CBD e ciclo menstrual

CBD and menstrual cycle

We want to help break taboos and fears regarding the use of CBD - the source of countless therapeutic properties.

Understanding what CBD is, its relationship with our endocannabinoid system (ECCB) and its effects on our menstrual cycle will definitely help.

You probably didn't even know that within our biological system there is a system called endocannabinoid, which is a neurotransmitter reception complex present in the human body and that plays a crucial role in regulating various physiological functions. SECB is composed of three main components: endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors and metabolic enzymes - responsible for the synthesis and catalysis of these compounds. These chemicals, naturally produced by the body, are similar to the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

Two of the main endocannabinoids are anandamide and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG). These compounds interact with cannabinoid receptors present in the cells of the body, mainly the CB1 and CB2* receptors.

*CB1 receptors: Found primarily in the central nervous system, they outnumber many of the other types of receptors in the brain, controlling the levels and activity of most other neurotransmitters, regulating the activity of any part of our system that needs to be adjusted.
CB2 receptors: found mainly in the peripheral nervous system and immune cells, their action is essential to control our immune functioning, inflammation, contraction and pain.

SECB plays an essential role in regulating diverse functions such as immune response, mood, memory, sleep and appetite. In addition, it is also involved in regulating the female reproductive system, including the menstrual cycle.

CBD or Cannabidiol is one of hundreds of natural molecules present in the hemp plant. Hemp or Cannabis Sativa L., is a plant belonging to the Cannabaceae family.

From the industrial hemp plant, which has no psychoactive properties, different natural molecules called "phytocannabinoids" are extracted. Among the more than 100 phytocannabinoids identified so far, the best known and most used are THC and CBD.

CBD, unlike THC, does not have psychoactive effects, on the contrary, it helps to neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC.

During the menstrual cycle, several hormonal changes occur that affect the SECB. Scientific studies have shown that the use of cannabidiol (CBD) can be beneficial for the regulation of SECB during the menstrual cycle.
CBD is known to have anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antidepressant, muscle relaxant, antiemetic (anti-nausea), anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, and antipsychotic properties. These properties can help relieve common menstrual cycle symptoms such as abdominal pain, cramping, bloating and irritability. In addition, CBD can also help balance neurotransmitter levels in the brain, providing a calming effect and reducing anxiety and stress associated with menstruation.

The use of CBD during the menstrual cycle can be done in different formulas, such as oils, capsules, creams or vaporizers. It is important to emphasize again that CBD does not have the psychoactive properties associated with the recreational use of cannabis, therefore, its use is safe and does not interfere with the ability to perform daily activities. Cannabidiol (CBD) modulates some mechanisms that already exist in our body. In essence, when an imbalance occurs in our body, the modulation provided by cannabidiol (CBD) - which acts, for example, on the immune system or indirectly in an inflammatory process - tends to restore the original balance. Thus, the action of CBD implies an indirect modulation on an alteration of the SECB caused by a condition or trauma.

CBD extraction is carried out on the basis of cannabis varieties registered in the European Community Registry and accepted for cultivation for industrial use. It is low-THC Sativa L cannabis (always below 0.2% as required by law). Initially, a crude extract of the hemp plant is obtained. In this extract there are many components of the plant: CBD and smaller amounts of other cannabinoids, chlorophyll, wax, terpenes and everything that can be extracted from the plant is found in the first stage of extraction that looks like a dark molasses and that preserves the whole spectrum of hemp plant molecules. From this first extract, there are several refining stages that gradually lead to an increasing purity of the final product.

In summary, the SECB plays a crucial role in regulating many physiological functions, including the menstrual cycle. Using CBD during this time can help balance this system, relieving menstrual symptoms and providing a sense of well-being.
