With most moms having to celebrate Mother's Day in quarantine this year, many children and loved ones are looking for gifts that can provide comfort, calm and relief at home. CBD products are the perfect relaxing and holistic remedy sure to to benefit any mom.
CBD has been changing the way people view holistic health and well being- especially women. With the ability to alleviate dozens of physical and emotional conditions, from anxiety to menstrual cramps, CBD is proving to be a game changer in the field of women’s health. Here we delve into how CBD can remedy several symptoms unique to a woman’s body and motherhood- specifically PMS, postpartum depression, and menopause- and recommend a few products that would make the perfect gift for Mothers Day:
The uterus contains extremely high levels of cannabinoid anandamide, or more commonly referred to as the ‘bliss molecule’. When estrogen levels are low (like before and during a woman’s period), these bliss molecules are lacking, causing extreme mood dips and irritability. These mood swings, combined with cramp pain, creates what is often referred to as PMS. CBD works with human endocannabinoid system (ECS) signals to increase receptor function and help enhance mood levels, balance hormone levels, and ease pain and anxiety.
Postpartum depression is often characterized by anxiety, mood swings, and insomnia, prompted by a dramatic drop in hormone levels (namely estrogen and progesterone). As explained above, CBD has been shown to affect certain brain receptors, helping balance hormone levels and ease anxiety. CBD has also been linked to serotonin, a powerful neurotransmitter linked to mood, that is often linked to anti-anxiety and anti-depression symptoms.
Menopause is prompted by reduced estrogen production. This decreased estrogen level triggers a reduction of endocannabinoid signaling, which results in mood swings, anxiety and depression. Similar to PMS, CBD can help increase endocannabinoid receptivity, helping stave off these mood swings and ultimately increase well being.
