CBD oil and endometriosis: what's the point?
According to the Ministry of Solidarity and Health, endometriosis affects more than one in ten French women of childbearing age. This inflammatory gynecological disease results in the development of tissues similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) outside the uterine cavity, such as in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder and other pelvic organs.
The symptoms of the endometrium can be varied, but it is obviously pain which turns out to be the most disabling symptom in daily life. This may include pelvic pain, particularly painful menstruation, more or less pronounced discomfort during sexual intercourse, etc. And this is where the analgesic, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD come into play.
CBD oil and endometriosis: how does it work?
Endometriosis has two characteristics that argue in favor of the use of CBD oil to improve the quality of life of those who suffer from it: the painful symptoms and the inflammatory nature of the disease.
The CBD oils that we offer act on four levels to limit the repercussions of this chronic illness on your daily life:
Anti-inflammatory effect. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (SEC) to limit inflammation of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. By soothing the inflammation, the pain also decreases in intensity for better management of the disease;
Pain management. In addition to this indirect relief, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, particularly at the level of receptors CB1 and CB2 scattered throughout the body, to reduce the perception of pain in women with endometriosis;
Soothing and relaxing action. Like all chronic illnesses, Endometriosis can cause chronic stress and even episodes of anxiety in women who suffer from it. CBD oil mobilizes its anxiolytic and calming properties to help manage the psychological side of the disease;
Muscle relaxation. CBD oil can help relax muscles, especially if they are abnormally tight. This is sometimes the case in women who suffer from endometriosis, particularly in the pelvis, because of pelvic pain and cramps. This relaxing action again contributes to pain relief.
CBD endometriosis oil: instructions for use
Choose from our broad spectrum endometriosis CBD oils (broad spectrum) and full spectrum (full spectrum). The “entourage” effect is guaranteed by the presence of a large part or all of the non-psychotropic cannabinoids of the hemp plant such as CBG, CBN and CBC (depending on the model).
Choose the concentration of your CBD oil depending on your experience with legal hemp and the intensity of the pain. Beginners will opt for a 5 or 10% endometriosis CBD oil, while regulars will prefer a well-dosed oil (20% or more) to relieve their symptoms.
As in all cases that involve pain and inflammation, we will opt for a method of consumption with rapid, even immediate effects: sublingual. Simply place a few drops of CBD oil under the tongue, wait a minute then ingest the remaining liquid if necessary. In this way, the CBD quickly passes through the sublingual mucosa and ends up in the bloodstream. It will express its pain-relieving effects and anti-inflammatory properties in a few minutes.
Increase the dose by a few grams every week depending on your body's response, until you find the optimal minimum dosage. Attention: for it to be effective, CBD requires sustained and regular consumption in order to accumulate in your body. Be patient.
