The CBD industry is booming right now and it’s benefits are good reason for the increased popularity. Women specifically can reap the benefits of these products because conditions CBD helps alleviate often afflict women more than men. CBD is not a cure for any of the conditions discussed in this article, however it may provide pain relief, ease anxiety, and promote restful sleep.

 According to Harvard Health, women compose up to 70% of chronic pain patients, making chronic pain a women’s issue. The anti-inflammatory properties in CBD allow it to relieve many types of pain and act as a good alternative to traditional pain relievers. Those who have tried other pain relievers without success, might consider trying CBD.

CBD is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis therefore patients will experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabis while remaining clear headed. CBD has also been approved to treat epilepsy in children and there are many other studies on the way for scientific proof of the therapeutic benefits of this product. However, customers still continue to claim everything from pain relief, to lower stress and reduced anxiety, as well as improved sleep.

Common ailments that can be helped with CBD:

-Headaches

-Body aches

-Menstrual cramps

-Anxiety

-Trouble sleeping

-Stress

 Women can seek relief by using an oil tincture to relieve pain caused by menstrual cramps or sore muscles in the place of a traditional pain reliever or alongside another pain reliever for immediate and long—lasting results. For best results, simply place a dropper full of CBD oil under the tongue and hold it there for a minute before swallowing and expect results within a couple of minutes.

Women are five times more likely than men to be diagnosed with anxiety, taking CBD in the morning can be a great way to ensure a tension-free and productive day. A few gummies right after breakfast is a fun way to take a dose that tastes great too!

For those wanting to promote deep sleep, CBD taken before bed can aid in relaxation. Many customers report taking CBD before beginning their bedtime routine and being able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep, something that many women struggle with. A few drops of CBD oil in a soothing cup of chamomile tea can be extremely calming. Or try a salve stick to relieve a tense neck and shoulders.

 Healthy Women  reports that CBD may even help women with hormonal imbalances, although scientific evidence to support that claim is limited. CBD can also be used in beauty products such as lotions and bath bombs. Topicals are not only soothing and moisturizing but customers have reported CBD even acting as a toner on skin to lighten dark spots. Consult with a dermatologist before adding CBD to your skincare routine.

Anecdotal evidence from consumers demonstrates that CBD products do relieve pain and ease anxiety, two conditions that afflict women more than men and can be a natural alternative to traditional pain relievers. However, scientific evidence to support these claims is limited and you should always consult your physician before beginning any treatment or adding CBD to your regular regimen.
