HOW IS CANNABIDIOL DIFFERENT FROM MARIJUANA?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

Queen Victoria reportedly relied on cannabis for her menstrual cramps, as directed by her royal physician. Today, however, most women rely on medications such as Advil and Naprogesic to get through menstrual cramps.

CBD and PMS
We’ve discussed the benefits of CBD for menstrual cramps, but taking CBD for PMS is so popular that it deserves a mention too. PMS or premenstrual syndrome is caused by hormonal changes leading up to the period in the luteal phase of a woman’s cycle. The most commonly discussed symptom of PMS is mood swings, leading to inexplicable sadness or stress before the start of the period. The ECS has the ability to regulate the production of neurotransmitters in the brain, and supporting it with CBD could make mood swings less extreme. Other symptoms of PMS include acne breakouts and tender breasts, both of which CBD might be able to help with. As an anti-inflammatory agent, it could slow down the growth of inflammatory breakouts, and if applied topically, could bring balance to sebum production in the skin. CBD also regulates the vanilloid receptor that modulates pain perception, which is why it could help with generalized muscle soreness. Using CBD for PMS is common among women biohackers
