Unfortunately, upwards of 80% of women suffer from hormone imbalances. Though some symptoms are painful and obvious, others are more subtle; and while many women are aware of what's happening to them, others remain in the dark as to the true source of their symptoms. 

  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Persistent weight gain
  • Sleeplessness
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Headaches
  • Infertility

For women who have confirmed a diagnosis in this area, the next step is to discover how best to treat their imbalance.

To deal with their symptoms and better regulate their hormones, many women are turning to CBD.

3 Reasons Why Women are Choosing CBD for Hormonal Imbalances

Though everyone's reasons will vary, these are three of the top reasons why many women have turned to CBD for help with regulating their hormone imbalances. 

1. Taking CBD oil boosts your Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

Though this may sound like medical jargon, the benefits of CBD on your ECS are very real.

Doctors still don't fully understand how this cell-signaling system works but know it has three components: enzymes, endocannabinoids, and two types of receptors, CB1 and CB2. Its primary function is to control how your body releases the neurotransmitters that affect nerve impulses. (Net Doctor)

Because the ECS is involved in fertility and pregnancy, boosting its function can confer hormonal benefits, and many women who take CBD report positive results. 

2. CBD can lessen the dreaded effects of PMS.

As any person who menstruates will tell you, the premenstrual phase of the cycle is rough.

Those who suffer with PMS often deal with the following issues:

  • Mood swings
  • Back aches
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Cramps

These symptoms are often linked to the natural increase of the hormone progesterone and the depletion of estrogen that takes place at this point in the menstruation cycle.

Remarkably, there is some evidence that links CBD both to estrogen and progesterone. More studies are needed, but there are links between CBD use, more balanced hormones, and less severe PMS.

3. CBD may help regulate hormone fluctuations during menopause.

During menopause, women's bodies change drastically. This includes how their bodies handle hormone production.

In lieu of hormone replacement therapy, many women are turning to more natural measures. One of those measures is CBD.

CBD-infused tinctures, bath salts, vaginal suppositories, and personal lubricants are just a few of the products being marketed to menopausal consumers. (Healthline)

While the "jury is still out" on their overall effectiveness, CBD products to treat menopause are widely available, and many women swear by them. In addition to the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD, women who treat their menopausal symptoms in this way offer anecdotal evidence of a reduction of a wide variety of symptoms.

While only time (and some peer-reviewed medical studies) will ultimately tell, women who are looking for relief in the here and now should be aware that CBD-infused products are always an option.

Of course, consulting with an expert is always key to finding the best and safest treatments for treating symptoms of menopause—or any hormone fluctuations.
