live this recurring event as well as possible?
CBD oil may be an effective natural remedy for this ailment. We will explain it to you.
Effects of CBD oil
Against contractions there was a clear decrease of inflammation which often causes the most discomfort during menstruation.
Comme expliqué dans l’article:“Natural pain therapy, CBD oil”., CBD molecules will allow a partial elimination of the body’s receptivity to pain.
CBD oil will also reduce the risk of nausea, thanks to the activation of endocannabinoid receptors. These receptors will have a beneficial action on this unpleasant sensation.
The CBD oil has as a reminder the ability to be anti-stress. This will provide women with significant general relief during this complicated time.It will also rebalance the hormonal system and allow for a better emotional stability.
Endometriosis is a disease of the endometrium that causes, among other things, severe pain and cramps during menstruation.
Alternative medicine including CBD oil is recommended to soothe patients from the stress caused.
For example, the Swiss association Living with endometriosis indicated in one of its headings:
“In the case of endometriosis, the endometrium, present on the outside of the uterus, can cause bleeding which releases inflammatory mediators causing violent pain. Several studies show that the CBD molecule has anti-inflammatory properties.
Numerous other studies have demonstrated the proven analgesic effects of CBD, which provides relief where conventional painkillers sometimes don’t work or no longer work”.
A minimum of 20% CBD oil is recommended for an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. If the peaks of pain are very strong you can take CBD oil at 30%. But it will be less effective over time as an anti-inflammatory.

During your period, it is advisable not to smoke or drink.
This will effectively reduce the number of toxins in your body and allow your body to better react and properly assimilate natural remedies such as CBD oil.
