Hemp oil (CBD) to relieve menstrual cramps 😣

Hemp oil (CBD) to relieve menstrual cramps
Menstrual cramps have been a problem since the dawn of humanity. Most women suffer in silence as the established medical system offers few working remedies. However, CBD for menstrual cramps is very effective and safe to use.

According to a study conducted, 84% of women have had menstrual pain, and 43% reported having pain during each period. Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for painful menstruation. For premenopausal women, a layer builds up in the uterus every month. This lining is shed at the end of the menstrual cycle, unless, of course, pregnancy has occurred during this period.

To remove this coating, the muscles begin to constantly contract and relax, until the layer flows out of the body. These irregular muscle movements of contraction and relaxation within a woman's lower abdomen often cause cramps and the typical pain related to that.


CBD is a strong pain reliever with no adverse effects, as proven by multiple scientific studies.

In some cases, the pain of menstrual cramps can be reduced or completely relieved with hormonal birth control pills or anti-inflammatory medications such as NSAIDs, as research has shown.

Almost every woman who suffers from period pain has tried at least some of these Big Pharma medications. Although there is no specific research so far on the effects of CBD or cannabis in relation to menstrual cramps, there is a wave of anecdotal evidence flooding the world.

In relation to menstrual cramps, CBD has been scientifically proven to be effective in:

  • Ease the pain
  • Cure inflammation
  • Relieve spasticity and cramps (muscle relaxant)
  • Balance mood swings

Long-term side effects of birth control pills:

  • Nausea
  • Distension
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings and other emotional problems
  • blood clots
  • Facial brown spots
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Breast tenderness

Side effects of NSAIDs

In addition to the fact that NSAIDs have shown rather weak results in scientific medical research working with only 31 out of 100 girls and women, there are serious risks associated with regular use of NSAIDs:

  • Allergy
  • liver problems
  • Renal problems
  • Ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems
  • Increased risk of heart failure

What is CBD oil, also known as hemp, hemp, cannabidiol or cannabis, and what is it for?

Medical cannabis to relieve menstrual pain

Laboratory studies.

There is significant evidence providing CBD's effectiveness against pain, inflammation, and cramps.

A study carried out on endometriosis (occurring when small parts of the tissue that lines the uterus (endometrium) grow in other pelvic organs, such as the ovaries or fallopian tubes) in rats shows that endocannabinoids could regulate the innervation of abnormal growths of the disease and that exogenous cannabinoid agents may be effective in reducing the symptoms of endometriosis. Endometriosis is a disorder with severe menstrual cramps as one of the symptoms.

This study gives hope for CBD as a promising new direction in developing much-needed new treatments for the pain experienced by women with menstrual cramps.

A laboratory study in 2016 investigated the number of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors in women with endometriosis and compared them to those levels in women without endometriosis. The study draws a parallel between severe pain and cramping during menstruation and an imbalance in the endocannabinoid system in the body.

And as we all know, CBD (or cannabis in general) works to restore balance to the endocannabinoid system. This would explain why so many women claim that CBD is giving them a pain-free period.

Clinical studies.

In 2010, scientists from the New Zealand Obstetrics and Gynecology Group, the Cochrane Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Group, conducted a clinical trial of the effectiveness of NSAIDs in relation to dysmenorrhea. The study, although concluding that NSAIDs are effective, warns about the "significant risk of adverse effects."

Six years later, this 2010 study was revised, revealing that only 31 out of 100 girls or women experienced pain relief with NSAIDs. However, they did note that in some cases adverse effects were reported in the time period of these tests alone. Taking this into account, one can only assume that long-term use would be even worse.

So far, we have not found information on clinical trials for the treatment of menstrual spasms and cramps with CBD or cannabis. But there is a ton of clinical evidence that CBD and cannabis are very effective with spasms and cramps related to multiple sclerosis.

A study on fibromyalgia pain in 2014 showed that medical marijuana was much more effective than the three FDA-approved medications.

Anecdotal studies

Dr. Ethan Russo of the University of Washington wrote a study in 2002 in which he mentions that cannabis was used to mitigate pain in difficult births dating back to 2000 BC. He also writes that there is evidence that cannabis was used as medicine for women since the Egyptian pharaonic times of 1534 BC.

Some evidence suggests that this may have happened as early as 3000 BC.

Dr. Russo's historical review even notes that in China, as described in an ancient book (1596) by Li-Shih-Chen, cannabis flowers were used for menstrual disorders.

New York State Assembly Bill A00582 is ordered for third reading. If approved, New York will be the first state to add dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps) to the list of conditions covered for the legal medical use of marijuana.
