Have you ever tried to use CBD oils for the pain that comes with “that time of the month?”
I don’t know about you, but I get into such a frenzy when that time comes. My period pain comes on and it’s like the end of the world. I feel like all women have to experience this at some point, right? Or is it just me?
I’ve always had extreme constipation, back pain and lower abdominal pain, highly heavy and irregular periods. But then I started birth control at the age of 15 with the hopes of “controlling the symptoms.” I actually did not have any more symptoms after starting birth control actually. So I stayed on birth control until I was 25.
The symptoms of being on birth control will be for another day. Today, I want to talk about period cramps. Period pain. The shit we as women go through. The hours with heating pads, pamprin or motrin, tons of water, and lots of resting.
So, 10 years on birth control no symptoms, I come off of birth control and now have symptoms. But I did not want to mess with my hormones, so I started to look for different ways I can assist the pain and discomfort without having to take drugs or NSAIDs.
I started to experiment with CBD oils to see if i could get some relief from my period cramps. I started with just a salve initially that I would rub on my ovaries and around my lower hip regions, low back, and around any of the areas that i was feeling pain in. This helped but it was honestly just temporary.
But then….. OMG I found it! I found the magic mixture, the help I had been looking for. I found what worked and took my pain from a 9/10 to a 1/10 and allowed me to work and allowed me move. I was able to do my work and I was able to not have to miss work due to the pain.
So what was it that I found????
Was it CBD???
YES, it was. But it was a different way to use it.
I would continue using the salve as needed, but I also would use a 500-1000 mg elixir 3 times a day, about 4 drops each time. This would help to go into my bloodstream and decrease the pain I was experiencing.
I’m not kidding when I say this works. It was successful and I share it with all of my patients!!!
