CBD and PMS: how to lighten your premenstrual syndrome

Arthur Leclerc

The week preceding the period can be, for some women, synonymous with physical and emotional problems; this is called premenstrual syndrome or “PMS”.

The most common symptoms are manifested in the form of abdominal pain and breasts becoming more sensitive. Mood swings are also observed, which can generate anxiety or even depression.

Potential for relief

There is no specific treatment for PMS, but there are remedies that can help relieve these symptoms.

This is particularly the case for cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, one of the chemical compounds present in the cannabis plant and renowned for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This molecule is attracting increasing interest due to the potential of its therapeutic properties to relieve the symptoms of PMS.

Preliminary studies show that CBD can relieve abdominal pain and cramps associated with PMS. Work in 2018 found that using cannabidiol resulted in a significant reduction in pain in women with PMS. Another concordant study carried out on mice confirmed this reduction in inflammatory markers thanks to the molecule.

When it comes to emotional disturbances, research conducted in 2020 showed that CBD use resulted in a significant reduction in anxiety and depression in women with PMS.

It should be noted that most studies on the use of CBD to relieve these symptoms have been carried out in animals and that additional studies are necessary to accurately assess the effectiveness of the molecule in humans. However, the first results are promising and the benefits speak for themselves.

Options to relieve your symptoms

To relieve the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, various options are available to you:

  • CBD Oil, for a long-lasting effect,
  • Vaping, for a quick effect,
  • Capsules, for a more lasting effect,
  • Cosmetics, for local applications on painful areas.

Daily use of CBD for PMS is quite simple. Start with the dosage suggested on the products and increase slightly until you feel relief.

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, CBD is a real alternative to relieve the symptoms of PMS.
