You’ve probably heard the buzz about medical marijuana by now. It’s also called CBD (Cannabidiol). Even if you have pain, anxiety or other conditions, you may have discounted using it --- even in states where it is legal --- because of the stigma that surrounds “getting high.” CBD provides all the medical benefits of marijuana without the feeling of being high. There are actually numerous health benefits attributed to this substance, particularly for women.
Chronic pain plagues many women. Some have no known cause for their pain, while others have Fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, arthritis, genetic disorders or other conditions that cause pain. CBD offers natural pain relief so your symptoms are minimized and you do not have to take medications like ibuprofen to tame them. CBD knocks down inflammation, offering relief to one of the main causes of pain.
Women are among the largest group of people to use prescription drugs for anxiety. Drugs like Xanax and Valium, while useful, have the potential to be addictive and cause drowsiness and other side effects. CBD eases anxiety for those who use it. CBD hemp oil is a safe, non-addictive alternative that will ease your anxieties and make you feel much more “calm and collected” without that fuzzy, disconnected feeling.
Acne is something many women suffer from at some point in their lives. Hormones can cause breakouts at various times in a woman’s life, from puberty to menopause. CBD works to reduce inflammation and acne is often a result of inflammation and infection of the sebaceous glands and pores. With this inflammation reduced, there will be a reduction in the acne as well.
If you use CBD to treat a condition that you have you won’t experience the “high” feeling that comes from the THC in pot, but you will still experience the many medical advantages CBD offers. If you’ve used CBD please tell us about your experience below.
